Sambaville Hostel

Sambaville Hostel is an amazing bargain. It's right in the heart of Lapa - the lively (but edgy) nightlife district, and you can tell by the fact that the first thing you see is a glitter ball and a giant bar that this is not the place to come and catch up on your sleep. A bed in an AC dorm is just R$19, about half the price of many hostels in the city. I visited here because a friend was performing with his band - there's live music on most nights and a real party atmosphere. Given than a taxi back to Ipanema could set you back about R$35, staying here is a good bet if you want a night out in Lapa. [more ]

Rio's Grande Dame

What a place! Hotel Gloria is the oldest hotel in Rio, and it's creaking at the seams with old time atmosphere. That said, make sure you book a room in the main building as the newer annex has little to recommend it. In the main building you'll find high ceilings, antique dark wood doors, original 1920s furnishings and long, winding, dimly-lit corridors. The hotel is set in lovely tropical gardens and has two pools - one of which is absolutely enormous, and the gym is very well equipped - it also has a great view over the bay to focus your mind while you run off all that Brazilian stodge. Front-facing rooms are, unsurprisingly, the most expensive but they have an amazing view over Guanabara Bay. I was surprised to look out of one of the back windows and see I was looking almost directly into the living room of a house across the courtyard! [more ]

Rio de Janeiro - staying in Hotel Gloria

Hotel Gloria is a very charming place to stay in Rio de Janeiro’s Flamengo area – with rooms and verandas that give you excellent views to the beautiful Guanabara Bay.

I was there for two space related conferences and the location close to Rio de Janeiro’s Santos Dumont domestic airport also helps.

The main swimming pool of the hotel is really nice with its tropical ambience. The main lobby and most of the corridors and common areas have many classic elements of décor – and breakfast was always a banquet!

I stayed always in the new attached building where rooms are cheaper and with nothing in particular to register. All considered the price is fantastic for such a luxury hotel in the centre of Rio de Janeiro. [more ]
