NileGuide Expert tip:
Make sure you ask for a room in the original part of the hotel. The new wing is somewhat sterile.
The oldest hotel in Rio, Hotel Gloria may not quite measure up to Copacabana Palace in the glamour stakes, but it remains jam-packed with historic charm. With a glistening white façade and antique furnishings, the hotel is a great bet for anyone who wants to be close to Centro as well as the beaches (a handy Metro stop puts Copacabana beach within a few minutes' reach). The hotel also boasts gorgeous tropical gardens and two enormous outdoor swimming pools, and there are beautiful views out across Parque do Flamengo and Guanabara Bay.
