Hotels in Centro, Rio de Janeiro may be a Metro ride from the beach, but you'll be within easy reach of the city's liveliest nightlife, as well as some fine colonial architecture, good museums and galleries, and the business heart of Rio.
Prices at hotels in Centro, Rio de Janeiro tend to compare very favourably with accommodation in tourist hotspots such as Copacabana and Ipanema, and accommodation ranges from good business hotels such as our number one pick, the Guanabara Palace Hotel, to some cheap and cheerful hostels.
The business district can be eerily quiet after dark and at weekends, but areas such as Lapa are busy every night of the week, and it is just a hop, skip and jump to Santa Teresa, the beautiful, bohemian neighborhood on a hill.
Close to Centro, the Hotel Gloria is the oldest hotel in Rio de Janeiro and, although currently closed for refurbishments, is a long-standing favourite among business travelers as well as families visiting Rio de Janeiro.
