  • Most tourists looking for Rio de Janeiro hotels will want to make their base in the city's dramatically beautiful Zona Sul (South Zone).

    It is in the Zona Sul that visitors will find most of the picture postcard images of Rio - the beaches of Ipanema, Copacabana and Leblon are all here, as is Sugar Loaf mountain, and it is in the Zona Sul that you will see Christ the Redeemer, standing with arms outstretched to embrace residents and tourists alike.

    The South Zone of Rio de Janeiro is home to Rio de Janeiro's monied elite, particularly the neighborhoods of Ipanema and Leblon, and it is here that visitors will find much of the city's most upmarket shopping, nightlife and dining options. Accommodation in Rio's South Zone does tend to be more expensive than elsewhere in the city, but there are still bargains to be had if you know where to look.

    Our number one pick, the hotel Praia Ipanema, is not the most chic or sophisticated hotel in Rio de Janeiro, but it does offer good value, family-friendly accommodation with a pool, gym, good breakfasts and, most importantly, a prime location right on the beachfront in Ipanema.

    Business travelers in Rio de Janeiro are also well catered for, and those with healthy expense accounts will find that Sofitel Rio, right in front of Copacabana beach, offers excellent conference facilities as well as a first-rate restaurant and excellent bar.

    Visitors willing to spend big bucks on luxurious stay in Rio will find that both Fasano Rio, in Ipanema, provide a suitable level of pampering, while budget travelers will find a good hostel scene in Ipanema, Copacabana and the largely residential neighborhood of Botafogo.
