What is the best area in Rio de Janeiro to stay?
Hello, I’m going to Rio de Janeiro in July and I am looking for a hotel in a safe area. Most important is that it is nearby public transport and that it is clean. My buget is about US$60-US$80 per night.
What are good areas/ neighboorhoods to stay?
And does anybody have recomendations for a hotel?
Thanx in advance!
It doesn’t have to be near the beach, the financial district is good also. As long as it is reaonably safe.

I recomend RIO FLAT SERVICE in Leblon.
It’s cheap, you get your little kitchen the basics so you can save on meals, your get breakfast, a great view and pool.
2nd block from the beach, cinemas and nice restaurants around. Malls too.
2 blocks from Ipanema, but still in Leblon which is the best area in the city.
Away from Copacabana and it’s tourist traps.
Rio Flat is a tall building on top a small mall called “Rio Design Center”. The apartments for hotel rental (some people live there) and in the higher floors, above the 10th I think.
They also have parking if you need.
I think you can contact them thru www.protel.com.br
Protel administers several of these called “Flat Services” in Rio’s south zone.
