Hotels in Rio de Janeiro provide sensational accommodations in a locale nicknamed “Marvelous City”. Known for its natural surroundings, samba and bossa nova music, gorgeous crescent beaches, cheerful atmosphere, football and Carnival, Rio de Janeiro is one of Brazil’s most popular tourist destinations. Arguably the world’s best people-watching occurs at well-known beaches such as Copacabana and Ipanema. One of Brazil’s most successful and popular football teams is Flamengo, which plays its games at Maracanã Stadium along with Fluminese FC. Occurring each year before Lent, Rio’s Carnival is considered the world’s biggest carnival. Two million people per day line the Marvelous City’s streets to celebrate Carnival, which traces its roots to 1723. Hotels in Rio de Janeiro indeed are some of the best in South America. When in Rio, you should avoid favelas (slums) at all times and the beach at night. It is best to explore natural areas and places near hotels and daytime beaches. Also keep in mind that Portuguese is the national language and that the currency is the Brazilian real. Before we get you to hotels in Rio de Janeiro, let’s take a look at some background information on the area to help you along the way.
Prior to the Colonial period, the Rio region was inhabited by the Tupi, Puri, Botocudo and Maxakalí peoples. On January 1, 1502, Gaspar de Lemos became the first European to encounter Guanabara Bay. In 1555, Villegagnon Island was occupied by 500 French colonists. On January 20, 1567, the Portuguese expelled the French from Brazil. The city of Rio de Janeiro proper was founded by Portuguese soldier and officer Estácio de Sá on behalf of the Portuguese crown on March 1, 1565. The discovery of gold and diamonds in Minas Gerais during the late 17th century attracted wealth. In 1808, the Portuguese royal family and Lisbon nobles fled Napoleon’s invasion of Portugal, setting in Rio de Janeiro.
With a population of almost 6.8 million people, Rio de Janeiro, also known as Rio, is the second-most populated municipality in Brazil. Located on South America’s eastern coast, Brazil is unique in that it is the only Portuguese-speaking country in the Americas. Oil, mining and telecommunications are some of Rio’s biggest industries. Travelers enjoy the city’s natural settings. Additionally, Carnival occurs just before Ash Wednesday. Copacabana and Ipanema are both located in the city’s South Zone. Notable attractions include Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf Mountain, Rio Downtown, Corcovado, Museum of Tomorrow, Fort Copacabana, Museum of Modern Art, National Museum of Fine Arts, Theatro Municipal and City of Arts. Summer in Rio occurs between January and March, when temperatures average 79 degrees Fahrenheit. Winter, which lasts between June and September, is quite pleasant, with temperatures averaging around 65 degrees. Popular foods include picanha (round beef), pastel de queijo (cheese pastries), feijoada (stew), chicken coxinha (deep-fried croquette), pão de queijo (cheese bread), moqueca (seafood stew), bolinho de bacalhau (codfish cakes), kibe (fried kibbeh), cassava chips, bacalhau (salt cod bites) and brigadieros da escocia (chocolate truffles). Brazil’s national drink is the Caipirinha (kai-purr-REEN-yah), which is made with cachaça (a rum-like liquor), sugar and lime. Other popular beverages are beer, wine, açai drinks, fruit juices, iced tea, lemonade and sugarcane juice. Now that we have some background information on the area, it’s time for hotels in Rio de Janeiro that will help make for a memorable trip.

This site is great! The hubby and I are looking to move overseas and I have always been in love with Brazil. These penthouses look great. Do you know what is the average cost of living for Brazil? I wonder how difficult it would be to get acclimated to living in a country when I don’t speak the language. Are these penthouses currently on the market?
Thank you for the comments Scole! Booking prices depend a lot on demand, availability, nearness to travel, etc. but generally range from a couple hundred to a thousand per night. Booking in advance is always a plus. These penthouses should all be on the market, yes.
What a lovely overview of these penthouses in Brazil! I loved how you also included main atractions around it as well as what to expect. I would love to visit Brazil one day! These are great options to consider on a future trip. I feel like they can be expensive, however. What do these penthouses typically go for? Thanks for sharing!
Hi Sherry and thank you! Pricing depends on several factors including demand, availability, etc. but generally go for a couple hundred to a thousand per night. Penthouses often have multiple bedrooms, so traveling in a group and splitting the cost is definitely the way to go.
What a nice compilation of paint house. I just feel like going on a vacation right away and lodging in this penthouses in Brazil. The Coral penthouse is a lovely house to lodge in and the Ipanema duplex penthouse is a very beautiful duplex to lodge with family. In short, all the collection are wonderful. I can’t wait to visit this nice places of nature and excitement. Thanks for the collection.
Hi Pat, thank you! You mentioned some very solid choices. Wish you all the best in your travels 🙂
Rio de Janeiro, the home of Brazilian soccer. This is a lovely overview of top notch pent houses available at Rio. Seriously, they look excellent and worthy of being lodged in when one visits Brazil. Though I have passed my time for vacation for now but Rio is a beautiful city that should be worthy to explore with great sites. I like the R. Vinícius de Moraes, 110 very well, its very cool.
Thank you RoDarrick! Glad to hear that you have picked out some favorites in R. Vinicius de Moraes and 110. Rio truly is a beautiful city. Happy travels out there 🙂
Thank you for sharing this. Brasil is popular but relatively cheap destination. I actually plan on moving on down there so I’m exploring my options. I don’t plan on buying a penthouse yet but I can afford more then comfortable apartments. So, I really appreciate your work and I will bookmark your website for future content.
Thank you very much Strahinja. Best luck with your move to Brazil.
Wow! I have never been to Rio! It looks beautiful. Some friends of mine visited during the big festival they host there. Do you know if the rates fixed or likely to change? If they are going to change, what is the cheapest time of year to visit? Which would be the cheapest place to stay during the festival?
Hi Catherine and nice to see you again. Keep in mind that in the southern hemisphere the seasons are opposite, so probably July or August would be the best bet as far as cheapest rates. In keeping with that theme you can’t go wrong with Penthouse NS Copacabana, which will run you about $21 per night with four people.
I’ve always loved the idea of visiting Brazil and with my scheduled holiday drawing closer by the day, I can only think of a few other places I’d rather be. Rio in particular seems to be highly cultural, and that is something I appreciate. The Rua Gomes Carneiro Penthouse seems like a very good fit for myself and my family. I like the availability of WiFi and the sea views. But what I find more appealing is that the Copacabana beach is within walking distance. Thanks for sharing
Leo great choice in Rua Gomes Carneiro Penthouse. It is an added bonus to have Copacabana so close for sure
Interesting to see that Rio de Janeiro, Brazil has amazing hotels we can enjoy on our visit. I love it when traveling with groups considering the fact that it feels more secure plus economical. It’s truly lovely to see that WiFi is one of the features of these Hotel. I love cooking too, so the equipped kitchen is another advantage for me and my group and most of these hotels have easy links to amazing bars too.
Free WiFi and fully-equipped kitchens are some of the great features of these Rio de Janeiro hotels MrBiizy
Very pleasing view from the penthouse in Rio, it lives to the expectation of an iconic city. I would love to stay in such a beautiful vicinity, comparatively the prices are very much affordable and all the penthouses have superb with the facility. I have already bookmarked your website for my future trip.

Thanks for sharing this with me.
Stevie Rua Gomes Carneiro Penthouse is a great choice and Rio is one of the fittest places in the world, so you’ll be in good company!
Wow this is so much information on penthouses Brazil edition. I leant that most areas in Rio de Janeiro are perfectly safe for tourists during the day. Anyways personally I think Rio see Janeiro state is a very perfect location for tourism. Perhaps after this lockdown I would consider trying it out. I must confess this penthouses are beautiful. Anyways I will just save this article for reference purpose, it will serve as a guide for my journey. It’s filled with so much quality and useful content.
Hi Sheddy and welcome back! Rio is generally a safe place but you should take the same precautions that you would in any major city. Thank you for the comments and glad you found value in the information.
hello! I love your site, it’s pretty amazing. it’s a lovely overview of these penthouses in Brazil! I’ve also loved the way that you’ve included the main attractions in the air, it’s amazing.
Do you know if the rates are fixed or likely to change? If they are going to change, what is the cheapest time of year to visit the place? Which would be the cheapest place to stay during the festival?
thanks for sharing…..
Thank you Stephen! Generally the prices are pretty fixed, though summer or near Carnival time you may experience an increase due to highest demand. Keep in mind that summer is the opposite in the southern hemisphere.
Brazil and Rio de Janeiro has been on my bucket list for many years, and after seeing this great post, it has reinforced my desire to go to South America. My first choice would be to be close to Copacabana beach, but there are so many beautiful places here, that it would be hard to decide which one.
Brazil is certainly a cheaper destination that some other cities and I love the fact that you have included places to see and visit in the nearby vicinity of each penthouse.
