I recommend not to go to Rio. The state of Rio de Janeiro is the most insecure in Brazil, if you are in any other state in Brazil, yes, I recommend it. Hope this helps.
Me too, actually want to go there for Major.
Hows the prices there? Cheap?
if you want cheap but acceptable hotels, look for "ibis" is a franchise spread all over the country.
Its cheap, mostly use by people who is doing some work for few days in some city, and do not want to spend a lot of money in hotels.
edited: but only people who know the city can actually help u
Hotels are so 1990, go to hostels
Cheaper, u meet new people, in general they are good people, much better experience
I used to live in Rio 6 years ago, i was too young don't care too much about hotels obv so i have no idea. I just have one advise search for Hotels in SouthZone of Rio or even in WestZone; they are the safest. I think if the major really happen in Brazil they will use the Olympic Park in Rio that is locate in WestZone, you can go easy n fast to there from any zone, at the same time would save you time if you pick up an hotel in Barra da tijuca, Recreio, Copacabana, Ipanema or the south part of Jacarepagua; i don't know if there are really good hotel in these places i'm trying to help you to search. If you have money you can rent a appartment in these places when they have events normally people does it renting for weeks period or days, although its expensive
If they major going to the olympic park, the best hotel It will be the Ibis barra. But wait for the location in the city, cus Rio don't have a very good public transport system
there are a lot of good hotels there use trivago or airbnb to rent a place.
why would u stay in a hotel
sleep with me
im not gay
dont go brazil. dirty, smelly, crime, and camels all over
i live in rio and just like some people said above, the best places for you to stay for just a few days without spending a huge ammount of cash is the Ibis brand. they have a lot of places, specially close from the famous public areas as such events arenas, which means you won't need to spend a lot of money trying to reach to the major wherever it is
with one dollar you can have four reais. Very cheap
Man, Rio is small, i advise your stay in other city of province. Know that Rio is a city and province, the city is very dangerous.
