The star rating system works for some reference. Two-star properties we sugggest offer rooms with air-conditioning, a private bathroom, and in most cases breakfast is included. We were fussy about location.
You will not be disappointed. There are options near Barra da Tijuca, Ipanema and Copacabana beaches. The historical strip from Flamengo to Centro also offers great values, and you can use the subway to move around. Hotels are displayed by area, from Barra da Tijuca to Centro. Choose your personal favorites, and enjoy your stay!
