    Overall stay was more or less positive because of the location of the hotel.
    The Hotel is old and noisy, beds are terrible and prices are high.

    Very negative point is stealing staff of the hotel.
    They stole money from inside the locked room safe!!!

    Unique Quality: Location

Looking for a villa in Rio

by cdnagent

Hello fellow travellers,

I am looking for a villa in Rio for next April that would accommodate six adults and four children. If anyone has experience with that or can suggest a company who can provide some leads on this, I'd be very appreciative.

Kindly....Jim

Have you ben to Rio before, Jim? It's mostly highrise apartments, many fewer houses. If you wish, I can sugggest some rental agents that have apartments, and may have some leads on where to look for a house.

yeah i can too. but they're apts. not villas.
a simple google search for villas, rio de janeiro brings up some options you could look into.

Re: Looking for a villa in Rio

by bahiana77

If you Google, just be aware that the name of the state is also Rio de Janeiro, so a property advertised as a "villa in Rio de Janeiro" could put you 30 km or more outside the city itself, too far for comfortable touring, and especially far for enjoying the exciting nightlife.
Best luck.

I found these villas and they are right by where I stayed when I went a few weeks ago. Great neighborhood and right next to both beaches!

Re: Looking for a villa in Rio

How's your Portuguese?
It might say "villas", but first of all, I don't think anything with this address (Av. Ns. de Copacabana, 1066 An 12 Sl 1202), on the busiest street in Copacabana, all highrises, is anything other than a type of apartment building. And in fact the ad says:
"Categoria: Médicos e Consultórios
Tag's: DENTISTAS DENTISTAS MEDICINA E SAUDE"
So I suspect that the name of the dentist at that address might be "Lilia Villas Boas de Vasconcelos Alves".

Hello, i´ve been in Rio for the Pan-Ameican games and we rent a little apartment, in Ipanema, one of the best places to remain in Rio, two blocks from the beach. If you want the phone i can send to you.
Goodbye

Travel Tips for Rio de Janeiro

Know some portuguese before you go

by sakuyaini

Actually, know as much portuguese as you can before you go (specially if you are not going on arranged packages or tours - like me!). It will help a lot. As soon as you get to the airport, it will already help you to negotiate cab fares. I miss walking along the beach, lost in time, listening to brazilian music in my cd player, watching people, stopping to sip agua de coco (or ice cold skol!), the humid air, the sea breeze, people laying out in the sun ... everything about Brazil ... Que Saudades !

Exchanging money

by racheljapi

The currency used in Brazil is the Real (R$) and it is made up of one hundred centavos. Notes come in denominations of R$1, R$5, R$10, R$50 and R$100 and the coins in use are 1c, 5c, 10c, 25c, and 50c and R$1.

When changing cash or travellers cheques you will usually find the best exchange rates in a ‘Casa de Cambio’. The other option is to use any of the major banks but in the larger cities only the head offices offer an exchange facility. It is also worth noting that the foreign exchange departments often close at 1pm, although some do remain open until 2pm or 3pm. Certain branches will only change a minimum of US$100 while others impose a fee of $20 no matter how large or small the amount being changed. Therefore, it is worth looking around before exchanging any foreign cash. US dollars are the most convenient currency to change.

Credit cards and bank cards can be used at ATMs to withdraw cash, once they show the Cirrus symbol and credit card logos.

I personally used only my ATM card with the visa symbol. While I couldn't use it at every location, it worked well enough. (Before going to smaller cities, make sure you have enough cash to get around and a little cushion)

Liquor me Up, BAby!!

by wrldtravler

Start Drinking months in advance, so as to improve your capacity. Or else you'll be lying next to Tyler..
(might I add this is early afternoon) The alcohol is decently priced. There's a great supermarket on Ave. N.S. Copacabana a few blocks down towards Ipanema. The beers are mainly watery, but Antarctica is the best of the lot. I'd stick with Cachaca though. Vodka is readily available though some of the brands where quite alien to me.

Favelas

by blaird

As you visit Rio, you will undoubtedly see huge developments of poorly built houses, one on top of another in some pretty interesting locations. These are favelas or slums. Unfortunately, favelas are growing in Rio and they are filled with the poor that can be loosely categorized in one of two ways: struggling to survive on poor to no wages or working in illegal endevors. The first group is the vast majority within the favelas, I am told, but the second group has much of the power. Due to this, favelas can be extremely dangerous and I do not recommend wandering in.

I hear there are tours through favelas, but i have no desire to tour these streets, as you can see them from afar much more safely. Nearly every day I passed Cidade de Deus (famous from the movie) or Rio das Pedras. I am told Rio das Pedras is a "safe" favela, as they do not want drug dealers living or dealing in their walls. Cidade de Deus is another story.

You may also see Rocinha on you drives through Rio, this is the largest favela in the city, the sheer size is truly amazing...built up the side of a mountain and back down the other side.

Padaria

by racheljapi

Found on every two to three blocks, Padarias are an important part to every day life here in Rio. The bread is made fresh every few hours (or maybe even more) and can be purchased for 30 cents a piece. That is nothing and the bread is amazing. Listen when you come in, if the fresh bread isn't out already it might be on it's way.

Eat this bread alone or add meat and/or cheese. I enjoy it with Catupiry. It's a cheese spread. A must try!
