Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born. With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living proof that the old and the new can live together harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where all major companies house their offices. However, the region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that used to serve as a residence for governors of Brazil, can be found here. Pedra do Sal, a Monday night street party, is also in this neighbourhood. This landmark is the birthplace of samba and is famous for its “roda de sambas” (“dance circles”). Stop in for one and get closer to discovering where Brazilian happiness comes from.

I stayed in this hotel for two nights, and the hotel was selected by the organisation that I visited. Upon arrival and check-in, I was given the key card to a room on the 5th floor. When I arrived there with my luggage, the door of the room was wide open, a ladder leaned against

The hotel had a rather old-fashioned vibe around it, like something from foregone times. All the "bellboys" are in their 70s, almost felt bad letting them carry my stuff, let those poor men retire! Location is good, right in Lapa, parking is a few blocks further and you have to

I think they have a smoking room as an option. Shuttle no but they can help call the taxi although I really struggle with communicating with the staff as they don't understand English but if you speak the local language then you should be ok. I used Uber while I was there. They tried to charge me when I brought one of my friend to stay in the room. However I argued that I have booked a double room although I was staying alone initially.

Olá...sobre a localização, dá para ir a pé no Consulado dos EUA e no Museu do Amanhã?
Se quiser ir a pé ao Consulado, pode até ser possivel, mas anda um pouquinho. O Arcos da Lapa fica próximo aos bares da Lapa, do arco etc. Para ir ao Museu do Amanhã é a.mesma coisa. Nesse último ponto recomendo usar o VLT e fazee um tour pela área restaurada.

"Higher floors, and inward facing"
"Try to get a higher floor, on the same side as the elevators."
"Try not to haave a rooms on the street side, especially lower floors."
"Ask the rooms on the left side."
