We stayed here during the World Cup and we had previously heard it wasn't safe in this area. The walk from the train to the hotel was interesting, as our clothing gave away the fact that we were tourists. The locals were nice, and guided us in the right direction. The staff were great, most spoke English and were very...

I stayed here during the World Cup as it was a reasonably priced hotel. First thing to note is this is located in the centro area of Rio. Not the best place to be walking around on your own at night time, but not as bad as people suggest. Most tourists stay in ipanema/copacabana area. A taxi to this area...

With warped passages, ruddy carpets, faded paint and the lack of safety equipment, Hotel Galicia in Rio Centro is sure to give you a unique experience. Noisy pluming and the hallways that have never seen the light of day give a prominent "bad horror film" feel to this establishment. The location of Hotel Galicia, being in a particularly dingy part...

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro
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.
