About the Holiday

Feel the Rhythm of Rio in 2018

An awe-inspiring city where impossibly steep granite mountains rise from the ocean between glorious stretches of golden sand. Brash skyscrapers vie for space with impeccable colonial buildings, and lush forests tumble down hillsides into densely populated residential areas.
The hotel is located only two blocks away from the famous Copacabana Beach and its bars. Nightclubs and theatres are within walking distance. Most of the rooms are medium in size and in good condition, as are the bathrooms. The decor is plain and neutral. The restaurant serves a variety of dishes. This is a high-rise building typical of downtown. The lobby is medium in size and incorporates a couple of seating areas. This is a very good hotel, not only for its category but also for the services that the hotel can provide. It is suitable for all kinds of travellers who wish to enjoy Rio from its heart. Guests can benefit from the rooftop swimming pool.

Rio de Janeiro
Rio de Janeiro is the second major city of Brazil, behind only Săo Paulo. The city is capital of the state of Rio de Janeiro. It is famous for its spectacular natural setting, its Carnival celebrations, samba and other music, hotel-lined tourist beaches.

Guanabara Bay was reached by Portuguese explorers in an expedition led by Portuguese explorer Gaspar de Lemos on January 20, 1502; hence Rio de Janeiro, "January River". There is a legend that the mariners named the place thus because they thought the mouth of the bay was actually the mouth of a river, but no experienced sailor would make that mistake. At the time, river was the general word for any large body of water.

Rio has a Tropical climate. Though it can occasionally reach 40 °C in inland areas of the city, but in the main tourist areas (south zone, where the beaches are located), the temperature is moderated by the cool sea breezes from the ocean, even during the warmest months.

Rio de Janeiro is among the biggest cities in South America, but the city is more widely renowned for the various cultural celebrations that are held there every year. The most popular of these is the Carnival, held two weeks before the traditional Christian fasting of Lent. Apart from the Carnival, New Year is also a big deal in Rio and is also one of the other major festivals. It's celebrated with several concerts and firework displays all around Rio.

Almost every kind of international cuisine is available in Rio, but the local dishes here reach their culinary heights. The diva of Rio's dishes is feijoada, a black beans and pork dish that comes with rice, kale, and manioc. Churrasco is another favourite. Waiters slice off huge hunks of barbequed beef, pork, and other meats, serving them with manioc and onions. Being close to the sea of course means an unsurpassed selection of fine sea food.

Beer seems to be served at all hours of the day and locals can often be seen enjoying a drink with friends at the corner bars that open out onto the streets in all parts of the city. Many bars and pubs have happy hours for people returning from work or the beach and most serve snacks and light meals. But the real action does not really start until around 2300, when the clubs open their doors for music and dancing and stay open until around 0400.
