Copacabana, Ipanema Hotels

As you head South from Rio's city centre into 'Zona Sul' you will find lots of accommodation options, ranging from upmarket luxury hotels to more affordable hostels and self catering apartments. The Copacabana and Ipanema beach areas are hugely popular for those seeking accommodation outside of the bustling city center but who still want to be able to travel to it easily. The Copacabana area is serviced by the city's metro system whereas buses have to be relied upon by those staying in Ipanema. Copacabana hostels are plentiful but if you plan to visit around Christmas time or Carnival be sure to book well in advance, as the budget options tend to fill up even quicker than the beachfront hotels. Many are booked out by October or early November.

For a bed in a shared dorm in a Copacabana hostel you're looking at between $11-20 a night, and for a private room somewhere between $26-46 dollars a night. Ipanema hostels are slightly more expensive since the further away from the city you get the farther you are from the tourist traps, hustlers and busier beaches. A continental breakfast is generally included in the rates.

Hotel prices range from between $180-200 a night for a 2-star to around $350-470 for a room in one of the 4-star beachfront hotels, many of which have they're own private security on the beach and a separate entrance and elevator for beach goers. However you may find that in some you are paying for the ocean view rather than the service or facilities. Also, don't forget to take into account additional taxes that are not always included in the room price - service, city and tourist taxes can add up to 18% onto your bill.

Copacabana's Avenida Atlántica and Avenida Princesa Isabel and Ipanema's Avenida Vieira Souto host many of the upmarket hotels suited to those with a bigger budget. Hostels and more affordable hostels can be found farther back from the beach. Some self catering apartments charge $25 a day for a small studio or between $500-600 per month for a larger apartment. If you're more interested in dining out, shopping or just want to get away from the busier tourist beaches than best head for Leblon or for the more eclectic nightlife in Ipanema. Hostels, hotels or apartments, whatever your budget, there is something to suit all travelers to the Copacabana, Ipanema district.
