Rio de Janeiro

Arpoador Inn

177 Rua Francisco Otaviano
Rio de Janeiro, 22080-040, Brazil
TEL: 55-21-2523-0060

With six floors, this 1970s-era budget hotel has just palm trees and a cobbled, local-traffic road between it and Arpoador Beach. Within walking-distance of Ipanema Beach as well as Copacabana and Leblon, the 50 basic-feel rooms have a refrigerator, air-conditioning, and a safe. But the furnishings and style—simple wood, tile floors, and showers only in the compact bathrooms—fit the budget price for the location. On the ground floor there's a restaurant with a daily buffet-style breakfast. Later in the day, it serves seafood and Brazilian cuisine on its beach-side terrace.

Room to Book:

Spring for a deluxe room, which overlooks the beach and coconut trees, and request the top floor.

Insider Tip:

On Sundays, walk 10 minutes to General Osório Square to browse the so-called “Hippie Fair”—a market of handmade crafts and artwork.
