Rio de Janeiro Hotels: 363 reviews and 359 photos
A good option for backpackers and budget tourists who want to live in a nice and quite are is Hotel Turistico. It has clean and simple rooms with shower, A/C, mini bar and TV. Some of the receptionists speak english and are very helpful.
The rates are R$ 70 (US$ 35) per double room but you can negociate lower prices during the low season or if you're staying for several nights. You can also try asking for a room without A/C, mini bar and TV (wish we had done that!). When paying, make sure you ask for a receipt (I am pretty sure the official bill was lower than the amount we agreed to pay). A descent breakfast is included in the price.
Price Comparison: least expensive
Directions: The Hotel is very close to the Gloria metro station and bus stations. There are several small Juice bars, grocery stores and restaurants nearby.
