Rio de Janeiro, Ipanema And Copacabana Apartment Rentals Vs Hotels
When visiting Rio de Janeiro, including Ipanema and Copacabana, one of the best ways to fulfill your accommodation needs is to stay in an apartment or aparthotel rather than a hotel. There are many reasons why hotels are not best way to stay in Rio.
Guests: Almost all hotels do not allow guests in their facilities. This fact alone has been a big complaint among vacationers to Rio de Janeiro. If you stay in an apartment, you have the ability to live how you wish, come and go as you please and enjoy your apartment as a local would inviting whomever you wish to be a guest in you temporary home.
Costs: The hotels in Rio can be extremely expensive, especially for the amount of living space they offer. Apartments are much cheaper than almost all hotels and have the ability to comfortably accommodate more than 2 people. If your travel party is more such as 4, 6 or 8+, there are larger flats available. Something that hotels simply do not offer.
Privacy: Apartments offer a level of privacy and comfort that rio hotels simply cannot compete with. Guests can cook, do laundry, work and relax without annoying interference from other guests or hotel staff. Aparthotels are perfect for both short term or longer term travel allowing for more of a cozy home like atmosphere as opposed to impersonal and overcrowded hotels.
Safety: Rio de Janeiro apartments are in great neighborhoods such as Leblon, Ipanema, Arpoador, Copacabana and Leme with 24 Hour doormen, well lit entrances, intercom systems ensuring that no outsiders get into the buildings as well as camera surveillance systems. Although Hotels can be just as safe, apartment flats are equally up to par.
