In recent years, Botafogo has become one of the hottest neighbourhoods in Rio. It hosts many modern restaurants with contemporary food and many venues to listen to rock and electronic music. Its numerous bars and pubs make this area a great choice for anyone interested in a great nightlife experience - in fact, some bars in the area are open all night. Casa Daros, an art museum that showcases amazing artists from Latin America, is a must see located in a historical building in Botafogo.
Unfortunately the museum itself was closed but they let you walk around the lovely gardens! There are wild monkeys in the trees here which is fun and there were some interesting plants and other flora to look at.
Spent the day on the beach DID NOT go swimming even though the locals do, nice sandy beach seemed safe enough just me and my mate. When the sun got too hot we toured the bars starting 1 end and finishing at the other, drinking ice cold local lager from a can, don't worry the cans came with a foil...
The view is great. One can have some idea of how this setting was in old times. However, too many issues not to consider. Firstly, pollution, and lack of minimal cleanliness on the pavement. And, most important, insecurity. It is hard not to be worried. Too many robberies and pickpockets to be brave enough to walk by in the evening....

What a nice surprise!
It left me wanting to come back for more.
Nice little place in Botafogo, serving very good food and deinks at reasonable prices, with a friendly an efficient service.
We went for the menu executivo for lunch. Good options, generous plates, but rather Brazilian options.
I would love to try dinner with the Peruvian dishes.
This is a wonderful hotel, we couldn't have been happier with our stay there. It has beautiful views, especially from the roof terrace, a nice pool, clean and well-designed rooms, excellent breakfast, friendly staff and it's in a great location.
The vast majority of hotels in Rio are on Copacabana or Ipanema / Leblon i.e. near the beaches. I wanted to see the city for five days rather than the sand, so based myself here. I was very pleased with my choice.
The hotel is in a safe and well-lit area only 50m from Botafogo metro station exit E. The...
Staff are excellent and they greet you with a friendly sincere smile.
Big thank you to Sandra from Reception and the rest of the reception team.
Antonia Cleaner did a fantastic job.
Hotel near Botafogo beach but you cannot swim there as the area is a parking lot for small boats and the water is not clean. Near to subway...
The staff is really helpful and super friendly especially the restaurant staff - Philipe, Andre, Jhonatan and everybody else went the extra mile to help us as we struggled with the language here. Andre at reception was also very helpful but he was there only for 3 days during our stay (8days).
But the lady at the reception - Talitha...
