There are many options when it comes to the available accommodations for travelers visiting Rio de Janeiro. The choices range from hotels to motels to vacation resorts, bed and breakfasts, hostels and even apart-hotels. While all these options come with advantages, none of them come with the unique benefit of having your own apartment or flat for your entire stay. Apartment rentals offer the true “home away from home” experience. What’s more, you can select from the wide variety of types of apartments available in Rio — options that are especially many during Carnival, when many Cariocas choose to spend the Carnival holiday away from the massive influx of people and choose to rent their apartments. You will likely find an apartment for rent that is suitable for your needs, whether that’s a luxury penthouse on the beach or a budget apartment in Copacabana.

Advantages of Apartments

One of the biggest advantages to renting an apartment for your trip to Rio Carnival is the extra space. Rather than being confined to a small hotel room, you will have several rooms to move around, spread out and have more privacy. Renting an apartment will also allow you to bring friends over for a visit. You can save money with your own kitchen, should you choose to cook rather than eat out for every meal. Renting an apartment is the best way to experience the marvelous city and Rio Carnival as a Carioca, as many of Rio de Janeiro’s hostels are located in residential neighborhoods.
