Fodor's Expert Review Yoo2

Praia de Botafogo 242, Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, 22250-040, Brazil

With a prime location overlooking Botafogo beach and Sugarloaf Mountain, this well-run hotel has become a favorite since opening in 2016. While the trendy design, funky colors, and a street-art-lined elevator give it a youthful edge, the reliable service, rooftop pool, excellent restaurant, and proximity to downtown have cemented it as a favorite for travelers looking for a location close to the financial heart of town yet still within reach of Rio’s spectacular sites.
