Fodor's Expert Review Johnscher

Rua Barão do Rio Branco 354, Curitiba, Paraná, johnscher.com.br, Brazil

This small, hip hotel in Curitiba’s historic center dates back to 1917 and features a curious mix of original features and bold design. The large, high-ceilinged rooms have tall, shuttered windows, wood floors, and sparse furnishings, albeit with all the standard modern conveniences. Breakfast is served in a glass-covered, tiled courtyard, and there’s also a buzzy Mediterranean restaurant, ZeaMais ($$$) right next door.

PROS

  • interesting, historic building
  • large rooms
  • city center location

CONS
