One of the first things everyone is worried when planning a trip is where is the best place to stay. While some people are looking for good deals and fair prices, others are looking for better location and confort. Usually my rating begins on neighborhoods location and how the room looks like, and to me cleaning is always an extra concern. But this last one is hard to measure until you get in your destination, right?! So, pictures and travellers reviews are our best friends in this moment.
I recommend you two ways to find your accommodation:
- Airbnb.com – Sometimes I dream of a place that I want to visit and I spend some very delightful hours “dating” with some apartments and rooms I see in the Airbnb website. Do you know they send professional photographers for free to take those pictures? And I think this makes all the difference… First, because they do a previous selection of the place and after because you see what you see, because they don’t want to mislead their consumers. In Rio, you can find many great offers if you want to stay in a local lodging and not in a hotel. The prices may vary from R$150 to R$550/day (in main locations such as Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon). Find your Airbnb accommodation here!
- Booking.com – you can book a hotel for a better price than going directly to a hotel website, you can check the reviews and has the support of Booking.com if the hotel not comply, for some reason, with your purchase. Find your hotel here!
