Rio de Janeiro, with its thriving urban culture and natural scenery combined with a gay-friendly attitude, is one of the most popular gay destinations in the world. An LGBT beach in Ipanema, great gay clubs and a huge annual Gay Pride celebration that sprawls out along Copacabana Beach create an attractive vacation option for holiday-makers. Here are some of the most gay-friendly hotels in Rio de Janeiro.
Large, spacious rooms characterize the four-star Praia Ipanema Hotel, which boasts a seafront location. The bedrooms come with partial or full ocean views that overlook the wide expanse of the sea and stretch from Ipanema to Leblon. All of the 100 rooms have free wifi, a balcony to enjoy the sea breeze, and 24-hour room service. There are good public transport options nearby, including a subway station and several bus links that connect the hotel to the rest of the city. It’s also near several bars, restaurants, pubs, and shopping malls.
