Centro

Hotels near Centro, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil .

While many members of the upper class have moved to the suburbs or to hot districts like Barra de Tijuca, the Centro of the city, also known as Central, is still a popular place for tourists to visit, as well as the city's bustling economic center. Most of the largest corporations in the entire country have at least one office here, the skyscrapers are some of the tallest and most modern on the whole continent, and during the workday, it's possible to see hordes of businessmen making their way around downtown, car horns honking, and many other signs that you're in one of the world's great cities.

Many important tourist spots can all be found in Rio's Centro district, including the Municipal Theatre, the Old Cathedral of Rio de Janeiro, and the Paco Imperial. A number of popular museums are also located in the neighborhood, among them the National Historic Museum and the National Museum of Fine Arts.

While the local elite may have moved on towards the beaches of Rio, the Centro still pulses with the beat of commerce, and its traditional hot spots draw tourists and travelers from all over the world with an interest in the city's history and getting to know its current day a little bit better. Many hotels are located in the Centro, including the Arcos Rio Palace Hotel, the Hotel Nice, and the Windsor Guanbara Hotel.
