Make no mistake about it - this is a love hotel, and some couples rent by the hour. However, for travelers this is a pretty good deal. Rio hotels are expensive, and this one is relatively well kept in a descent location. If for some reason you're not staying in Ipanema or Copacabana, this will provide a good base. It's...

First of all: Motels in Brazil literally means "sex hotels", where they charge for 4-hours period. Sheik still is one of these motels, but they offer rooms for travelers up to 2 people. Sheik has been my choice for stays in Rio, a city with very very expensive hotels. You can have normal full-day stays and the rates worth compared...

It rents rooms by 4 hour session, it's like a brothel. Mattress and pillows made of rubber, mirror on ceiling, sex pictures in common areas, porn on the tv, hookers coming and going through reception, really bad food, left after a few hours. Walls paper tin.

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro
Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born. With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living proof that the old and the new can live together harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where all major companies house their offices. However, the region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that used to serve as a residence for governors of Brazil, can be found here. Pedra do Sal, a Monday night street party, is also in this neighbourhood. This landmark is the birthplace of samba and is famous for its “roda de sambas” (“dance circles”). Stop in for one and get closer to discovering where Brazilian happiness comes from.
