Rio de Janeiro is one of the most expensive cities in the entire world. The reason why prices are so high in this location are well known: great beaches, incredible nightlife, perfect weather and more. With this article, we will try to briefly review some of the most expensive hotels in this location. We will start by presenting the Best Western Sol Ipanema, which is located at Av. Vieira Souto 320, Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro, 22420-000. The rooms here are very comfortable while the deluxe front rooms have panoramic beach views (although back rooms from the eighth floor up, which are the same size, have views of the lagoon and Corcovado).

Caesar Park is located at Av. Vieira Souto 460, Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro, 22420-000, right in the heart of Ipanema, very close to the high-class shops and the expensive gourmet restaurants. Business travelers, heads of states and celebrities, prefer this hotel as it offers impeccable services. The hotel has a business center that offers secretarial services along with fax machines. Other facilities you can find here include a pool with a stunning view on the top floor, delicious Italian restaurant, fully equipped bar and many more.

Copacabana Palace is located at Av. Atlântica 1702, Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro, 22021-001 and it was built back in the 1920s. It has a neoclassical facade and one of the city's largest and most attractive swimming pools. One of its two restaurants, the Cipriani, is rated among the city's best for its northern Italian cuisine. Everest Rio Hotel, located at Rua Prudente de Morais 1117, Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro, 22420-041 comes with one of the best rooftop views in all Rio. The back rooms have sea views but they lack any compelling décor. Business travelers visit this place quite often, as the services offered for them are quite various. The restaurant located on the top floor, close to the swimming pool has delicious seafood and some unique specialties from the southern part of Brazil.

Excelsior, located at Av. Atlântica 1800, Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro, 22021-001 is part of the Windsor chain and was built back in the 1950s. The expansive breakfast buffet is served in the hotel's window-banked restaurant facing the avenue and beach. If you are looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle, the rooftop bar/pool area is the place to go. Hotel Fasano, which you can find at Avenida Vieira Souto 80, Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro was designed by Philippe Starck and it combines glass and marble with period furnishings made out of tropical woods. This is truly a unique hotel in Rio because not only the exterior of the building is very nice but also the sleek interior design of the rooms cannot be found in any other hotels. The guests-only rooftop pool, with its unparalleled ocean views, is Fasano's masterpiece.

Our last reviewed hotel is Sofitel Rio Palace, which can be found at Av. Atlântica 4240, Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro, 22070-002 and was "face-lifted" in 2000. The building's "H" shape gives breathtaking views of the sea, the mountains, or both from the balconies of all the rooms. The famous Le Pré-Catalan is here and offers very tasty dinners.

All things considered, if you are willing to pay those big dollars, the variety of options is quite large so we are certain that you will find something that will suit your liking. We hope that you will have a great stay in Rio de Janeiro and have tons of fun.
