Rio de Janeiro World Cup Accommodation

One of Brazil’s oldest cities, Rio de Janeiro requires little by way of introduction; a seething mass of energy, the country’s former capital is teeming with life, from the top of Sugarloaf Mountain to the waves that lap against Copacabana. Wherever you may roam in this eclectic city, the statue of Christ the Redeemer will be visible, silently watching the endless flow of humanity below. Seven World Cup matches are scheduled to take place in Rio starting with Argentina v Bosnia-Herzegovina on 15th June. Spain face Chile three days later followed by Belgium v Russia on 22nd. The final group game sees Ecuador take on France on 25th June. Group C’s table topper will play the group D runner-up on 28th, then, moving into July, a quarter final tie is lined up for 4th, before the final itself is hosted here on 13th.

World Cup accommodation in Rio de Janeiro comprises a wealth of options, with properties scattered across this vast city. For those who desire five-star treatment, there’s the option of a holiday apartment on Copacabana Beach complete with large screen TV, 100 channels, wifi-connected laptop, Apple TV with Netflix and maid service. Humbler but no less cosy is a studio flat with air-con, comfy bedding and open-plan living area. Alternatively, you could just go all out and treat yourself to a 4,400 sq ft luxury house with 55” TV, B&W speakers and spectacular ocean view. One thing you’re certainly not short of in Rio is options.

It is a very unique designed duplex that allows you to have your own privacy from other friends since the rooms are seperated in different floors. The kitchen is well equipped and the apartment is tidy and clean. We had everything we needed, and a special thanks to the host who advised us prior to the journey on where to go, what to do and if we needed anything. Will come back to this property if I return to Rio, a special thanks to Didier
