The Vila Galé Rio de Janeiro hotel, which opened in December 2014, is set in the historic center of the so-called “wonderful city”, in the famous Bairro da Lapa quarter, with its bohemian ambiance and being the stop for the carioca artists and musicians.
With 292 accommodation units, this hotel in Rio de Janeiro is divided into two wings: the Collection Wing, a building resulting from the restoration of an old 19th century palace, which houses the suites that preserve the palatial charm; and the Lapa Towers Wing, an 13-storey tower that houses the accommodation units with a more modern style.
With a decor inspired by Samba, Bossa Nova and the Portuguese-Brazilian culture, the Vila Galé Rio de Janeiro has a “Versátil” restaurant, with a cuisine inspired by national and international dishes, besides offering the “Massa Fina” menu every Saturday night. It also features two bars - one in the pool and a more emblematic one, featuring vintage decorative pieces, dedicated to Vinicius de Moraes, in a tribute to the Brazilian singer. In this hotel in Rio de Janeiro, make sure you also enjoy the outdoor pool, which invites you to relax while sipping a refreshing drink, or the Satsanga spa, which features a gym, massage room and hydromassage.
