One of the Hotel Tulip Inn Rio Copacabana's greatest assets is its location - and not only because it's right on the beach. Because it is located in the "South Zone" of Rio de Janeiro, hotel guests have quick and easy access to the Marvelous City's main tourist attractions - some accessible by foot - as well as to main access roads to Santos Dumont and Galeão Airports and downtown Rio. Important streets surround the hotel, such as Nossa Senhora de Copacabana Avenue, an important commercial street with a variety of shops and restaurants available for guest enjoyment.
Learn more about some interesting tourist attractions near the hotel:
Copacabana Beach: Hotel Tulip Inn Rio Copacabana is located on the best stretch of Copacabana beach, across from Post 4, near Copacabana Palace. Along the shore, new round kiosks are a great option for a seaside drink, and a short walk to the right will bring you to Copacabana Fort, some of the most iconic locations in Rio de Janeiro.
Copacabana Fort: A pleasant walk from the Hotel Tulip Inn Rio Copacabana to the end of the beach brings the hotel guest to the Copacabana Fort, a military legacy full of history and stunning views. The fort features O Museu do Forte, the Fort Museum, with photographs and a military collection dating back to the beginning of the 20th century, as well as a branch of the classic Confeitaria Colombo, a candy shop. Here one can find the same traditional café menus and special dishes as in the city center, but with the advantage of the beautiful scenery along Copacabana and Leme’s shores.
Arpoador: A pleasant stroll or a quick taxi ride brings our guests from the hotel to Arpoador and Ipanema beach. This stretch of beach between Copacabana and Leblon is perfect for a walk, peppered with sporting equipment shops and lively bars. Arpoador is where you will find world famous views found on postcards, featuring the beaches of Ipanema and Leblon with the outlines of the Dois Irmãos hills in the background. This is where the most beautiful sunsets in Rio de Janeiro can be witnessed.
Other tourist attractions just a short taxi ride from the hotel:
Sugarloaf (Pão de Açúcar): A ride on the 100-year-old glass-walled cable car brings with it the most beautiful views of Rio de Janeiro, especially at sunset.
Urca: This idyllic neighborhood, both near and far from Rio de Janeiro’s Zona Sul (south part of the city) offers the ideal setting for outdoor activities and for having a good chat. On the narrow Vermelha Beach one can find trailheads along Urca mountain and animated bars featuring live music. To go the relaxed route, simply grab a taxi to the Mureta da Urca, the cobblestone walkway along the water, a traditional, end of the day carioca meeting place.
Corcovado: Chosen as one of the 7 Wonders of the Modern World in 2007, the Christ the Redeemer statue can be reached by taking the train in the neighborhood of Cosme Velho. This is one of Rio de Janeiro’s quintessential tours and is best appreciated during clear skies. An entire view of the city can be seen from the foot of the statue.
Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon: At almost 8 kilometers in length and the most versatile public place in Rio de Janeiro, the area around the lagoon is excellent for runners and bicyclists. Football fields, volleyball and tennis courts, baseball fields, skateboard courses and bicycle and skating paths share the park with picnic areas and kiosk bars frequented by night. The area around the lagoon is one of the best areas in the city to get a breath of fresh air and be active.
Leblon: Much more than a simple continuation of Ipanema beach, plenty of elegant restaurants, bars, exclusive boutiques and thriving nightlife are tucked away within the charming streets of Leblon. This neighborhood also features one of the city’s most chic shopping malls.
