The Hotel Galicia is located in the center of the city of Rio de Janeiro, close to important commercial buildings of the city and close to several tourist attractions, as well as the bohemian neighborhood of Lapa, where are located the Arcos da Lapa, Staircase Selaron and several botecos, show houses and nightclubs.

Center of Rio de Janeiro

More and more revitalized, the center of the city of Rio de Janeiro counts on several options, not only business (here are located the main offeces of the city), of shopping (Polo Saara), but also for tourist visitation, where we highlight Largo of Carioca with the convent of Santo Antônio, the imperial palace, the municipal theater, the royal portuguese reading office, the national library, the cultura center of the bank of Brazil, as well the metropolitan Cathedral of São Sebastião and the church of Nossa senhora of Candelária.


The Hotel Galicia has free parking for its guests, but with its central location, we have several acesses to the city´s public transport, such as the VLT that left us even closer to the revitalized Mauá Square, Aqua Rio, etc.

Another option is the subway, which connects out hotel to the Zona Sul (Botafogo, Copacabana, Ipanema, Lebron, etc.) as well as Barra da Tijuca and Zona Norte.
