Located in front of Botafogo beach, the Hotel Yoo2 is well-situated to offer spectacular views of the Sugarloaf and Corcovado Mountains.
Set on the north-eastern edge of Botafogo, the hotel is ideally placed to access one of the most vibrant and interesting districts in Rio. Sugarloaf Mountain and the gorgeous Flamengo park are on the doorstep and its only a 10-minute car ride to Copacabana beach and the laid-back neighbourhood of Leme.
This is the first hotel from London’s Yoo design studio and is heavily influenced by its multicultural and cosmopolitan surroundings. Local creativity is embraced with murals from local artists displayed throughout the hotel. Rooms are large and spacious and are decorated with locally sourced furniture and soft furnishings. The highlight of the rooms are the amazing views of Rio, which would compete for the title of the best views available in the city.
The rooftop plunge pool and roof terrace offer a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of the streets below and have a spectacular view of Sugarloaf Mountain and Guanabara Bay. For those wanting to explore, the hotel puts together activities ranging from local street art tours to bike tours. Cariocally Restaurant and Bar brings a contemporary twist to Brazilian dining. The menu uses locally sourced ingredients and seafood to create authentic flavours which change with the season.
