Porto Alegre is a large city in Brazil’s Rio Grande province that combines colonial era architecture with postmodern industry. Porto Alegre isn’t well known among tourists, although a growing appreciation of the city’s unique appeal is starting to draw more people from around the world to visit.
Hotels in Porto Alegre are littered around the Centro Historico and Moinhos De Vento neighborhoods, as well as elsewhere. These two downtown districts have the most hotels, though there is the odd hotel elsewhere if you’re not picky. The farther out hotels aren’t necessarily less expensive, so be sure to check with us at Skyscanner so that you get the best deal.
Your expectations for your hotel in Porto Alegre should be flexible. The amount of money you’re willing to spend on a hotel will directly correlate with the quality of the hotel room and also the amenities that will come with it.
If you’re interested in a traditional Western Hotel, staying in one of the large chain hotels might be a good choice. If you’re more interested in a local experience, checking in at one of the many boutique hotels might be a bit pricey for what you get, but an unforgettable cultural experience.
As of 2017, the hotels in Porto Alegre are on the cheap side, ranging from $45 to $250 per night. Many of the smaller hotels try to compete with the larger hotels on price, so hunting for a bargain can often pay off. It shouldn’t be a surprise that the large chain hotels tend to be more expensive.
Porto Alegre is growing its reputation for having a vibrant nightlife. Among the clubs and bars of SoHo, tourists and locals alike participate in the live music and dancing shows that go on every night.
Outside of the nightlife, Porto Alegre’s many art museums and history museums are beautiful and well-kept chronicles of the city’s long cultural history.
Most visitors will readily recognize that Porto Alegre comes alive the most during the Carnival celebration when the entire city becomes a stage for performance art. While visiting during Carnival might be a bit much for some tourists, it’s the best time of year to chow down in a Brazilian steak house or check out the city’s streets.
That's my home town. Big city. Traffic. Lots of malls and some nice places to eat. Not very much of a touristic spot thought.
Despite all of its problems, this is still a beautiful city. It helps to know some of the locals, as I did when I was traveling there.
Great place to live, great place to travel to. Be sure to try the Redenção square and Lagom Brew Pub.
My hometown. Despite its many problems like chaotic traffic, lack of good public transportation and unsafe areas, is a beautiful city, I like it :)
