Where to stay in Curitiba:


There is a large concentration of hotels between old downtown and the surroundings of Rodoferroviária Station. In this place it is possible to find cheap hotels, but remember that like all historic center, this is not a great area for those who like walking on the streets at night or even those who like to walk to bars and restaurants. The newest and pleasant hotel zone is in the Batel area, where you will be close to the most sophisticated shops and the busier nightlife of the city. This is possibly a safer area as this it is an upscale neighborhood where security on the streets is relatively strengthened. Another option is to stay in the downtown area that almost borders on the Batel neighborhood, this way it is possible to enjoy the best of both neighborhoods and do most things on foot.

Basically, the traffic of Curitiba is structured in an integrated fashion, with bus mass transportation through so-called trinários: exclusive express buses channels systems flanked by single lanes for private vehicles that runs in the opposite direction, and immediately parallel to these there are highways with higher speed limit. Namely, transit around the city by bus is easy and affordable. In addition, there is a special bus line that takes passengers to all the sights of the city, making it easier to access them, as they have signs and information on times and values.
