Hotel Unique

Two glasses of champagne sit next to guests in the swimming pool at the Skye Bar on the roof of Hotel Unique in São Paulo. A sprawling metropolitan area of nearly 20 million people, São Paulo is sometimes referred to as the New York of South America. While the comparison may be a bit overstated, Brazil's business capital boasts a rich cultural life and a bar and restaurant scene that rival the world's premier cities.

Mirante do Arvrao

Brazil will also see an influx of fans looking for rooms during the tournament. Prices for the few available hotel rooms have skyrocketed, driving some to seek out less-conventional options, such as the Mirante do Arvrao hotel in Rio, pictured here.

Other options

There are other options for those unable to afford a night at a luxury hotel. In Rio, many residents and foreigners are transforming regular homes into places to rent to intrepid tourists eager to find an authentic cultural experience, or who aren't able to afford the more expensive hotel beds.
