Festival do Rio and the RioMarket are based and headquartered in Botafogo in 2018. Botafogo is an important crossroads that sifts and separates the traffic coming into Centro from Copacabana and the Lagoa. A number of palatial office blocks give the area a more business like flavour than neighbouring Flamengo, a flavour that is enhanced by a number of stores, hotels and cinemas.

Botafogo is more than just the beachfront, with its magnificent view across to Sugar Loaf, and stretches back to form the link between the bay and the Lagoa. This part of Botafogo retains its residential air, once being the site of the magnificent mansions that housed the foreign Embassies, many of which, including the former British Embassy, now the Mayor’s Palace, still stand today. One of these mansions, Casa Firjan, is home to the RioMarket as well as other festival activities.

Guests of the festival will be based at Accor’s new Novotel Praia do Botafogo and the neighbouring Ibis Budget Praia do Botafogo. Both hotels are a short walk from Casa Firjan, as well as two of the main festival screening locations, Estação NET Botafogo and Estação NET Rio. The Botafogo Metro station is also close by with trains going direct to Cinelandia and the Centro Cultural LSR – Odeon NET/CLARO. 

The hotels are also less than 100 metres from the Botafogo Praia Shopping, a modern shopping centre with a good selection of stores, snackbars and restaurants.
