Hotels in Olinda
«Hotels in Recife and Pernambuco
Being smaller, Olinda has fewer hotels than Recife. Notice that the list below brings more "pousadas" (inns) than hotels.
Most pousadas used to be big houses which were adapted to become hotels; most are operated by the owners, and services are more personalized.
Notice that Olinda has many hills, and some are steep. If you stay in hotels in the Historic city, be prepared to a lot of climbing (and enjoy some of the nicest views in Recife).
The beaches of Olinda are frequented mostly by locals. The bars along the beach, also with predominance of locals, are as animated as those in Recife.
Prices in Olinda tend to be higher than in Recife, for comparable standards (tighter restrictions apply to opening new establishments). During the carnival, prices fetch astronomic values; owners usually move out temporarily and rent their houses during the carnival days.
