Located in Curitiba's modern Centro Civico district, Bristol Centro Civico offers the benefits of a full-service hotel at an affordable price. You'll be steps away from sleek new office buildings, while the city's picturesque "Old Town" is 1.5 miles (2.4 kilometers) southwest. Museu Oscar Niemeyer, an architectural masterpiece, is less than a 5-minute walk from the hotel. Set against the verdant Pope John Paul II Woods, the museum occupies 2 Niemeyer-designed buildings, a sprawling construction dating back to 1967, and the Annex, built in 2002 and nicknamed "the Eye" for its distinctive shape. The Linha Turismo bus line, designed for tourist use, stops at this museum and about 20 other major attractions, such as the Botanical Garden and the Wire Opera House. In fact, Curitiba's progressive and efficient public-transit system is a model for urban planners worldwide.
The city is also known for its many shopping centers; one of the best, Shopping Mueller, is just 0.9 miles (1.5 kilometers) from the hotel. You'll also find plenty of stores, as well as restaurants and gorgeous floral displays, along Rua das Flores (Flower Street). The first pedestrian-only street in eco-friendly Curita, Rua das Flores is 2 miles (3.2 kilometers) away.
The Centro Civico neighborhood boasts an abundance of restaurants, including one right at the hotel, the Carolina Restaurant. Here, you can enjoy the popular breakfast buffet along with lunch and dinner. Prefer to dine in the comfort of your room? Just call room service, available for your convenience 24 hours a day.
