Rio’s iconic Largo do Botícario will be developed as a JO&JOE hostel by Accor Hotels

The iconic architectural complex of “Largo do Botícario” in the Cosme Velho neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro is being redeveloped under AccorHotels’ JO&JOE hostel brand. AccorHotels bought the six houses that make up the architectural complex for R$20 million (4.6€m) and will invest an additional R$30 million (6.9€m) in renovations and furnishings.

The Rio property will feature 350 beds spread over 70 rooms and apartments and will be the hostel brand’s first opening outside of Europe.  JO&JOE Rio de Janeiro is scheduled to open in 2020.
