Dan Inn Curitiba offers comfortable, affordable accommodations in central Curitiba, directly across from Teatro Guaíra, the city's main performing-arts complex. Passeio Público, a large public park, is about a 2-minute walk north. Stroll the park's tree-lined promenade, rent a paddleboat at the lake, and visit the small zoo. About 0.6 miles (1 kilometer) from the hotel, you can indulge in a little retail therapy and see a 3-D movie at the chic Shopping Mueller mall.
A progressive, cosmopolitan city, Curitiba offers a rapid-bus system that's an international model for urban planners. "Linha Turismo," the tourist bus, stops at more than 20 attractions. During the 2.5-hour tour, you can get off the bus and visit 4 different sites. Favorites include Curitiba Botanical Garden, with its iron-and-glass greenhouse; the dramatically designed Museu Oscar Niemeyer, also known as "The Eye"; and beautiful Park Tanguá, built out of quarries.
There are plenty of dining options in the hotel's immediate area, but you might just want to relax after a busy day and enjoy dinner at the onsite restaurant Dan Inn, or opt for room service, available for your convenience 24 hours a day. Other conveniences include a business center, complimentary wireless (high-speed) Internet access, a small meeting room, tour/ticket assistance, and multilingual staff. Dry cleaning and laundry service is also available.
Once you've settled in to your air-conditioned guestroom, you can watch a late-night show on the LCD TV or check email via complimentary wireless Internet access. Rooms also offer compact refrigerators, desks, in-room safes, minibar, private bathroom, and hair dryer. All guestrooms are smoke-free.
