Very good, walking distances are great \o/

It's in Portuguese, but the data are mostly readable for anybody :-) I
would just add two requests here:

‣ Exchange rate between Reais and USDollar/Euro/... for better
  readability for non-Brazilians. As of right now, according to
  xe.com, it's 3.20BRL per 1USD, or 3.92BRL per 1EUR.

‣ Availability of rooms. How many rooms does each hotel/hostel have?
  That, together with their prices, distance to venue (or hotel
  quality, or whatever) can be a guide as to how we would try to fill
  them up.

Of course, I understand you are presenting "public" prices. I guess
that, if we are to approach (say) Hotel Nacional (as they are closest)
and tell we want to book it all, we might get preferential
