My wife and I recently spent 4 nights at Casa Cool Beans Ipanema. This is the perfect place to stay at. There are only 7 rooms in the place and if you didn't know what you were looking for you would walk right by it. The beach is 1.5 blocks away and there are so many restaurants within the area. We never felt unsafe at all in our time in Rio. Every morning they give you a R$ 20 voucher to a restaurant/café right around the corner from the hotel. The voucher is good anytime of day so you can save it for lunch if you like.
We didn't have anything planned prior to arriving. Pedro and David said they would plan everything when we arrived. We arrived and told them what we wanted to do during our time there. They said tell us in the morning and we will make it happen. One morning we said we wanted to go Hang Gliding. 40 minutes later there was a guide at the hotel to pick us up and take us. The next morning we said we wanted to go on a Favela tour. An hour later a tour was in front to pick us up. Whatever you want to do, they will make happen. They were so so so helpful. Be prepared though, things tend to happen really quick!
We can't wait to go back and stay at Casa Cool Beans! The area below the hotel is very active and can get loud at night. Most of the noise was drown out by the air conditioner in the room. We knew about this going into our stay so it's not a complaint by any means. Just be prepared. The location and service of the staff outweighs the noise at night by a long ways.
See you again Casa Cool Beans!
