Stayed at the Copacabana Rio Hotel between Aug 13-20 2013. This hotel was much better than I expected, the location is awesome: just one block from the famous Copacabana beach, and a close walk to all shops, Ipanema and Arpoador. Tons of shopping further up Av. Ns Senhora de Copacabana (hotel street) and a safe area. Don't be fooled by urban legends, Rio is a different city now than it was 10 years ago. Hotel is right next to police station and tourist areas and heavily patrolled. Favelas have been pacified..just be aware of your surroundings and don't act like a stereotypical "loud" tourist. Great luncheonette (brazilian juice/snack bars) all along the street, Eclipse restaurant one block to the right is open 24 hours a day and have great açaí! Also if you train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Checkmat academy run by Ricardinho Vieira is right around the corner on Rua Ricardo Sá. Affordable price for the area, hotel staff was very helpful, rooms very clean and comfortable, nice shower and included in price is buffet breakfast and in room/lobby wifi. Try finding that in other hotels in Rio...everything is a la carte. Recommend this hotel to everyone I know
