I was EXTREMELY nervous visiting Rio de Janeiro as I heard so much negative press about it, but the copacabana/ipanema/leblon area really is quite safe and as with any city you don't flash any cash or valuables and be alert to your surroundings. I was relieved to find the hotel was in a great location just off the copacabana, near lots of great restaurants and backing on to another street that has all the main shops as well as the public buses that take people to Christ the Redeemer and Sugarloaf (trust me - take the public buses - they're a fraction of the price of the official tours and there's nothing different with the tours - in fact they share the same bus stops so you're only paying for the hotel pickup!)
The staff here were friendly, the breakfast good and the rooms clean. There were only two issues - one minor one in that there was no wi-fi in the room and only in the lobby/breakfast area. The lobby is pretty small so no chance of hanging round there whiling away an hour if you wanted to kill time! The second issue was that we saw bugs in our room a few times - when i first notified reception they sent a cleaner up IMMEDIATELY and sorted it but when i saw them a second time, i asked if we could move rooms and they obliged with no questions asked. I wouldn't let this put anyone off booking a room here as the new room was perfectly fine and it could have simply been that our first room was on the first floor and appeared to be located over the kitchen area, with our window overlooking where the rubbish would be stored. So in short, DO book this place...but ask for a room on one of the upper floors!
