location and metro query!

hi,

i have found an apartment for 6 adults for 4 nights towards the end of the world cup next year in the following location:

Rua Sambaíba, Rio de Janeiro 22450-140

i believe it is in the leblon area but at the end .. away from ipanema ..

just needed feedback as to how the area is in terms of safety specially night time, food and entertainment options nearby and public transport.

friends have been recommending try to find a place in copacabana but i havent found anything within my budget there yet...

but didnt want this to go out of hand if it is a good option.

is there a metro station close by to go to the maracana?

coundnt find any on the map and read that the metro closest to ipanema was closed ..

thank you guys

It's in a good location, but not very close to the nearest metro station, which is in Ipanema (now open).

It's a very upscale location and you can walk a little and catch a subway connecting bus.

thank you kind experts for that information ..

i have assumed i am thus chosing a really nice, active and lively area to spend my time in rio towards the last 4 days of the world cup ..

just hope the commute to places and the main attractions and specially getting back late at nights is not a problem

thank you

Since taxis are relatively inexpensive, consider using them when returning late at night to your apartment.

Leblon is one of the safest neighborhoods in Rio, so it's doubtful you'll have any problems.
