This hotel is near the Lapa bar and restaurante area and is close to the theatre district.
The only problem is it is just on the verge of a bit of rougher area with lots of alcoholics and has a bit of an unsafe feel at night. It is however just a block into the not so great area and if you are on a budget worth a look. Rooms are musty but have air conditioning and modern televisions that work great. After one night I went looking for another hotel and found there was some great hotels in the theatre district but about $50 more, look for Hotel Atlantic Business or Windsor Astoria. I went for the Formule 1 nearby which is a 10 minute walk and in a better area.
Rio is a city where the poor mix freely with the tourists so you do need to watch wallets and purses, the less you bring when out the better.
