This hotel is located right on the border of Copacabana and Ipanema, so the location is pretty good. I did not feel unsafe at all (but tried not to walk around after dark too much, especially if no one was around). In general the hotel was clean and relativley nice for the price, although the shower could have been a little nicer. We had a "delux" room, which had no view, but was a good size for two people. My biggest complaint about this place was the staff, as they were not very friendly at all. In addition, whenever we asked for advice on where to go or eat, they would only recommend places they would get a cut from. They recommended the Plataforma dinner and tour. I highly recommend you DO NOT take this. The resturaunt was really bad, worse than even the crappiest churascuria I've been to in the states (and the tour was expensive). The show was just OK, but bad for the price. I would recommend just researching and finding better resturaunts and shows to go to on your own. Don't rely on this hotel for advice. The view from the top was the best part of the hotel. They charge $4R a day for the safe, which isnt that bad.
As for Rio, Ipanema and leblon are defeniltey nicer beaches compared to copa, but copa has cheaper drinks and stuff for sale on the beach. Christ the redemer and sugar loaf shouldnt be missed, but beware at sugar loaf, they wont take credit card unless you have ID on you!
