My place is close to Lapa, Rua do Lavradio, Cinelândia, Catedral Metropolitana, and the busy Centro (Praça Mauá) all nightlife hangouts of Lapa and Centro, and its multiple public transportation options, getting you about everywhere in Rio for cheap. Good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers, recently refurbished and fully equipped (cooktop, microwave, digital TV, Internet etc.).
I have no doubt you will also LOVE the view!
