Dear friend

i suggest you Hotel Arpoador Inn that is on the beach between copacabana and ipanema on Arpador.

Clean safe and on the beach i use this one when i'm in rio.

Arpoador Inn is a good option very good location. There are also other options like the Mar Ipanema or Vermont hotel. Although if you're looking for budget hotels, you will find more options in Copacabana. Buenos Aires is an expensive city, you will find better options among residences. I know the Suipacha suites is in a good location and has reasonable rates. As for things to do and visit there are several things I could reccomend. If you'd like take a look at where you'll find descriptions of different places to visit in Rio. Buenos Aires looks like an European city, you'll see all kinds of restaurants, interesting architecture and you have to attend at least one tango night show.

hiya, me and my boyfriend left rio a little while ago but stayed in robbys house just off of flamengo beach! if you are only going to be in rio for a few days i would recomend him as he gives cheap and brilliant tours of the city, including jesus sugarcreek and the local streets. we ended up doing a lot more with him and ended up being the only gringos in most places we went with him! his hostle is on a link via this site ROBBYS HOUSE (501 Larenjeous street) and tell him laura and dom sent you and you might get a few discounts! hope that helps!

I was in buenos aires a few days ago and stayed in a beautiful new hotel, cntrally located and in a very safe area. The rates were pretty reasonable too. It's the Esplendor, here´s a link to where I got the info: (

You can't miss a tango class plus show and dancing (it is fun to try it our rather than just watching)
