Decent hotel - good place to arrive in Rio

Decent, clean hotel with tasty breakfast and friendly staff. Nothing fancy but reasonable value for Rio, and on a busy road so felt safe. It's in Catete which is a good midpoint between the main areas in Rio also, so pretty easy to get most places, and a pleasant walk to sugar loaf.

I visited Rio a few years back when I went to Brazil for Mike and Anna's wedding, so thought I …

... most affluent area in Rio. In contrast, Santa Teresa, Lapa and the city centre felt more 'everyday' and, though beautiful areas, walking through them you begin to get an idea of the poverty in some parts of Rio, and the reported rise of crack usage in the city. The Selaron stairs, for example, seemed to be a major junkie hangout despite the large groups of tourists who flocked there to see the work of art.
