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.

However, it was also a tactical rest, as the journey to our next destination, Belize, involved an overnight stay at Rio airport, three flights, four countries, a taxi and a water ...
... we got exhausted then ate some gross beach shrimp. It took us wandering around for a bit before we found the metro stop then we took the subway a few miles to Copacabana beach to find the Brazilian BBQ place that our friends had freaked out about the day before. IT WAS SO AMAZING. We had to do a few laps around the block before we were sure we had the right place but oh my goodness gracious. We went in and you start with the salad and sushi buffet.
