We're located at the block of the beach, just 1/2-minute walk to the main door of the tube station. We're one metro stop from Copacabana and three from Ipanema - seven to the city centre. This is a very nice and safe area with real cariocas and not as many pickpockets looking for tourist as Copacabana is. We're located just in front of Botafogo Beach, almost next-door to the metro station, so we're really easy to find. We're just one block from Botafogo Shopping Mall in the main street of the neighborhood (the heart of Botafogo) and everybody knows us. From here it's just 4km to the domestic airport. At the end of the street you can see the Christ. It's 1.8km to Sugar Loaf. Leblon, The Lagoon, Gavea, Botanical Garden, Flamengo, downtown Rio and Santa Teresa are just there. Between two avenues you can find buses that go everywhere in the city.
