I live in an apartment Which is very well localized in the center (center) of Rio de Janeiro, although very quiet and little traffic noise. You just take a 5 minutes walk to the Metro / Subway station Urugaiana (where is Also a big and famous street market) and have several bus stops nearby. Easy to get taxis as well. 20 minutes by subway to go to the South Zone, Copacabana, Ipanema etc. Good transport connection to the main sightseeing spots. Lots of restaurants, bars, banks etc. nearby. I live in an area well located in the center of Rio de Janeiro, easy access, close to Uruguaiana Metro.
