The building is located two blocks away from Ipanema beach and on the corner of a square which has a pleasant "hippy fair" (a mix of arts and crafts, clothes, etc) on Sundays.
There are plenty of restaurants, supermarkets, pharmacies, shops, laundries/dry cleaners, internet cafés, etc. within easy walking distance, and sugar loaf mountain (pão de açucar) and Christ the Redeemer (Cristo Redentor) are easily accessible by bus or taxi. The metro/underground station Ipanema/Praça General Osório is a minute's walk away.
I live in São Paulo, but can be reached on my cel phone, land line or email, and the building superintendent lives in the building and is friendly and helpful (although his English is non-existent).
