If you're staying a while in Rio, it makes sense to rent a small apartment. There are lots of agencies you can visit to sort this out for you. Ranging from budget to luxury with amazing views and hot tubs.
Shop around for a decent deal.

PRAIA IPANEMA HOTEL: Beautiful view
Go in February and than go back in July. Rio is fun always, just pick a hotel that is close to the beach or ON the beach (in Brasil beaches are public, so you will have a avenue to cross). Hotels are expensive and old. I usually choose one with a good terrace: the views are the best thing you will ever see in a city near the ocean. My recent picks: Arena Hotel (is new...) and Praia Ipanema Hotel. Enjoy!
Great views from the pool on the terrace.

Othon Palace: Othon Palace Hotel
Towering above the many hotels and apartment complexes that line Avenida Atlantica, Rio Othon Palace has terrific views over the beach and out to sea. A chain hotel, the décor is a little past its prime, but the rooftop pool and bar offer some of the best views to be found anywhere along the beach front.

Atlantis Copacabana: Location, Price and Service Rio Winner
This hotel was budget priced but had a great location, good service, hearty breakfast and help with tours.
We enjoyed the hotel, especially the service from Pedro, Eledir, Sebastian and Gilza. Quiet neighborhood with a fun local cafe on the corner. The location was 2 blocks from the beach.

Hotel Ferreira Viana.: Nice budget hotel in Catete.
Hotel Ferreira Viana is a typical little budget hotel in Catete which is near the center of town and close to Flamengo beach.It´s a little no thrills hotel in a quiet street where you can get a basic room for little money and still being in a safe location where you can walk home at night.
They have both rooms with en suite bathroom and without and there is of course a small price difference between them.
All in all it´s an ok choice if you just need a place to kip for the night but do not want to spend much, but like being in a safe location.

gringomanagement.com: where to stay in rio de janeiro
ipanema's going to be costly and you could stay in copacabana and walk to ipanema. hotel debret has some of the best rates for it's quality and location. i have been happy staying there. if you are staying long term, i have another suggestion. gringomanagement.com. the guy who runs the apts. is named david and he's really great to work with. i've stayed at his place a couple of times. i guess he has about 50 apts. he has some ocean front and some just 2 blocks from copacabana (which is the one i stayed in). it's around $80 per night and totally worth it, especially with another person.

Mango Hostel: Fantastic Option
Intially I was a bit nervous of Rio De Janeiro. I wont lie. Stories abound in the media describe it as one of the most dangerous cities on Earth so naturally I wanted to stay in a safe place during my time there. (By the way, I had no problems whatsoever in Rio). The Mango hostel has a great track record on hostel world and I can say its percentage/reputation is very well deserved. The staff are absolutely fantastic along with quiet rooms and a great back garden that serves cheap drinks and serves a solid breakfast. My four nights here were great and I highly highly recommend it to travellers. By far the best I have seen in Rio De Janeiro.
It is super safe, has a great vibe and when I arrived at 7am (check in was 12pm) they let me sleep in the TV room for five hours. The staff even closed the door over so that other travellers didnt wake me up while I slept. In addition, the tours they offer are superb and the staff is well informed on everything that takes place in Rio.

Casa Carioka Rio Hostel - Posada: Super friendly, safe and chilled place in Rio
Really loved my stay here. It had been recommended by a friend and I wasn't dissapointed. The place is clean, staff are friendly, there are security lockers and I had a super chilled stay there, without some of the stress associated with staying at some hostels booked through the net.

Penthouse Sugarloaf: Always rent an apartment
I will keep saying over and over that I always look for a great apartment before checking hotels. Now if I'm staying somewhere less than 3 days, then I choose a hotel. I was lucky enough to find this gem a few blocks from the beach. It was a 2 bedroom/2 bath/2 floor penthouse with it's only pool/terrace. The pool was tiny but still. Price included cleaning and utilities. It wasn't 5 star BUT was at $700 a week for 3 single gals, it was perfect. I would say it was 3+ to 4 stars.
If I recall the guy who takes care of the website is based out of Ibiza and his name is Freddie. He's a hoot.
Take note... You MUST pay with cash.
It's own pool.

apartments in copacabana: Gringo Management is the best!
We rented an apartment for ten days, and stayed one block from the beach. David, from Gringo Mgmt, is friendly and communicative. The price was fair and our apartment (large studio) was clean and had air, a double bed, bathroom, a fridge, an extra pull-out bed and a sink. We were able to relax and make it our home. We liked it so much, we stayed in a lot (especially because it was raining) and took photos of the street below.

Rented by local people: Private appartment
The most cheapest way. You're independant. You can do what you want and when. Private (double) bed- and bathroom, own kitchen, own livingroom and your own cable t.v. Completely furnished. Very safe as you have to pass the "quard" before entering and you're as free as a bird!
seeview ofcourse and right on the beach

Careful!: Temporary flats in Rio
Temporary flats offer much better value than hotels, and there are plenty available in Ipanema. After a bad experience over the Net, though, we've always arranged one locally, after spending the first night or two in a hotel. Be careful before paying any money in advance of your arrival.
Much more space for your cash, and liberty to cook your own meals etc
