Yes, you do get the "favellas" close to more affluent areas and that makes the city a bit intimidating for visitors, especally if you are from Europe and not used to that. There are areas away from the beaches that are good. The location of the city is probably it's greatest asset and is almost certainly the finest in the world - Rio is well worth visiting and there is a lot of infrastructure improvements going on in preparation for the Olympics and World Cup so that's really good news for the city.
