" 301 is the nicest place, that I have stayed in Brazil. The neighborhood is good, and I have paid more money for less. 301 has a large HD television, and two small televisions in each bedroom. It has a DVD and CD player with a full kitchen. I have not gotten all of this at any other place in Brazil. ” (Levert)
The apartment is in a great location, close to everything (including the metro). It is small but we were expecting that based on the photos. The apartment was neat and well maintained - everything worked properly. The local manager, John, was prompt and answered all our questions. There is a small shop right next to the apartment where you can buy most of the items (and a 24 hour shop a couple of blocks away for anything else). There was also a restaurant (sell food by weight) two buildings away - great food and awesome desserts. Very convenient to grab a quick bite.
I was thoroughly impressed with the unit, it exceeded all expectations. Very close to all destinations in Copacabana, highly recommended.
This apartment was so nice. It wasn't like, enormous. But the owners had thoughtfully put large attractive mirrors at different places to increase the feeling of size. Last year, we stayed in another apartment in Rio that felt like a corridor instead of a dwelling place. By contrast, this apartment felt spacious.
The bed was comfortable. The living room couch and easy chair were comfortable. And we are really picky because we like good back support.
I loved the small bedroom. From having lived for over a decade in Brazil, I know that a Brazilian would refer to it as maid quarters. If we had had one of our grandchildren (or children) with us, they would have loved the cozy "nook" feeling.
The washing machine worked great. The appliances seemed very new. The fridge worked great as did the microwave.
I can't comment on the stove because: We were only a couple of doors down from Estacao Sabor. I am sure it is the best pay-by-weight restaurant in all of Rio. This place has a marvelous array of fresh salads/fruits and vegetables, plus main course dishes. The desserts were out of this world. [Other pay-by-weight restaurants in the city that we tried had food that had obviously been overcooked, or had been sitting out for hours.]
We were a very short walk from Copacabana Beach, a fruit and vegetable market, grocery stores and so on.
WE FELT COMPLETELY SAFE the whole time.
The staff/the porters who open and shut the building access door were so polite and friendly.
There was a bit of street noise. We remedied this by shutting the living room window.
We used the ceiling fans and never needed to turn on the air conditioner.
Oh, and hot water from the taps.
I just really really relaxed and felt at home in this place. Thanks, owners!
I chose this particular apartment because of the location and we were so happy that we did! It was 2 blocks away from Copacabana Beach, 2 blocks away from the Metro Stations, which was extremely helpful in our getting around! grocery stores and restaurants at your disposal as well, just around the corner! Safe and secure! The pictures are exactly how the apartment really is - no surprises at all! Very clean and kept up very nicely. The doorman and the owner went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of! I would most definitely stay again. Property owner very professional and courteous! Customer service was his number 1 priority. Highly recommended for a trip to Rio! You will never regret it!
Location, location, location. The apartment is in a great spot. A main street with everything you might need within a few minutes walk. Great restaurants, cafes, grocery stores and buses or a cab stop right out the front door. The Metro is also a quick seven- ten minute walk.
The apartment is in clean and organized order and provides all you need for breakfast,lunch or dinner; not to mention entertainment to go along with any of them:CD's,DVD's or just good old TV. EVERYTHING in working order.
There is a 24 hour doorman ready to help and always with a smile. Ask anything and they will try their best to help.
I took my 82yr old mother and given the buzz in security entrance(standard for all apartment entrances, it seemed.) and personnel always waiting, we never felt unsafe. The same is to be said of the surrounding neighborhood that seemed to always be busy with people.
Not eough thanks could ever be given to owner. Traveling with an older person can be challenging, but with their help everything seemed easier. My phone calls and emails were promptly and kindly returned.(Mother's Day wish sent Saturday night) They were quick with helpful suggestions even any last minute tweaking my itinerary for the day called for,for mom's comfort; as well as any tour information needed when we weren't feeling like having to doing everything on our own. The combination of a great apartment, in a great location with a very thoughtful and professional rental process,made our stay in Rio unforgettable. I will recommend this apartment to all my friends and you.
Copacabana is a fun place, its a busy city and two blocks away is a beautiful beach.
The apartment photos are accurate except for the couch and chair which are covered in red furniture coverings. We had a back-flow problem when the upstairs apartment washed clothes; drainage was backing in thru the drains in the laundry room. I understand older buildings sometimes have issues. What I did not like is the owners response. I got a rude, sarcastic email from him claiming I wasn't doing enough to solve the problem and demanding that I drop all my plans to tend to his apartment. All along the maintenance workers at the apartment were working on the issues and eventually the problem was resolved. However, nothing like a nasty email to ruin a least one day of our vacation.
