Great stay in Rio

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic trip to Rio during the Olympic Games and we were so glad that we chose this apartment for our stay! It's the perfect size for one or two people, away from the main tourist zones but close enough to get there very easily using the subway.

The apartment is exactly as described and shown in the pictures. The hosts were wonderful - met us there on time for check-in and check-out, and gave us really good advice for things to do (and not to do), places to eat, and all the other information a tourist needs in a foreign city. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if we ever get the chance to go back to Rio!

Pristine,Contemporary,Bright and Refreshing

  • 4 of 5

Refreshingly finished space with great transitional flow from one area to the next. The apartment is on the front of the building with east facing windows which allows the sun to flood the unit with tons of natural light. Everything appears to be brand new from the fresh paint on the walls to the pristine bed linens and bath towels. The unit has a designers touch throughout. The bathroom features a focal wall covered in hand painted terra cotta tile above the vessel styled basin which sits atop a butcher block counter which has sufficient space for your essentials. The bathroom boast a spacious walk in shower with fantastic water pressure & hot water on demand system. The kitchen is done in contemporary style with all the essentials to prepare a meal fault here dorm room size refrigerator. The sleeping area features two single beds pushed together with very good quality mattresses the bed is backed by a built in backlit head board. There's an armoire with two draws unfortunately half the armoire is dedicated for the owners use. There's a hammock in the apartment don't miss the opportunity to try it it's fun and relaxing. There are phenomenal views of the Guanabara Bay, Sugar loaf and Santo Dumont airport from the windows however, due to the exterior maintenance work on the facade there's a mesh tarp draped down the front of the window which obscures the view slightly( no photo ops.) During my phone introduction to the owner Viviane Ponti I felt as though I was talking to an old friend. I found her to be very polite, engaging, friendly & professional and, her brother Edwardo who greeted me at the apartment to be any less. Pros.: clean space, comfortable, great location, near metro, walkable area, good value, good internet speed, quiet building. Cons: small refrigerator, insufficient wardrobe space & exterior noise can be a bit much with open windows. Edwardo states the refrigerator & wardrobe issue will be addressed. I would rebook here again without a doubt. Thank you Viviane for sharing your space. Um beijo.

Tip, if you take the metro to the beach on Sunday you'll notice the masses of locals also in route so, if you find yourself leaving the beach in a great exodus I'd advise you to plan dinner at a nearby restaurant that way you'll enjoy a much more comfortable ride home when you embark on the system.

O melhor apartamento em 10 anos Rio

  • 5 of 5

Já venho 10 anos cada ano no Rio e este apartamento é o melhor encontrado.

Vista espetacular sobre a baia de Guanabara, ótima localizaçao (entre Lapa e Copacabana, perto do metro, ponto de taxi), em um bairro tranquilo e seguro (Glória). Apartamento claro e espaçoso, decorado com muito bom gosto, excelente cama, cozinha e banheiro ultra moderno. Recepção amigável com muito bons conselhos. Parabéns!! Lugar super recomendado!!

My second home away from home ...

  • 5 of 5

I am kind of a frequent visitor to Rio and have been there already twice. I enjoyed my stay here from the minute I entered the apartment till I left. What you see on the pictures and the description of the apartment is exactly what you get; there is nothing else to add. I am somewhat picky when it comes to staying at other people's home, but this apartment is so nicely decorated with light and colour and so cosy, that I really felt at home. (by the way, whoever cleans the apartment does a good job, too!)

Everything from making a reservation to getting your keys in Rio and check-out works flawlessly. If you have never been to Rio before, make use of Kátia's and Viviane's recommendations ! They are valuable.

Thank you again Viviane for hosting me. I am coming bank.
