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.

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.

Fiquei bem satisfeita com o imóvel!

  • 5 of 5

Fui muito bem recebida, o apto é exatamente esse aí da foto. Achei super aconchegante, e super completo. Além de ter uma ótima localização , tem uma vista muito bacana da Glória. Todos os dias tomei café da manhã numa padaria que fica colada no edifício, e andei de metrô que fica no final da caçada do prédio . Muito bom, recomendo a todos.

Ótimo apartamento com fácil acesso ao Rio!

  • 5 of 5

Estive no Rio de Janeiro a trabalho por 3 meses, e acabei optando por ficar em um flat de temporada ao invés do usual hotel. Foi minha primeira vez com esta modalidade de alojamento, e não me arrependi!

O flat é excelente, adorei minha estadia lá e corresponde exatamento ao que você vê nas fotos e na descrição. Está muito próximo da estação Glória do metrô, leva menos de 2 minutos da porta do apartamento no décimo andar até a plataforma do metrô. Gastei apenas 15 minutos para chegar ao centro da cidade todos os dias e isto é ótimo! Nos fins de semana também fica fácil ir as praias ou qualquer outro ponto turístico do Rio.

Também há um ponto de táxi na esquina, ainda mais perto do que a estação do metrô! Por falar em proximidade, há de tudo muito próximo do apto, incluindo bancos, mercados, farmácias, restaurantes, lavanderia e uma feira aos domingos.

O apartamento estava super limpo e isto é algo importante para mim, já que tenho alergia respiratória e não tive qualquer problema por lá. Está completamente equipado, incluindo cozinha com microondas, frigobar, TV, wifi, e tudo mais que você pode precisar durante a estadia. A vista para baia de Guanabara é espetacular! O edifício é familiar, com porteiro 24 horas todos os dias.

Viviane e Eduardo foram super simpáticos e deram ótimas dicas sobre a vizinhança.

I had been in Rio de Janeiro for 3 months because of my job. I use to stay at hotels when travelling, but this time I gave a shoot for an apartment and it was a great choice!

This loft is a wonderful place to stay! I can't say enough good things about this it. It is so close to the subway with easy access to the city center and to the beaches during the weekends.

There is also a taxi stand at the corner, so commuting or getting to any destination in Rio is never a problem. The building is familiar and there is a doorman 24/7.

The apartment is super clean and have every amenities you may need during your stay including TV and WiFi. It is very practical, well designed, the bed is comfortable and the view to the Guanabara bay is incredible!

Viviane and Eduardo were very friendly and provided recommendations about restaurants, markets, drug stores and banks... everything in the neighborhood, close to the apartment.

If you are planning your trip to Rio for business or pleasure, you have found the place to stay!
