Beautiful apartment but noisy and no view
First the good: the apartment itself is beautiful, updated and spacious with all modern amenities. The owners were pleasant to deal with and the process went fairly smoothly. They had a chilled bottle of champagne and mixed nuts waiting for us when we arrived. There is a doorman on duty 24/7. The apartment is located right across the street from the beach. We were able to use the rooftop (with the other residents) to watch the New Year's fireworks. Also, the TV set remote had an option (that we found on our own) that allowed you to change the language of the TV shows on some of the channels into English which was very nice.
Now the bad: the apartment is on the street level at the back of the building which means 2 things: there is no view and the master bedroom was very noisy due to street noise and just people walking by. The window had only a single pane of glass, and we felt like our bed was on the street. As a result, we tried to sleep with ear plugs the first night but got a lousy night's sleep. After that, we moved to an extra "bedroom" (a pass-through room between the kitchen and the living/dining room) that contained a day bed and trundle bed underneath. It was a little more quiet there. The other bedroom contained a double bed which is really two small for 2 people when you are used to sleeping in at least a queen-sized bed.
We are sorry your experience was not up to your expectation, but certainly wanted to clarify a couple of things for anyone reading this.
1st we never said anything or marketed our apartment with a view. it was always on the 1st floor! the only thing we ever said was on New Years Eve you could go on the roof to watch the fireworks!!! 2nd is regarding the windows this was not a true statement we installed airplane grade windows that we paid thousands of dollars extra to have the best quality windows for noise and temp control. Also for sleeping we installed a blackout curtain to make sure these problems did not occur!!
I think they did not notice the blackout curtain was there. last on the list they spoke about the noise? they booked an apartment on Copacabana Beach right on the beach where the biggest party in the world takes place!!! not sure what they thought was going to happen the music starts at 9am and goes until 2 or 3am so i am sure it was a bit noisy. over all this was a very unfair review of our Apt.
