" 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)
A friend and I stayed at this property during the Olympics and we could not have asked for a better experience. James was very helpful in answering a few questions that I had before the booking and was very responsive. When we arrived Was pleased to see that the apartment looks even better than it did in the photos. Metro and bus access is only a block away and the beach is a straight shot. There are many restaurants, markets, and other stores in the neighborhood very close by. The staff at the building were also all very helpful. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this property in the future.
The apartment is in a great location and close to everything. The apartment is centrally located to Copacabana Beach (two blocks away), a small grocery store right next door, and lots of restaurants. The pictures in the ad of the apartment are accurate.
The apartment is on the small side; but, never felt cramped. It's clean and well-maintained, and has a large flat screen TV (with cable) in the living room and small TVs in the bedroom (also with cable). The beds (double/single), sofa (pullout bed), and reclining chair are comfortable. The apartment comes with linens, towels, laundry detergent, bath soap, WiFi (however, the WiFi doesn't reach the back bedroom and is on the slow side), a single combination washer and dryer (the washer worked great; but, the dryer option didn't work), air conditioning (one in each bedroom), microwave, refrigerator, and stove, pots and pans, plus dishes and cutlery, all the conveniences of home. The apartment is managed by John, who is very responsive and friendly. He welcomed us upon arrival, and was pleasant to deal with from start to finish; excellent customer service.
One thing to note is the apartment building does have underground parking; however, the rental apartment doesn't come with parking, which is at a premium in Rio. There is a parking garage about 2 blocks away (down from the McDonald's) and within easy walking distance to the apartment. It would be nice in the future, if the rental apartment provided parking in the apartment building underground parking garage.
Access to the apartment building is controlled. There are 24/7 doormen that "buzz" you into the building, and are very friendly. The apartment is in a safe area of Rio, and we didn't have any issues walking around day or night; we felt safe the entire time.
The owner (James) contacted us prior to departing for Rio, and was accessible by iMessage during our stay. It was nice that the owner contacted us prior. He provided the manager's (John) phone number, WiFi password, and door code, which he also provided by email as well. We definitely plan to return to Rio and stay at the apartment. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and highly recommend this apartment for your holiday to Rio!
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!
