The place is great and the location is pretty great as well. The neighborhood is quiet and always felt safe and you're still close to Lapa, Gloria Metro and Largo de Guimaraes in Santa Teresa. The apartment is just as it appears, absolutely love the house, it's very beautiful. John is also a great guy, very knowledgeable about the city and always willing to give advice or just talk about the city.
John was very hospitable, welcoming and helpful.
The ktichnette is very much like the pictures show; simple but functional with location being superb.
The building is a bit older, however that is the norm in Rio. Nonetheless it is safe.
