We had a very good experience. Lewy was very helpful and hospitable, apartment has a good location ( beach, restaurants, bus stop, safe banks etc), Lewy gave us late check out and showed around and gave us many useful tips; staff in the house was nice as well.
The location is great, literally 1 block from the beach. It is also at walking distance from Arpoador and Ipanema beaches.
The apartment is just like the pictures and suitable for 4 adults. The neighborhood can be a little bit noisy at night, but you are in the center of the action in Copacabana, so it's totally acceptable.
Last, but not least, Levy is a great host! He explained patiently all the details we needed to get to the main tourist attractions, taxi tips and much more.
We would definitely stay there again!
This location can't be beat - 1 block from Copacabana Beach, towards the Ipanema side so it's easy walking over to Ipanema beach, too. It was a perfect base for a do-it-all weekend in Rio - some beach time, Pao de Azucar, Cristo, Botanic Garden, Santa Teresa, and Lapa. I took the bus everywhere and Levy gave a great orientation about the bus lines and helpful hints on the tourist attractions. The apartment is sparse but it has the basics you need - except maybe a beach towel!
What can I say, Levy and his wife are the attentive hosts you can find on Airbnb in Rio. He is always very punctual and his apartments are always spotless, highly recommended !! He is the only host I can really count on here in Rio, he has worked with me many times as my work schedule varies a lot causing me to check in at very late hours at times !!
A Carioca you can count on (Hard to find in Rio) !!
Thanks for everything Levy
Fomos muito bem recebidas pelo Levy, que é muito pontual!
O apartamento é o que se vê nas fotos, é possível hospedar 4 pessoas desde que não pretendam passar muito tempo no apartamento. Para 2 pessoas já é mais tranquilo.
Ótima localização, possui diversos restaurantes, supermercados, bares e a praia pertinho. (recomendo a lanchonete Bibi Sucos)
A segurança do prédio é um ponto forte, é necessário fazer cadastro individual na portaria e o pessoal da portaria é muito atencioso e prestativo!
Levy was helpful. He met me at the flat and showed me how everything worked. |And followed up to make sure everything was okay. It´s a great location near the Copacabana beach about 4 blocks or so from the Copacabana Palace. The flat itself was a studio but spacious. I really felt at home. Thanks Levy!
The apartment has a brilliant location: it is literally 60 meters away from the beach. The flat is perfect for a couple to spend a week there (we have spent 8 nights at Levy's). As right next to the flat there is a little pub, the flat might be noisy at night. So those sensitive to noises might bring ear plugs for sleeping, otherwise you will surely get used to the environment as we did too. As some previous commenters have already mentioned that having real hot water might be tricky sometimes as well as you have to use the toilette without throwing the paper in, but this is a feature of Rio de Janeiro, so is not a big deal. Levy is a very helpful host who is incredibly responsive (both via mail or phone) and gives you a handful of information to get started with the city (which buses to use to see the main sights, where to eat, shop, etc). All in all, I can highly recommend the flat for couples or companies of 3 to spend time in this exciting city.
Excellent stay. Levy has so helpful - he took my friend and I on a 2hr tour of the area. The apartment was spotless and the security for the place is 100% top notch - which is important in the area. The couch that you see in the pic also folds out into a bed so that you can fit 3-4 people if you so choose.
The beach is literally 1.5 blocks away and is absolutely beautiful. You're then also only a 20min walk from the high-end areas.
The shower is a bit touchy with having to change the knobs back and forth to compensate for the hot/cold water. But that is very little to worry about, especially for the price. Would certainly stay here again.
From the start, Levy was very communicative and got in contact to make sure that we had all the information to arrive safely. We actually had trouble to get there because our flight ran very late, but he still stood awaiting for our arrival. He also gave us very useful information on how to move around and other misc information.
The studio is well equipped and very well located. As the ad says, just a few meters from Copacabana beach, and with many amenities at close distance. It is perfect for a Rio getaway with your partner. On the negative side, the street is very noisy at night (closing the window makes no difference) and the shower is very difficult to control, going hot and cold in bursts following no obvious logic. Also, plumbing is not good and you cannot throw any paper whatsoever into the toilet, but that's common all over RJ state anyway. Overall, those minor points do not detract from the experience, and I would recommend anybody to stay at this place as a starting point for a great time in Rio.
Levy is most probably one of the most helpful hosts out there. He not only welcomed me at a very late time of the day but also showed me around in detail another day. The flat itself is well kept and everything you need is available in the flat. The wireless (which was very important) works flawlessly and the bed is as soft as one can imagine! Thanks Levy for your hospitality and I look forward to revisit Rio in future.
