This apartment is a small paradise between Copacabana and Ipanema, 200 m from the sand !! :-)
Very quiet and pleasant, you can enjoy a perfect stay.
We must say a big thank you to Levy, for his warm welcome and advice throughout the stay.
This is a well located apartment, to recommend and where you feel safe to enjoy your holiday.
Nuestra experiencia fue excepcional. Supero ampliamente nuestras expectativas. Levy nuestro anfitrión nos aconsejo y ayudo en todo momento durante nuestra estadía. El departamento muy lindo y una ubicación inmejorable. Muchísimas gracias por todo!
Levy é um excelente anfitrião, muito atencioso e prestativo.
O apartamento é reformado e a localização é ótima, porém não tem elevadores e fica no terceiro andar.
Levy's Arpoador flat is in a great location - stay here and you'll be on either Copacabana or Ipanema within 5 minutes of walking out the door. It's also really nice inside, with a large double bedroom, two good-sized TV's, and a modern bathroom.
Levy himself was well-organised with check-in, which was very smooth, and left us a huge number of tips for things to do during our last week in Rio. We had already done the main tourist attractions, but Levy left us many suggestions of more 'Carioca'-style things to do to help us really experience Rio properly. He was also reliable in that he booked punctual and cheap airport taxis for friends that left the apartment early, which was great.
One disappointment was that we were asked to pay R$50 on check-out for excess electricity, which we deemed unfair given that we had paid a significant premium to stay there during the World Cup, and had cleaned the flat in its entirety for Levy despite having also paid a substantial amount of cleaning fees as part of our reservation. It is also very important to stick to the rules of the building, which means no noise from 10pm to 8am, so if you choose this apartment you will have to be confident of sticking to that rule.
Stay here and you will have a very nice, modern apartment which will serve as a great base from which to explore Rio. We definitely recommend it!
The guest Ross just forgot to inform the truth :
1- the R$ 50 asked to pay for the extra electricity, happened because one of his friends left the apartment completely opened all day long till 08:30pm, when I came after a call from the administrador of the building, because there was nobody inside with the key inside and with all the lights, ceiling fans and the air besides the risks of been stolen. Besides another friend jumped the building fence in order to get inside of my apartment.
2- about the noise, he also forgot to inform that he and his friends came back to the apartment one day almost 1:00 am doing to much noise, which is completely forbidden anywhere. Only after some residents had complained very much they decided to stop completely the noise.
3- The apartment he left completely dirty and very disorganized
Our host, Levy, was friendly overall. The place was a bit smaller than expected, but did the trick in the end. The neighborhood was nice.
La situation de l appartement est idéale , à moins de 100m de la plage au niveau d' Ipanema / Arpoador, à mon sens le meilleur coin d Ipanema.
L appartement, fonctionnel est conforme à la description.
Lévy a été très disponible et accueillant me prodiguant conseils et bonnes adresses, c est un hôte sérieux et chaleureux.
J y retournerais sans hésiter.
Levy (and his wife) was extremely helpful in providing tips of places to go in Rio and even for our travels outside of Rio. The location of the apartment was perfect for New Years in Rio. It is also very quiet and the AC works well to stay cool in the summer heat. There were some issues with the bathroom but otherwise generally clean.
