We had a wonderful time in this beautiful apartment! Great neighborhood and proximity to all! Wolfgang was great with information and assistance. We will definitely comeback!
Wolfgang was great! He responded to all inquiries in a timely manner and was very helpful with pointing us in the right direction if he was unable to answer. In Hawaii, we say "Two shaka's and a howzit" when service is excellent (equates to "Two thumbs up").
The flat was exactly as expected through the description and the pictures. After travelling for many hours, it was delightful to see a couple of bottles of water in the refrigerator for us. The bath soap, shampoo/ conditioner along with the body lotion was great. Get a SIM card beforehand as Wolfgang provides a cellphone for guests to use while there.
The flat was clean and the kitchen fully stocked. It was situated perfectly two blocks from Copacabana beach towards the Ipanema side- location was superb with grocery stores and a variety of eateries nearby.
Utilize Jose, the driver/ guide recommended by Wolfgang- he was superb!
The views of the ocean and the Sugar Loaf were superb. I highly recommend this place to stay.
I'll start the review with the minor inconveniences first:
- The stairs leading to the top floor were a little narrow which make taking luggage up a bit of a hassle.
- Although all rooms have AC, the living rooms have only fans which aren't enough in hot days (most of the time).
- The balcony and small pool area can use more lighting.
As for the pros:
- Very roomy apartment, enough to sleep 8 comfortably. (Beds+ couch+ mattress ont he floor).
- Necessary appliances were all available, plus a polite maid that is available on call.
- Location was very convenient with access to both Copacabana and Ipanema beaches just a short walk away.
- Most buses pass in front of the Aparthotel and the metro is less than 15 minutes away.
- Communication with Wolfgang was very practical & clear and he replied to all of our inquiries in a timely manner.
All in all I recommend this apartment if you're staying with a group and would like a place that's close to the main beaches but not in the middle of the touristy side.
Wolfgang was an amazing host. He was very helpful and responsive. The apartment is located very central and is in a great location. Only a short walk to Copacabana beach and Ipanema beach. The apartment has amazing views and the terrace is the optimal spot for a nice glass of wine during sunsets. The apartment was very clean when we arrived. I highly recommend this apartment!
We loved our relatively short stay at Wolfgangs place, although only two nights before heading off to ilha grande, we found the location to be incredibly convenient, only minutes away from the beach! The flat was clean and as described, and Wolfgang was easy to communicate with before or trip to ensure everything was organised. Particularly liked the beers and water coke etc. left in the fridge for us on arrival, a nice touch! A highly recommended appartment if you're looking for somewhere central. We were 8 people, but realistically if you're staying for more than a night or two I think a max of 6 people would be more comfortable.
Perfect location ,helpful host ,beautiful and clean and very comfortable apartment, awesome views from terrace and all windows to the sea . Secure surroundings and reception. 3 min footwalk to the beach. Cafes,shops,restaurants,taxis,public transportation within 1 minute footwalk. we´ll come back soon!
Overall, the booking experience with Wolfgang couldn't be better, he responds quickly to any correspondence before and during your stay. We stayed 5 nights in the penthouse apartment, which was in a great location between Cococabana and Ipanema, and the walk to both beaches is quite short. The apartment terrace was amazing with great views and the little plunge pool was a great addition. The space was very clean although although the space wasn't ready till 5pm which definitely put a damper on our first day in Rio. But, she did comeback mid-stay to tidy up which was great! The furniture is also very minimal and honestly quite uncomfortable. Otherwise the apartment meet our expectations and provided us a nice place to relax after our excursions in Rio. Wolfgang allowed us a late checkout on our last day which let us get a full day in at the beach before getting on a plane. All in all I would recommend renting this space from Wolfgang!
thanks a lot for your Review.
Sorry that the maid took so long for cleaning. There was a group of 8 persons checking out the same day around noontime, so it was a lot of work. For a situation like that it will be better if she will work with a second person to help her.
