The apartment is in a quiet back street of Ipanema with many restaurants nearby. The beach is four blocks away (10 minutes).
The apartment itself is clean and reasonably modern. Wifi worked well. Only the master bedroom has a real air conditioning unit, which also works well. The second bedroom is small with a very narrow bed.
The building has a doorman who is present 24/24. To get inside the apartment one needs a code for the electronic lock. This is convenient for travelers that arrive at an inconvenient hour, as you do not need to make an appointment with the owner.
Rafaella was very helpful by giving tips on where to go out for drinks, dinner, and parties.
I really enjoyed staying at Rafaella's place. It's very well located within Ipanema. The beach is a couple of blocks away, about a 10 minute walk. Restaurants and bars are around the corner and the apartment itself is located at the end of a quiet street.Next time in Rio, I will certainly consider staying here again.
Beautiful apartment in an idyllic part of the city. The place is spacious and charming and has good air conditioning. I would definitely stay there again.
Rafaella and her place were wonderful. This apartment is nicely situated in a safe neighborhood, not far from the beach and other important attractions. There is one nice sized bedroom with an additional small sitting room and closet and then another small bedroom just big enough for a single bed. One full bathroom and then a small additional one. The living room has a small couch with the dining table and stools for the small counter leading into the kitchen. It is very cozy. Fine for two friends where one won't mind the smaller bed. Or a couple and a child. It was really clean and Rafaella was very responsive to all our needs. The neighborhood is sweet with good restaurants and stores right around the corner. Beach is 4 blocks or so- a short walk. 24 hour doorman- nice that he is there- altho no English spoken so not much interaction. We enjoyed our short stay there! Loved Rio! Many thanks to Rafaella!
We stayed one week in Rafaella's apartment which is located very close to a lot of bars and restaurant. Rafaella was very friendly, uncomplicated and gave us a lot of good tips for bars and restaurants. We enjoyed it a lot and would always come back.
Rafaella is an excellent host who is willing to help out in any way she can with advice and direction. The apt is great and super clean, has all the amenities one coukd ask for and its close to everything in Ioanema. I had a great stay and would def come back or inquire about several other apt she has access to on airbb
this is a review so let me point out some things for the renters that are a bit more particular in their needs. the small bedroom is very small. just a single bed fits. it's cozy but has AC and a window. if you are clostraphobic I might be a problem. second it's noisy at certain times of the day or night as its a second floor apt right over the entrance. so if you are looking for absolute silence go higher up. ...after all it's Rio
I stayed at Rafaella's apartment with my family for 2 days and we had a great experience. The place is very well located, just two blocks from Ipanema's best street and a couple more blocks to the beach. It was perfect for our needs. It has cable TV, all the supplies you need and it's cozy and comfortable. The only observation I would make is that the air conditioning in the bedroom might not be sufficient to cool the whole apartment during warmer, hotter days. Rafaella was very helpful and responsive during our stay. We felt very welcomed at her place. Thank you, Rafaella!
Very nice place, furniture, cleanness and location!
On the plus side:
Rafaella was very responsive to my messages and made sure we were comfortable in our stay, giving us as much information as possible prior to arrival and in a detailed guide left in the apartment.
Our flight was 3 hours delayed and, despite her being unable to meet us due to the delay, she promptly arranged alternative methods for us to get into the apartment.
She was also eventually flexible around checkout times.
We were 3 girls in the apartment which has one double bed, one sofa bed in the living room and one single bed. All three had bed linen and were pretty equipped for a decent night stay.
The TV and wifi were working perfectly, the main room has a nice comfortable bed, cute decoration and is overall pleasant.
Above all, the apartment is in a fantastic location - in the heart of Ipanema and walking distance to the interesting stuff, but at the same time on a quiet, leafy street.
On the negative:
The apartment is much smaller and more run down than we expected from the photos. The bathroom and the wc need renovation work, the kitchen is very small and, although it is equipped with fridge and stove, you probably can't do much there.
The second room is very small and only really fits one single bed in it.
The apartment is on a low floor and there was a lot of noise at all times of the day, which affected our sleep. Although it is a very quiet, residential street, there was noise from kids playing around and cars getting in and out of their garages.
Overall I'd say that, for a comfortable stay, it is ideal for a couple and no more than that. And depending on the season, you might be better off staying in a hotel as the rent was almost the same price as a hotel stay.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
