Great apartment in a great location in botafogo. It is a 10 minute walk to sugar loaf which you can also see from the apartment. Lovely safe area, nice bar down the street and a great kilo place round the corner. Lots of taxis to get you to copacabana in 10 minutes, ipanema in about 20 depending on the traffic.
WiFi really good at the apartment too and there is loads of outdoor space with various terraces including fantastic views of botafogo bay one way, and Christ the redeemer from the top roof terrace.
Sergio was a great host, very helpful meeting us to help us settle in and offered to take us out for dinner. A very nice fella.
Recommend it if you want to stay outside of the tourist trap areas in a safe Rio area.
Wonderfull place, beautiful view! Everything as described, Sergio was very helpful and available before we got there, even if it was a last minute thing. highly recommend this host and apartment. Thank you Sergio!
This place has a lovely view and great outdoor space (several terraces) however the owner does not maintain the property very well and this detracts from what otherwise could be a really great apartment. Also the area where the apartment is located has many busy roads and highways and thus "local" dining or food shopping requires quite a trek. Lastly the property's contact, Sergio, while very helpful before we arrived. did not respond to any emails or phone calls after our arrival. Given that, at times, we had no electricity and no internet access his lack of responsiveness was most worrying! We hope this candid feedback will encourage the owner to ensure that future guests have a better experience.
Very good flat which is exactly how it is presented by Sergio.
Besides Sergio is very available in case we have any problem / question. Thanks a lot once again!
Great experience!!! good conditions, design, furniture.. and fantastic views, the appartment has a great localisation if you want to move around in Rio!!!
We enjoyed our entire stay - the view was breathtaking, house was magnificent, the spa, BBQ & rooftop outdoor area added alot of fun.
