We loved our stay at Ricardo’s amazing apartment, he’s a perfect host. The apartment views are fantastic from brilliant sunrises to the splendour of the night lights of the city. A bit of energy was needed to tackle the steep hills and steps but it was worth the effort. We used the basic cooking facilities for breakfast but ate out in the nearby lively Lapa district most of the time where there are plenty of restaurants, cafes, bars and music venues. A great area to stay resulting in a very good experience.
An amazing place, well decorated and well situated on the top of the Escadaria Selaron and near Santa Teresa and Lapa, with a wonderful view on all Rio. You can enjoy the sunrise every morning !! Ricardo and his girlfriend were very attentive and helpful. They avised us about a lot of activities, restaurants... Very friendly ! A great place to stay in Rio !
Ricardo and his family are very nice and generous. Our flight landed at 6 am and he greated us with coffee, breakfast and allowed us to store our bags there which was very cool since there were still renters in the flat. He also took us to a futbol match that was awesome. The flat was very clean and had beautiful views of the city, the bay and sugarloaf. The city is very busy and since it is open you can hear everything. The flat is central to all the beautiful sites to see in the city.
Ricardo is a super relaxed guy who really takes care about his guests. The appartment is a treasure with lovely details, an amazing view, great music and its spacious, clean and just unique. if you want to have a nice stay in rio dont miss ricardos flat. the area is lovely, save and central. thanks a lot ricardo!!!!!
Ricardo and his wife made us feel very comfortable on our arrival. During our stay they gave us information about the city and places we wanted to see. They told us about the history of the neighborhood. It was very interesting. They were available throughout our stay to answer any questions. The place is great and has everything you need plus amazing views of the city. I would recommend to anyone who is trying to see the city. We had a fantastic time.
Ricardo was very helpful and assisted in any queries I had. Very friendly person and willing to help.
Ricardo and his wife and absolutely charming, and their child and dog were adorable! He speaks some English, which was helpful, but it was a little more challenging (though still very fun) communicating with his wife. So Portuguese skills are a plus. The accommodations are just as endearing and idyllic as the pictures make it look. The view of the city centro of Rio is excellent, and the lively neighborhoods of Lapa and St. Teresa are exciting! The hosts assessment of group size are accurate -- more than 3 can get a little cramped, though 4 people is certainly doable if you don't mind all sharing a bathroom. Our group was a little sad to leave the coziness and the view. We would definitely recommend it!
