We were very happy with the accommodation. We have booked it again for another weekend in 2 weeks!
The reservation was canceled 471 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We had the best time at Ricardos studio. It is big but cozy and the view is incredible!
We stayed for two weeks and we will come back absolutely!
The studio has plenty of room for two, as tough it'd be a little bit crowded with four people in it.
Next to the Selaron stairways its placement couldn't be better.
If you follow ladeira de santa teresa and go up, you will find many nice little restaurants. If you descend the Selaron stairways you will find the night life of Rio de Janeiro as well as the metro and the buses.
Ricardo and his wive are really nice and helpful. They brought us cooking utensiles and fresh towels after a few days.
We can't do anything but recomend this place!
Nous avons adoré notre séjour chez Ricardo et Rachel ! L'accueil a été impeccable. Dès notre descente du taxi, Rachel est venue nous ouvrir la porte et nous guider vers le logement... qui s'est avéré charmant, bien aéré et ventilé, plein de plantes vertes, et juste assez bohème pour nous séduire... Avec une vue imprenable sur Lapa, en bas des fameux escaliers !
Il y a de beaux livres d'art et de design, de la musique, plusieurs "coins" pour se détendre et lire, ou tout simplement prendre un petit "caïpirinha" en regardant les lumières de la ville, le soir...
Nous y retournerons avec joie si jamais nous revoyons Rio de Janeiro.
Ricardo and Rachel were great hosts. They were really helpfull, friendly.The appartment is beautiful, clean, well located, we felt at home immediatly. We would recommend it to everyone !!
Ricardo was a great host and I recommend his beautiful flat with a great view and very special atmosphere!
We loved staying here! The apartment is so unique and really nicely done up. The open wall really makes you feel like you are right in the heart of Rio. The balcony has a great view over the city and isn't overlooked so feels safe. We especially loved his record player and great selection of records. The apartment is really close to the heart of Leblon and Santa Theresa so be prepared for some steep hills to walk. Also, due to the location some taxi drivers seemed to struggle to find it. Ricardo lives in the same building and was very helpful with a late check in and arranged a taxi for us on check out. Overall it was an amazing place and we would definitely recommend it.
