About this listing
Private bedroom, air conditioning, one block away from beach, two blocks away from subway, wifi internet.
Private bedrooms for rent in a beautifully renovated apartment in Copacabana. Each room can accommodate up to two people.
Each room has a double bed, air conditioning, ceiling fan, big window with noise reduction and blackout curtain, closet and mirror.
There are two bathrooms. We also offer high speed wireless internet. Our building has an elevator and a doorman 24 hours a day.
We are located only one block away from Copacabana beach, very close to Posto 5. The Ipanema subway station is two blocks away. The beautiful beaches of Ipanema and Arpoador (best places for seeing the sunset!) are a mere 15-minute walk away from our home. When you're looking for agitated nightlife, the neighbourhood of Lapa is just a 30-minute bus ride away. The airport Santos Dumont is also some 30 minutes away by bus, or you can get a taxi for no more than R$30.
Please let us know if you need to check in or out at a time other than the specified. We may be able to work something out '=)
Copacabana is a busy neighbourhood with LOTS of restaurants, bars and shops. Aside from the bars, you'd probably have more fun spending the nights in other parts of town. There's also some theaters (playhouses) here. My favorite thing in Copa is the beach. Also, it's great to be so close to Ipanema, Botafogo and Lapa all at once.
There's a million bus lines that will take you to most places here - even across Guanabara bay. There's also the subway, which doesn't go many places, but it does go pretty far. We don't have parking space in our building, but there are parking lots nearby. There are buses here in Copacabana that will take you straight to any of the two airports.
No smoking inside the house, and no illegal drugs. Please, try to keep the bathroom tidy ;-) Also, clean up after yourself when you use the kitchen. Keep the noise down between midnight and 8am.
When you leave the apartment, please remember to turn off the lights and the air conditioning.
We stayed 10 days with my wife and two kids, the area is nice, there is pharmacies, restaurants, a nice breakfast place right around the corner and it's two blocks away from Copacabana 5th Post, even you can walk 7 or 8 blocks to Arpoador beach (Post 7) which we think it's cleaner and beautiful. Vera was a great host and Bernardo too. The apartment has all the comodities for you have a comfortable stay..2 baths, nice kitchen, tvs, music, clothing washer, games, gated entrance, 24hrs door man, you name it...well we had a great time in Rio....thanks....
Obrigada esta tudo perfeito!!!
Very nice flat , exceptionally equipped as described . Worth noting that Internet works very fast. Only one inconvenient , the 2 bedrooms are on the street , which is very very noisy. Anyway , a very nice flat to recommend.
Great place to stay in Copacabana. A very nice apartment and a block away from the beach, across the street from a market, and ton of food options near by (our favorite being Apetite, the small café around the corner). Bernardo and his peoples were great. Met us when we arrived and handed the keys off and were there if we needed. If you're coming to Copa, this is a great place to rent.
Bernardo e Vera nos receberam de forma incrível. O apartamento é até melhor do que nas fotos! esperamos voltar!
Este apartamento em Copacabana é excelente e superou minhas expectativas, sua localização é ótima, a higiene assim como a comodidade são muito boas, espero poder voltar outras vezes. A anfitriã Vera que nos recepcionou foi muito atenciosa e nos indicou muitos pontos para visitas, agradeço a todos pelo excelente trabalho.
We stayed here during Carnavale. And like other places, prices were inflated. I communicated with Bernardo, his mother Bete, and Vera their friend. Probably too many people to discuss matters with but We only met Vera and she was timely and friendly.
Pros: location close to copa and ipanema. Very spacious. 24 hr security. Safe environment though in a very old building, the apartment appears updated. Washing machine available.
Cons: Very noisy at night, almost as if the windows were open. Especially during Carnavale when people are talking and yelling on the streets. But even on a regular day the noise of cars and trucks made it difficult to sleep. Although the apartment is orderly, sheets and couches were old and stained. Drainage in washroom was poor. Air conditioner in the 2nd room was leaky. We had some misunderstandings about additional payment of one night over type of currency. Although it was an error made on the owners side, it was not acknowledged and caused us some hassle to get the desired currency for what equated to only about 20USD.
The apartment is very well located, there are buses and taxis in the street and it's noisy. Sorry for the problem with the air condicioner, we have it fixed and there are new sheets and towels now. I apologized about the misunderstanding of the payment but all the prices here, in Airbnb, as you can see, are in US dollars and we offered the possibility of payment in reais, Brazilian money. Hope you enjoyed your staying in Rio.

About the Host, Bernardo
Eu adoro ler, ir ao cinema, tocar violão. Morro de vontade de conhecer o Rio Grande do Sul. Quero ir mais vezes ao Uruguay, e quero conhecer Peru e Bolívia. Nunca viajei usando Airbnb, mas mal posso esperar para estrear!
