The Space

Between Sugar Loaf (where you can go walking only 10min) and Christ the Redeemer which you can see from the entrance gate (not from the windows because of the trees in front of them).

Wooden bed and excellent hand made mattress, cable tv, wi-fi and air conditioner at your room; the apartment has two bathooms, both very comfortable! I have very good sheets and towels for your comfort. I'll offer you a big "brazilian" breakfast.

You can use whatever you want in the whole house; the apartment is close to everything: grocery stores, bars, bakeries, restaurants, shopping, banks, good entertainment in a very safe área, you can walk up to each of these places .

The b & b is in a residential building, access for two elevators, near the Tube, and a bus to each and every place in Rio . I'm a 5 min walk to Aterro do Flamengo (to jogging and enjoy the view), near Copacabana, Ipanema and the city center Lapa almong other important places of Rio de Janeiro.

The apartment is in a very central area of Rio, easy to access every important place or event in Rio!

The apartmente is clean, cosy , with a lovely and kind female labrador dog, calm and happy.

Plenty of good food, ( fresh fruits, many covers and jellys for bread, egg, ham, cheese, etc., etc, and etc.) kitchen equipped with stove, fridge/freezer, microwave, laundy, wash machine, all avaiable to you.

High speed wireless Internet (10 mb) , cabe TV and 24 hours doorman .

I share the space with pleasure, I'm very easy going and helpfull. I'll give you a breakfast of a king. Be welcome!

  • Noemi was an excellent hostess. She was very friendly, and her place was very clean. The apartment was well maintained, and the building is secure.

  • The House:
    The apartment was clean, cosy and well maintained. The bathroom was always clean and Noemi always left breakfast for me -- fruits, cereal, cakes but I'm not really a breakfast person so I didn't avail myself of them.

    The Location:
    The apartment is located in a safe neighbourhood. I walked back quite late couple of times and I wasn't anxious or scared. There are taxis as well as good restaurants nearby. The metro is 5 minutes away.

    My host:
    Noemi is kind, helpful and made me feel at home. She knows a lot about my area of research so she gave me useful information I needed to hit the ground running. More importantly, Noemi is the kind of host that isn't too overbearing. She lets you have a your space, which is really good.

    Overall, I would recommend her place to family and friends!

  • A estadia foi ótima. Nossa anfitriã colocou sua residência completamente à nossa disposição, prestando-nos informações que precisávamos, mantendo um relacionamento de confiança, alegria e bem-estar. Em verdade, Noemi é mais uma amiga que fizemos no Rio. Recomendo com a máxima pontuação.

  • Staying with Noemi was marvellous. We arrived in morning and our room was already ready for us to check in. Room and apartment is clean. Location is great in nice neighbourhood where you are able to walk at night. Noemi is lovely host and very warm. First day she explained us all about the city, gave us metro card, tips, etc.. Next time I will be in Rio I would be glad to stay at Noemi's place.

  • Estoy feliz, fue una experiencia de 9 dias maravillosa. El lugar es muy cómodo, limpio, amplio e iluminado, su exteriores maravillosos. Desde la ventana se puede observar toda la flora que caracteriza a Brasil. Es un lugar donde se puede acceder facilmente a cualquier lugar de Rio de Janeiro, especialmente a los puntos turisticos como Cristo corcovado, Pan de azucar (caminando), Jardin Botanico entre otros. Para movilizarse tiene cerca calles principales donde es facil tomar un Omnibus que van a todas partes, sino a un par de cuadras, se encuentra el metro estación botafogo (el que se puede utilizar para ir a las principales playas y centro), de facil acceso y manejo. Ambos, omnibus y metro muy economico (todo eso lo aprendí con la ayuda de Noemi)
    No puedo dejar de lado a la maravillosa persona que conoci em ese lugar. Dueña de una paz y armonia increible, siempre diapuesta a ayudarnos y haciendonos sentir en nuestra casa, y todos los dias despertandomos con un desayuno increible. Noemi, es la dueña de este maravilloso lugar, y junto a su hermosa Bubba, una tierna y respetuosa perrita labrador, les daran y brindaran uma calida estadia por el tiempo que se necesite. OBRIGADA POR TUDO O QUE VC ENSENHO NOEMI. CARINHOS

  • Noemi is the perfect host. We felt like family during our stay at her lovely apartment. The place is extremely clean and comfortable, and Noemi (and her adorable dog) were a delight to be around! Noemi told us everything we wanted to know about Rio, and even provided maps. Having access to her kitchen and laundry facility were an added bonus, as well as the breakfast spread of coffee, toasts, cereals and fresh fruits.

    After staying for a few nights in Copacabana, we very much enjoyed the peaceful and clean atmosphere of Botafogo, and would select this neighborhood to stay again. It's very central and easy to access places from public transportation. The building was serene and felt safe, especially since there was a doorman. I would highly recommend staying with Noemi!

  • Noemi is an amazing host in an amazing city. My partner and I stayed with her for four nights over New Year's Eve. She couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. She made a booking at a restaurant for us on NYE, bought tickets to the Nutcracker at the beautiful theatre in Rio (recommended), and even lent me some heels to wear to the ballet! The breakfast she provides is great (I love the fresh fruit). She also gave us maps, metro cards and general advice on getting around. Invaluable.

    Noemi is kind and great to talk to but not intrusive. Her apartment is ideal and it really helps to have air conditioning in your room in summer in Rio. Botafogo is a really good spot - a welcome haven from the tourist areas of Copa and Ipanema but really close to everything worth seeing. Noemi's place is really close to the metro which is really convenient.

    I would recommend Noemi and her apartment to anyone travelling to Rio!
