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 a 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 bedding and towels for your comfort. For the price I offer you a big "brazilian" breakfast.

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

I share the space with pleasure, I'm very easy going and helpfull. I'll give you a breakfast of a king. Be welcome!
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!
Noemi es adorable y su apartamento lindisimo. Siempre estuvo impecable, cuenta con todo lo necesario y la ubicacion es excelente. Una zona muy segura y muy linda. Me senti como en mi propia casa. Muy recomendable
Noemi was a polite and very friendly host. The guesthouse was in a very good neighbourhood in Botafogo. Noemi has a lovely dog - and it was fun to get to know both. we can recommend the location and wish all the best to Noemi.

Noemi's house is well located between the two main attractions in Rio, namely the Christo and Sugar Loaf and not far from the famous beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema. Everything is within a few bus or subway stops from the house. The vicinity is also quite safe.
Although very busy, Noemi took time to give us a good orientation and directions to the various sites of interest and even lent us the subway cashcards to use as well as useful maps.
We had a nice comfortable room and an ample breakfast. Nothing more to be wished for, especially with such an outgoing and friendly host.
Thanks Noemi. We unreservedly recommend your place to others and are so glad our niece had recommended you to us.

We spent several tranquil days in Rio, thanks to our wonderful hostess Noemi. She was out for the day when we arrived, but left the key with the doorman who was expecting us. And, Bubba was there to meet us as well, an older, very mellow black lab who we adored.
The guest room is adequate in size for two people, and Noemi lets guests use her main bathroom as well as the washing machine (the clothes dryer is the line in the back room). Breakfast was always ready with plenty of food and fruit for any taste. Plus, she shared her coffeepot as well so we never lacked for all forms of sustenance!
The only issue that cropped up was the water heater for the shower, which occasionally left us with only cold water. Since the device was less than a week old, it should have been better behaved, but we all figured out its idiosyncrasies and eventually had very hot showers from then on!
Thank you Noemi for the wonderful stay!
We had a nice stay in rio. The apartment is close to the subway and a lovely bakery across the road. The place was clean especially the bathroom. The kitchen and laundry were handy and accessible. Bupa the dog was gorgeous and very quiet. Unfortunately the hot water stopped working during our stay resulting in several cold showers. Noemi was apologetic, and was trying to get it fixed however nothing was fixed before we left. Noemi was nice, very busy, we hardly saw her. She is very eccentric and treats guests more as friends then customers which can be both good and bad! We had a good 5 days in rio!
Rio es una ciudad maravillosa! Y la experiencia con Noemi fue realmente espectacular, toda mi estancia la disfruté al máximo, el cariño, amabilidad, educación, consejos y amistad de Noemi me hicieron sentir en casa y sentir la vida carioca de una forma incomparable, me enamoré de Rio de Janeiro y su vibra, verdaderamente uno de los mejores viajes que he realizado. Espero poder regresar pronto y visitar a mi maravillosa amiga Noemi y su preciosa perra Buba.
oh! Gracias, Alejandro, muchas gracias! My amigo, fue muy bueno su amistad!!!

Espero tornar a encontrá-lo o mais brevemente possível, e manter sempre nosso contato amigo! Me gusta mucho su amistad!!! besos
