Noemi is an amazing host. My wife and I had a wonderful half-month stay with her while we were having a trip in different places in Brazil. Our stay in Rio was one of the greatest experiences thanks to Noemi's great hospitality.
Her apartment is nice and clean and ideally located in a very safe middle-class residential area, just a few steps to the supermarket, hundreds of yards to the metro station and 10 minutes walk to the Botafogo Bay. There are some nice restaurant around serving wide range of wonderful Brazilian cuisine, from the lavish Brazil barbecue to budget kilo meals. The walk to the Sugar Loaf on a sunny Sunday morning is a pleasant experience.
She gave us metro cards, maps, umbrellas, dozens of tourist brochures, and a lot of advices on where to go and see when we just arrived. She was very considerate, provided nice breakfast everyday and allowed us to cook, which made us feel like home. We got TV in the room with numerous channels in English. The Wifi is very fast and stable. Her lovely dog, Buba, is also a gem, very quiet and super nice to visitors.
Noemi also managed to talk with us out of her busy schedule about Brazil, the people and the culture. It is very helpful for us to have a deeper understanding of the country in a considerably short period of time.
Plus, We forgot some of our stuff when we left. Noemi was so kind to post them to us. Thank you very much!
Noemi is one of the most upbeat and energetic people I have met. Straight away as we entered we were greeted with a table set with all sorts of breakfast goodies so we knew it was going to be a great stay. The location was really great and her house is lovely. But most of all it was Noemi's personality and hospitality that made my friend and I end up staying with her again later in our trip.
My son and I spent a couple of days at Noemi's place for the World Cup final. Her place is very charming, clean and well located. Her description is accurate.
Naomi treated us like family, was very warm to us, and super attentive.
Noemi es una persona muy amable y el departamento es lindo, ordenado, limpio y cerca a los principales lugares turísticos de Río de Janeiro.
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 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 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.
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.
