About This Listing
There is a bedroom available in a 3 bed 3 bath apartment.
The bedroom has a bunk bed, en suite bathroom and storage space. The flat is newly renovated with a modern kitchen, bathrooms and living room. It is spacious on the top floor of a two block building with great views of Morro Chapeu Mangueira.
I also have another room which can be seen here
Leme is a great, quiet and safe location in Rio at walking distance from Copacabana beach and with great transport connections; buses and links to Rio´s metro system. There are great bars and restaurants in the area with good food and the traditional beer.
Sugar loaf mountain is around the corner, and as Leme is the end of the Atlantic Av there´s amazing views of Copacabana and even the Christ Redeemer.
The flat is located on the second line from the beach so access to the beach is quick and safe.
If you already know or want to explore Rio, Leme is the perfect location as it has peace and tranquility as well as the necessary access links to the whole of Rio.
No outside guests.
As this is a quiet building no noise in the elevators or coming in and out of the building. No smoking and no pets. General tidiness specially in the kitcken and in the bathrooms.. No towels, crockery or any other items to be taken out of the flat.
I had a wonderful time. The room is small but it has a wardrobe to put your clothes and shelves to place your things, and having your private bathroom right there is very comfortable.
The area is very nice and you have the beach just one block away and everything you need around. And buses and subway a few blocks away.
Jorge was travelling but his mother Maria took care of every detail. She is a very nice and interesting woman who helped me in everything I needed and we had nice chats.
I truly recommend it.
Lo pasé genial. La habitación es pequeña pero tiene un placard para la ropa y estantes para poner tus cosas, y tener tu baño privado justo al lado es muy cómodo.
El área es muy linda y la playa esta a una cuadra y todo lo que necesites alrededor. Los colectivos y el subte a pocas cuadras.
Jorge estaba de viaje pero su madre María cuido de todos los detalles y es una mujer muy agradable e interesante que me ayudó en todo lo que necesitaba y tuvimos lindas charlas también.
Lo recomiendo sinceramente.
Fui muito bem recebido por D. Maria que, muito simpática, me mostrou o apartamento e me deixou muito a vontade. O quarto é bem pequeno, mas tudo estava limpo e organizado. O local tem ótima localização.
Me and a friend of mine had an excellent time with Jorge in Rio.
The apartment lies in Leme, a largely residential zone at the end of Copacabana that is more quiet than the rest of the (otherwise busy/highly touristy) beach. The room and bathroom are small but nice and tidy. The lounge has everything you need.
The hospitality could hardly have been much better. Jorge is an engaging and open host who showed us around in Leme and helped us understand the Carioca culture. He'll help with problems that may arise and offers valuable guidance as to where to go and what to do. His Caipirinhas were easily the best we tried in Rio (we stayed for 17 days). His mother is extremely kind: she made breakfast, coffee and washed our clothes.
All in all, a very positive experience.
The room is small but clean and has its own bathroom. The location is 1 block away from lemme beach. We went there during world cup and the location is just 10 minutes away from the fanfest in copacabana. Jorge even brought us to a favela. It was a good a experience.
Great location on a quiet street - close to the beach, food, buses, etc. Very convenient
We had a great stay at Jorge! The apartment is perfectly located in a quiet neighborhood and only 5 minutes walking from the Copacabana beach. There is 24 hr security at the building entrance so no need to feel unsafe. The room itself is small, but that's not a problem, since when in Rio you should go out and do stuff! And besides, you can make use of the shared living room.
Jorge is a great host, laid back, flexible and positive, and does everything in his possibilities to make you feel at home. He checks regularly if everything is okay and on top of that, he makes great Caipirinhas!
If you're looking for a cool affordable place to stay in Rio for a couple of days, you should definitely consider booking a room at Jorge's.
No fue una muy buena experiencia, independientemente de cómo sea Jorge no me parece óptimo el sistema de convivencia que impone airbnb, el apartamento es agradable pero no es adecuado para compartir con varias personas. Sin ánimo de ofender, uno se mete en la casa de otro, con la otra persona conviviendo con uno, y con otros huéspedes más. Pasé dos noches solamente, pagué por ocho (U$S 500) y Jorge me dijo: Quedate tranquilo amigo Mario te voy a devolver el dinero. En cuanto lo reciba se los comunicaré a ustedes y cambiaré mi opinión sobre airbnb y sus anfitriones.
Not a very good experience, regardless of how it is Jorge does not seem optimal coexistence system, the apartment is nice but not suitable for sharing with several persons. No offense, self gets into the house of another person, the other person cohabiting, and other guests. I spent two nights only. Jorge told me stay calm Mario I'll return the money. Upon receiving the money, I will contact you and'll change my opinion on airbnb and their hosts.

I am an outspoken and happy individual. My professonal experience has taken me to different parts of the world. I enjoy meeting people and building new relationships. My understanding of hosting is not only to provide accomodation but also being able to share my local knowlegde and experiences with my guests.
Sou uma pessoa alegre e interessada. A minha experiencia professional levou-me a trabalhar em varias partes do mundo. Gosto de conhecer gente e de criar novas relações. No meu entendimento ser anfitrião é não só acomodar, mas também partilhar o meu conhecimento e experiencias locais com os meus hóspedes.
