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.
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.
Meu noivo e eu tivemos uma agradável estadia durante dois dias na época do Rock in Rio 2013. Um quarto simples, com beliche, limpo, organizado, com ventilador. Jorge foi simpático e prestativo. Recomendo.
This is a very nice and clean apartment, ideally located in a beautiful part of Rio. The room and bathroom are a bit small but still perfect for one person - there is so much to do in the city anyway one is not likely to spend much time indoors. Jorge makes all the difference as he really is a great host - friendly, funny, and helpful, my stay with him was great. I'd highly recommend this place.
Making a decision one should be aware of the fact that the room and bath are tiny. But as for me these issues are not of great value. Rio was the starting point of my travel to South America and the start appeared to be very lucky due mainly to my host and his mother who are really friendly, hospital and helpful people. Jorge spent a lot of time .guiding me around,explaining the basics of daily life in Brasilia, providing with practical information,arranging my transfers, etc. It was a pleasure to stay at his house. Now I believe I have a new friend in Rio and would be happy to be Jorge´s guest in case I´ll come to Rio again.
The room and apartment in Leme were perfect, located in a quiet yet accessible part of Rio. Jorge and his mother were wonderful, gracious hosts and I couldn't recommend the place more! I was very comfortable, felt safe (as a female traveling alone...), and very much enjoyed my time there.
I stayed at Jorge's for 15 days. Two words: Simply Great!
The appartment is next to everything, and if you need to get somewhere further, transportation is also easy to get with different types of prices. Sugarloaf is right next to you, just 20 mins walk!
At the house it was nice but I would suggest the room only for one person cause it's small and you would have enough place to put yourself and your stuff! Jorge's mother is very nice and very helpfull. The place is clean and if you want to cook , it's gonna be easy all materials are there! Internet was Okay as well.
Overall The placement of the appartment and the appartment itself are Good! In other words I was confortable and I enjoyed.
Great room, perfect location and brill host! Couldn't ask for anything better :)
Jorge and his mother were the perfect hosts. They were kind to let me check in early as my flight arrived early. Jorge gave me clear directions on how to take the airport omnibus to the necessary stop and walking directions to the flat. My room and bathroom were clean, compact and perfect. Jorge's mother did some laundry for me, which was greatly appreciated. She evened ironed my shirts!!!! I would stay again and 100% recommend that you stay there too!
Excelente localização, acesso fácil aos principais pontos turísticos do rio(seja de táxi, metro ou ônibus), ambiente limpo e tranquilo.Jorge e sua mãe foram ótimos anfitriões, nos deixaram super a vontade.Foi perfeito, agradecemos a hospitalidade e com certeza ao voltar para o Rio, ficaremos hospedadas novamente com vocês.Obrigada!
