Bob no estuvo en rio mientras estuvimos ahi asi que no lo conocimos, pero nos recibio otra persona y todo bien. El unico inconveniente con el departamento fueron unos cortes de agua, que no molesto tanto porque casi ni estabamos en el depto, pero bob estaba al tanto y nos podria haber avisado de antemano.
This is as central as you can get on Copacabana, and really nice view. Awesome terrace with a pool and nice neighbours.
We arrived very late one evening in the middle of easter, and the hosts friend received us and gave us a tour. We were lucky to meet the host later on, and he is a nice guy with lots of local information.
The place were also nice on the budget, and even my picky girlfriend found the room to be good.
A big plus for the huge tv and good internet connection when the rain outside were pouring down!
A experiência não foi tão agradável quanto o esperado.
Logo no momento da chegada tivemos que esperar mais de duas horas pela chegada da pessoa que nos entregaria as chaves.
No mesmo dia da chegada solicitamos uma toalha já que, por incrível que pareça, só tinha uma toalha. Não fomos atendidos e tivemos que passar 4 dias dividindo a toalha, o que foi muuuito desagradável. Por fim, a cama é instável, balança e faz muito barulho com o mínimo movimento, o que praticamente me impossibilitou de dormir. Enfim, não pretendemos voltar!
Bob was friendly and accommodated us with a late checkout. He also was attentive and sent someone over to fix things when the water went out.
Unit: small, basic and clean (enough). Includes fan and air conditioner. We didn't use the TV. Wifi worked well.
Location: extremely convenient to shops, restaurants, ATMS and the beach.
Overall: if you just need a place to crash and will be out most of the day - I'd recommend this place. It's reasonable in terms of price, has an amazing location and Bob actually responds to emails.
Initially, my girlfriend and I were disapointed in this listing. It seemed dirtier than the pictures and descriptions implied, and we assumed that there would be more privacy. The suite is on the top floor of an apartment building, and is a single apartment broken down into 5 separate suites, all behind a single security door. The patio pool and grill is shared by 7 suits, including the owner, accessed by a separate door and private stairway. It, again, is a tad dilapidated, the equipment is stained and rusted and sunburnt (it is open to the elements year round). It almost seems like the pictures for this apartment were taken several years ago; the paint is yellowed and the tile is stained in places. My girlfriend had to wash the bathroom, kitchenette, and the dishes before we felt confortable using them, and we bought new towels and sheets. The wardrobe furniture was not close to what was pictured. It was old, an ugly brown, the doors were crooked, and the bar for hanging clothes was broken and sagged at one side. The whole thing shook every time I opened the door.
We were warned that the room got very hot during the day, but with the blinds closed and the fan & AC running, it stayed cool and comfortable, enough for this Canadian. The location is perfect: one block from Copacabana beach, on a busy, safe street, and there are several very nice restaurants, shops, and supermarkets just outside the front door. The security and staff of the building are quite kind, often opening the door and greeting us. It's right on major bus lines that go down to Ipanema and up to the center of the city, and there is a metro station two or three blocks from the door which was convenient. The wifi is free, and was always fast and consistent.
Twice during out stay, the water to our suite cut out completely, both hot and cold, both times when we were about to take a shower. No running water at all. We texted the owner both times, and when we returned several hours later it was running again, but this was uncomfortable and unacceptable.
Really, the nice parts about the location could be found at several places around Copacabana and Ipanema. I think Copacabana is just an older area, the buildings especially. If you can, spend a few more bucks a night and stay near Ipanema, the area is newer, the beach is much nicer, and the streets are better kept, never felt anxious walking at night.
A localização do ap facilita bastante o acesso de ônibus à maioria dos principais pontos turísticos e tbm mercados e restaurantes. O anfitrião foi gentil ao permitir check in e check out antes e depois dos horários normais e resolveu o problema da wi-fi no 1o dia. O ap tem alguma louça, boa geladeira e fogão de indução funciona bem, a cama é confortável. A avenida é bem movimentada o tempo todo, então tem bastante barulho, mesmo a noite. O ar-condicionado faz bastante ruído também. O banheiro não tem janela e durante o tempo que estávamos lá, tinha um cheiro muito ruim que vinha do ralo. Formigas também foram um problema, é melhor não deixar doces fora da geladeira. Espero ter contribuído um pouco na tomada de decisão dos turistas e que o Bob continue gentil e melhorando alguns detalhes... Sobre o AirBnb, fiquem atentos ao Dólar, pois o valor debitado na fatura será nesta moeda.
Apartment was great, excellent location, clean, great air con, large shower, great view ( could see Corcovado from my bed ). Bobby was excellent and let me check out late which was kind of him. I had a magical four days here. Thoroughly recommend it.
