Hi! I have a lovely comfortable Bedroom with private Bathroom on the top floor of my apartment that will give you total privacy. It has a double bed, air conditioning, ceiling fan, internet and a lovely view to the woods. The apartment is near the beach (botafogo bay) and all the facilities, like malls (2) and cinemas (16).
Botafogo and Flamengo beach are famous for its parks and gardens made by Burle Marx, a great place for walk and jogging with a wonderful view of the Sugar Loaf. But the best thing about my place is the location. Half way to all the main attractions that you may want to go. 10 minutes to the Sugar Loaf (a 20min. walking that I highly recommend); 15 min. to the lift that brings you up to the "Christ the Redeemer"; 10 min. to Copacabana Beach or 20 to Ipanema and 15 min. to Downtown-Lapa.
I'm a separated 51 years old Graphic Designer and have a girlfriend that usually spends the weekends with me. A healthy breakfast is provided. You can have it with me or you can help yourself from the fridge. The kitchen is fully equipped and you are free to use it. Still want more? OK, I can lend you my bike once in a while, but please don't ask for my surfboard!
See you in Rio! Cheers.
Luiz is the perfect host.....warm, friendly and fun. He takes time to get to know you and makes a huge effort to make you feel at home. His apartment is beautiful and his attention to detail shows his kind and caring personality......a really great guy.
Luiz was a wonderful host. He provided us with great tips which definitely made our stay in Rio so memorable. He made us breakfast each morning, gave us directions to key attractions and booked us a taxi to the airport. The room was great and we would highly recommend staying at Luiz's place.
The stay with Luiz was Superb!
At first sight of his cozy home, "In my fiancés own words" It is AMAZING!! Then added with the unique personality of this host, the experience was Grand. The accommodation's and the breakfast was over the TOP!
In my opinion, the things that Rio was Lacking, Luiz made up for with his professional service as a Bed and Breakfast host.
If possible, at all request of his service, he was there to provide what ever was needed. He even made a special trip to the pharmacy to obtain a much needed medicine for me, and then to add his on potion which brought me back to life :) ...
Your search for a room in the city of Rio De Janeiro.... Stops here... Perfect setting for someone single or a couple, the location was convenient and very safe.
Luiz made you feel totally comfortable as if you were at your own home.. unforgettable experience !!... Thanks a million!!
We had a wonderful stay in the appartment of Luiz. A very clean room with airconditioning and a big bathroom for own use. We also could enjoy a fresh breakfast every morning which was great. The location is also ideal! A short walk to the metro station and also in the middle of the major sights (Lapa/Centro, sugarloaf mountain, cristo redentor, copocabana/ipanema beaches). Luiz is a very friendly host, easygoing, and was always there to provide us with any information we needed. We would definitely recommend this place!!
Excelente estadía y atención en casa de Luiz! Es muy agradable tomar desayuno con Luiz y Carla, siempre tiene disposición a ayudar y mostrar la ciudad. Es un gran amigo! y muy buena persona.
El cuarto es muy agradable y como, al igual que el baño.
De seguro volveré nuevamente a Rio y visitaré la casa de mi amigo Luiz.
Luiz was auch a wonderful host! We really felt welcome in his nice apartment.
The very clean room has its own bathroom, which is really good. You have your own privacy, but also can have a lovely made breakfast with him and talk abou Rio, places to go and other things... He helped us out a lot. Thanks Luiz!
Botafogo is also a nice and safe area, with some good bars and restaurants.
We can highly recommend to stay at Luiz'.
My friend and me stayed at Luiz place for two weeks while we where working on some news stories. He is an amazing and loving host and the apartment is great. A nice private bedroom and a bathroom just next door. Luiz made us breakfast everyday, told us a lot about Brazil, and help us with our stories. He is a chill man with the best smile and the greatest personality. Botafogo is a very good area to stay, short distance with the subway to everything and a lot of bars and restaurants, a mall and grocery stores. We can warmly recommended Luiz, and would love to come back.
Super recomendable la experiencia en la casa de Luiz. Es un anfitrión muy atento, cálido, que de a poco se va transformando en un amigo. El departamento está perfectamente ubicado, es muy cómodo, y resulta fácil moverse hacia el resto de la ciudad, tanto para ir a las playas (Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblón) como para ir al centro de río, Lapa y Santa teresa. La convivencia con Luiz es placentera, con mucha independencia. Volveremos sin duda cuando volvamos a visitar la ciudad!! Gracias Luiz!!
Luiz was such a good hoster! and he was there for me whan i was in trouble during the trip!!!! hope to see you very soon if someday you go back in paris , let me know you ll be more than welcome !!!!
Hola! la verdad que todo lo que decía acerca de Luiz es verdad, es una persona muy macanuda un gran anfitrión y por cierto su lasaña es muy rica, con respecto al alojamiento les comento que es muy cómoda la habitación, tiene Internet y un baño separado solo para el turista ya que el departamento tiene 3 baños y se van a sentir muy cómodos en su privacidad si es lo que prefieren. Hablar con Luiz da gusto ya que entiende el castellano (idioma que gusta) y siempre esta dispuesto a seguir aprendiendo. Además tengan en cuenta que es una zona segura ya que el edificio tiene seguridad y el barrio de Botafogo también esta en una zona segura y es nexo para la zona de las playas muy cercanas como ser Copacabana e Ipanema como también de la zona Norte como ser Largo de Machado, Cinelandia, etc lugares que hay que conocer ya sea tanto como para ir a ver el Cristo como para ir al barrio de Santa Teresa y otros puntos de interés. 100 % recomendable !!!
