In the heart of Ipanema,
Noble neighborhood of Rio, point of Bossa Nova, where " Girl from Ipanema " from Tom Jobin walked on!
- Second block from the famous Ipanema beach ( 100 m ),
- Beside the pleasement Our Lady of Peace Square.
Definitely the best point of Ipanema:
- quiet, airy ,
- high floor.
Great place to walk, take sea bath and sun bath, cycling and do outdoor sports (among the favorite activities are surfing the skiboard, racquetball, volleyball, soccer, footvolley).
Beside the best:
- nightclubs in the city!
Close to subway and bus and cab at door.
Arround the place you can find:
- pharmacies and all kinds of trade that you need to have a peaceful stay.
- TV ,
- air conditioning,
- ceiling fan,
- kitchen with sink,
- stove and refrigerator.
Suite with double bed ( linen included ). Gay Friendly.

Me and my friend arrived in Rio the first day of the carnival and as we loved every single minute of the trip! I suggest to visit RIO to everyone!
About the accomodation, the whole city seem to lack of places to stay, hotels, B&B. So you better book in advance in occasion of big events.
The greatest advantage of this apartment is the location.
It is extremely convenient to walk to the beach side, to get taxis, it is in a safe area, close to bakeries, juice shops, restaurants... all minutes away on foot.
The apartment is very quiet, also during carnival where it was party and noise everywhere on the streets.
One bad note is that the furniture is pretty old and bathroom and kitchen should be renovated to give a more appealing look at the apartment, same as some electric sockets. Some new towels would make a difference as well.
Security downstairs is very friendly and always there.. So we didn't feel in any danger while we were staying.
Having internet connection in the apartment would have been a big plus... since using 3G networks in Rio with mobile phone is a nightmare... But we didn't realized before we arrived so, nothing to do.
Overall our holidays was great and, for what we used the apartment (sleeping at night only) it was a good choice.
Pricewise it was a better rate compared to many others we checked at that time.
Luis is a good, reliable person. Great location!
MELHOR ESTADIA !! THE APARTMENT IS AN AWESOME AND COMFORTABLE PLACE - LUZ IS THE BEST HOST EVER!! THANKS FOR THE UNFORGATTABLE WEEKEND =)
