The Space


Beautiful apartment in Rio de Janeiro downtown. 5 minutes from "Arcos da Lapa" and 15 minutes walking to the "Sambadromo".
Located in a region of intense nightlife, there are plenty of bars with live Brazilian music every day. Close to theaters, cultural centers, beaches, public transport and airport. Easy access to all the tourist attractions of this beautiful city!

The building is located in the best part of Lapa. Next to the world-famous "Rio Scenarium, Lapa 40" and several other great bars to dance and listen to live music. The neighborhood has many street parties and events all year round. You will still be a few steps from the sights "Arcos da Lapa" and "Selaron Steps".

There are plenty of restaurants, bars, cafes, shopping and is just a 10 minute walk to the metro station Carioca, which will take you to all the wonderful points of Rio such as Copacabana and Ipanema.

Public transport is just in front of the building and work 12:0 am a day.
Lapa is the heart of the river-the busiest area of the city.

Our apartment is bright and welcoming. All amenities for a pleasant stay. Guests can enjoy a ventilated room with a very comfortable double bed, ceiling fan and a space in the wardrobe.

We offer bed linens, bath towel and a bathroom with hot shower. Living room with cable TV, sofa and dining table. The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge, stove, microwave, utensils and laundry area with washing machine. As we don't serve breakfast, guests are free to use the kitchen and prepare the coffee that we are available to you.

Wireless Internet is free and guests can use our computer, if necessary.

Perfect for those who come to Rio for business or pleasure.
Comfort and Safety.

  • Staying at Adriana's place in Rio was the best decision we made while travelling in Brasil. She is one of the most warmhearted, lovely and funny people I've ever met and she totally made our stay an unforgettable expereience. Although we didn't speak much Portuguese, she always made sure that someone was around to help our communication. She introduced us to her friends, brought us into her life and made us feel like cariocas for a few days. I will never forget the AMAZING foods, laughs and times we had and for that all I can say is Obrigada Adriana and I can't wait to see you again! And her appartement is beautiful in a fabulous location. If you are lucky enough to stay with her, don't miss out on the chance!

  • My boyfriend and I stayed with Adriana and Alexandre for 3 nights. They were beyond welcoming and kind! The apartment building was safe and in a great location. It was about a 5 minute walk to the Arcos da Lapa and Selaron steps as well as lots of bars and restaurants. Adriana was so accommodating. She answered all of our questions, helped us get on a local bus, and provided us with some delicious meals! This was my first time visiting Brazil and my first time using Airbnb and it was a great experience. I would highly recommend booking with Adriana and Alexandre!

  • Adriana was the friendliest host we have ever met. (Together with her son) she hosts a house in the middle of Lapa. Everything really safe and only two blocks away from all the great things Lapa has to offer.
    She really took care of us and gave valuable advices. At our good bye, she even brought us to to the street to find a taxi.
    Don't doubt whenever you wanna stay in Lapa, just book Adriana's place. I ll do the same when i ll return to rio one day..

  • We had a great time during our stay at Adriana & Alexander! We felt more than welcome and after a couple of days it seemed like coming home. The cozy apartment is situated in a secure building, in the middle of the Centre and with a 10 minute walk or less you find yourself in Lapa!
    Even the famous stairs - Escaderia Saleron - are very nearby.
    Adriana & Alexander are excellent hosts and can tell you a lot about Brazil: sightseeing, culture, history and art.
    We stayed there during Carnaval and they invited us to come and visit a blockparty, called a "bloko" with many local people dressed in Carnaval costumes.

    Adriana & Alexander took good care of us and we would recommend them to everyone who wants to have a warm and pleasant stay when you visit Rio de Janeiro!

    OBRIGADO for everything, we are very glad that we have met such wonderful people!

  • Adriana and Alexandre couldn't be more friendly and helpful. Staying with them is so fun and their local knowledge helped us get the most out of our short stay. The bedroom is very comfortable and a great jumping off point for exploring Rio. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again when we are next in Rio.

  • I've been to Rio with my fiancée for the first time for one week including Carnaval period. The summary could only be A-Ma-Zing...and thanks to Adriana!
    As a general info about her flat & room:
    Her flat is in a very safe area, in the center and close to all practical things that you may need: bus, metro, supermarket...and walking distance to the heart of the city for a visit.
    The room is very comfortable and Adriana pays attention to the cleanliness.
    Apart from all above, Adriana herself is adorable, very welcoming,open and careful to the comfort of her hosts. She is available for answering to all questions about the city and practical informations.
    I think from now on, if someone tells me that he/she is going to Rio, I would recommend Adriana's flat. That's what we will do next time: stay in our new friend's house.
