Response from Jane:

This American guy, Alex, is the first person to have complained about my apartment for as long as I can remember. I'm really sad to read his comments... He obviously didn't research very well before he booked. He seems to have somehow mistaken my apartment for a luxury air-conditioned apartment in Leblon or Barra (which of course would have been twice or three times the price!). He reported to me that he saw 1 cockroach on the bed, which shocked me I have to admit, as this has never happened before. We get the odd little cockroach just like anywhere in Rio, but we get the apartment fumigated regularly. We will of course have it fumigated again now immediately, but I know for a fact that my apartment has very few cockroaches compared to many others. It's kept very clean. And the ceiling fan works just fine by the way! Alex told me that the fan wasn't working well so we went out and bought a new fan for the apartment, then realised that he had it on the 'exhaust' setting (turning the wrong way). So we switched it back to normal and it works perfectly. Now we have 2 fans for the apartment, haha, plus a lovely cross-breeze that comes in through the windows. It's one of the coolest non-air conditioned apartments in Rio! Alex was staying there in the middle of summer at the hottest time, but I never advertised that I had air-con so I don't know why he would think that I would have it? As for the location, it's a BRILLIANT location! 10 minutes walk to the Lapa Arches in a popular little residential pocket of Centro. It's a really well-respected area, sought after by many locals as one of the most convenient places to live. It IS considered a safe part of Centro to live. There is crime in all of Rio but I can honestly say that this is the very first time that I've ever heard of anyone being robbed outside my apartment block. I feel just as safe walking around my suburb than anywhere else in Rio. There are far less assaults here than in Copacabana! Lapa has a fair few assaults but my apartment is away from this part of Lapa. Anyway, I'm sorry that you had such a bad experience in Rio, Alex. Please do a bit more research about which area you want to stay in next time. My apartment is for people on a budget wanting a nice little apartment to stay near all the action of Lapa and convenient to shops, restaurants, bars, public transport etc. It is what it is. You just have to read all the other reviews below to know that everyone else loves this apartment and location and has a great time staying here!

Thanks so much for your review Puck! It was a pleasure having you. That's great feedback about the light... I was thinking about getting a new lamp for the apartment so I will do that. Thanks and all the best! Jane
