  • Leo was the best host ever!!!!! He was super friendly and helped a lot with what to see, eat etc. in the city!
    The place is super nice, and the district is located perfectly -not so touristic, so the food is good and cheaper, and near all the main places (beaches, Sugar loaf, Christ statue).
    Leo also made us great company! If I ever go to Rio again, that would be his place for sure!

  • My husband and I stayed only one night and got to the apartment around 10:30pm or so and so we didn't get to explore much but Leo and his partner were kind enough to go out to dinner with us down the street and had a lot of fun! They are super fun people and very bright. As far as the area goes, I thought it was nice and close to the Botafogo bay. It's close to bus routes also and I like that there are a lot of restaurants and a market nearby. As far as the room goes, it is quite tiny and the bunk beds are not the most comfortable as the mattress is very thin. Nevertheless the apartment is super cute and tidy. Loved the decor and size of the apartment. Overall a good time.

  • I had a great vacation experience during my first visit in Rio, and it wouldn't have been as such without Leo's invaluable help and tips for places to see and walk around. Also, his place is very accommodating and comfortable for a solo traveler, not to mention the convenience of the location which is central to most points of interest in Zona Zul (South Zone.)

    If you're an avid adventurer and looking for a creative space to come and relax in the evening after a long day of walking and touristing, this is your best bet.

    Looking forward to reunite with Leo in the future!

  • Leo was a wonderful, welcoming, and helpful host! He had a beautiful apartment, was an extremely talented artist, and helped us with getting around Rio. I would recommend him to anyone! We had a perfect soundtrack for our short stay in Rio, we hope to return for sunny days and more chances to explore : ) Thank you so much Leo!

    it was everything a pleasure for me.

  • El departamento esta perfectamente ubicado. Con muchisimas maneras de llegar a el. cerca tiene todo tipo de establecimientos para comprar, comer, beber y conocer muchas cosas. Dentro es tal cual se exhibe en las fotografias, solo el cuarto es un poco pequeño, al igual que el baño, pero suficientes si tienes plan de conocer la ciudad y solo llegar a descansar.

    Leo es un muy buen anfitrion, siempre con ganas de ayudarte y con muchos planes para compartir. Excelente estancia!

  • Very well located. Leo is an interesting person.

  • I stayed 7 nights at Leo's place and he was the best host I could have wished. I had a perfect holidays in this splendid city. Public transport is very near (bus/metro), beach in some minutes and all sights and neighourhoods within few time reachable. Leo is an educated, symphatic and interesting person who took me into sights of Rio which I otherwise wouldn't have done, thanks for this, you became a real friend!
    His place is very comfortable and with touches of his artistic skills and I felt really home:-)
    His neighbourhood is very safe and pleasant to go around and a supermarket as neighbour is upmost practical.

    I really recommend his place and his hospitality and sharing the nice talks and moments with him!

    I will definitely come back to Rio and this Carioca:-)

  • Leo es un joven culto y educado, un brillante artista, un excelente periodista, pero sobre todo una GRAN PERSONA, que en consecuencia lo convierte en un anfitrión espectacular.
    Estuve 10 días como huésped y tuvimos ocasión de compartir experiencias, muy enriquecedoras. Ya que a pesar de su juventud, tiene mucha experiencia de vida. Inicio de una gran amistad.
    La ubicación de su apartamento es privilegiada, una de las mejores de Rio de Janeiro (Botafogo), al salir de la casa, llegando a la esquina (a menos de cincuenta metros) puedes ver mirando arriba y a la derecha al Cristo Redentor, en la cima del Corcovado y a la izquierda la Playa de Botafogo.
    A muy poca distancia de los puntos turísticos (Centro de la ciudad, Urca y Pan de Azúcar, las playas de Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon) con todo cerca y muchos medios de transporte, autobuses, metro, taxis o simplemente caminando.
    Supermercado al lado, farmacias a una cuadra, Botafogo Praia Shopping a tres cuadras, una plaza pequeña y tranquila a media cuadra.
    Un barrio calmo, pero con mucha actividad de día y de noche(a diferencia de otros hormigueros de gente de día y cementerios de noche) por los restaurantes, la Facultad Integrada Hélio Alonso (FACHA) y la Fundación Getúlio Vargas.
    Por las noches me sentaba a la vera del mar, mirando al morro de Urca y el Pan de Azúcar. Un lugar paradisiaco, en la bellísima ensenada de Botafogo con los yates anclados frente al Yacht Club de Rio de Janeiro, totalmente iluminados. Otras veces iba en taxi a Copacabana o playas más alejadas, aunque se usara tarifa 2 por ser de noche, los viajes eran muy baratos por la cercanía.
    La pequeña habitación, es ampliamente compensada por la gran sala de estar donde hay una biblioteca con obras muy interesantes, opción válida para días de temporales (como los dos que viví). Un apartamento muy bien decorado y ambientado de acuerdo a la personalidad del dueño. Se percibe una gran paz en toda la casa. Potenciada por el sahumerio, que es encendido previa consulta con el huésped.
    El departamento está impecablemente limpio y ordenado. Todas las comodidades disponibles. El personal del edificio, los porteros y el de seguridad con un trato excepcional.
    Todo lo que está descrito en la página, es exacto, incluida la opinión de sus huéspedes.
    Teniendo muchas opciones, escogí esta, yo sabía lo que quería, pero no esperaba una estadía tan agradable, en casa ajena. Me sentí tan a gusto, como si fuera mi propia casa, cosa poco frecuente en mí.

    Mi mejor estadía en Rio en mucho tiempo. Para quienes lean esto les cuento, que nací en allá, viví de pequeño, luego de adulto realicé cursos y frecuentemente visito Rio.

    Un anfitrión generoso, amable, correcto y muy servicial.
    MI CONSEJO, si pueden vayan a lo de Leo, tengo la seguridad que volverán satisfechos.
    Yo estoy con deseos de volver…
    Gracias Leo, por compartir y hacer tan placentera mi visita a Rio de Janeiro.
