Nice cozy apartment with a large family room and an excelent bedroom, all the rooms with an amazing view to Sugar Loaf.
It was just remodeled, completely furnished, it has a nice kitchen, laundryroom, air conditioner, TV and a hameck to relax and appreciate the view. It's close to Botafogo Praia Shopping where you can find excelent restaurants, shopping and movie theaters.
On Sundays, Aterro do Flamengo, (a 5 minutes walk) closes the streets so people can walk, bike and have a good time. Only a few blocks from the subway and a few stations from Downtown, where you have museums and other attractions, and also a few stations from Ipanema, Leblon and Copacabana beach.
If a couple with children under 12 years, I can leave the value of the guest extra $ 50.
An excellent place to enjoy wonderful days in Rio de Janeiro.
Host was very welcoming. We had a late arrival and due to traffic we arrived later than stated but Camille waited around showed us the apartment. The apartment itself was as described! Absolutely luved out stay - spacious for three people, amenities needed there and the view was simply gorgeous. The area it self is convenient. When we come back next year will definitely stay here again! ☺️
I will break this review into three items - the unit, location, and assistance.
The view is amazing, the unit is very spacious, the bed is comfortable, the AC works great, and all appliances work well - it has everything you will need (pots, pans, glasses, silverware, etc.).
The noisy traffic outside did not bother specially after closing the windows.
The location is great, just outside the entrance there are two juice bars and a "padaria" (deli). It's also close to banks and a 3-minute walk to the Botafogo Praia Shopping.
It's about a 5-10 minute walk to the subway, there is a bus stop nearby, and there are cabs driving by all the time (to get an idea there are 33,000+ cabs in Rio which is more than twice the number of cabs in NYC).
I had a few questions while I was there and Ana always responded promptly and ready to help. Laura (the assistant that met with us to turn in the keys) was very nice and always on time - for getting us the key she was in the apartment at least 30 minutes earlier, and to turn in the apartment she was 10 minutes early.
Overall, I strongly recommend to anyone that wants to visit Rio!
Ótimo apartamento. Bem localizado, boas acomodações, limpo e atendimento muito receptivo. A vista merece um comentário à parte, pois é realmente uma das mais bonitas do Rio de Janeiro. Super indico.
Exceptional flat with an incredible view over the famous "Pão de Açúcar". Very bright and clean . A nice vintage deck chair, from which you see only the Pao de Acucar. Aircondition works very well.
What a pity you cannot swim in the sea from the nice Botofago beach in front of the house, which is poluted and that you have to take a bus or taxi to go to Cocapabana.
Food shop is a little too far (15mn walk), even for bying a bottle of water. Very few restaurants in the aera. Nevertheless a very nice place to spend a few days.
Ana Amelia`s apartment was really great. The view is even better than the photos. Flat is very clean and tidy. When we arrived Ana Amelia and Lara greeted us with a generous welcome. Everthing was ready in the aparment for us to stay in comfort. The location was great. Very easy to reach by public transportation. Close to Lapa and Beaches as well. Don`t think twice this apartment is simply great and will meet your expectation in every aspects. Thanks Ana and Lara.
Um belo apartamento, bem localizado, simples, funcional e confortável. A vista é deslumbrante até com o céu encoberto. Espero voltar em breve. Recomendo, com certeza.
Arrived at the apartment and greeted by the lovely Ana and her assistant Lara. Beautiful view took our breath away. Clean and spacious with everything needed for your stay. Super shower and plenty of storage space. Comfy bed and great air con. Yes there is traffic noise but ear plugs did the job and we got used to it after a few days. Ideal position for the metro and buses, but taxi rides really cheap so used those at night for safety. Shopping mall close by and great restaurants. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment.
