Tuvimos una excelente experiencia, llegamos a un apartamento acogedor, con decoracion hermosa, tal cual lo mostraban sus fotos, muy comodo, contaba con todo lo necesario para pasar una agradable estadia. Ademas nos dejaron sabanas, toallas, jabones, agua mineral gelada! tal como si fuera un hotel. Sus dueños, calidos, preocupados, dejan un mapa, indicaciones, consejos, todo muy acogedor. El edificio muy bien ubicado, a pasos de playa Ipanema, frente a supermercado, nosotros que fuimos con bebe fue lo mas ideal para elegir. El edificio es seguro, hay siempre vigilancia. Fue una excelente estadia, anfitriones y apartamento totalmente recomendable.
This was our first experience of using airbnb and slightly anxious that it could be problematic arriving at a private apartment late at night from our flight from London. We shouldn't have worried! The doorman was looking out for our arrival, and called Daniel to meet us. Daniel showed us the apartment and how everything worked, and also arranged our return taxi in advance. Everything we needed was there, and having wifi was really useful. We appreciated having two bathrooms and having towels provided, and all basic consumables e.g. for washing dishes and clothes. The aircon was essential (it was almost 40 degrees outside). There was some noise from the street and from neighbours' aircons at night but that's difficult to avoid in a city. We felt very safe there, and the doormen were friendly and courteous.
The location is superb: Ipanema beach is very close, and there was a big choice of restaurants, cafes and the 24 hour supermarket all on the doorstep (some with special recommendations from Silvia and Daniel). One day we got up at 6.15 and were on Copacabana beach watching the sun rise at 6.30. We were able to get almost everywhere around Rio using Metro or buses starting from the square in front of the apartment. We'd love to visit again and would certainly recommend the apartment to friends.
The apartment is very nice and charming. It's located in the best and safest neighborhood in Rio, which is a very important thing. Close to the best beach and bars. Silvia is a wonderful host and very responsable. The communication was very fluency and quickly. I would definitely come back :-)
Silvia and Daniel's place is excellent location. Extremely clean, practical, great showers, a/c, tv, and doorman service. We were well greated and attended right away when we needed something. Even the towels were super clean and smelled great, haha! Great location if you want to be steps away from Ipanema Beach. Everything you want to have for your beach trip to Rio is here.
Silvia's place is great! Awesome location, just steps away from the beach, grocery store and restaurants. She and Daniel are great hosts, they even graciously accommodated my friend who had different arrival/departure times. The apartment is clean, bright and exactly how described. I would recommend this apartment to anyone staying in Rio.
We had a wonderful time in Ipanema, Silvia was the most gracious host. Always ready to assist, they were very helpful with our arrangements and made the experience a great one.
The location of the flat is fantastic, literally, one block from the beach, and very near a 24 hours supermarket and good restaurants.
Silvia, thanks for everything, next year we hope to be back.!!
on a quiet street of arpoador, the best location in town, you will find anything you need in this place: 24h-doormen, fast internet, cable tv, a well equipped kitchen, 2 bathrooms, and even a washing machine. the hosts are very nice and helpful. conclusion: absolutely recommended!
This is what you call a perfect combination. Great hosts and a fantastic apartment. Daniel and Silvia are the most welcoming hosts I've ever seen. Even with our key issue (Ipanema waves were slightly higher than expected) things (new key) got arranged within half an hour. Absolutely great and all with a big smile. Then the apartment. 2 blocks from Ipa and 5 from Copacabana. Lots of bars around, a very decent supermarket, a metrostation and a plethora of bus lines. Couldn't be better. Two bathrooms with great showers are available, which I think is a big plus with the beach around the corner. I highly recommend the hosts, the apartment and the location!
Silvia and Daniel were great Hosts!. They answered all of our questions upon arrival and gave us excellent tips on Rio. The apartment has an amazing location two blocks from Ipanema beach and a few blocks from Copacabana beach! Within walking distance you have supermarkets, juice bars, transportation and restaurants. Just across the street is a local favorite restaurant "casa de la fejioida". The internet worked well to communicate via (website hidden) back home. I would really recommend this apartment, its perfect to discover Rio
I really enjoyed staying at Silvia's flat. She was so easy to communicate with and was really understanding when we changed our check-in time (twice!) to take advantage of a beach we discovered on our drive to Rio. My favorite thing about the flat (besides the amazing hosts) was its location - two blocks from Ipanema Beach, maybe 5 blocks to Copacabana, and RIGHT me to the famous Hippie Market on Sundays. The second bedroom is small but it was perfect for us as it gave us a break from 3 people sleeping in the same hotel room. It was also a big bonus that that there were two full bathrooms so everyone could shower and get ready at the same time. We looked at some fancier AirBnbs in Rio (that cost at least 2x the price) price of Silvia's flat, but we chose this one because it had everything we needed and was good value at the price - we weren't disappointed! And I really can't say enough nice things about Silvia and her husband Daniel. They were the best AirBnb hosts I've met yet.
