Marcelo's apartment was great! I booked it for my parents, who came to Rio for my wedding, and it worked out great for them! Great location, secure and clean! Marcelo was also very accommodating and helpful.
Foi ótima a estadia no apartamento do Marcelo em Ipanema, o apartamento está muito bem conservado, além da decoração de muito bom gosto e a ótima localização, no melhor ponto de Ipanema, perto da praia e com várias opções de restaurantes. Quero muito passar por ai outras vezes !!
There were good days in Marcelo´s apartment at Ipanema. The apartment is in a good state of preservation, have a very nice decoration and a perfect localization in the best part of Ipanema, near from the beach and lots of restaurants and another services options. I really would like to stay there again !!
Tudo muito certo
This was our first time to Rio and our first time booking an apartment thru airbnb.
It was a wonderful and positive experience. Reservation, amendment, contact and communication with Marcelo and airbnb – everything was very easy, precise and fast in reply.
On arrival Marcelo has left the key with the doorman; he had put some fresh food and drinks in the refrigerator, a light was on . . we felt home right away.
Marcelo arrived 20 minutes after our arrival to say hello and asked if we would need anything and proposed his help for any matter during our stay.
The apartment has a perfect location; it is well equipped and super clean. We felt very safe in his place and the area.
If we return to Rio we would definitely book this apartment again. Obrigado Marcelo. .
I stayed for 1 week
Everything was great
Apt clean and well appointed
Marcelo was extremely accomodating
Good communication during the booking, flexibility on arrival and departure times, place was smelling nice and was tidy when we arrive. Unfortunately that didn't last long. Host insistently trying contact us to "meet up" which I found intrusive. Many areas need urgent update (cupboards under the sink smells of damp wood, i.e.). Cockroaches on more than one night. Our bedroom sheet had a massive bleached stain. For the price we were paying (more £1000), the host could have afforded to buy a new set of bedlinen. Unannounced people were ringing at the front door constantly. Once a maintenance guy sent by the host (that didn't ask us permission) to fix the AC. My husband doesn't speak Portuguese and was completely lost. The man entered the apartment and started hanging from the window (8th floor!) to fix the AC (aircon was working fine, he couldn't understand what was happening). Two days later, the night previous to our wedding, we were woke up at 2am by loud bangs on the front door, and the door bell. We were so scared that even now I get the same distress. We went to the door and asked who it was to get a voice from the other side of an angry neighbor shouting and ordering us to turn off the air conditioning because we were flooding (!) his apartment. He was so aggressive and I was asking myself why on earth I was receiving that sort of abuse on my holidays. The only thing I could tell him was that we would turn it off, which we did, and put up with a 81F heat and mosquitoes for the whole night. I wrote to the host at 2am to tell him what happened. I got a reply an apologetic reply in the morning. However on his reply he said that only now the AC has been on and it has been cold in Rio - what is not true, with temperature reaching 100F previous weeks. On his own words, he would have to send someone to fix and we should "go to the beach". My reply was that I wish I could be "going to the beach", but had personal businesses to deal with in Brazil. Strikes me that he didn't think that he should address the issue with the neighbor instead of leaving it to us to sort it and be there for maintenance guys to access the property whilst are belongings were there. Because of his lack of interest and maintenance of the property, we were the ones paying the price. The host seems more interested in putting L'Occitane shampoo and conditioner than to care for the security and well-being of their hosts. With the rise on tourists in Rio, be very aware of people speculating without really investing. It was my first experience with airbnb and probably the last one, what is a shame as I think the concept is great.
Amazing!!! That's the right word for Marcelo and his home! He is a fantastic person, very nice and helpful. We arrive at the airport and he send us a person to pick us up and bring to his home! Then Marcelo explained and shows us everything in his apartment, which have really everything and even more then u need! There was even the hair straightener!!
The apartment is located in a very posh area, close to the beach, night bars, restaurants, the bus stop is in front of the home and there is always people going around. I always feel safe (and I am a very paranoid person!!!). Defenetely recommended, can't ask for a better place to stay!
Marcelo's flat was perfect for our stay in Rio. It's ideally sized for 2 people and situated in a great location of Ipanema; 2 blocks to the beach, short walk to fast food / nice restaurants, bars, freshly prepared juice stores, etc. You really can't ask for more.
We had a really great stay at Marcelo’s apartment. This was our first time using AirBNB in Rio and not staying in a hotel – we will never go back to paying for an overpriced and basic hotel in Ipanema again! The apartment is spotlessly clean, very well appointed and full of little extra touches that we did not expect.
We were able to move in soon after 12 noon on our day of arrival and as nobody was moving in on the day we left we could stay until we needed to leave for our 10pm flight time – no more scrambling to leave bags in the hotel. They even provided a free taxi to the airport on the last day – as we stayed a few days - what a great surprise.
Right in the middle of all the bars/restaurants and facilities of the main commercial area in Ipanema – few blocks walk from the Metro and beach it is a perfect area.
The view of Corcovado is great – we spent much time in the hammock - and the location at the rear of the building makes for quiet sleeping with the window open when it is cool enough. Aircon for the bedroom works great otherwise. The double bed is firm and really comfortable with great quality sheets and towels and beach towels. They even provided an umbrella and 2 folding chairs for the beach – a real money saver when you stay for a week!
The wifi is fast and reliable and the flat screen TV with local channels and iPod dock for the bedroom is great. Nice mood lighting for the evenings and was great to be able to do laundry/drying on the last day before we left. There is one US style socket in the utility room and a couple of adaptors provided in the drawer.
We loved our stay here and Marcelo’s place will be our first place to check out when we come back if it is available. Really look forward to coming back and enjoying the hospitality of Marcelo next time!
Excelente!!! 100% recomendable, muy limpio y ordenado, excelente ubicación, amplio, muy bien equipado. Marcelo aunque no nos encontramos presencialmente, se preocupo de todos los detalles, nos tenía fruta, cervezas, agua, jugo, yogurt, café, guías de turismo, etc. Si volviera a Rio mi primera opción antes de cualquier hotel sería este departamento.
Muchas gracias Marcelo!
