  • Great host who immediately made us feel welcome. The location couldn't be much closer to Copacabana Beach which was exactly what we were looking for. Thoroughly enjoyed the place and will be back!

  • Estuvimos en río por 4 noches... El apartamento estuvo muy bien. La ubicación genial el aparte yo es justo lo que uno necesita en una ciudad como río. Hubo un detalle con uno de los aires de los cuartos pero fue solucionado por el anfitrión lo más pronto posible. La amabilidad de Niky fue increíble. Recomiendo este apartamento y al anfitrión a un 100%

  • Nossa, experiência com o anfitrião Nick, foi foi boa nos atendeu em tudo que foi solicitado. O Apto atingiu nossas expectativas, ótima localização, roupa de cama e banho e apto limpinho. O único detalhe é a falta de ar na sala (dias muito quente) e cortina da sala que não estava fechando.

  • Pros:
    - Nicky is friendly, and met us on the scheduled time.
    - the apartment is just one block away from Copacabana beach, and also close to Arpoador, Ipanema, and other sights.
    - the place have supermarkets and all banks in the same block, public bike renting spots are also close, and the taxi for most sights get cheap.
    - Nice beds;
    - Bed sheets and towels available;
    - the apartment is fully equipped, there is air conditioning in both bedrooms.

    Cons:
    - the shower temperature oscillated involuntarily, and it's impossible to have warm water. You have to choose between cold, and boiling water.
    - the wifi signal was good only in the kitchen, on bedrooms and TV room the signal is poor.
    - during the day the noise from Copacabana avenue is loud. If you wish to rest and have long sleeps in the morning, this is not a place for you.
    - there is no table in the kitchen.
    - the apartment is not as new and fancy as in the photos, but it's okay..

    For the price and location, I do recommend Nicky's place! The price is totally worthy compared to other hostels and hotels. Have fun!

  • Overall the experience was very good. Nick was a very nice receiving us and responding to our every question.
    The house is in good conditions and is very well fit for 4 maybe even 5 persons.
    The only downsides are :
    - noise, the room faced to the main avenue is very noisy and the A/Cs are noisy as well.
    - lack of enough furniture to unpack your backs
    Plus sides :
    - location, location, location
    - existance of porter from (phone number hidden) ! Means you don't need to take keys to anywhere if you arrive before 00:30.
    - well equiped kitchen
    - Good communication with the host.

    Overall it was a very nice house with no problem whatsoever.

  • Was traveling to Rio for the first time with 2 other friends. Great location and had everything we needed. Not the most comfortable bed, but it was fine. Clean, fresh towels were provided as well. Wifi went in and out, but I think that was the provider's issue. Luckily, there is a Starbucks with free wifi just down the street. Doormen were friendly. Nicky was very responsive and helpful beforehand as well as throughout our stay! Would recommend to anyone traveling and simply needing a place to shower and sleep. A very brief walk to the beach.

  • For the price we paid it was worth it and I could recommend to others, however if returning to Rio I would pay more for a nicer spot.

    The apartment is nicer in the pictures than reality, so not the amazing deal I thought we were getting, but still a fair price. The location was good and cabs in Rio are very cheap and plentiful, so its easy getting around to other parts of the city.

    That said, on our arrival to Rio we couldn't get a hold of nicky at all, being our first airbnb experience was in an unfamiliar city (email hidden), it was a little unnerving. Fortunately the doorman didn't require anything more than 'a gente ta aqui pra nicky' to let us in. Apparently he had the wrong cell number listed on this site, hopefully this is updated for others.

  • Nicky's apartment is a great deal: it's clean, bright, (email hidden) to stay in amazing Rio!

About
Hi fellow Airbnb-ers, Mr Francis , Nixx, Nicky ,Nick call me what you like Originally from England but now in South America I love This crazy thing called life. I enjoy meeting interesting multi dimensional people from any country, class or colour ., I don't understand negative or petty people! because I believe life is just too short! I'm not the greatest tour guide, but it would be my pleasure to help you where I can. I administrate a few places on here, so feel free to take a browse of my listings. Please remember that some of these places may be owners homes and not hotels, So don't expect the hilton treatment as I like to keep it sweet & simple. Let me know also if the apt is different from what was listed and I will do my best to Rectify the situation. Remember even though we are here to do a lil Bizniz the most important thing is to enjoy Rio de Janeiro in all it's splendour ! Rio is always an Experience! My favourite travel hotspots outside of Brazil - Colombia or Caribbean Here is a story for you There was a married American guy called Lance who was working abroad as a computer systems analyst to make ends meet.He traveled a lot for his job And had been doing so for the last 37 years. Last year whilst working in Thailand He picked up a young sexy wife 23 years old she was and a real beauty! It was really difficult for him to leave her at home, but the bills needed to be paid and besides his wife was high maintenance. In a particularly difficult month he received a message from his Desirable Wife who was taking care of his home" I signed up for a new service Airbnb Where you can rent space in your house,make good money and I buy new Shoes" Having a beautiful home (and not to mention photo), it wasn't long before she received A guest, actually a handsome pilot from Greece, Adonis was his name. After 5 days Lance could hardly make contact with his wife but unexpectedly received a message from his Airbnb guest. : Hi Sir, Thank you, I enjoyed using your home & everything your city had to offer, I hope you won't be mad but I was using your wife...I was using day and night ... I explored immensely, I was using when you are not present at home... In fact I was using more than You are using..... I confess this because now I feel very much guilt... And is not acceptable under the eyes of God Hope You will accept my sincere apologies". ... Lance distraught with this revelation , jumped On the next plane to his city, , entered his home tied & taped up his wife., and made her watch while he cut Up and burnt all her expensive clothes and shoes, put her in front of the mirror And proceeded to shear off her hair Few minutes later he received another message : Sorry sir, spelling mistake ... wifi not wife. Lol!
