O apartamento fica super bem localizado, próximo ao metro e à praça São Salvador, que anda super agitada. Conheci apenas a Francine, que me ofereceu suporte e é muito querida. Me apaixonei pela gata Henriqueta, uma amor! Fiquei num quarto com uma cama bem gostosa e ar condicionado, dormi muito bem.
A Francine e a Bárbara são gente boníssima. O mesmo posso dizer da Larissa e do Fabiano. Nos receberam de braços abertos na sua casa, foram parceiros para boas conversas, ótimos cafés (na fantástica máquina do fabiano) e cevas geladas. Ficar em sua casa nos permitiu aproveitar um pouco da bacana praça São Salvador e de conhecer um pouco deste anfitriões.
Meninas, valeu pela morada e pela parceria.

Francine's apartment is located in a good location, very close to the metro. She was a considerate host, and laid out towels for us and offered us use of all the food in the fridge, which was really nice!
Some small downsides are that we didn't know she has 2 cats, which I am allergic to, and the bedroom does not have air conditioning so it can get very hot!! Though I think we arrived during a heat wave...
Francine's apartment is very charming and original. I loved the drawings on the wall in the bathroom and her two cats. The apartment is located in a neighborhood that you would not necessarily visit as a tourist, but which is very nice, especially around the nearby plaza that is very lively in the evening. Taxis and public transportation are around the corner if you want to go to Ipanema or to the Sugarloaf Mountain. Staying at Francine's place is a great way to see a face of Rio that you may miss otherwise.
I can only recommend staying with Francine and Isabel, who proved themselves very amicable and attentive hosts during my stay. Their apartment is beautiful and calm, it has a good vibe and is ideally located in the fourth floor of a well-kept apartment building near the Praça São Salvador in the lively part of the residential Flamengo neighborhood, not far from the Metro station and a 10 min walk to the beach. The room is not big, but it feels comfortable and private, it comes with a fan and a TV and thanks to a big window it is very bright. A very good option for anyone looking for a simple and nice accommodation in a safe, not-so-touristy neighborhood between Downtown and Ipanema. I felt at home and would not hesitate to return.
I had a great stay at Francine's place.
Francine e Isabel foram duas queridas, nos sentimos em casa e bem recebidos. O apartamento é aconchegante e está em uma ótima localização. Além de tudo, também foi um prazer conhecer o gato Ernesto que nos deixará saudades. Esperamos reve-las em breve!! =)
Francine was a very gracious hostess. It is an amazing apartment with lots of character and the neighbourhood is safe and brilliant fun. I really felt at home and she was very generous and laidback.
I would highly recommend her place, especially if you are traveling on your own, but also for a couple/two people as there is plenty on space.
El departamento es muy cómodo y muy lindo, ubicado en una zona insuperable, y lo mejor, Francine es genial!! Muy recomendado para pasar un tiempo espectacular en una ciudad maravillosa.
