The Space

Spacious duplex apartment fully furnished with a suite with a king bed and a bedroom with two twin beds on the second floor and three rooms on the first floor, with home theater screen with 52", fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator, stove, microwave, Italian espresso coffee machine, grill and laundry area with automatic washing machine .

Broad band WIFI 24 hours. Just 200 m from the Casa do Caminho, a language centre known around the entire world.

The apartment has excellent broadband internet WIFI.

Besides the bathroom upstairs, two full bathrooms on the first floor, one of them with Jacuzzi for two people.

I live in the apartment, which ensures the quality of the environment.

However, I travel a lot for work and therefore most of the time, the apartment will be fully available to guests without my presence.

Whenever possible, I try visiting guests and give them tips and information about the city.

In special cases, upon prior negotiation with guests, the apartment can host up to 8 people, since, besides the two rooms with capacity for four people (one double bed and two single beds), the apartment has two sofa-beds, which allow comfortable accommodation for four people, since there are three full bathrooms in the apartment.

Pleasant environment less than 10 minutes walk from the beach of Ipanema and Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas.

Local served by subway, buses and taxis 24 hours.

Local internationally recognized for bars, restaurants, hospitals, supermarkets, boutiques and fine clubs representing the Carioca spirit!!

The building has 24 hour security and concierge.

Guests are treated like friends, with unlimited access to all facilities and equipment of the house.

  • Pros:
    - Fantastic location. Close to taxis, great restaurants and the beach. Very walkable community.
    - The security guard was great and very helpful -- as were the other residents.
    - The 3 bathrooms helped us get ready, though only one of them was easy to use with hot water.
    - The beds were comfortable.

    Cons:
    - You needed a lighter or matches to turn the hot water on in 2 of the 3 bathrooms it was a bit annoying, so we just showered in the automatic hot water bathroom.
    - The refrigerator didn't close. I felt bad because that's a waste of electricity and we tried many things to close it, but it just didn't work.
    - The washer didn't wash clothes? I may have used it incorrectly, but it just spun for over an hour and the water didn't drain.
    - The new AirBnB guests arrived at 1030 the day I checked-out. While they were friendly, it was a bit of an annoyance since check out wasn't until noon and the new check-in wasn't until 2pm.
    - The AC's in the living room blew warm air. Thankfully it was winter in Rio when we visited so it wasn't too big of a deal. I can imagine that's frustrating during the summer though.

    Since we were there to visit Rio and celebrate the World Cup, we didn't stay inside the unit much. The location was great, though there are things to improve. Since we were barely inside, it was sufficient for us.

  • Amazing place! I loved the apartment and the location. The doormen were so nice and helpful, and it's a short walk to the beach and many restaurants! Everything was smooth and easy!

  • Fue una muy buena experiencia, el lugar cumplió con todo lo prometido. El hecho que todo el departamento estuviera completo y a nuestra disposición fue lo que hizo que la experiencia sea completa.
    El departamento está ubicado en una zona espectacular a unas pocas cuadras de la playa de Ipanema y a aproximadamente un kilómetro de la playa de Copacabana.
    La zona es muy interesante y tiene bastantes lugares para comer y hacer compras.
    Un 10 para este departamento!

  • Pros:
    The apartment is located in the center of Ipanema, which is a perfect spot as it is close to the great ipanema beach, the lagoa and many nice restaurants and bars. Both the building and the district are very safe. The neighbours and employees of the building were friendly.

    Although we had no chance to meet, Roberto was always accessible per E-Mail or phone and gave us a hand whenever we needed one. He was a great host.

    Cons:
    Unfortunately the apartment is also close to a favela, that is extremely loud. Noisy music runs almost the whole night. So it is absolutely not recommendable to persons which are seeking for quiet sleep.

    The apartment is properly furnished, though it don´t really correspond to western standards. Some of the furnitures are old, e.g. the 2 - 3 couch were broken and holey.

    @Robert: Thanks for your assistence, it was a pleasure being your guest. All told it was a nice place and we had a great time.

  • El departamento es muy, muy amplio. Puede alojar hasta seis huéspedes con un poco de esfuerzo. Se cuenta con variedad de libros y vídeos para todos los gustos, así como tres cuartos de baño. Se encuentra entre la Lagoa y la playa, excelentemente ubicado.

  • Everything was as shown on the pictures. We have never met Roberto but the check in and out went well. The location is good but very loud..the view from the window is directly to the favelas wich is very noisy. Two of the three bathrooms are barely usable because it is extremely to gas stinks. We closed just the doors and it was ok. The apartment has everything you need, especially much place.

The apartment is exactly as described and shown on Airbnb, beautiful, spacious, very convenient and the location is perfect. What can I say more? Go stay at Roberto's if you're in Rio!
