Nice apartment and near the Maracana Stadium, Tijuca Forest and Grêmio Recreativo Escola de Samba Mangueira, one of the most traditional samba schools of Rio de Janeiro and one of the world's most popular.
The apartment has excellent broadband internet WIFI.
The apartment has two bedrooms, one used by the owner and one for guests, one suite with queen bed, private bath and one with a double bed and private bathroom in another environment. The owner lives in the apartment with her two adorable cats, they are very sociable, clean and behaved!
Under special circumstances and after consultation (for example, when the owner is traveling or in the owner's prior negotiation with guests), both rooms can be used for up to four guests, emphasizing that these are two double beds, one in each room. In such cases, the owner will occupy another dependency in the apartment.
The two bedrooms have private boxes and mattresses of excellent quality (viscoelastic foam and ecobamboo fabric, with 32 cm height of pure comfort).
The apartment has air-conditioning split in all rooms, Italian espresso machine, computer, wireless internet, living room with 42" TV and Blu Ray Player Full HD.
The apartment has a balcony, fully equipped kitchen and laundry area with washing machine and mangler steam.
All equipment and facilities of the apartment are available to guests, including covered garage, free of charge.
The apartment is located in the quiet, family friendly, with easy access to buses and taxis 24h, and is close to the subway station Saens Peña.
The area is very well served by trade, hospitals, bars, restaurants, shopping and places of high historical and tourist interest, as Vila Isabel and Quinta da Boa Vista, in addition to the Tijuca Forest, the Maracana stadium and easy access to historic city center and the beaches of the South Zone of Rio de Janeiro.
First of all: It was a wonderful time in Rio de Janeiro.
And one of the main reasons for it was the apartment Roberto is providing. He is a really nice guy. Unfortunately he left for holidays on the second day of our stay. So we shared the apartment with another French couple (booked through airbnb as well) and a friend of Roberto. But that was no problem. It was quite the opposite because Roberto’s friend was so polite and helpful. Thanks a lot again! The room fits the description: Separate room with separate bathroom incl. shower. So a lot of privacy if wished. As well it was air conditioned, really convenient while it was 36°C outside. On top Roberto and Angelica (the kind woman who originally owns the apartment and was gone during our stay as well) provided breakfast for us with coffee, bread, juice and more. It was a very pleasant stay and I would not hesitate a second to recommend it. Thanks again Roberto, Angelica and Claudio!
Maravilloso!!! Apartamento hermoso y acogedor con unos anfitriones espectaculares. Todo el tiempo nos sentimos como en nuestra propia casa. Tiene fácil acceso a las lineas de autobuses y metro. Habitación cómoda, gatos adorables :P. Una experiencia realmente increíble. De volver a Rio, me hospedaría en el mismo lugar.
Nossa estadia ficou bem acima do que esperávamos, chegamos e a Angélica(dona) não estava porém deixou TUDO preparado com avisos e nosso quarto muito bem arrumado e limpo. o Apartamento é muito aconchegante, bonito e bastante organizado. Nada fora do lugar, a cozinha( e os outros ambientes) é muito limpa e bem equipada. A parte física do apartamento não deixou a desejar, inclusive nos surpreendeu com a boa estrutura. Nosso quarto foi muito bem preparado, estava com lençóis novos e muito limpos, inclusive as toalhas. A mesa do café é impecável, tivemos sempre um belo café continental à disposição.
O tratamento da dona foi sempre cordial. Ela é uma mulher muito alegre, ao melhor estilo carioca. Sempre está disposta a servir. Tivemos a companhia do Roberto, que apesar da sua cansativa rotina bancária estava aberto a conversas até a madrugada. Os dois deram boas dicas de passeios, transporte e compartilharam muitas histórias com a gente.
Adoramos a hospedagem, impossível não querer retornar a um lugar que acolhe você bem e te deixa à vontade. Adoramos e já planejamos o retorno.
Roberto and Angelica are the nicest hosts! Angelica prepares breakfast for you every morning (my favorite part was the delicious mango juice). They are also more than happy to chat and make suggestions about what to do in Rio. When I was having trouble with my ATM card and had no cash left, Roberto even lent me money until I could get it sorted out with my bank! The apartment also has lots of amenities: wifi, a computer you can use, a nice speaker system, water filter, espresso machine, clothes washer... They were really amazing hosts and it was a nice apartment. The only drawback is location (a bit far from the best beaches for example), but for the price this apartment really can't be beat.
This place was amazing! Roberto is who is listed on airbnb and he was around often and helped facilitate things but the woman who actually lives here is named Angelica. She is so sweet, friendly, and helpful. It's just her and her two cats who live in the apartment. She always offered to help, had breakfast out every morning, and even gave us treats. She was like our Brazilian mom.
The apartment itself is very nice. It is decorated super cute and was very clean. You have access to a lot of amenities like the washing machine, water filter, etc. There is a bathroom attached to the bedroom that is for the guests only and is very clean and nice. She even left us out shampoo and conditioner. Also the wifi is great.
It is not super centrally located but they were always so helpful telling us how to use the metro and which buses to take so we never had a problem getting anywhere.
In all, I would definitely recommend this place. Seriously the best place I have stayed with through airbnb!
Un séjour très agréable et un accueil fort sympathique. Nous nous sentons chez nous et tout y participe : ambiance, organisation, atmosphère. Le quartier est un peu excentré mais les transports permettent de facilement rejoindre le centre. Autrement Andarai est un quartier animé et on y trouve tout ce dont on a besoin. Même un très beau stade de foot tout neuf où on peut voir un super match!
Roberto est disponible et donne de bons conseils pour découvrir le Brésil. Quant à Angelica maîtresse des lieux, c'est une femme charmante et chaleureuse qui nous a permis de passer un excellent séjour chez elle. Une très bonne adresse pour une prestation au très bon rapport qualité/prix!
we stayed here for a few nights. the apartment was very nicely presented and suited us perfectly. it is a very secure place, and it is only a short taxi ride away to the hot spots. roberto is a very nice man who is willing to help you with anything you may need. the cats are very friendly too.
Do you know that feeling you get when you arrive at your old friend`s house? well that`s exactly what you`ll feel when you stay at Roberto`s. They are among the most kind people I met in Brasil and they`ll do whatever is possible to make your experience in Rio unforgettable, from advising you the bus stations and the best ways to wherever you want to go, to chat with you and make an evening pleasant. The apartment is charming, one can see they`ve been living there for some time because the attention to details is evident. The neighborhood, though it is a little bit far from the touristic points, is really beautiful and from there you can go anywhere by Metro, so really the distance is an opportunity to know Rio better.
To conclude, this was my final thought when I left their apartment: I could have gone to a fur star hotel yet I would have paid four times as much and I would have deprived myself from the amazing opportunity to get to know Rio`s most valuable asset: its people.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
