Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Apartamento exatamente como está nas fotos, estava muito limpo, a localização é ótima, o condomínio dispõe de restaurante e a comida é muito boa, recomendo.
    O Paulo e a Paula muito atenciosos e estavam a disposição sempre que fosse preciso.

  • Everything was great like the other comments already stated and Fabio, Paulo and Paula really cared that we had all we needed.
    The location is great, the apartment in the same as shown in the pictures (even bigger than I thought) and really cozy, it´s an excellent choice to be at when in Rio.

  • My experience with Fabio, Paula and Paulo was better than I could have asked. I agree with all of the positive feedback about the apartment and location. In addition to the accommodations, they were very hospitable when; 1) Fabio invited me to his New Year's Eve party before I even met him in person, 2) understanding when I accidentally broke something, and 3) helpful when my flight was cancelled and Paula assured me that I did not have to worry about being able to stay longer or possibly even not getting the key back to her if I was able to grab a flight while I was at the airport trying to sort things out.

    I travel a lot and often trust that things will just work out but in this circumstance, I realized how important it is that hosts are this caring about people who are in different countries and may not have planned for the unexpected. Stay here and you will not only be in a great area but in wonderful hands.

    January 2014
  • Great apartment, wonderful place, comfortably furnished, clean and tidy. Couldn't ask for more. I really enjoyed my time here, felt very at ease and Fabio is a great host! Definitely recommend, and would happily stay here again.

    December 2013
  • We stayed for 2 days. Location is perfect if you want to be right near the nightlife in lapa. Room was exactly as shown in the pictures and very clean. It is locared in a modern apartment complex with 24h security. Communication was easy both with fabio and paulo. Would recommend it.

    November 2013
  • Great apartment for a good price! Paulo was extremely flexible with the times of check in and check out. That made our stay absolutely perfect. The apartment was clean, exactly as on the pictures, the bed is really comfortable and the location in Lapa is central. I recommend this place strongly. Thanks for making our stay in Rio perfect.

    November 2013
  • Fabio's apartment was precisely as shown in the images. Everything worked fine, and the building was indeed very secure.
    The area surrounding the building (Lapa-centro) is pretty much ran down, but still, we were even able to take buses once we got used to the scenery, and had no problems at all.
    The apartment doesn't have good kitchen ware to cook with, but on the upside there is a cafe-restaurant by the swimming-pool downstairs with really tasty meals and breakfast, at a more than affordable price. It is also in the middle of the night scene, with lots of bars, coffees and restaurants. If it's your thing, then this apartment is the place for you. It takes around 30 minutes by bus to either Copacabana or Ipanema. By taxi it could be less, but also could be more. Traffic jams in Rio are insane.
    I didn't meet Fabio, but I did meet Paulo on our first day. He was ok, though perhaps I would have expected more info and attention from a host.
    All in all, should I come back to Rio for partying, I would definitely consider coming here again.

    October 2013
  • Our stay in this apartment was perfect. It is just like the photos and as advertised. Everything is clean and well decorated.
    The neighborhood is excellent for nightlife and the location is a good basis to explore the city.
    Paulo and Fabio are great hosts. They care about us very well.
    I would definetely recommend it to everyone for a save and comfortable stay in Rio.

    September 2013
  • All of our friends told us that Lapa and the Santa Teresa neighborhoods were the best places to be in Rio, so we were excited to stay at Fabio's. Here's the thing that we didn't know: Fabio is one of the best, most knowledgable, and most generous hosts on Airbnb. There was a minor problem with the electricity when we arrived (which had never happened before, he noted), so he had filled the room with candles, provided us with emergency lights and equipment, and even offered to put us up in a nearby hotel if necessary (we declined). He walked us around the neighborhood pointing out interesting places, then gave us a tour later in the weekend. Fabio went above and beyond for us to make sure we experienced Rio de Janeiro at its best. Thanks, Fabio!

  • Lovely apartment (exactly as advertised) that was our home base in Rio. Very convenient location: Only a few minutes taxi drive from SDU (we paid 14 reais) and approx. half an hour from GIG (we paid 140 reais), a few blocks from the subway as well as tons of buses close by that take you pretty much everywhere in Rio. There are also a lot of cool restaurants and bars close by, we tried various ones in the neighborhood and they were all excellent. Both Fabio & Paulo made communication very easy, and our stay a truly pleasant one. Thank you!

Hí. I´m married, i like pets and i work with Marketing / Business Administration.
