One word, hot.
The host Yasmine and her son was great. They make you feel welcome and they'll help you with any problems that you have.
The room is small, but it was ok for me. The only problem that I have of the room that it was VERY hot. No ventilation, only 2 fan that didn't help to cool the room.
Liked Goda (the dog) and the 3 cats. They were fun.
Oh, Denis, Actually this year the heat was inhuman in Rio: We recorded 50 degrees Celsius! It's the hottest summer in history. For next year I'm already providing an air conditioner, which unfortunately will weigh on the lease, couse when we use the air conditioning in Brazil makes the electricity bill much higher :(
Spent just over 2 weeks in Yasmine's place. Both Yasmine and her son were very inviting and friendly. I had full use of the kitchen, my own shower/toilet and felt very confortable. The place is really 2 mins from the metro, and there are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. Yasmine provided me with a Brazilian phone and SIM, which was really handy. There's an outdoor market nearby every Sat. morning - well worth sampling the great Brazilian mangos and papayas. I suppose some people would prefer a larger room with A/C but the fan was good enough for me, and very quiet. The area facing the apartment is quiet at night too. Would stay again.
The apartment's location is quite convenient , close to everywhere. And I love the cats and dog.
The room itself is quite small and very hot during the summer. Even if I turned on two electric fans , I still sweated a lot during the night . So I'd recommend my fellow traveller use this room in winter times.
the host isn't really want to engage with new guest, I think they are bored with the new comers( as she said , more than a hundred).
So my rating is moderate positive.
Dear Yu, I feel sad that you have the feeling that we Dont engage With you. You are the first guest who reports that, among those over 100, many of Than becames our friends. Indeed, spending two days with us among all your tours, i dont think we have had a chance, really. The room is actually hotter during the summer, but we never have 50oC as this summer. It is not normal. You'll be always welcome, anyway. Thank you.
Yasmine....una mujer muy simpatica y solidaria....me senti super comodo....como si estuviera en mi casa...gracias Yasmine....un abrazo grande....tod
Yasmine was a very friendly and very helpfull host. She was available for my odd check-in schedule and very concerned everything went OK. During my stay, communication was great and she was very sympathetic. The house is very close to the subway and bus stations. Botafogo is a neighbourhood full of life and things apenning. It is an easy walk to Copacabana, Praia Vermelha and Urca. Although, forget about bathing in any beach inside Guanabara Bay.
I had a great time at her house . She and her son very warm-hearted . If u r looking for renting a room, her home is the best one in Rio. Near subway ,shopping centre and supermarket , very convenient to go everywhere. Botafogo is a definitely safe area of Rio. I have lived with them almost 15 days and I really enjoyed my staying. So come and say hi to them , u will be welcomed ~ :)))
Yasmine and her son are great hosts. The appartement is very well located,perfect to move in Rio. I spent a wonderful week.

Sou Jornalista, adoro conhecer pessoas de diferentes culturas. Quando comecei a alugar um espaço em minha casa para receber estudantes e turistas minha família achou muito perigoso! Pouco tempo depois eu já estava convencendo amigos e parentes a fazer o mesmo! Só tive ótimas experiências e encontrei mesmo uma oportunidade de conhecer gente interessante e fazer um intenso intercambio cultural!
Dou uma atenção especial aos possíveis hospedes que falam de si e dos motivos que os trazem à cidade, iniciando uma boa conversa para assim já irmos nos conhecendo. Meus hospedes se tornam meus amigos! E aos amigos, espero contribuir para uma ótima passagem pela Cidade Maravilhosa!
I'm a Journalist, I love to meet people from different cultures. When I began renting a room in my house to receive students and tourists my family thought very dangerous! Shortly after I was already convinced friends and relatives to do the same! I've only had great experiences and even found an opportunity to meet interesting people and make an intense cultural exchange!
I give special attention to potential guests who talk about themselves and why they bring to the city, starting a good conversation to knowing as well. My guests become my friends! And friends, I hope to contribute to a great pass by Wonderful City!
