We rented this apartment for two weeks in February 2014. The place is only two blocks from the beach and has many supermarkets and farmers markets all around which is very convenient. Upon arrival we were not met by anyone but just given a key by the doorman and went on up.
There apartment itself needs some TLC as it was a little worn out (holes in the walls, light bulbs without shades, bleached spots on the sheets, dirty dishes and utensils, old scratched up and dented pots and pans, the curtains don't reach the bottom of the window, etc). There were also little ant-like creatures infesting the kitchen which appeared anytime we tried to cook, which we never encountered in our two months in Brazil before. The kitchen also has a little balcony but doesn't have a door so whatever temperature it is outside it will be in the kitchen - including rain and wind. The water in the kitchen only works 50% of the time, making it difficult to cook and especially wash dishes. This is the same water hooked up to the laundry machine so we had to take our clothes to the laundromat. The water in the bathroom works just fine though.
The most difficult thing for us was sleeping because the bedroom has slots in the wall for ventilation which open onto an inner gallery and can never be closed. This means that you hear everything your neighbors do all through the night (like showering, cooking, partying, video games, music, fighting, etc).
The living room is comfortable, and the TV is brand new and pretty big. We also enjoyed the coffee machine that was provided. This apartment would work well for people who aren't light sleepers and plan on eating out more than eating in.
I am happy to hear that you appreciated the ideal location of the apartment, the large TV and the comfortable living room and the coffee machine and thank you for your review as I am always looking to see where improvements can be made. Of the many many guests I have had this is one of the only negative critiques of the apartment thus I was surprised to read your review and regret that you were not completely satisfied as that is my intent I have for all my guests. Normally Rita greets all my guests when they stay at my place, but occasionally when she can not make it she informs the doorman of your pending arrival and he has the key for you. I am glad that you had no problems getting the key and entering the apartment, but apologize you didn't get the personal service that you expected. As for the pots and utensils not being clean enough for your standards it sounds like this was a one time occurrence and I will make sure the cleaners take special attention to this moving forward. After every guest leaves, I have the apartment professional cleaned in a very thorough manner and of all my guests I have never heard a complaint with this, the cleanliness of the apt. is one of the most common compliments I receive after the ideal location. I will be sure to bring up your critique to the cleaners attention to make sure this does not happen (website hidden) past guests have been very satisfied with the apartment given the value they receive for the premiere location, the cleanliness of the apartment, the comfortable living room, nice (website hidden), high speed internet, and overall a great place to call home while visiting the best area Rio has to offer.
Excelente ubicación, cerca de todos los medios de transporte. A 2 cuadras de la playa y del centro de Ipanema. A media cuadra el metro, que te lleva a diferentes puntos de la ciudad. El departamento tiene todos los servicios y esta bien cuidado. Hay encargado las 24hs y nos sentimos bastante seguros.
Tanto Gisele como Rita, nos respondieron siempre las consultas y dudas que surgieron.
Muy recomendables. Muchas gracias por todo!
Gisele's place is excellent, located very close to the main shopping and restaurant precinct in Ipanema, public transport to all parts of Rio is very easy by bus, beach is also just a 2 minute walk. Communication with Gisele is very good, with fast responses via email. Hope to spend more time when I next visit Brazil.
Gisele's apartment was a great base camp for my visit to Rio: near the beach, across the street from a juice stand, and complete with a spacious living room (for mine and my partner's suitcases).
Comfortable and well located flat. The host, Gisele, is very helpful and is truly concerned about her guests' experience. As it is an old flat, small problems might appear, but the host will come out of her way to solve everything.
As described - great location - clean - good Internet and facilities
Gisele's apartment is terrific. it has a superb location in beautiful Ipanema, close to the beach, restaurants and public transportation. the apartment has all that you need, hot water, cable tv, wireless and the highlight - a nespresso machine:)...while being out of capsules upon arrival one quick mail to Gisele and in one hour capsules were waiting at our doorstep. although we have not met Gisele she helped us via mail the whole time and was very quick to reply. We highly recommend the apartment for a wonderful stay in ipanmea.
Excelente ubicación, seguridad 24/7, departamento limpio y muy bien equipado. Un poco de ruido de los vecinos por la mañana pero nada de que preocuparse. Totalmente recomendable. Cuando regrese a Rio intentaré alojarme aquí otra vez!
