The Space

Excellent apartment located in the heart of Botafogo, opposite the Subway, 1 block from Botafogo Praia Shopping!!! Now with Wi-fi!!!

This is a lovely, perfectly located 2 bedrooms (with air conditioning), a spacious living room with TV and DVD, 2 baths, laundry with washing machine and full kitchen.

Comfortable for up to 5 people.
One double bed, one single bed and sofa or air mattress
Hot water in both bathrooms and kitchen!

The building is very safe and familiar, with 24hr concierge.

Do not allow to use the playground, incluiding swimming pool and the barbecue grill. Do not allow to use the garage. It's restrict for the residents.

The neighborhood is known for hosting one of the major postcard of the country: the Botafogo Bay, with the hills of Sugar Loaf and Urca in the background.

Attractions include the Home of Ruy Barbosa, the Museu do Índio — which explores the culture and history of the major indigenous peoples of Brazil — and the Villa-Lobos Museum.

With a high concentration of cafés and cinemas, including several movie theaters that feature arthouse films, Botafogo has a decidedly traditional tone, connected to nearby neighborhoods such as Copacabana and Ipanema. It is home to two of the city's largest shopping centers: Rio Sul and Botafogo Praia Shopping.

  • We, Rolf and Reto, were there for the World Cup. Price remained normal and not excessive even during World Cup. Marcio and Joelma were very friendly hosts. For instance they left coffee in the coffee box, some fruits and even a Metro Card in the house. They explained everything. The location of the apartment is great - it is a safe and clean neighbourhood, the Metro Station is just across the street and the apartment itself is big with two nice bedrooms. We can always recommend it.

  • This was a perfect location for Rio, with good access to uptown, downtown and the beaches. The apartment was nicely furnished with all amenites, and the host very kindly left some fruit and basic things so that we could immediately feel at home. There are supermarkets and bakeries nearby. Ideally this is a place for two couples, although we squeezed 5 in, using a spare mattress. At the price it's a very good place to stay, and the hosts are very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed staying there

  • This place was perfect! The apartment is as pictured and very clean. It accommodated 5 people quite well. It is located in a great area being very close to the metro and bus stops making it easy to get around Rio. Marcio and his wife were so kind and helpful. Thank you so much for making our Carnaval experience great!

  • I didn’t get to meet Marcio, but one of my companions thought he was “cute”. His wife is charming, and so honest and helpful that when we left, she raced out to give us something we had left behind. The apartment is clean and comfortable. The in the height of summer, the 2 showers and the washing machine were an advantage over a hotel. Both bedsroom are proper doubles.
    The location is the best part. The metro entrance is opposite the front door. If you are too late for the metro (11:00), The simple phase “Botafogo Metro” takes you right to it for about R$25 from the city centre. Surrounded by local food shops bars and restaurants, without being a tourist bazaar. It’s not a dangerous area, despite what you might have read about Rio. The local people seem harmless enough. I don’t think they even acknowledged us strangers. The entrance apartment itself is controlled by doormen 24hrs.
    The only thing that detracts from the apartment is the street noise after 6 in the morning. In summer you have to choose between an open window, or the slightly noisy air-conditioning. It’s no one’s fault. It probably only matters if you have late nights and need to cram sleep.
    I recommend it and wish we could visit again.

  • Marcio and his wife were lovely hosts! The apartment is just as pictured, comfortable and well-located. Everything was very clean, and they were very accomodating about times to pick up and drop off the keys. I would definitely stay here again!

  • A localização do apartamento é excelente, ao lado do metrô, de um ponto de táxi e próximo de vários pontos de ônibus que levam às principais atrações turísticas e praias do Rio. Muitos barzinhos e lugares bacanas para comer em volta, cinema, mercado, farmácia e toda a estrutura urbana necessária para uma estadia confortável. O apartamento é totalmente equipado e exatamente como apresentado, muito limpo e arrumado. O Marcio e a Joelma foram ótimos, supertranquilos com check-in e check-out. Estávamos com nossas mães e não temos do que reclamar! Os quartos são confortáveis e mesmo na sala é possível ter alguma privacidade. Muito recomendável para grupos de até seis pessoas.

  • O apartamento é excelente. Muito equipado, bem localizado e o mais importante, muito limpo. Atendeu todas as necessidades da minha família, inclusive da minha filha de apenas um ano.
    Foi uma ótima hospedagem e havendo oportunidade voltaria a ficar no local.
