This is one of the safest neighborhoods in Rio, Urca is really the most charming and security place. We have a perfect view of the Corcovado, Guanabara Bay and of the city.
Here everything is an excuse for a walk through the quiet streets; the markets, local bars, restaurants and bistros take all 5-10 min away by foot.
Sugar Loaf is 15 min by foot and next have the restaurant and nightclub Zozô.
Should you want to hit the beach or go somewhere more agitated, bus lines take you to the city centre, or anywhere on the zona sul; one bus line takes you directly to the subway.
Room with double bed, private bathroom, air conditioning, spacious wardrobe. Our guests are welcomed with comfort and tranquility.
Bedding clean and of good standard.
A few steps to Sugar Loaf, bus stop in front to south zone, center, lapa, easy access to anywhere you want, bus metro stops in front.
The neighborhood is very quiet where you can make a nice walk and take beautiful pictures, trendy bars to choose, only a few steps.
Well frequented restaurants, markets, drugstores.
We speak English, french and portuguese.
Nous avons eu un bon accueil. La chambre est sympa, il est possible de discuter en anglais avec elle. La chambre est bien équipée et confortable. On a même eu des petits singes un matin sur l'arbre en face de la fenêtre... !!! :) La vue est belle, et le bus s'arrête juste en face de l'appartement direction direct vers Copacabana, Ipanema, ou station de métro. Petit + avant de faire le check in on a pu laisser nos bagages à l'arrivée chez elle.
Cissa is a great host. Her place is the safest and best place in Rio. I definitely recommend you to stay at Cissas place.
Very nice, clean and well located room! If you look for a quiet neighborhood in Rio, this is where you should stay. Cissa is very nice and helpful. The room looks just like it does on the photos.
Cissa's has a lovely place in the beautiful and peaceful suburb of Urca. Cissa was a very helpful host and accommodating host.
The room is spacious, clean, with an attached bathroom and plenty of wardrobe space. There is an aircon, fridge and TV in the room.
The best part of the house/room it overlooks the bay, it's in a lovely quite part of Rio, nice to stroll to the Sugarloaf and the beach next to it. There is a bus stop just outside the house, with very frequent buses to town and the metro stop at Botafogo.
The area of Urca is beautiful, with a nice beach Praia Vermelha (next to the cable car to Sugarloaf). There is a lovely path that runs by the base of Sugarloaf starting at the beach, which is great for walk, running or hiking up Sugarloaf.
Bar Urca, which is 50m away from the house is ideal for a beer on the wall by the water or a good meal at the restaurant on the 1st floor.
Couldn't recommend Cissa's place any higher and would not have wanted to stay anywhere else in Rio!
O apartamento é exatamente como descrito no anúncio e Cissa uma simpatia. A Urca é incrível e a vista que se tem da janela do quarto te deixa de bom humor assim que acorda. O fato de ficar ao lado do Bar da Urca é um plus que não se pode esquecer. Só fiquei triste de não ter tido tempo de desfrutar o belíssimo terraço, vai ficar para a próxima! Eu e meu marido adoramos!
Cissa is a very nice outgoing person! My husband and I loved her place. It has a beautiful view and her house is very close to a bakery and a bus stop. Thx Cissa!
The place is just awesome, I really felt 100 percent comfortable there! There is plenty of space in your room, a big bed, a private amply (email hidden) and - best of all - a great view: From your window you look right on the bay, so beautiful, I miss it already. Urca is a quiet and relaxed oasis. There are plenty of buses just outside the door which take you to the centre, to Ipanema and to Copacabana. And most of all Marcia (aka Cissa) is such a great host, so helpful, charming and cordial. I highly recommend her place and would always come back. Muito obrigado, Cissa!
Foi realmente muito agradavel ficar na Cissa. A vista é invrivel, mas alem disso, a Cissa é dedicada ao bem estar dos seus hospedes. Recomendo 100%
Très agréable séjour chez Cissa. La vue est belle et Cissa est dédiée au bien-être de ses hôtes. Disponible et discrète, nous nous sommes tout de suite senti à l'aise. Je recommande cette adresse.
Very pleasant stay at Cissa's. The view is beautiful and Cissa is dedicated to the well-being of her guests. She is available and discreet and we immediately comfortable at her place. I highly recommend this address.
Fantastiskt läge på foten av Sockertoppen. Det känns som man bor i en by mitt i staden. Bussar går ofta in till alla delar av Rio och finns direkt utanför huset. Runt hörnet finns en restaurang som även har frukost från kl.8:00.
Området känns mycket säkert. På kvällarna kunde vi gå till olika restauranger i området.
Ett mycket bra ställe att bo på!
Cissa es una persona maravillosa y pendiente de ayudarte con cualquier necesidad, tanto que ya me hace falta. La habitación es muy bonita y completa ademas de siempre estar en optimas condiciones. Este lugar es recomendable para alguien que quiera vivir en la tranquilidad para disfrutar la ciudad de Rio de Janeiro.
