We are a couple and arrived for the middle of carnival and had a great time. The flat is incredibly close to the sambadrome and the metro central so easy to get around to all of Rio. The building has 24hr doorman so feels very safe and the flat is on the 12th floor and looks straight into the sambadrome and up to Christ redeemer, it's a very beautiful view. 2 lifts up always working and friendly doorman. Everything in the apartment is perfect and all you need to self cater. The area is bustling during the day and night with cool bars and parties. You still need to be careful in Centro area as seems to be many suspicious people around which is advised on most websites but we walked most places and were fine. We really enjoyed our stay, Andre is very helpfully and quick to respond with advice or answers. We would definitely recommend as a place to stay to see this side of Rio with easy access to all other parts and great value for your money. Thanks Andre!
O apartamento é aconchegante, lindo que nem nas fotos e possui muitos equipamentos e utensílios, não faltamos de nada. A segurança e o conforto faz desse apartamento um lugar que recomendo vivamente.
O André foi um excelente anfitrião, sempre dando dicas, muito disponível, e sempre tentando ajudar.
Obrigada André !
Everything was easy and as described, what more can you ask for?
A estadia no apartamento do André foi perfeito. Extremamente bem localizado, equipado, seguro e limpo. Recomendo fortemente este anfitrião e seu apartamento.
Although I did not get to meet Andre, he was always available for any questions or queries that we had, and he always answered us immediately. The apartment was very homely and had everything that you require when on holiday. It is very well located, close to Lapa and Santa Teresa, and with direct buses to Copacabana and Ipanema round the corner. It is also very close to the Samba parade stadium, where other concerts are normally held. We were lucky to be able to listen to an Aerosmith concert for free while we were there :-) Thanks for the hospitality and I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone.
Apartamento com ótima localização, limpo e organizado! Recomendo!
I had great time in this apartement. It was clean, well equipped and view in the night is rly amazing:) Everythink was even better than it is presented on the pictures- which is kinda rare ;p
Andre is also good host: helpful, kind, polite and instant answers to your questions etc.
All perfect, recommend :)
Estive no apartamento do André por duas semanas. O apartamento é muito confortável, ventilado e em um prédio agradável. As fotos fazem justiça ao espaço.
Esta a poucas quadras da Lapa e do Centro da cidade, sendo portanto uma boa opção não só para quem esta passeando quanto também trabalhando.
André foi muito prestativo e claro durante todas as nossas comunicações antes e durante o período de hospedagem. Recomendo!
We had a great stay with Andre. We were 2 friends travelling to Rio for a total of 5 days, and though the apartment isn't huge it offered us plenty of space, and we found both the double-bed and the sofa-bed perfectly comfortable.
We felt pretty secure which was great as well - although the apartment is certainly in a busy area, the building has a 24-hour doorman plus the apartment is actually on the top floor and gated off from the rest of the building. We loved the fact of being pretty central and felt we saw more of the 'real' Rio in this area than we might have done if we stayed on Copacabana or Ipanema.
Although we never met Andre he was a great host. He responded promptly to all our questions via email and we had everything we needed. He was very accommodating of all our requests and even let us leave a couple of things in the apartment for a few days when we travelled round during the middle of our trip.
Overall, the place provided absolutely everything we needed with the added personality of staying in the centre of town, and we felt it was extremely good value for money considering prices for hotels and hostels in Rio that we had looked at. A great stay!
Andre is a very accommodating host- he makes himself available for any need. The apartment was clean and in a nice terrace-top area at the top of the building with TERRIFIC views. Using buses to get around was they way to go for us- the beach, the consulate, areas of interest, etc. We only used taxis for the airport trips- which was about R$15-R$30. There is a somewhat questionable pizza parlor across the street and several coffee shops in the vicinity. I would do Lapa or other areas for eating. The Police Academy is just a few doors down- so they are a constant presence and you can see them training out of the window- which was kind of cool. Due to the decor (lots of little knick knacks) and 11th floor window, I would not suggest this apartment for families with young children. Towels and linens are offered, although those who prefer certain standards should bring their own. Guests get the feeling that someone does live there on a regular basis- so it isn't like a hotel room. This spot is definitely for Brazilians or people who are travel savvy- as the neighborhood is not for foot traffic or exploring. This place is more for intermediate travelers that know how to blend in and want simple accommodations.
