Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • 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!

  • The apartment has a great location. Carnival time best views of the Sambadrome. highly recommended.
    Andre gave us good advice and is very helpful.
    We have felt ourselves very well.

  • We enjoyed our stay at Andre's and it's definitely a great place if you're looking for a cheap place to stay close to Lapa and Central. The area the place is in isn't the nicest in the evening, although being next door to the police station does offer good security. Also, the shower wasn't ideal, but I believe Andre is having that fixed. I don't think the pictures do the place much justice, but there is plenty of room, a nice kitchen and good for those saving money while travelling.

  • Andre was a good host in absentia. Any issue/question - one just had to sms him and a response would promptly come. A clean room with a single bed and a mattress, a small kitchen and bathroom with a washing machine, located close to the police academy, walking distance from the bus stand. A great place to stay for any one wanting to experience Rio.The neighborhood is not a great place to spend an evening, but its location makes it a great base to travel around Rio.

    Response from André:

    You may not have noticed, but the sofa is a double bed.
    Being a central region, not advise spending the night there. But you're the 5 minute taxi from Lapa, with excellent Bars and Nightclubs (Bohemia region of Rio de Janeiro).
    There the fun is guaranteed.

  • The apartment is very nice and well located in Rio. We were able to get around easily. Andre was friendly and easy to work with. Well worth a visit.

  • The place is in old downtown area, close to a quite good commerce area called Saara, close to Central do Brasil where from you can go anywhere. It´s also a big place. André was very gentle.

    October 2011
  • The apartment was very comfortable and well-stocked, and Andre was very communicative and kind (even letting us leave our bags at his place for several nights while we travelled in other cities). Overall a nice experience indeed!

    August 2011
  • Andre could not have been kinder to us, he was so helpfull and welcoming. the apartment was absoluty spotless and fully equipped, he met us from the taxi and did his upmost to assist us in our stay. I would recomend him and his apartment to anyone, he went above and beyond for us, a really nice guy, thank you.
