Excelente ubicación y maravillosa vista. Todo está muy cerca si te quedas aquí. El edificio es un poco antiguo pero muy seguro, el departamento es limpio y las cosas funcionan a la perfección sobre todo el aire acondicionado (incluso hay plancha), salvo por la puerta de la ducha que no cierra bien pero es algo menor. La gente es muy amable.
Volvería de todas maneras.
I shouldn't make too much p.r. for the Studio, since i wanna find it empty, when i surely wanna return one day ;o)
Mauricio's flat is well located in Botafogo area with amazing views of the Sugar Loaf and the Harbour, nice view to wake up in the morning. There's a Metro station 5 mins away from the flat too. We were a bit concerned about the car traffic (16 lanes) outside the flat but after the first night, we realised you can't hear anything at all.
The flat itself is cozy and well equipped. We didn't do any cooking during our stay apart from coffees in the morning.
We were looked after by Mr. Francisco and Mrs.Delry, the next door neighbours where you pick up the keys on arrival. We had an issue with the door and both of them were very happy to help. By the way, Mrs. Derly can organise homemade lunch for you if you speak to her in advance.
Before we booked this place, we read other peoples feedback about the general appearance of the lobby and other areas in the building, It is a bit run down, however after the first day you won't notice it anymore. Please do not let this put you off as everyone in the building we met was nice and friendly.
Overall, great location, amazing views, great transport connections and comfortable place. We highly recommend this place!!
El departamento perfecto, todo muy arreglado y limpio. Fuimos recibidos y despedidos en forma muy cálida y eficiente. Inmejorable ubicación, tranquilo y seguro. Recomiendo 100%
O apartamento é como aparece no anúncio. Fica numa localização ótima, num bairro que tem grandes vantagens para o viajante pois permite fácil acesso aos mais variados bairros. A vista é incrível. No mesmo quarteirão temos diversas linhas de ônibus, aluguel de bicicleta, taxi, bancos, lanchonetes e restaurantes. O metrô fica pertíssimo. O edifício é antigo, com muitos apartamentos por andar, o que não causa uma boa impressão de cara, mas nada que tenha causado algum incômodo. Mauricio instalou janelas que realmente isolam o barulho externo (afinal estamos numa avenida muito movimentada, relativamente perto do aeroporto Santos Dumont): tranquilidade garantida. O anfitrião foi muito rápido e atencioso na comunicação.
The apartment has a great location and one gets a great view of the Sugar Loaf from the window. The Building is safe and is guarded 24 hours. Plenty of restaurants and shopping areas around the apartment. Taxi's and public buses available just outside the apartment.
Primeiramente, a vista do apartamento é simplesmente linda. Ficamos em 4 pessoas e foi super tranquilo. O prédio é antigo, mas o apartamento está em ótimas condições. Não é grande mas é bem confortável. Ótima localização, com supermercados, restaurantes, bancos, pontos de ônibus, etc, bem perto. A Sra. Derly foi muito simpática e o Maurício sempre muito prestativo, mesmo à (website hidden) voltar ao Rio com certeza voltarei a me hospedar no apartamento.
Appartement simple et fonctionnel situé dans un quartier très agréable.
First things first: the view is freaking amazing!! I spent a week there and woke up early in the morning everyday just to see the sunrise near the Sugar Loaf. This alone is already worth the money! Location is also perfect, bus-stops in front of the building and the subway is a 5 min walk at the most. The building is very old and need a lot of work, but the neighbours are so friendly that after a couple days you don't even notice the problems of the building anymore. Also Rua Voluntarios da Patria is full of nice bars for those who fancy a meal/beer at night within a walking distance, which made our days perfect.
Mauricio is a great and very helpful host. Definitely recommend it!
The view from the window is the BEST thing...you really are in Rio de Janeiro each morning when you open the curtains! The flat is a handy size and really well-located on Praia de Botafogo...handy for getting about Rio as the bus-stops are just outside the front-door and the underground station is about a five-minute walk (website hidden) is also well-placed for Santos Dumont airport which we flew into.
The downside was that the flat needs a little updating in general, as do the common-parts to the building. The corridors, lift-areas etc were not pleasant. Inside, the TV was really small and high-up on the wall as if in hospital. Also the cooking facilities were limited. Also, there's no washing-machine.
Despite these few grumbles, we enjoyed our stay in the (email hidden)e location being our main (email hidden)d the view was just wonderful every morning. If you are planning a short stay...this place will do fine!
