About this listing
This cozy studio will take you from the start with the fantastic view to the Sugar Loaf and Botafogo Bay but also feel a true "carioca" neighborhood - markets, bars, restaurants - even a mall on the corner - and transportation for anywhere in Rio
This is one of our four apartments offering this amazing view that will make you really feel you are in Rio!
One room apartment facing Botafogo Beach and Sugar Loaf. All furnished. Air conditioning, confortable double bed and sofa bed, TV, DVD, wifi internet. Small kitchen equipped with minibar, microwave, coffee maker.
WE HAVE JUST INSTALLED AIRPORT LIKE WINDOWS.
We have had two reviews about noise from the street and agreed that it must have been really disturbing for people not used to a noisy city like Rio. Now you can enjoy this unforgettable view in total silence too!
The building is simple, from the fifties, but offers doormen and security 24 hours.
At Botafogo Praia Shopping Mall block, large offer of good restaurants, supermarkets, cafeterias, and 16 movie theaters. Please note that the entrance of the building is now under restoration - it will be beautiful one day but by now ground floor does not look good. It will not interfere with your stay at all as stated in our reviews.
Transportation to and from everywhere in Rio de Janeiro on your door and subway at 3 blocks (Botafogo station). Metro to downtown or Copacabana and Ipanema.
Ten minutes from downtown, 5 minutes from Copacabana (or 15 minutes walk), Rio Sul Shopping Mall, Sugar Loaf, Aterro do Flamengo, 20 minutes to Jardim Botânico, Lagoa, Leblon, Ipanema.

Excellent location! Close to all major attractions in Rio and offering transportation for everywhere in Rio just in front of our building and metro station at 2 blocks.
Totally safe area. Plenty of shops, restaurants, super markets, even an 8 floors Shopping Mall on the corner.
Bike Rio station in front.
Besides the fantastic view for the bay and Sugar Loaf that is all around we are connected to the very center of Rio by a large park starting in front of us and going through Botafogo beach, Flamengo beach, Rio's Marina, Modern Art museum ending at Santos Dumont airport, all surrounded by a beautiful green area designed by Burle Marx. I love taking a bike at the station in front of our building and enjoy the park, reaching downtown in 20 minutes. Then leave the bike at the ferry station to Niterói and cross the square to visit Paço Imperial and cultural centers of Banco do Brasil and Correios, all offering galeries and other cultural atractions, the old streets of central Rio and Museu de Belas Artes. Have a beer or fresh fruit juice and get back the same way facing the Corcovado and the sea of Guanabara bay at sunset. Unforgetable.
Being an important avenue you will find trasportation for anywhere in Rio in front of our building. Subway station Botafogo is at 2 blocks.
A large offer of commerce, movie theaters, restaurants is available on the blocks around, including an 8 stories shopping mall on the corner.
