The Space

Studio with air conditioning for daily reservation or in packages Rio - Buzios with Pousada Telhado and Pousada Alegravila in Buzios, or alone for a minimum of 3 nights in low season and 5 nights for High Season, Carnival and New Year.
One ambience, small kitchen, air conditioning, box spring bed, TV, DVD, internet (cable/ wifi connection), minibar, microwave, cofee maker.

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!

Fantastic Location:
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.
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.

Check In
  • Mauricio - THANK YOU SO MUCH. Excellent communication and instructions. Flat was exactly how it was advertised, was very safe and has the best sunrise view I have had in all my travels around the world. Great spot in Botafogo, very near the shopping centre (go to Emporium Pax restaurant on 7th floor for great food and view), bars, restaurants, small supermarket and metro stop. Also very easy to get a taxi to anywhere.Thank you! Jon and Lucy - June 2014

  • Mauricio's apartment is in the perfect location. We arrived late in the evening and went to get the key from Mrs Derly as directed but we were greeted by a lovely older gentlemen who gave us the key and some instructions (lucky that my mangled Spanish/French mix worked out!).

    The studio is simplistic and met our needs perfectly, we really only got there to shower, and sleep. It is very small so not good if you want to "hang out there". The view is worth a million and although very noisy, we slept with the window open every night and woke up to that view every morning.

  • O local é excelente, recomendo! A senhora Derly que nos recepciona é uma pessoa de bom coração e disponível. O apartamento oferece todas as necessidades para hospedagens temporárias na cidade. Há um shopping excelente ao lado do prédio, o metrô pertíssimo, linhas de transporte urbano logo em frente. Foi uma experiência incrível. Aliás, esta vista que aparece na janela é verdadeira, você não se arrepende!

  • Todo o processo, desde os contato inicial, as orientações, o check-in e o check-out, tudo foi tranquilo. O quarto é muito bem aparelhado, confortável e seguro, e a vista... Bom a vista é algo. A localização é muito boa, pois tem um shopping dos mais simpáticos do Rio de Janeiro na esquina, com todas as opções de alimentação necessárias, outros restaurantes muito bons muito próximos, ônibus na porta, ponto de táxi no shopping, seguro.

  • Das Appartment hält genau das ein, was es verspricht. Mir und meinem Reisebegleiter war vor allem der versprochene Blick auf den Zuckerhut wichtig. Dieser Blick war wirklich atemberaubend. Wir waren sehr beeindruckt. Aber auch das Appartment an sich war sehr angenehm: sauber, alle Geräte funktionsfähig, vergleichsweise schnelles Internet.
    Alle Fragen und Auskünfte wurden von Mauricio schnell und hilfreich beantwortet. Tausend Dank auch dafür :)
    Außerdem waren auch die Leute aus dem Haus sehr angenehm und hilfreich, trotz unserer mangelnen Sprachkenntnisse. Hat alles super geklappt!
    Also nochmal: tausend dank mauricio! :)

  • The flat is really as described. It's superbly located, equipped as described and reasonably maintained.

    The street below is incredibly noisy 24 hrs a day. The "airport like windows" shut off the noise, but also the airflow and turn the flat into a greenhouse. The AC emits the noise of an old tractor. With shut windows and AC off, this place turns into a steamy sauna within an hour. Light sleepers should take note.

    You may not need this in a warm place like Rio, but there's no hot shower - the electrically-heated shower provides at best a "colder lukewarm" water. And only for the first two minutes of use.

    At the time of visit, the whole house was undergoing maintenance. At the entrance, it looked like someone threw in a grenade and the construction noise was omnipresent from early morning till late evening. Only one of the elevators worked. Make sure you clarify this with Mauricio before booking.

    Response from Mauricio:

    Thank you very much for your remarks Michal. It really helped us fixing the air conditioning noise and shower issues. Unfortunately the refurbishing of the building - like the whole city - will last till the World Cup but we will certainly offer a much better place when finished. Hope to see you back to check the improvements!

  • Mauricio was very helpful as I needed to get in touch with a local phone number in Rio and he was willing to be the intermediary. Mauricio also allowed us flexibility in our leave time to accommodate our flight time.
    The view is as good or better as it looks in the pictures. The location worked will for us.

  • El apartamento cumple con lo publicado y la vista es mil veces mejor cuando estás allá. Fue muy amable al facilitarme un departamento ante mi arribo anticipado y no tuvimos ningún tipo de queja. Excelente ubicación, se consigue de todo cerca y pasan cualquier cantidad de rutas de buses y el metro queda a 3 cuadras. Lo recomiendo plenamente.
