Comfy, well decorated, spacious and quiet bedroom in a cool up market green area. Near all types of facilities and easy access to public transport and rental bikes!
Nice cool big bedroom with internet in a well decorated flat at the green up-scale neighbourhood of Jardim Botânico.
Only few minutes walking to to the Lagoon, Botanical Gardens or Parque Lage. Leblon and Ipanema beaches are a few minutes away by bus.
Within walking distance to bus stops, restaurants, bars, cafés, supermarkets, banks, post-office, pharmacies, gyms, and convenience stores.
There are malls, cinemas and theatres in adjoining neighbourhoods. The access to rental bicycles is also very easy in the area.
The Rio de Janeiro is the main tourist destination in Latin America, with its tropical climate, landscapes and cultural icon known worldwide. The exuberant nature Rio includes 90 km of beaches, the Tijuca National Park and Botanico Garden, home to one of the largest urban forests in the world with 3200 hectares of Atlantic Forest and the beautiful Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, among other wonders, like the Christ Redeemer and enjoy the look of the Sugar Loaf.
Interaction with Guests
As much as they need
It is green, very safe near two beautiful parks and the Lagoa.
Other Things to Note
It is quite a big bedroom and the photo shows a single bed but it has a arger bed now. It can have an extra bed if necessary.
No smoking and be sensible...
Ludmila is simply a fantastic host. She is super-friendly, super-accomodating, and very helpful with advice about Rio. The apartment is artistic, clean, comfortable, and pretty spacious, and the neighborhood is safe and close by to many things - Ipanema and Copacabana are a (somewhat) short walk (though I tend to walk long distances, so please check). Ludmila helped me every step of the way, and because of her I greatly enjoyed my time in Rio.
I had the pleasure of staying 2 weeks in Ludmila’s lovely apartment. Located between the Jardim Botanico and Parke Lage, it only takes 5 minutes to relax in the shades of a tropical rain forest. Or, if you rather go to the beach, numerous busses take you there in approximately 15-20 minutes. Safety is definitely a big issue in Rio, but in the Javier Botanico district I never had any worries going out during the night.
The room itself is very calm and spacious, and exactly as promised by the pictures here on airbnb, except that there is now a bigger bed inside. And it is in a lovely Indian style, like almost the whole of the apartment’s interior.
Ludmila herself is very helpful and is always willing to assist with her knowledge about Rio and Brazil in general.
All in all I can wholeheartedly recommend this apartment. Don’t be put off by the small number of reviews, you will not regret it. :)
Prepare yourself to one of the most amazing place, you will ever been. I know this review will only higher your expectations, but the level of details for personality in this apartment is unprecedented. Ludmila of course is a well traveled woman from Brazil, and that is very well represented in the apartment. I always have hesitation about going for one room rather than entire apartment, but Ludmila is such a pleasant roommate. This apartment can easily be a airbnb "featured" or even in apartmenttherapy the blog.
