In the middle of the coolest spot in Rio, this accomodation it's just perfect for whom want to enjoy to the fullest this city! Paolo and Isa are just great and let you feel at your own place, giving privacy and precious suggestions to discover the city in the best way.
Furthermore, the place is close to the Metro station (5 mins walking), bus to all city spots, and in the evening you could just go out and have a walk in the charming neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
I really reccomend this accomodation.
Delightful. We were so lucky to stay 7 nights with Isa and Paolo during the World Cup. Our hosts were generous, kind and very welcoming. Already missing Rio and the lovely home of Isa and Paolo. It was such a nice way to leave Rio with Paolo dropping us to the airport and waving us off. Same as all other reviews, highly recommended.
Absolutely great hosts and room! Not much more to add beyond what's already been said.
Please note that the location is about a 20 minute walk + metro ride away from the beach.
We spent two nights here and we love the house! Bedroom with private bathroom on the first floor and kitchen downstairs. 10 min to the Metro subway, local restaurants and stores. Special thanks to Paolo & Isa for helping us arrange the airport pick up with our early flight arrival at 5am and allow us to check in early so that we can take a good nap after the long flight from California/USA to Rio. Paolo also made very good suggestions of the visiting points, especially the special restaurant with live band and impressive decoration at the Lapa district nearby. Their dog Lorinha is very cute and friendly too. We really enjoyed the time with them!
Muito prazer de conhecer Paolo e Isa! Everything that has been written so far in the reviews should already explain why staying with Isa and Paolo is an excellent decision to make! A perfect stay. Beijinhos to them both x
Great place with nice location. Walking distance to Lapa, Gloria, Santa Teresa and Centro. From Gloria metro is is easy to go the beaches and visit other places in Rio. Breakfast is delicious. Isa and Paolo are very nice and gives you great tips and directions what to do.
