Monica was an excellent host. The apartment is just as described and pictured, and Monica wrote me a long e-mail explaining all of the features of the neighborhood. Lapa is a wonderful destination in Rio. The apartment is well located, close to restaurants and bars, but quiet, since it faces away from the traffic. And secure. Highly recommended !!!! I got a wonderful welcome and send-off.
Merci à Monica et sa Maman, deux personnes très sympathiques.
Nous avons passé une belle semaine à Rio de Janeiro.
Une première pour nous d'utiliser ce site. Nous avons pas été déçu. L'appartement est très bien et très complet. Il est bien situé.
Nous le recommandons à tous sans (website hidden) plaisir de revenir un jour.
Nice little apartment. Great to live between friendly brasilieros. In walking distance of the attractions of Lapa. Very friendly and helpful hosts mom. Lots of helpful infos from Monica.
It was a great pleasure to stay at Monica's flat. Although Monica was not in Brasil at the time, she was extremely quick to reply to any emails and questions we had. She gave great recommendations on things to do, and alternate ways to do things. Being first time travellers to Brasil, and speaking little portuguese, she was so helpful in making our time there comfortable and stress free. Monica's mother lives in Rio and we were lucky enough to meet her on a few occasions. She also was very nice and helpful.
The flat itself was exactly as advertised, and was in a nice part of Santa Teresa. We took city transit to the beaches, and metro a couple of times as well. The advice and directions Monica gave regarding transit were dead on. The bed was clean and quite comfortable.
We highly recommend Monica and this flat. We hope to travel back to Brasil one day to meet Monica and take her and her mom out for being such great hosts!
Desde o primeiro momento que tive um óptimo relacionamento com a Mónica, foi muito simpática e querida em todos os aspectos.
Senti bastante apoio e segurança mesmo antes de chegar na casa. A comunicação foi bastante fácil e a Mónica sempre facilitou tudo. Quando chegámos conhecemos a sua mãe Horaci que foi um amor de pessoa, estava esperando por nós e nos acolheu muito bem deixando-nos super à vontade!! Tinhamos manga no frizer e tudo :)
Fomos muito bem recebidos!
Senti que o prédio e a zona eram bastante seguras, foi muito fácil a movimentação atraves dos transportes públicos. A casa fica muito perto da zona mais badalada da Lapa. Nunca tivemos receio nem problemas na zona. Tem muitos restaurantes e supermercados na zona.
A casa em si estava bastante limpa e arrumada, cama super confortavel e senti-me bastante em casa.
No final a D.Horaci ainda nos levou no aeroporto sempre muito bem disposta e tratado-nos como familiares.
Obrigada por tudo!
Being at Monica´s was the feeling of staying at home, the house was really clean and everything worked really well with the communication and relationship with her sweet mother.
The area surrounding is full of supermarkets, big shops and restaurants, in 10 minutes walk we were at "arcos da Lapa" and "Selaron stairs".
We loved the convenience and safety of the neighborhood.
I really recomend Monica as a great host!!!
Hope to repeat it!
Monica is a very helpful host, she gave us so many tips and information before we even reached the apartment!
Nous avons passé un bon séjour dans l'appart de Monica.
Il est très bien situé, dans le quartier de LAPA, qui bouge, et est bien (website hidden)ès bon accueil de Horaci.
Dans l'appart, il y avait une panière de fruits (mangues, ananas ...) appréciable !!
The flat in Lapa is small but cozy and in an interesting neighborhood. We had a nice stay especially because of Monica - she can really make you feel welcome even though she wasn't there in person. She was eager to provide information about anything we were interested in and then some, making life easy for us. The only real downside was the WiFi which was actually just a shared GPRS connection and thus no good to anything but the occasional email.
Thanks for your feedback. The Internet connection we have is actually advertised as it is. What we have is a 3G private network (not GPRS!), and it isn't shared. It is a shame that you didn't inform us that you were having issues with it as we would have done something to fix it.
Adorei! Era tudo que eu esperava. A Mônica é muito atenciosa e está sempre disponível e pronta para responder aos emails. Isso facilita muito. A d. Horaci também é muito gentil e atenciosa. O ap. é muito bem localizado, perto da Lapa, com ônibus na porta para todos os cantos da cidade. O ap. é bem pequenininho, mas está todo reformado e tem tudo que a gente precisa. E tudo isso com um preço bem camarada.
I had a lovely stay at Monica's place. The flat was cosy, sweet and clean. The flat was in good place, because nearby there are good shops, especially of fruits, also there is bakery, gym and good places for eating and drinking. The bus stop was just 2 minutes from flat, so it is easy to reach all areas of Rio. Monica and her mother are amazing hosts! Her mother is extremely friendly and i enjoyed her company very much. Monica gave me great tips about what to do in Rio. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone who wants to stay in Rio! Special thanks for Monica's mother:)
