Other Things to Note
TWO Important reasons to stay here:
1) Lapa and Santa Teresa are the preferred neibohoods for foreigners and tourists. Very close of the best museums and the cultural city life of the city.
2) You can get to anywhere in Rio any time. You'll be right in the middle of the Rio's life, so there will be public transportation available at all times even in early morning hours (subway operates until midnight).

Debora is a fantastic host, and the room is great for a short stay in Rio in the perfectly located Lapa neighborhood ! recommended !
The room is quite small and simple, but is in the heart of the center of Rio. Just outside the room is a nice terrace to chill out. The sink is
outside the room.
To reach the terrace and room, you first have to go through the flat of the hosts.
The room is equipped with a fridge and air condition.
Eventhough the location is probably prettty quiet (because the room faces the terrace), during carneval season it was noisy (there would probably be no place in Rio that is silent during that time).
To reach the house, it is necessary to do a short hike upwards - not all taxis like to take you directly to the house. The hosts were always friendly and very helpful! They answered all our
questions and gave us many good advices. Thank you!
Eu e meu namorado reservamos o quarto por um final de semana. Quando chegamos, no sábado, a Debora foi super solícita, esperou que chegássemos (o voo atrasou um pouco) e mostrou como tudo funcionava na casa, incluindo as chaves e as regras de hospedagem. O quarto e o banheiro estavam super limpos e organizados e não tivemos problema algum, tudo funcionou perfeitamente.
Uma pena que, por termos pouco tempo no Rio, ficamos fora durante a maior parte dos dois dias e, por isso, não tivemos muito contato com os anfitriões. Tínhamos um show no domingo à noite no Maracanã e, de lá, pretendíamos pegar um táxi direto para o aeroporto. Liguei para a Debora no domingo à tarde, antes de sairmos, uma vez que ela tinha ido para a casa do pai dela, e ela foi super compreensiva com a situação, explicando como faríamos para devolver as chaves e tudo mais. O quarto é bem localizado, a poucos minutos de caminhada dos arcos da Lapa. Em uma próxima oportunidade, espero que possamos pegar dicas da cidade e trocar experiências com os donos da casa.

Deborah made me feel really welcome in Rio and spent time helping me understand the area and the different options available to me to travel around and explore. She was always on hand to make sure my needs were taken care of. We spent some time chatting and sharing stories and on a few occasions she drove me around to introduce me to tourist attractions in their neighborhood. The apartment is a safe-haven in the centre of Lapa and it was easy to explore the city from their apartment.
Experience with Host's Mother who received us on day 1: She was friendly and professional, she showed us around, said we could use the kitchen for water and the larger bathroom upstairs
Experience with Host: the host (Debora) arrived on day 3 of our stay. She came in and told us not to use the bathroom or kitchen as it would disrupt her own family's activities. This was extremely inconvenient as we did not have access to drinking water. She was also somewhat rude and did not display any customer-service
On the last day, we complained that we were not able to flush the toilet or take a hot shower in the bathroom assigned to us (attached to room). She responded saying everything worked fine, when in reality it did not! She asked if she could enter our room when we were out to check the condition of the toilet and shower. Since we had personal valuable belongings in the room, we said we preferred if she did not enter the room in our absence. However she disregarded this and entered the room in our absence. We know this because she turned the AC off, when we left it on.
About the listing: the place is in the nice neighbourhood of Lapa/Santa Teresa...good nightlife, and restaurants. However the pictures make it look deceptively nicer than it actually is. The room was clean, but there were 3 sets of stairs to climb up and down with luggage, which is not mentioned here. The keys to the 3 doors to enter our room did not work properly. Also the shower never had hot water, the toilet never flushed properly and the toilet seat was not firm and constantly fell downwards even when being used.
The entrance to the house surprised us as it was covered in grafiti and looked extremely run down.
All of this, would have been fine, if the host exhibited good customer service and did not give us attitude.
I would not recommend Debora's listing. She also charged us exorbitantly. I am currently staying at another airbnb listing in the Botofago neighbourhood and it's lovely (priced far better too)!! Having stayed at many airbnb listings in the US and Brazil, this one was highly unsatisfactory!
Shilpa and her friend stayed in our house during the brazil world cup. I wasnt at home when she arrived, my mother received her and showed evrything. My mother made a mistake and said her that she could use my bathroom and the kitchen, but they didn't and this is discribed on the announcement rules. The suite wich shilp booked is very private and independent, we prepered this room to be like that, and every guest which I received in my house understand, like and respect this. So when I arrived home, my house was full of sand including my room and my baby room. My bathroom that they where using, was a completely mess and there was a lot of sand inside like a beach. They are not only using my bathroom they are also so disrespecting with me and my family! I prepered everything to receive shilpa and her friend and they didn't care about our arriving at home. About the stairs, its discribed with precision in the announce, I didn't understand why they where so suprised. The pictures of the room where made by an airbnb photographer so it is certified by the site.
Stay at a airbnb accomodation is not the same to be in a hotel and I think that they probably want to be in a economic place and didint understood the airbnb principles.
We love to receive guests in our house, and we always try to do the best way to be a wonderfull experience for everybody, including me and my family. Airbnb experience is not only an economic way to travel, it's a way to live a different experience during the travel. Travellers who wants to fell and cheer how is been carioca are always very welcome in our house!
Débora's place is lovely and super surprising: located on the foot of Santa Teresa hills in the souterrain of the building you'll find a beautifully refurbished apartment on 2 levels overlooking the centre of Rio. The lower level owns the huge terrace with a sweet cabanon that you can call your own for the period of your stay. Débora is an inspiring and communicative person on a really enjoyable level.
Following some of her tips and suggestions for Rio we ended up having a great time visiting her friend and his cultural centre in Complexo do alemão.
Thanks again for such a pleasurable stay and for all the effort and motivation you have transmitted.
Best Anne + Sebastian
I have stayed 4 days at debora's place and it was very satisfying! The room is clean and comfort. Everything works and as you go down streets you can find very nice restaurants and bars! And the location is also very central witch makes it very easy and cheap to go to places all over rio! Many walking distance places to visit! Debora is really nice and friendly and enjoys to talk and chance views on everything but also respect privacy. I certainly recommend her house for you to stay in rio!!!
