Logement tres convenable pour un groupe de 7/8 personnes desirant utiliser un pied a terre entre coppa cabana et ipanema. Le quartier est assez pauvre et une favela se trouve juste derriere le building donc cela pose un peu des problemes pour ceux qui souhaitent de balader dans la rue surtout apres le coucher du soleil. L accueil par les employes en charge de l entretien et la garde de l immeuble etait top ! Prevoir un peu de liquide pour le supplement de consommation electrique (clim + ventilateurs = consommation massive d e lectricite !).
I'm very pleased that you have enjoyed the apartment and his location.
About the community is a part of Rio and like you have confirmed, in reality, the apartment is in a very secure, calm and high standard area.
I understand that your problem was the high consumption of electricity due to the working, of the all air conditioners all day but that was your option.
Un departamento muy confortable y con excelente ubicación entre Ipanema y Leblon, fuimos un grupo de 6 amigos y la pasamos increíble!! Ya llevamos dos años seguidos yendo en la misma fecha y todo impecable! Sin duda volveremos y agradecer a Diogo por su excelente recepción y preocupación ! Saludos desde Chile
Diogo was a great host, reachable on his cell phone whenever we called. He accommodated our early arrival, greeting us at the entrance and arranging for us to safely leave our bags with the building's doorman until we could enter the apartment in the afternoon. He was also very helpful with getting us oriented, providing tips on transportation, the neighborhood and sights around town. The apartment comfortably accommodated all seven of us, with plenty of bathrooms and bedrooms in the truly spacious flat. The neighborhood is great, wedged between Ipanema and Copacabana beaches, which are only 5-15 minutes walking distance. On the hill behind the apartment is a favela that colors the neighborhood. There was steady police presence at its entrance at the bottom of the hill, and it seemed like a luxury favela that did not raise any security or safety concerns. There are supermarkets, bars and restaurants within a short walking distance, and the apartment is right next to a metro stop that makes access to central Rio de Janeiro very convenient. Diogo was also very helpful as we checked-out, arranging for us to once again leave our luggage in the building and helping us get cabs to the airport for our evening flight. We couldn't think of a better place to stay during our visit!
Tudo foi como combinado. O apartamento é exatamente como nas fotos e muito bem localizado. Diogo é atencioso e educado. Recomendo.
Perfecte communicatie tijdens het traject. Diogo was zelf aanwezig om ons welkom te heten. Daarbij gaf hij een rondleiding in het huis en tips over restaurants in de buurt. Het huis is compleet, ruim, mooi licht en goed onderhouden. Een perfecte locatie!
Myself and group of friends had a great time in Rio staying in Diogo's apartment. The apartment was very spacious and was in a great location being close to both copacabana and ipanema beach, as well as the metro for travelling further afield.
Diogo was a great host and helped with various things I asked for. We needed to add an extra person to the group which was no problem and Diogo also allowed us to check-in an hour early which was very helpful to our group.
Unfortunately I didn't get to meet Diogo in person due to my flight times but others in my group did and reported back about how nice he was with them
After having had the misfortune to have received a series of terrible groups, it was with great satisfaction that I was lucky to get your group.
Unfortunately I have not had the pleasure of knowing you personally, but hopefully in the future it might happen.
For my part I just have to thank and wish all the best to everyone.
Come back soon!
This is a really well situated apartment, close to Copacabana and quite close to Ipanema. It is extremely convenient for General Osorio metro station. It is spacious, and having a doorman is great when you have lots of people staying. The main living areas are stylish and comfortable. The WiFi is fast and stretches through the whole apartment.
There are a couple of major disadvantages. On Friday and Saturday nights there is a massive all night dance party occurring in the favela directly behind the apartment. The music is extremely loud and continues until 7am. We all ended up sleeping on the couches in the TV room and the main room on the two weekends we stayed.
The condition of the apartment overall is not great. The bedrooms, kitchen, and bathrooms are a little grotty, with exposed bulbs, poor paintwork, broken window frames etc. The towels, bed linen and bath mats are low quality. Some parts of the apartment are extremely dark. The kitchen is poorly equipped, so that is is difficult to cook even a basic meal.
We were four "singles" and a couple, expecting to use all five main bedrooms. Slightly annoyingly, although we booked for 6 people, the owners left two bedrooms locked, so that we unexpectedly had to share. Maybe there was a miscommunication, but we felt somewhat bilked on this.
Overall this is a reasonable value apartment, with some obvious drawbacks that would have been clear from close scrutiny of the previous reviews.
I have to ask you if you stayed in my apartment because what you commented ,don't have anything with the reality.
Your problem is about the small bedroom ( the old bedroom of the cleaning lady that is locked ) because it's only used when the group is larger, that 8 persons like you can see in the site of the apartment.
You wanted to put inside the apartment more people but unfortunately you have to respect the number of persons of the reserve
About the 2 bedrooms locked, like you have tell, you are completely wrong, you used 4 bedrooms and only the 5th bedroom ( the old bedroom of the cleaning lady) stay locked.
If you used 4 bedrooms and have two locked, is not the same apartment because only exist 5 bedrooms, maybe you had gone to another apartment.
Unfortunately some persons have to make bad comments when for some reason they think that they are impaired.
I have only to tell you, that be more honest and don't return to that apartment, that you commented.
Thanks and best regards.
