About this listing
An arty and cozy studio flat in residential Lapa, perfect for a couple, in a quiet side street. The apartment is on the second flor, with a window towards the street`s greenery.
The apartment is brand new, from the modern furniture, wardobe to freshly painted walls, american kitchen with a red brick bar and a bathroom. The bed is new and meets hotel criteria. There is an Air-Con, a fan and internet connection. The building has a 24 hours doorman.
-It is 5 min. walking from Cinelandia Metro station, where you can enjoy the Municipal Theatre, The National Library, Cinelandia Square, Odeon Theatre Café, The Municipality Building, etc.
-It is also 5 min. walking from Gloria metro station, and, if you continue walking for 10 min. along Catete street, you will get to Museu da Republica. If you cross the street towards the sea, you will find yourself walking or biking around Aterro, a huge park that runs along Flamengo beach with heaps of trees from all over the world. Absolutely fantastic!
And, all of this within walking distance!
-If you walk for 15 minutes, right after Cinelandia, you will find yourself in the Business centre, right on Carioca metro Station, from where you walk for 5 min, to the famous Cathedral in a shape of Mexican pyramid.
-Would you like to get to know the famous staircase built by Selarion from Chile? It is only a couple of minutes walk from the place where you are staying.
- If you want to enjoy the famous Lapa`s Night life, just turn left on the way out of your quiet street. Do not forget to visit Rio Scenario, the most authentic Brazilian music club in Rio. Just 15 min. from our place.
-You are in Copacabana in 10 min and Ipanema in 17 min by metro.
Posto 8 or 9 is where you want to go to if you want to feel real Rio.
And, more important than anything else, I and Alex are always available to help you out!!!
I hope you enjoy your stay.
I hope you like the state of our flat. Let`s leave it nice and neat for everybody else, and, who knows for you if you decide to visit us again!
You should also keep in mind that the flat is in a residential building and there is a silence rule after 10.00 pm. While going through the main gate and walking around the building`s common space you should not be without a T-shirt or in a swimming costume.
Thanks a have a great stay,
Tanja and Alex
Fomos muito bem recebidos por Tanja e Alex, que nos deram todas as informações necessárias para nossa estadia no Rio de Janeiro. O apto é muito aconchegante, limpo e confortável. Fica no coração do bairro da Lapa e próximo do metrô e do comércio local. Agradecemos pela acolhida e por terem contribuído para que a nossa estadia fosse um sucesso. Super recomendo!
Tudo correu perfeitamente bem, o Alex nos recebeu de forma muito atenciosa e afetuosa, nos apresentou alguns lugares para frequentar próximos ao apto e nos esperou, mesmo chegando um pouco fora do horário combinado e tbm nos presenteou com uma lembrança carinhosa. A Tanja sempre foi muito rápida e atenciosa nas mensagens trocadas e foi flexível no check-out. O apto estava limpo, organizado, bem equipado, decorado, arejado, fresco, funcional e seguro, o ar-condicionado funcionou perfeitamente (fresquinho e silencioso). O prédio é antigo, mas conservado, com porteiro 24 horas. A rua é tranquila, de fácil acesso e muito próxima à Escadaria Selarón, dos Arcos da Lapa e da principal rua de bares e restaurantes do bairro. A Lapa mantém sua arquitetura intacta e por ser um bairro boêmio e histórico, a mistura cultural e social é muito grande, o que torna a região ainda mais interessante. Nossa experiência foi muito positiva. Voltaremos!
Tanja,'s appartment is cute and comfortable. It is perfectly located. Furthermore, Tanja was very kind with us, she did all she could to make our stay perfect.
Tanja and Alex were great hosts! The apartment, while small has pretty much everything you need. It is really well located in the city-close to the metro, multiple bus lines that will take you to all the important places. Lapa is a great area as well. At night you can hear the live music coming from the small bars just down the street. Tanja and Alex were also super helpful and always happy to give us tips and ideas on things to visit, whether close by or in other areas of the city! Really was so helpful and appreciated. The place was also very clean and tidy and felt welcoming coming back to after a long day out in the city. Please email us if you are ever visiting Toronto!!
We had the most amazing time in Lapa and a perfect stay at Tanja and Alex's apartment. The apartment is clean, secure, well-appointed and perfectly located in a vibrant and edgy neighborhood.
The best part of our stay was getting to meet Tanja, Alex, and the adorable Milla :) They are a beautiful family who went out of their way to help us- giving heaps of fantastic tips and recommendations, letting us use their printer when we needed to quickly print out documents, and even inviting us over for a barbecue on our last night in Rio. Their hospitality and helpfulness made our trip to Brazil so memorable.
If you are planning a trip to Rio you MUST stay here!!
The hosts are awesome! I do advise everyone to stay at one of their apartments because it is clean, well located, hosts give you a warm welcome and good information.
Thank you Alex, Tanja & Mila for your hospitality!
You guys rock!
Tanja and Alex were amazing! They were extremely attentive - Alex showed us round the apartment and took us round the neighborhood, they provided a local mobile phone to contact them with and were easily available by email and gave us so many tips and reccommendations by email. The apartment is beautiful and ideally located in the area, and is an ideal base to see rio from. And you get a pair of bicycles to explore Rio on!
