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
We had the best time ever in Rio! We really thank Tanja and Alex for great holiday. We were welcomed with hugs and huge hospitality. Tanja and Alex even invited us to their private barbecue and we had the opportunity to meet their friends and family. Furthermore, they led us use their bath on the day of our return, which were greatly appreciated. We warmly recommend renting an apartment by Tanja and Alex!
The flat was great ! We really enjoyed the location of lapa for its numerous places to hear good music and have fun at night. Alex and Tanja are very welcoming.
Tanja and Alex were great hosts! They provided us with all the information we needed and even with a pre-paid cell phone to contact them at any time. We we got the best help with every 'problem' or question we had - for example where to buy the football jersey I wanted so much ... ;) The both of them and their lovely family even took us to a street carnival practice on the first night!!
We had an awesome time in spectacular Rio and will definitely come back!
Tanja and Alex are such a great hosts that it is hard to describe it in words! Very polite, easy going, funny, warm, helpful and extremely friendly! Do not miss the tips given by Tanja & Alex, where to go or what to do in Rio, because they are priceless!
Apartment is really nice arranged, very clean, colorful, with very good working air-condition, fast wi-fi, towels, equipped very well – you have everything you need during your stay.
Alex welcomed us with a little gift, beverages, phone - you can contact Tanja or Alex whenever you want and even if you are not going to do this, they will contact you to check how you deal with your first days in Rio :) Alex also gave us a tour around the neighborhood. Location is great, in the heart of Lapa, very close to touristic points in Center of Rio. Highly recommended, our best experience with airbnb so far!
P.S We are very lucky that we met you both guys and thank you for everything! Hugs
Tanja and Alex are super welcoming and made me feel at home. Little touches made the difference: a little gift, a pre-pay mobile phone to ensure safety, tips on the area and a good little chat.
These are great people, I'd stay here again for sure!
Everything worked out fine. My girlfriend showed up a lot earlier than I thought she would and Tanja greeted her with open arms. She also helped get me back my lost black berry!
tania and alex were so nice and helpful! they gave us a mobile
and kept us up to date with some
news about the nightlife. whenever we had questions they helped us out! we were also invited to leave our belongings after departure at their home(our plane
just left at
midnight) and were also able to take
shower at their place!
the flat itself is just like you see in the offer- small but adequat and clean!
the only thing i would recommend ist to bring some earplugs for the night because the house is rather keen-earing.
round the corner there are some "scary"people ( alcohol and drugs) but they never caused us any trouble.. moreover there is lots of police around. above this the area is really nice! metro and tons of restaurants and bars are in walking distance! it was a pleasure to get to know tania and alex:-) we would recommend staying there!
