The space

I am offering you a room with a doubble window in the charming rooftop apartment of a manuelite castle.
The apartment has 2 living rooms and a big terrace. It now features 2 bathrooms, a small one on the terrace and a bigger, round one inside one of the towers.
From the terrace that is flanked by 2 towers (!) you have a high view over Rio de Janeiro , and spectacular sundowns. There is nice gardens in front of the house. My place is on the main street of Santa Teresa, about 4 min footwalk from the main square with all the major bars and the cinema. The bus to the metro stops in front of my house and takes about 8 min to the metro station. And the kitchen is on the terace, so y'all can cook with a view! WiFi, washing machine.
In Santa Tereza, the trend-neighbourhood of Rio de Janeiro.
With all transport in front of the house, and restaurants and shops on the same street.
Free mountainspring water for guests, best quality!

Andreas was a wonderful host and extremely helpful in providing us with advice on what to see in Rio and how to get there. The Santa Teresa neighborhood is charming and we greatly enjoyed staying here. It is about a 15 minute walk to Gloria, where one can take the metro or find a cab. The area is close to Lapa. By cab, the neighborhood is about 15 minutes from Copacabana and 20 minutes from Ipanema.

As a first time AirBnB user and Rio traveler, the bar has been set very high. I can not say enough good about Andreas and his oasis. He has mastered the fine art of being a gracious and welcoming yet unobtrusive host. The apt itself is so charming with wonderful artistic touches that add to the romanticism of the city. Enjoying evening dinners and morning coffees on the terrace was as much a joy as exploring the beautiful city itself. Though remote, the Santa Teresa neighborhood quickly became my favorite and I'm positive that Andreas and his beautiful home had everything to do with it. Through him, my boyfriend and I got to know the city in a way we never would have as mere tourists and the experience made us both positive that we would be back (and hopefully sooner than later).

We spent five fantastic days in the small imperial castle. This place are amazing with creative owner`s style. Located on the hill with fantastic view over the Rio. Even if you are not fancy walker, we will suggest to walk up, down and criss cross over Santa Teresa, it is absolutely gorgeous place. Andreas is very welcoming, friendly, honest, helpful and simple a best host. If you have any question, need advice or help you can ask him anything. You can definitely rely on him!!! You will love the small imperial castle, if you are person with adventure spirit. Million Thanks to Andreas :)

Andreas has a nice apartment in a quiet area. It is also easy to reach the center and all the sightseeing things. You have an awesome view of Rio and Andreas is a really friendly & helpful person. Andreas and his apartment made our trip to Rio special and it was a good experience. If you like an adventure in a quiet part of Rio, you should visit Andreas. :)

Great time in Rio staying at Andreas'. His flat is really nice and well located (the pictures are to be trusted, it's exactly what's expecting you), and Andreas himself is worth knowing!
