About This Listing
Fully equipped apartment in the heart of Lapa, the nightlife of the city, near to everything you need and an exclusive guide that I made to help my guests. 10 Mega wifi internet.
Safe and modern apartment in the 7th floor of a building with a 24 hour doorman.
Although located in the heart of the nightlife of Rio, there is very little noise from the street, as the apartment is situated in the rear of the building.
It can be found in the best part of Lapa, between the two main streets of the neighborhood: Mem de Sá and Riachuelo.
Bars, restaurants, supermarket, bakery, pharmacy... all just outside of the building. Everything that you need is nearby and there is easy access to public transportation, 24 hours a day.
The apartment has a bedroom with an air conditioning, desk, closet and two single beds that can be used together - they are connected with a tight thick cover which makes the space between them disappears.
In the living room you can find a collection of Brazilian DVDs (originals, with English or Spanish subtitles), a LED TV, a frigobar and a sofa that turns into a bed.
American-style kitchen, fully equipped:
washing machine, stove, blender, microwave, coffee maker, grill and water filter.
Bathroom with an electric hot shower and hairdryer. Liquid soap, shampoo and towels are provided.
The Artistic House was designed and decorated with total uniqueness by the artist Aline Campbell - the owner of the place.
Features murals, adorned ceiling and artwork everywhere!
Live, eat and breathe Art.

I had the BEST experience staying at Aline's - this apartment is absolutely beautiful and Aline's hosting skills are awesome. The apartment is exactly as described - it is well appointed, very welcoming, in a safe building with a doorman, and in an excellent location in Lapa very near markets and restaurants. Aline is a gracious and responsive host who knows exactly how to make a traveler feel comfortable and welcome in her beautiful city. Every single aspect of this apartment is perfect, I highly recommend it and will definitely stay here again when I return to Rio.
Aline was fantastic because she was very well organized to support all our requests in time.
the place is really in the heart of rio and Aline made necessary to help about guide in rio, therefore her apartment is really nice and not noisy in night time.
i will come back if i come again to Brazil.
Aline is best host ever. Her apartment was just amazing. Very clean and in every piece of this apartment we felt Aline's artistic soul.
Everything was very well prepared for our arrival. Her exclusive travel guide was extremely helpful.
We will recommend this place for everyone.
Aline thank you very much :)
Aline´s apartment is located at the heart of Lapa and everything is at a walking distance. Doorman service is useful as we had a late check-in on Christmas Eve. It´s a pity we didn´t meet Aline in person but she has prepared such a detailed guidebook with many local tips, so it was like talking with her for hours.
Don´t miss Mestre Kami, best sushi in Rio, and the picturesque Casa de Cashaça if you want to taste real good cashaça.
I will gladly stay here again in my future visit in Rio.
A experiencia no apto de Aline foi muito legal! Ela e suas criações inspiram muito. O ambiente que se sente na casa é muito tranquilo. Adorei casa detalhe. Está muito bem localizado também. No coração da Lapa! A única coisa que não gostei foi a cama, pois na foto parece qe fosse uma cama de casal, mas na verdade são duas camas de solteiro juntas. O resto tudo ótimo!!
Wow, Aline's flat is amazing - equipped with everything you need and beautifully arranged. The area is just as described, during weekend packed with people, great music and drinks. On the other side there are homeless people sleeping on the road, but we didn't have any negative experience during our 10 day stay. There is a police car each 3-4 blocks, during the night police presence is doubled, so we really felt safe. There are many bars and restaurant in the area, make sure you visit couple of those mentioned in Aline's guide. If you are visiting Rio and staying in Lapa, best time would be first and second weekend of the month, because you can visit feiras or markets in the Lapa streets. Access to tourist sights is easy and perfectly described in the guide, just to visit Ipanema beach or Feira Hippie at General Osorio sq, I'd recommend taking metro from Cinelandia station.
Spacy artistic apartment, central and really nice. We loved the artwork.
