The rest of the year this is a photo studio. We only rent this for New Years and Carnival, World Cup and Olympics.

US$ 599 for 2 people up to 6 days New Years and Carnival.
WORLD CUP PRICING in the range of US$ 160-220 dollars. I might accept shorter then the usual 10-14 day minimum. On longer periods during world cup we might want to use the studio for accasional photo work, in which case we would entertain additional discounts.For carnival and New Year's this is not needed.
Not a perfect apartment, no kitchen, but microwave and fridge. But best for eating out.
The photo studio equipment will be around, shoved to the side.
Closets are pretty full, but you have place to hang your clothes. Other clothes probably is best kept in your suit case.
Good for young people who do not seek luxury.
Cable TV with basic programming is included.
We can discuss you to come to my apartment, 80 meters away for occasional internet access or urgent viewing of football games on ESPN
