Leblon is an affluent neighbourhood and a beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Leblon is known for being a very cosmopolitan neighborhood, with an agitated nightlife because of its bars, restaurants, nightclubs and commerce. It is located west of Ipanema
It's very much like Ipanema but even more exclusive, being the home of very rich, affluent and famous people. The beach is a bit quieter and relaxed than the hip and trendy beach of Ipanema. It's a neighbourhood of upper class people in the southern zone of the city. It is located between Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, Morro Dois Irmãos, Jardim de Alá channel, bordering the Ipanema and Lagoa.

We had arrived in Rio after spending more than 6 weeks traveling throughout Brasil. We checked into the apartment without a problem.
However on the following day a plumbing problem arose, I immediately
called Rafaella and let her know. She came over a day later and said it would be taken care of. Two days later the problem still persisted, I again called Rafaella to complain. She agreed to move us to another apartment.
I wish she had been more proactive in dealing with the issue. The new place was fine and she did send over a basket of goodies to smooth things over.
La atención de Raffaella fue muy buena y el apartamento al momento de nuestro ingreso estaba super limpio. Brinda todas las comodidades necesarias y está muy bien equipado, La ubicación es muy buena: cerca de la playa, buena comunicación con el resto de la ciudad y en una zona muy segura. Como aspectos negativos, puedo indicar que el edificio es antiguo, que el departamento está bien para una pareja con 2 chicos pequeños ya que el sofá del living es algo chico como para que duerman adultos. Otro de los puntos que restan es que el edificio no tiene personal de seguridad nocturna y que la persona de vigilancia que debería estar durante el día, prácticamente no está nunca.
This apartment is nice. Great location in Leblon right across from one of the best pastry shops in town - I loved going in there and seeing what fresh baked goods they had that day. The street wasn't too loud and it's also 2 short blocks from the beach. The air conditioner worked well in the bedroom as well as the washer and the handy clothes drying rack suspended from the ceiling. I had no issues with the internet while there. All in all a good place to stay in Rio and one of the better priced apartments in this neighborhood. Rafaella was prompt in responding to my emails and courteous and delivered an extra blanket when the temperature got a little cold. She was also flexible with check in and check out times which I really appreciated. Thanks Rafaella!
Amei o apartamento, super bem localizado e tivemos uma estadia maravilhosa. Recomendo a todos, e assim que voltar ao Rio irei procurar pela Rafaella.
We had four great days here. Location can not be better: shops, restaurant and beach! Rio is fantastic and Rafaella is a responsive, flexible and kind host.
