My studio is very practical. It has just been refurbished and furnished - so everything is pretty much new! Perfect for one person or a couple. We finished the last renovation of the apartment in November, 2013 (walls painted, new colored seats, ar conditioning, office chair and little mirror at the corridor).
It's located right in the middle of Copacabana (Between Posto 3 and Posto 4), one block from Metro Station (Siqueira Campos Station) and two blocks from the beach.
Very close to a big variety of stores, supermarkets, banks, restaurants, services, gyms, etc.
With a double bed, it has 30 sq mt, ceiling fan, air conditioning, wireless internet, cable TV, oven, microwave, fridge, washing machine, iron, kitchen and a private bathroom.
Cable TV has the most complete channel grid. It shows all Brazilian open channels, 38 HD channels and another 124 channels for the rainy days.
Doorman works day and night, meaning a plus talking about security. Rogério is a doorman that is my foothold, if you need anything he can help you jus right away.
The building has been recently refurbished as well, with new lifts and internal security system.
For those who would like to know the beauties of Rio riding a bike, my apartment is located between 4 bike rental station, that is, 5 minutes walking from the 6th, 7th, 22nd and 23rd bike stations. Check the official website (website hidden) .
We are waiting for you ;)
The check in and check out time is determined, but we can negotiate it depending on your needs and the next or the previous clients needs as well.

I stayed at the apartment for 5 days, everything was as described. The a/c was ice cold, the shower had very hot water, the bed was nice and firm.
Flat in a very good position, everything else like description but not so clean at all. I had lots of problem to communicate with host (never met in 5 days, only 1 message) so he was not so helpfull with me.
My husband and I stayed five nights in this apartment. It was very nice, clean, and had everything exactly as advertised. The washing machine was spacious and worked well. The location is very convenient, just a four block walk down to Copacabana beach. Even though the apartment is on the second floor (email hidden)ly area, it was not loud. Plus the air conditioner provided nice background noise. Vinicius was an excellent host. He was available to answer questions at all times and he spoke to the doorman in Portuguese (on the telephone) when we had a request. If you are from the US, the building may strike you as questionable from the outside, but it is guarded by security and it is safe. Note that it is a small apartment, but that is because it is in the heart of the city where space is limited. I highly recommend this apartment.
Vinicius is a nice host. Though we did not meet him personally, he was available per e-mail/airbnb and he left the keys with the doormann, so that our arrival time could be managed with more flexibility by us. When we had a problem with the wifi, he answered the next day giving us another password which worked fine. The appartment is, from a touristic point of view, very well located, as the beach is near and also public transports, as well as good options for breakfast. It is practical and has everything you need for a 4 days-stay in Río!
The issue for us (this is why I am just giving 3 stars) was the noise. The apartment is located at a very noisy street as a lot of buses and cars drive by until very late in the night. Though you close the windows, it is as if you did not. The air conditioning is also very loud. Maybe it could be exchagenged by a newer one and this could improve the noise thing. But the perception of noise is very personal, so as you will see in other reviews, it did not bother others so much.
So go ahead if you do not bother too much about noise and book this apartment!
Katja was the only person I receive a complain about the noise. The apartment is located right in the heart of Copacabana, a very busy neighborhood in Rio, so it´s just impossible to not have noise. It´s close to everyhting, restaurants, markets, coffee shop, shops, Metro and right in front of a bus stop. So you can have everything you need in just some steps away.
Besides that the aircondition is very powerfull, so all the apartment can stay in a very nice temperature, that´s why it´s not so much silent.
Unfortunatelly Kajta didn´t talk to me anthything before about her problem of high sensitivity to noise, I she did that I could help her and she would not have any complain.
Vinicius' apartment was exactly as described in the profile. It was comfortable and conveniently located in short distance to Cobacabana beach, bus stops and metro. Vinicius was always quick to respond. I had a very pleasant stay.
Location, location, location! The apartment was refurbished as pictured, but the biggest draw was it's very central location - 2 blocks from the beach, 2 blocks from the metro and there was a bus stop right outside the front door. This made it very easy to explore the whole city. The only disadvantage to the bus stop out front is that the buses are very loud all day long. The air conditioner in the apartment is also a bit loud so it drowns out the buses and creates some white noise. Vinicius was very responsive both before and throughout my stay and was willing to help out with any local questions that I had. I was there for 25 days and had a great stay!!
The apartment was great, clean and big enough for two. The communication with Vinicius was perfect. You will find everything you need in walking distance since the appartement is located only two blocks from the beach. We would definately book again.
The apartment had everything we needed and was a bright and calm room to come home to after spending a day on the busy streets of Rio. Vinicius was very helpful and booking with him definitely made our stay in Rio more enjoyable. My sister and I were a bit worried about safety but there was a doorman there 24 hours who only buzzes residents of the building in, so there was nothing to worry about.
Excelente ubicacion: a 3 cuadras de la playa, a 1 del metro y con las paradas de bus a pocos metros de la entrada al edificio. Es muy limpio y completo. Tal cual se ve en las fotos. El anfitrion se porto de maravillas estando en permanente contacto y a disposicion. Lo recomiendo.
Buenisima experiencia, el dpto. es muy lindo y confortable, muy bien ubicado y Vinicius es muy atento, y ayuda en todas las dudas y consultas. Nos sentimos muy bien, Volveria sin dudarlo. gracias Vinicius! saludos!
