Malu at Ipanema - room / whole flat

Apartment - Private room · Rua Vinícius de Moraes, Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro 22411-010, Brazil

The Space

Ipanema is an interesting place to visit, besides the famous beach, there is  the lagoon „Lagoa Rodriogo de Feitas“  surrounded by recreation area, bike hire and entertainment kiosks for food, drinks and music, a spectacular landscape with a big biodiversity and great views to Corcovado and part of the Atlantic Rainforest.

The B & B is located almost opposite the lagoon, a few meters from Ipanema beach. The B & B is in an old and small residential and family building of 1938, has no elevator and is located on the 2nd  floor  with only one staircase.

The B & B features: a large room with good ventilation and 1 double and 1 single beds for 3 people, one complete bathroom for exclusive use by the guests, air conditioning, wardrobe,  wi- fi broadband internet,  daily cleaning of the room and bathroom. The Brazilian breakfast is served in the eating area.
My building is located about 5 minutes from the Ipanema's trade: Banks, supermarket, drugstores, restaurants, bookstores, metro and bus station. Nightclubs and pubs, theaters, cinemas and art galleries.

We are also about 30 minutes by bus from the Sugar Loaf station and 40 minutes by bus, or 10 min. by metro, from the Corcovado station.
You also can walk about 15 min. to Copacabana or Botanic Garden.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This was my first visit to Brazil and during Carnival no less :) Malu went out of her to way to make sure I knew how to get to her place before arriving and even asked me what I like to eat for breakfast. Malu is warm and caring, and made sure I saw the best of the best non-tourist spots in Brazil, so that I could leave with a full experience. She also made suggestions so that me and my friends were safe during such a fun, but crazy party that Carnival is!

    I can't recommend Malu highly enough. If you want to explore Brazil, learn about the culture, and stay with a true Carioca then Malu is the perfect hostess! Her dog Carolina is also a sweet heart.

  • Malu was an amazing hostess, couldn't have been more accommodating and made a great breakfast each morning. Her apartment was just what I had in mind and the location is perfect

  • I absolutely loved staying at Malu's. Her place felt like a home away from home. She is a wonderful and caring host, passionate about Rio. Everything has already been said about her lovely home, just 4 small blocks from the beach, delicious breakfasts and her two sweet dogs João and Carolina. Malu is also very much in touch with the art scene in Rio and will share her passion enthusiastically, if you are interested. She really got out of her way to help me enjoy my stay in Rio to the maximum. I recommend her place warmly.

  • I loved my experience at Malu's. She is a vey energetic woman.
    We had lunch together once. And she was around during breakfast. We talked a lot about politics. I learned something new every time we chat.
    The apartment is very well located. You can take public transportation easily and the main touristic spots are not far.
    She has two adorable street dogs: Carolina and João. They are a sweetheart.
    Her smoothies are amazing!
    The room is very clean. The bed is a little bit small.
    The bathroom also is very clean.
    I recommend staying here. I would like to go back as soon as I can.

  • I had a lovely stay at Malu's apartment during a rainy weekend in Rio. She is knowledgeable about Rio and can give you small tips on things to do. She also knows the buses very well. The morning juice is delicious, the water is nice and hot, and the apartment is clean and safe.
