The Space

Comfortable charming room in Laranjeiras, one of the best neighborhoods in Rio.
Double bed, air conditioning, fan, curtains, closet with hangers, hairdryer, brand new high quality sheets and towels.
Beautiful renovated apartment, with 2 bedrooms, large bathroom, small lavatory, kitchen and laudry room.
Wifi internet.
Laranjeiras is a safe residential neighborhood, close to everything. It's located between Downtown area/Lapa/Santa Teresa and the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema.
There are buses going anywhere you may want to go in Rio, just one block away from the flat. The subway station is within 10 minutes walk and there is a bike station (Bike Rio) right across the street from me.
On this block, there is a supermaket, a drugstore, a grocery store and a "lanchonete" (snack bar). And there are many options to eat out and to go shopping in the neighborhood, which is quite lively. There is also a great bakery store with a breakfast buffet just one block away from the apartment.
I'm a translator and I have a cat called Mafalda. She's quiet and keeps mostly to herself.
Here, you'll find a comfortable, safe and quiet environment to rest after a great day of fun in sunny Rio, the "marvellous city". And what's best, this quiet haven is located right in the middle of the most important touristic attractions, with easy fast access to them.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My stay at Laura's house was wonderful. Laura is very well organized and makes sure everything is smooth. The flat is beautiful, calm, spacious, well-decorated, perfect for cooking ect. The two rooms are big, with high ceilings and lots of storage space. Laranjeiras is a real Carioca neighborhood with a vibrant community and all conveniences close (metro, buses, supermarket). It is close to the young and fun neighbourhoods as Santa Teresa, Lapa, Urca, Rio Antique Center ect. I would definitely come back. Lea

  • Staying at Laura's apartment was the best experience we could ask for! It is beautiful - the decoration is amazing and so cozy -, clean and practical - has everything you might need. It will definitely make you feel at home. So will Laura since she is so nice and talkative - she will share her space with you like you have known her for the longest time and still give you privacy. The apartment might not be located right next to the beaches, but we actually preferred it this way - it is close to the metro and buses, you will get everywhere in 15 minutes. In Copacabana and Ipanema it gets way too crowded and, from what we know, it can get a bit dangerous. In Laranjeiras there is no problem at all and everything you need is just around the corner! So YES, stay here if you have the chance! We are sure you will love it just like we did! :)

  • Fui para o Rio me hospedar na casa de uma "estranha" e ganhei uma amiga!! A Laura é fantástica e o apê dela, além de confortável, lindo e charmoso... é tudo isso e muito mais!! Me senti em casa e foi difícil ir embora. O quarto é o melhor, super privativo e (website hidden) região tem de tudo também, impossível passar "aperto". Está mais do que recomendado, é quase parada obrigatória!! Laura e Mafalda (a gatinha), obrigada por tudo!!!

  • Laura is a perfect host, you feel at home after your fist steps in the house. The house is fully equipped and it is perfect to live in Rio de Janeiro as tourist or as normal traveller. The room is very comfortable and everything is super clean from the kitchen to the bathroom. Laura showed her kindness and helped me in many circumstances

  • The apartment is really nice, modern and clean. Everything works and it's located at the heart of Rio close to the subway line. We were also offered towels and complimentary soap. The kitchen has modern appliances and is suitable for cooking. We didn't use the washing machine but it had one. Air conditioning can be found in one of the bedrooms. During summer months it can get really hot. There were fans in other rooms. There's a housecat who's inside all the time and is a bit timid. The cat mostly keeps to itself and we found it best to leave her alone unless she approached us. Feeding the cat was part of the deal. Overall a very pleasant experience and I would gladly recommed this accommodation. The owner speaks fluent English (as well as other languages).

  • The flat is spacious, beautiful and quiet. I came to spend a few days working and it worked out very well. For people in a more touristy mood it's perfect as well, you can get to the beaches and to the center easily using buses. The Largo do Machado metro station is also not very far away. Supermarkets, shops and ATM are all close by.

    Laura is a great host, very helpful and accomodating! Will definitely come back next time I am in Rio.

  • Staying with Laura was our best experience in Rio. My husband and me shared many interests with her and we had the impression as if we had been friends for a long time. She is friendly, helpful, talkative and polite. Her cat Mafalda was scared of us at the beginning but she almost became our friend the last day. She explained us what to do in the city and how we could enjoy the authentic Carnaval with local people (including her favorites "blocos"). Her apartment is cozy, charming, sun lightened and clean. We had a nice double bed and towels with several amenities. We couldn't have been better in Rio de Janeiro, as the place is located in a nice neighborhood with both apartments and shops and it reminded us Barcelona's atmosphere with local people walking in the street. Its location lets you go everywhere fast and safe, as the metro Largo de Machado is 5 minutes walking and there's a taxi stop in front of the block. Corcovado train is really close and you reach Ipanema and Copacabana quite fast by metro. So for us, it was the perfect place to be there, without staying by the touristic spots so much crowded but connected with everything if desired. I recommend you the place, and Laura's tips about the city will be very useful and priceless for you. Obrigada Laura por nos aceitar, foi uma sorte, adoramos ficar com você.

  • Laura is an amazing host! Really easy going and friendly. She helped me during the whole time, even before I've arrived, with tips about transportation and an open communication even via cell phone when I needed it.
    Her house is so cute, clean, charming and has a beautiful view to an open green area in the back.
    Overall it was an amazing experience, besides being in Rio, I could make a new friend, Laura, and stay at such a nice house.
    You were amazing Laura! :)
    PS: guys, Laura prepared the room with such care and details: a variety of Rio's guides, a really good closet, nice towels, a very comfortable bed and air conditioning (really important during the summer). Haven't had a host that cares so much in a long time. Thank you Laura!! Oh, and the building is in a great and central area, go for it! Totally recommended ;)
