The house is in a really bad area (favela-like), very far from the center, certainly not suitable for foreigners. Even the taxi-drivers at the airport were discouraging us to go to that area. Also, the house is unfinished and in very bad condition, which it could not be seen on the pictures. In fact the pictures are of the flat where the landlady lives and not of that were guests are put. Just to mention one aspect, two beds were put in the bathroom, which featured a non-flushing toilet. We left the flat before the night, scared by the aggressive behaviour of the owner more than by the frightening surrounding. The owner even refused to let us call airbnb assistance from her phone (we did not have a working Brazilian phone at the time). Although this was the first bad experience with Airbnb, it has been rather terrible. The apartment was grossly misrepresented and the area is unsafe, particularly for group of girls/women. Stay away, if it is not too late.

Foi uma decepçao depois de mais de 4 anos como anfitriã do Airbnb, O Jota e Juliana ja chegaram em minha casa se achando os melhores do mundo, so porque moro num Bairro de Classe Media!Hospedei ´pessoas muito importantes, Doutores, empresarios nunca passei por isso. Chegaram fizeram jantar, comeram descansaram e depois falaram que o Bairro e longe nao queriam ficar, começaram alterar voz comigo pedindo o dinheiro de volta, forçaram abrir o Site do meu anuncio e pedindo para eu cancelar a estadia deles, eu nao o fiz sairam exaltados! E foram embora, deixaram tudo uma bagunça, forçaram a descarga do Vaso Sanitario e deixaram vazando a agua direto! Eles trabalham com Teatro estao no caminho certo! Fizeram um verdadeiro Teatro na minha casa!" Sim um Teatro de Horror" NA SAIDA FALARAM VOU TE DETONAR NO COMENTARIO,ISSO QUE AINDA NAO VI

OLa Daniel, me desculpe, mas havia lhe falado antes de voce reservar, que se voce reservasse rapido eu poderia arrumar uma pessoa amiga para te receber por que eu tinha uma viagem marcada para Sao Paulo, mas vc insistia que eu passase meu contato telefonico e numero da casa,eu disse isto so seria possivel apos a reserva no Aibnb, ai vc reservou a noite, como eu sairia bem cedo nao dava tempo de contatar outra pessoa para te receber, Peço desculpas pelo acontecido!

It was a very nice experience. Really worth mentioning is Mariah, she was such a nice, helpful and wonderful host!!!! Even as we arrived at 2 in the morning and the taxi driver was trying to fox us, she discuss with the driver until the price was fair. The rooms a clean and simple, very nice view of Belo Horizonte from balcony but not that central (not that bad because there departs a local bus more or less in front of the door which takes about half an hour).

Even though we stayed only 1 night with Mariah, she was extremely helpful and made sure we felt safe and had everything we required. She understands English and with (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) translation, we were both able to communicate with not much trouble! The neighbourhood was a bit daunting initially but once we settled in, it was just fine. Great view from the balcony at night. Good value for money.

Hey! Mariah was my first Airbnb experience and she will be the one used to rate others! :) I had a really good time at Mariah's I stayed for 3 nights. The mattress was nice and firm and she provided a yummy breakfast in the morning ;)!! She is such a warm, friendly person, and very thoughtful. I felt welcome in her house. She showed me the local tourist attractions in Belo Horizonte and where to exchange money. She also took me to the local shopping mall. Just as the advert says, its a very safe and quiet area I was more than confident that my belongings were safe in her house. I would definitely stay at her house again. Thanks Mariah

Gosto muito de viajar, tanto no Brasil quanto em outros países como Argentina e Estados Unidos. Quando viajo fico em Hostels e conheço pessoas do mundo inteiro, não me preocupo com muito com luxo. Pretendo ainda conhecer muitos lugares, minha próxima viagem será para a Europa. Gosto de dançar, ler, cinema, ouvir música e conversar.

Em termos de culinária, gosto bastante da japonesa, brasileira e vegana.

5 coisas que não fico sem: Deus, meu filho, carro, computador e internet...

Como hóspede sou muito comunicativa, amiga, procuro agradar ao máximo e como anfitriã também.

Meu lema e aproveitar e conhecer novas pessoas e línguas, lugares diferentes, exóticos. Cada dia que recebo hóspedes é uma felicidade para mim, não tanto pelo dinheiro e sim pelo pelo enriquecimento de conhecer outras línguas e culturas. É um prazer muito grande receber os estrangeiros e também pessoas do meu país, todos são tratados com muito amor!
