Rio de Janeiro: Cidade Maravilhosa
Few cities in the world have been blessed by as much natural beauty as Rio de Janeiro. Its name conjures images of white-sand beaches (37 in total), the Cristo Redentor, carnival, a football-game at Maracanã, samba or favela. Rio de Janeiro is a diverse city, from the 19th century hillside neighborhood of Santa Teresa to the Americanized suburb of Barra da Tijuca. Though, most visitors tend to stick to the beach neighborhoods of Copacabana and Ipanema, with the near-mandatory excursions to Corcovado and Pão de Açúcar (Sugar Loaf).

Godi was a great host, as usual. This was my second time staying at his flat. That says it all. The flat was perfect size, perfectly appointed, and perfect location in Rio. It will be my Rio pied-à-terre as long as it is available. Two bedrooms on opposite sides of the living room, for privacy. Fully equipped kitchen. One block front he metro. Two blocks from the beach. Clean and comfortable. Flatscreen TV with loads of channels. Good internet connection. Highly recommended !!!!!
Not the greatest experience, a little overpriced for what it has to offer, a tiny kitchen with almost no utensils and a smell that could kill a rhino. Pretty close to the beach and the metro so that is a plus but if you are looking for a place that is groomed and at least feels like home that is not where you want to stay especially for the price that Godi charges during carnival. We have stayed at apartments 100s of times better then this on beach fronts for a third of the price. Hope this helps anyone else looking at this flat.
The location of the flat was great, not the most posh but safe neighbourhood and only a 5-min walk away from Copacabana beach and a 30 min walk away from Ipanema beach. Every taxi driver knows the location which is also very helpful.
The flat was very basic but clean and the shower produced hot water once we realised how to operate it. The air conditioning in the rooms worked very well, as did the wireless internet.
Godi was a great host, always responsive and came over to check the shower for us after we didn't get it to work. He also speaks fluent English which is surprisingly rare in Rio.
Awesome location, there is everything in the apartment for a good price. I recommend it.
Excellent location: 5 minutes walk to the Copa beach, 5 minutes walk to the subway/metro station, very good grocery shopping around. On Saturdays there is a farmer's market with good eggs and a choice of vegetables. Good and very good restaurants nearby. The apartment is bright, clean, quiet and comfortable enough, located on the second floor. Godi has thoughfully installed a converter for North American power outlets. Our flight was delayed; Godi patiently waited 5 hours to hand over the keys. The price represents excellent value. Highly recommended.
O apartamento era exatamente como descrito e o anfitrião é uma pessoa muito solícita e amável. Recomendo!
We had a great stay in Godi's apartment. The apt. was clean & very quiet. The bedrooms were comfortable & all the utilities worked well. The apt. was also conveniently located, surrounded by great restaurants and close to Copacabana beach. Thanks for a great stay, Godi. We had an enjoyable stay and hope to return to Rio soon.
Amazing location. Security day&night. Very comfortable apartment with a kind host. It gets a bit noisy in one of the rooms if the neighbors talk loud but silence is hard to find in Rio. I would definetely go back.
Great apartment and wonderful host. Great location. Located just 1/2 block from Cardeal Arcoverde metro stop makes travel downtown super easy and convenient. Easy access to Ipanema by foot or by bus. Just 2 blocks from the beachfront. Layout of apartment is excellent for sharing because the two bedrooms are separated by the living room. Apt was super clean and comfortable. Internet connection & cable TV never failed and were always on point. Not much of a view, but who worries out being inside looking out in Rio. The whole point of being in Copacabana is getting out onto the beach and into the streets. The upside: not being street side makes the apt really quiet. Decent food & shopping nearby, and the seafood restaurant right next door, "A Marisqueira" is definitely worth at least one visit. A great deal in every way! Godi is very friendly and welcoming. Can't imagine a better deal in Rio!
The apartment is very good. It is located in a wonderful place, 5 minutes walking from the Cpacabana's beach.
