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).

  • My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Godi's apartment during Carnivale and highly recommend it. Upon arrival, he allowed for us to check-in early due to an early flight from Manaus that had a limited schedule, and he also gave permission to check-out late. Over lunch and coffee at a nearby grill, and authentic Brazilian cafe, he shared a lot of local knowledge of the area. It just so happen that the Atlantica Copacabana Hotel is down the street, which is the central point to pick up pre-ordered Carnavale tickets for Sambadromo, and costumes from Carnivale Bookers International. Godi came along to help us bring back our costumes, which was totally unnecessary, but he genuinely was interested in helping out and scoping out the Carnivale Bookers operations to make sure we received our tickets. The apartment was clean, and exactly as described. The humble unit is in an older building, so the hot water shower required a separate gas pilot that you need to light with a match, but it was not an issue at all, and worked just fine. The location is amazing, as the subway was 2 short blocks away, we could hail a cab at any time, and the bus to the Corcovado tram was around the corner. Everything we needed: post office, grocery, bank, laundry service, and a bunch of restaurants that happen to be in the Lonely Plant Guide were literally within a 2 block radius. For Carnivale, we were also nearby a lot of Blocos. Most importantly, the building was quiet and secure. In prepartion for World Cup, Godi purchased a new Smart LCD TV, and new linens, which we had the chance to benefit from. We also used the the beach chairs he provided, which you will learn can save you at least 7 Reals per chair at the beach per day.

    Response from Godi Gutierrez:

    Thanks for this nice feedback and review, Pam. I truly appreciate hosting you and Ron. I only wish that we could have more interaction, but I have to fly to Vitoria, ES that same night. Anyway, I just wanted you to know that it was amazing knowing both of you, and that unequivocally, I can say without hesitation that you were the best ever guests that I have hosted in my 3 years with Airbnb.
