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).

The location is great and convenient. But the apartment especially the living room is small. Better suit for 2 people instead of 4. The weather was very hot when we lived there. And there is only one AC in the bedroom. Not enough :) overall, it is a nice and cozy place to stay.
Why would you complain about the heat in Rio during summer? The hottest month of the year. And It says in the list of amenities that there's an air conditioner in the bedroom - it did not say that there are 2 air condioner. Who ever heard of air conditioning in a big area? Air conditioner in the living/dining/kitchen area? Also, you left the apartment in a real mess. Some one from your party left like a thousand strands of hair!
I had the best time in Rio in Godi's apartment. As soon as I arrived I was met by his partner with the keys to the apartment. I was shown all the aspects of the apartment which looked just like the pictures. The amenities were awesome and really worked out well since there are several grocery stores within a block. The neighborhood could not be any better. The apartment is located only 2 blocks from the center of Copacabana beach. Restaurants, beaches and shopping are all within blocks from your front door. I would recommend staying here to anyone coming to Rio looking for a nice safe location in the center of everything. If I ever come back to Rio I will certainly look to stay at Godi's apartment.
Godi was great. We communicated months before arrival. He was helpful, responsive and very kind. This was all very important as we were travelling to Brazil for the first time.
The apartment was nice and cozy. It has everything we needed. Best of all, the location: near Copa beach and amenities literally at your doorstep.
Godi es una excelente persona. Muy amable y respetuosa. El vecindario es muy tranquilo pese a estar ubicado el departamento ennel corazon de copacabana. Es un depto. Muy recomendable para 2 personas solas.. ya q si bien es pequeño sus ambientes independientes lo hacen mas grande. De volver a Rio. Volveria a alquilar a godi y su depto.
I just stayed in Godi's apartment for a month and everything went very well. Location of this apartment is excellent, close to anything you need. The bed is large and comfortable and the hot water for showering works perfectly. There is a large oscillating fan you can use in any area of the apartment and an air conditioner in the bedroom for those extra hot days/nights. The kitchen has everything you need to cook during your stay, the Internet connection is superb and there is a large selection of TV channels. Godi and I had a couple of enjoyable conversations and we are friends now. I would recommend anyone to stay here.
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.
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.
