Eco friendly flat. Nice room in a lovely apartment in Glória with and amazing green view of Santa Teresa. A very charming ambiance, decorated by a designer.

The Space

Great location: half way to the beach and Maracanã stadium.

The Room

It is a very charming room decorated by a designer. It is equipped with a closet, a double bed, a hammock, a night table, shelves and a good mirror, antique style. To top it all the room has an incredible view.

The apartment

We will receive you in our nice two-bedroom apartment. You can learn more about us in our profile description.

You have hammocks in every room, so one can enjoy the views comfortably.

Nice and quiet leaving room plus a modern bathroom and a kitchen equipped to please the most demanding gourmet cook.

Calm and bright, this is the perfect place to enjoy your visit, close to the subway and downtown. It's a great place to stay in Rio!

Besides that you are in a very quiet part of the neighborhood. It is a unique place, because it is located in the center of Rio but one can enjoy when in the apartment, on the background, birds singing as if one is in Brazilian countryside. At night one can hear nature's pleasant melody, in the mornings, roosters singing faraway and during the day the birds playing their songs.

Guest Access

All amenities available: Wi-Fi, TV, DVD, access to fully equipped-kitchen (fridge, oven, stove) plus washer and dryer.

The Neighborhood

The best location if you want to discover the typical Rio. Located central Rio, 15 minutes walking to downtown, Santa Teresa, Lapa and Aterro do Flamengo; 5 minutes walk to the Glória subway station and many bus stops, with taxis available at your footsteps; 20 minutes by subway to Copabacana beach, 25 minutes by subway to Ipanema beach, 5 minutes by subway to van transfer to Corcoado-Cristo Redentor; 10 minutes by taxi to Santos Dumont airport (the main airport to São Paulo, Belo Horizonte and Brasília flights), 10 minutes by taxi to ferry station, 20 minutes by subway to Maracanã stadium!

There is a great restaurant down the street, Grégora Art Café and the famous Pizza Chico is a 15 minutes walk. Close by, Lapa and Santa Teresa, sections of the city where one has several museums, very nice bars and these old historic houses which were restored and where one goes to dance to live bands playing samba, forró, choro (the lively Brazilian rhythms)...

On Sundays, the great Gloria open market is on, where one can try the local products, like tapioca, pastel, coconut water, juice of sugar cane and of course fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, eggs, meat...

Saturday is the day of the organic market where one can buy the best fruits and vegetables in Rio, great breads, cheeses and many other goodies

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Tatiana and Nilton are so kind and friendly that I felt like being at my relative's home.
    The best thing I had in Rio is to have met Tatiana and Nilton.
    Also, the room itself is clean and very confortable!
    I will have no reason that I do not choose their house when I come back to Rio again.

  • Tatiana & Nilton are very great hosts. They told us lots of nice places where we could go. The room is perfect for two persons. The location in Gloria is well situated and the area is nice and safe with a good neighborhood. It's close to the artist district, Santa Teresa and you can use the metro (5 min to walk from the apartment) to discover Rio. Approximatly 30 brazilian Real to the Copacabana by taxi/cab.

  • Tatiana and Nilton are very nice people. They welcomed us warmly into their home and help with booking the excursion, gave us all the necessary information related to Rio, organized our transport to the airport at 5 am and were in our service when we needed. Our room was comfortable and clean, and the bathroom and the rest of the apartment also. Tatiana kindly gave their towels to use and everything else we need (we were able to cook, wash clothes ....) The neighborhood is safe and there are shops, cafes and small restaurants. Near is the Metro which makes transportation easier.. We spent a great time in Rio and our hosts Tatiana and Nilton would recommend to anyone. Tnx :)

  • Rio.
    Tatiana and Nilton have a lovely and very clean apartment in a great location just around the corner from the metro. We were lucky enough to have it to ourselves as they were away. We had all we needed and only had a bit of difficulty figuring out a few things like plugs, dish washing stuff and some things unfamiliar to us. There was not information or maps etc. in the apartment but Tatiana was lovely when I communicated and she explained everything on (website hidden) as well as how and where to go etc. We were able to use our off-line maps to get around.
    The only real problem for our 6 night stay was the bed which was like a board and more like a bed base (for a mattress to go on top).
    Tatiana to her credit organised for her cleaner to come and put a duvee under the sheets which helped a bit. She has indicated that she will change the bed mattress and I think that would make a stay much more comfortable.
    We never the less enjoyed our stay and the local neighbourhood around the apartment.

  • Tatiana and Nilton welcomed us warmly into their lovely apartment for five nights over the Christmas period. It is a lovely place, beautifully decorated. Our room was the perfect size for the two of us and had wonderful views that were a delight to wake up too in the morning.
    The neighbourhood is well situated, just a ten minute walk to Santa Theresa and the great nightlife in Lapa. It takes about 40 minutes on the underground to get too the beach.
    Tatiana and Nilton were extremely friendly and helpful, a very interesting couple. They were always happy to offer advice about where to go and what to see. However, it sometines felt like the communal areas were not quite big enough for four of us and at times we felt a bit in the way, because of this we didn't really get to benefit from relaxing in the lounge. However we were out and about most of the time so this wasn't really a problem.
    There is a great restaurant a few doors down the hill thats handy for a quick and cheap bite; the waiter serves great Caprinhas.
    Id truly recommen this as a great value and welcoming stay in the magnificent Rio.
