Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • (full name hidden), the hostess is very a pleasant person and very attentive. However, since I already know Rio very well I didn't have that much contact during my stay. But I'm sure that she and her husband will do everything to make your stay a pleasant one.

    10 min walk to Lapa where all the best bars of Rio are located. 15 min and you're able to catch the metro to the famous beaches, Copacabana/Ipanema. So for those who want to experience the night life of Lapa you really can´t ask for a better location.

    The flat is nice, quiet (if you´re very sensitive to noice be aware that there's a construction next to the building, however, I didn't really felt bothered about the noice level), bright and clean. It has wireless, several TV channels and even a washing machine which is great if you staying for a longer period.

    So overall I can only give my best recommendations - what you see on the picture is excatly what you can expect.

    Should I mention one thing that I found a bit anoying was the fact that the price of energy (5 Reais per person per day and you pay in cash) was not mentioned before after the booking and money transfer had taken place. Furthermore I recieved a legal paper (also after the booking) by e-mail (more than just the "house rules" and in Portuguese) that I suppose I was requested to sign, however, an e-mail confirmation did it.

    Had it not been for those two (minor) issues I would have given five stars rating. However, when I accept to terms and conditions on AIRBNB and I make the money transfer we have an agreement. Not vice versa - you don't pay and then afterwards you're presented to what you're paying for as well as an extra charge.

    I'll leave it up to you reader to judge for yourself - I stayed for a week and was happy. My best recommendations!

  • Marcia is such a gracious hostess. I found that she described her property very accurately. The apartment was immaculate, very well located, very safe with doorman 24/7. Many eateries, bakeries, juice stands, supermarkets nearly on every block, one million bus lines stop right outside her door. Very lively neighborhood. All in all excellent value for my money. She's so sweet she offered to pick me up and drop me off at the airport for just a few reales, not much at all. She and her sweet mother gave me a walking tour I really loved. I recommend her, her property and I will definitely go back to stay at her place.

  • My friend and I stayed at Marcia's apartment in Lapa for four nights. We were very happy with our stay. The wi fi worked perfectly and the air conditioning in the bedroom was great. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook. There was a grocery store only a couple of doors away. Marcia and her daughter met us for check-in and they were very friendly and made suggestions for our trip.

  • Wonderful family! Very very helpful. They guided me very well, and even gave me a ride to the sugarloaf.

    Very nice compact apartment with everything you need, and bus service to anywhere important from just around the corner. Grocery store right next to it, and plenty of restaurants and bars in a little walk.

    I would recommend taking their pick up and drop service, specially if you dont speak Portuguese.
