We felt welcomed and safe from the very first moment .Marcia, Louis and Bianca were there to help us from our first day, showing us around town and the local shortcuts. They also helped us with our phones, took us to local attractions. Very easy to talk with and breakfast was provided every morning. We felt safe all the time in the house and around the neighbourhood. Nice place, room was a good size and WIFI was very good. Close to town, 10/15min walk to bus and metro. For two young first time travellers, it was the perfect place to stay. Thank you for making us feel part of the family. We will definitely be back.
Thank you. Alex + Ariki
As a frequent visitor to Rio, this was my best stay. Everything was as described, the hosts were very friendly and helpful and I would be happy to stay at Marcia's place again. Something worth mentioning is that besides the beautiful views and good location, the room sizes are also exceptionally big for Rio de Janeiro - so it's great value!
My stay at Marcia's house in Botafogo could not have been any better. I felt extremely comfortable during the two months I lived there. During my stay, Marcia's daughters, Bianca and Tainah, administered the house. They were both very friendly and helpful and made me feel at home right from the beginning. The house can be reached by climbing two sets of outdoor staircases that could be challenging to climb in the beginning. However, they become easier to do so. The fact that the house is somewhat distanced from the rest of Botafogo makes it extremely peaceful and relaxing. I definitely appreciated this after long days of working and sightseeing. I would strongly recommend Marcia's house for all travelers to Rio.
Mi estadia en la casa de Marcia en el barrio de Botafogo no podria haber sido mejor. Me senti muy comodo durante los dos meses que vivi alli. Durante mi estadia la casa fue administrada por las hijas de Marcia, Bianca y Tainah. Las dos fueron muy amables, me ayudaron con todo lo que necesite y hicieron que me sintiera en casa desde el inicio. Se llega a la casa subiendo dos escaleras que pueden ser un poco desafientes en el comienzo. Sin embargo, despues el subirlas se vuelve mucho mas facil. El hecho de localizarse un poco separada del resto del barrio de Botafogo hace que los alrededores sean pacificos y la casa muy relajante. Definitivamente, aprecie esto despues de largos dias de trabajo y turismo. Recomendaria la casa de Marcia en Botafogo sin reservaciones para todos los viajeros a Rio de Janeiro.
I really enjoyed the time i spend in Rio at Marcia's place. I highly recommend staying with Marcia and her family if you want see Rio!! Marcia and her family are really nice, friendly and warm people! They just give you a feeling like your at home. The house is very beautiful and great, and the spot is perfect. From there it's so easy to travel through Rio because it's so central. I really could tell you a lot but i think you have to see it for yourself. When i go back to Rio in the future i would definitely go back to Marcia !!!
Marcia and her daugthers Bianca and Stefanie are really nice people, they made us feel at home. They are very open minded and are always there if you need something. We met other guests from Portugal and Italy, great people. The view is awesome, a lot of green outside and it is very close to Pão de Açúcar, you can also see the Christ from the window. You should stay at this place.
