Olá, eu sou a (full name hidden) moro no Rio de Janeiro, tenho 30 anos. Trabalho com cinema e arte e espero receber muitos e bons hóspedes no meu maravilhoso loft.
We stayed in Mariana's home as we were waiting for the arrival of our baby girl! The perinatal hospital is just around the corner. Marianna was a most welcoming host, accommodating our needs, answering any questions we had and helping us to be nice and relaxed. The location is wonderful, not just for the hospital but the flat is on a great street, with shops and chafes close by. Supermarkets etc just 5 minutes walk away. We had a wonderful time and would absolutely recommend staying in Mariana's apartment.
I stayed for a week at Mariana's wonderful apartment in June 2013. I loved everything about it: the entire apartment is beautiful, every aspect of it is of high quality as well as fully functional (high speed internet, TV, DVD player, washing machine, etc..). The building and the neighborhood are great. As other have mentioned, the Maya Cafe is really good, the Saturday market (food and crafts) fun, and the chorinho (which started sometime in the early afternoon) is not to be missed--really fantastic. The pastels at this market are excellent. A few blocks down there are two bar/cafes (on the Rua Alice) that are classic places to have appetizers and drinks. The neighborhood is close to a very central place for getting around (Largo do Machado). Finally, Mariana was an excellent host -- answering all my questions/requests. She was travelling, so her mother was there to greet me and help me settle in nicely. My only concern: it's such a great place, that I'd almost like it to be kept a secret!!! Thanks, Mariana, for allowing me to be your guest. I hope to be able to repeat this experience again one day.
The flat is a great place to be, the atmosphere in this small valley in front of the mountain is great. Very nice cafe named Maya Cafe is front of the house with amazing ice cream and delicious meals.
Had a perfect time especially due to the nice hammock which makes recovering after an exhausting days full of exploring even easier!
Mariana has received four days in his apartment in Rio. It was a great pleasure. The apartment is big, bright, quiet and very well decorated. The neighborhood is very convenient. It is located 10 minutes from start to Corcovado.
Mariana had left us very kindly guide for carnival and party favors, this was a nice touch.
I would strongly recommend staying in the apartment of Mariana.
I have rented from Airbnb 5 times before and this was by far my best experience! Okay, Rio during Carnival helps me say that, but Marianna could not have been a better hostess. The apartment was great, and in a nice safe neighborhood with lots of helpful shops and restaurents nearby. Public transport was easily accessible and it's within walking distance to the cog-train to Christ the Redemptor.
Marianna herself was a most gracious hostess. You could tell even from the email before we arrived that she really wanted her guests to have a wonderful experience. She is a very warm person and did her best to help us enjoy our time. Don't hesitate to stay here when coming to Rio.!!
Mariana é uma grande figura! Tem uma intensa relação com a cidade e com o mundocultural.
Seu apartamento em laranjeiras é uma graça, ultra agradável e espaçoso.
Adoraria me hospedar lá!
(Mari is totally great, and the loft it`s super, in a friendly neighborhood, great space and beautiful view!!! I`d love to bee there!!!
I've had the great luck to stay in Mariana's apartment several times. As if being in Rio de Janeiro isn't good enough, having a clean, beautiful apartment in one of the most lush and charming neighborhoods of the city truly makes staying in Rio a special experience. Mariana knows all about what's going on in the art and music scene in Rio and can point you in the right direction for how to get off the touristic track and see the real (and really fun) parts of the city's night and cultural life. My advice is that when visiting Rio, staying in a real residential neighborhood, is so worth the extra couple minutes to the beach in the morning. You will wake up to spectacular views, and get to see a lovely side of the city that is not to be missed out on.
Mariana, é uma linda pessoa, filha maravilhosa!!Ela é criativa e adora estar alegre!!! Nos ultimos tempos, depois que ela montou o seu lindo loft em Laranjeiras, bairro residencial e artistico, ela decidiu receber hospedes em sua casa. Ela esta adorando essa nova fase de estar com pessoas de outras partes do Brasil e do mundo!!!!!
