Apartment was great, excellent location, clean, great air con, large shower, great view ( could see Corcovado from my bed ). Bobby was excellent and let me check out late which was kind of him. I had a magical four days here. Thoroughly recommend it.
We had an amazing time at the red and white suite. Bob met us on our arrival. Everything was situated perfectly. Thank you for being such a great host!
i had apleasent stay at the appartement from bob.
he let me stay a half a day for free to get my flight, so i coud take a shower.
Sim, anfitrião atencioso, e localização privilegiada..
Bob was a great host, excellent communication before and during the stay. Highly recommended.
Everything at penthouse like pictures. Penthouse location very nice. Bob answered all my questions and helped me so much
La experiencia fue negativa cuando llegamos al apartamento. Nadie nos esperaba, a pesar de que ya habiamos qiedado días atrás con el anfitrión. Parece que pensaba que llegábamos un día después. Nos toco esperarle más de una hora, y el apartamento no estaba listo, ni limpio. El anfitrión se limitó a darnos toallas y hacernos la cama. Por lo que esa noche tuvimos que pasarla en un apartamento sin limpiar.
En airbnb no se responsabilizaron del percance de la llegada y nos atendieron fatal al llamarles, diciendonos cosas como: " Es que estás en Brasil"....
Al día siguiente, eso sí, limpiaron profundamente el apartamento, y todo fue como se esperaba. Además destacar que el anfitrión tuvo la ambilidad de dejarnos hacer late check out el día de salida.
We stayed in Bob's apartments for 10 days and really enjoyed being there. Great location - metro, beach, supermarket, restaurants, all is close to the building. Room was small but very clean and cozy and had everything we needed to live there. Bob was very nice and friendly. For the price-quality ratio it was really excellent choice.
Great location right in the center of Copacabana. Great rooftop except pool was functional only partially. Looked like a swamp most days. Dared to go in only on 2 out of 7 days I stayed there were it seemed to have been treated.
Room is a bit old but clean and comfortable. Supermarket, metro, beach all conveniently close by.
Electricity was down in the building for half a day after which WiFi did not work until Bob came home in early evening so to restart it or whatever. Would have expected a bit more attention on that day for malfunctions due to electric fallout.
Either than that Bob was very attentive and replaced broken coffeemaker quickly. No further interaction with host.
But its all about value for money right? so in Rio, it's a good one.
Only would like to mention that the pool was with a broken filter and awaiting for maintenance person to come and to repair.
La ubicación del apto es muy buena. Tiene todas las comodidades para una estadía de pocos días. Mejoraría el mantenimiento y la limpieza (sobretodo el aire acondicionado). Bob es un anfitrión muy amable.
Bob was excellent at communicating with me before and during the reservation. I just felt completely at ease as a host since he was so kind and thoughtful over email, and I was reassured that he would take care of the place well as he is a host himself in his country! He left the place in order, and he was just in town for a few lovely days to enjoy the place with Carline. I didn't get to meet them but the whole process was easy and comfortable and I had no problems whatsoever hosting them. I highly recommend them to other hosts, as I mentioned Bob is a host and really knows how to be a wonderful guest as well!
Bob is this real person, hard working, honest, kind and a great friend! So I will always recomend him as an one hundred per cent reliable human being.
I've stayed at Bob's places three times over the last couple of years - one of them for a month. As many people already have written several reviews here I can only confirm that it was a pleasure staying at his place. Top of the pops is his roof terrace with a small pool, a barbecue place as well as a couple of sun beds with a view to Copacabana Beach as well as the "Cristo".
I also know Bob via some of the many people frequenting Rio for holidays and not only is he an honest and tidy guy but always very helpful and ready for a chat. His place (several studios) is nice and good value for money compared to what is the common standard in the south zone of Rio.
I give Bob and his place my best recommendations!
