We were staying at another place and had to make a last minute reservation at bob's place. Bob responded really quickly and allowed us to move in at a short notice. The place is just next to copacabana beach and within walking distance to the metro station. The room is clean but the air conditioner might need some maintenance and was not working for some nights. We enjoyed our stay and would consider bob's place in the future.
It was amazing!! The apartment was really great-located. 2 steps from the bus station an only one block from the beach. It has an amazing terrace. Bob was really kind. We can absolutely recommend this apartment.
We were greeted by Bob on arrival, he gave a tour of the studio and of the outdoor terrace, as well other important info. He was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The apartment is in a perfect area, right around the corner from Copacabana beach and with plenty of amenities (restaurants, bars, supermarkets near by). The apartment itself is small and clean, fridge and cooking facilities are fine, although a chopping board would be helpful. Access to cable tv and wifi was great and had no problems. Bed was firm, but ok. The only issues we had were that it got quite warm (even with the AC on) and whilst the bathroom was small and functional, there were bad smells wafting from the bathroom, despite it being clean.
Great location, fare price, nice and comprehensive owner: all the ingredients are here to live a great stay in Rio. We liked it very much indeed. Thank you Bob!
Nice unit clean, Safe the owner is Nice And respectful
Good apartment and good location. However hosts were not great. We didn't see them once during our stay and it was quite difficult to find anyone that spoke English for general tourist information.
We had a great stay with Bob and Carline. The first day we had an incident with the shower; the water didn’t flow down the drain very good, but into the bathroom and the apartment. Bob resolved this problem very quickly and when we came back the room was cleaned again and we had a new set of towels. The location of the apartment is amazing, two minutes to the Copacabana beach and next to a lot of restaurants and shops. The rooftop of the apartment is also great to relax. Good quality for the price that we paid. Thanks for everything!
I stayed 5 days in this room, during a big holiday in Brazil. Bob is really kind and nice guy. The roof is really great, with a small pool and a barbecue place... it's a shared place with all others rooms.
Really old place, need a renew urgently
Internet: really bad, need a turn off and turn on all time
Noise: The place have a lot of noise, each person leaving the place make a big noise with the "front door"
Cleaning: it's not a very clean place
Localization: really good, two blocks from beach with restaurants and market close;
Roof: Nice place
Muy buena la estadía en Río de Janeiro . Increíble todo. Iría siempre que pudiera.
Excelente localização pra quem que curtir a Lapa por um preço bastante acessível. Recomendo.
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!
