Excelente localização, apartamento bom e anfitrião atencioso. Recomendo!
Luiz is a very nice host. I had planned to stay 2 nights but I only stayed one night (It was too hot in Rio for me to spend the night without AC). Luiz was very accommodating, and even offered to switch rooms for one with AC. The breakfast was good, we hung out all day together with his roommate (afternoon at the beach, bike ride, and out at night) and we had great conversations. I am very appreciative of Luiz hospitality.
The accommodation is basic. The (probably converted) bedroom is in the back of the apartment, with a small toilet next to it (it's got a shower head but not the space for a shower, and no sink inside). Luiz invited me to use the dining, living rooms, and main bathroom in the apartment. The place was clean.
The location was great.
luiz stole our money and misleads people on airbnb. the pictures he posts are not of what is for rent. there are prison cells that have better amenities than this. you can barely enter because the door is blocked with a washing machine. the sink is a utility sink covered with paint and chemicals. the "shower" is simply a showerhead added to a "bathroom" half the size of a baby crib. he expressed anger to my friend and i because he could "hear" our conversation. the top bunk almost fell off which could have potentially crushed me. he said he will refund our money but he could not do it on the spot because he was "busy." this should have been a sign he had no intention to refund our money. he needs to be removed from airbnb, i DO NOT WANT people to experience this jerk and shithole of a "bed n breakfast."
Luiz was a great host. He responded to my request to stay with him instantly and on very short notice. His apartment is in a secure building in a very central location- with close access to buses, the metro and beaches. He tried to help out me out where possible and made me very welcome in his home.
The experience at Luiz flat was very good, the location is great, you're between Copacabana and Ipanema close to the beaches, supermarkets, good bars and some classic cariocas restaurants. In front of the house is a neighborhood bar where you can drink "cervejas geladas". In addition to a couple of blocks away it is Ipanema Hippie Flea Market only on Sundays, which is a must-see for all guidebooks.
Luiz is very good host, very friendly and answers any questions you may have about the city, and talked in English, Portuguese and Spanish.
If you have the chance to party with Luiz and his friends, do not think twice, it will be a carioca experience. Totally recommended.
The reservation was canceled 5 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Excellent location and great host.
Very friendly host. He took me to a great party on the first night I was there. The location could not be beat. You are within a few blocks of both Ipanema and Copacabana. A nice little boteco is just outside the place for cafe/lunch/dinner.
Estadia tranquila. Anfitrião receptivo, atencioso muito legal. Localização muito boa, bem perto da praia.
Luiz is a greay guy who live in yhe best location in Rio. he also gave us good and usfull info.
