Gabriella was a very nice host, she got us out of a jam at short notice.
The house itself is nice and in a good location, but they had stripped the insides of anything useful. No fridge or cooker, no chairs and all three of the beds were makeshift and not comfortable at all.
I got the feeling this place was in transition from a house to something else, we possibly stayed at a bad time. But the place was completely bare and compared to all other air b'n'bs that we've stayed in, not really up to scratch.
Gabriela, o apartamento é mesmo um charme, a localização não poderia ser melhor e uma bela vista indevassável me surpreendeu ao ver o Cristo Redentor enquanto tomava banho. Como você sabe, já morei no Rio e me senti em casa no seu sótão. Essa área do Jardim Botânico é um sonho para quem quer passar uma temporada de equilíbrio entre agito e paz numa região segura. Que grande privilégio encontrar um rua tranquila bem pertinho de ponto de ônibus, ponto de taxi, supermercado, farmácia e também da bela Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas. Há opções de restaurantes, bares, cafés e pizzarias para todos os gostos, o que me agradou imensamente. Pela manhã, para completar a minha alegria, descobri que estava ao lado do Parque Lage e que o Jardim Botânico ficava a poucas quadras. Não me fez falta um cozinha (website hidden) só precisava mesmo da praticidade de um forninho, uma chaleira elétrica e uma cafeiteira, a que se somou a graça de paninhos, xícaras e pratinhos coloridos. Agradeço pela cerveijnha na geladeira, pelo mate e pelo biscoito globo, tradições cariocas. Encontrei o que precisava na cidade maravilhosa. Recomendo esse cantinho agradável e espero retornar em breve.
And here is my recommendation in English:
The apartment is so charming, its location couldn’t be better, and I was taken aback by the view of the Christ statue from the bath! I’ve previously lived in Rio, and I felt right at home in this loft. This part of Jardim Botanico is a dream for anyone who wants to spend some quiet time in Rio, a perfect balance between the hustle and bustle of the city, and the peace and quiet of a safe neighbourhood. What a privilege to find a peaceful street so close to the bus stop, taxi stands, a supermarket, a drugstore, and of course the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas. There is a wide choice of restaurants, bars, cafes and pizzarias to suit all tastes, which I loved. In the mornings, to my total joy, I discovered that I was right beside Parque Lage, and that the Botanical Gardens were only a few blocks away. I didn’t mind not having a big kitchen either – all I needed was a little oven, an electric kettle, a coffee machine, and the lovely cloths and colourful crockery. Thank you for the beer in the fridge, for the “mate” and the Globo biscuits, such carioca traditions! I found what I needed in this marvellous city. I recommend this little corner of Rio and hope to come back soon myself.
Gabi is an excellent guest. She was courteous, friendly and very respectful of our space. We would be happy to host her again.
