This apartment is in a great location (metro/bus stops immediately outside building), great apartment (24hr security/ door man/ quiet/ all amenities - incl. wifi, washer, AC), great hosts. Check-in/check-out was a breeze.
The only suggestion we would make is upgrading the bed as it was too firm.
Would definitely stay here again!
Ficar no apartamento da Eliane foi minha primeira experiência no Airbnb e só tenho elogios. Estar em um apartamento onde outra pessoa realmente vive dá uma sensação de que estamos num lar de (website hidden) casa da Eliane não foi diferente. Apesar de não termos nos encontrado pessoalmente, a proprietária foi muito solícita e se dispôs a nos ajudar o tempo todo.
O apartamento é para duas pessoas, mas conversamos com a proprietária e fechamos para um grupo de 4 pessoas. Como o apartamento é grande, ficamos confortáveis. Toda a estrutura nos fois forcecida, desde a máquina de lavar à roupa de cama, além de alguns mimos que a proprietária deixou para a gente.
A localização é excelente. O prédio fica ao lado do Metrô Borafogo, o que facilitou o acesso às praias mais famosas como Copacabana e Ipanema. O prédio também está a alguns metros da Enseada de Botafogo, de onde se pode ver os principais cartões postais do Rio: o morro do Pão de Acúcar e o Cristo Redentor. A vizinhança tem supermercado, hortifruti, farmácia e shopping center. Recomendo!
Eliane and her daughter are very kind and helpfull people, the apartment is really nice and with lots of space. Also the equipment is very well, a washing machine, a big fridge and a kitchen with all the stuff you need.
The location of the appartment is perfect, just few steps to the metro, so you have only few minutes to the beach or the town center.
In the neighborhood are lots of shops and places to get food, reacheable in minutes. We really enjoyed the time at this nice place.
Very secure building, felt very safe. Apartment spacious. Door men at entrance very efficient and friendly. Residential area with metro outside front door. Access within minutes to Copacabana or City centre, Centro. Street sounds can be heard but it becomes part of Rio life. Closed window eliminated sounds and air conditioning included. Shopping Mall, restaurants close by. Botafoga is a beautiful location in its own right, beach, long cycle/walk lane along beach/water area. A great way to get to know Rio and not just the tourist Rio. I would certainly stay there again. I stayed for close to a month and it was like home. The hosts are efficient and quick answering requests. Walked all around this area on my own (female) as would the locals and I had no issues. Usual obvious precautions of course taken into consideration. Rio is beautiful and this is a very accessible area giving you the opportunity to have the best of both worlds. Lots of transport, taxis, metro and close to tourist main areas. Best wishes to the hosts.
Eliane and her daughter are very nice, and we had a great stay. The flat is well located, near to the metro, buses and to Botafogo beach and movie theaters. It is big and Eliane made sure we had everything we needed - including all the kitchen basics we usually have to buy in a rush when we rent a flat. The only thing we didn't like was the bed, which is very hard - but we know some people like that. Overall we definitely recommend renting from Eliane.
Eliane has been the kindest and most welcoming host.
The apartment is really nice, better (and larger) than it actually appears in the pictures. If you're a light sleeper, though, bring blinkers and ear-pluggs, as the apartment gets really bright in the morning and somewhat noisy on week-days (it is off a main street).
Metro and taxi stops are just a few steps away.
Overall, a very recommendable solution!
My wife and I just spent a wonderful 6 nights in the apartment. I would strongly recommend this apartment to any couple visiting Rio. As we are in the middle of an extended holiday around South America, we greatly appreciated the extra space, kitchen facilities and use of a washing machine (as compared to a hotel). Location is great, right outside the exit of the Botafogo subway station. By asking around, we were also able to take the many buses that pass nearby the apartment to Centro, Botanical Gardens, the airport and Sugarloaf mountain. Eliane is a very nice and welcoming host. The apartment (her daughter used to live there before she moved overseas) is kept clean and livable.
A estadia foi muito agradável, a locatária foi muito disponível, o apartamento é muito bom e a localização é ótima, do lado do metrô e perto de tudo. Alugaria novamente.
Eliane is a very good friend of mine.
she is a reliable and clear person. What you see is what you get. And.. she is a very good cook.
She has a big place in my heart.
Bey Eliane, I hope many people will benefit from the opportunety to stay in the beautiful appartment and I hope to see you again this year. Christina
I have known Eliane for 9 years and we have traveled many times before. To Greece, Belgium, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Holland, France, Great Britain, Austria, Hungary, Switzerland, Germany and Italy. We have traveled within Brazil. To the north east, Região Serrana, Buzios and Rio de Janeiro. We have stayed in each others houses and traveled with our families. She is an optimistic traveler with a broad interest in history, culture, landscapes and food. She is very organized and watches over the people she travels and lives with. We have had the luck to be able to stay in the comfortable and wonderfully located apartment she offers on Airbnb. The neighborhood is wonderful and makes the rest of the city very easy to reach. The Metro entrance is something like 50 meters from the entrance of the building. The doormen are very friendly and helpful. Taxi drivers are very observant in Rio. So it is extremely easy to catch their attention. Sometimes even as you leave the building. We also had a lot of fun identifying the building while we were visiting the Cristo Redentor. You can actually see it with the naked eye when you look in the direction of the Pão de Açucar and the Guanabara bay. We highly recommend both the apartment and your host.
