We spent a week in Manaus. The apartment is small, clean, in a tiny complex in a residential/market neighborhood. It's safe but looks messy on the street. There are multiple bus lines nearby, we used them to go to Ponte Negra or the Centro. Small shops and restaurants are near. Terho was very quick to respond to any request. The AC worked well, the cold showers are welcome in the Manaus heat. All the apartments in the complex were for airbnb. The wifi worked great, the appliances were more than enough for our needs. Great overall experience.
Terho was a terrific host, very quick to communicate and helpful in accomodating my changes in travel plans due to unforeseen circumstances. The apartment was a good deal for the price. It is small but clean with A/C and reliable wi-fi. As others have indicated, the neighborhood is not the most hygenic or quiet, but it feels quite safe and there are plenty of conveniences within walking distance, bus stops very close by. Additionally, Terho's stepson was extremely friendly and helpful for transportion as an economical and safe taxi alternative. I recommend this apartment!
The apartment was a great deal for the price. In such a hot place, the air worked fine. Furnishings, kitchen, bathroom- everything worked fine. It is found in an area outside of the city centre, with a strong guard gate and appearing very safe. I got around by walking and taking the bus. Terho's son also offered his taxi service for my very early departures, which was convenient and at a better price than regular taxis.
Terho's responses were incredibly fast and helpful. The gentleman who received us at the hotel was kind as well. The apartment was clean and served its purpose well. It was in a small apartment complex. The shower only had cold water - but that's pretty standard for Manaus. It had both Brazil and US electrical plugs. The neighborhood is mostly residential with a slightly industrial feel - there's not much you can get to walking, so a car will be helpful. There is a very small shop nearby for buying water and bread and some other basics. The air conditioner worked well.
The apartment was great and it was nice to be in a neighborhood that one normally would not be able to experience as a tourist. Terho was very accommodating and the overall experience was great!
A hospedagem em Manaus foi excelente, fomos recebidos com muita hospitalidade e atencao pelos anfitrioes Terho e Alzira. O apartamento e muito agradavel e limpo com localizacao conveniente entre a Ponta Negra e o centro da cidade. O local e ideal para um casal de ferias que deseja experienciar a vida de um tipico bairro local de Manaus. A internet funciona muito bem, e as unicas melhorias sugeridas sao a melhoria na recepcao do sinal de satelite para a TV e instalar uma ducha quente no banheiro. No mais, muito felizes com o apartamento e os anfitrioes. Obrigada!
We really enjoyed our stay at Terho's apartment. It was close to a couple grocery stores and restaurants. Would recommend this place to anyone who wants to stay in Manaus.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Terhos apartment in Manaus for a week during the World Cup and it was great. He and his wife were very helpful with anything we needed.
We were able to walk down to the market and buy fresh fish and meat and cook in the apartment. The bus stop is close by as well. The apt is about 20 minutes from downtown via taxi and about an hour by bus. Overall good experience specially for the great price.
Very nice neighborhood! There is just few tourists so it's nice to see how brasilian lives. House was clean and nice. Terho was the best host. If you have a problem hi fix it
Terho and his family were so helpful and the place was very convenient. Thank you so much!
