Clean , tidy , friendly , and quiet all as need be . An excellent guest !
Greg is a very welcoming and helpful host, and the room is very comfortable with its own bathroom. The house and area are both very safe and central to town. I would thoroughly recommend this accommodation for a lone traveller who wants to stay at a good price in decent quality accommodation with a really pleasant landlord.
I didn't get a chance to meet Greg (yet) during my stay, but had a great time with another Air BnB roomie Julia who also was staying at Greg's place.
All I have to say is if you stay here, Greg will go out of his way above and beyond your wildest expectations to help you get settled in Rio, even if he is camping with no phone (actually happened).
I highly recommend Greg's Place and am looking forward to meeting him for a beer and NHL hockey game.
Greg lives in a small village, which is very calm, in contrast to the very busy and lively neighborhood of Botafogo. Greg is a young American that has been living in Rio for a couple of months. He will be able to help you during your staying and definitely have very interesting conversations with you! The value proposition is excelent: if you want to stay in a calm place, with a very friendly host and don´t mind to stay in a small house, there is no better place in Rio!
I agree with all of the previous reviews in terms of safety, convenience of transport, charm of apartment, privacy of having one's own bathroom, and Greg's welcoming and enthusiastic introduction to the city - if I may add, he is a great cook, and I am thankful for tips to outings that would not have happened without his insight into the sociological and musical dynamics of the city. Obrigada
Great house in a great location! Easy to get to Copacabana or Ipanema beaches and a shot walk to the metro to get downtown. I liked the neighborhood alot, it was safe and there where a couple of fun bars nearby, but not so close that you could hear them.
The location of this place is great! Easy access to the beaches as well as the Centro with the metro right there and plenty of buses. The courtyard if great, and you have your own bathroom in the house. Greg is a knowledgeable host and knows where to go for a good time too! Great place for a great price!
Greg is a great person to stay with. He really helped me out of a bind, as I arrived in Rio with only several days notice that I would be moving here, and needed to find a place to stay. He was very attentive and responsive and flexible to my situation, and very welcoming and helpful; he made me feel right at home immediately. The house is ideally located in a safe neighborhood of Botafogo, close to everything, including the metro. It is quiet, as it is set back from the street.
Truly, it is a pleasure to review Greg. He was in our home for only 9 days attending and participating the 7th World Urbun Forum carried out in our city of Medellin. We would receive him again! He is a very quiet, organized and respectful guest. Thank you Greg for giving us the opportunity to have you in our Home. You are very nice person and you are very welcome any time you want to come back
Super nice bunch of young people, Greg was great with communicating and left our place in great shape.
Thanks and we are glad you enjoyed ADKs trip.
Greg was my guest for one night. He was clean an respectful. I would recommend him as a guest to future hosts.
Greg is a great host ! I do recommend him for the entire airbnb comunity.
Greg has been a great guest, friendly, interesting to talk, clean and nice guy, always very respectful with the house, he was very specific with the plans he had in Mexico and we always kept good communication. Julian and me really enjoyed having Greg at home and we would receive him again happily.
Greg is a very fun, entertaining and proative person. I didnt have any problem with him. It was nice to get to know his project on urbanization and listen to his adventures in South America. I never got bored with him around , besides that, he is a nice cooker.I definately recommned him as a guest.
Greg was a great renter, prompt with his communications and emails, quick and easy key hand off and he was a super clean guest. Apt looked amazing after he left. I really enjoyed meeting you and I hope everything went well for you during your stay. Next time you need to come back to Brooklyn Heights I hope you get in touch!
I can recomand you Greg, it's a nice guys!
Je vous recommande Greg, il a été très sympathique.
Gregg was a great guest. He was courteous, clean and respectful. We would have him back anytime.
Gregg was here writing a report about his journalist work at the Global Economic Forum! Most of his time was working and he is a quiet, clean, respectful and he loves Brazilian culture and knows a lot abot ur country. He will be welcome always.
Greg is a thoughtful, active, and generous guy. I've been Greg's guest or at least dinner guest in Philadelphia and Rio de Janeiro, and he's always exceeded average expectations for a good host and been super-awesome. I highly recommend Greg and his hospitality.
I've known Greg for several years now and over the span of 2 continents. Enthusiastic and energetic, he's organized and meticulous, sensitive and considerate. And aside from that, he's a cool guy!
