Osmar was a great host. We were very warmly received, and he helped us feel very welcome and at home in his apartment. The room and bathroom are both clean and organized - towels were also provided. He was very knowledgeable about the best tourist spots in RJ, and helped us book our trip to the Cristo Redentor / Corcovado. I especially appreciated Osmar's patience in explaining how to take public transport / buses and in giving general tips / suggestions about things to do and places to visit.
Overall it was a nice experience.
We can hardly recomend Osmars accomodation and himself! :) He is a really helpfull and nice person with the best sence of humor! We had so much fun with him! He gave us very good recomodations and helped us to explore Rio! The accomodation is perfectly located in Ipanema, very close to the beach and very clean. You feel very comforable! Also Osmar is a really decent host and serves a nice breakfast with the best selfmade jam!
If we travel again to Rio we definitly will book again his flat!
Osmar is nice, pleasant and is always willing to help! He knows a lot about Rio. The location is great, it was really easy for us to move around the city - there are plenty of buses. The room is clean and comfy. He is really prepared to receive guests and, best of all, he welcomes them. We definitely recommend him!
Perfecto, limpio,excelente ubicación, Osmar muy amable y nos ayudó en TODO lo que necesitamos para recorrer Río.
Volvería siempre a alojarme ahí.
Muchas gracias Osmar y saludos a Pedro y Julie
Osmar ist ein sehr guter Gastgeber. Er nimmt sich Zeit wenn man etwas braucht und ist sehr diskret. Geht auf die Wünsche der Gäste, insbesondere was Frühstück angeht, gerne ein. Kann nur Positives berichten und ihn uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen.
It has been a pleasure to be in the Osmar’s house. He was really kind and helped us every time we need it. We could use the apartment and get our own key. The room was super clean and comfortable. The wifi connection and the air conditioner worked perfectly. The apartment was really pretty. The neighborhood is luxury and quietly. There is private security in every building. The location is great: near the lagoon and a few blocks of the beach. We would come back. It has been like to be in our own house! ******
Ha sido un placer alojarme en la casa de Osmar. Él fue muy amable y estuvo atento a todas nuestras necesidades. Tuvimos libertad para disponer del lugar y nuestra propia llave para ingresar cuando quisiéramos. Osmar resolvió todas nuestras dudas, nos aconsejó, preparó el desayuno cada mañana y hasta se ocupó de conseguirnos taxi cuando lo necesitamos. La habitación súper cómoda y limpia. La conexión wifi y el aire acondicionado funcionaron a la perfección. El departamento es muy bonito y decorado con muy buen gusto. El barrio es lujoso y tranquilo. Hay seguridad en cada edificio. La ubicación es ideal: cerca de la laguna y a pocos metros de la playa. Volveríamos sin dudarlo. Nos sentimos como en nuestra propia casa!
I enjoyed my stay at Osmar's place. Osmar is very friendly and has good sense of humour.
The room is quite spacious and the location is great. Ipanema beach is very close (two minutes walk). If you have your mind set on Copacabana then it is better to cycle or take a bus.
Osmar has phenomenal knowledge of the city and its attraction: prices, bus lines, various types of restaurants and bars, places to see and when to see them, cool hikes in the area, etc. He is always eager to help and I found it quite useful.
First time doing b'nb and couldn't be greater at osmar place. He was very kind to us and answered all our questions. Best location to be in Rio. With any doubt I would chose his place again.
Osmar is a great host! Time spent in his place was amazing. The location of his flat is really perfect, you can reach everything very quick by foot - Ipanema beach is just couple of blocks away. I highly recommend it!
Our trip was awesome, in large part due to Osmar.
Arrival: Prior to us leaving for Brazil, Osmar messaged us to ask when we were arriving and provide a couple options for getting from the airport. He told us he'd wait up for us to arrive (we were arriving late at night), and he answered all my questions about how, precisely, to find and get on the bus. True to his word, he was waiting for us when we got in. He gave us quick tips and guidelines (e.g., drink bottled water, wear lots of sunscreen, these are the best things to see, this is where to eat, etc.), and he also gave us a couple of maps and other pamphlets with tourist information. On top of the maps, he told us specific bus lines that we could take to get to specific attractions and showed us everything we wanted to know on the map.
The room / apartment: The room is bigger than it looks in the photo. We didn't spend much time in it, but it was sufficient for a place to sleep. There was air conditioning that worked, but we left it off when not in the room. We shared a bathroom with Pedro, the other person living in the apartment, which worked out fine. The water wasn't super hot in the bathroom, but given how hot it was outside, you didn't want it to be.
Location: The apartment is a couple blocks from the beach, and two blocks from the lake. It's surrounded by restaurants, both cheap eats and nicer places. The metro is easy to reach, ~10 minute walk, and the bus stop with a number of lines was only a couple blocks. It's a good area; we felt safe.
Eating/Drinking: Osmar has a filtered water supply in his house, which he let us use. This saved us a ton of money on bottled water. He provided breakfast every morning, generally some sort of fruit (e.g., papaya, watermelon) and toast, along with homemade jam (which was great!) One day, the night we came home extremely late from the Samba parade, he had made a cake.
General help: We were gone most of the day, but we generally saw Osmar briefly in the morning and the evenings. He always had helpful tips to offer on where to go and how to get there. He also helped us when we needed something translated or other specific help (e.g., how and when to see a soccer game). His help was especially welcome during Carnaval, with so many possible options, and not much easily accessible information on what to do. His English was quite good, and he has clearly had lots of experience both traveling and interacting with other travelers, which made him a particularly good host.
This was our (mine and my husband's) first time staying somewhere through AirBnB, and Osmar made it a great experience. I'm glad we chose to stay here, rather than a hotel.
