I am someone who expected to find a sustainable way of life in this world .
This flat is great! First of all, Angelica was very nice and helpful the time before and when we arrived. She was waiting for us in the Apt., then showed us the apartment and gave us some tips for the city. Very nice location, close to a Metro station and walking distance from Lapa neighborhood. The apartment was clean, well furnished, nice decorated. I totally recommend Angelica's flat.
Angelica was an amazing host. Waited for us in the apartment for 3 hours longer was originally expected due our delayed flight (which actually meant staying there until 1am!). Once we got there - despite how late it was - she made sure that we knew about everything in the flat, gave us advice about transport and where we could locally for drinks and things like that. The apartment is somehow nicer than it looks in the photos. It comfortably fit the 4 of us (2 of us shared a bed) and its super located right in the heart of Rio. Highly recommended! Thanks Angelica.
A great apartment in a perfect (email hidden)y a few minutes walk from the metro.
The apartment was clean and well-equipped.The host Angelica is one of the best
I have ever meet. Even without communication in English we arrange everything and she help us very much.
Great place to stay.
Definitely highly recommended...!!!!
Большая квартира в идеальном нахождение. В нескольких минутах ходьбы от метро.
В квартире было чисто и хорошо оборудованный.Хозяйка Анжелика одна из лучших
Я когда-либо встретиться. Даже без связи на английском языке, мы организировали все, и она помогла нам очень много.
Великолепное место для отдыха.
The apartment is wonderful. It's spacious and well appointed. Angelica was very nice, and even though she spoke Portuguese (and I only English) we found ways to communicate during check in and check out. She was very helpful in explaining the features of the apartment and even spent some time helping us to get our cell phones working in Rio. The apartment is less than a block from the Gloria metro station, which was incredibly convenient for us in getting around, especially to places like Ipanema and Copacabana beaches. Highly recommended.
Very convenient location, ideal to enjoy the city center of Rio and beaches
Very clean and quiet appartment
Very nice host (she was there prior to us on our arrival and we arranged a meeting to give her back the keys on the day we left)
Very good experience overall!
A wonderful apartment in a perfect location a few minutes walk from the metro. We were here during the carnaval but the place was very quiet even though there was a street party 200 m down the street! Despite a slight language barrier communication with Angelica worked very well and she was extremely helpful with everything.
This is a real gem of a space - well designed, well furnished, well lit and with plenty of character!
Practically speaking, there's plenty of space, the kitchen is well stocked, the bathroom is spacious and there's nice hardwood flooring throughout. The AC worked well in the summer heat, helping to keep the whole apt relatively cool. But most of the time we just kept the windows open which did the job well - and no mosquitos!! BIG PLUS.
The bedroom is large with plenty of closet space, and a nice floor-to-ceiling window. The bed is comfy and there's lots of shelf space. There's also a great extra room - which we dubbed the "yoga" room because of it's tranquil & open vibe.
Angelica was a fantastic host: generous, friendly and available without being overbearing. She left us a huge pile of plums, a few beers and water. There were some other left over items that she let us help ourselves to (castanha do para!!) and we didn't want for anything in terms of kitchen ware & utilities.
We can't recommend this place enough. We spent our anniversary here and there are plenty of great restaurants within walking distance (check out Casa da Suica & Vila Rica) as well as a great juice bar (Hobby Lanches).
We live in Rio, so we weren't looking for touristy things to do, but that kind of stuff is super accessible from here. The Metro is a block away, and can take you anywhere from Tijuca (north) all the way to Ipanema (south) - making almost the entire city easily accessible.
The area isn't posh, it's more down to earth. If you want a taste of real Rio life, this is a great spot & neighborhood to find that.
Best anniversary yet! Thanks Angelica :)
The apartment is located near the metro and within easy walking distance to Lapa and Santa Teresa. We loved being part (email hidden)ly neighborhood--farmer's markets, luncheonettes, street vendors, and people living their lives. Was great being a part o the real Brazil!
Angelica was super-super nice! Whenever I had any inquiries she immediately replied and was very helpful, way beyond the usual.
The apartment is great, airy, with lots of room. Location is very good - in easy walking distance to Lapa and Santa Teresa but not too close, so it's not noisy. The Metro station is close, we could easily get anywhere in the city. The furnishing is nice and practical. Definitely recommended!
Thanks Angelica, we had a great time!
Mt bom o apt, bem confortavel perto de td. só precisa arrumar o chuveiro. Angelica uma pessoa mt simpatica e atenciosa grande abs.Hélio
