I am on a long-term stay in this apartment and it has been a very positive experience. Marcia and her husband Luiz have been extremely responsive. The apartment is right next to a bus stop which buses pass by every 5 minutes, and which connects to the Metro at Largo do Machado. So although it's up a hill, it's easy to reach. One thing I didn't realize until I got here was that it's very much a collective apartment, with as many as five or six people living here at a time. I'm not sure if it's always this way but right now everyone here is at least on a medium-term stay. A couple of the rooms have air conditioning; mine doesn't, but even on the hottest nights a good overhead fan made the heat manageable. There is a decent amount of noise on the street, but, that is part and parcel of living in a city. It has been a while since I lived with roommates but everyone here has been polite and respectful. If you're considering coming here for a long stay definitely get in touch with Marcia and she will answer any questions you have. I've found it to be a very good value and I'm happy I chose it.
Marcia and Luiz were helpful in getting me acquainted with the area, kind and courteous, and altogether excellent hosts. The accommodations were exactly what I was hoping for -- clean, simple, quiet, and relaxing. Highly Recommended.
We felt welcomed and safe from the very first moment .Marcia, Louis and Bianca were there to help us from our first day, showing us around town and the local shortcuts. They also helped us with our phones, took us to local attractions. Very easy to talk with and breakfast was provided every morning. We felt safe all the time in the house and around the neighbourhood. Nice place, room was a good size and WIFI was very good. Close to town, 10/15min walk to bus and metro. For two young first time travellers, it was the perfect place to stay. Thank you for making us feel part of the family. We will definitely be back.
Thank you. Alex + Ariki
Muy buena experiencia. Realmente fui bien recibido y me hicieron sentir como en casa. Estoy muy agradecido por haber ayudado a que mi estadía en esa bella ciudad fuera tan cómoda, sinceramente espero volver pronto. Recomiendo hospedarse con Marcia.
As a frequent visitor to Rio, this was my best stay. Everything was as described, the hosts were very friendly and helpful and I would be happy to stay at Marcia's place again. Something worth mentioning is that besides the beautiful views and good location, the room sizes are also exceptionally big for Rio de Janeiro - so it's great value!
My stay at Marcia's house in Botafogo could not have been any better. I felt extremely comfortable during the two months I lived there. During my stay, Marcia's daughters, Bianca and Tainah, administered the house. They were both very friendly and helpful and made me feel at home right from the beginning. The house can be reached by climbing two sets of outdoor staircases that could be challenging to climb in the beginning. However, they become easier to do so. The fact that the house is somewhat distanced from the rest of Botafogo makes it extremely peaceful and relaxing. I definitely appreciated this after long days of working and sightseeing. I would strongly recommend Marcia's house for all travelers to Rio.
Mi estadia en la casa de Marcia en el barrio de Botafogo no podria haber sido mejor. Me senti muy comodo durante los dos meses que vivi alli. Durante mi estadia la casa fue administrada por las hijas de Marcia, Bianca y Tainah. Las dos fueron muy amables, me ayudaron con todo lo que necesite y hicieron que me sintiera en casa desde el inicio. Se llega a la casa subiendo dos escaleras que pueden ser un poco desafientes en el comienzo. Sin embargo, despues el subirlas se vuelve mucho mas facil. El hecho de localizarse un poco separada del resto del barrio de Botafogo hace que los alrededores sean pacificos y la casa muy relajante. Definitivamente, aprecie esto despues de largos dias de trabajo y turismo. Recomendaria la casa de Marcia en Botafogo sin reservaciones para todos los viajeros a Rio de Janeiro.
My stay was the best! A special retreat up on the side of the hill in the forest but just steps away from the city. Amazing, the views out from my bedroom terrace. Charming and cozy. Perfeito! Marcia and her daughters are great hostesses and made me feel very welcomne and feel right at home. Thank you for a great stay!
It was a great pleasure to find a host like Marcia. Her house is big, nice and had several rooms to choose from when I arrived. There is a big kitchen, nice well-equipped living room, it is clean and roomy. The house situates on the hillside that provides a nice view over Botafogo already worth the money. The position of a house makes it rather quiet compared to some parts of Rio.
My room had a private bathroom included, pleasant balcony with a hammock and the Cristo Redentor peeping over the hill into my bed. :) Marcia's lovely daughters are taking care of laundry, cleaning the house and making you comfortable so there cannot be much better place to be. Felt like a prince there.
Thanks a lot and I definitely will be back here!
Was such unforgetable and incredible experience!!!!!!!!!
Thanks so much to Marcia and her family for her hospitality and kidness.
I really enjoyed the time i spend in Rio at Marcia's place. I highly recommend staying with Marcia and her family if you want see Rio!! Marcia and her family are really nice, friendly and warm people! They just give you a feeling like your at home. The house is very beautiful and great, and the spot is perfect. From there it's so easy to travel through Rio because it's so central. I really could tell you a lot but i think you have to see it for yourself. When i go back to Rio in the future i would definitely go back to Marcia !!!
Marcia and her family were really friendly and we enjoyed them staying with us alot. I hope they enjoyed their time in Berlin as well and will visit again one day!
Marcia is a wonderful and generous host who goes out of her way to make her guests feel comfortable. She is very open minded and interested in other people, and has had many different experiences. She is a vegetarian and really cares for animals. Her home is spacious and airy and she keeps it very clean.
I've know Marcia since my trip to Rio a few weeks ago. I enjoyed a quiet & comfortable stay, with a very hospitable family. If you'd like to experience Rio, while staying with a host family, residing in a safe & easily accessible neighborhood, this is the place!
Marcia is a wonderful guest who is very friendly and fun to have around. When I couldn't host her I was able to help her get another place and my friends were very happy with her as a guest. I hope to host Marcia in the future.
