Great apartment in a great location in botafogo. It is a 10 minute walk to sugar loaf which you can also see from the apartment. Lovely safe area, nice bar down the street and a great kilo place round the corner. Lots of taxis to get you to copacabana in 10 minutes, ipanema in about 20 depending on the traffic.
WiFi really good at the apartment too and there is loads of outdoor space with various terraces including fantastic views of botafogo bay one way, and Christ the redeemer from the top roof terrace.
Sergio was a great host, very helpful meeting us to help us settle in and offered to take us out for dinner. A very nice fella.
Recommend it if you want to stay outside of the tourist trap areas in a safe Rio area.
Wonderfull place, beautiful view! Everything as described, Sergio was very helpful and available before we got there, even if it was a last minute thing. highly recommend this host and apartment. Thank you Sergio!
This place has a lovely view and great outdoor space (several terraces) however the owner does not maintain the property very well and this detracts from what otherwise could be a really great apartment. Also the area where the apartment is located has many busy roads and highways and thus "local" dining or food shopping requires quite a trek. Lastly the property's contact, Sergio, while very helpful before we arrived. did not respond to any emails or phone calls after our arrival. Given that, at times, we had no electricity and no internet access his lack of responsiveness was most worrying! We hope this candid feedback will encourage the owner to ensure that future guests have a better experience.
Very good flat which is exactly how it is presented by Sergio.
Besides Sergio is very available in case we have any problem / question. Thanks a lot once again!
Excelente experiencia no Rio! Localizacao estrategica para ficar perto de todos os lugares interessantes.
Sergio was an excelent host. Everithing went fine.
The appoartment is really nice and very well located.
I strongly recomend!
agrabavel nossa estancia na casa do Sergio, redescubrir o rio i conhecer un carioca autentico como Sergio,abierto amavel comunicativo atento conosco en todo momento ,espero manter o contato i si puder ir nessa cobertura magnifica no revellon,,obrigado
Sergio was the BEST!!! The apartment is right in Botafogo and a stones throw from the Marina and Beach. IBM Corp Headquarters is around the corner so it gives you a sense of how safe the area is.
The apartment was perfect - very spacious. There is 24 hour door man and the te maid comes in every day and cleans....she even washed our clothes! There is a place to eat empanadas or simple breakfast/lunch. Also, there is a small grocery to purchase water/cereals/snacks for the apartment. The shower was really good....lots of hot water and clean towels are provided daily by the maid. There is a cab stand at the corner, so it super easy to get around. Sugar Loaf (a must do) is just 12 min walk. Budget for 25 Real to get to most places in RIO (Lampa, Ipanema, Copacabana). Buses are much cheaper alternative.
Overall, if you want a really good place to stay and an owner that is super helpful and attentive.....stay here!!
Great apartment that is very close to everything. Sergio was very nice, and helpful and gave us great information when we asked. Would recommend staying here!
Sergio was a great host and the apartment is amazing! you can walk to copacabana and sugar loaf as well as the mall in botafogo. the cafe across the street on ave. pasteur is great-such a cheap and tasty breakfast. four of us stayed in the apt. and we appreciated the flexible check-out. sergio is very reachable and invited us to a soccer game while we were in town-how sweet is that?? while the apt. can fit 5 peeps, i would say 4 is better since the other two-person bed has a slant in the middle which can be uncomfortable. just so you know, the building also tends to have electricity surges so it's best not to run all three ACs and decide to take a shower simultaneously since that might blow the circuit breaker (not a big deal-you guys can turn the switches back on). Overall, we totally loved our stay and sergio and will definitely come back to rent from him!!
Sergio was a wonderful guest. When he arrived, we spent about trips and other subjects.He is a very organized person,and left the room as if it hadn’t been used at all.I highly recommend Sergio to anyone who is looking for a nice guest.He promised to keep in touch,and I really hope to see him again in the near future.
Sergio foi um ótimo hóspede, educado, descontraído e com muitas ideias para compartilhar. Valeu Sergio. Espero conhecer um dia a sua penthouse no Rio :)
