Excelente apartamento, equipado con todo lo necesario en una muy buena zona, está en frente de bello palacio de Catete y bien cerca de los principales lugares de interés de Río. Su dueña Marisa realmente te ofrece una atención de primera y te ofrece ayuda si la requieres.

Recomiendo mucho este apartamento especialmente para extranjeros que van por primera vez a Río

Estive no apto com mais três colegas por uma semana e não tenho nada a reclamar! O apto é exatamente como mostram as fotos, a localizacao é otima, em rua residencial e tranquila. Fica super perto da estação do metrô(estaçao Catete), o que facilitou e muito nossa locomoção pela cidade. A proprietária é super atenciosa e caprichosa nos detalhes! Tanto gostamos que estamos voltando agora em junho!

I can honestly say the time that I spent in the apartment was wonderful. Once my plane landed in rio de Janeiro and I collected my luggage I caught a taxi and headed over to the apt. I contacted Marisa via whatsapp to inform her that I was on my way. She quickly responded and informed me that she would be waiting. One of the positives is that Marisa speaks wonderful english.. For all americans and other english speakers communication will not be a problem.

Once the taxi arrived in flamengo I again sent Marisa I quick text and she came down to meet me with a big warm smile. The building is gated with 24 hour security guard on hand. We boarded the elevator to the third floor in which Marisa showed me the apt. The apt was very clean with a well appointed gift basket waiting. The apt has air condition in the living room as well as in the bedroom. Each room/area with exception to the bathroom also has ceiling fans. The bathroom has a washing machine as well as a ceiling clothes hanger rack to dry the clothes after washing.

In the living room there is a beautiful view of the park. Very nice. The location is excellent. The metro train station is literally one block away from the building, and by the train station is a taxi post. Many taxi's line up and wait for customers. Everything one would need is in the area. etc. Marisa and here husband also have a restaurant directory in the apartment as well as a tourist directory of all the things to see. They also provide a large map of rio de janiero which outlines the city's locations.

Marisa and her husbands apartment is directly next door if there are any problems they are close by yet they offer you all the privacy you can ask for. I almost forgot to mention flemango beach is a very short walk away which also has a boardwalk for bike riding walking etc....

The neiborhood in which the apt is located is an middle class to upper middle class neiborhood. Very safe.

Located very close to lapa and copacabana. Just excellent .

What I loved most about everything was Marisa. She is a friend now. We talked about the culture of Brazil so many things. When I return in April this is where I hope to stay again....

O apartamento é uma graça, lindo e muito bem decorado. Tem todas as facilidades de um apartamento e conforto com lavadora de roupas, ar-condicionado, fogão, geladeira grande, banheiros e camas. Gostei também de ter várias toalhas de banho, lençóis e até toalhas de praia no guarda-roupas. O chuveiro elétrico é bem quentinho. Não deixou nada a desejar, tudo conforme as descrições do site. A dona do apê (Marisa) foi muito receptiva e atenciosa conosco, parece conhecida de anos, rsrs. Outro ponto favorável é a localização que é perto de tudo, como mercados, padarias, estação de metrô, ponto de ônibus/táxi, pizzaria, farmácia etc. Da janela da frente pode-se ver o museu da república, um bom passeio para aproveitar a viagem. Passei 4 dias maravilhosos ali e espero poder voltar em breve!!!

Todas as informações anunciadas estavam exatamente como encontradas. Como o meu objetivo principal era participar da meia maratona do Rio a localização foi perfeita, pois a chegada foi no aterro do Flamengo bem pertinho do apartamento e meus familiares não tiveram que deslocar.

Os proprietários, Marisa e seu esposo, são pessoas alegres, muito prestativas e contamos sempre com suas orientações.

Com certeza voltaremos e recomendo aos amigos.
