“Can't Beat It!”

You can't fault this apartment. It has everything you need and a really cosy feel to it and most importantly it is seconds from copacabana beach.

We booked the apartment as we were staying in Rio for New Years Eve and it was a much better value option compared to the hotels in the area. The apartment has everything you would need and couldn't be in a better location for the first time visitor. Apartment is small and I couldn't imagine more than two people comfortably staying, but it does have a cosy feel and has all the facilities you would need and everything works perfectly including WIFI and AC.

The staff on reception don't soeak English and there was a little confusion when we were trying to get our deposit back, but all fine in the end and they always welcome you with a smile!

Carmen couldn't have been more helpful, quick to reply to emails and answer various questions, including us changing our dates!

As a cheaper option, especially at new year and during carnival I can't recommend this place enough.

“Can't find fault”

I booked this apartment back in January based on the TripAdvisor reviews and was glad to see they had all been spot on. It's a stone throw from Copacabana Beach and has transport links just around the corner on Av. Nossa Sra. de Copacabana and Rua Raul Pompeia. The metro station at Ipanema/General Osorio is no more than a 15 minute stroll away. Ipanema beach and surrounding shops/restaurants are all within walking distance though public transport throughout the city is cheap.

The staff at reception may not speak any English but this can be overcome with a few basic phrases. Reception is open at all hours and you have to be buzzed in by them. The apartment complex is very secure and clean.

The pictures of the apartment are a true representation of what to expect. It is perfectly comfortable for two people and has everything we needed for our one week stay in Rio.

We flew into Santos Dumont Airport and grabbed a taxi which cost around 30Brl. I did have to show the driver the street location on google maps and an instruction (provided by the owner) to enter the street from Av. Atlantica as its a one way street. We flew out of Galeo International Airport which cost around 60Brl from the door of the apartment.

Great apartment in which to explore Rio.

The studio was an incredible location, less than a block from Copacapana Beach Pier 5. Many things were in walking distance: great restaurants, bars and various Bus-Stations, Metro, Guided tours.
Free Wifi was a huge plus.

Everything was clean. There were towels, soap, dishes, silverware and glasses.

The receptionists were friendly and helpful.

This Studio ist located ideally, just a few steps away from Copacapana beach on the one side and close to various Bus-Stations and a Metro as well as the large Avenue with various Shops, Restaurants and Supermarkets on the other side. Despite its location, it is quiet.
Everything was very clean, the furniture was modern and functionable.
Free Wifi available.
The receptionists always help and give advice, if needed. All in all a great studio which can be recommended to everyone!
