“Incredible studio with very helpful/friendly owner”
Reviewed June 23, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My wife and I stayed in these accommodations for the world cup and it was absolutely fantastic. The studio itself is cozy, but if you're in Rio and staying inside your room all day - you're doing it wrong. The location is second to none - one block from the metro, beach, good eats, and less than a $20 (US) cab ride to just about anywhere you want to go (Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf Mountain, Copacabana). We found there was sufficient space for luggage storage and everything we needed. There is a stove and facilities for cooking, but we did not use them whatsoever. The airconditioner was very effective and kept us cool at night so that should not be an issue. The value for this place was incredible - even during the world cup. The neighborhood felt relatively safe. There are several doormen that watch the street and there is a street guard that patrols regularly for all of the apartments on the block. Finally, the owner is wonderful and very helpful. She gave us a tour upon arrival and showed us her favorite spots and how to get around. I strongly recommend this place to anyone staying in Rio. I know I will be personally recommending it to friends who want to make a trip.

As usual, we looked to TripAdvisor to help us select our accommodation, and again the community came up trumps.
The apartment is as described, compact but fully equipped with the basics, but who cares ?!

150m from Ipanema Beach, 10 mins (max) from Copa, a major bus stop literally around the corner and the end of the Metro less than 150m (unfortunately the metro was closed due to the expansion of the line that's being done but there's a free bus service to another metro station). Transport to anywhere in Rio right on your doorstep.
Oh, and across the street is a 24hr supermarket which provided our warm bread for breakfast (it also does breakfast).
Enough of the apartment, now the owner.
Linda was extremely helpful to us. We literally gave her about 6 different sets of dates, due to uncertainty about our actual flights but at all times our emails were promptly answered and we were assured that there would be no problem, and there wasn't. She provides free wi-fi, a very useful guide to transport, Exchange Bureau, eating out and even a laundrette. She also gave us details of a guide, who we used for airport transfers and a personal guided tour, at less than most companies were charging.

Thoroughly recommended ***** !
