Very friendly welcome by the owner of the apartment. Situated in leafy Ipanema, a three-minute walk to the beach. I have never experienced such a clean, fully equipped and tastefully decorated apartment in Brazil. Interesting art and souvenirs from all over the world adorn the walls. The apartment is situated at the back of the building, no view to speak of, but very quiet and with a nice little balcony. High-quality furnishings in the livingroom, bedroom – both of course airconditioned – and the huge kitchen. Very good internet connction, DVD-player, I Pod dock – it is everything there. The apartment is a “private apartment” situated in an apartment hotel, so it will be cleaned every day. Very good security. All in all – I can recommend this apartment highly for singles or couples, who want to stay near the great beach and wonderful restaurants of Ipanema but also want to have the opportunity to go to the market around the corner and to cook own meals. In a few months the subway station “Osorio” around the corner will be open again, which will make sightseeing trips to other parts of Rio much more convenient. I used buses without any problems and the Cariocas are very helpful and friendly people (To speak a few words Portuguese helps dramatically). So if you get lost, there will be helpful people everywhere. Ipanema is one of the posh areas in Rio, very safe, full of nice shops and good restaurants – but do yourself the favor and have also a closer look to other parts of Rio.
