It's a nice apartment, and Francisco is a very very nice person. We truly enjoyed our stay there. But the price is way above the market for the area. About 35% overpriced. For the same price I paid for this room, I could have stayed at several nice area hotels...Arena, Vermont, Ipanema Inn, Ipanema Plaza, San Marco, Everest, etc. Could...

I felt like I was hosted in a very unique apart-hotel. It's in a perfect location, with a fantastic view and very spacious penthouse. It surpassed my expectations as I felt it was better than what was announced. The host Francisco is very kind, helpful and easily accessible and always left the place clean. Strongly recommend!

Management response:

Hi Célia: Thank you so much for such kind words. I am very happy to be able to make your stay in Rio nicer. I hope to host you in the future, for longer period.... Thank you! Best regards, Francisco

The apartment is very private, spacious and unique! It was hot and humid when we were there so the lovely air conditioning was a blessing. The outside decks provide the opportunity...
