I stayed here for 4 nights for the carnivaI. I booked a room on March 2014 but when we arrived they were overbooked. So we end up staying in a small cubicle. We did not really mind since this cubicle had aircon, TV, ceiling fan and a sofa bed which was enough for me and my boyfriend, not much space... More

We stayed at Fatima's from the 30/12/14 for 3 nights. Fatima was most friendly and despite not speaking very good English she made us feel very welcome in her home. Our double room was small and the shared bathroom was a pain but it was excellent value for money considering it was reveillion in Rio and shared rooms in nearby... More

We moved into this BnB after staying at a nearby Hostel in Leblon which we didnt like. We booked it last minute and upon arrival we were delighted with this place. Fatima was a great host, told us everything that was good to see nearby and left us to it. She didnt really intrude in anything we were doing... You... More

My stay was a total disaster simply because hours before my arrival time for a 2 night stay starting 30 dec 2014 I was informed by Fatima that although I had made my booking 8 months in advance and paid the deposit fee, the guest house was fully booked and therefore I would be assigned a tiny space not suitable...

Fantastic location, but that's where it ends I'm afraid. The room was small, the two of us, with backpacks barely got in the room. We were glad the location was so good as we spent very little time there. The shared bathroom was unexpected, but fine, if you don't mind walking down the hall. The aircon was old, noisy and...

Fantastic stay - will definitely return! I stayed for 6 nights in May 2014. Glad I didn't stay in a hotel; I think this was much more of a "local" experience. Like other reviews mention, Fatima was away and Raquel/Rachel was looking after the guests. There were also several other women in the house: Teresa (she cooks the best-smelling food!),... More

We stayed here for 5 nights. Fatima was away for a couple of days, but a friend of hers (Rachel) was very friendly. With her help we got to see lots of Rio (f.i. the cable car that gives you an amazing view of the vafelas Complexo do Alemão). And, for us important. She speaks English. Rooms are good compared...

Fatima is a great host! Leblon is the nicest neighbourhood in Rio. She was very accomodating even offering us a glass of wine! The only criticism I have is that when we needed to use the Internet she would get is her daughter's laptop to use and we felt like we were intruding - it'd be worth while investing in... More

Fatima was amazing with us - we were there in the run up to Carnival this year and she pulled out her fancy dress/costume bag and let us help ourselves to headbands and other fun stuff! It was amazing. Her house is lovely, the room is very lovely and the location is the best of all! With a grocery store... More
