I stayed this House for two weeks, and had a very relaxed time. The apartment is secure and located in a safe area. Luiz helped me a lot to arrange rooms and transportations. Even for Asians, if you can speak English a little, you can stay this House without any problem and enjoy Rio.

This is odd. After the corporate charms of the Royal Tulip in Brasila I was looking forward to a bit of down-home charm as the TA reviews seemed to promise. It didn't quite work out. Let's start with the good stuff - the guest house is right on the spot in the main drag of Leblon, a young and vibrant... More

This family-run BB is right in the middle of Leblon, just 3 minutes from basically anything, including Ipanema beach, nice shops, good restaurants, and some popular bars. The breakfast is amazing: fresh fruit and juices, as well as varying specialties, such as cake, chocolates, exotic jams, etc. Rooms are clean, though arguably not particularly stylish. If you are sensitive to... More

We loved: the friendly welcome from the owner, for whom every guest is a special guest, and for whom nothing is too much trouble; the first floor location of the B&B; the location within an hour of the airport, and half an hour of Rio central; the excellent transport services, bus routes, nearby Metro station, and taxis right on the...

Luiz is a wonderful, super nice host who speaks English and helps you to find concerts or to get tickets for the Corcovado train. The breakfast is great, too, although no eggs were served. Being above a pub it is of course not the most quiet accommodation but you are in very short distance to the Leblon and Ipanema beaches.... More

My friend and I stayed here for 2 weekends. Overall, had a great experience. The neighborhood was perfect, Luiz was very welcoming/hospitable, and every thing was clean and comfortable. ---After staying 2 nights, Luiz agreed to drive us to our next destination 2 1/2 hours away! Not many people would be so accommodating and helpful. Thank You!!

Had a great time at Luiz's. He's super nice and helpful and the room was nice a big, though decorated pretty old school. Feels like you're staying at a friend's house, which has it's own charm. The facilities were very clean and the breakfast was simple, but delicious, with lots of fresh fruit and fresh squeezed juice. The place is... More

I just got back from Rio and stayed 3 nights at the guest house. It was an amazing experience. Luiz was super accommodating, very patient with his time, and was a tremendous help in many ways. He makes you feel right at home and I was able to meet other travelers as well. The location is excellent and Luiz, who... More

What can I say? I wanted a place that was close to the action, close to the beach and would offer me a comfortable place to stay. This met all my criteria and more. My host was fantastic, he couldn't have been more helpful with tips on travel by bus and cab. There is a shared bathroom but as long... More
