Sonia is a fabulous host! Her apartment is in a nice, save area only three blocks from the Copacabana beach. If you stay at her place you will get a lot of valuable advices about Rio de Janeiro. Thank you for everything Sonia!!

Sonia's B&B was exactly what we had hoped for - somewhere safe, clean, 'homely' and with the added bonus of an awesome host. Sonia is not only extremely friendly and helpful, but is the perfect host that really makes you feel like you are staying at your friend's place rather than a stranger. She also speaks perfect English! The apartment... More

Sonia is a lovely lady. More like a friend than a entrepreneur. She speaks English very well, which is exceptional in Brasil (yes, also in Rio). Not only you pay less money for your room.. Hotels in Rio are very, very expensive! Sonia also makes you fell welcome in a pleasant personel way. We really like to recommend Sonia's B&B!

I stayed at Sonia's for 2 weeks while studying at a local language school. The location is brilliant - a few minutes walk from the metro and from the beach as well as right beside the shops and restaurants. The apartment is great and gives a real feel of fifties-style Copacabana. It isn't modern like some of the places you... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
I live in a spacious apartment in the very heart of Copacabana and like to rent TWO bedrooms for travelers. There is a well equiped kitchen (you may use it) and the washing machine is available. Good free Wi-fi conection all around the house. The place is cozy, near Copacabana Beach and also to all shops, markets, bars and the subway. There is a nice veranda where you can smoke, have some drinks and meals, or just relax at the hammock. The neighborhood is safe and the building has 24 hours secutity. The rooms are very confortable and with good quality linen, as well as the towels i provide (100% cotton). Both rooms have a nice powerful ceiling fan and room 1 has also air conditioning. Both rooms share one bathroom, i have one for my own. I am a journalist, well traveled, speak english and some french. I understand that travelers like to know about the city and about the places that are not for tourists only and i will be glad to help you in anyway i can to make your experience more enjoyable. I am a very friendly spirit, like to comunicate with people, but don't worry: I am also very concerned about the guest's privacy. :-) Greetings from Rio. Hope to see you soon...
