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!!

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.
