Turned up at Marta's Guest House to find that the manager had forgotten our booking, leaving us stranded in Rio with nowhere to stay. She kept us waiting in the reception for 20 minutes with no idea what was going on before speaking to us, and didn't even come downstairs but told us over the apartment phone. She didn't apologise...

Wow!!, i stayed in the cheapest room from March 25th to April 5th. The Host, Marta, made sure that my entire vacation was an experience to remember. Im a 53 canadian and needed a stress relief and it was that and more. The price and the location is the best you will find. The penthouse is located 1/4 from the... More

We've spent great two weeks at Marta's Guesthose, in February 2015. Marta was very nice and helpful from the first contact (via email) to book the accommodation. She was a kind a cheerful host, just the type you'd expect in Rio. We stayed at Aquamarne suite, which was nicely decorated with an ensuite bathroom. The suite was good size, the... More

Wonderful location and great view from large deck of bay at Copacabana. Great breakfast. Best of all is Marta, our knowledgable and gregarious host. Nothing is too much for her. Despite being sick at the time, she joined (guided) us for a very late night at the Sambodrome for the Carnaval's Parade of Champions. Very highly recommended.

Wow! This has to have the best view in all of Rio. My husband and I had 3 nights in Rio and wanted to make it special. We don't like staying in modern American hotels but still wanted something comfortable with charm. Marta's Guesthouse is a little 'slice of heaven'. From the moment we walked in we were blown away...

I stayed here with my three-year-old daughter and found the guesthouse to be a real refreshing change from the overpriced chain hotels nearby. The owner, Marta, made us feel very welcome and was wonderful with my daughter. The guesthouse itself is stunning, in a lovely art deco building, and the views from the balcony on the top floor are simply... More

I was attending a conference in Rio and did a lot of research for places to stay. My wife and I decided to stay here and absolutely loved it. Communication was speedy and helpful from the start. A secure building in a safe neighbourhood, walking distance to shops, restaurants, transport and located 50m from Copacabana beach - part way between... More

It was reading the glowing reviews that made us book Marta's in preference to the many other hotels on Copacabana beach and it was the correct decision! A fantastic art deco apartment, overlooking Copacabana beach with a view to die for. Lovely rooms, great breakfasts, wonderful host and team. Marta is so helpful and friendly, we felt very much at...

As a solo traveller, I stayed at Marta's guesthouse based on other Trip Advisor comments and I was not disappointed. My room (Topaz room) was very comfortable and nicely furnished (as shown in the photos). Everything was spotlessly clean and immaculate. I found Marta to be friendly and welcoming and she provided any assistance or advice that I required. The... More

Marta is a great host, you feel like part of the family right from the start. Rooms are very comfortable, very clean, you'll be steps away from Copacabana and Ipanema Beaches, can't beat the location, very safe neighborhood too. But the view, oh the view, you can't miss it! Million dollar view for sure! We enjoyed spending hours on the... More
