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

We enjoyed meeting Marta, she was so kind and helpful to us. She answered all of our questions about Rio and gave us good recommendations for things when we asked. This is a guest house, so you will share breakfast with other guests. We actually had one night with the place to ourselves and it felt like we had our... More

Fabulous location with stunning views - you can skip to the beach in your bikini so as not to worry about leaving stuff on the beach. The apartment feels like a home from home with comfy rooms (mine was pretty small - but really, you're in Rio, how much time are you going to spend in your room) an amazing... More

This guesthouse is fantastic. It is in a brilliant location - right on Copacobana beach. When choosing where to stay, I would say Copacobana is the best if you like the beach so you could easily pop across the street and back. Santa Theresa is gorgeous, but it would take a lot more organisation to lounge by the beach. In... More

Just go to the top floor of the building and you will be warmly welcomed by friendly Marta in her stylish-furnished apartment. On the ground floor you can find spacious living room with dining area and main kitchen. Than on the next floor there is another social place with another dining area and a terrace with the best view on... More
