Overall, this is a great place to stay if you want to be in Rio’s best neighbourhood without paying the overpriced rates that hotels in the area charge. As others have pointed out, you are basically staying in someone’s home, but the hosts are very accommodating and go out of their way to make your stay as pleasant as possible. For example, I asked the owner Stella for directions to the closest Internet cafe and she immediately passed me her laptop (which she was actually using at the time). The next day, I found a desktop computer with Internet access all set up in my bedroom (the owners actually took it out of their own room and left it in mine for the rest of the stay). They also have wi-fi, however, for those who bring their own computers. I also asked about the nearest laundromat and was told not to worry and just to leave my laundry and it would be taken care of. These things went above and beyond what I would expect...it was clear that they really cared about making sure their guests were comfortable and happy. Stella was also very helpful with advice about what to see and how to get there, restaurants, etc.
The bedroom is clean, towels are changed daily and bed linens are changed a couple of times a week. The breakfast is great with freshly squeezed fruit juice, fruit, coffee, ham, cheese, breads and cakes every day.
As others have said, the location is excellent. The apartment is a two minute walk from the beach. You can walk anywhere in Leblon and Ipanema and there are also buses just outside the building that will take you farther afield. The area is also one of the few in Rio that is safe to walk around in at night, which is important since we didn’t want to be stuck indoors as soon as it got dark. Hotels in Leblon/Ipanema cost about twice as much, so this place is excellent value for what you get.
