“good for backpackers, not for couples with luggage”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

we chose this pension for its excellent location directly at Copacabana at a cheap price, and also the excellent reviews.
However we were very disappointed with the size of the room, with two suitcases there was hardly room to walk, and we sure couldn't open both suitcases at the same time.
The bed and the bathroom were also not really big enough for 2 persons.
The spacious common sitting room and kitchen in front of our sleeping room couldn't really make up for that.
And except for a guy who opened the door (and of course hardly spoke English) there was nobody to ask for any question.
Due to the great location and the cheap price, I give it stil 3 points. But I would recoomend the place only for (single) backpackers.

Room Tip: ask for a bigger room

It's very good located, just a few meters from Copacabana beach. Good connection with the subway and bus to the sights, like the Sugar Loaf, the Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon and the Christ the Redeemer (statue). There are supermarkets and restaurants in the surroundings. The room is not so large and there's no breakfast included, but the kitchen is full furnished with fridge, microwave, stove, dishes and cutlery, that's why I bought my food and prepared my breakfast myself. Besides it has a computer with internet access. I really enjoyed my stay. I recommend Casa da Valeska!

It's located in a 6 floors building just two steps from the beach and well connected with the rest of Rio. The room is not too large but comfortable and brand new! We definetely liked it. The apartment is nice, the only spot is that breakfast is not included, but you have kitchen at your disposal. Valeska has been very kind in welcoming us and she's always at your disposal by email if you need something. If we'll come back to Rio, we'll know where to go. Carlo e Michela
