This apartment unites everything a tourist is looking for. Its price, coziness, safety and location will provide you a great experience in the wonderful city of Rio de Janeiro.

The space

This newly refurbished place has a bedroom with a double bed (good closet and air conditioner), an extremely comfortable sofa bed in the living room, a big bathroom with a great hot and high-pressure shower (really important!!!), a fully equipped bar-kitchen, cable TV, Wi-Fi Internet and laundry facilities. The building counts on doorman 24/7 and we also provide towels and bedclothes to our guests.

Although it’s located in a lively street, the apartment is positioned on the back side of the building, ensuring silence all day long and a bucolic view of the Church of Nossa Senhora da Glória do Outeiro (Our Lady of the Glory of Knoll), which is one of the greatest assets of the Brazilian religious colonial architecture from the 18th Century. You will feel like a real carioca in the ancient Rio!

In a tourist point of view, the apartment is located in a central and strategic neighborhood of Rio, called Glória. It is the first neighborhood from the South Zone (the most valorized zone in Rio) and it’s known as a historical place of the city.

Only 100 meters away from a metro station, our guests can access basically the entire town extremely easily. By metro, Copacabana is only 10 minutes away and Ipanema only 15 minutes. Cinelandia, a centre of museums, cinemas and the impressive Municipal Theatre is only 3 minutes away. By bus, Lapa (the most bohemian place in Rio) is 5 minutes away. Also by cab, our guests can go to Santa Tereza, Sugar Loaf, Redemption Christ or Sambodromo (the place where the samba schools parade) within less than 15 minutes or R$ 25,00. Also, by walking 10 minutes our guests can reach the beautiful Flamengo Park, a lovely area that hosts the Museum of Modern Arts of Rio de Janeiro and amazing gardens along the coast.

Every Saturday morning there is a lovely food street fair 2 minutes away from the apartment. There, our guests can taste the best of Brazilian fruits and foods. Be aware that once a month there is a live free samba concert on the fair as well!

The location allows our guests to do a lot of things walking, as eating in good restaurants, go to banks, pharmacies, supermarkets, juice stores, cafeterias and bakeries. Right in front of the building there is a traditional bakery in Rio that is open 24h.

Nice apartment, very well located if you want to know the real Rio. Very close to the metro station and with a 24 hours "padaria" just across the street. It seems bigger in the pictures, though. Bed and cushions could be better too.

The flat was in Gloria, which is an excellent location, close to Lapa and Santa Teresa, but also only 3 stops to Copacabana. There was an excellent 24 bakery opposite where we got food from every day. The flat is small but perfectly formed. It has a beautiful view out the back of the cathedral and also old colonial buildings We were met by Ruda, who was really friendly and helpful. It was a perfect location for the Olympics – easy to get the Central and Deodora and not too long to get the Olympic Park. There was good wifi and TV to watch the Olympics when we got home in the evening. I would recommend this flat to anyone.

Perfect apartment, centrally located. The place has everything you need and is in a very central neighborhood, close to Gloria metro station. We didnt meet Diogo in person, but his incredibly friendly friend Ana received us and showed us the place.

Diogo's apartment is good! The position in the town is perfect, it is possible to go to the center just walking or visiting the rest of the town taking the metro (5 min. walking)! Diogo was not there when we arrived but the porter gave us the keys so me and Stefano were free to go in the apartment with any problem. The flat is in good conditions but a lot of small insects were everywhere in the kitchen so it is not possible to leave any food in the place.. From the window it is possible to see the church of Nossa Senora and during the carnaval hearing music from the streets just opening the windows! U won't need your phones or computers for that! :) Ahah! Tkss Diogo&Rudà!

Diogo's Gloria apartment exceeds the great photos he's provided. Very comfortable bed, excellent kitchen and bath, lots of closet space so you can unpack and feel at home. I was especially happy to have a washing machine in the apartment to launder my clothing as time passed. Diogo was terrific himself: I was running a little late on arriving at the apartment the first day, and he assured me it was no problem (I did call enroute to explain short delay). Once I arrived, he was thorough in explaining details like the wifi (works great) and neighborhood attractions. He took care to provide contact info for in case of any problems (I had none during my stay). The apartment is very close to many restaurants and shops, as well as barely a block to the Gloria Metro (subway) station, and an easy walk to Lapa, Cinelandia, Flamengo Beach and even for the ambitious, downtown and its attractions. Diogo even supplied plenty of fresh fruit and coffee ( do need my caffeine in the morning). This apartment was a great space to call home while in Rio, located ideally for ease of reaching the usual tourist spots in Ipanema and Copacabana, as well as exploring the inner neighborhoods and beyond.

This is an ideal apartment for people looking to move around Rio de Janeiro easily --- it's very centrally located, not in a touristy-area, steps from a Metro station and not far from the pedestrian haven that is Flamengo. The building is modest but the apartment itself is lovely --- light-filled, very well maintained, with a view of an old church. Charming and comfortable. Diogo responds quickly and is very friendly and welcoming --- he takes care to make sure the place has everything you need (including basics like toothpaste, olive oil, etc.) and has plenty of recommendations. I would definitely stay here again. Obrigada!

I'm born and raised in Rio de Janeiro. Although I'm really proud about my place, I've lived and traveled abroad for a long time. From the North to the South, I visited many places in the world and it allows me to fully understand what a guest really wants when he arrives at certain place.
