The apartment is absolutely beautiful! So modern and clean. The view is amazing and location is right in the middle of Copacobana and Ipanema. Close to everything you need! Lila has amazing communication and went over an above to ensure my trip was perfect. I felt very well looked after the entire time, no question is ever a hassle. Will definitely be staying again in the near future.

Where to begin ? This was my first visit to Rio and so much of my overwhelming positive experience was due to staying in this apartment for the 5 days that I was there. Yes, it's located at the entrance to the Cantagalo Favela and I simply wouldn't have it any other way. Not once did I feel unsafe, in fact, the people were extremely friendly and helpful if I ever needed anything. I was greeted every morning with a bunch of "Bom Dia's" and I just loved it. The walk down the bottom of the hill is a cultural experience like no other, and very much "real" rio. The view from the room is spectacular and I will be staying at this apartment every time I return to beautiful Rio. The booking experience was very easy and Ivan was extremely prompt in replying to me and answering any questions I had (there were a lot). The experience I had started with him ..... I was greeted by a lovely lady when checking in who showed me around and we stayed in touch throughout my stay - she was incredibly kind and offered help at every angle. Not once did I have an issue with hot water (as mentioned below in other reviews). The air con was also fine. The apartment is everything you see..... and much more. A MUST stay while in rio.

Let me start by staying that in the past 2 years we have come to Rio about 6 times and have stayed here for about 7 months in various apartments/hotels from Copacabana to Ipanema. This apartment interior is one of our favorites because of the open & airy floor plan and the great views of the ocean and favela with no obstructions. We stayed here for 14 days. Below are some pros and cons for this apartment: Pros- Building feels secure. The place is remodeled and newer appliances and spacious & nice bathroom/shower. Both A/C's work great which can be challenging at apartments. The place stays very cool (prob bc of the concrete) with the A/C off which is the first for us. Normally you walk into a sauna at other places. Wifi worked great once the glitches were taken care of. The place is very comfortable and you don't feel caged up bc of its openness and panoramic views, Plenty of hanging space and cabinet space for clothes. Washer/dryer combo. Is convenient. Liquids for cleaners and food condiments were already in the apartment which was nice. Location- it isn't far from General Osório Metro (about 5 min. Walk) and to Ipanema Beach. 7 min. It's a very quiet location so you'd never hear traffic which is common in Rio. If you have a car it's great because there is a secure parking garage. The owner and property manager are very helpful when you need anything! Cons: the apartment is situated on a hill that isn't too steep but it's enough to deter you from walking out your door to go grab a snack unless you are going out for the afternoon. There is no 24 hour security. The doorman leaves at 8:00pm but we felt safe. Because it's so isolated walking back up the hill I wouldn't recommend walking up at night because it is at the entrance to the favela and some people you pass are questionable. Take an Uber just to be on the safe side! Daytime to walk up and down feels fine. If there were more people traveling on it at night then I wouldn't be as concerned. The power went out for 4 days in the afternoons for about 2-4 hours each time which was inconvenient for A/C and wifi. Bottom line is that you could find a safer feeling location without the isolated hill but the apartment won't be nearly as nice, it will feel more enclosed, it could be noisy and it will cost more $$$. Helpful tips when staying here: If the Hot water is off (sometimes the water heater turns off), slide open the shower window and open the water heater cabinet and power on. 38-40 C is good. Washer- 29 minute speed wash cycle is plenty and it's easier to hang dry the clothes since it dries so quickly. Once a month on Sunday later afternoons the chic boutique hotel (located a about 300 feet across and down the...

We spent a great time in Ivan's apartment. The apartment is decorated with care, well equipped and clean. During our stay it was extremely hot, so we really appreciated the air conditioning on the bed. The owner was solicitous and attentive to all our requirements, such us a late check-out. We have been several times in Rio and we've stayed in many apartments in Copacabana and Ipanema. This modern loft is definetely our favorite one because of his view and his location, up on a small and quiet hill between Ipanema and Copacabana.

No surprise, the apartment is exactly as described and the views are amazing. Great location in a quiet and safe neighborhood, close to everything and far from the noisy traffic of Ipanema center. Communication with both the owner and Lila, the young local woman managing the apartment, was clear and easy at any time. At our arrival, Lila was patiently waiting for us in the apartment and she gave us the keys and some helpful advices about restaurants, beaches and shopping. Just one small negative thing : the well equipped kitchen lacks of wine glasses. Otherwise I would say that the apartmet is perfect. We loved our stay in this modern and spotless loft and we definetely recommend it.
