A great spacious apartment, very close to Copacabana and 30min walk to Ipanema (which is definitely the recommended beach!) We had use of all kitchen appliances, coffee machine was available, fridge to keep your food and drinks with was shared with the other two rooms. Good wifi with signal in the room. One big minus for the flat is that there is no A/C and being in the 10th floor + the high temperatures in Rio made it really uncomfortable for us. Especially our room (the one on the left in the corridor) was like a sauna at night. In addition to this the ceiling fan was not workin and the provided desk fans just blew hot air into our faces which didn't help... Gabi was a great host and helped us a lot with map, directions and information. She was very helpful in organizing an Uber for us to the airport. On the downside her information was slightly outdated, the prices quoted were incorrect as both the Christ Redeemer tour and the taxi price were more expensive than what we were told. All in all a good stay but won't consider again in hot months until A/C is installed.

Hazem and Gabi were kind and helpful and provided us with everything we needed. The location was perfect (5mins walk to the beach) and the view from the 10th floor absolutely worth seeing. ;) Thanks again for having us in Rio. It was nice to could have met you. :)

We stayed for two weeks during the olympics. Felt absolutely welcome and had a wonderful time. The room was nice and clean. Hazem helped us with any problems or questions. Was perfect to have the opportunity to use the kitchen.

I loved every bit of this experience!!! Hazem and his girlfriend Gaby were unbelievably welcoming. They helped me with getting know the city, bus system, sight seeing places and city attractions. Gaby even took the extra step and helped me with a hair dresser appointment :) The house was very clean and presentable at all times. The famous Copacabana beach is 5-10 min walking distance from the houses location and all the restaurants and bars are along the street as well. I would definitely recommend this host to everyone who wants to have the best time in Rio!!!

Joao User ProfileJoao is a superhost.

I started my experience with Airbnb on 2013. I loved my experience being a guest on Airbnb and as I live in a very central location in the touristic area of Rio de Janeiro I decided to open my doors to receive guests.

Being a host gives me a great feeling when I feel my guests happy with their stay. I feel so happy as well when I am able to help my guests.
