Flora and Andre were fantastic hosts and their apartment is ideal. I'd have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending this to anyone who would like to stay in Rio. I am extremely grateful for their excellent communication and really going the extra step to make our stay as good as it could be.

Flora made us feel very welcome, leaving subway passes for us and some food and drink in the fridge. The apartment was a nice, clean apartment in a decent apartment block. The apartment was very well located. Walking out of the apartment there is a good view of Cristo Redentor, walk to the end of the road and there is a great view of Sugar loaf mountain. It is very close to Botafogo subway station and the surrounding area felt very safe and nice. I would definitely recommend this to anyone and would stay there again if I came back to Rio.

Flora was a fantastic host, communicated often prior to our arrival, helped us with directions and suggestions of restaurants and sites to see. Her home is in a nice and safe part of Botafogo with at least a dozen restaurants within 5 minutes walk. A great market right next door to her condo building with fantastic selection of beer, wine, deli items and fresh fruit and veggies. Her condo is clean and efficient. Although we didn't cook much, she has an wide array of kitchen appliances and utensils. Nice to have a washer in the condo and there are 3 tv's. Although the weather was very pleasant during our stay, the master bedroom has A/C. There is 24 hour manned security at the front reception. Flora even offered to have her cleaning lady come in during our stay.

This is a perfect airbnb to experience Rio in. Located in Botafogo, which is a great (and pretty safe) neighborhood that is not very touristy, yet close to all the touristic spots. It's' by a metro (which could be faster to get to ipanema during rush hour FYI), a nice street Nelson Manela, with restaurants and bars, which makes it very livable. Pictures are accurate and the place is well kept. Hosts are communicative, pleasant, and easy to deal with. The only thing to keep in mind is that the couch is not suitable for sleeping. It is quite small and uncomfortable to sleep on (but fine for sitting). Thanks Flora for the great experience. I will definitely stay again.

Flora's place was great ! I definitely recommend it to anyone who would wish to stay in Botafogo's area. It is very very well located. Inside, there is a good energy and we felt immediately at home. Added to that, Flora is extremely nice and responsive. She gives a lot of advices on the places around. I will recommend her place to my friends. I recommend it as well to you !

Flora's apartment is immaculate, fresh bedding and fluffy towels. The view from your pillow will blow you away! The kitchen is well stocked and we could manage our laundry easily too. I enjoyed both the friendly communication throughout but Flora's compassion and business like help through our hospital adventure was such a bonus in a foreign country & dealing with bureaucracy. Botafogo is a great base to work from we enjoyed dawn breaking over Sugarloaf, the cheapest Acia Bar in Brazil and even the pleasant hour's walk to the botanic garden. Felt safe at all times and the metro is only 2 minutes from the apartment. The local bars and restaurants are extra friendly and nobody is looking to exploit you. I will definitely contact Flora the next time I visit!
