About this listing

The flat is located in a very central area in Rio, close to the most nice things of this swing city. Easy to go to Ipanema Beach, to Maracana Stadium, to the Sambodromo, to Cinelandia.
The area is very calm - night and day. No problems!

The space

Clean, cozy apartment, in Estacio neighborhood, with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom with shower & toilet, 1 separate toilet, doormen, elevators, broadband Wi-Fi, good kitchen, small veranda, parking for one car, in central area of Rio de Janeiro. Apartment is on the top floor, so the view is incredible!

Very close to the metro station (2 minute walk) (Estacio stop) and buses to many sites in the city. Easy access to Ipanema, Leblon and Copacabana, by subway and buses.

Nice building with great view of a big part of Rio (near Sambodromo, City Hall, Central do Brasil (train station), and Central Bus Station (Rodoviaria). From the main bedroom you can see the statue of Christ the Redeemer.

There are 3 supermarkets nearby, restaurants and shops. Downtown Rio (Zona Sul) is just 15 minutes by bus.

Guests should expect tranquility and calmness staying here.
I am renting a room but guests can use the entire flat. I speak good English (not quite fluent, no Shakespeare!)

I use another room in the flat at times, but my primary abode is outside of Rio, and most of the time I am not in the apartment.

Unmissable opportunity for affordable accommodation throughout the World Cup. First to see will rent.

Thank you and welcome!!

Guest access

I have a farm 60 kms from Rio, at the Serra dos Orgaos, and guests can stay there for free, before or after their visit. Lets enjoy the Hill Station, 5 kms walking up. Many waterfalls and original Mata Atlantica. With splendid view!

Interaction with guests

If Im in Rio I can share breakfast and even vegetarian meals. Im free and Im always around if people needs me. But most of the time Im out.

Rolando went out of his way to make up feel welcome. Our ship came in late and we did not arrive until 12 hours later than planned. he told us how much the cab should cost, how long it would take to arrive, and gave us his phone number to have the cab driver call when we arrive so he could come down and help us with our bags. He was kind enough to fix us a wonderful breakfast each day, explained how to easily get to the areas we wanted to see, and was a delight to talk with since he has traveled to more than 100 countries, It was exactly as it was presented. What was really great was we were able to see the fireworks for the opening ceremony from the balcony. At first I was unsure about the bed because i have back trouble, but the bed was very comfortable. The shower has an electric heater. The neighborhood had all new sidewalks. It is 4 blocks to the Metro, and the bus stop is a short walk to the bottom of the hill. We would definitely stay here again.

Rolando was a great host! Very interesting guy with many stories to tell. He was also kind enough to provide us with breakfast each day. The flat is also well located to central Rio, and about 20-30mins by subway to Copacabana. We would stay here again!

Rolando the host is very welcoming. An interesting, if eccentric, guy who has travelled most parts of the globe. He makes most of his food from basic ingredients , often from his own farm. His apartment is centrally located in a quiet residential street on a hill and is convenient for the metro and bus services. There is no air conditioning but plenty of breeze as it is the penthouse.

The apartment does indeed have a great view of Rio, including of the famous Christ the Redeemer (Cristo redentor) statue that over looks the city. Rolando is a kind soul who strives to be a good host; he is also a world traveler with lots of stories to tell. I appreciated that Rolando shared a couple of vegetarian dinners he while he was at the apartment during my stay.

We had a fantastic stay with Rolando during the carnival. Rolando is an extremely nice, giving man with many interesting thoughts. Very way-out, but in a good way. Location is alright. The apartment itself was more than enough for us. Me and my friend really enjoyed our stay! Hope to see you soon my friend.
