Luiz is a very friendly, helpful guy. He let me check in a little early since I had an early flight in, and check out late afternoon since I had an evening flight out and the apartment wasn't rented that day. He also promptly fixed the shower when there was no hot water and when the toilet wouldn't stop flushing. The apartment is well located in Centro, just 400 meters from the Cinelandia Metro station and the Municipal Theater, and lots of nearby restaurants, although most of them are closed on the weekends. The apartment is fairly small but comfortable enough for one or two people; the bed is very comfortable, and the small refrigerator is adequate. The kitchen is very small but sufficient to heat up something on the stove or in the microwave. The bathroom is fine, with a good shower, and some racks to dry any washing you may have done. There are three issues with the apartment, which could range from just irritating to a serious negative, depending on how important they are to a prospective renter: 1) The apartment is on, and the window faces, Rua Evaristo da Veiga, a very busy, noisy street, with lots of bus and car traffic. Even though the apartment is on the 18th floor, you can hear some noise, even with the window shutter closed, at all hours, although the air conditioner drowns out most of it when it is on; 2) The TV is old and there are no international channels, only local Brazilian channels, half of which cannot be seen because of bad reception and none of which are of any interest to a non-Brazilian, so you will not be watching much TV if you are a foreigner; 3) Given the TV situation, good Wi-Fi is even more important; however, the W-Fi in the apartment, while good when it is working, shuts down and restores itself at random, which was frustrating, and sometimes the router had to be manually turned off and back on again when the Wi-Fi didn't restore itself. Luiz is aware of the problem but apparently nothing can be done about it. Given the location, the apartment features, and the price, I would definitely stay here again and can recommend staying here if the issues described above are not important to a potential renter.

My first stay with air bnb and a good one indeed. The apartment is located a 2 min walk from the famous Lapa Bridge and there was alot going on around this area which I enjoyed. Police station across the road so your quiet safe. The apartment itself is nice and clean and of course spacious. The air con works wonders and the bathroom and shower is a good size. You can see a bit of the ocean from the window. Yes I would stay here again and Luiz was available to contact if I had any questions. Thank you Luiz for having me.

The apartment is really neat, and was spotless when we arrived. Luiz even arranged so that we could check-in a couple of hours before the initially arranged time, which was really nice from him. There are many possibilities to eat around the place, albeit most of them only open during weekdays. The apartment is really close to the Santos Dumont airport, only a ~R$12 taxi ride away (approximately US$3 as of today's conversion rate), so really convenient. I do, however, recommend being careful in the neighborhood, and spartan in what you bring with you, to avoid mishaps. All in all, it was an excellent stay, and whenever I had a question about the best way to do something, Luiz would promptly respond via (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN).

The apartment was exactly as pictured and described. Luiz, our host, was very responsive and accommodating. For those who are not familiar with Rio they may find the surrounding area to be intimidating as its the downtown core, but there really is nothing to fear. One block away is the state assembly, municipal theatre, national library, and many dazzling examples of architecture for which Rio was once famously called "Paris of South America". There are several nice restaurants where you can enjoy a wonderful evening sipping cold beer and people watching. For me the most convenient aspect of this apartment was its proximity to the US Consulate...the reason for my visit. If you have anything to do in the downtown area this apartment is well located and convenient...including a short taxi ride from the local municipal airport - Santos Dumont. Also just one block away is the metro station where you can easily go to the famous beaches of Rio/Copacabana/Ipanema for only R$3.5 per person. The apartment was completely renovated and in excellent condition...something you do not find very often in Brasil. The bed was comfortable and stocked with extra blankets & pillows. Because we were traveling in winter we didn't need to use the a/c...being on the 18th floor we were up high enough to get a nice refreshing breeze.

Luiz's apartment has THE perfect location for discovering the city and I'd recommend it whoeheartedly to individuals as well as couples. In its vicinity you will find good places to eat as well as ATMs, public transport and others. I have not met Luiz in person due to rather busy schedule but he made sure that everything was ready for my arrival and was also available during my stay.
