Perfect location, three blocks to beautiful Ipanema Beach (Posto 8) and one block to the main shopping street and lots of restaurants. Safe building, there is a 24 hours doorman. Nice, bright, quiet apartment. Wifi works well. Cristina was granting me an early check-in and a late check out (thank you for that!). Bathroom is a little odd and not for big people: The toilet is in a tiny corner, you can hardly move. Same for the glass shower … it has one of those rainfall shower heads on the ceiling, but it is so tiny, you can hardly turn around. Kitchen could be better equipped (few pots and pans, no cleaning sponge, no paper towels), but for a short stay it is sufficient. A few hick-ups upon check in: Cristina is charging extra money for electricity if you exceed more than 7 kW a night. This made me feel a little uncomfortable at first as AirBnB usually is all inclusive. I didn’t exceed the kW given to me, but I hardly ever used the AC (very noisy), so I do not know if other guest have had to pay. Further, Cristina is asking you to sign an extra contract upon check-in, that basically lists the price of EVERY item in the apartment, including cutlery, plates, lines, etc. She seems to be concerned that tenants trash the place, so she is giving you all these dos and don´ts. There is even a note in the bathroom stating if you stain the towels or linens with make-up, blood, sunscreen, etc you might get charged. Things like these do not make you feel very welcome and could be definitely improved. But over all, it was a very pleasant experience, if I´d ever go back to Rio I would consider staying here again.
