    Best view during my many stays in Rio! Right across from the beautiful Pao de Acucar/Sugarloaf and the beach with all it's running trails and workout stops. Super close to the metro and other public transit as well as some of the best malls in Rio, which have most things you could need. Petra was super accommodating and provides plenty of tips and info if you need it. Will be attempting to book here again on subsequent trips!

    It's a nice clean apartment with everything you need for a short stay. Petra is a great host, efficient, flexible and on time all the time. She also gave me lots of ideas and things to do whilst staying in the neighbourhood, which is a decent one.

    Petra is a wonderful host and this apartment is a model of efficiency, aesthetics and location. "European style": modern, small with everything in its place and a place for everything. Terrific view, very near a cinema showing Brazilian films, short walk to metro.

    Petra's place was amazing and looks exactly like the photographs. I come to Rio about twice a year for long stays, and am already hoping to stay here next time I'm back. Whether you're going downtown or further towards zona sul (ipanema, leblon) the apartment is really well located to many transport options and in a great, safe neighborhood. The doorman are so sweet, the appliances are modern and work great, and the view is unbelievable! Highly recommend! Petra is also great, both for the seasoned Rio traveler and the uninitiated. She gave me her phone number and was really accessible if I had any questions and has a variety of guides in the apartment for guests about sightseeing, etc.

    Für unseren kurzen Aufenthalt in Rio war die Unterkunft genau das richtige. Wir wurden super nett empfangen. Das Zimmer ist klein, aber sehr gemütlich und mit allem ausgestattet was man braucht. Der Ausblick ist natürlich malerisch. Allerdings sollte man sich bewusst sein, das die Unterkunft an einer Hauptstraße liegt und es daher etwas lauter sein kann. In der nahen Umgebung gibt es Supermärkte, Restaurants, Bars. Alles laufnah erreichbar. Wir haben uns immer sicher gefühlt. Rio ist sehr weitläufig aber Botafogo ein prima Ausgangspunkt. Vielen Dank an Tessa (sie war super schnell per whatsapp erreichbar). Grüße Lisa und Julian

    “Excellent accueil de Petra. Sympathique , chaleureuse et de bons conseil. Petit studio conforme à la description et bien placé pour visiter Rio avec le métro à 5-6 minutes à pied. Le quartier est sûr et l'immeuble est sécurisé mais un peu défraîchi. Seul bémol la route devant le pain de sucre est un peu bruyante mais c'est le prix à payer pour avoir cette vue exceptionnelle. ”

    Petra and her assistant, Tessa, were extremely professional, prompt, helpful. The apartment and its location were excellent. I hope to stay here or in another of Petra's apartments on my next visit.

    The apartment was perfect! Just like the view! The pictures online are true to their word and location was great. All contact made with the hosts was prompt & efficient, also helped that they spoke perfect English and were super friendly! Critical information about the surroundings and Rio in General was provided by the hosts and was super helpful. Two thumbs up!

    Petra and her team were wonderful. They were very helpful and accommodating. The apartment was clean, lovely, safe and has an exceptional view of the Sugar Loaf mountain. The pictures she has online are true to the look and feel. I would highly recommend staying at any place Petra has listed.

    My friend and I stayed at the lovely Botafogo flat during Carnival. The place is clean and very well connected to the rest of the city (... even walking distance to Copacabana, recommended for the not lazy ones!). The view from the flat is great! Supermarkets and drugstore are all nearby. Petra and Ragna are really helpful and feedback to questions is pretty much immediate.
    We really recommend this place!

    My husband and I stayed in this apartment for 10 days over Christmas and New Years. The apartment is wonderfully located - just a short bus ride to nice beaches in Botafogo, the metro is very close by for getting elsewhere, and the mall which is steps away is a convenient place for meals (visit floors 7 and 8 for restaurant choices).
    The apartment is safe and clean. We loved the neighborhood of Botafogo and had everything we needed within a few minutes of walking.
    Additionally, Tessa was a wonderful host and line of contact for anything we needed.
    A few notes for future travelers:
    If grocery shopping, I recommend you walk a bit further to go to the Zona Sul store, rather than the Mundial store.
    Even if the mall is closed, most restaurants on the 7th and 8th floors will be open.
    The metro is very close by and in my opinion is a much more enjoyable method of travel than the buses in Rio.
    I highly recommend this apartment in Botafogo for your stay in Rio.

    Perfect location, with perfect view and a stunning apartment that fully suits couples or businessmen. Everything is brand-new. Plus, the internet is even rather fast which is tricky to find in Brazil. The landlord, Petra, welcomed us very nicely and provided us swiftly with some local insights. If you seek a good vacation for a good price and good comfort...come here! And for those who are still afraid of Rio is safe here! Seriously, no need to worry at all.

    Excelente apartamento, bem localizado em Botafogo, renovado e muito bem cuidado. O predio deixa a desejar, por ser um edificio popular. Mas esse apartamento foi muito bem renovado, com bom gosto. Recomendo para uma pessoa ou um casal que queiram ter uma estadia confortavel e aproveitar uma das vistas mais bonitas do Rio de Janeiro.

    I've been very preoccupied as to how to review this apartment. I can't really explicitly explain how fabulous this place is...
    I'll start with the location: right in the middle of the centre of Rio de Janeiro.
    Botafogo is in between pretty much anywhere you want to visit: you are DIRECTLY in front of Pão de Açucar and Morro de Urca, as well as the Botofogo waterfront, which basically makes for a view which is incomparable to any you want to see in this city. The pictures do not lie. I found myself just staying home and looking at the incredible views straight ahead of me.
    If you want a beach, Praia Vermelha was my "secret beach" during my stay: NOBODY was there and it was such a peaceful place at the base of a nature reserve. It was 8 blocks away. Just be careful, it has a very violent undertow.
    The apartment is located 4 blocks from the Rio Metrô, which places you basically within reach of anything in the city. Bus stops are located directly in front of this apartment, and though more advanced to catch, there is instruction in the welcome packet inside the apartment.
    The owner, Petra, is delightful, and such a down-to-earth hostess. She explains that the apartment itself is a project that is close to her heart and that she has put some serious thought into this property. This is apparent in that EVERYTHING is well set up, with particular attention paid to the bathroom.
    Secondly, I should address the apartment itself. This place is designed in a way that the hostess thought she might live here, herself. It is minimalist and clean, with thoughtful touches such as filtered water and a Sony iPhone 4/4S speaker with charger system. There are also blackout/sound-abating curtains, which make for a restful stay in such a central locale.
    I don't mind saying that it was the finest designed and maintained property I've ever stayed at, including "premium" properties in the Maldives and All-Inclusive five-star properties in Mexico and the Dominican Republic.
    Will most certainly be back here. Petra was impressive, and the property was even more so...
    Book with confidence!

    I rented this suite for 7 weeks while looking for a more permanent apartment in Rio de Janeiro. My decision was based on location (two & half blocks from my new job) and on the pictures. With respect to the latter, I thought, "ok, maybe it is not going to be exactly like that, but it is very unlikely that such wonderful pictures can be produced in an ugly place". The reasoning was right, but was unnecessary: the suite is EXACTLY as shown in the pictures.
    Another major advantage of renting this apartment is management. Petra and her team are very friendly and super professional. She welcomes you, shows you the apartment and you can call her if you have any problem. She even let's you know if she is not going to be around at some point (of course, there is always someone available in case the need arises).
    The apartment in itself is great. The view is simply awesome. Decoration is minimalistic, beautiful and hyper functional. The apartment is small, of course, but no inch is wasted and feels very comfortable overall. The double glass window is a big plus (Praia de Botafogo can be noisy at times, but you hardly hear any external noise inside the apartment).
    Location was perfect for me since I am working nearby, but it is very good more generally. It is close to the subway, so it is really easy to go to other parts of the city. The building is older and not as nice as the apartment, but it was fine for me.
    Overall, I was really happy with the place. So much that when I realized that my search for a long term apartment was going a little slow, I decided to rent the apartment for another month! I am sure I will not regret it
