Great location, close to the beaches in a very safe Arpoador district - less than 5 mins to the Copacabana beach, 7-8 to the Ipanema beach. Porter and elevator in a nice building. Alex is a very pleasant person, willing to provide excellent service and patient in giving useful tips to getting around Rio.

Good apartment in a great location.. walking distance to Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. Only big negative was the lack of internet... for a $100 deposit you can get a mini-modem to use with a laptop but internet access is slow and spotty. TV doen't really get any channels but DVD player works.. bring movies if you want to use it.
Our flat on the 10th floor (back) was perfect for our tourist purposes: secure, quiet for sleeping, clean and convenient. It was small, but had everything we needed -- kitchen and roomy bath with nice shower. Alex could not have been more accommodating. One thing to remember: Ask for internet when booking: apparently there is a hot spot you can reserve but I did not know until we left and therefore had no internet.
The apartment was really good located. It's clean and with all the confort. Alex was very helpful , he gave us all the information not only on the apartment but also about the city (where to go in the night, restaurants, supermarkets ecc). We also called him to move the check-out in the afternoon and he was super friendly. I highly recommend alex Rio flat !!
