We had a really lovely time at Fatima's house, which is wonderfully situated near the beach and some great restaurants. Fatima was kind and friendly, and gave excellent recommendations. The house was also very clean, and beautifully decorated, we felt like we were at home.

Fatima's place was perfect. Great location, a few blocks from Leblon beach. Gorgeous home, fabulous faciilities and very comfortable bed. Felt a lot more like staying in a home than a hostel. She was very welcoming!

A very nice alternative to hostels or hotels. The room was immaculate with every facility imaginable and the shared bathroom was usually available. Fatima was very friendly and helpful, particularly if you are planning on using buses to get around in Rio.

This is a very small apartment, our room was so small that we were constantly tripping over our bags. Fatima was lovely and helpful, but unfortunately the accommodation was just too small for us. Also, breakfast, which was detailed as included online, and highly reviewed by past customers, is no longer supplied. A fact that we did not discover until the first morning when we ventured out of our room, only to find that we had to go to the supermarket if we wanted anything to eat.

It's a really nice environment. Leblon is a really nice place to stay, Fatima's place is organized, and the shower is amazing, the room even better. It's big , nice, cozy, perfect. Fatima is willing to help you, I've only stayed one night to go to a weeding party, but in few moments we've stay she helped with everything since tips to nails shops and even hair products. We've loved the place and for sure we would come back.

Fatima (and her team) went to great lengths to make our 4 nights stay very personable and greatest possible fun. They made us feel like we are staying at our long time friend's place. The location is amazing during day and night. If you don't mind getting greeted by an adorable dog and a cute cat every time you come "home", this is the place to stay in Rio.

Stayed there with my parents, husband and a brother in 2 rooms. Very relaxed and charming atmosphere. Felt like at home. Great breakfast, few blocks to a supermarket and Leblon beach. You just need a little bit more time to get to downtown or copacabana. I can definitely recommend to stay at Fatimas House.

Great place to stay. Location a few blocks from Leblon Beach, the best beach in Rio. Extremely clean. Fatima is very nice and accommodating. Will stay there again on my next trip to Rio.

This was a lovely place we moved into after a few days staying in a hostel. The room was a nice double with very comfortable bed. The Kitchen was nice and there was a nice sitting area although we never used it. Fatima is very helpful and helped us with bus times and information. She does have a cat and dog so if you are not animal lovers you may want to think twice. Would recommend!

Fatima is a lovely host in a beautiful home in the safe, upmarket area of Leblon. The beaches are a 5 min walk away, Ipanema is close by, lots of cafes and restaurants everywhere. Fantastic breakfasts and great location, fast wifi. Everything is great, highly recommended!

From the moment you walk into Fatima's living room you feel you are in for a very cosy and friendly stay: you are first greeted by her cat and dog and then by Fatima herself. We arrived early and were immediately offered breakfast and a place to freshen up before our room would be ready. Our room was great, spacious with a comfy bed, a place to brush your teeth and airconditioning for warm Rio nights. The location in Leblon is perfect for a day at the beach in Leblon or Ipanema and a visit to the Botanic g

Fatima is a great host. She knows whats around in town and gives lots of insider tips. She also takes care of her guests. The location of her appartment in Leblon is perfect too. Right next to the streets where all the shops, restaurants bars and clubs are, and not far from the beach either. Only one thing you need to know: if you+re allergic to cats or dogs this wont be your spot.
