Ron was awesome! So helpful and nice. He really did everything he could to make sure we had a great time in Rio. I was traveling with my grandmother and he set us up with a favela tour and made sure they took extra care of her!

First time in Rio and it was a great experience thanks to Ron! The apartment is in a great location, just a couple blocks from Copacabana Beach and walking distance to Ipanema. Ron gave us excellent advice on sites to see, suggested tours (which were great, do it!). Our apartment was on the top floor of a very secure building (24 hour doorman). The only issue we had was the inconsistent amount of hot water in the shower and the smoke smell from neighbors. Other than that, it's a great value!

Hello Khai, thanks for your review. I'm happy that you liked the service. The chainsmoking neighbour who rented the other apartment left and the boiler is adjusted. The apartment will not be cleaned during your stay, only before, so nobody will enter your apartment when you stay! Happy travels!

Perfect location in between Copacabana and Ipanema which gives you plenty of options at a short distance. Apartment itself was very clean with everything you need and 24hr security. Ron is a great bloke and tells you all the things to do and great spots to go when you arrive- I loved the map with all the extra hand written info on it! You can also book tours etc through Ron very easily. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone. See you next time Ron!

Excellent location in Arpoador between Ipanema and Copacabana plus near the metro train and loadsa buses. All facilities required plus more. Ron is a friendly and informative guy. Price not especially good but is the average for Rio where accommodation prices are generally not great. All in all highly recommend if want your own apartment while in Rio.

Ron was great and sat down with us to tell us all the details of where to go and what to see in Rio. Great location and a short walk to both Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. Some street noise, but that is to be expected in a busy part of Rio. Would stay there again!

Ron gave really good information before and during the stay which helped us have a really easy time in Rio! The apartment is in a fantastic location so close to ipanema and copacobana beaches. The apartment has 24 hr security, good wifi and cable tv (in case the weather is bad!). The Accomodation was good, fairly basic, but everything we needed. Would definitely recommend staying here!

Had a fab stay at Ron's appartment.. Managed to contact Ron with no problems at the airport.. Then he was there waiting with a big smile upon arrival! Ron was more than friendly, helpful and accommodating during our stay, nothing was a problem .. He definitely goes the extra mile .. The accommodation was in a superb location, clean, secure and comfortable .. If I return to Rio, I would stay here again :) Thank you for a brilliant stay Ron!

Location between Copacabana and Ipanema is unbeatable, great host with tons of advice and is always reachable for any help you may need. Ideal for couples, small groups who want some privacy and flexibility at an affordable price.

The hostel is located in one of the best locations of Rio, just one corner to Copacabana and a 5 minute walk to Ipanema. Very beautiful and secure part of the city with everything needed close. The apartments have everything you need and Ron is a very nice host speaking several languages and giving good hints on the best attraction and restaurant spots - we really enjoyed our stay in RonRioApartments!! Obrigada!

We stayed in Ron's appartment in arpoardor for 4 days in September 2013. Ron is well organized and gave us all Information we needed about nightlife, busses, even the weather! The appartment has everything that we needed, even a sandwich-maker! Is is clean and has a security service at the door. So we felt safe. Distance to Copacabana Beach: ca 100m, Ipanema ca. 5 min Walk. Supermarket ca 2 min Walk, many Restaurants (Ron told us everything, he even gave us a map with all informations)

Very good location and highly recommend. Copacaba is just two blocks away and you have everything that you need around and very close by the door.

The apartment was perfect! It was a spacious appartment which could accomodate 2 or 3 people, with full facilities (TV, Wifi, Oven...) and perfectly located (less than 5 minutes walk to Copacabana and Ipanema beaches), in a very safe building in a safe block. The staff was really helpful and really nice. And the owner, Ron is so cool! He gave us a lot of advice and good sites to visit. And he was really accomodating about the check-in/out hours! I definitely recommend this apartment!
