Fantastic location for the blocos (street party) during Rio Carnaval if you want to feel a real part of it. Please note the blocos happen outside the apartment so you won't sleep (but presumably that is why you're going to the Carnaval!) Felt very secure and happy in the area. Restaurants and site seeing such as library, theatre very close (closed however over carnaval). Metro is a between 10-15mins walk away. Metro to Copacabana was about R$3.20 each way. There is a closer station a minute up the road, but again this is shut over Carnaval. Apartment small, but nicely kitted out, very clean and modern. Comfy bed, hammock, sofa. 1 drinking water tank is included. Antonio was very helpful. Gave us plenty of information on what to see and was only next door if we ever needed any help. Dilma was helpful prior to our stay with providing us with a range of information on the area, from where to eat and places of attraction. Overall a great place to stay for a good value. Suited our needs perfectly!
* Noise of Carnaval maybe off putting for some! -Have some earplugs! Difficult to find, but you'll find it next door to the 'ahem' adult shop!
