Very Quiet House in Gloria
Very Quiet House in Gloria


Our place is a very quiet apartment part of our house but completely independent. Its on a nice hill, our street is a little bit of countryside in the city! And its 10mn walk from metro Catete and Gloria ant the aterro of Flamengo! It is a hill so it is a little effort but you have moto taxi down the hill if you prefer!

It was reformed 2 years ago! Lots of colours and nice and confy furniture for the best stay in Rio!

There is one bed room ( quiet big- about 15m2) with a double bed a closet and a table, then a bathroom with a shower and a living room with a kitchen where the sofa can be transformed in a very big double bed! the kitchen will be fully equiped!
Moreover you have a nice exterior area when you can rest in a hamac!

You have all the shops you want 10mn walk from the apartment close to the metros- restaurants, pharmacies, etc.
What makes our place unique is the silence! you can listen to the birds singing in the morning! and its very central : 15mn walking you are in Lapa or the center, 10mn you are in the aterro do flamengo, 30 walking+metro or bus) your are in Copacabana or Ipanema!
We are sure you will enjoy! any question just write us!

We had a great stay here. Rodrigo was very helpful with everything and we only wish we could have stayed longer! The unit is spacious and clean, and the location on the hill is a very cute neighborhood street. Distance to the metro and other neighborhoods was convenient enough as well.

Our hosts were wonderful! They live above the apartment, so they were available to give advice, but we still had a lot of privacy. I would recommend taking a cab up the hill if you have luggage, because it's very steep. However, this meant that we had a wonderful view and a quiet place to relax away from the party.

The house was fantastic. It's in a great area, close to the Metro and in a cool neighborhood with some history (the old executive palace is a few blocks away). The street is quiet, with a great neighborhood feel. Grocery stores, etc. are nearby. The view of the city, including Cristo Redentor, is superb. The house itself is old and has some character, with wooden ceilings and bright walls. It was very clean. Pauline and Rodrigo were great hosts, and they gave us plenty of suggestions (one of Rodrigo's best suggestions was to go to the roda de choro in Praça São Salvador at lunchtime on Sunday. Highly recommended). All in all, I got a feel of not only Rio's tourist side but also what it would feel like to live as a Carioca.

What a wonderful place to stay! Pauline and Rodrigo (and their little girl!!!) were so friendly and sweet. Quick response rate, helped show us around, helped with laundry, and provided a beautiful/stylish place to stay. The walk up to the house was a bit of a hike, but it was a beautiful and peaceful location. They had all the accommodations for cooking at the house, which was very helpful. Really enjoyed our time. Thanks, guys!

The location is good but it secluded you from night life and what Rio has to offer. It's located up a large hill so we had to take a cab most of the time if we had a lot to carry. The mold is really strong in the unit and the shower has black mold. We left after three nights because of the heavy mold, it became hard to breath. The unit is self contained and has a good kitchen area. But it's is nice and quiet and has a nice view. Rodrigo is very helpful and nice.

Hey Donna, we are sorry about the mold but it is the first time someone tells us about that! About the shower, it's true but we wash it a lot! we live in a house in a tropical country! sometimes it is difficult to resolve the mold but we are going to do our best! About the hill, there is a short cut! but yes it is on a hill! the price for being in a very quiet area! but it is not so high! and I don't agree with you that it secluded you from night life and what Rio has to offer: we are 15mn walking from Lapa, 15/20 mn by bus/taxi from the sugar loaf, same from the Christ, 20mn from santa teresa, 30mn from Copacabana and 30-40 mn from Ipanema!

Pauline and Rodrigo were very kind and generous hosts. They provided an amazing hand-picked list of recommendations to satisfy any craving whether it was a hiking adventure, a hunt for the best picanha or the best samba club or vegetarian restaurant in the city. Not only that, they were quick to respond to any question my friend and I had during our stay. Pauline told us all about her travels and adventures which really was a great way to learn about the city from the perspective of a local. As for the house, Pauline and Rodrigo have a beautiful home with spectacular views of the city and hills. The location is central and easy to get to Centro, nightlife in Lapa or beach in Botafogo or Copacabana and Ipanema. Overall had a great experience and would highly recommend to anyone staying in Rio! One note: the house is set up on a hill which gives spectacular views of the city, but really is a workout if you're carrying more than a backpack or two.

I had a wonderful stay here, the apartment is very nice, comfortable, and private. The area is great for exploring all over Rio and is safe. Pauline and Rodrigo were amazing hosts, I recommend highly.
