Couple de 50 ans, nous avons très apprécié ce séjour pendant les JO. Chambre très propre et confortable dans une maison très calme et sûr en plein centre de Botafogo. Roberto nous préparait tous les matins un délicieux petit déj que l'on partageait parfois avec les autres hôtes . Roberto est très disponible et sympathique. Allez-y les yeux fermés.
Couple of 50 years, we very appreciated this stay during the olympics games. Very clean and comfortable bedroom in a very quiet and safe house in full center of Botafogo. Roberto prepared us every morning a delicious breakfast which we sometimes shared with the other hosts. Roberto is very available and nice. Let's go!
It was a very pleasant stay indeed!Kind hosts.Spacious rooms with facilities.

Estou plenamente satisfeito com a hospedagem. O Roberto eh super agradavel e da otimas dicas de passeios e informacoes historicas sobre a cidade. A localizacao e otima e segura, a alguns minutos a do metro, praia de botafogo e shopping. O quarto azul e muito confortavel, amplo, igual as fotos. O wifi e a tv sao otimos. O custo beneficio e muito bom comparado a media de precos na cidade. O cafe da manha era simples, como anunciado, porem saboroso e servido em horario flexivel. Minha experiencia foi otima! Devo voltar em breve, recomendo a todos.
