This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Just like the London B&B..value for money...Noemia is an excellent host and even brought
us to learn African Dance and to watch the Salsa class.
The place is ideal for visiting the Lapa area and the best place when one wants to visit
Rio during Mardi Gras celebration, which is only a walking distant.
Before we arrrive in Rio we were very concern about the safty of the area..but we came back
to Noemia[s house quite late at night and no one bother us at all.
Noemia bought us the fresh and hot french loaves every morning for breakfast...
When you stay here, you will experienced the typical Brazilian family way of life.
This place is a little like coming home. The host Noemia is a lovely woman with a big heart. We arrived on a Sunday which is the day Noemia cooks for her family and she invited us to eat with her which was just lovely. Noemia also runs a Samba class on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. The accommodation is basic but it is clean and safe and the breakfast is fantastic. Both her and her daughter are lovely people and the location is only 10 minutes from Lapa.
