rua toneleros , rio de janeiro, 22030-000 Brazil (Show map)


I am a jornalist. I live in this apartment and i really enjoy having guests in the two rooms i rent. My place is very confortable, sunny and airy, 5 minutes walking from the beach, with a nice balcony where you can have meals, drinks, smoke and relax... We have WI-Fi all over the place. The kitchen is well equiped and you are welcome to use it, as well as the laundry, without any extra charge. The building has 24 hours security and is located in a peacefull area in the very heart of Copacabana. There are all kinds of facilities around, like bakery, shops, bars, restaurants, markets and public transports. Both rooms have ceiling fan and ROOM ONE has also air conditioning and cable TV. I am a very friendly person and if you wish, I will be glad to give you tips to make your experience in Rio very pleasant. Hope to see you soon... :-) Sonia PS: the living room area is restricted PS': have a look on my facebook's page: sonia's homestay. PS''': bad mood forbiden!! :-)) I am recomended on Tripadvisor

I’ve stayed in hotels and bed and breakfasts for about 45 nights around the world in the past year and this was by far the most enjoyable accommodations I’ve experienced. Sonia’s hospitality and sincere joy of entertaining made this a wonderful time for me. I can truly say I count her as a friend after my time with her. Her place is clean, a short walk from the beach and very accessible from the Metro station a couple of blocks away. It’s in a safe area where I felt comfortable walking around very late at night. Sonia’s building is very nice and has 24-hour doormen who are willing to help. I especially enjoyed her huge top floor balcony. I started my mornings and ended my nights on the balcony, eating, drinking wine and socializing with Sonia and the other guests. Sonia made me feel welcome and at home. I highly recommend Sonia’s bed and breakfast. She is an amazing hostess who sincerely cares about her guests. Thank you for a wonderful time in Rio, Sonia!!! I really, really appreciate the time I spent with you!!! Thomas Blue Charlotte, North Carolina, USA
