(URL HIDDEN) * THE SPACE *
Our apartment feels like home: it is spacious, cosy and very comfortable ( 65 m2 - 2 BR).
It is not sophisticated, but it is definitely comfy - VERY clean and VERY well-kept - recently painted and furnished and with floors done.
It is a TWO BEDROOM apartment with an excellent double bed (REAL ONE) in one room and a comfortable DOUBLE SOFA BED (brand new!!! - arriving Oct 30) + an armchair which turns into a single bed.
Our place is very well-lighted and ventilated, too, as it is near two beaches.
It is also very convenient: near lots of supermarkets, drugstores, restaurants, bars, shopping malls - you name it!
The building is located on one of Flamengo's
main streets, and it is very close to the beach
- which is, unfortunately, not proper for bathing, but great for strolling,running and exercising.
The apartment is very silent - as it is is in the back and not facing the street.
Therefore, NO street noise or parties on weekends - it is an older building without a party common space.
Our place is perfect for a couple who seeks privacy,a family or friends who want a comfortable and convenient place(URL HIDDEN) :) BE VERY WELCOME!!!!! :)
PS: Great location - you will be close to Copacabana and Ipanema and also Lapa and downtown Rio ! ( please check the website bnb:https://www.airbnb.com.br/locations/rio - of - janeiro/flameng(URL HIDDEN) * * THE NEIGHBORHOOD **
Flamengo does have a lot of local commerce - such as places to buy fruit, snack bars where you can have wonderful fresh fruit juice ( don't miss drinking fruit juices in Rio - because they are really DELICIOUS, fresh, varied and incredibly cheap!:)), hair salons ( with great and affordable manicure service!), flip-flops and clothing stores + street vendors (fruit, coconut water, used books and even beach kangas ,bikinis and clothes!)
There also the park - Aterro do Flamengo, a fantastic and very green open leisure open área.
Flamengo is, indeed, one of the best nighborhoods in Rio: it is very very safe, calm, family friendly, and literally in the heart of the city - close to the downton area, Lapa -
with great night life & music scene, bars and
restaurants for all tastes and 'tribes' (it is the place where all the action is in Rio), and also Copacabana,Ipanema and Leblon - plenty of buses and also metro acess.
The location is perfect, as you'll be near the aforementioned places PLUS Maracanã (metro/bus) and other areas in Rio, including Niterói - direct bus opposite the building, the
bohemian flair of Santa Tereza, as well as Rio´s most traditional sightseeings (the Christ and the Sugar Loaf are pretty close too). From
Flamengo, you can go to all of those places by using local transport. :)

You arrive in 30 minutes (by bus! ) to Rio's Twin City - Niterói (where there is the MAC - Museum of Contemporary Art and fine restaurants , plus the most spectacular view of Rio!).
The neighborhood is rich in history and there are cultural and historical places such as Casa de Cultura Julieta de Serpa and the Centennial Café Lamas (a most tradicional restautant in Rio. and attractions such as the Flamengo Park (Aterro do Flamengo) , along Flamengo beach (not proper for bathing) - 5 minutes away. Flamengo Park is the largerst park in Rio and it has coconut palms, lots of green grass, sweeping views of the bay and of the Sugarloaf. There you can hike, bike, skates , skateboard, or simply relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery .
It also has basketball courts, long walking paths for running and biking (you can rent bikes there). Walking the full length of the park you can go to the national airport and from a hundred or so meters from you watch planes take off over the bay and fly towards the Sugarloaf Mountain.
The neighborhood is very centrally located with respect to the beaches and the center of the city - where many Carnaval blocos take place. It is also much closer to Sambódromo (the place where samba schools parade) than Copacabana, Ipanema or Leblon. It is very near Lapa - the city's most traditional neighborhood for music, culture, dancing, etc, which also has many popular blocos, or Carnaval street parties.
