The space looked just like photos revealed. It is a renovated apartment in an older building.
Pro: close to shopping, walking distance to Copacabana beach, walking distance to Rio Sol Mall
Cons: The apartment had roaches.
I spent over 2 weeks in the apartment. The 2nd day, I noticed a roach. I contacted the owner about the issue and he told me that be recently had the space fumigated because of a previous bug issue. The day after I talked with him, he had a company come out. The roaches were still present throughout my stay. I had to keep all my food in a small fridge because if it was out on the table, roaches would be present. If it were not for the roach issue, the unit would get 5 stars.
