Magnus's apartment is a great place to stay. The apartment is clean, nicely furnished, bright, and spacious with beautiful hardwood floors. The windows face the nearby lush hills, including the Corcovado. The location is very convenient. It's just a few minutes by foot to the Botafogo metro stop and to many nice bars, restaurants, and shops. There were always people on the streets, so it felt safe to walk around. Still, it's very quiet. Highly recommended!

Great location - 5 min walk to metro and many restaurants. Air conditioning in all rooms, and a view from the balcony of Christ the Redeemer. Very comfortable for our family of four, with a well equipped kitchen and small clothes washer. A 24-hour doorman made our very early arrival easy. The host was accommodating with our check-in and check-out times. We had some difficulty with the door locks (in our experience, the locks were temperamental), but the host was very helpful and understanding when we had trouble. Overall, we loved the apartment and the location and working with the host - super!

Communication great. Good place, clearly designed for hosting (includes notes, maps, etc). There were a few things off, but nothing that truly affected my stay. I did let the hosts know so I am sure the issues will be resolved before the next visitor. Recommended!

Response from Magnus:
Hi Melissa, thank you so much for your feedback! We definitely don't want our guests to encounter any issues staying in our apartment, even if they're just minor things as you mentioned. We hope you'll consider staying at our place again next time, as we're sure you'd have a smoother experience ;)

It is the second time we stay in this apartment, and like the first time we loved it! Location is perfect, 5 minutes walking from metro station, the apartment is fully equiped with anything you might need during your stay and Magnus is always available to answer any questions, if I have to say something negative is only that the doorman / s are not so nice! A fact not important at all when you get to stay un such a nice place!

Dear Berenice, my daughter stayed at our apartment just after you left and she was impressed by how clean and organized it was. Thank you so much for taking care of our place as if it was yours. We hope to host you again soon!

Great apartment, just like in the photos, with all amenities you could wish, top location, I mean Corcovado just in the front of the balcony!

Thank you Magnus and Luisa for this great experience!!! I loved your apartment, it is so original and authentic, and has everything that a traveller would need (and more). Furthermore, it was spotlessly clean and tidy. A real plus: the ample size of the kitchen. Quiet location, yet still super convenient to Botafogo Metrô station. You were very responsive in our communication, which I really appreciated. You are setting new standards here. For sure I will stay at your place again next time that I am in Rio! Obrigado mais uma vez!
