Lapa is a neighbourhood in the city of Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil. It is located in the centre of Rio and is famous for its historical monuments and nightlife.
Reference point for lovers of nightlife, one of the striking features of the neighborhood is the harmony that living with the most diverse urban tribes. Since the 1950s, when it began to be called the "Montmartre Carioca", Lapa attracted intellectuals, artists, politicians and especially the people of Rio, who come together to celebrate the samba, forró, MPB (musica popular brasileira), choro and more recently, electronic music and rock.
Rio de Janeiro is Brazil's primary tourist attraction and resort. It receives the most visitors per year of any city in South America with 2.82 million international tourists a year.
While the city has in past had a thriving tourism sector, the industry entered a decline in the last quarter of the 20th century. Services for tourists were lacking at the time, and visitors frequently found themselves subjected to a hostile environment: Few workers in the commercial sector could speak any language but Portuguese, beach and city pollution was deterring holidayers, and crime against tourists was increasing.
The fact that Brasília replaced Rio de Janeiro as the Brazilian capital and São Paulo as the country's commercial center has also been cited as a leading cause of the decline. Rio de Janeiro's government has since undertaken to modernize the city's economy, reduce its chronic social inequalities, and improve its commercial standing as part of an initiative for the regeneration of the tourism industry.

A very nice appartment situated close to the Metro. The appartment is clean and well functioning.
Studio apartment that could remind you more of a hotel room than an apartment. Great location, 7 minutes walk to Arcos da Lapa, 10 minutes walk to Cinelandia Metro Station. The beds could have been better and there is no pressure in the shower. In my mind it's a bit overpriced. I reckon you will get cheaper options elsewhere.
A nice, cozy and clean apartment in amazing Lapa. We had no problem whatsoever and we enjoyed a lot our stay. Thank you!
Small apartment with a doorman always present. Complete and foremost in a great area. Shops, restaurants and above all music and pleasant at the weekend. Bus to reach the rest of Rio. Great week in Rio.
Appartamento piccolo e con portiere sempre presente. Completo di tutto e soprattutto in una ottima zona. Negozi, ristoranti e soprattutto musica ed è piacevolissimo nel fine settimana. Autobus per raggiungere qualsiasi altra zona di Rio. Ottima settimana a Rio.
I had the opportunity to meet Andrea due to start and finish times I had. Anyway I found very helpful and committed.
The apartment was as stated. It was clean with clean kitchen utililes although in the closet had a bag of wet clothes. The bathroom light did not work and the toilet cistern had to operate it with the tap because it was stuck. The air conditioning is noisy and either is not easy to configure either not cooled much, but the ceiling fan is very efficient. The block has a doorman. My general opinion is good and I recommend this accommodation.
No tuve la posibilidad de conocer a Andréa debido al horario de salida y llegada que tuve. De todas formas me parecio muy servicial y comprometida.
El apartamento era tal como se indicaba. Estaba limpio con utililes de cocina limpios aunque en el armario habia una bolsa con ropa humeda. La luz del baño no funcionaba y la cisterna del wc habia que accionarla con la llave de paso porque estaba atascada. El aire acondicionado hace mucho ruido y o bien no es fácil configurarlo o bien no enfria mucho, pero el ventilador de techo es muy eficiente. El bloque tiene portero. Mi opinion general es buena y recomiendo este alojamiento.
I recommed highly this apartent to everyone!
Andrea is a very good host! My flight arrived 5am to Rio de Janeiro but no problem, she had arranged keys to the door man, so I got some sleep straight away! Same with the check out; it was no problem to stay a bit longer! :)
The studio itself is small, but very functional: you have all you need to have a comfortable stay! A wifi that works all the time, kitchenette and a huge fridge for your daily dosage of beer! ;)
It is also nicely situated in Lapa; Rua dos Invalidos isn't too busy and you have markets and bars all very close! Arcos da Lapa is some six minutes away by walking and Centro is also close! Buses to Copacabana and Ipanema are 150 metres away on Rua Riachuelo!
All together this is a very nice and preferable option to any hotel with many advantages!
I hope you enjoy your stay too!
