I'm renting a full-furnished studio in the city center, where you can find everything (Banks, markets, pharmacies, doctors, pasteries, travel and exchange agencies and all kind of shops: clothes, shoes, etc). It is situated in Cinelândia (in the heart of the historical center), 1 minute walking from the Underground Station (so 10 minutes to Copacabana and Ipanema),3 minutes walking from Lapa (a bohemian and nightlife area) and 10 minutes from Santa Teresa (an artistic and cultural area).
About the apartment itself, everything is brand new inside, including the home appliances and furniture.
There is a double bed (up in a mezzanine) and a big couch with two comfortable single beds (down).The kitchen is also full furnished and it has a refrigerator, a cooker, a microwave and the basic stuff (pans, cutlery, plates, cups, glasses, etc) to cook a good meal.
There is also cable TV with 90 channels and wi-fi Internet.
And of course most important thing in Rio de Janeiro, a good new fresh air-conditioner! Available for maximum 4 people.24 hours security.
