Great apartment and personnel
The appartment is very comfortable in every way. The facilities itselves are great, good pillows, great size for an apartment, bath tub instead of a shower, full equipped kitchen, etc. but the main positive thing is its localization, it couldn’t be more centric! As a last comment, I would say that the agency personnel was really kind and are using a useful key system which works only with codes, really easy!

Nice clean apartment
Nice apartment, well equipped. A little surprised to see druggies in the little square opposite the apartment, but was told they had cctv watching the entrances. At no point were we approached or harassed by them. We kept the blinds shut most of the time in the bedroom. Very close to Sao Bento station, and easily walkable to the bridges and the river, hilly of course!
