The stately Zurich Building ( Sa Ferreira 88) is situated 1& 1/2 blocks from the Copacabana beach and a 5 minute walk to the popular beaches of Arpoador and Ipanema. The front of this building faces a tree-lined street and the back overlooks a sloped street leading to the hillside community known as the Cantagalo (rooster) favella. (and yes, you may hear a rooster crow in the morning!) The Cantagolo Metro stop which gives you access to most of Rio is only 4 blocks away. One can walk less than two blocks to 4 banks with ATM facilities, a public library, 2 supermarkets, a drugstore, 2 internet cafes, and too numerous - to - count restaurants. This 10-story, family-oriented building has excellent security with an outside fence and a doorman from 6 A. M. to 9 P. M.; afterwards, tenants use the electronic system or keys to enter. However, this is a well-lighted and active area with many people and numerous street venders selling vegetables, items, and crafts on the street. Three international hostels and 2 hotels are nearby. With such activity one can feel quite safe and without fear of walking home on a dark, deserted street.

Important. We would advise that in this area there are many parties, sing-alongs, and dance sessions especially during the times of New Years and Carnival. Therefore, there may be an inconvenient level of noise from the music and singing from the comunity, particularly on the weekends. So, we are giving advanced notice to all potential tenants of this building that this situation is naturally out of our control. This aspect is a part of the flavor of Rio! However, should there be any complaints about such on the part of a TENANT of this apartment (reference #160) we would inform them that no refund of any amount paid( either advanced payment on the reservation or full rental payment) will be considered.
Optional broadband Internet conection.
