Fernando was an incredible host and this stay was among my best AirBnB experiences to date. First, Fernando was very forgiving and accommodative when I missed my flight to Rio, staying up later than he needed to welcome me to his home. Fernando was also a great guide to the city, having lived there most of his life; I much appreciated the restaurant suggestions. Staying at Fernando's was just like staying with family - he was full of joy to meet someone new and made sure I didn't leave his home on an empty stomach. The room itself was nice and clean and the neighborhood is my favorite in Rio - safe and upscale with lots of things to do (beach only one block away). Definitely take advantage of Fernando's rooftop which has gorgeous views, a tub and a sauna. I cannot recommend Fernando and his place more highly and reiterate this was among my best AirBnB experiences to date.
