Futuro em conjunto
Rioca’s Vision

As our doors open to you, you’ll receive a Brazilian warm welcome that turns strangers to friends. Everyone is equally welcome, whether staying for one night, a week, or for the duration of a whole project. Alone, as a couple, or with the family. Rioca is a place where life feels simple. In your apartment you can cook to your heart’s content, feel at home, and sink into a deep, rejuvenating sleep.

Viva a vida
Rioca’s Values

Long live Life



We think of ourselves as friends, as amigões [əˈmiːˌɡəʊ]. Run of the mill standard service is not our style. Because everyone is individual, everyone receives their service just the way they want it.

Zest for Life:

The true meaning of happiness for a Carioca [kaˈɾjɔka̝] is gratitude for life, good friends, being together and enjoyment. At Rioca Aparthotel, we’ll make your life precisely that simple.

Como tudo começou
Rioca’s Story

At home with friends

It has been some time since our founder, Amos, travelled to Rio completely exhausted and rediscovered life there. The tolerance for people from everywhere, the almost tangible love for life, and the natural warmth of the Cariocas turned Brazil into Amos’ second home. Rioca should be a place where people can encounter what he found in Rio: A home at a friend’s.

Rioca's Responisbility

Being there for one another

Rioca is aware of its responsibility to the environment and fellow human beings. That is why all our drinking water comes straight from the tap. We’ve been supporting the »Padre Dr. Francisco Motta« school by Rio’s harbour, which ensures around 1,100 children from the Favelas get a good education. Feel free to support us!

You’ve got a few questions for us?

Well, we hope so. We are always happy to answer them.
