We loved our stay here. It was so beautiful inside and out - the interior design is heavenly, the location amazing, and the staff very friendly. Do not except to be waited on hand & foot, however, especially at the pool. We travelled as a family, there were other children there but it is not geared really towards children. I...

The hotel has nice grounds and a good pool. The entry level rooms are tiny however, with no room for clothing. Had to leave luggage in the middle of the room, and clothing inside the luggage. Several water pipes left a constant sound of flowing water that got stronger after the upstairs rooms flushed the toilet or took a shower....

Wonderful stay at Santa Teresa as the first leg of our honeymoon. On arrival late at night the staff could not have been more helpful and were willing to hold the kitchen open for us if we wanted to have a meal. The neighbourhood is very quirky and felt very safe during the day (as per most of Rio, at...

each of the 60 rooms is unique, and great location in the heart of Santa Teresa district. The restaurant is superb, excelent cuisine. One person of my group has nut allergy and they could easily adjust to that (there was even an observation about it in his reservation, so they already knew that nuts should be avoided in his orders)....

Just check out yesterday after a 12 day trip in Brazil. This was the perfect place to relax, enjoy the pool and bohemian neighborhood. Would highly recommend this hotel. The breakfast was enjoyable along with salmon tartare for lunch at the pool.

Staying in Santa Teresa

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors can now stroll through this area to view magnificent mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a former mansion turned museum which houses works by prominent Brazilian modern artists.
