“nice stay in the middle of rio”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

fantastic stay in the middle of rio. very easy to the center and the metro. The rooms were very good (clean and well looking) and also the breakfast. The location is in the heart of santa theresa on the hill with a view over Rio.

Please check the prices before (in front of the weekend / holiday the prices will go higher as in the internet published). If you come at night than it is necessary to take a taxi (it is not easy to find a taxi in dumontairport becase the way is short and the street difficult); by day metro till station gloria is fine and than a ten minute walk (located on the hill and the streets are diffcult)

Recently stayed at the b&b for 5 nights. This is a great place to stay with very homely environment. The room was very clean and great, the view are fantastic, breakfast is simple but very sufficient. But the best part is the people who work there. Ana, Alexendra and Eduardo were fantastic. They genuinely care for their guests. I really enjoyed my stay and definitely strongly recommend this b&b. I hope that I can visit Rio soon and will definitely stay here.

This is a fantastic place to stay with an amazing view of Rio de Janeiro. The staff are all very friendly and helpful, so much that when I left it was like leaving family.

The single room I stayed in was very tight, but because I felt so welcome it really didn't matter.

Room Tip: The double rooms are beautiful. Try to avoid booking one of the lower rooms with shared bathroom

I loved the place but I also made a deal with an employee of the hostel and I lost a considerable amount of money.

First things first, the place is beautiful and has a great view, if you are allergic to cats or have knee problems this is not the place for you, because it is located on a hill and you have to walk nearly 15 minutes to get there. If you can afford taking a taxi everyday (I really don't recommend this, taxis at Rio are very expensive) you don't have a problem. I also don't recommend this place for families with kids, it doesn't have many playful things to do. The rooms are comfortable and they are always clean, but only one has a view of the city and the ocean, the others have a view to the hostel. The thing that I loved the most was the breakfast, it was awesome.

Now, I have the obligation with you to tell my experience at the Casa because I don't want any other tourist to live what I had to live with one of the receptionists. They all are lovely and ready to help you, but I made the mistake of making a deal with Ana Araujo Lima (yes, I'm saying the name because I made the deal with one person, not the entire hostel) and when all went wrong she kept an amount of my money. Please people, write things down so you can have a support when this kind of things happen. I didn't do it and I feel tricked and robed and can't do anything about it, just tell you this so it doesn't happen to you.

Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy your time at Rio, it is a wonderful city.

When we choose a travel itinerary created an expectation of happiness without setbacks. The Home of Carmen and Fernando also has the expectation to meet the wish of our guests. In these years of experience, accompanying the published comments, we conclude that most expectations are met and we are grateful for that.
We were surprised about the problem cited by this host with our work! This issue should have been resolved between the parties involved! Because the colaborator quoted is very well qualified and has our full confidence!
This space should be used for the comments about the bed and breakfast!
We value people who access the site and we consider fundamental condition not constrains them with personal issues!

We stayed 4 nights here at the start of our holiday in Brazil and could not have chosen a better place. The location is great - close to the centre and walking distance to some great bars and restaurants in Sta Theresa, and to the metro. You also get a good view over Rio, but the best thing is the staff. Everyone was so welcoming, friendly and helpful. They really made it feel like a home from home.

Stayed here for a couple of nights on my own before a working in Rio in December 2012. It's tucked away up a hill on the windy streets of Santa Teresa, which is the old part of the town, very bohemian and full of artists and great cafes & bars. Would highly recommend staying here to see a slice of Rio properly. The guesthouse is beautiful and relaxed and all the staff really friendly and helpful - all spoke impeccable English. It has a lovely terrace overlooking Santa Teresa and the Centro district (not the most perfect view, but cool none the less) and the rooms are simple but fairly clean and full of character. A lovely fresh breakfast round a big table in the dining room made it easy to get chatting to other guests and swap tips about the city. Great value too - will definitely pay a visit when I'm next in Rio.

Everything about this place is fantastic!

A beautiful house in stunning Santa Teresa, close to loads of art, bars and restaurants.

Amazing terrace to relax on and lovely staff, had such a superb time here and in Rio - it's the perfect place to base yourself. Breakfast and cleanliness is a really high standard.

Stayed in the upstairs room which has it's own personal balcony with great views of Centro and the bay. It is a bit quirky with a small spiral staircase and the private bathroom downstairs but so worth it.

10mins walk to the subway and buses up a steep hill (how else do you expect such views) but very affordable taxis and combi van that stop outside so easy to access if that put you off or for late at night.

Highly recommended for those wanting a cool place to stay in Rio - I'd totally stay here again!
