“Did not want to leave!”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

My husband and I booked to stay at Casa da Carmen e do Fernando for 3 nights. We ended up staying 5 and would have been tempted to stay longer if we didn't have a flight to catch. The location is great in a charming neighbourhood with a fantastic view over Rio. The balcony with pool (plunge) was great to spend an afternoon or morning relaxing before heading into busy Rio. Breakfasts were generous and at a table looking out at the view. Carmen, Fernando and their staff were welcoming, helpful and patient with our non existent Portuguese. This place definitely made our trip to Rio a success.

Lovely view, great value, quiet, interesting location, helpful staff.

To get the view they are located on a steep hill. The bus stops right outside, but if you are going to walk up you need to be fit..

Location is quite convenient for a short staying . Located in a nice area of rio but quite far from seaside. The room was small and not confortable for 3 pax. However you can enjoy a bedutiful viene of the city from there. Carmen and Fernando are very nice ppl and u feel like being home. Very special breakfast in the Morning in the veranda facing the city.

This hostel, reasonably priced at the same cost as a standard hotel room, offers travellers a homely and comfortable base from which to explore the most fascinating and colourful neighbourhood in Rio - Santa Teresa - with its great restaurants and vibrant art scene. The rooms and breakfast were of a good standard, and the balcony with mini pool perfect for relaxing and taking in views of the city below. A good option for people who want to experience a little of the local culture as opposed to merely slogging around the tourist spots

We spent 4 nights in Casa da Carmen e do Fernando during our honeymoon. The place in really charming, with all those pieces of art and objects from all over the world. Our room was very nice, clean and comfortable. All the staff has been really helpfull and provided us good tips about were to go and what to do in Rio. We have been able to enjoy Rio and relax.The only little stain is that it is located in Santa Teresa and to reach it and come back at night you have to catch a taxi or bus (you can't walk, it is near the top of a hill, and even for safety reasons), but transports are safe. I strongly recommend it to other travelers with an average budget who really want to feel home.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the terrace are less noisy and with a great wiew.

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)
