“Home away from home in Rio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2012

This was the first time traveling to Brazil, so I was a little skeptical about staying somewhere other than the big name hotels. All of my doubts were put aside as soon as we were greeted by Christiane as the front door. She really made us feel welcomed in her home, even showing us around the neighborhood within an hour of being there and getting settled in. It is this level of personal service that makes me glad that I didn't book a tacky hotel for my stay in Rio. Hotel employees generally don't invest the time and effort in making sure their guests are content simply because they don't need to. Because Christiane owns, lives in, and operates this bed and breakfast, she take personal interest in making sure that all her guests are happy. She even brought us around Rio to tourist and non-tourist venues and restaurants. Every morning we were served a delicious traditional Brazilian breakfast of fresh fruits, bread, jam, cheese and juices. Our rooms were kept clean on a daily basis and WiFi is provided free of charge. The area is very safe with 24 hr security booths at each end of the block and one right in front of the house. Restaurants and shops are all within walking distance, not to mention the beach is only a block away! It was sad to leave and return to winter in New York, but the memories and experiences had on this trip will always be cherished.

The B&B is in an ideal location, everything is within walking distance. The house is beautiful the beach is two blocks away and the restaurants are a block away and plenty of public transportation. We rented a car but we had plenty of alternatives if needed. The rooms are very clean and spacious the breakfast was fantastic. Christiane is an exceptional host she provided us with great direction and made our stay in Brazil even more memorable. I would recommend casa da Guedes to all my friends and to anyone that asks me. We went there to train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and the accommodations were much more comfortable than the other places in the area.

We stayed here for 5 days during new years. The place is beautiful, much nicer then even the pictures shows. The area is also nice, easy to get to downtown rio, but also a grat bech and nice placec in the neighbourhood.
The best were the host though. Christiana is helpfull with everything you need, and is realy nice to talk to. An example was new years eve when one of us were a bit hungry and everything was closed down, or just for private parties. But she called around and got us great food real cheep, she haggeled the price, got us extra meet and we had a fiest at here house where she made a nice dinner table. We also got great bacalao from here mom!
After we left, we went to ihla grande and paraty, but the day we were going home and had to go from ihla grande to the airport in rio, she offered us to stop at here's place at our way to leave the luggage while we were hanggliding. after we were done we had a swim in the pool and we got to have a shower and some coffee before we went to the airport. She was always helpfull to call cabs, find resturants, and fix things. She spoke good english as well.
I have been to 150 towns around the world and just as many hotels/hostels/b&b but never met such a good host. She were our Brazilian Mom :) Would love to come back.

This B&B is located away from the touristy areas in a charming house in wealthy neighborhood (Barra de Tjuica) which is a short bus ride down town. The B&B is very clean, well appointed and comes with a delicious breakfast. However, what makes this place special is the friendly and extremely knowledgeable host Christiane. Every morning she gave us a list of things to do if the weather was bad and places to eat. Highly recommended unless you are allergic to cats/dogs.

Stayed at Christiane's beautiful home earlier this year (2011). Now Rio is a beautiful and exciting city set in a stunning strip of coast but it has crazy traffic and get a bit warm. What do you need after a hard day sight seeing and soaking up the excitement of Rio? Casa da Guedes. An oasis of calm, hidden from the street with a beautiful little garden and a pool to cool off. If you really want to cool off the beach is just 7 minutes walk where the beautiful azure green waves will help you forget the hustle and bustle and in no time you'll think you are on a desert island.
Back at Casa Da Guedes your stunning host, Christiane, will ply you with refreshments and bright smiles.
Believe me you won't want a hotel after you've experienced Casa da Guedes.

I stayed at Casa da Guedes during my recent and first visit to Rio. The B&B is in an excellent location in a safe and quiet location, two blocks from Barra Beach and there are a lot of really good restaurants and bars around! The house is full of character and charm and the owners are full of Brazilian hospitality; they made me feel so welcome and at home!!

My room was comfortable and clean and I had access to the wireless internet. They own cats and dogs which are cute and loveable......

Would I recommend Casa da Guedes?................... I see the owners as my friends so wholeheartedly!!! When I return to Rio I will definitely stay there again.....

It's a great house with a few rooms for rent. There's a free parking, you got to keep the keys and the street is quite safe.

The house owners are very attencious and providers, and can help with all your needs while in Rio.

It's very close to the beach and has a good range of restaurants, bars, clubs and services that you can go on by foot. It's also very close to bus lines.

Great value!
