Stayed at CasaNova for 5 nights during our stay in Rio, and it's a very nice place indeed. Rooms and bathroom are very clean (and cleaned everyday as well). We stayed in the North Room, with shared bathroom, which was perfectly fine. Only one more room that uses that bathroom/toilet.
Breakfast was perfect! Freshly squeezed juice every morning, bread, cereal, yoghurt, fresh fruit, toast, cheese, ham and sponge cake (also home made)! Perfect start of the day.
It's located in Santa Teresa, which is a bit far from the beaches if that's what's on the agenda for your stay in Rio. It's not that hard to get to the beaches, but it will take ~30 minutes or so.
Hosts and maid very nice and helpful.
If you are looking for a clean, nice place, with good value for money, this is the place!
