Reviewed 29 April 2014

Nice hotel, fantastic breakfast where you can feed banana's to small monkeys, with a very friendly manager.

Room was in good condition with nice views, hotel itself has views of Christ the Redeemer and is located near a favela in Gavea where you can take a tour with a local called Paulo, not an official tour and so much more interesting, the guy knows everyone and ran in 1976 Olympics with Seb Coe!

Any question you fielded to the staff was answered with confidence, their knowledge of the city was good and they pointed us in the right direction for several things. Christian was particularly helpful.

This place is faultless!

With only 4 rooms it really does feel like you're a guest in someone's beautiful home.

Manager Christian is a top guy who, with his attentive team look after their visitors with great respect and first class service.

The pool and terrace are great places to relax and enjoy this tropical luxury.

Location-wise La Maison is just up the hill from Gavea which has some really fun bars and decent shopping. Within easy reach of the beaches at Ipanema and further along Copacabana. Also only a short taxi to the major sights of the city.

Book here and you'll be very happy that you did.

My daughter (en route to Argentina for a study abroad program) and I stayed at La Maison just before Carnival and it was a great find and a great lodging choice. La Maison is a small boutique hotel in a former residence in the quiet Gavea neighborhood within easy walking distance of LeBlon and Ipanema (20 to 30 min) and a shorter walk to the bus terminal next to the planetarium (10 to 15 minutes), which includes a bus route linking with the Metro. Christian (the manager) got us tickets in advance (great seats at a great price) for a soccer match in Maracana (don't miss this chance), and Christian, Jacques (an owner along with his brother) and other staff gave us unfailing restaurant recommendations, made a connection with a great driver/guide, arranged transportation and helped us in so many ways. The included breakfast was excellent and they have a chef who can prepare food from a limited menu. I would return to La Maison and make this choice in a heartbeat over anything in Ipanema or LeBlon. In fact, I walked or rode past a number other hotels that I had reviewed online, which always validated the choice of La Maison. Well done Jacques!

Just came back from Rio where I spent a week at La Maison. Fantastic little jewel located in a lovely green area, near the beaches of Leblon and Ipanema, and walking distance from the Botanical Gardens. Jacques has a great team with him ( Christian and Marcelo ) and they were very helpful. They gave us some great tips about where to go, eat, what to visit - which made our stay there even more pleasant. I recommend the breakfast ( delicious ! ) in the morning, while looking at the view of Rio. Splendid ! ... Definitely worth it !! ... Come on Jacques + team - keep the good work.

Room Tip: Recamier has a magnificent view of Christ the Redeemer

We have found our home away from home in Rio! Situated in the residential area of Rio, on a steep hillsinde high above Ipanema, with a spellbinding view of the Corcovado, this is a truly authentic, but totally elegant, chic private home, with only five rooms. Reserve well in advance! The owner and manager can't do enough to make you feel welcome, and assist you with any questions, restaurant recommendations, flight bookings etc. The rooms are refined, understated luxury, beautifully decorated without being overtrendy fake hype, like so often encountered. It is totally quiet, with just the distant hum of faint music emanating from the favellas way above "La Maison" to lull you to sleep as you enjoy a last drink on the terrace of your room.

Room Tip: Our favorite is the Recammier, although the Copacabana is also splendid

Awesome hotel and really made our trip to Rio. We stayed in both the Shanghai & Copacabana rooms, both were well presented and comfortable but the Copacabana room was very special with a view that's out of this world! The staff were all really helpful and always happy to help, special mention to Christian who really went the extra mile and is a great asset to the hotel. The pool is beautiful and you can see the Christ statue and views over Rio from most parts of the hotel. Walk to Ipanema in ~25minutes (taxi never took us more than 5-10min and cost £5 or less)
Will definitely go again & recommend to any couples!!

We stayed here on a 50% off deal, and for that I think it was great value. At full price however, I would have been a little disappointed. The communal areas are beautiful and the breakfast was delicious, our room though was a little small and a bit shabby around the edges. I had also underestimated the time it would take to travel into central Rio as the traffic there is so bad! Sometimes taking us up to an hour in a taxi and likely to get worse with World Cup and Olympics. Staff were very friendly and helpful though!

Room Tip: We stayed in Tiffany Room, it was quite small but the shower was great!
