We stayed in The Rio Guest House in early January 2014 for 8 nights. The Rio Guest House is located on the top two penthouse floors of what could be described as a beach side residential high-rise building. The views are just stunning and the setting and furnishings within the beach-house is really lovely and tastefully appointed (as can be seen by its photos).
Marta is a lovely, caring and vivacious hostess who is there to support you (with some great contacts on seeing Rio) but at the same time is not intrusive in you wanting privacy. Another good feature is the 24 hour doorman located on the ground floor keeping access to the building safe. The location of The Guest House is also useful with many major banks just on the corner, a good laundry across the road, 24 hour cafes nearby and small supermarkets just around the corner.
The traditional Brazilian breakfast served varies each day and is offered in a communal table setting allowing you to mingle and exchange stories with the other guests. Another handy feature is a keypad safe in your room for your valuables and there is a computer for transferring your holiday photos to USB drives which also has internet access.More
