"the maze" is a great place which offers a unique experience in rio.
It is located in a friendly maze-like neighbourhood (tavares bastos) with touch of a village atmosphere. staying at this place (or visiting the jazz session hold every 1st friday, a month) will offer you a side of rio different from anything what you could usually get as a tourist.
the host, life-experienced englishman Bob, offers not only a fantastic breakfast buffet but also tons of stories about his life as a musician, painter, journalist and filmmaker. his lovely wife and personell add to the friendly atmosphere.
staying at the maze has been an experience I do not want to miss, in no case, and I will surely go back, when in rio again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- National Geographic describes The MAZE as "Unique and Original". Designed and built during 4 decades by Bob Nadkarni (Stanley Kubrick's sculptor-2001 A Space Odyssey). The architecture reflects the Atlantic Forest, the foothills and the sweeping bays which surround it. Situated in a Rio favela, it reveals the source of Brazil's creativity whilst being the safest location in Rio de Janeiro. The MAZE is a family home, family run. It's typical guests are architects, writers, photographers, artists, musicians and adventurous souls. Probably not for anyone with serious mobility difficulties or cat phobia however. The view is probably the finest in Rio. The Breakfast is big. Guest chat'n'mingle is wonderful and stimulating. The MAZE is a fine-art museum with a jazz night celebrated (4 years running) by US DOWNBEAT Magazine amongst the "World's Top Jazz Venues" The owner, ex BBC TV correspondent, ex war cameraman, painter, writer and jazzman welcomes you into his home and his world.
