“Beautiful B&B, the place to stay in Rio!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

This was a perfect place to stay, out of the way of the busy commercial beach areas, Santa Teresa is a lovely area, up on the hill, quiet, pretty and with some lovely little bars and shops. Its not far in a cab or walking/metro to copacobana/ipanema, christ the redeemer etc. Lapa is just down the hill if you want a great night out in the city, Lance recomended a samba bar and it was brilliant. The B&B is beautiful, stunning house and well presented with everything you could need, great breakfast and helpful staff. There is a rooftop pool and terrace as well. We cant fault this place! Thank you

Lance and his team make this a memorable place. great breakfast, very good english (he's American but his team also speak perfect english, not always a given), wifi great, couldn't do enough to help, these guys achieve excellence that compelled me to write my first review. small and friendly, matched only by location. santa teresa. wow. cobbled stones, shabby chic, a bit rough and ready, totally, utterly safe, samba everywhere, utterly enchanting. all a short walk. without question for my money both casa cool beans and santa teresa are the perfect base to explore and capture the magic of Rio. very quiet but 2 minute walk to everything in santa teresa. thanks so much guys you deserve every success that comes your way. we stayed with a few international 5 star hotel chains on this trip, but yours was the best experience.

We were in Casa Cool Beans for 4 days and had a great time ! We were picked up by an englisch spoken driver (arranged by Casa Cool Beans) and he took us to Santa Teresa. We had a very warm welcome by Lance and he took us to our room. It was a big and very clean room, great bed en good shower. Also the breakfast was excellent. All kind of eggs, fresh fruit, cheese, ham, etc. The staff is very friendly. Santa Teresa is a very nice and Bohemian neighberhood with many restaurants. The only problem is that some taxi's will not take you there because it's in the hills. But there is a Metro Station (Gloria) nearby. This Metro is very safe and clean and we took it many times. We will recomend this Casa to everyone !!

Lance and his team made our short stay in Rio a fantastic experience. Not only is Casa Cool Beans a great place to stay, but it has one if the best locations for discovering Santa Teresa, a fantastic breakfast but to top it all the suggestions and advice we were given meant we made the very best of our stay. Recommended without hesitation!!!

We stayed three nights at Casa Cool Beans. The room, hosts (Lance and Sergio in particular), breakfast and location were all excellent. The time Lance spends with his guests in the morning is great and really very helpful. Rio can be an intimidating place and it's good to hear the tips and tricks to getting around and staying safe. I take the point of some reviewers regarding Lance almost being too full on with his assessment of the risks and dangers but better to be safe than sorry and we really appreciated his help. I would thoroughly recommend Casa Cool Beans to fellow travellers.

We loved CCB. This was our first trip to Rio and we wanted something more than a big hotel. And we certainly got that at CCB. Lance (one of the owners) and Sergio (the general manager) and their staff were fantastic. Lance's input and advice to each guest during breakfast as to activities/sights/transport were absolutely invaluable, even to inveterate travellers. CCB is a house in a wonderful, interesting and fun neighbourhood. The room was spacious, spotless and beautiful. The bed was super comfortable. Breakfast was delicious (the chocolate and passion fruit cake...oh my). Our stay felt comfortable all around. We were so at ease. It really was like visiting those cool friends who moved to Rio.

Fantastic choice of B&B for Rio. Exceptionally helpful & friendly staff who never once failed to provide us with advice on where to go and how to get there. Rooms were spotless, and there was a good selection for Breakfast including fresh cooked eggs and fruit. Set in the picturesque area of Santa Teresa, there are plenty of restaurants near by and some breathtaking view points. Definitely a recommended place to stay when in Rio.
