This hotel is a perfect weekend escape. If you want a change from the Rio beachscene this is the place to go. The chalet was cozy with a welcoming lighted fireplace. Service is near perfect, very friendly and always ready to assist. The restaurant serves great food. We arrived rather late but the kitchen stayed fully operative until we had... More

Once again we stayed at the Tankamana and had a very nice time there. A hidden place in the mountains surrounding Rio de Janeiro, in Itaipava, a district from the "Imperial" City of Petrópolis. If you are looking for a quiet (very) place surrounded by trees, this is it. It is a few kilometers after the end of the tarmac... More
