A warm and welcoming guest house in the center of Santa Teresa. A fantastic location, with wonderful hosts who are always ready to share information about the best places to eat or visit in the city. The house itself is bright and cheerful, the breakfast is delicious and included fresh fruit and juices and other local delicacies. The house is... More

There's much more to Rio than just Ipanema and the Corcovado. To get in touch with the Carioca spirit, with another way of experiencing to be happy, just go to Casa de Carmen e Fernando. Santa Teresa is an old neighborhood where there's a good number of restored houses, including Carmen e Fernando's. That's a good start. The hosts, Carmen... More

I had a wonderful experience here. Be warned, the attic room with the separate bathroom can get very hot in the summertime! The air conditioner is also quite loud in that room, so my partner who is a light sleeper had a lot of trouble the first night. The Casa was very nice and helpful and were able to move... More

Stunningly located in beautiful Santa Terese, Carmen and Fernando's house is a cross between a beautiful old colonial home and designer's warehouse loft. The terrace with the pool are heaven. Chiara and Alexandra are the warmest and welcoming staff you will ever encounter, always willing to help. Easy short walk to Gloria metro station and the local bus stops nearby.... More

This was a beautiful surprise. On a very residential street, you pull up to an unmarked door and what's behind it is wonderful. The rooms were lovely and we had the small patio and swimming pool to ourselves while we were there. The breakfast was homemade every morning and delicious. But our stay was really made wonderful by Ciara, the... More

Beautiful place perched on the edge of Santa Teresa with stunning views over Rio. This is a lovely place to stay with a great lounge and terrace for guests to relax, delicious breakfast and helpful staff. There are plenty of nice restaurants within 10 minutes walk and also 10 minutes to the metro.

Carmen and Fernando's house is a beautiful and charming B&B placed in between Gloria and Santa Teresa, just a short walk to the centre and the metro. Carmen and the rest and the staff are really nice and they're always available and willing to recommend places and trips. The room was not very big (but they told us in advance,... More

Great views from the balcony, just a shame we missed the monkeys! Good location for the shops and restaurants in Santa Teresa and within easy walking distance from the nightlife of Lapa. We only stayed for one night and spent very little time in our room but the service was good and I'd definitely go back there. My favourite part... More
