Recently stayed at the b&b for 5 nights. This is a great place to stay with very homely environment. The room was very clean and great, the view are fantastic, breakfast is simple but very sufficient. But the best part is the people who work there. Ana, Alexendra and Eduardo were fantastic. They genuinely care for their guests. I really... More

This is a fantastic place to stay with an amazing view of Rio de Janeiro. The staff are all very friendly and helpful, so much that when I left it was like leaving family. The single room I stayed in was very tight, but because I felt so welcome it really didn't matter.

I loved the place but I also made a deal with an employee of the hostel and I lost a considerable amount of money. First things first, the place is beautiful and has a great view, if you are allergic to cats or have knee problems this is not the place for you, because it is located on a hill... More

When we choose a travel itinerary created an expectation of happiness without setbacks. The Home of Carmen and Fernando also has the expectation to meet the wish of our guests. In these years of experience, accompanying the published comments, we conclude that most expectations are met and we are grateful for that. We were surprised about the problem cited by... More

We stayed 4 nights here at the start of our holiday in Brazil and could not have chosen a better place. The location is great - close to the centre and walking distance to some great bars and restaurants in Sta Theresa, and to the metro. You also get a good view over Rio, but the best thing is the...

Stayed here for a couple of nights on my own before a working in Rio in December 2012. It's tucked away up a hill on the windy streets of Santa Teresa, which is the old part of the town, very bohemian and full of artists and great cafes & bars. Would highly recommend staying here to see a slice of... More

Stayed in the upstairs room which... More

A gorgeous Bed & Breakfast, with welcoming staff and wonderfully relaxed, bohemian atmosphere. The Casa is situated on the hill in Santa Teresa, overlooking all of Rio with the most spectacular view from the terrace - just addictive! I could (and did) spend hours just glued to that view, incredible in daylight or by night, in sun or with spectacular... More
