The staff were fantastic, so lovely, friendly and welcoming, it was like going to stay with family!! The building itself is quite unusual as it's an... More

This is a remarkable building. It's one of those old houses during the colonial times that has survived and been renovated back to its loveliness. The interaction of its original features with contemporary interiors is done nicely and subtly that it still comes out quite homely. We had our dinner here which was amazing and drinks are offered here too.... More

The staff is very attentive taking care of our every needs. Especially Lucia... More

We loved our stay at Casa Amarelo! It is a beautiful villa in Santa Teresa, tastefully decorated and an unforgettable view over the city. Within walking distance to Lapa. It felt like home away from home with a beautiful private pool area in a tropical garden. The staff is extremely friendly, kind and helpful. The best rooms are upstairs or... More

What a nice place! The building is amazing, the staff is super friendly and helpful, and the room was nice and clean. Breakfast was also very good. Our room was situated in the garden, with banana trees and mango trees and friendly monkeys just outside. It's far from the beach, but it's worth to stay here, Santa Teresa is a... More

First time in Casa Amarelo but it felt like coming back to a place well known before. It´s all about the kindness and very friendly service of the Casa Amarelo and the charme of an old manor house. The owner of the Hotel converted the house in an gentle way into a large opening composition of new and fresh design... More

During a long business trip in Rio I came across Casa Amarelo online and opted to stay there for a week to see what it was like. I was extremely pleased with what I found, so much so that I decided to stay an extra week. In fact I would have stayed longer, had not the hotel been already fully... More

Casa Amarelo is great place to stay in Santa Teresa. You have to be careful at night in this area, like in much of Rio, but other than that we had a great time their. The breakfast was wonderful and relaxing by the pool a joy. The owner and staff were very helpful and professional. If arriving at night I'd... More
