We stayed here for 4 nights last week and loved every minute. The atmosphere of this place is just perfect.

Hotel Santa Teresa ensured that our second visit to Rio surpassed our previous visit. This was due to the hotel's stunning location, the spacious, beautifully decorated rooms and above all the wonderful staff. For the staff nothing was too much trouble be it at the reception desk, in the dining room or round the swimming pool. We valued the advice... More

Santa Teresa was a beautiful property - full of interesting nooks and crannies and a fabulous design. There was some really great Brazilian design classics from a furniture perspective throughout the property. The weather wasn't great so we didn't get to enjoy the stunning pool to the best potential. The only thing I didn't like from a design POV were... More

This luxurious boutique hotel is an oasis in amongst the hustle and bustle of Rio. It is set on lush green property and feels worlds away from the noise and crowds. The rooms are cool and comfortable with four poster beds, complimentary sandals, large showers, and tropical decor. The pool area is small, but lovely. Good pool bar service with... More

Rare and beautifully put together boutique hotel with superb service. Relais & Chateaux, it's a perfect fit for your brand. My first visit was for an evening cocktail in the relaxed, yet chic bar lounge. I loved the bohemian elements mixed with traditional Brazilian handcrafts from Minas Gerais. A brilliant mix of design throughout the whole property. Innovative, creative, understated... More

This is a lovely hotel in Rio de Janeiro. I love the decor (however I am a bit concerned about its aging). Staff is wonderful. Very good service. Excellent food. The spa is also excellent. Location is not good; its far from most attractions. I wouldn't recommend it for people who wish to enjoy the city and the beaches, but... More

Hotel Santa Teresa is an exceptionally beautifully designed hotel, and located in a charming, bohemian part of town that many visitors would risk missing if they didn't stay there. Avoid the smaller rooms and go for a junior suite - the step up in quality is well worth the price. The only problem is with sound insulation of the rooms:... More

Everyone told me to stay on the beach in Rio. I didn't listen because I have beautiful beaches at home in California. I was more interested in being immersed in the culture and jungle of Brazil. My dad and I stayed at Hotel Santa Teresa for two nights. Upon our arrival, we were given a warm welcome by the employees... More
