We stayed here on the last day of our Trip to Brazil before going to the airport. The neighbourhood is charming with old houses and gorgeous views. Hotel is absolutely divine, I wish we had more time. The decor is absolutely amazing. The room was huge, the bed super comfortable. The shower had the view of Corcovado from the window!... More

I really like this hotel and take it usually for one or two nights before I go to Copacabana or Ipanema for the rest of my holiday in Rio. I like the quiet area of this hotel, the good restaurant ideal for dinner, the pool and the nice rooms. The only two minor point are that we were twice without... More

Amazing view over Rio and perfect cappuccino! Big win on that one. This is chill out paradise, perfect for a few days in between impanema beach action. Santa Teresa is boho Rio, great to wander, jog etc and the food ! You will just have to come to check that out as I don't have all day to write !

Very fashionable place. First of all this hotel is situated in one of Rio best areas, if you like to be out of the super touristic areas (copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon etc.). Very nicely transformed house. Rooms are very cosy but the prices can be very (extrem) high depending the moment you book. Always try to get a good deal online.... More

Nothing going for it apart from the view. Fawlty Towers on a hill. If you want anything done, do it yourself. So badly organised they couldn't arrange a wake up call - we called them to make sure our breakfast arrived and our taxi transfer to the airport was on time - if not we would have missed our flight....

Dear Guest, The service of our Hotel Santa Teresa is probably one of the best in Rio de Janeiro. Upon your arrival you've been received in the best way possible. The reception informed you that a private dinner was organized in our Térèze restaurant. However, our pool lounge was reserved for guest. When you was at the pool area, a... More

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
