Very beautiful, well decorated and well located hotel. It's missing some renovations though, specially in the swimming pool, thats has many missing tiles and looks somehow dirty. The bedroom had some major issues for me: first, the windows wouldn't close properly so it got so clawe in the morning we could not sleep any longer. Second, I thought the hotel... More

Beautiful Hotel situated on a hill in the neighbourhood of Santa Teresa. Everything has been taken care of to the ultimate detail: swimmingpool, service, room, ameneties, food. The breakfast and dinner are sublime! The best in Rio (and we visited many restaurants, much more expensive than this one!) The only down side is that it is not near the beach,... More

The hotel exceeded my expectations on its decor, spaciousness, service, pool & lounge, and room. But it can't be five stars bc there was a wedding party using the bar to themselves past 11 - including set up during the whole day. There was a lot of noise in my room. I told the front desk twice and got different... More

Everything about this place makes you feel special and cozy. The decoration is sophisticated and connected with the local nature at the same time. Beautiful place. Amazing restaurants. Highly recommend for business or romance.

Santa Teresa Hotel is a breath of fresh air from the rush of dt Rio. The hotel is impeccable. We stayed in a suite and loved the room. The bathroom was beautiful and the bed very comfortable.

Hotel ST is greatly located in the charming Santa Teresa area. It's a stylish boutique hotel with great architecture, nice rooms and very friendly staff. Additionally there is a cool bar and an outstanding Restaurant. We had a pleasant stay.

Lovely hotel, but I think it was a bit over-priced. The staff were wonderful and overall the facilities were good. My only problem was that the hotel was a little difficult to find when I arrived in Rio.

Great hotel with tastefully designed and spacious rooms. Great view from the pool and the restaurant is good for both breakfast and dinner. Stayed three nights together with my girlfriend and we loved the location in Santa Teresa, away from traffic noise and ugly skyscrapers. Most taxis get lost in Santa Teresa, but you will get there eventually.

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
