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

On a recent trip and exploration of Rio I found Hotel Santa Teresa by accident and within 24 hours had moved from my Copacabana hotel to Santa Teresa. Every small detail including the warm and friendly staff, the stunning house, the privacy, lush gardens, breakfast made my stay so memorable. I extending my stay twice ! I truly wanted to... More

I stayed at this hidden gem during Carnival and I loved every second of it. My room was excellent. I truly enjoyed the pool/lounge area, the views are fantastic. The front desk was always very helpful and accommodated what ever need I had. The spa did a great job pampering me. But by far the crown jewel of this wonderful... More

For £200 / night you would think you would get your money's worth but no. The showers are blocked up with a broken tap, the swimming pools were dirty, 2 hotel managers had a shouting match just outside our window where we can hear everything ( how unprofessional!!), and breakfast was NOT included. This hotel seriously can't give me a... More

We were SO glad that we got to spend three nights at this beautiful spot during our honeymoon in Rio. We got a great rate (yay for the exchange rate) on a very cool corner suite with an indoor/outdoor setup. The room was really spectacular in size and decor. Plus, the hotel's location is slightly remote from the touristy parts... More

Stayed here for 3 nights early Jan. The hotel is in an ideal location -- walking distance from all the restaurants/bars in Santa Teresa. We felt fairly safe. It's about a $10 USD cab to beach areas. They could set up the service a bit. We had to ask for things multiple times etc. We stayed in room 25. It... More

Hotel Santa Teresa is a beautiful property, with stunning tropical gardens and a rustic-beach-chic decor. The rooms are large and beautifully appointed. The hotel has a restaurant with above avarage food and a bar with great drinks and a nice vibe, but on the noisy side. Service is good in general, with some of the staff being really helpful and...
