My husband and I don't get to travel together to overseas destinations very often - so when we do we want it to be memorable - something to look back on fondly in our later years. Our stay at Um Meia Tres will be one such occassion we will cherish. It was all the things previous reviews have said -... More

We had a fantastic time in Rio and the hospitality offered at Um Meia Tres was the icing on the cake. Bill and Sue are not only knowledgeable about where to go but they have a keen interest in the culture of Cariocans which helps you to appreciate the city even more. The rooms are spotless with really comfortable beds... More

Having chosen to stay here based on the reviews we had read, we were certainly not disappointed. Bill and Sue and Simon are the perfect hosts and made our four night stay in Rio all the more enjoyable as a result of the information and advice they gave us about getting the most out of our time there. We had... More

I always think it's a safer bet to stay in one of the big chain hotels like Hilton, Best Western or Holiday Inn - at least you know what you are getting. Whilst we have stayed in good smaller accommodation we have also stayed at premises that have been far from satisfactory. No such worries with Um Meia Tres though... More

We arrived early on the red eye, directions emailed to us we're great, taxi got us right there and we don't speak Portuguese! The Santa Teresa district is hilly and is tough getting up to the property from Santa Teresa centre, wear good shoes and be reasonably fit if you wish to walk. The property is really quaint and has... More

It took me some time to review, but even now, almost 4 months after we left Rio, we still remember Um Meia Tres as the best place we stayed at, in a month long trip to Argentina, Chille and Rio. Other than the view, of course, we loved the feeling that Bill and Sue gave the guests. As if we... More

We stayed at this very pleasant B&B for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Don't stay here if you want all the conveniences of a hotel as it is not for you. If you want to experience life in the heart & soul of Rio then do yourself a favour and stay here. It is in a very atmospheric area... More

This is wonderful place to stay away from the usual tourists spots. The other reviews' ratings are very accurate. Of course, the room was lovely, and the view spectacular. The breakfasts are very nice. Santa Theresa is a cool neighborhood--lively enough, well located, and a pleasant retreat from the bustling city. But it was Bill and Sue who made my... More

Arriving in Rio late at night from UK and with no Portuguese language skills, it was really helpful to have such well informed hosts as Bill and Sue. They helped us with our planning both before and after our stay in November 2012, and went well beyond the call of duty in helping us out of a hole when we... More

Can't really add to anything everyone has already said. Bill & Sue were wonderful hosts, very helpful. If we're back in Rio, we won't even look for anywhere else. As soon as we'd booked we received an e-mail offering any advice / assistance needed, & also instructions in English & Portuguese how to get to the hotel from the airport... More
