We spent a wonderful week at Villa Laurinda. The colonial building with swimming pool and garden is very charming. All the staff was very very nice with us. Breakfast on the shadowy terrace was a marvellous begin of the day. Santa Teresa is one of the more fascinating part of Rio.

Wonderful and relaxing stay in a super quiet area of Rio. Everyone was very accommodating and kind. A bit of a climb to get to the subway but if you want to stay fit - it's perfect. We will be back for sure!

A lovely week at Villa Laurinda. The staff were fantastic, Cleiton and Freddie really went out of their way with recommendations for eating, getting us tickets for the Saturday evening of the carnival, how to get to a quiet beach and much more. The staff at breakfast and others were also lovely. Thank you all for a lovely stay. The... More

This is a great place to stay just a short walk from Santa Teresa, which is a vibrant street with great places up eat and soak up the bohemian vibe. The people who run the villa are great. There was a problem settling our bill but the people were very trustworthy to leave our details to pay the next day.... More

This is a lovely B+B. Clayton was there to greet us and his English is very good! We had the room for 3 people with private bath and it was quite roomy. The beds were kind of hard (hubby like that) and the bathroom was large and nicely upgraded! There are no toiletries so bring your own. No Tv...don't need... More

Villa Laurinda is a beautyful old house in the heart of Santa Teresa, a charmant area in the old Rio full of nice restaurants and shops. Our stay was perfect, thanks to the manager Clayton and the wonderful breakfast prepared by Claudia, a smiling lady of the staff. The room was very elegant and confortable
