Fantastic stay - will definitely return! I stayed for 6 nights in May 2014. Glad I didn't stay in a hotel; I think this was much more of a "local" experience. Like other reviews mention, Fatima was away and Raquel/Rachel was looking after the guests. There were also several other women in the house: Teresa (she cooks the best-smelling food!),... More

We stayed here for 5 nights. Fatima was away for a couple of days, but a friend of hers (Rachel) was very friendly. With her help we got to see lots of Rio (f.i. the cable car that gives you an amazing view of the vafelas Complexo do Alemão). And, for us important. She speaks English. Rooms are good compared...

Fatima is a great host! Leblon is the nicest neighbourhood in Rio. She was very accomodating even offering us a glass of wine! The only criticism I have is that when we needed to use the Internet she would get is her daughter's laptop to use and we felt like we were intruding - it'd be worth while investing in... More

Fatima was amazing with us - we were there in the run up to Carnival this year and she pulled out her fancy dress/costume bag and let us help ourselves to headbands and other fun stuff! It was amazing. Her house is lovely, the room is very lovely and the location is the best of all! With a grocery store... More

I was there last year in June. 4 Blocks from the beach in the very pricey and pretty Leblon neighborhood. While you share a bathroom (although you have your own toilet and sink in the room), the bathroom is spotless. Fatima is very nice and very helpful. Next time I go to Rio, I would definitely return there

This hostel is in a really great location of Leblon. Close to the best beach and many good restaurants, of all different budgets near by. There is also a good supermarket close by. Fatima is so nice, they will help organize tours and give you suggestions on where to eat. Breakfast is delicious, we had a wonderful stay here. www.FatimaMacintyreGuesthouse.com

We didn’t actually meet Fatima during our 2 night stay in her apartment, or see any other guests although we faintly heard them on occasion. A very nice girl showed us in when we arrived but we didn’t see her again either. This was partly a bit strange seeing as you are literally sleeping in Fatima’s spare room, but on... More

We stayed four nights at Fatima Macintyre's house. First, this is not a bed and breakfast. You can buy your own groceries and fix a breakfast and she does have small refrigerators in the rooms. The kitchen is quite small and we had to take turns in the kitchen... and in the shower as it is shared between the three... More

My husband and I booked our stay with Fatima based mostly on the TripAdvisor reviews, and the place was just as great as we hoped. Her home is three blocks from the beach (about a 10-minute walk) and close to major bus lines and taxis. Plus the place is really cozy, decorated in a bohemian style with lots of books... More
