I had a very lovely stay. Safe and comfortable. This place is located just on top of the Selarón stairs. So the location is awesome. Going down the stairs you would meet the very local neighborhood of Lapa, walking to the right, Gloria, there is a nice market on Sunday mornings next to the Gloria subway station. Give it a...

The place is located in Lapa - famous for parties and the stairs (Escadria Selaron), about 10 mins of walking from the nearest metro station, so no problem going to the beach. The rooms and facilities are good for the price, but you also get an amazing view of the business district from the patio as a bonus. The staff... More

Located in a very nice historic part of Rio, nearby bus and subway stations and literally side of "Escadaria Selarón". The view from the outdoor area is wonderful! Accomodations are very good and clean, they have a super kind staff and a delicious breakfast (partially homemade delights). Just an advice, be prepared to walk up and down stairs or to... More
