Placed on Santa Teresa, this 4 floor house is full of charm and has an warm atmosphere. The staff is very friendly, speak at least 2 languages and will help you on anything you need. The concept is like you live in a real house, with view to Lapa Arches! One thing: staff is not always available at night as... More

Very nice pousada in Santa Teresa district, it offers the basic services with a very special  attention to the guest. You feel at home, don't be shy you can ask whatever question you have and they will help you. Breakfast is good, there is even a small terrace with a view on the city to chill out. If possible, take... More

The location is great, being a short walk away from Arcos Do Lapa and the Escadaria Selarón and is set in the artistic hotspot that is Santa Teresa.The room we stayed in had a great view of the Centro area and...

the pousada is lovely, the people working there are very friendly. I liked the rooms and the garden and the view. A great base to visit Rio. The neighbourhood is pretty calm, and nice to come back to after visits or the beach.

We stayed with a couple of friends at the Casa da Gente during the Worldcup. Just a 2mn walk from the famous Selaron stairs, 5mn walk to the Lapa party area, and metro and buses are easily accessible and direct to most touristic places. Love the decoration, the breakfast in the garden with homemade yogurt, the great advise from the... More

Four friends and me stayed twice in this nice pousada during the world cup and we had a great experience here. The pousada is very well located, 5 minutes walk from the Arcos do Lapa where you find the best nightlife of Rio. The pousada itself is extremely charming with little artworks of a local artist. The view from the... More

We stayed here for 6 nights during the world cup and immediately felt at home. Great view from the garden and very relaxing environment with helpful and friendly staff. Location wise it couldn't be better placed for exploring Lapa and Santa Teresa as well as Rio itself. Would recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in Rio.

We stayed here for 4 nights on our first trip to Rio/Brazil. Pauline, the host, was very kind and patient. She told us everything we wanted to know about the neighborhood, and also the best way to get to the sites. Her team is equally competent, friendly and wonderful! It was like home and we would absolutely love to stay... More

We stayed for five nights and could have easily stayed five more. Perched on one of the lower hills of Santa Teresa (which means it's closer to central Rio than most other B&Bs in Santa Teresa), but at a welcome remove from the noise of the urban concrete jungle below. We had been staying in Copacabana before and were feeling... More
