Want to get a feel for the real Rio rather than just the beaches? If your answer if yes then this B&B should be top on your list! The house is gorgeous and the Sugarloaf room is spectacular!!!!!! The breakfasts are delicious and the views and area of Santa Teresa very artsy and vibrant! I loved Rio and staying here... More

We had a very enjoyable 3 night stay in the Corcovardo room. The room was functional and sat within a stunning house. We received some great travel tips over a homemade breakfast. The only reason it is not a 5 rating is the floor in the room was a little dusty when we arrived.

Wow! It has been an amazing vacation in Brazil and specially in Rio at Guesthouse Bianca. The room was clean and perfect with a great view of the sugar loaf. The breakfast was so good every morning, served with a great smile from Guido, Francisco and their great staff. Thank you again guys for everything! You've made our trip cool... More

My husband and I reserved one of the smaller rooms (the Mango Room) for our honeymoon and we still felt like princes in that room. The villa and its grounds are carefully manicured and cared for by the owner, Guido, Allesandru, and the team of housekeepers, and from the moment you walk in, you feel like caring for the house...

Very friendly hosts that make you feel at home from the very first minute. The house itself, the nice rooms and the amazing views from the garden make this place the perfect location to relax after an exhausting day in the busy city. Breakfast is amazing and very social since all guests share a table. Santa Teresa is a very... More

Perfect - we stayed in the sugarloaf suite and the room was well appointed and spotless, with a lovely balcony and gorgeous views. The guesthouse is located in a nice area near good places to eat, just a 10 minute walk (easy downhill, harder uphill but moto taxis are available) from Gloria metro and a row of shops / taxis...

My wife and I stayed at Guesthouse Bianca for one night in March 2014. We transferred there after a booking with another guesthouse had partially fallen through. The link with GH Bianca was made for us by the owner of our previous hotel and was recommended by him as a place that was highly recommended on Trip Adviser. Before transferring... More

Wonderful place to stay: Beautifully restored period home, very clean, well organized. Lush gardens and porch with a breeze provide relaxation after long day touring Rio or enjoying beaches. Great views from upstairs. Santa Teresa is a trendy, bohemian community, with good restaurants, fabulous views of city. We never felt unsafe. Downside: it can be difficult to find taxi from... More

Maybe Santa Teresa is not so mad outside of Carnival week, but Guesthouse Bianca offered us a place to feel relaxed, secure and special. The guesthouse is perched on top of one of the cobbled hills, with lovely views of Sugar Loaf and the distant bays. The house itself if beautifully cared for, with polished parquet floors, high ceilings and... More

We enjoyed Rio and one of the main reasons is this beautiful place we stayed in. We did not want to leave after a few days because of how comfortable and relaxed we felt staying in such a splendid home. Our host Guido was kind and friendly. He even drove us to the nearest taxi place one rainy evening when... More
