Once in awhile one encounters the perfect combination of accommodation and host, or in the case of Guesthouse Bianca, hosts----Guido and Francisco. The two of us stayed at their guest house for a week of fabulous breakfasts (haven't eaten so much fruit in years) that I already miss. The price was reasonable. The location was great, up high with excellent... More

This Guesthouse is just beautiful. You can tell that Guido, the owner takes so much pride in it. The decor is divine and the garden is really beautiful. The room was really spacious and comfortable with a lovely view of the sugarloaf. Breakfast was fabulous and nothing was too much trouble. Guido was so helpful in giving us information on... More

Lovely rooms set in a beautiful house with peaceful secluded garden and breakfast terrace. The balcony and hammock belonging to the Sugar Loaf room were fabulous. Great location for strolling to the restaurants in Santa Teresa and only about 10mins walk down to Gloria metro station (although about 20mins back up hill!). The owner is very kind and helpful and... More

The very high ranking accorded to this property is well earned. We stayed for 11 days and were delighted with our selection of this pousada as well as the safe neighbourhood. Guido, the owner, is a very serene and hospitable presence and his two colleagues, are both extremely helpful, Francesco in terms of the local music scene and architecture and... More

This truly was a wondeul place to stay in Rio. Guido anf Francisco are charming people and extremely helpful, literally going out of their way to assist guests with whatever their various needs might be. The house is beautiful, an oasis in the middle of Sta Theresa, a vibrant and interesting area of Rio. The bedrooms, like the rest of... More

We'd decided to spend our first three nights in Brazil in the bohemian area Santa Theresa. From the Trip Advisor's review we choose the pousada Guesthous Bianca, which is located near the top of the hills, near a local cozy bar for a Capirinja pit-stop. There is also several restaurants in a 200m distance. The rooms in the pousada are... More

I stayed at the Guesthouse for five nights and had the opportunity to try out three of the rooms - they were each amazing - great views, comfortable beds, clean and well-equipped (power options for both types of plugs that work in Brazil was really helpful). Splurge for the unbelievable master suite - the bathroom is adorned in stained glass... More

We spent three nights at this pousada upon our arrival to Brazil after reading its recommendations on TripAdvisor. The pousada is located in Santa Teresa, a lively bohemian neighborhood situated on a hill and in a dead-end street, so fresh breeze and few traffic guaranteed. The subway station Glorià can be reached easily by a 10 minute walk downhill. By... More

Had a wonderful 3-day stay in August 2014. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed - and the views from our room (Sugarloaf Suite) were stunning. Our friend stayed in the Mango room and raved about the large en suite bathroom and the super effective air conditioning. (Can you tell we're from the US?) The location is great - away... More
