We stayed 3 nights in this cosy and comfortable guesthouse. Guido, our host, was very helpful and spoke excellent English. The location was very convenient - close to Gloria metro station. The house is quite large and we had excellent views of the city of Rio. We highly reccomend this guesthouse.

What a lovely place! We'd booked the Sugarloaf room (only available through their website), and it's the best, as it has a little balcony looking directly out on to Pao de Azcuar mountain, with a great sunrise with spectacular colours (listen out for the chichiwee birds!) The hosts are so, so kind, and really made the stay special. Only drawbacks,... More

I must say that I was pleasantly surprised with this guest house. Besides the place being awesome and the view of our room outstanding, everything worked! The owners spoke English very well (which was big help since my husband is American) and they were very helpful too (calling taxi companies for us, recommending places to go, etc). The place is...

Great place to stay! Friendly owner, beautiful garden, good breakfast, wlan available! Only little drawback: matress seemed to be a bit old and worn down. Little investment here would add value. All in all: Recommended!

Ideal guesthose to stay in Santa Teresa: you really feel like staying and living in the Santa Teresa neighbourhood in a house that was beautifully renovated and contains the grandeur that many houses in Santa Teresa have had in the past. Although some houses in that neighbourhood are decayed a bit, this makes the heart and soul of Santa Teresa... More

We had a wonderful time staying at this guesthouse. The rooms are beautifully decorated, the hosts are excellent giving good information about all you want to know. We planned to stay only two nights, but ended up staying there our whole Rio-time (5 days). We were lucky not to come in high season so we book extra nights! Santa Theresa... More

Looking for 1 night stay, we saw availability at the guesthouse site & booking.com and made the reservation at the guesthouse site. More than 2 days after making the reservation, we got an email from Guido (owner) informing us that there was an error in the hotel site & at booking.com (2 nights minimum stay), asking us what we would...

Guido and his team made us feel so welcome and went out of their way to make our stay more enjoyable. We had prepared badly for Rio and Guido baled us out, thank you ! Our room had a superb balcony view across the water to Sugarloaf.The breakfasts were substantially memorable .

We were very much looking forward to staying here after reading so many positive reviews. However we thought it was an OK stay rather amazing. The location is lovely, in Santa Teresa with a great view. The house itself is beautiful. We stayed in the sugarloaf room. The bed was poor with basic sheets. The shower was a bit rubbish-... More

Staying in Santa Teresa

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors can now stroll through this area to view magnificent mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a former mansion turned museum which houses works by prominent Brazilian modern artists.
