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

Thank you so much Guido and Francisco for making the first part of our honeymoon so wonderful. Your guesthouse is in a beautiful quiet location, is tastefully decorated, and you went out of your way to ensure that we had a lovely stay. Such a delicious breakfast! Such a lovely stay!

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
