I agree with all the positive reviews posted here. I came here for my 65th and feel it was just right for me. I can think of little more to say, other than don´t forget to bring a book as there are plenty of spaces to chill out and have a quite read either inside or in Guido & Francisco´s... More

The property is really well maintained, a big, beautiful, charming house and very comfortable. Guido is just a fantastic host, and makes staying there as pleasant as possible. Location is pretty decent, probably a 10 minute downhill walk from the metro station. Breakfast is really great, the local shop does it the best, but it's also nice from the museum... More

Guido and Francisco were fantastic hosts. Very friendly with helpful tips for our stay on where to go and restaurants to eat at. We had an early transfer on our last day and they got up early especially to make breakfast for us. On that note, the breakfasts were superb. A wide spread with fresh eggs, fruit and bread. The...

Guesthouse Bianca is a slice of heaven in Santa Teresa to be treasured. Ideally located away from the hustle & noise of the beach areas, this wonderful B&B exceeded all of our lofty expectations. Guido and Francisco made us feel most welcome, and so helpful in all aspects of our three day stay! The house is magnificent and beautifully appointed.... More

We had been in Rio for a week and wanted to stay in Santa Teresa and found Guesthouse Bianca via TripAdvisor due to the good reviews. We were not disappointed. The house is beautiful, it has so much character and history that you could walk around for days and find new and amazing features to look at. Guido, Francisco and... More

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
