This is a very nice place located in, in my opinion, the most charming and beautiful area of Rio, Santa Teresa. The staff is very nice and helpful and the rooms cosy and clean. I also like their environmental policy. My only complain and reason for not giving 5 stars is the breakfast. It was the most boring we have... More

Had a wonderful stay at Casalegre. Daniel and other staff members were great, accommodating and extremely informative. The villa is located quite centrally in Santa Teresa. A great view can be experienced just a short walking distance away. Great restaurants in the neighborhood. If you like to chill away from Rio's hustle and bustle, this is ideal. Also ease of...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. Santa Teresa is a charming neighbourhood and this is a charming hotel. The staff was very friendly. Our room was small-ish (from what I saw they all are), but nicely decorated and comfortable. The breakfast was good. As the hotel is small, the whole stay felt a bit like staying at... More

Where the old center Rio still exists and lives.. much to rediscover on the neigborhood every time.. a painter.. a poet .. a samba.. Those ever-changing natural juices for breakfast.. where to stay all day no rush.. perfect return from a day on the beach.. easy.. Where you can catch up your readings and even start writting a book for... More

Anyone planning a trip to Rio de Janeiro needs to start their trip in Santa Teresa and stay at Casalegre Art Vila. The staff welcome you and make you feel like this is your home. I was in Room 204 with the glass floor, it is one of the coolest features I've seen, especially when the light is on downstairs... More

The famous Calasegre art vila is the first choice for your accommodation in Rio de Janeiro while you choose to stay at the bohemian part of the city, in Santa Teresa. Comfortable room, delicious breakfast, very helpful staff. We highly recommended, for sure it worth it to pay a bit more but to stay like your home in a place... More

Very nice characteristic house with high ceiling rooms in Santa Teresa. Great, cool and relaxed guys who are very helpful. They speak their languages very well. Breakfast not special, but OK.

On the tram line (but the tram has been suspended for safety reasons) charming area. Loved the outdoor eating and the 'honesty bar' we had a room with shower and it was a little spartan but perfectly adequate. The staff were so friendly. Had a great time in Rio. This place had character.

The only good thing about this place is the very friendly staff. The rest is pretty awful and does not appear to know what it is trying to be. It is really a backpacker hostel but is trying to promote itself as something much grander. We had not realised when we booked our flights that it was carnival time and... More

We've much appreciated the review as we are always willing to improve our services and facilities. As they said, it was Carnival and they couldn't find the expected place for their vacation. It is normal that the prices double during National holidays and we adjust our rates only during New Year and Carnival. A lot has been improved in the... More
