This is one of the best places I have stayed. Very clean and tidy and had everything I needed. As this is my first time in Brazil, Rob and Richard were more than happy to help in anyway they could. The breakfast offered a large choice of food as well. I also took the Highlights of Rio tour offered by... More

My friends and I stayed at O Veliero our first night of what is a four week stay in Brazil. We will be returning to O Veleiro for Carnival on Feb. 13. We are most eager to return to Rob and Richard's exemplary B&B. Everything is outstanding. The house is beautiful. One can easily see the work they have pit... More

Staying at O Veleiro is akin to staying with friends, which is a comfortable place to be in a place you may not have figured out yet. My husband and I took our honeymoon here and it was more than delightful. We got the friendly shared experience of a hostel but with much better accommodations. Rob and Richard are on... More

My stay at O Valeiro couldn't have been more lovely. Rob, Richard & friends were the perfect hosts, warm, friendly and so so helpful. The place itself was stunning and unique, my room was really comfortable, taking a refreshing evening dip in the pool and then laying in the hammock taking in the views were a true highlights and the...

This is a great place, rooms are comfortable and cool. Breakfast was of high quality and local. There is a great garden terrace area with a pool and great views of Rio. The pets make it a complete family home. We nearly stole Felicia the cat. Rob and Richard give great tourist advice that lets you see the real Rio... More

I stayed at O Veleiro for Rock in Rio on September of 2013. It's a lovely place with a kind and dedicated staff. They will promptly give you tips of restaurants, places to visit and attractions. There is a beautiful and lovely garden with a friendly cute tortoise, and the view in Botafogo neighborhood is amazing! It's a strategical place... More

O'Valerio is a gem of a place to stay, lovely and peaceful but very convenient for major tourist attractions. The building is full of character, the gardens gorgeous - tortoise and all! Excellent breakfasts, and all in a very relaxed atmosphere. Best of all, the owners, Rob and Richard, are two of the nicest guys you'll meet, and will give... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the O Veleiro Bed and Breakfast for 3 days the first week of Dec. It was a wonderful way to end 2.5 months of travel. We loved the location on top of a hill in a wonderful tropical setting. Our large, charming room was cozy and clean and the welcome drink was refreshing.... More

I spent just one night at the b&b, but it was enough to make me fall in love with Rio and with 'O Veleiro'. The rooms are very nice and comfortables, the garden is astonishing and the position is perfect, both silent and close to the city centre. Our guests were so nice and lovely, the breakfast very rich and... More

O Veleiro is a delightful b&b, very friendly and with the most caring hospitality from Rob and Richard. It's on a green hillside in a quiet suburban location. Yes you have to walk up the hill a bit or catch a cab, but it's not far to Botafogo from where you can get to any part of Rio easily. It's... More
