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

We stayed with Rob and Richard for 5 nights and enjoyed this delightful setting. The gardens are lovely with a small dipping pool. A highlight was the pet turtle who followed around lile a small dog. The location was good although you may want to take a cab up. We walked down and even walked to Sugarloaf Mountain . The... More

My friend and I stayed at O Veleiro for a week in October, having spent three weeks traveling elsewhere in Brazil. We couldn't have asked for a better end to our trip. Rob and Richard are the perfect hosts and couldn't have been more helpful, giving us loads of advice about what to see and how to make the most... More

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights. Probably like most first time visitors to Rio we initially had some reservations about staying anywhere other than a 'safe' beachfront hotel. Without a doubt we made the right choice. Apart from the most expensive hotels, those that are near the beaches look bland, functional and jaded. In contrast this is a... More

We really liked it here.The room was nice and clean and met our needs which was to sleep two adults and two children. There is a small pool which the children enjoyed as we had just had a four hour drive back from Paraty. They also liked the tortoise that lives in the garden and the marmosets that live in... More
