We booked two nights because we wanted time to get over the jet-lag from NZ before joining a cruise, but this place was so delightful, and Rio so interesting that we wished that we had booked a couple of extra days so that we could have relaxed in the beautiful garden area, and seen more of the city instead of...

Right from the beginning, Rob and Richard made us feel at home. Their Bed and Breakfast is very clean and decorated very nice. The breakfast was abundant with fresh fruit, bread, juice, smoothies and more. The gardens are beautiful with many places to sit and relax. The wifi worked great in our room. I stayed with my daughter and we... More

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

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

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
