This place was a breath of fresh air after some overpriced and poor quality bed and breakfasts in Brazil and Argentina. Whilst the location on the surface might seem slightly off the beaten track, this is a little deceptive - the location gives you peace and quiet and a bus that connects you to the metro system, shops and restaurants...

Rio Palazzo is indeed a hidden gem up in Santa Teresa. If you enjoy homely atmosphere and company of nice people, this is the place for you. Don't expect any luxury, but cosy and clean rooms, fantastic view from the terrace and above all - very helpful and extremely nice hosts Adam and Paulo, you may be sure that you... More

Tucked away in the hills of Santa Teresa, overlooking the Silvestre Favela, with views of Pao de Acucar, Cosme Velho, and Cristo de Redentor, the Rio Palazzo is a romantic getaway from the hustle and bustle of Rio de Janeiro. Ambiance: The building is a classic Santa Teresa mansion transformed into a luxury boutique bed and breakfast. The common spaces... More

I was in Rio palazio for 2 weeks. This is a very small bad and breakfest with 5 rooms in different levels of comfort and price. I booked a standart room with a shared bathroom, however because a laxiury room was free I stayed in that beutifull room for my first week with no extra charge. Than I moved to... More

We spent three nights at Rio Palazzo with family, where we had the two rooms on the top floor. The view from the balcony outside one of the rooms was good and made it easy to see all the way to Pao de Acucar as well as up to Corcovado, and plenty of green space. First the positives: If you're... More

Rio de Janiero doesnt hold as such a memorable vacation if it werent for this hostile and the people there. It was such a homely, socially proactive vacation site that would be ideal for people that want to get the true feel for the social life of a normal Brazilian local. For a family of 4, not any one of... More

Stayed at the Rio Palazzo for 4 nights, the first stop on our honeymoon trip round Brazil. Adam and Paulo are great hosts, super-friendly and welcoming (they arranged for flowers and bubbly in our room on arrival and were able to offer advice on transport, places to go etc). The hotel itself is an incredible building, like something from a... More
