Have no doubts about booking this place: it's great in all aspects! It took me around 3 hours and a bucket of sweat to walk from Santos Dumont airport to the Pousada with my huge backpack. I've got to admit that it was an exhausting but still interesting experience to try and find my way in an unknown city to... More

Pousada Casa Aurea is a charming and magic place in Santa Teresa. Quiteness and nature. Beautiful garden, birds, tropical flora. Smilling, gentle staff. Smilling, open-arm owners, Cornélio and Regina, organize with happiness this hidden treasure in Santa Teresa. A practical,brand new wide wood stairs take the guests to the rooms downstairs. Also important is that Casa Aurea is near to... More

But the world cup dates were kown when I booked in October 2013! I can cancel but hotels elsewhere in Rio have since filled up. Hotel has increased prices when client... More

When my taxi pulled up to the iron gate, I had no idea what would await me behind the walls of this guesthouse, barely visible from the cobblestone streets of charming Santa Teresa. As I entered, I climbed a few stone steps to a magical courtyard oasis of tropical plants and gorgeous wooden furniture, comfortable hammocks and cushioned benches, all... More

I found this to be a fantastic place from which to absorb brazillian culture, music, art, food and spiritually. I happily spent much time here instead of rushing out to see more sites of Rio. The location is perfect to wander around Santa Teresa from. Its clean, comfortable, fairly priced, relaxed, organised and informative.

I stayed for a weekend at Casa Aurea and I enjoyed it very much. It has a beautiful green patio where one can relax. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The only negative aspect is that the internet wifi connection was a bit unstable in the days I was there, but apart from this (temporary) problem, it's definitely a... More

My wife and I spent one full week in Rio de Janeiro in August at Casa Aurea in Santa Teresa and highly recommend it. Casa Aurea is a warm, relaxed and friendly place. The staff are interested, enterprising and helpful, but were never pushy or overbearing. There always seems to be at least one person who speaks English, and each... More

I stayed at Casa Aurea during the month of July for 10 days. The accommodation I stayed at was very modest and basic, although because it was located in a basement under the kitchen it was quite dark, with views of a construction zone, and no window in the bathroom (thus chilly in the evenings and morning). There was a... More

We stayed in July which is low season. Service is personal, pleasant and relaxed. Cornelius, the proprietor made us feel very much at home. We stayed in a room with shared bathroom, which was just outside our room and as it was quite quiet, we had it to ourselves. The pousada is in a great location in Santa Teresa, close... More
