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

One month after I got a confirmation of booking via hotels.com the hotel contacted me to double the price. Reason= world cup is on at time of my stay. 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 would like to thank you by our casa aurea team for taking the time to write us a feedback. Usually a feedback, is to give inspiration to maintain the service good. And your words made us realize that it is time for changes. So we got the solution to separate some special smoking areas, so we can compromise with... 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

This place is really nice - set in the hilly surrounds and cobbled streets of Santa Teresa, it is a very welcoming hotel with an exceptional ambience and atmosphere. My room was clean, comfortable and nicely-furnished, with a good bed with mosquito net,a desk and en suite bathroom. Don't expect TVs, minibars, etc, it's not that kind of hotel. I... More

At Casa Aurea, there is a huge gap between what is promised and what is delivered, especially with respect to what is listed on Tripadvisor. Casa Aurea is a marginal lodging at best, appropriate perhaps for large youth groups and/or those on an extreme budget. It is totally inappropriate for senior citizens with heavy luggage due to the requirement to... More

We would like to clarify some topics mentioned in this review. The stairs leading to the suites have 11 degrees of official size and in the last 11 years of operation of Casa Aurea there was never any comments about it. Still, we decided to put 2 handrails to improve safety for older people. In Brazil, almost all the showers... More
