Well located on a lit up street a short walk from everything, a large common space with hammocks to relax in, sculptures everywhere, a kitchen for common use. The staff was friendly and helpful, gave us some good tips to enjoy rio night life (basically avoid the tourist... More

True story: We found and booked this Pousada at the last minute, after growing tired of the very upscale accommodations at the Rio Sheraton. We wanted to feel once again like we were in a more unique to Brazil type of place and were very happy to stay at Casa Aurea. The place is a former colonial home and you... More

Absolutely a fantastic experience staying here during my recent stay in Rio. The staff was more than willing to help me with any questions during my stay. The place felt very natural and really made me feel apart of the culture in Rio. I definitely recommend it here, you can't go wrong.

Hi Calon, We always say that the best of our Pousada is the environment. We have been here for 10 years and we are still in love with our patio, our garden and our view of the best neighborhood of Santa Teresa. Thanks for your review, you are always welcome :) More

I visited Rio this past February for Carnaval and had the most amazing experience at this pousada. The owners are sweethearts; kind, caring and fun! The staff follows suit and is extremely helpful and knowledgeable about everything going on in Rio. As you can imagine, trying to navigate the city during carnaval can be challenging, but they made it happen... More

we came here and spent 9 nights for Carnaval The location: nice street, safe enough (even at night) as long as you take normal precautions. staff good at calling taxi's for you if need be. probably a 5-8min walk to the main part of Santa Tereza. lots of up and down and cobblestones -- may not be the best area...

We planned a trip to Brazil to experience the Carnival. We looked for a place close to everywhere- beaches, forests, and favelas. Casa Aurea the posada (B&B) in Santa Teresa was the best location for us as it met our requirements and was not too crowded. Santa Teresa is a small town on top of the hill with spectacular view...
