This was a charming hotel with lovely rooms that were clean and spacious. The breakfast was delicious with many options including fresh fruits and the famous Brazilian cheese bread, freshly made. The hosts were helpful and made our stay very comfortable.

Very nice place, 10 minutes from SDU airport. Friendly staff, big rooms. The breakfast terrace is awesome, with a nice view of the city. Neighborhood is calm and has a couple of cool restaurants around. Not near the beaches, but definitely worth it!

We stayed in Castelinho 38 twice in January, in total for 5 nights. We had a great time there, stayed in 2 equally beautiful and clean rooms and really enjoyed to not stay in Copacabana or Ipanema but in a more quiet part of town. Santa Teresa has a cute little center with a couple of bars and restaurants and... More

Great boutique hotel with a lot of character. I loved the breakfast terrace overlooking the garden, with the city in the distance. The honesty bar (pour yourself a drink and log it in the book) was a great concept, making the bar available 24/7. This directly mirrored the honesty and hospitality of the staff. Olindo and Fernanda made multiple arrangements... More

Santa Teresa is a great spot up in the hills & yet still close to everything. It looks out over the neighbourhood with a lovely patio for breakfast. The service by Olindo the proprietor is exceptional. He is very kind & helpful. The only suggestion I have is that I think it would be wise that some guests may need... More
