I booked a room at this hotel, however, my plans changed so I had to cancel. Despite having a 100% refund policy, the property HAS NOT refunded my my deposit. I have been waiting for aover 2 months, have had various email contacts with them stating that they are trying to give me my deposit back, but still nothing. I... More

The place is located in an old villa on the outskirts of central Rio de Janeiro, located in a quiet residential neighbourhood. It can be quite difficult to find, so try and get good directions in advance. The rooms vary greatly in quality and size, so before booking, check out each option in detail. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast... More

We were quite disappointed because the road that leads to the hostel is closed for construction (and had been closed for at least half a year). This means that whenever you catch a taxi you have to walk the last 10-15 minutes. Being in Rio and Santa Teresa where crime rate is allegedly high, (see review on 22 Feb 2014... More

First off , no taxis would drop us off to Casa Mango Mango, I should have cancelled then, but we had a taxi drop us off as close as they would and walked a good quarter of a mile with our suitcases through a pretty unsafe area uphill instead. When I finally got there, I was told that they had... More

We spent two nights there last April. Nice location in Santa Teresa (said to be a bit dangerous but we didn't have any problems, even walking at night, besides, they can always arrange a taxi for you), close to Lapa. We had some problems with a reservation - from booking.com, with children staying for free, they said it was impossible... More

We lived in room 6 (1 night) and 5 (3 Nights) The rooms are really nice and cool. It's like to be home. Hot water, but no aircon, just a big fan. Not that great if the weather is around 35 C. Breakfast: come early, the kitchen lady is really slow to fill up the buffet. Otherwise the breakfast is... More

If I were just reviewing the hostel I would say it was great. Lovely pool, good breakfast, clean room and the staff were helpful and friendly, especially the new young guy. However I just couldn't recommend staying here because of the location. The road is very quiet due to roadworks and most taxis can't get up to the hostel. As... More

This beautiful property is worth a visit. The service could have been a little more personal but the room itself was absolutely glorious, the most spacious room that I've ever stayed in, fantastic shower, comfortable bed, the house has a wonderful quiet atmosphere, not for people wanting to mingle and party. A friend and I stayed here on our last... More

Casa located on a hilltop, surrounded by many tropical plants and trees, with a beautiful view over the down-town part of Rio. Amazing view in the night...and that would be the only good thing about that place. Poor service, cheap breakfasts (or no breakfast on the day that we were checking out), no water in the swimming pool, no air-condition... More

This could have been a nice stay. However, Rua Joaquim Murtinho Street is having extensive roadworks, so traffic is blocked at all times. The very expensive taxi I paid to get to Casa MangoMango from Santos Dumont airport could not reach the place. I had to wait until a government van came to pick up residents and drop me in... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Casa MangoMango is one of the few places to stay in Rio where you can relax in a magnificent colonial, tropical setting and yet be right next to the best nightlife and activities this marvelous city offers. Set in a quaint cobbled street in the old part of the city, Santa Teresa, Casa MangoMango offers easy access both to beaches, forest and city. The house is on the the hundred-year old tram route, only ten minutes from the city centre. The house itself is a huge colonial mansion, guarded by two magnificent bi-centenarian mango trees. Hence the name, Casa MangoMango! Resplendent with original features, the house has been restored and decorated in funky, upbeat designs to cater for every taste. And outside, in the lovely, tropical gardens, there’s a cool pool too! Built by Julia Lopes, a Brazilian novelist, journalist, playwright, and lecturer, the house hosted many a sarau for the literati of the early 20th century. Today we try to keep her spirit alive by inviting local artists to display their work and employing local musicians on our multi-lingual staff. Our musical and artistic events may well be some of your best holiday memories in Brazil. ... more   less
