Stayed here for our last night after two weeks in Rio - honestly the best view anywhere. The rooftop terrace is lovely, the location is quiet, the staff are really friendly and helpful. Only negative is it is hard to find, we were lucky to have a helpful taxi driver but it would be worth printing out a map with... More

This place was glorious. After a 30 hour journey I would have taken a nap right there on top of my suitcase in the middle of Rio but when I reached Casa 579 all I could do was stare at the incredible view from our room's balcony. The room was clean and spacious, having a hammock to relax in and... More

Enjoyed my stay here. There's a beautiful view of downtown rio on both sides of the road, and there's a magnificent balcony upstairs. The breakfast was really good, with plenty of freshly-made fruit juices and a tasty cake. Transport to the centre is actually pretty good, using cheap buses and the metro. The staff were all very interesting, most of... More

Room was clean and comfortable. Friendly informative staff. Stunning views over Rio from our balcony- from Christ Redeemer all the way to Sugarloaf mountain. Downside was that the shower was often luke warm as opposed to hot.
