Rooms with comfortable and stylish interior, enough place, with a look on Rio,,,, a beautiful garden with a pool, a very good breakfast, but most delighting... More

This was our first trip to Brazil and Casa Beleza was our first stop. We arranged in advance with Beleza for an airport pickup. Given Rio taxi rates and travel times, it was more than worthwhile. Even better, our driver (Junior) made us feel welcome from the beginning. The Beleza owners are a delightful couple, Bindu and Antoine. They made... More

We are so happy to have found Casa Beleza, a beautiful pousada in the charming Santa Teresa neighborhood. The grounds and our room were perfect (we stayed in the Orange room, which overlooks the pool on one side and the terrace on the other). Our host, Bindu, made us feel welcome from the beginning (with help from the affable, laid... More

We had 5 nights here in mid-May and of all the places we stayed at on our 6+ weeks around Sth America, Casa Beleza was our favourite - a lovely garden/small pool (see photo), comfortable room and very helpful hosts to give advice about their city, answer any questions, etc. So different to some of those huge, impersonal hotels (often...

We recently spent five nights in this B&B, and it is wonderful! We were picked up as arranged from the airport by Junior, who is friendly and speaks good English. Casa Beleza is a beautiful house in a lovely situation. It's secluded position out of the centre was for us a plus point. The hosts Antoine and Bindu are exceptionally... More

This hotel really made for an incredible stay in Rio. It is tucked away in the hills of the Santa Teresa neighborhood which is a charming, quiet area with a great selection of nearby restaurants and a great view of the city. The house is gorgeous and surrounded by nature. There is enough privacy that you feel as if you... More

This is the best bed and breakfast I've stayed in. The house is beautiful, the breakfast is delicious and the neighborhood is full of restaurants and bars. It has a bohemian vibe that I really liked. Bindu, the host, was really nice and helpful. My partner and I stayed at the blue room and it was very pleasent. It is... More

Great location, lovely rooms (we stayed in two different ones on two visits - both great but the Garden room was our favourite). Bindu is so incredibly helpful with ideas of what to do, where to go and how to get there.

The place is a little gem. It is an oasis situated in the nice Bohemian quarter of Santa Teresa with nice bars and restaurants at "safe" walking distance. After a day full of activities you relax in the cosy garden with pool. What really stands out is the friendliness of host Bindu. Trips (favelo tour, hang gliding trip) and guides/transport... More

We loved staying with Bindu and our family - the house and gardens are beautiful, Bindu is the perfect host - warm, welcoming and full of information but also giving us our own space. Sta Theresa is a great location - charming in the evenings with great places to eat and easy to get around, down to the centre etc.... More
