A small, cozy hotel with great tropical forest, birds and a great view of Christ, the Redeemer. Pool, jacuzzi and massage in a peaceful corner of bustling Rio; and a team of people making sure you are well served; and all through a modest rate. I'll be back with my wife and friends.

Most brides in Rio go for the big hotels, but I was looking for something different and I'm happy I found it. Beautiful cozy hotel in a green area far from the noise. I even forgot I was in Rio. I had a really nice day together with my mom and bridesmaids, we got our hair and makeup done there... More

Clean and charming little hotel with the most helpful and accommodating staff. Raniere, the Hotel manager is fantastic and speaks fluently many languages. Great breakfast with plenty of natural choices and the views are just breathtaking!! Transportation to and from the hotel is easy and inexpensive. I wouldn't consider any other hotel when going to Rio de Janeiro. 5 STARS!!!!

This hotel is absolutely fabulous. It has six rooms and all have breathtaking views on Christ the redeemer and sugarloaf mountain. The rooms are very clean and look exactly as on the website, so no surprises at all. It is very close (5 minute taxi ride) to Ipanema and Leblon and also Copacabana (10 minutes taxi ride). If you're looking... More

We stayed here four nights in mid July in room 2 (which is on the top floor and has the best view out of all the rooms - except the owners area of course which is another level up). Room was very nice, awesome bed which was SO comfortable and nice bathroom. Looks like it does in the photos which... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the start of our honeymoon. We were happy with our room which was clean and had a lovely balcony with great views. There are no windows and a fair bit of traffic noise so be aware of this if you are a light sleeper. The staff were very helpful and the breakfasts were great... More
