Just back from a wonderful stay in and around Rio. We stayed at the Maze for a couple of nights in mid December and really enjoyed our time there. My partner and I turned up mid afternoon on a Saturday and were warmly ushered into a fantastic feijoada (loose translation "party") in an open room with a panoramic view of... More

Having stayed in The Maze (and lots of other places in Rio) for several times, I can say that it is one of the most amazing locations to spend a few days. The view is perfect, the people are very very friendly and its a place where you will always meet interesting people! When i came back in The Maze... More

First of all this place is not an 5 star acc. Typical guest house as one can find similarities everywhere. So no need to make your whole holiday there, a couple of days especially on the dates of the Bob and friends Jazz nights is OK, and different taste to stay and walk in the favelas which is not easy...

We are shocked by the previous review. Maybe The Maze is a bit like marmite - you either love it or you hate it and we LOVED it, as I'm sure most people will if you appreciate a relaxed homely B&B with stunning views and a taste of a real Rio neighbourhood. Bob and Malu are very chilled out hosts,... More

Unfortunately the organiser of our trip - a young guy- thought "The Maze" would be something "special" and "cosy" and made the big mistake to choose for it and book 3 nights for our group of about 20 persons: "normal adults". The Maze Inn..."Special " it was! The name "Inn" unworthy...It is a "Stable"! runned without any respect for the... More

This place is NOT for everyone. However, if you are considering it, you probably are the type of person that will be okay with some of things you will be dealing with if you stay here. First - the neighborhood is very SAFE. Do not worry about this. It is located in the Flamengo neighborhood - there are not really... More

"the maze" is a great place which offers a unique experience in rio. It is located in a friendly maze-like neighbourhood (tavares bastos) with touch of a village atmosphere. staying at this place (or visiting the jazz session hold every 1st friday, a month) will offer you a side of rio different from anything what you could usually get as...

A truly unique pousada in a unique location, run by the equally unique Bob and his family. Genuinely one of the highlights of our travels around Brazil. What Bob has achieved with this place is inspirational. If you can handle being a little distance from the overly touristic, overly expensive and rather souless (in my opinion) beach areas and looking... More
