We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Cool beans. Friends of ours had stayed here in November 2014 and highly recommended it and we were not disappointed. We would definitely recommend CCB to friends and family heading to Rio in the future. We spent three nights here before heading to Ilha Grande for 2 nights, we then stayed at Casa... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in Rio and loved it. They ask that you organise your transfer from the airport with them if you arrive late, which we were happy to. Being met by Sergio took away any hint of stress after our flight. We were shown to our room, offered a full welcome chat for the next morning... More

A really cool place to stay in Rio that reflects the cool vibe that is Santa Teresa. Upon arrival, we were met by Sergio, the manager who was super nice and helpful. Our room 7 was great and clean with awesome bathroom (my only complaint was that the floors weren't carpet but I'm weird for that according to my wife).... More

What an amazing place! - set in the gorgeous neighborhood of Santa Teresa. Amazing staff and invaluable advice from the owner Lance and manager Sergio. This B&B will be my absolute top tip for anyone wanting to visit Rio. There's nothing NOT to like. My own personal fear of dark waters made me think twice about going in the pool... More

We just spent a week at casa cool beans with my boyfriend and we really enjoyed our stay there ! Santa Teresa is a lovely neighbourhood, very cute with few nice restaurants, walkable distance to the tube. The house is charming with a nice area for breakfast and a swimming pool. The bedroom 3 is big, simple with a comfy... More

Great place, safe and lovely neighbourhood, very friendly staff. Absolutely recommended - we felt like true guests at this guesthouse. Our room, number 7, had a private terrace which is nice. But the common areas are also great since there are not many rooms. Go here and discover hospitality in Santa Teresa

There's nothing more to say that hasn't been said about this place. Amazing service, breakfast, advise, location and the coolest local bar I've been to in a long while just on the corner. Love Santa Teresa and Rio in general, and this is the perfect place to explore it from. If I'm ever lucky enough to return to Rio, I'll... More

My wife and I visited Rio in Feb 2015, staying 3 nights/ 4 days, as part of our 8 week honeymoon in latin America. We didn't have any time to waste, and so were every so pleased with our decision to stay at Casa Cool Beans! The guesthouse itself is a restored spanish villa, with all the modern creature comforts... More
