Santa Teresa is a hidden gem of a 'village' just a short tram ride from central / downtown Rio - but off the beaten tourist track and in a very friendly neighbourhood. Casa Cool Beans, is a great B&B with superb service, rooms, food etc - its the hosts that make it, offering free advice every day. A very personal... More

Stayed here in Rio on the last few nights of our month long honeymoon. And when comparing it to other similarly priced B&Bs this is far superior. It's situated in a great neighbourhood, away from the craziness of Copacabana. A few small, good and reasonably prices restaurants and bars in walking distance. Also, a more plush Santa Teresa Hotel is... More

My friend and I had an amazing time at Casa Cool Beans - it's a beautiful property, very clean and well maintained. Everyone was extremely helpful and we really enjoyed our stay there. One thing I would add is a kettle in the kitchen area which you could use throughout the day - I had a bit of a tea... More

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
