We stayed here for 4 nights and everything exceeded our expectations, which were high, given all the great reviews.Simple rooms, but unbelievable great service and delish breakfast. Would definitely recommend, especially if you want to explore a part of Rio other than ipanema and copacabana. A real gem!

We had read all the reviews about what an amazing place this was to stay in and it truly lives up to the hype. The staff is so helpful, the rooms are fairly basic but incredibly clean and the breakfast is just divine! It is a nice break from the chaos down in Ipanema and Copacabana. If you can, stay... More

We spent 4 nights at CCB and had a fantastic time. Dave and Sergio were extremely helpful. Sergio is the manager, is local, and speaks English fluently. He can help direct you to do whatever you want to do. Dave, being the American owner, also loves to help you find activities that interest you. Santa Teresa is a historic neighborhood... More

Casa Cool Beans is a very nice B&B located in a hilly and picturesque Santa Teresa neighborhood. Hosts David and Lance and Sergio were the friendliest and nicest hosts I've ever seen. They made sure we had a plan for a day, helped us book some attractions and were very warm and welcoming. Highly recommend staying at this B&B.

yes, Casa Cool Beans is in a cool historic neighborhood with romantic winding streets and a few run-down properties but definitely on the up and up. The neighborhood itself is different than what you may expect in Rio and it is full of character but this is not the reason for the high rating. These guys are seriously focused on... More

Great couple of days at Cool Beans. David, Lance and the team really go all out to help you make the most of the city. Eg; booking taxis, great recommendations on local bars and restaurants and organising day trips around the city! We only had two days here - wish we had a couple more. Oh and a seriously awesome...

I stayed at Casa Cool Beans for a week with a group of young American travelers in May, 2015, and I can't say enough good things about this B&B, but I'll try to highlight the best parts! Staff - The co-owners are two Americans, and the rest of the staff is Brazilian. Lance and David (owners) are able to answer... More

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

We are seniors who had a few days in Rio prior to a cruise. Having visited Rio before,and still having a little "oomph" we wanted an experience away from the hustle of the beaches... Through trip advisor,we found Casa Cool Beans....LUCKY US! All arrangements were easily done via email and the extra speedy responses of the staff. We were efficiently... More
