Was in Rio de Janeiro recently for this year’s Carnival and stayed in the Quinta Rosa Recidencias. Elena the manager who greeted us was really friendly and helpful and she spoke English!!
Our room, which was clean with modern style furniture, overlooked a lush garden and a small, longish bath-tub like swimming pool. Better still if you happen to get up early in the morning, as we did, you will be rewarded with a view of a beautiful sunrise over the distant Guanabara Bay with the Sugar Loaf Mountain and surrounding buildings silhouetted in the foreground.
Quinta Rosa is up the cobbled Rua Santa Catarina, in the Santa Teresa area. The underground Metro Gloria is not far away downhill and we found taxis inexpensive. We did walk up the slope a couple of times and once even braved going up on one of those motorbikes which we found awaiting passengers at the bottom of the road (seemed quite safe)!
Breakfast though was a climb further up the road to the sister hotel, Quinta Azul. However the fare, including fresh fruit juices, made going the extra distance worthwhile. Other unexpected pluses were the free WiFi and complimentary drinks.
All in all we were very happy with our accommodation and with the service.
