A group of 4 of us had two rooms for 3 nights. The hotel staff was very gracious and helpful. I was very impressed by the interest they took in their guests plans for the day. There was always someone available during the included breakfast to help with advice as needed. The fresh juice was delicious at breakfast as well as made to order eggs, fresh bread, cheese, jam, etc. The rooms are comfortable with AC units. The shower got nice and hot.
The Santa Teresa neighborhood is at the top of a big hill. With the streetcar currently out of commission, the options for transportation are walking, cab, or other buses etc which replace the streetcar. The group I traveled with enjoy an adventure and walking, so no problem for us. I loved the neighborhood feeling and exploring the local bars, restaurants and winding streets. We went to the famous beaches Ipenema, Leblon, Copacabana by subway/cab which was easy. The subway stop Gloria is about a 10-15min walk downhill. Also the famous Celeron(sp?) Stairs are just a short walk away. You might even get to meet the artist and visit his studio. The stairs adorned with all sorts of tiles are amazing in person even if you have already see photos.
