The Atelier is really beautiful. Cozy, like a farm (for most who like this kind of environment). Stayed at the attachment standard room (called master) with a nice space, bathroom, a balcony and park space. Don't try this one cuz the wifi connection doesn't work. If you are traveling on business it will be a thing. And the breakfast it's awful: not much of a diversity of things like breads, fruits or something else. If you like eggs you need find someone to make it. Imagine bacon.

This Hotel is on the first sight good, but…. There is Internet in all rooms and suites, but… It does not work every time and in some rooms or suites it doesn’t work at all. There is a restaurant, beautiful and big… around 10 tables, but if there are two tables occupied, you wait one hour for the food About the restaurant, 40 to 50 Reais for a small plate, expensive drinks… 5 stars hotel in Rio de Janeiro are cheaper To enter in your room, you have an access card. However, every six hours it loses the information and you have to go to the reception. Workers or ok, but not prepares and not friendly. I asked to speak with the owner, but without success. The rooms are ok. The Suites are big and a big bathroom, but.. again.. the wall is gray/mold of infiltration The garden is big and a lot of nature.. but no cleaning or taking care.. If it rains, you can not reach with small cars the hotel. Ping pong table without balls to play. Soccer table was broken too. Rooms or Suites can be really moist and wet with the smell

We booked and confirmed this hotel in June (six months ahead), with a credit card, this hotel for New Year's Eve. It's so busy that time of the year and we wanted to secure something. We received an email on the 29th of December letting us know that the "hotel had cancelled our reservation" with no reason. We called them right away and they said that their reservations department was closed (it was about 4pm during the week) and they just couldn't help us. I was shocked. We have traveled all over the world and have never had anything like this happen to us. How rude and unprofessional. Clearly they got a better offer, but they left a party of 5 people with no place to stay in the Rio area on New Years Eve as all rooms were booked. We ended up staying more than an hour west of the city in a generic hotel. Shame them.

The hotel is inside a woods like location which makes it very peaceful and relaxing. My room was outside in a chalet. The room was very large and the bathroom had a jacuzzi big enough for two. It is however a bit far from the attractions in the city and trips by taxi adds up. One annoying thing is that everytime you solicit a cab, the hotel charges you for it, so make sure to get the taxi driver's phone number and call him yourself. The service is a bit rough around the egdes but seemed to me that people wanted genuinelly to help. The restaurant at the hotel is usually not prepared to serve everything in the menu, so it's better to eat out.

Atelier Molinaro Boutique Hotel was a wonderful find. We found it on Trip Advisor and booked it through Booking.Com. It is located in the hilly outskirts of town, about 5 to 10 minutes out of the center of Petropolis. We had room #1, a large Master Suite that had a larger-than-King sized bed plus a separate small sitting room that would have had space for two more people (kids). The room opened onto a patio to the lovely garden. Breakfast was delicious and included. WiFi and parking are free. The only problem we had was FINDING it. We rented a car at the Rio airport and had no problem at all getting to the city center of Petropolis. There our problems became evident. First, our Yahoo Maps directions were useless – we forgot to get them in Kilometers and our “miles” did us no good. Furthermore, there appear to be only TWO street signs in the entire of Petropolis so our street name turn-by-turn were totally useless, too. Thank goodness for the local McDonalds on Rua do Imperador (not to be confused with the only other street name we saw – Rua da Imperatriz, which intersects it!). We went into the McDonalds and one woman called the B&B and got directions then the young man who spoke a bit of English, translated and drew us a map. We never would have found it on our own as we do not speak Portugese and neither did the man on duty at the B&B (they do have several English speakers there during the day). So – if you find yourself lost in Petropolis looking for Atelier… head towards the Cathedral, where you will pass it on your left, then make a left when the street stops. This will take you out of town towards Itaipava. Follow the signs for Itaipava for a few miles. On the way you will pass a police station on the left and go over two small bridges (the town has a creek running through most of the city and just about all the streets are one-way streets. ) Just past the second bridge, be on the lookout for a bus stop and a small sign on the right that has the hotel name. Head up this small hill and you’ll find it. It is worth it!
