Santa Teresa is the place to be, the little Streets in the mountain are so cute. Carlos, the receptionist has been very helpful. Giving us great advices everyday. Wifi doesn't work very... More

The view is magic! We recommend The Villa to everyone! Great service. It felt like being home but far away in a little paradise. When we`re going to Rio De Janeiro next time we`ll stay at The Villa. The staff helps you with all your questions and call a taxi and tell the taxi driver where to go. Taxi is... More

This hotel was overall just great! The staff in the reception gave us the best tips for restaurants and bars. Great view from the pool (both sugar loaf and Christo). Nice and clean room and great location in Santa Teresa.

Villa Rio is like a sanctuary. It's location is superb in the hills of Santa Teresa you feel so relaxed after returning from a long day of site seeing. We stayed in the master suite which was worth every penny but very reasonable in price. Staff was very accommodating and the pool is just the right size to escape the... More

I read some disparaging reports of this place before arriving so was a little nervous. But honestly, there was no need. We arrived late at night and were met by a hotel driver - always a good idea - and even though we had to take a little detour due to a demonstration we never felt uneasy. (And I've travelled...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at The Villa Rio. The hotel staff helped with everything from directions to breaking a 100 real bill (getting change is an issue in Rio) to arranging for someone to deliver medicine from the local pharmacy when my partner caught a cold. All of this was in addition to the beautiful venue, the pool, the... More

The hotel is quite a way out from the centre and taxis frequently got lost, both Uber and regular city cabs or they went the wrong way even on short trips. Our average price to Ipanema was about R$45 and a 20 to 25 minute trip. Having said that the exchange rate was good so this was about £6. The... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. I was looking for a hotel that was a bit out of the way of the center with gorgeous views and I got it!
