We spent a special occasion evening at Santa Teresa Hotel and were very happy with our stay. The hotel upgraded us to a nicer room (based on availability) and surprised us with romantic decor, a bottle of champagne and a fruit platter. The room was very comfortable. Fabriola took wonderful care of us at breakfast and it was one of the better breakfasts I've had in Rio. The grounds and pool area were beautiful and relaxing.

Hotel's Favorite
We visited Rio de Janeiro for just over a week in mid May 2023 and stayed at Santa Teresa MGallery for the entirety of our stay - I could not recommend this hotel enough! It is definitely one of the most luxurious and stylish places that we've had the pleasure to stay at. You need a good couple of hours just to take in the beautiful decor alone! Our stay ended up being extra special when my boyfriend proposed to me at the Jardim Botânico(!) and after we shared the news with the hotel, they proceeded to pull out all the stops for us by providing us with champagne and upgrading our room to one with a view of Christ the Redeemer! The rooms themselves are so plush - giant beds, nice bath tubs, mini bars and views over the beautiful tropical grounds. The pool bar area is also a gorgeous place to watch the sunset from! Breakfast and dinner were always a lush and relaxing affair at Tereze restaurant. The selection of fruits, yoghurts, pastries, hot food and amazing coffee at breakfast each morning were a delight - this is accompanied by a stunning view across the city from up in the Santa Teresa hills. The staff could not have been more attentive - everyone we encountered was so friendly. I would like to give particular thanks to Victor and Thayna, who made us feel extra special and welcome. Victor was fantastic at helping us to buy tickets to a Fluminese football match - one of our favourite experiences in Rio! Overall, our stay at Santa Teresa MGallery was fabulous and unforgettable!

A true gem in Rio! Being in the midst of Santa Teresa + the decor, views and vibe of the hotel makes you instantly feel like you’re part of the culture. The rooms are full of personality and the staff is so friendly. Truly one of the best experiences I’ve had.

Da Nang, Vietnam26 contributions
As a former hotel manager, I’m fussy about where I stay. I chose the ST MGallery because I am not into the crowds and noise that are characteristic of beach properties, and it was a great decision. The reception staff is among the best I’ve encountered in recent memory. I must single out Clarissa, Guillermo, Pedro and Bruno for going the extra mile assisting me with various arrangements and requests. The GM Sophie is perfect for her role as overall host. The staff member who stood out the most was Everton Goncalves, server in the restaurant. He heats coffee cups with hot water to keep beverages hot in the air conditioned environment, not because someone trained or asked him to, but because he truly cares about his guests’ experience. His positive attitude and service ethic are extraordinary. The pool is a welcome respite after a day of sightseeing in sweltering Rio. The rooms are very comfortable, particularly the bed and pillows, large shower and very effective air conditioning. If I had to make any recommendation, it would be for the restaurant to rotate the items on their breakfast buffet each day. They were the same for all five days of my stay.

Excellent food and excellent service and nice view. The portions are not huge but are enough for a single person. Overall it is a bit expensive but the prices are within the expected range for such food quality. Despite the cost, I highly recommend.

Highly recommend.! The ambience, the scent, the spa, Resturant, breakfast, service, hospitality, bed and shower ALL Amazing. This hotel will be my home away from home while traveling to Rio. Breakfast buffet was fresh with a nice variety and well organized. There is also a complimentary Ala Carte menu and mimosas. I enjoyed my few days stay here relaxing before the carnival activities began. I got an amazing massage and relaxed in the steam room and quiet room at the spa. Beautiful rooftop swimming pool and bar. Well maintained garden with lots of flowers. What more can a women who lives a soft and luxurious lifestyle ask for! The neighborhood was hilly (great for exercise) safe and clean. You will not be disappointed. Special thanks to all the hosts, housekeeping, and reception especially Gilliuam and Aroldo. They made my stay even more special and pleasant.
