Lovely little B&B in a house in the hills of the Santa Teresa neighborhood. Caretakers are super nice and help with everything such as maps and tips for eating etc. Lovely breakfast with a few local fares, nice little garden with scenic view and birds. Soon rooms have shared bath with other rooms so make sure you check this while... More

Flavia is the best! The hotel is in a good area where you can go outside for drinking staying safe!There is a good common area on the hotel, with some tables and Flavia bought a small swimming pool which was a very good idea!

Flavia and staff are great and very friendly and knowledgeable, and can make you feel welcome in Rio easily. Nice rooms, good view, good wifi and other facilities and great and extensive breakfast. Nicely situated between Santa Teteaa and Lapa. I even had the luck to get upgraded immediately.. Will come back here for sure.

Great location, lovely rooms, and a nice little garden with a stunning view over the city. The best about this B&B is, however, the wonderful staff helping you in any way to make the best out of your stay in Rio. Thank you a lot, Rafael and Laura!

Cosy atmosphere, beautiful view at the city centre, very friendly staff, good breakfast. The street of the hotel is quiet and simple but safe. Very close to the Selaron steps, which is full of tourists throughout the day. Lapa with its nice bars and clubs is only 5 minutes walk. Metro to the beach is 10 minutes walk. The staff... More

The location might look dodgy but it is actually safe, right next to a famous landmark always filled with tourists. The place has a stunning view that you can enjoy during your delicious breakfast. It can be a bit noisy at times but that is the price to pay for being very centrally located, overviewing the whole pulsing city.

Staying in Santa Teresa

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors can now stroll through this area to view magnificent mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a former mansion turned museum which houses works by prominent Brazilian modern artists.
