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.

This is a great place to stay in Rio. It is easy to get to the nice cafe's in Santa Teresa and to get to Centro and Lapa and the sights around these areas.

The staff is very friendly. "Superior" rooms are big and light, there is also a public terrace where you can eat and relax on the sun. The house is decorated by weird and funny self-made things and paintings of local artists. Santa Teresa and Lapa districts are nearby, so you have easy access to a lot of bars, cafes and... More

I had a very lovely stay. Safe and comfortable. This place is located just on top of the Selarón stairs. So the location is awesome. Going down the stairs you would meet the very local neighborhood of Lapa, walking to the right, Gloria, there is a nice market on Sunday mornings next to the Gloria subway station. Give it a...

The place is located in Lapa - famous for parties and the stairs (Escadria Selaron), about 10 mins of walking from the nearest metro station, so no problem going to the beach. The rooms and facilities are good for the price, but you also get an amazing view of the business district from the patio as a bonus. The staff... More

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.
