coming to this place was awesome. Had incredible details and directions from the emails and making each step easy to find this place. Clean, and very restful stay. They are close to or centrally located between the two main attractions. Christ the Redeemer and Sugarloaf. It a long walk up the cobblestone hill but with the staircase short cuts, it... More

O Veleiro feels like a little enchanting bubble in the heat and the speed of Rio de Janeiro. In this very relaxing and calm neighborhood, we found the rest we needed after days of walking the city. The neighborhood is absolutely safe, there is clearly no doubt about that. All the streets are lightened up at night and you don't... More

This B&B is run by two very nice and helpful hosts, Rob & Richard. They really make you feel at home and know a lot about stuff going on in Rio that are not part of the standard tourist attractions, such as rehearsals at the Sambadrome, hippie fairs, etc. They also offered us a very late check-out so we could...

O Veileiro is a very nice and green B&B. All the 'rooms' are situated at a really nice garden with swimming pool. In front of our room there were three hammocks wich was verry relaxing. We had breakfast every morning wich was very good and had all kinds of fresh fruit and juices. The room was very good and clean.... More

The hosts, Richard and Rob, were friendly, sociable and very helpful. The room was comfortable, clean and sizeable. Breakfast was good. The location was good with fairly easy access to an area with restaurants and shops. Taxis are a good idea to use as the property is up a steep hill, and Rob/Richard have printed directions to use, along with... More

A friend and I stayed at O Veleiro for 11 days in October. It is a wooded haven above the streets of Botafogo (a great community that is full of culture and not tourists). The rooms and large terrace are very welcoming, as are the hosts Rob and Richard. They were really there was us, making recommendations and taking us... More

We found O Veleiro Bed and Breakfast based on a Internet recommendation and would say the recommendation was an understatement. The accommodations were comfortable and offered private bathrooms for all the guests. It was within a 25 minute walk to the metro and the sugarloaf. The staircase was steep but the views of the city were spectacular making it a... More

We stayed at O Veleiro Bed and Breakfast for 5 days. The location is excellent, its just tucked out the way so that you can relax however with a 5-10 minute walk (using the steps shortcut) you can be right in the middle of Botafogo with easy access to buses, taxis and the metro and therefore all attractions such as...

Richard and Rob were great hosts, providing maps and tips to restaurants, the metro, ATMs, and beaches.I loved this place, it was like living in a treehouse! Rooms were clean, neat with beautiful furnishings. After site seeing, and going to the beach it was so wonderful to come back to the treehouse as an oasis. Breakfast each day was different.... More

Its 'bijou', clean, quiet, stylish and very good value. Ideally placed to explore the key attractions of southern Rio - Ipanema, Copacabana and Leblon beaches, the breath-taking Sugarloaf Mountain and of course the hugely impressive Christ the Redeemer statue. O Veleiro is tucked away on a residential wooded hillside accessed by a quaint cobbled street and Rob & Richard are... More
