An ideal balance between functionality, comfort and good vibes makes this the perfect place to stay in Santa Teresa. The rooms are clean, simple and tasteful, and the common areas are both groovy and elegant. Their guest kitchen is clean and well-equipped, and there's always a hammock to read or rest in. The people who work there are warm treasures... More

You could come to Rio, never leave the pousada, and still have a great trip. It's the best place ever...super relaxed, breezy, interesting, bohemian, special, historic, beautiful, etc. The staff is the best part; they're so sweet and fun and make you feel really at home. Really really helpful and laid back. I felt like a queen. The room prices... More

True story: We found and booked this Pousada at the last minute, after growing tired of the very upscale accommodations at the Rio Sheraton. We wanted to feel once again like we were in a more unique to Brazil type of place and were very happy to stay at Casa Aurea. The place is a former colonial home and you... 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.
