Rio 180 is a beautiful, extremely chic boutique. I can not rave about this place enough. (Honestly, we enjoyed our stay so much that when we returned to Rio for our return flight we changed our a reservation from an Ipanema hotel so that we could stay at Rio 180 again.) The rooms are all different, and while I glimpsed one that looked rather small, the two rooms we stayed in were incredibly charming and a great size. The breakfast is great; the staff is incredibly helpful; the communal areas are beautiful. Only drawback is that sometimes it is a pain getting back at night, especially if you go out in Ipanema or Leblon. (Mainly b/c some cabs we took didn't know their way around Santa Teresa.) Overall, I highly recommend this hotel to anyone, especially young couples.
