Casa da Carmen e do Fernando

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 31, 2012

It was really a pleasure to stay at such a beautiful place in Santa Tereza. It was so familar and everbody was very friendly. Especially for in arts interested people it´s the perfect place to stay. It´s colorful, full of paintings and other arts. Each room is individual. Nice music is playing the whole day and an inspiring smell is in the air. You look out of the window and you definately feel like beeing in holidays!
If you wake up in the morning you can smell fresh coffee. Breakfast is so delicious. Everything you need: exotic fruits, cheese, toast, cereals...
This B&B is well located. It´s close to a lot of bars and clubs where you feel brazilian life.

This is a very nice B&B in Santa Theresa. I was in the small room on top (3rd floor?) which has its own balcony with a great view over Rio de Janeiro. The stairs were pretty tight but the room was good. There is a private bathroom at the bottom of the stairs. The breakfast was delicious and the hosts very helpful. The place is situated on a hill which is not super convenient but quite walkable. There are also busses and of course cabs for the last stretch from the subway station. All in all highly recommended!

Room Tip: The room at the top is great but don't chose it if you are a heavy person or have lots of luggag...

This is a lovely B&B in a calm (and secure) location: very friendly staff speaking perfectly English, cozy and clean rooms (although quite small), nice terrace with a little pool to relax after your sight-seeing tour and with a great view on the city. The breakfast was delicious. The staff organized our transfer from/to the airport.
The hotel is centrally located and we felt very save in the area. You can even walk to many restaurants and tourist places closed by (Santa Theresa, Lapa,..). We would love to stay there again.

This is a really nice place to stay in Rio. The room was small enough but there was a very cool sitting room upstairs with a big open window which had a great view of the new part of the city. The only drawback of the place is that it is situated on a hill so there is a bit of a climb to reach it. Nonetheless, this is only a problem if you've luggage. The nearest Metro or bus is at most a 5/10 minute walk going down from the Casa, and maybe a bit more when you come back. Breakfast was very good. The area felt very safe and there were great restaurants nearby.

I stayed in this Casa for 3 nights in early May 2012. As a single female traveller it was just the right kind of place to stay. Evelina on reception spoke fluent English and was really kind and helpful. I didn't see much of Carmen or Fernando. My room was tiny and under the terrace but it was nice and clean and I got 10% discount because my AC wasn't working. It would have been fixed if I had remembered to report it and I was there over a weekend and the handy man is not on site at weekends.... I had my own shower room just along the outside corridor which was fine, but a word of warning if you are a very large person (which I am not!) - you will have a problem sitting on the toilet as it is so close to the wall...

The breakfasts were lovely and the general atmosphere of the place is really nice. Best of all was the great view from the terrace.

The restaurants are a bit of a walk away up into Santa Teresa which, as a single female, I wasn't too keen on at night when it got dark; but you've got to eat and I found I had no problems walking home.

I would return here to stay.

Room Tip: If you are a solo traveller then go for the cheapest room which is also the smallest and the only on...

We stayed a couple of days in the Casa da Carmen e do Fernando. We really enjoyed this house, its ambience and its vibe. The view is wonderful. The food is delicious.
The art on the walls is really something. There's always good music in the Casa.
Very romantic stay overall.
