This place is situated in hills of Santa Teresa, its good area, very good area, actually, but near couple of favelas that you dont wanna visit. (And positive side: nice little walk and you reach Rios great party area number one, Lapa). All taxis dont wanna come here! We were told twice that they dont wanna took us in there, dependinding reasons we did not understand. Breakfast was excellent and its beautiful place where you enjoy it! Although if you pay 330 euros for night, you would think breakfast would arrive in seconds. Not here... Sometimes it tooks half an hour to get our brekkies done or something is missing - salt, jelly, coffee milk, depending the day. Room was high with ceiling, with old school bathrooms, shower and bathtube is there too.. You dont usually get TV or hair dryer, or minibar. You get only one soap, things are limited here. But of course you have the most important - air con. If you want ironing board, it is not there. But... There was construction site going on in place next to us and they started working at 7:00 clock - in the morning, couple meters from our window. Very loud... It was not that nice to woke up with sawing noice in the morning. And it continued until 8 pm. which we felt bad, that nobody told us about, before paying over 1800 euros for 6 nights. Bed is allright, but the blanket is... too... special. Its part of the decoration that is made by famous designer (beautiful!), but it feels like plastic. Let me tell one bizzarre small thing more: the shower gives you cold or hot water, nothing between. And we had two sinks, but either did function well enough. You could not wash your teeth without causing a flood... OVERPRICED, but somehow nice bed & breakfast place. And anyway something different if you are bored with hotel living - as we are, after 2,5 months travelling,
