My daughter and I started our 3 week trip here with the New year's festival and spent 5 nights here. Baron Garden is a truly welcoming Bed & Breakfast that make you feel very much at home. Our hostess Iaci was very welcoming, patient, and helpful. She speaks excellent English and was extremely helpful in assisting us to book our next stop. The staff is very friendly & helpful. The 2 dogs there are friendly & good company.
The house has many charming & historical features and is kept clean at all times: the big community kitchen, pool area, balcony & garden seating with a great view being on top of a hill were most enjoyable. Rio is hot & humid in Jan, so the pool is perfect & refreshing. The rooms do not have AC, nor bug screens at the windows, at least ours didn’t, so be prepare with bug spray or a net. It does get nice breezes.
The walk up & down the hill is a bit of a trek especially on uneven pavement & cobblestones. We found that if you exit then Inn go left, a bit UP the hill, there is a set of stairs that cuts down the middle of the hill that is much easier to navigate.
The location is great. Very close to the metro and a central plaza with shopping, restaurants, & markets. Having use of the fridge and kitchen was great as we were often too tired to go back down and up the hill just for dinner. It also gave us a chance to compare notes with other travelers. The neighborhood felt quite safe. Also, down the hill on the main street, there are always police presence here & there.
I highly recommend Baron Gardens to all.
