We arrived late at night at the Quinta Azul after a long flight from the UK. We received a warm welcome from the staff, who were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The hotel has a cosy and relaxed feel, although it is well located in the busy and trendy Sta.Teresa district of Rio. It is set down a hillside off the main road, so noise isn't a problem. Although the trams are not running at the moment, it is a fairly easy walk downhill to the Gloria metro station from where you can get to most of Rio. It is possible to walk to the downtown area, although the walk back, mostly uphill, is a bit of a slog.
The hotel is well maintained, although the bedrooms are perhaps a little basic (a bedside light on both sides of the double bed would be helpful). The beakfasts on the terrace were good quality, with lots of excellent fresh fruit on offer.
I would recommend the Quinta Azul as a good and safe base to explore amazing Rio.
