I stayed at Rio Palazzo early in 2013 and was delighted to have found this hidden gem in Santa Teresa and a relaxed, attentive host in Adam. Rio Palazzo is located in a tranquil part of the city, long renowned for its quirky architecture and the views of Corcavado from my newly refurbished room echoed the ambience. Adam went out of his way to help me get my local phone card working and produced a delicious breakfast that was eaten by the assembled guests over a leisurely and interesting conversation. Don't hesitate to visit Rio Palazzo — you have a treat in store.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Rio Palazzo is located in an extravagant, uniquely adorned, colonial mansion sitting atop Rio's best neighborhood; Santa Teresa. Here you can experience the refreshing breeze coming off the Corcovado mountain meanwhile gazing out at views of Christ the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf mountain, Cosme Velho, Tijuca forest and Guanabara Bay. What truly makes Santa Teresa unique is its Carioca character, views, and convenient location that allows you to escape the hustle and bustle of the over packed tourist hubs. The character of our nearly hundred year old "mansion" is guaranteed to grab your attention with large quantities of tasteful Brazilian art, Asian rugs and antiques from all over the world. In addition to being surrounded by rain forest and beautiful mountains, our B&B is conveniently located near all the major tourist hotspots of Rio and public transportation can be easily accessed just seconds from our doorstep nearly 24 hours a day. Ipanema and Copacabana beaches are only 15 minutes away by taxi and can be easily reached via public transportation as well. The nearest Metro stop is only 5 minuets away, the easiest way to navigate the city. Lapa, the best place to experience the bohemian spirit of Rio is only 10 minutes away. Santa Teresa offers you peace, tranquility, and a romantic atmosphere without sacrificing the accessibility you desire to get a true "Carioca" experience. Also nearby is a variety of unique museums as well as a plethora of both fine dining and budget friendly restaurants. We provide for our guests breakfast, wireless internet, and cleaning services all free of charge. Fully equipped kitchen is also at your disposal anytime outside of breakfast hours. ... more less
