This is actually quite funny. We spend a carnival in this place and it is brilliant yet try coming back by taxi at 4-5am:) You say Santa Theresa and they kick you out, You dont say ..and as soon as they realize whey they are going they still kick you out. Not sure why it is. Some comment it is bad for taxi suspension, others crime level in ST or just no trips back and a long trip up the hill. Anyway if you are not too bothered this is the one of THE BEST places I have stayed in. Really chilled and relaxed atmosphere thanks to Adam - the host. The interior is like a home taken out of the 70's - with lots of art in it. Not like a hostel - a real home. And the views - breath taking. Even if you can not make it to Rio Pallazzo if staying in Rio - deinetly recomend santa teresa district!!!
- 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
