we had the chance to stay at casa cool bean Ipanema in march 2013. they have 6 appartments only 1 block from the Ipanema beach - litteraly 1 block. David and Lance gave us the full hospitality. They backup their reputation. David is a machine gun of information. The good thing, they know how to adjust based on your personality. They can go from expensive plan to just chill out in Rio - we really appreciated their advice. the room is really nice and quiet. Once again very nice location. Everything you need is one or 2 blocks away.

We loved staying at Casa Cool Beans. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts Lance and Sergio who helped us organise our excursions and made us feel really welcome. The best breakfasts in Brazil set us up for the day. Lovely just to relax in the gardens or by the pool away from the busy city if you needed to. Santa Teresa is an interesting and different place to stay in easy reach of everywhere using cheap and friendly cabs.

We arrived a few hours before check in but the room was ready and we even got breakfast (4 for a 3 night stay).

The guys organised our tours and recommended things we simply wouldn't have known about. Got a few free drinks in the nearest bar on them also.

Super clean rooms and helpful staff. It's a pity we didn't have more time in Rio. Santa Theresa is stunning and this place is too.

Thanks fellas. Made our honeymoon start off perfectly.

Great place to stay in Rio in the Bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
Very helpfull staff and owners. Excellent breakfast.
A place to come relax and enjoy Rio. Very quiet and no problem to get a good sleep.

Only suggestion would be to change the towels, as they did never dry in our room.

A big surprise after arriving in Rio, hidden in St Theresa is Casa Cool Beans. Two great guys and a dog welcome you in an oasis with peace, quiet en stylish B&B. Perfect beginning of our stay after a long trip.

We were only in Rio for two days and Lance and his crew were so helpful in our making the most of our stay. The weather was changeable and they were able to advise us of our best opportunities to see the sights and great tips on places we wouldn't of ordinarily thought to go. Santa Teresa was a charming change from the city's bustle with cobbled streets and bars and restaurants. We loved our little room- it was compact but with everything we needed plus great local artwork on the walls. Breakfast was served on the terrace in the mornings and we enjoyed the fresh fruit, baked goods and eggs with the opportunity to chat with other guests. We were treated like extended family and felt truly cared for. Well done CCB!

We spent about four nights at Casa Cool Beans during our first trip to Rio and loved it! It was a different choice to all the downtown hotels, but we were glad we chose to stay in Santa Teresa which is a quaint and charming neighbourhood with cobble-stone streets and lovely architecture. It is a bit of hike from downtown Rio, but cabs are inexpensive and quick so we didn't really mind. There are also some great little bars and cafes in the area and we enjoyed sussing those out during our stay.

The B&B itself is funky, colourful, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. We loved our large room with gorgeous dark wood floorboards, high ceilings and spacious en suite. The beds were comfortable which was much appreciated after a full day of exploration! Breakfast was a highlight and we enjoyed the eggs and fruit on offer every morning.

Lance and David were friendly and super-helpful hosts. We had a list of things we wanted to do and see and we'd chat to one of them each morning to work out the day's itinerary. They were really good at looking at what we wanted to do and then giving us suggestions of other things to do and see around the relevant areas. They were also really helpful with making reservations at restaurants and booking our cabs to and from the airport. We were going on to visit the Amazon and also the Pantanal and we were really touched that they told us to call them from anywhere in Brazil if we got stranded or needed any help.
