« One of our all time favorite hotels. »

Beautiful, romantic getaway in the heart of charming Santa Theresa.

« A different side of Rio »

The hotel offers a great escape from the traditional perspective of Rio. I loved the charming hisotircal element to the hotel, the great staff and service and spectacular food at the Restaurant.

« Muito bom, mas esperava mais pelo preço. »

I expected more in terms of comfort and amenities in the bedroom. By the reservation time, the staff mentioned a bathtub, and there wasn't any upon my arrival. The breakfast was good, but far away from the best I've had. There was a film shooting in the hotel on the day I checked in. Nothing was done in terms of minimizing the impact of so many people walking around while we were trying to relax.

« Excellent service! »

The hotel is lovely but I particularly wanted to provide feedback on the service. The young woman who was in reception in the evenings on 25-26 June was especially helpful. My partner had a problem with his iPad connecting to WiFi and she put a lot of effort into resolving the problem.

« Excellent staff »

Excellent service offered by the staff. Spa packages has reasonable price and massages are awesome and are given by good quality professionals (regular spa area is under refurbishment and all services are being delivered in one of the rooms, but is very well prepared and comfortable). The main reason to score 8 is because all beverage is quite expensive, although some of the drinks at the bar are quite good. Restaurant is quite expensive as well for an "ok" food. Same price as many other good restaurants in city, that offered much better food. Room is very clean, has a very good size (superior room - entrance level) and has a high quality bedding. Would stay again with my wife in near future.

In the night of my stay, in the closer neighbourhood was having a shooting and this let me worry for over night.

« Boho Chic Relaxation »

Santa Teresa offers something that has gotten very rare in travelling. The hustle and bustle of a wold city while being quietly tucked away in old Rio. In a place where you feel more like a neighbour thank a tourist. If you stay more than two nights the locals start to recognise you and have a chat with you when you pass. It is the place to stay in this marvellous city.

« I and my wife agreed to say it was the best hotel experience in Rio. »

Really great experience in all aspects of our staying at Santa Teresa Hotel. Very kind staff, every detail clearly very well care, the room we got simply perfect, attonished landscape of the city, restaurants and bars with excellent services and brilliant menu. Breakfast is a chapter a part, delicious buffet with an warm ambiance. We were pampered naturally by the staff. We loved it!

« Beautiful relaxing ambience »

Relaxing surrounds, beautifully furnished. Friendly attentative staff. Gorgeous Bar & restaurant. Clean and earthy luxe rooms. A 5 star hotel without the fuss. Would love to return one day.

« Nice hotel with very limited service and bad management »

Very long and complicated check-in process Room wasn't cleaned, no beds made etc. after our first night. Instead we were woken in the morning by someone who needed to drop towels (don't know why at 10am?). After our stay I received a weird looking mail all in Portuguese which I was first told is my bill and only later that this is already paid. As said, nice hotel but pretty bad management and staff!

« A real place to just relax »

Staying at the hotel for only one end and week was wonderful. We were treated very well, everything was very well done, very carefully involved. On the plus side, if you were to make a single criticism it would be late check-in which is late while check-out is early.

« Beautiful hotel »

The hotel was beautiful! Thought the service was a little slow The lady at reception said she would find us a restaurant to eat when we arrived and didn’t. The restaurant food we had on our last dinner was not good and we couldn’t mention it to staff as no one could understand us and then the staff asked us for a cash tip. No menus by the pool or we may have ordered a few.l more cocktails and food. Other than that amazing location and decor. Would still highly recommend the hotel! And many of the staff were very helpful.

« Nice setting but missing a few vital touches to make it excellent. »

Very nice location and setting. Staff courteous. Airport pick-up service very good. Disappointed that no acknowledgment of our honeymoon even though it was mentioned on booking and correspondence. Room was missing a few basic amenities, especially in bathroom area (eg facial tissues, basic bathroom accessories). Bizarre that hairdryer provided did not plug into sockets in room.

Two enjoyable nights. The hotel is delightfull and full of old world charm exceptionally clean and well maintained. The staff we met were friendly helpful and professional.

« Beautiful property, with some flaws... »

This is my second stay at this hotel. The property itself is dreamlike it's so beautiful. I doubt I will return though. The location is simply too far out of the way for me. I've actually, on more than one occasion, had taxi and Uber drivers simply refuse to drive there because the roads are so treacherous. It's an extremely bumpy zigzag brick road up a driver told me the area itself was dangerous...I'm not sure if I believe him. The rooms a charming...a sort of old coffee plantation, tropical vibe. The bathrooms are great too - you could fit 4 people in the shower. The air conditioning is a bit iffy...if you want a super chilled room, you're likely to be disappointed. Also, the main common areas of the hotel are NOT air conditioned, so during summer it can be extremely hot. That said, the pool area is simply stunning with views overlooking the city and ocean. The manager I met, a woman, was extremely polite and helpful; you can tell she takes her job very seriously. She is by far the most competent of the group, though. The rest of the team could you use an upgrade. With the exception of the man working the bar by the pool, I was consistently greeted with a sort of blank stare when trying to interact with the hotel staff. This isn't the A team I'm used to in Rio. They need to send some of these people over to the Sofitel Ipanema for some training on world-class customer service. If nothing else, simply smiling would go a long way.

« Superb property. Inconsistency in the service »

Second stay in the property. Beautiful place, inside and outside. Good set up in the room for our dog (but we were not informed upfront about the additional daily cost). Good food in the Terese. Inconsistency in the service. First breakfast really good. Second breakfast: eggs clearly overcooked, missing items in the bread baskets. Sometimes waiting time really long at the swimming pool. In my first visit, I booked 2 SPA treatments but was not informed that the SPA was under refurbishment. They changed now the process and inform the customers which is good.
