« A lovely stay in Rio ! »

Great hotel and great location, but beyond everything, an awesome team! All the hotel team is so nice, available, welcoming and willing to help... I could feel that they are sincerely happy to help clients fell good and happy to discover Rio. Thank you so much to Daniel, Marcelo, Dany, Ana, Rafael, Roberto... and sorry for all those I forgot to mention here. We had a lovely stay thanks to all of you :) !

« funky comfortable place in a offbeat neighbourhood »

We enjoyed the warm welcome, comfortable room and tasty breakfast. Although the hotel was not busy as it was off-season, it seems as though it would be a lot of fun to hang out in the bar or linger over breakfast with other guests. The hotel is well situated in Santa Teresa, close to bars and restaurants. Ana and co. in reception were friendly and helpful!

« Felt like home, very stylish but noisy »

Loved the style Staff were great Restaurant was good Comfy bed and very clean, large room. Liked the location in Santa Teresa. Late check out with charge was hugely appreciated. Noise from the bar and street really disturbed our sleep. Had to call the reception on 3 mornings between 7am and 8am asking them to turn the music down. Noise insulation really needs to be improved as does sensible use of the sound system. (Does it need to be on at all before 10am? Especially when it's on very loud until 1am?) Unfortunately the noise problem got progressively worse throughout our stay. With the benefit of hindsight I wish we'd asked to move after our first poor night of sleep as staff seemed very amenable to requests. It was disappointing to keep being woken up by the bar music and to phone on multiple days.

« Very brief but great. »

I had a good time, the only complaint is the banana pie I ate for dessert (awful, dreadful and sad). Thanks for the compliment water ;)

Checking in was easy, and staff were amazing. So welcoming and helpful. The decor of the hotel was super cool, totally to our tastes. Such a reading environment. Breakfast was pretty good, and nice relaxed eating environment. The room was really stylish and the balcony was an added bonus. However I felt the conditions of the room had not been maintained. There’s was damp spots, peeling paint and just a general look of not being maintained. There’s also wasn’t much space for putting our belongings out. Would of liked more hangers or a shelf. There was slight miscommunication at our check out, where it said there was meals we hadn’t paid for even though we didn’t eat there. So maybe improve the way bills are taken? And proof of who’s actually adding to the room bill.

« I was delighted »

An invitation took me to an exotic and charming old/new style place in Santa Teresa. I couldn't stop looking the details of that place. Besides the place itself, the staff made a plus to the place. Thanks for everything guys! Special Thanks for Cleide <3 !

« Great Location »

Great location to explore Santa Teresa and surrounding area. Very close to the Tram, popular tourist attractions and some interesting local artist shops. The Escadaria Selarón mosaic staircase in Lapa is close by. the hotel has a small family feel and the staff were very helpful and friendly.

« Friendly helpful staff, great location. »

We liked the staff, very helpful when my husband lost his mobile phone. Nice atmosphere. Our first room was bit dark but it was no problem to change to a different one. Also great location.

« Splendid Stay »

What a gem! Beautiful property, great restaurant and breakfast, excellent location in Santa Teresa (just a short walk to the famous tram), but it's the people that make this a five-star review. Everyone was friendly, and helpful, especially Andrea and Ana at the front desk who helped when I left my prescription sunglasses on the plane (I got them back!). I, also, will be back. Obrigado!

« Different, but more recommended for a romantic evening or for foreigners »

I was expecting a view of Rio from Santa Tereza hills, not a good, wide room with windows that face the way others are walking by (no privacy). To be "different" can also be over the expectations. I would definitely recommend the restaurant and bar.
