The guesthouse is beautifully decorated, very clean and secure.
Unfortunately we are unable to add to the positive reviews of the guesthouse after our four night stay. The below review is given with much thought, and not based on any particular negative experience or disagreement. For several reasons we would not return: 1. The area of Santa Teresa is isolated, far away from all main attractions, and almost impossible to access. The area consists of steep hills. It is unpleasant to walk around and very difficult to or from which to get an Uber. The restaurants and bars in the area close at 10pm, and therefore if you like to enjoy a later dinner or drink in the evening, you need to go to Lapa (which has a very different vibe to Santa Teresa). It is close by but returning involves an uncomfortable and unpleasant steep walk back, and it simply not possible to get an Uber. 2. On arrival, we were told that we would need to present for breakfast by 9.30 and no later. 10 am is considered lunchtime according to the owner. This is an unusually early time to finish breakfast, particularly for a holiday centred guesthouse. There was no offer to leave aside some juice, bread and fruit for us to have later after we woke up. Other hotels we have recently stayed in have served breakfast until 11am, and have offered to leave some food aside for those wishing to have a lie in. 3. We were expecting a different and warm atmosphere, and some orientation, advice and guidance from the owners based on the other reviews. This was not evident. The atmosphere in the house was quite cold. It is with regret to give the guesthouse a 4/10 rating but we feel that this is an honest and fair representation, and all that we can give based on our experience. We would not stay here again.

The friendliness and welcoming hosts of Guido and Francisco. Cleanliness of the property. The location is great within the centro of Rio. Situated in a cool neighbourhood of Lapa and Santa Teresa. For awareness, the surrounding area is hilly, so good exercise to go and come back on foot if you are using public transportation a lot: Cinelandia or Gloria. Perfect for those who are not looking to spend time at the beach areas.
Minor dislike - the internet connection was weak in the room.

the house is amazing, a sense of detail close to perfection. The kindness of the hosts was unparalleled, we had a plane at 8pm in the evening and Guido left us a room to freshen up even though we had returned our room.

breakfast was excellent, severs next to a big mango tree, in exquisite surroundings. Loved the interior design, obviously the hosts have a very special sensitivity for art and design. Location is great (although Santa Theresa is sometimes a bit difficult to get an Uber from or to).
Unfortunately I didn't look into the booking details beforehand and oversaw that payment must be made in cash only. Fortunately the host allowed electronic to an overseas account. Maybe better to make options even clearer to people like me, who never read guidelines upfront when on vacation.

Attentive, helpful and very friendly host. Guesthouse is gorgeous and in a very convenient location that feels authentic; its far from mass tourism yet close to everything by Uber or cab (Im a solo traveler and dont drive); it might take a few more minutes to get an Uber as other reviewers said but it wasnt a problem at all for me. Breakfast was plentiful and such a peaceful moment every morning, overlooking the beautiful garden (with little monkeys in the mango tree!).
The room I stayed in got pretty bright early in the morning and the birds can be pretty loud so it could be useful to bring an eye mask and earplugs. But these were minor inconveniences for me. All the rest was so wonderful.

We had a perfect stay! The villa is just gorgeous, artistic, charming, perfect and the hosts are nice, Guido and Francisco make you feel like home! Breakfast was the best one we've had during our stay in Brazil so far, served in the garden with light music. Fantastic!

Guido is an incredibly nice host, he is kind and helpful. The house offers a nice view and is located in a vibrant neighborhood in Santa Teresa. I can highly recommend staying at this place, it has been the best accommodation we've seen during our stay in Brazil.

The house is beautiful & comfortable, wonderful garden , very close to all the attractions in Santa Teresa and lots of good restaurants. Guido & Chico are amazing hosts, they gave us many tips & information about what to see & do in the city & served us a great breakfast every morning. They even brought me a mini cake & sang for me on my birthday, which was really sweet & made me start the day happy & smiling. Highly recommended, we stayed for 10 ten days and had a wonderful time.

Everything was great right from the start. We happened to reach the property in the middle of the night, and the host Guido was there waiting without any complaints. Breakfast was very tasty, healthy with lovely options. Its located in a beautiful area just adjacent to the centre and has great restaurants; very close to the selaron steps. The hosts are very helpful and warm and helped us with all our planning for the day trip. There is an orchard at the entry with parrots on the mango tree. Bianca is the highlight however, you wouldnt want to miss her! We booked this place a little last minute and we are the kind who ordinarily would stay in hotels. This is by far the best place we have stayed in our entire South America trip and I am so glad we stayed here! Thank you!
Really nothing!
