You could come to Rio, never leave the pousada, and still have a great trip. It's the best place ever...super relaxed, breezy, interesting, bohemian, special, historic, beautiful, etc. The staff is the best part; they're so sweet and fun and make you feel really at home. Really really helpful and laid back. I felt like a queen. The room prices are extremely reasonable, too, especially for Rio. Seriously, there's NO reason not to stay here if you're in RJ. Looking forward to going back!! Thanks you guys. Say hi to Flora for me!!

Excellent location: at the same time quiet and close to good restaurants and not far from Centro, metro..... Charming place with a relaxed atmosphere. The garden and the common room is joined together with nice places to relax and have a chat with other guests or the very helpful hosts. You may also enjoy the free coffee and access to the kitchen. We will surely return to this place one day.

Room Tip: Take a room with a view to the garden

The location of this hotel (it is a hotel not a pousada) is great.
Just a block away from were you can take the bus to the city center, a few blocks from the "bobdy" (tram) and 3 blocks from lots of different bars and restaurants.
Be aware that it is in a hill so to go around you will be hiking up or down.
The room was huge and perfectly arranged with a mini bar and mini kitchen (no stove there), all very clean.
The best part of the hotel are the common areas... Charming!!! You will want to stay there instead to go to the busy city center. It has a great kitchen, there are drinks and pizza to buy, hammocks, etc.
we loved our stay there and regret that it was a short one.
Will be back

Beautiful historic house that reflects Santa Teresa: bohemian and full of art. Well located on a lit up street a short walk from everything, a large common space with hammocks to relax in, sculptures everywhere, a kitchen for common use. The staff was friendly and helpful, gave us some good tips to enjoy rio night life (basically avoid the tourist traps recommended by lonely planet and just enjoy roaming the streets of Santa Teresa and lapa where there are always things going on). One downside: we booked the cheapest room and it was a bit dirty when we arrived, perhaps just because it's and old building so walls crumble a bit (!), plus the bathrooms could do with an upgrade- they don't reflect how much love and energy has gone into the living room and feel more like a hostel. Still would definitely recommend, very atmospheric.
