The smart thing in Rio is to avoid the beaches and establish you base in Santa Teresa, which is a sort of latin american combination of Kreutzberg (Berlin) and Montmartre (Paris ). The even smarter thing to do is to choose Casa Aurea to get a relaxed and homely feeling to which you can retire after doing the typical Rio tourist activities. Casa Aureas mix of colonial style and breezy approach epitomises Santa Teresa. Our modus operandi was to take the 'Bonde' tram down in the morning but taking a taxi return later to avoid the queues - its always a good idea to travel against the traffic. We staid in a garden room and had private outdoor space but the pation public space is also a nice place with lot of charming artefacts.

Room Tip: Garden Rooms are very nice and private

Reviewed 18 December 2016

This was our first stop in a seven week trip to South America. We were not disappointed.
The property is more like a guest-house for welcome guests rather than an impersonal hotel. Very friendly and helpful - English spoken. Good for experienced travellers, young couples and families with older children. It's above the noise and traffic - easy to walk down, take a taxi uo (cheap). Air-conditioning and refrigerator in rooms. You can prepare your own food in the kitchen.

We can confirm other positive review.

An ideal balance between functionality, comfort and good vibes makes this the perfect place to stay in Santa Teresa. The rooms are clean, simple and tasteful, and the common areas are both groovy and elegant. Their guest kitchen is clean and well-equipped, and there's always a hammock to read or rest in. The people who work there are warm treasures who helped us discover Rio, and the pousada is a tranquil place to relax after long days exploring the city. The neighborhood is lovely and the pousada is a short walk from all its charming bars, restaurants, shops and sites. You may never want to leave! Highly recommended.

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!!
