Beautiful hotel with a great view
This hotel has lovely décor and the rooms are lovely with the eye for detail to what a traveler needs. The pool area is nice clean and calm with great service. The break feast was amazing with many options. If you love interior design this place is filed with small gems of natural artwork. The spa at the hotel was a lovely treat too. The location in Santa Teresa is very central and a walk around the area feels safe.

great boutique hotel
Fabulous hotel, staff was professional and friendly, most of them speak english too. We had no problem with that. Food and service was on point. (Kudos for having breakfast included on the room rate! ) The hotel location might be a bit too “exotic” and maybe hard to get to for some I get it, but was perfect to be on top of a hill around nature in Rio and we were at walking distance from various amazing places. I loved the small details as the chic Brazilian decor, the papaya fruit on the tree (so we could see the bird up close), to the attention to be environmental conscious on small details as using paper instead of plastic. Not for those looking for “old European high style hotels” this is a boutique hotel, but in any way I want it to sound like I am putting it down. I loved the place, I recommend it and would stay again. *if you can, get the room e the balcony ;)
paper instead of plastic
papaya fruit at the tree so we would have breakfast watching the birds.
Room with a balcony was such a great upgrade, really gave a extra “rio vibe” to it.
