Amazing stay in Rio de Janeiro à Santa Teresa Guest House (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

4,8 Dernier avis le janvier 21, 2015

We stayed with Ann for 4 nights over New Years this year and we had a great time. The apartment was quite large and very clean, and the room had a beautiful view facing south to Rio de Janeiro. Santa Theresa itself is a great area full of restaurants and bars (try Rustico, it was awesome) and Ann advised us on safety procedures after dark. We did not feel unsafe at any point here. Ann went out of her way to make us a traditional Brazilian meal during our stay and a few lemonades to help with the heat wave. It was great to have an english host as we did not find a lot of english speaking people in Rio to help us. I would definitely stay here again and recommend her to others!

A truly amazing experience à Santa Teresa Guest House (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

5 Dernier avis le juillet 23, 2014

We had the pleasure of staying with Ann for a few weeks during the World Cup in Rio this June. Although the festivities and culture were wonderful, the most special experience of this trip was meeting Ann. From the first day arriving in Rio to the last morning's breakfast, Ann treated us with such hospitality and generosity that we always felt completely welcome and comfortable staying in her home. Not only did Ann provide us with a beautiful view and suggestions for sightseeing, but she also extended herself to show us around the city, cared for us when we both fell ill during the trip, and gave us many nights of lively conversation. We feel extremely grateful to have met Ann and feel that we have made a lifelong friend. She is a wonderfully special person that we hope to one day visit again. This trip has been an unforgettable experience in large part to Ann's kindness and warmth. Thank you, Ann for helping us make this an incredible trip that we will always remember! Love from Josue and Alyssa, California.

(COCHERA sin CARGO cuando el rio eso se paga y muy caro.)

Our experience à Rio House Inn (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

5 Dernier avis le avril 14, 2014

We always wanted to visit Brazil. We were lucky that we decided to stay at Elizabeth's apartment! Osvaldo and Elizabeth are very kind and provide excellent service! We felt like we're at home. Rooms are very clean,comfortable and cosy. We had everything we needed. Breakfasts are delicious: Elizabeth cooked really nice Brazilian coffee, cakes, fresh bread, fruits and meat. Even ice-cream! Especially, we appreciate Elizabeth's recommendations regarding places to visit and all the information we needed. Bathrooms are also clean and comfortable. Rooms were cleaned daily. By the way, Sao Conrado beach is just 5 minutes away: probably one of the best beaches in Rio...very clean, neat and not crowded. On the opposite side of the house there's a nice supermarket and a fashion mall. In the evening you can enjoy local pizzeria as well as Starbucks and McDonalds are a few minutes away! To conclude, if you are going to Rio, you should choose Donini's apartment, without a doubt! Best regards, Alex.

They are very friendly and very honest people, who helped us to solve all problems we had. We are a family from Russia who stayed in this apartments "Bianco B&B Copacabana" in March, 2014. It’s a great place! It is located in an excellent location in Copacabana, it is only 5 minutes walk from the beach, the metro, the supermarket, the bus station, the bank, some restaurants and cafe. In the apartments there is a living room with TV, air conditioning, WiFi-internet, the suite has a individual toilet and shower cabin in it. The all apartment is very clean, comfortable and cozy. The kitchen has all facilities (stove, microwave, refrigerator, etc). The host, Italo, is professional tour guide, who speaks in English, Italian and Portuguese, he organized very interesting and exiting tours across Rio for us. And the most important, there they live two magnificent cats Bianco and Fino (my daughter was delighted)! We loved this place and this family during our staying and we had great time! -- Best regards, Konstantin!

5 Dernier avis le mars 20, 2014

i returned to appartment of Ann after one year and a half. me and my friend found there all we could imagine - peace, calm, comfort and constant care. Ann is a wonderful host, unique in Rio and in all Brasil. She made her house into ours. We found location is perfect for carnaval time - not so crowded as other turistic parts of rio, very close to sambodromo and lapa with its wonderful bars and night life. Shops, street markets and Gloria metro station is just a few minutes away. That february and march we spend there with Ann will always be in our hearts. For sure we shall come back as soon as we can. I recommend this place to all my friends and family. See u soon Ann!

Great location in Copacabana. WONDERFUL host à Bianco BB COPACABANA (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

4,2 Dernier avis le janvier 08, 2014

The place is clean and comfortable. The accommodations are very clean and secure, as well as reasonably priced even during the most expensive time to stay in Rio (New Year's eve). The BEST part of staying here besides it being 2 blocks from Copacabana beach, and walking distance to most things you may want to do, is that the host, Italo, is trilingual (speaks English, Italian and Portuguese) and was SO attentive to us. When I told him I needed more light in the bathroom to shave, he promptly changed it. He picked me up at the airport for free! To top it all off, he's certified as an international tour guide, and for a reasonable fee he showed us around the city...way better than hiring a taxi (which can be unsafe in Rio) because he told us about the city and the sights in our language (English). We felt like we had a personal concierge during our stay. If you read this review and on contacting the owner you find that the place is booked, you can still ask the owner/host (Italo) if he will be your tour guide during your stay in Rio since you don't have to stay with him to have him as a tour guide. We didn't have breakfast here since we wouldn't wake up before 11am but I rated it highly because I'm sure it would have been great had we been up for it.

Amazing Days in Brazil à Santa Teresa Guest House (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

5 Dernier avis le septembre 12, 2013

I stayed at Ann's place for about two weeks in August. The flat is in a quiet area of Santa Teresa and is easily accessible. There's a taxi park on her street, a bus stop at the beginning of the street and the Gloria metro as well. For the more adventurous tourist, you can pay for a motorbike ride at the beginning of the street. It is safe and cheap!...but if you'ld rather not, a taxi is readily available or you can walk up the street. Its about 10 or 15 minutes walk. The view from the room is stunning. Yes! You can see Sugarloaf Mt right from your room window. You can easily take a bus or taxi to Teatro Municipal, the Cathedral, Rio Branco (a popular street) and other places of interest. If you choose to walk, it is such an interesting walk - and should be able 30 or 40 minutes walk. From the upper end of her street, I could actually see the beach, although I never went there. The upper end of the street boasts of a relaxed Santa Teresa lifestyle - restaurants and quaint gift shops to buy lovely souveneirs. I particularly liked the 'Sunday afternoon vibe' there. There are much more shops and restaurants at the bottom end of the street. I found Santa Teresa to be relatively safe. I never felt threatened nor was attacked during my stay. The best part of Ann's house is Ann! I had written a longer review outlining all the wonderful things she did but had to delete them when the system would not accept my review. My summary is that I was treated like a queen! Ann is such a decent, wonderful person and a thoughtful hostess - and her English is perfect. My stay in Rio was nothing short of AMAZING. If you need a place in Rio, do yourself a favour and stay at Ann's. I guarantee you'll never forget the experience.

Our fantastic two weeks in Rio à Santa Teresa Guest House (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

5 Dernier avis le juin 27, 2013

The location is ideal. The Swiss Embassy is on the same Rue aka Street. The view including Sugar Loaf is great. The B&B is spotless, comfortable and inviting but the real gem is Ann. She treated us like friends and was so helpful in guiding us about the area. I am not fluent in Portuguese but that was never a problem with Ann's guidance. The people were friendly & polite. The nearby Metro was easy to use and free if you are over 65! This is how the NYC subway should be folks. Loved my vacation. Thank you again Ann. Barbara & Rye, Pennsylvania, USA

Best B&B in Rio à Guest room for rent (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

5 Dernier avis le mai 28, 2013

We had the great pleasure to stay in the house of Luiz for five days. The apartment is beautifully decorated and only several minutes walk to the Botafogo beach and to the metro station. Botafogo is a nice neighbourhood which is not very touristic. Our room was very nicely decorated and there was a spacious private bathroom. Very nice view from the appartement on a hill with tropical forest. Luiz prepared a vey nutritious breakfast every morning for us and he explained us many things about Rio and the Cariocas. Sometimes Luiz’ girlfriend (Carla) stays at the apartment. She is a very nice person too. They helped us a lot as we lost a suitcase during our travel and also with getting Brazilian sim cards etc. We enjoyed our stay very much and will certainly stay the next time in Rio again at Luiz’ apartment.

Falling in love with Rio à Rio Lodge Inn (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

5 Dernier avis le janvier 01, 2013

My friend and I spent a week in Rio in June 2012. He is originally from Brazil and was showing me his country. He and Hilda hit it off famously. As they chatted in Portuguese I enjoyed some of the best breakfasts a person could have. Fresh fruit, breads, eggs, juices..it was something to look forward to every morning and it got you going for your day. Hilda was the perfect hostess and a wonderful conversationalist at breakfast going back and forth in English and Portuguese. She made us feel so at home. By the end of the week we felt like we lived in Rio. For the price in Rio you will not find anything better. We love you Hilda! Looking forward to going back to Rio in 2014.

5 Dernier avis le décembre 14, 2012

Stayed there in October. Trip to Rio was amazing and the highlight was staying in the Utropico Guesthouse. Would recommend it without hesitation. A peaceful and safe retreat to return to each day after touring around Rio. It may seem a bit far out but was well worth the effort. Silvia + Francisco were wonderful hosts who couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. Would willingly fly to Rio again just to stay there.

Great place in Rio à Utrópico Guesthouse (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

5 Dernier avis le octobre 07, 2012

Fun, sun , great atmosphere and a sense of true Rio. This is a great spot for relaxation, while close to the beaches etc of Rio.  Silvia and her family made us very welcome in a very comfortable part of their home which is laid out in  3 sections. Each has it's own sitting and outside patio area as well as bedroom. The decor is tasteful. The property sits on the waters edge of an island with a beautiful tropical backdrop. Rainforests lie in the background while the hum of passing boats is interrupted by the songs of many varied and interesting birds and others (including a monkey). One is truly made to feel at home here. No trouble is spared in being very helpful with ideas and information about transport and tourist attractions. Breakfast is leisurely and varied with great fruits and Brazilian coffee.  Although Utropico is a little away from downtown Rio, part of its charm is getting there by boat and a feeling of warmth and safety while staying there. We had a great time and look forward to our next visit.

Unforgettable experience à Santa Teresa Guest House (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

5 Dernier avis le juillet 12, 2012

From the first moment i saw the area where the house is i understood how lucky i was. The view from the window is extraordinary, very close to Gloria metro maximum 10 min walking, very beautiful and safe location. I was warmly hosted by Ann for all my long stay in Rio during 1 month. I never felt like a stranger in her house. She was my guide in every moment i needed help. If u don't speak portuguese that's the host u need! Her native English is not commonly found in Rio. I highly recommend this great place for those who are looking for comfort, security and real feel of Rio. By all means I am going to come back here next vacation. Alexander from Russia.

carnival week in Rio à Rio Lodge Inn (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

4,8 Dernier avis le mars 16, 2012

We stayed with Hilda carnival week and this accommodation was perfect. Hilda was an excellent hostess. The rooms were very clean and the bed comfortable. Hilda made us so welcome and was extremely helpful with advice about which bus to catch and local information. Sao Conrado was an excellent area to stay as it was only ten minutes by the local mini buses to Ipanema and Copacabana and the beach is not crowded. It has a relaxed atmosphere where we felt very safe. Hilda's breakfasts were delicious and if we returned to Rio we would definitely stay with Hilda again. We had a great week in Rio and thoroughly enjoyed the carnival. We were advised to go to the Sambadrome on the saturday evening which was cheaper, the groups went through quicker than sun and mon and it was amazing. Go yourself by taxi. Do not trust catching a shuttlebus organised by the Rio carnival ticket office. They do not turn up and the taxi got us there easily.

5 Dernier avis le mars 14, 2012

I’ve stayed in hotels and bed and breakfasts for about 45 nights around the world in the past year and this was by far the most enjoyable accommodations I’ve experienced. Sonia’s hospitality and sincere joy of entertaining made this a wonderful time for me. I can truly say I count her as a friend after my time with her. Her place is clean, a short walk from the beach and very accessible from the Metro station a couple of blocks away. It’s in a safe area where I felt comfortable walking around very late at night. Sonia’s building is very nice and has 24-hour doormen who are willing to help. I especially enjoyed her huge top floor balcony. I started my mornings and ended my nights on the balcony, eating, drinking wine and socializing with Sonia and the other guests. Sonia made me feel welcome and at home. I highly recommend Sonia’s bed and breakfast. She is an amazing hostess who sincerely cares about her guests. Thank you for a wonderful time in Rio, Sonia!!! I really, really appreciate the time I spent with you!!! Thomas Blue Charlotte, North Carolina, USA

I recently stayed at the Rio Lodge Inn for four nights, what a treat at the end holiday! Hilda is a wonderful host and was so welcoming, accommodating every request! The accommodation was fantastic and so comfortable with plenty of space. Breakfast was amazing with an array of items fit for a king/queen!! Location good, easy to get to Centro, Copa, Impanema, Leblon via the regular minivan service which passes every few minutes and doesn't take long, also taxi's and buses available close by. I couldn't leave a review without mentioning Hilda's extraodinary hospitality....she went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect and even ensured I took the correct minivan the first day I ventured out! As a single female traveller I felt extremely safe here and would highly recommend staying here to everyone! Thanks Hilda!! Louise, Scotland.

Highly recommended - Little paradise with wonderful host and room with sugar loaf view in Rio’s best neighborhood à Santa Teresa Guest House (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

5 Dernier avis le septembre 20, 2011

I stayed here for a week and was absolutely happy from the first to the last minute. Ann is a perfect host: very warm, welcoming, super nice and she makes you feel comfortable and at home from the moment you come to her place. She knows all about Rio and Brazil and can give you loads of recommendations and advice. And even more: She actually took me to amazing places in Rio and surroundings and showed me where to eat and have fun. I was in Rio for work and on my first day she walked me to my workplace to show me the way and make me feel comfortable which was so helpful. She is a wonderful person to talk to and speaks English perfectly which is so helpful for the traveller with limited understanding of Portuguese and not at all standard in Rio, not even in the big (and expensive) hotels. The flat is like an oasis in somewhat chaotic Rio, it is very secure and a lovely getaway from the hectic and noise. The whole flat and the room I stayed in are delightful - tastefully decorated, nice and spacious with a comfortable bed and everything else you need, even a hammock. And: You have direct view of beautiful sugar loaf, the islands and the sea with unforgettable sunrises from your own window! The whole flat is very clean, the hot shower is wonderful and in the mornings Ann serves a delicious breakfast with fresh fruit and everything else you could possibly want. Santa Teresa has many beautiful old houses, a wonderful artistic atmosphere and lots of nice bars and restaurants. From Ann’s flat you reach everything in Santa Teresa easily but it is also only a short walk to the city center of Rio. If you want to go to the beaches, it’s a short Metro ride. I had an awesome time in Ann’s place and would never ever stay anywhere else in Rio. Ann and her place played THE role in why I enjoyed my stay in Rio so much. I recommend this place to anyone travelling to Rio. I myself can’t wait to be back and to show my husband this unique and perfect getaway. Marie from Hamburg, Germany

Les Mots du Propriétaire... Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro : l’Atlantique, la baie de Guanabera, et des pics de granit, dont le plus célèbre est le Pain de Sucre, et la statue du Christ Rédempteur… une ville que l’on connait par le nom de ses plages, en particulier Copacabana ou Ipanema. La ville du plus grand Carnaval au monde avec les costumes les plus fous, la musique la plus envoutante et le défilé des écoles de Samba. Les participants qui se sont préparés toute l’année et ont fait de grands sacrifices pour payer leur costume ont choisi un thème et défilent sur le Sambodromo acclamés par leurs supporters et par des milliers de brésiliens ou de touristes venus du monde entier pour assister à cet événement exceptionnel.

Rio, la ville de la musique, Samba, Bossa nova, funk carioca ; la ville des extrêmes qui voit le luxe côtoyer la misère (un tiers des habitants de Rio vivent dans des favelas). La ville du football, de Pelé et du mythique Maracana, le plus grand stade au monde qui peut accueillir 120 000 spectateurs… Que voir d’autre à Rio ? Prendre le bonde electrico (le tramway) pour aller au quartier de Santa Teresa, si pittoresque avec ses ruelles, ses belles maisons anciennes et ses jardins suspendus. S’aventurer dans le Parc National Tijuca, extraordinaire vestige urbain de la foret tropicale. Découvrir plus de 6000 variétés de plantes tropicales au Jardim Botanico, ou visiter l’un des nombreux musées parmi lesquels le Musée du Carnaval ou le Musée consacré au compositeur Villa Lobos.

Quand viendra le moment de se reposer et de manger vous pourrez déguster l’une des nombreuses spécialités que l’on sert à Rio, en particulier des plats de poissons comme la muqueda de peixe, et gouter la cachaça (le rhum blanc), sans parler des innombrables cocktails et des jus de fruits exotiques. Avant de repartir laissez vous tenter par quelques souvenirs de votre séjour, de la vannerie ou de la maroquinerie, des pierres précieuses, des carrancas qui sont de petites amulettes, des objets fabriqués avec des plumes d’oiseaux exotiques, sans oublier des disques de Samba ou de Bossa-nova.

Rio a un climat tropical idéal pour les plaisirs de la plage, si le taux d’humidité y est élevé, la température estivale oscille entre 25 et 40 degrés et la température « hivernale » entre 20 et 30 degrés. Bon plan pour visiter Rio: choisir une chambre d’hôtes ou un Bed & Breakfast aux environs de la capitale et profiter ainsi de prix malins !
