The staff, view, and friendly services. the location although required transportation to the nearest shops, the hotel provide a food delivery, but for water, and other drinks it is available in site, the staff are wonderful and helpful, the view is out of this world especially for upper level rooms.

If you want to stay in this area of Rio (Santa Teresa/Laranjeiras) or want an authentic and relaxing Rio experience; then look no further. The views are incredible from the very large balconies and are the real highlight. But the whole place is great and has a feel of a rural retreat in the city. The rooms are spacious and...

This was really the perfect place for me to spend in my three nights in Rio! I had just spent a week in Sao Paulo and it was my first time in Rio, travelling alone and not speaking Portuguese, so was naturally a little nervous about where to stay that would be safe in Rio. I didn't need to stay...

Good location. Stunning view. Nice big rooms. The restaurant was closed during the 3 nights we stayed. And it is really a shame not to be able to have a nice drink at night to enjoy the view.
