This is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The location is good, the rooms are quite basic, but clean. The hotel is quite unassuming, as the owners (Carmen and Fernando) have converted their own family home. They welcome you like family and are the some of the warmest, kindest people I have met. They will go... More

We came here having touched down in Rio from London and it was just the most perfect start to our trip in South America - many thanks Carmen and Fernando.

We were struggling to find a place to stay for the Olympics with our three children. This B&B came open and we booked it. It was clean and the beds were comfortable and they had a 3 person room for our boys. This was a great pick and less expensive although I would still try for a hotel next time.... More

My girlfriend and myself traveled to Brazil in 2015 and booked our 2 first nights here in Rio. On top of the clean and nice rooms, the terrace is simply amazing. Hosts were great and we decided to spend our last days in Rio at the same place, so in total 4 great nights spent there!

This beautiful and small guesthouse is located in Santa Teresa but not in the busiest area. The house itself is located on a hill with amazing views down to Rio. Guesthouse is also a home for the family (+cat) but all common areas are, well common areas to all us guests. There are no shops near by but Santa Teresa... More

To be a guest at the Guesthouse of Carmen and Fernando is like staying with friends. Very charming guesthouse. I had a room with my own bath. Clean and friendly. Once I come back to Rio I'm going to stay there! Thank you!

Fantastic hosts, so friendly and helpful. Beautiful views and a really beautiful house, great place to relax. Fantastic location only a few minutes walk to the metro or to the night life district of Lapa. Only thing I would say was that there was no kitchen facilities available also this was more like a B&B for families, couples and friends,... More

In short, all the reviews you read here are correct. Casa da Carmen e do Fernando is such a nice place with magnificent view, but their hospitality tops it all. I enjoyed the Santa Teresa neighbourhood a lot and the metro stop is just walking distance to go to the beach in Copacabana or Ipanema.

Staying in Santa Teresa

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors can now stroll through this area to view magnificent mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a former mansion turned museum which houses works by prominent Brazilian modern artists.
