Small laid back luxury hotel. Authentic charm of and old coffee farm. Beautiful decor of reused wood and wooden object. Situated I the calm districts of Santa Teresa uphill from the busy center of Rio De Janeiro. Perfect room with nice city view. Lovely pool area. Beautiful and tasteful restaurant- both for breakfast and delicious dinner.

This is a great place to stay in Santa Teresa, even if probably not the best value-for-money. The restaurant was good, but there are other offers in the neighborhood. Great place to relax and wonderful views.

One of the most pleasant hotels we have used in recent years. We could happily have stayed an extra day or two. The swimming pool was really nice after a day's tourism. If ever we return to Rio, this is where we will stay.

Charme, atmosphere and very attentive service characterize this Santa Teresa gem. Extended my stay and enjoyed healthy breakfasts, the bar by the pool and an easy going environment with full support for any local arrangement. If you want something special enjoying a cultural area like Santa Teresa, off the Copacabana-Ipanema-Leblon strip, look no further!
