The staff are helpful, with more or less English spoken. The rooms are, so so. I mean not very good, but just okay. Due to someone strongly blowing nose, I didn't sleep well during the night, but I don't think it's their fault. The location...More

Staff tried to be helpful, although no English spoken, but the state of the rooms are a bit crappy. This is very much a money making venture and not a particularly good experience for guests. Breakfast was adequate though. Blame lies with owner. Don't stay...More

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.
