Very nice place, 10 minutes from SDU airport. Friendly staff, big rooms. The breakfast terrace is awesome, with a nice view of the city. Neighborhood is calm and has a couple of cool restaurants around. Not near the beaches, but definitely worth it!

We stayed in Castelinho 38 twice in January, in total for 5 nights. We had a great time there, stayed in 2 equally beautiful and clean rooms and really enjoyed to not stay in Copacabana or Ipanema but in a more quiet part of town. Santa Teresa has a cute little center with a couple of bars and restaurants and...

Great boutique hotel with a lot of character. I loved the breakfast terrace overlooking the garden, with the city in the distance. The honesty bar (pour yourself a drink and log it in the book) was a great concept, making the bar available 24/7. This directly mirrored the honesty and hospitality of the staff. Olindo and Fernanda made multiple arrangements...
