The hotel is an amazing place to stay in. Big cosy rooms, all very charming decorated. The location is just perfect for a stay in Rio. The staff went all the way to make us feel at home. We had some trouble with our rented car and the staff spent hours on there own time to help us... We cannot... More

The highlight of our two week trip to brasil was the three days spent at this hidden gem of a hotel. The house is a historical marvel, the food is excellent, the rooms are great and the pool is perfect. The service is relaxed and time moves slowly here - shift down a gear to enjoy your stay.

Casa Amarelo is one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever stayed. I and my husband visited Rio in 2012 and we stayed in Casa Amarelo. The place is beautiful, the rooms are extraordinary, the hotel is very stylish and people are very kind. The only disadvantage was that the staff did not speak english only the hotel manager,...

Wonderful little home hidden in Santa Teresa. Walking distance to Lapa area for dinner and shopping. Wonderful staff... breakfast delicious! Small and quaint, so not a lot of guest "noise". Perfect for a couple get-away.

We have stayed a couple times in this unique romantic place. The rooms are beautiful and clean. The kitchen staff are sweet and they do a great job. The only down side is the managment. Their price for drinks, breakfast and extras are way too much for what you get. Also, you are nit allowed to use the facilities once... More

We greatly enjoyed our time at Casa Amarelo. It felt much more like staying in an old home. It's not for everyone (as evidenced by some of the negative reviews), but for us quite charming, quirky and comfortable. We enjoyed sitting up at the pool sipping a Cachça while watching the birds, riding the old elevator up to our room,... More

This is a remarkable building. It's one of those old houses during the colonial times that has survived and been renovated back to its loveliness. The interaction of its original features with contemporary interiors is done nicely and subtly that it still comes out quite homely. We had our dinner here which was amazing and drinks are offered here too.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The French designer Robert le Heros has created a place of festivity, both poetic and colourful, thus inventing a seductive "art de vivre". Casa Amarelo is a beautiful home, refined and authentic, built in 1904 on the heights of Santa Teresa, an historic area, where artists' studios border beautiful Brazilian homes and museums. It is a magical place, a mixture of the charm of an ancient building and the modernity of contemporary fixtures and fittings. ... more   less
