Friendly staff gives it home feeling. In the fantastic Santa Theresa area. A real Rio refuge! Lovely garden. Short stroll to metro. Near the free team stop and in walking distance to lapa. Highly recommended.

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.
