This place is a voyarists paradise; the views from the terraced breakfast area are breathtaking and cannot be conveyed merely by text.

Here are my thoughts about Casa 579. Location: The guesthouse is located in an area of Santa Teresa where there are few restaurants or bars in the immediate area. The one exception is an excellent and inexpensive cantina less than a block away. This means that a night out generally requires taking a cab, bus or combi. These come frequently,...

I spent in Casa 579 four nights in November. That's for sure too short to enjoy this special place. I highly recommend it from many reasons. Firstly, the rooms are clean, cosy and really cute. Secondly, the delicious breakfast I miss a lot. Moreover, the girls from the reception are just fantastic. Maybe the location is not so good for...

We enjoyed our stay at Casa 579. The staff was extremely helpful in helping us get organized and arrange a city tour.

We would like to respond to this review as it is by far the most disappointing review we have had here on Tripadvisor. In fact of the 28 reviews we have here, 23 rate us as very good or excellent of which we are very proud so it is very disappointing to receive reviews like these. We would like to...

I cannot praise Casa 579 enough! Excellent B&B in Santa Teresa, Rio de Janeiro. I felt completely at home from the moment I walked in the door. Teresa and her staff operate a wonderful property.

For Brazilian standards, the place is quite pricey -- around $90. Not the most glamorous location in Rio, and the nearest commercial plaza is a good half-hour walk. We were unlucky that our suite did not have hot water running, but apparently that was an unfortunate coincidence. Breakfast was all right, but probably because we were spoiled by better quality...

Staying in Santa Teresa

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
