We stayed four nights in Casa Beleza and had a good experience. We stayed in the Bungalow up the hill, with amazing view from the bed and terace. The owners went out of their way to help us with amazing tours and guides to see the city. The breakfast was tasty, especially the maracuja-juice (passion fruit), yummie. Only downside is...

Thanks for posting a review. I'm glad to know you enjoyed the food tour, favela visit and samba school night we arranged for you - it's a good way to let future guests know about some of what Rio has to offer. We were left scratching our heads, however, at the critique of your room, because you mentioned nothing about...

Casa Beleza is..... the most beautiful house! Our stay here made our visit to Rio a truly memorable experience. Leafy Santa Theresa is a great neighbourhood - quiet, with lovely restaurants and shops but away from the hustle and bustle. The house is set within its own lush gardens (where Tamarin monkeys played in palms and eyed our breakfasts), immaculately...

I stayed at Casa Beleza during the Olympics. The booking was super easy and Bindu was very attentive/responsive about making sure I would arrive OK, even being very flexible when my plans changed at the last minute. That was pleasant enough, but the moment I rang the bell and Bindu greeted me, I felt like I was arriving at a...

A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a former mansion turned museum which houses works by prominent Brazilian modern artists.
