My husband and I stayed at Casa Cool Beans as part of our 30th wedding anniversary celebration before we left on a cruise for Chile. We were here for eight days and it was superb. Lance, our host could not have been more giving. He...More
My partner and I stayed at Cool Beans over the New Year break and I can honestly say that it completely surpassed our really high expectations given its status as top B&B spot in Rio. We were warmly greeted by Lance and David - a...More
We had spent only 2.5 days in Rio before heading to São Paulo for a wedding in August. But during these two days we were able to see much of Rio thanks to Lance expert advice and our tour guide, Francoise. The rooms were immaculate...More
Reading reviews of hotels in Rio can be bewildering and ultimately not terribly helpful. Finding somewhere clean, well-maintained, friendly, and in a safe neighbourhood seems impossible. Then you come across a place like this.

You have to take a taxi or you can walk down to Rio de Janeiro (25 min walk downhill) and take the Metro. It's about a 4 block walk from the Metro to Ipanema Beach. Taxis are not that expensive though. Returning to Casa Cool Beans by taxi presents a problem as most we stopped did not know where the address was and asked us to get out of the taxi. Then our wonderful host told us what to tell the taxi and no problem after that. Be sure to ask what to tell the taxi drivers.
