10/10 Exceptional

I spent 4 days in this beautiful charming house, and felt home the moment I passed the gate. The house located in the beautiful authentic neighborhood of Santa Teresa is decorated with taste displaying very cozy and clean rooms. A delicious breakfast is served under the trees with a very nice view on the city and I had the chance to see the little monkeys populating Rio while having my morning coffee. The host Matthieu is incredibly welcoming and helpful. I came last minute without organizing anything and Matthieu took time to recommend many activities and made me feel I was part of his community. I had an incredible experience and strongly recommend a stay in Casa Da Santa !

2/10 Poor

Doesn't have it together
Two days before our stay we get an email where the hotelier offers to send a car to the airport for R$160.00. We said okay and responded immediately to his email. No return response. We wait at the airport for an hour. No car. So We take a taxi for R$60.00 a hundred rias cheaper than his offer of a car. Then we get to his B&B and it is chain locked ad shuttered. We tried to call the number on the reservation but it was listed wrong. We had to knock on doors to find a neighbor who knew his number. When we finally did contact him he was stuck in traffic. His suggestion was to tote our luggage up a steep hill in the 95 degree heat and wait for him in the square. (approx 40 minutes) We enlisted the taxi driver who found us a wonderful b&B called Casa Belize. If you rent this place make sure all your ducks are in a row.

Nice and friendy guest-house.
Stayed here during carnival week. Iberia had lost our luggage somewhere between Malaga and Rio airport. Matthien went that extra mile during our stay, spending hours over the three days trying to locate our luggage. With his help we managed to retrieve the case just in time to catch our cruise ship. Matt was also very knowlegeable about places to visit in the area providing us with maps and suggestions.

Charming and unique
This is a very small, charming and unique hotel in an old house in a nice neighborhood that feels more like a community than a tourist destination. The owner is very knowledgeable and helpful and hooked us up with an English-speaking driver to show us around in the limited time window we had for touring. We enjoyed walking around the neighborhood and felt safe. Breakfast on the veranda was lovely. The one drawback was that we had to pay in advance by wire transfer which was inconvenient and costly. But we were well cared for and had an experience that felt more authentic than staying in a big hotel by the beach.

Vidunderlig udsigt med eminent service
Værten Matt er en hyggelig og meget venlig fyr, der giver gode råd om hvad der rør sig i området. Vi nød morgenmaden på terassen, der er samlingspunkt for B&B's gæster. Her fik vi en hyggelig snak med et argentinsk og tysk par. Udsigten er fantastisk og værelserne og huset er intet mindre. Et gammel æstetisk hus, der er sat i stand i bedste art-deco stil.

Oase am Rande von Santa Teresa
Kleine Pousade mit Blick auf Downtown. Mit dem Garten und den verschiedenen Terrassen wirkt das Casa da Santa wie eine Oase mitten in der Stadt. In den stilvoll eingerichteten Zimmern und den für alle Gäste zugänglichen Räume macht der Aufenthalt Freuden. Matthieu ist ein sehr guter Gastgeber und hat eine Fülle an Tips parat sowohl für Besichtigungen und Kultur, als auch für das Nachtleben.
