far from the madding crowd

The staff were incredible and this little tucked away place was easy to get to everywhere by the #593 van. Very quiet and much personal attention. I found i a little more fun NOT staying on Ipanema or Cococabana, although we went there every day as part of something we were doing- surfing, eating, on he beach and then home to our retreat. Great for me, the grandmother, and my 18 year old gd. Very romantic to come again with my husband as well. Ranier, the concierge, speaks 5 languages, so you're set to explore Rio from this little gem of a basecamp.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Use the mini van system. They're extremely frequent and 593 will always get you home. Don't waste money on cabs. When returning to the hotel, don't get off at the first Sergio Porto stop. Say you need to go up the hill farther; then get off where Ranier will tell you to get on in the morning. You could probably see the favella above the hotel on your own by taking that van just a little further. It seemed a lot safer than my used thrift shop guidebooks advised. Probably getting set for the future big sporting events.

Romance you think you will never experience!

The Gavea Tropical Boutique Hotel is one of the most amazingly romantic and exotic hotels I have ever stayed in. Although it is a bit of a distance from the city life - it is only a five minute drive to downtown - you feel as though you have gone to paradice! We never wanted to leave our room!!

Honeymoon Cloud 9

We stayed at Gavea Tropical Boutique Hotel for our honeymoon in July 2012. Needless to say the Presidential Suite (Room #1) offers the same splendid view offered on the hotel's site. The breakfast included is not your typical continental bkfast, it is far more than that and worth getting up in the morning to savor. You can feed the monkeys sliced bananas! (macacao) The staff: Ranieri, Marcelo, Matias, Luiza, Tatiana, Eleinha, and John were formidable and made our stay very pleasant. The Hotel's proximity to the beaches of Leblon and Ipanema made it very easy for us to enjoy Rio de Janeiro. Since it is situated just ten minutes away from the beaches, the fact the property is situated in a private condo owned and housing real estate made it rather easy for us to commute back and forth during all hours of the day. In short, we could not have asked for a more pleasant hotel to enjoy our honeymoon. You will not be disappointed...

Nice Boutique Hotel in Rio!

If you are looking for a romantic, personal, relaxing experience in Rio this is def a good option., There is nothing to do with the old buildings tired hotels in Rio Copacabana, it's a small charming luxury house but with everything you need. Rooms are large and well decorated, staff & service are great. Location is a bit far from the Copacabana/ Ipanema area (15 min cab from Leblon/ Ipanema Beach).

good intentions / but not enough value for the money

The hotel is situated very near the Rocinha Favela, high up at the upper end of Gavea. Taxis have difficulties to find the place, walking at night not recommended. The hotel makes a deserted impression, we were the only guests, breakfast (in relation to the high price) poor, no glasses in windows in the room (noisy and insecure feeling at night), shower poor, toilet not separated from rest of bathroom, small TV screen, not well visible from the bed. Employees chatting and giggling in the kitchen while guests around (during breakfast). All in all the relation between price and value is not good at all, half the price would be ok.
