Christmas in Rio

Would recommend Sun, Jan 3, 2016
We stayed in hotel Santa Teresa over Christmas period 2015 and loved it. We would definitely recommend it as the place to stay in Rio. Overall the staff were very helpful and would call out the two female receptionists who worked in the evening who were very friendly and helpful.

A little gem with some quirks

Would recommend Sun, Oct 25, 2015
I booked the Santa Teresa hotel for two nights before heading to Copacabana for the rest of my stay in Rio. I wanted some place where I could relax and chill out, and the hotel's perfect for that. There's not much to do in the Santa Teresa area - a couple of sites to see, and a fantastic restaurant called Aprazivel, but apart from that, there's not much going on, and it's quite a way into the city (60 Brazilian Real with the hotel's driver to Copacabana). So two nights here suited me perfectly. The staff at check-in were lovely and really helpful. My room was absolutely spotless, and really nicely decorated. The view from the pool is pretty spectacular, and the bar has been voted one of the most romantic, although travelling alone I can't testify to that :) The quirks? Well the wifi is really, really patchy. It struggled to cope with me uploading a photo (so I gave up). But not a big deal really. Also you do notice the security presence at the hotel - which I can totally appreciate as the area does border some favelas, but a friendly 'ola' didn't really result in any answer. I didn't eat in the hotel, so can't comment on that. In short, I enjoyed my stay in Hotel Santa Teresa, and would recommend it - there's a great cafe called Cafe Dos Altos two minutes walk away which does a buffet breakfast on weekends and has an English menu. Some people say the street the hotel's on is incredibly steep, but I didn't find it that bad at all!

The hotel was beautiful. However - the pool was under repair so wasn't able to use. This was very disappointing.

Sublime honeymoon trip

Would recommend Wed, Jan 14, 2015
Superlative experience - especially for a honeymoon. The staff was outstanding and decorated our room very nicely, for a modest fee, complete with roses, macarons and a great sparkling wine upon our arrival. The pool is really a wonderful oasis with great views and poolside bar - you feel like royalty. We stayed from Fri-Tue and we felt like the hotel pool was all our own on Mon-Tue - which is rare in Rio! Hotel bar and restaurant are also excellent. Outstanding location for getting away from the beaches and crowds, and finding some great places for dinner with music on most nights, and great place to go to Lapa for finding samba (Carioca da Gema stands out - recommended by locals).

Dining

Really great restaurants, if pricey, but worth it - don't miss Aprazivel, Espirito Santa, and Sobrenatural for seafood and great Friday night Samba. Cultivar Brazil is great for a cheap and awesome breakfast (Acai bowls and the best Pao de Queijo in Rio).

last night in Rio ( this time anyway!)

Would recommend Sun, Oct 12, 2014
We stayed only one night which was the last night of our holiday. We had a super room with great views, bed linen and shower room. The late supper included a signature sweet, ' Lollipops' recommended to all! The breakfast was excellent and so were the staff. The little touches made it, a room upgrade, a present, delicious chocolates plus the bed was made too even when we were leaving to fly home that evening. A great note on which to leave Rio!

Great boutique hotel in santa teresa neighborhood

Would recommend Tue, Apr 29, 2014
The hotel was lovely for spending about 3 days. Great pool area and terrace with a view for having some sunset drinks. The restaurants around the hotel are pricey and not so good. The Santa Teresa neighborhood is interesting but quite far from the beaches and other known spots. The hotel is a good hideaway for a short vacation far away from all the noise.

Hotel santa teresa

Would recommend Fri, Sep 27, 2013
Beautiful hotel, location, although fantastic is slightly unsafe to walk around at night. Hotel breakfast is very average and extremely expensive, should be included in price of room, as most good hotels in Rio provide. Having stayed in Relais and Chateaux hotels before, this does not really meet standards of others
