Lovely, unique hotel of great quality. Well priced and perfect for couples. Building, rooms, gardens, pool and restaurant all very good, mostly with great views over Rio (if not the most famous). Esy to get to/from City by Taxi or Uber (this was never a problem). Breakfast is first class and staff very freindly, when not always that fluent in English (when trying to order room service at 02:00 in the morning :-) )

Lovely historical building with a contemporary design. English speaking and helpful Reception staff. All you want in a breakfast to set you up for the day. Reasonably priced dinner menu. Bar also stylish with fantastic views of Rio especially at night. Long ,slim swimming pool. In a lovely part of Ri. The area has numerous musical bars, restaurants interesting browsing shops and arty graffiti to keep you entertained if you don't want to wander very far. Take the tram down the road for Central. Such fun! Highly recommended.

Hotel santa Teresa is the most stunning place to spend a romantic weekend for 2. Loved the hotel and the kind staff, in special Aroldo who served our breakfast with an eagle eye for the details. We will come here every year again!

Wonderful hotel in the charming neighbourhood of Santa Teresa. Staff were great and accommodated our early check after arriving on a 5am flight. Our room was amazing and had a view out over the city and up to Christ Redeemer. The pool is lovely and the breakfast had lots of healthy options, plus they catered for lacto free and gluten free. Highly recommend hiring the hotel driver to explore the city for a day who was extremely knowledgable

Amidst the joyful noisy happy hubbub of Carneval, we enjoyed this quiet hideaway in the midst of it all. We had the privacy and coolness we wanted with outstanding food at dinner and breakfast and lots of neighborhood parades and celebrations just out the door. It was magical!

One of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. Incredible views as well as personable staff. Stunning location and a very clean pool. Great cocktails, really nice hammock and modern rooms. An absolute must!

If you're looking to escape the bustle of Rio, this might well be the right hotel for you. Hidden away between the steep, cobbled streets of Santa Teresa, this hotel is an oasis of calm. The terrace and outdoor pool blend seamlessly into the gardens and the panoramic views across the heart of Rio and the bay beyond are incredible. Even if you're not staying here, it's worth seeking this hotel out as you're exploring Santa Teresa. You may end up wanting to stay after all.

Loved our stay in this beautiful hotel. Great neighborhood. Everything about our stay was fantastic. Spent 2 nights in Santa Teresa before heading down to a hotel at the beach. Pool area is beautiful & tranquil.

I merely had an overnight stay here , I wish it had been longer . Interesting older building with some very nice art about the place . The reception staff were very friendly as were the doormen and valet staff . I only had time for breakfast which I recommend highly , my eggs florentine was exquisite, thank you chef . I just wish one was able to purchase a wooden armidillo .

The restaurant at Hotel Santa Teresa is outstanding. We dined there both nights of our stay. Furthermore, the decor is quite special with many artifacts, and the extensive gardens are beautiful and carefully tended.
