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!

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....

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.

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors can now stroll through this area to view magnificent mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a former mansion turned museum which houses works by prominent Brazilian modern artists.
