Sure, lots of hotels at the beach and especially Ipanema has a nice vibe about it. But if you do not mind taking a taxi to the beach then this place in Santa Teresa has all you could want. A nice pool, a great garden...More

This is a relatively simple accomodation run by a French-Brazilian duo in the heart of Santa Teresa. It makes for a steep climb after your day, which is the only negative thing I have to say about this place. The hotel itself is a beautifully...More

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.
