Absolut top place with Gabriel and Claudio as great hosts together with a great team. Ideal location to explore St Theresa and the city of Rio - and enjoy the Restaurants and bars nearby. Very nice rooms - every is different but all with nice design and attention to details. Great breakfast - outside on the terace - with fresh and healty items as well as home made cake. But the big difference is made by Gabriel & Claudio and their team. They made us a wonderful stay - especially now in the difficult times of the Coronavirus: It was our safety net, a save place to stay.

We loved everything! The room was stylish, clean & comfortable. The pool area is beautiful & the owners & staff clearly care about delivering a great experience. Breakfast was excellent! Beautifully presented, all fresh hand baked & so much to eat. The hosts Claudio & Gabriel & Eli were helpful & informative. Paco the dog was also friendly & lovely to have around..! The property & gardens are very well maintained & attractive. So many beautiful birds & little monkeys in the trees it really is a very special place. We are so happy we stayed here. & it was the perfect location for Carnival under 10 minutes walk to Lapa arches

We stayed at Casa Geranio for 4 nights and had the most amazing time, we couldn’t recommend it any higher! Claudio was an amazing host and provided plenty of excellent advice for things to do and restaurants / bars to visit. The atmosphere, scenery and general vibe were outstanding, whilst the breakfasts were fantastic and set us up for the full day. We also loved having Paco around!

This was me and my husbands first time in Rio, we stayed at Casa Geranio for 10 days and we honestly couldn’t of been happier with our stay ! Claudio & Gabriel were absolutely fantastic hosts, they made us feel at home from start to finish and were excellent at recommendations. Nothing was too much trouble and they really couldn’t do enough for us. Breakfast was amazing, everything is freshly made with local ingredients which you can really tell. The hotel itself is STUNNING, beautifully located in an authentic area of Santa Teresa giving some beautiful views (including a little gang of Marmoset monkeys who would often pay us a visit during breakfast) . We had the ‘suite Carioca’ which included a private infinity pool which was a real treat after a busy day site seeing (Claudio even gave us a site seeing itinerary which meant we saw some sights that we otherwise wouldn’t of known about). If you are planning a trip to Rio and after a luxurious yet authentic stay, it has to be Casa Geranio ! Lots of Love, Alice & Ben x

Casa Geranio is a lovely Pousada that feels like a 5 star hotel. The pool area is a wonderful retreat from the Rio heat. Rooms are stylish, roomy and very clean. Breakfast is without doubt a real treat served on the elegant terrace. Best of all is the care and attention Claudio and Gabriel your hosts have for their guests. They really help you get the best from your stay in Rio. I own a Guest House in the UK so my standards are high and can highley recommend Casa Geranio to other travellers. Many thanks for a fabulous stay. We hope to return.
