Beautiful old house. Much nicer than staying in a big hotel. Nicest breakfast in Rio. Great personal service.

Casa Mango mango gives you a sense of the real Brasil. Character oozes out of the house, the garden and the people. Only five mins walk from the city centre yet the greenery and peacefulness of the garden (with swimming pool, and at least 20 tropical fruit trees) can leave you feeling that you're not in the city. The only...

Casa Mango Mango is half B&B, half Hostel with a community vibe. This is not a place for travelers who do not interact with other guests at their hotels and it certainly is not a hotel. If you like to spend time sharing info with other people during your travel and are adventurous, this is the place for you. If...

My stay at Casa MangoMango was fantastic. The accommodation was very comfortable with great food and coffee. The staff/management etc were lovely and very helpful. The city centre is just down the hill (jump on the very cool 'Bonde' which stops out the front of the Casa). You are a little way from the beach but this is no problem...

We arrived at Casa Mango Mango at 2am more by luck than judgement with first two taxi drivers declining our fare as they had no idea where it was in Santa Teresa. But we did eventually find it hidden away along the cobbled Rua Joaquim Murtinho. The first problem was navigating the three flights of steps leading from the street...

My wife and I arrived at the hotel on New Years Eve (using their pickup service from the airport), and were greeted by Sid who showed us our room. The room was clean and beautifully decorated and the tropical gardens (with mango trees aplenty) add to the character of the property. The staff looked after us very well while we...

Our 6 days as a family in Rio was great fun with the Pousada offering a lovely atmosphere and freindly people. Our 3 grown up children enjoyed their chalet unit and it was good to be able to have the private area for us to share as a family. We (the parents) did not have the greatest room which was...

We were a team of older scholars researching a naval artist who worked in Rio in the early 19th century. Casa Mango Mango was ideal for us for an extended stay. While we were working we also felt that we were experiencing a bit of Brazilian history and culture, each room furnished with flair, the tropical breakfasts set out in...

Since discovering this website I find that I now do not book anywhere until I have read all the write ups and those for this place are just spot on. Mangomango was indeed lovely, and having stayed at the big hotels overlooking Copacabana I would definitely stay here again despite its location between two favelas. The Casa is a bit...

Casa Mango-Mango factored highly into my trip to Rio being one of the best trips I've ever taken - 32 countries so far. Admittedly, I fell in love with the city and I particularly liked Casa Mango Mango's location, charm, and amazingly friendly and helpful staff. Julie's (one of the owners) knowledge of the city will help you locate the...

Staying in Santa Teresa

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Casa MangoMango is one of the few places to stay in Rio where you can relax in a magnificent colonial, tropical setting and yet be right next to the best nightlife and activities this marvelous city offers. Set in a quaint cobbled street in the old part of the city, Santa Teresa, Casa MangoMango offers easy access both to beaches, forest and city. The house is on the the hundred-year old tram route, only ten minutes from the city centre. The house itself is a huge colonial mansion, guarded by two magnificent bi-centenarian mango trees. Hence the name, Casa MangoMango! Resplendent with original features, the house has been restored and decorated in funky, upbeat designs to cater for every taste. And outside, in the lovely, tropical gardens, there’s a cool pool too! Built by Julia Lopes, a Brazilian novelist, journalist, playwright, and lecturer, the house hosted many a sarau for the literati of the early 20th century. Today we try to keep her spirit alive by inviting local artists to display their work and employing local musicians on our multi-lingual staff. Our musical and artistic events may well be some of your best holiday memories in Brazil. ... more   less

“pay a little extra is worth it in this hostel, you will get a much better room. If you want to change money, do it at the airport if you can, you will have to take a cab to go downtown to do so if you didn't do it before arriving at the Hostel. We found the best food around Ipanema and downtown, the restaurants around the hostel were not so great and a lot of them are only open for lunch.”
