We spent a weekend at Casa Gerânio and had a great time. The hotel and the grounds are stunning, the gardens are immaculate and the room is very comfortable. The highlight of the Carioca Suite is definitely the private pool with a beautiful view of the city. The owners Gabriel and Claudio are wonderful people who make sure everything is perfect. Breakfast is outstanding with a great spread of fruits, breads, cakes and even açaí! Highly recommend and will be back!
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.
WOW! We travel extensively and I must say this is now one of our favorites! From the moment we arrived, we knew we found a hidden gem. Claudio and Gabriel are exceptional hosts. Gabriel designed the living and sleeping areas and his taste is exquisite. Claudio has a million suggestions and you would be wise to follow them. His best was when I told him our guide would be picking us up at 7:30am the morning after we arrived. He called the guide and rescheduled so that we could have breakfast before touring. The guide wasn’t happy but when we saw the breakfast he prepared, we were over the moon. He is an excellent chef and baker and every morning prepared something different and special. They cannot be better hosts. We stayed in two rooms over the four days and both were wonderful. However, if the suite with the plunge pool is available, book it. You won’t be sorry. I really hated leaving this special place in Rio. …
We had stayed at Casa Geranium for 12 days in November. We had amazing time. Claudio and Gabriel are just absolute gems. They have wealth of knowledge of Rio, it’s history, attractions, nightlife, restaurants.. they can advise you on anything you want to do. And are always around at breakfast, ready to have a chat and answer any questions to set you up for the day. Breakfast is just brilliant, lovely and fresh. We would definitely stay here again, without even looking to book anywhere else.
If you are staying in Rio...you must stay here! Incredibly clean, comfortable, welcoming and the most amazing breakfast!! Fresh fruit juices everyday and homemade cakes! Very good coffee too! Claudio was the perfect host...helping with tips to plan our day, where to go etc, even wrote down addresses and recommendations! This place is so quiet despite having lively Lapa only a 10 minute walk away. It is a great location...you can get buses or walk to tram stop but we used Uber’s...they are such good value for money! We didn’t get much chance to chill in the pool area...but the 30mins we did have...was pure heaven!! Thanks Claudio for making the start of our honeymoon so memorable!
At the food of the hills to Santa Teresa are a few beautiful mansions located. One of them is Case Geranio. On the nice patio surrounded by trees and plants with little monkeys and many birds is a small swimming pool with sun beds. A lovely place to spend some hours if you are not discovering the exciting city. Otherwise you could spend time reading and enjoying a drink on the covered verandah. Another great outside spot. Or stay in the very well decorated room (with a small fridge, nice shower, comfortable bed). Breakfast is really wonderful. The owner Claudio provides every day another fresh fruit juice, a variation of fresh prepared eggs, fresh fruit, cakes etc. It was such a pleasure to sit on the terrace and be spoiled. Claudio is also a great host in assisting with tips and whatever you need. The only ‘take care’ is that some taxis are not willing to drive up the hill to deliver you to the B&B so make sure you are not just dropped at the food of the hill…..…
