The grounds were beautiful. The staff was friendly. This boutique hotel is centrally located, near (driving) to the convention center, copacobana and walking distance to shops/restaurants and historic sites. My room had a beautiful view of sugarloaf mountain.
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.
