Recently spent 5 nights in Rio for the Carnival. We stayed at Quinta Rosa in Santa Teresa. The location is great, away from the bustle of downtown Rio and yet within walking distance to Gloria metro. The hotel has been beautifully redecorated and full of character. On arrival we were given a very warm welcome by Elena, who like the rest of the staff speaks good English, and free complimentary drinks in the evenings. The room was clean and comfortable with a stylish and well equiped bathroom. There was a fantastic view from the balcony with views of Guanara Bay and the Sugar Loaf mountain. We woke up early one morning to see the sunrise over the distance. The breakfast was excellent - very healthy - lots of fresh tropical fruit and juices. There was free drinking water at all times which was very unusual in Brazil. Lovely garden to relax in after a busy day with a nice cooling pool. We would definitely stay in this same place next time we go to Rio.
