“Great place for relaxation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

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.

I spent 3 nights at Quinta Rosa in the start of a 7 weeks trip around South America. I was not a big fan of Rio but loved my stay at Quinta Rosa. Elen who is administrating the place was extremely helpful and welcoming and you get the most beautiful breakfast served outdoor next to the pool if you wish. Nice pool as well in a lovely garden where you can just enjoy the peacefulness after an exhausting day exploring Rio.

Was in Rio de Janeiro recently for this year’s Carnival and stayed in the Quinta Rosa Recidencias. Elena the manager who greeted us was really friendly and helpful and she spoke English!!

Our room, which was clean with modern style furniture, overlooked a lush garden and a small, longish bath-tub like swimming pool. Better still if you happen to get up early in the morning, as we did, you will be rewarded with a view of a beautiful sunrise over the distant Guanabara Bay with the Sugar Loaf Mountain and surrounding buildings silhouetted in the foreground.

Quinta Rosa is up the cobbled Rua Santa Catarina, in the Santa Teresa area. The underground Metro Gloria is not far away downhill and we found taxis inexpensive. We did walk up the slope a couple of times and once even braved going up on one of those motorbikes which we found awaiting passengers at the bottom of the road (seemed quite safe)!

Breakfast though was a climb further up the road to the sister hotel, Quinta Azul. However the fare, including fresh fruit juices, made going the extra distance worthwhile. Other unexpected pluses were the free WiFi and complimentary drinks.

All in all we were very happy with our accommodation and with the service.

Stayed at Quinta Rosa for the Carnival - great location in Santa Theresa, with a local atmosphere away from the main tourist drag of Copacabana. We particularly enjoyed the garden with its views of Pao Azucar and the bay - if you rise early enough you will be treated to a spectacular multi-coloured sunrise. The lap-pool in the garden is handy to work off the pounds gained at the churascarias and kilo restaurants. Staff were cheerful and very helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely go back again.

We stayed in Quinta Rosa in May 2011 over a long week end and were quite (not to say very) disapointed by the quality of the room/mini-appartment we got. It did not look anything like the pictures (apart from the bathroom) and was quite dark and humid (located in a sort of basement). The premises were not particularly well looked after and although the few people we met were friendly enough, we cannot say that they were overly present or service minded. Very overpriced in relation to what it is!

Dear Client,

We feel we need to respond your commnets, so this way we have the opportunity to defend ourselves.

Indeed, your comments do not reflect in any way a real opinion on our Pousada, we would like to inform you that we have big rooms exactly how it shows on our website pictures. And there is no basement around or even closer to the rooms.
