    Everything was perfect, great location and very friendly staff! Clean and calm area. Barbara & Cecile were wonderful hosts, we have traveled a lot around the world but these 2 are real gems! Always trying to help, give you ideas and inspire you on things to do in Rio. The place is located just close to the famous stairs! Good restaurants nearby and cool atmosphere. For those in search of a cosy and warm place without all the crowd this is for you! Stay in Rio just like a local! A taste of PARADISE!

    Clean room, really good size and plenty of storage. We had a balcony which was great for evenings. Host (Barbara) is lovely, really helpful and gives you lots of tips about Rio. Breakfast is simple but perfect. Fruit, yoghurt, granola etc and eggs if you would like, really tasty. Shared bathroom was not an issue and didn’t have any times when we really needed it and it was in use. Thanks Barbara we would definitely stay again! (Added bonus, there is a very friendly local cat, Melissa, who is frequently in the garden looking for a stroke)

    Amazing view, very good breakfast, clean and comfy rooms, perfect location to explore Rio (just a 2 minute walk to the famous Selaron Steps) and the most important thing: Barbara was probably the best host we've had during our trip, she really is taking care of her guests. For example, she organised our airport transfer even though she was in a hurry :-)

    Barbara was VERY helpful assisting us in places to see & organising transport Uber etc. VALUE FOR MONEY WAS 10/10!! Breakfast INCLUDED was very nice & tasty. Thanks Barbara (at the end of the day it’s the people that really matter).
