Everything are perfect , Adriana is a nice host who is so true and warm . She give me many advices and surprise !
Gerthrudes B&B is somewhat of a misnomer- it should read Adriana’s Boutique B&B. It is a calming, beautiful oasis within the hustle and bustle of inner Rio. My room was spacious, nicely decorated, had a quality bathroom and opened up to a lush garden/pool view. There is a great, common lounge with spectacular views to Central Rio and Sugarloaf Mountain. The buffet breakfast was delicious and included some special treats. Adriana is a delightful host and takes great pride in providing guests with a memorable stay. The location itself, Santa Teresa, is an inner, medium-density hillside area (as distinct from the lower level high-rise developments) and has a distinct bohemian character.
Nothing that I disliked but a warning to the less mobile. For those without a private car, there are two ways to access the B&B - a steep 800-metre walk up from Gloria metro station on rough cobble stones. Alternatively, carry a mobile phone and call a very cheap ride-share service.
Everything. The views are amazing and the staff was very welcoming! I wish I could have stayed longer
I would have booked the room on the top, first floor. There are many stairs and also our room was next the dining room and the pool. Convenient but a bit loud.
This property is super well decorated and has many cozy areas to hang out or read a book while marveling at its beautiful view. Everything is very clean, organized and the breakfast was delicious. Location was perfect for what we needed: quiet, yet close to the main tourist attractions. In addition, Santa Barbara is an area filled with trendy bars and restaurants as well as cute boutique shops to explore. Very bohemian. Last but not least, the hostess and her team were very attentive and kind. (Suggestion: play some bossa nova or MPB during breakfast, it will add to the amazing feeling of being back in Rio’s golden age days)
Beautiful room....beautiful setting....stunning views.....gorgeous breakfast and very nice staff. Thanks to our hostess for all the advice on where to eat and where to go....made our last couple of days in Rio extra special.
