The most welcoming owner and staff who were so helpful and friendly. Nothing at all was too much trouble for them. A very personal service from them. Great location with lots of bars and restaurants near by. Easy access to all of Rio with Uber who were very cheap compared to UK prices . Charming colonial style mansion with an eclectic array of furnishings. Very chilled atmosphere to return home to each day. Fabulous views over the bay from the room we had. We absolutely loved our stay and would stay again.
Breakfast was very good but slightly on the expensive side but there are places to have breakfast nearby if you want to eat with the locals.. a lovely experience we found. We missed a couple of bottles of complimentary water as you can’t drink the tap water. No tea and coffee facilities in room.
Staff is superb. Accommodations are outstanding. Great location. Strong WiFi.
I have no criticisms.
The outdoor area with the pool and the view from the garden as well as the balcony upstairs and the big room are very beautiful. The staff was friendly and helpful.
The room we got looked completely different from the room that is showed in the pictures. We expected a big room with a view but the room was in the basement, very small, had a wall next to the window a d no view also on the other window. Also we could only sleep until 7 am because a family was staying in the room above us and due to the wooden floors it was extremely noisy.
We stayed at Mama Ruisa at both ends of the trip. The place is a delight. St Theresa is a great area to be in, away from the hustle and bustle of the centro or the beaches but easy to get to by tram. The boutique hotel is colonial in style and the rooms we stayed in were exquisite. Above all the staff were engaging, friendly and willing to offer advice and guidance on everything. Special thanks to Valeria and Remy our hosts and to Rafael and all the other staff for making our trip so memorable
Valeria and the rest of the team were so friendly and helpful. They very kindly accommodated my request for champagne and roses in the room upon arrival for our 20th Wedding anniversary and were a wealth of knowledge and recommendations in both the local area and Rio more broadly. The room and house were beautiful and we loved breakfast on the private terrace with accompanying birdsong and marmosets. Would recommend without reservation to anyone :)
Nothing was great
