The Bed & Breakfast is really charming. Rob’s place feels authentic a little bit away from the heat and noise of Rio while not being that far away (10 mins walk to center of Botafogo) and easily accessible by Uber. Rob is very kind and will spend time with you trying to help you at its best to make your stay in Rio memorable. Breakfasts are good. Everything is fresh!
We really had a fantastic time. There’s not much we didn’t like about this place. Just note that planes are flying by early in the morning so it is sporadically noisy but it really didn’t bother us that much!
Rob was very nice and prepared. He really knows the city and where to go. The place is a quiet paradise in a hectic city.
Richard and Robin greeted us with a smile and a very warm welcome. The breakfast served was outstanding and the fresh juice was to die for. Highly recommend this property
Centrally located, O Veleiro was easy to get to the more touristy spots with a taxi, while being close to the restaurants and bars in Botafogo. The accommodation was clean and comfortable with a lovely pool/garden area with basic kitchen facilities (great for enjoying evening drinks and snacks). Our host was welcoming with plenty of facts and humourous stories and provided us with delicious breakfasts (a different freshly squeezed fruit juice every morning!).
Rob and Richard are great hosts! Their accommodation is located in a very beautiful and calm place, close to the nature but at the same time 3 minutes by car from the center of Botafogo where we were able to find good restaurants, drugstores and etc.
There’s nothing we didn’t like to be mentioned. It was a very pleasant weekend!
