Great Accommodation in Rio

Reviewed 22 december, 2016

A small quaint B+B style hotel in a beautiful part of the city. The staff was great and the breakfast good. I can not reccomend it if you have a difficulty climbing stairs. NO ELEVATOR. It is also located at long way from a lot of the city's attractions

Nice view but not great, don't expect luxury

Reviewed 24 august, 2016

I really liked the look of this place, was old and there was a lot of history. Like another reviewer has said, We really wanted to like this place, but we are glad we did not stay more than 2 nights, we would have been too exhausted to enjoy our Olympic holiday. It has a nice view and is opposite one of the best restaurants in Rio called the Aprazivel. Bedroom - Lots of storage for everyone in the room. We had the noisiest bed Ive ever heard in my life, we could not move without a huge creaking from the bed, very annoying when one wakes to use the loo! The bathroom was unhygenic as they did not do any cleaning and we had water come up from under the toilet every time we flushed, therefore were walking on toilet water. Also you must be aware that that you cannot put toilet paper in the toilet but in the bin. Staff - were lovely, especially the chef and the Maria the Manager. Cleaning staff very honest as they returned things we left if the room (just incase you are worried about safety of your things) Unfortunately, we would not return here.

Felt like a Hostel - Very Thin Walls

Reviewed 22 august, 2016

I wanted to like this place, but after many nights of restless sleep, I would not stay here again. My boyfriend and I came during the second week of the Olympics and stayed for 5 nights. Surprisingly, the crowd here was a bit older / family oriented, so the Olympic atmosphere that one might expect of meeting people from different countries and watching games together was somewhat lacking. What I can say is that after staying in two previous places in the Amazon and Salvador, Villa Teresa certainly had the best Wifi connection that I encountered. The breakfast was quite average - some fresh fruit, a bolo, and the standard ham and cheese cold cuts and bread with someone making eggs for you if you asked. Be aware that if you are allergic to animals, do not stay here. We were unaware and no one advised us. My boyfriend is allergic and Villa Teresa has a cat and a dog. One night the cat was howling like a screaming child and it is very easy to hear as all of the doors and windows in the common areas of Villa Teresa are open to the outside. The dog is quiet but the neighborhood dogs were not. Every night and every morning, all the dogs in the neighborhood would collectively bark. I had difficulty falling asleep and/or was woken up by them along with the rooster and the birds. If you like this type of thing, you might find it charming. But unfortunately, after days full of Olympic events and traveling to and from the stadiums, we just wanted to sleep. On top of that, the walls are super thin - I can only speak for our room #6 on the third floor. But we were woken up by the hostel room, again that no one advised us we were staying next to which had 4 bunk beds for a total of 8 people, early in the morning by the men who would get up at 5/6AM to pray or by travelers packing up to leave. It certainly would have made us make a more informed decision had Maria told us we would be staying next to a hostel room and sharing the bathroom with them as well. She had initially offered us one of the bungalows, but thinking it separate from the main house, we thought our things might be safer in the main house. We might have opted for the bungalow knowing we would be next to a hostel room. Security was fine in Villa Teresa, but if you want a safe in your room, don't stay here either as they do not offer this. No one comes into your room as there is no housekeeping unless you request it. The cleanliness of the bathrooms especially ones that are shared with a hostel room as the bathroom we were told to use was (even though we had a private room with a queen bed, we had to use a shared bathroom), could have definitely been better. If you have been to Brazil, you know that you do not flush toilet paper down the toilet. After a few people have used the bathroom, the garbage needs to be taken out not just once a day but multiple times a day - especially when you are sharing it with multiple people. This did not happen and the garbage was overflowing each day. I gave up on using this bathroom after a bandaid continued to hang out by the drain for over a day. I'm not sure this bathroom was ever sanitized with bleach or cleaning product. They just only seemed to take out the garbage. The sink countered continued to have toothpaste stains and water on the counter the entire length of my stay. The second floor seemed to have someone who was more attentive to cleaning the bathroom there or maybe just not as many people were using it. I opted to use that bathroom instead. The location is somewhat convenient as you can tell every cab driver to take you to Aprazivel the restaurant directly across the street which I recommend everyone who visits Rio should go to. It was packed every night during the Olympics and is one example of Brazil's culinary scene, not to mention it also has a great view and service. You do need to be mindful at night. Once when we came home from Lapa around 3AM, we took a yellow cab. A fellow yellow cab honked at our driver and informed him that there were robbers ahead. I do not speak Portuguese, but I do speak Spanish and tried to ask him if he could call the police and inform them to which I did understand that he told me," We are in Rio, not in Paris." He definitely got a little rattled but found a different route which had a police man on it and the police man told him it was fine and he got us home. Use Uber instead if coming home late, as the Yellow taxis stand out and people know they carry cash on them. For us, we felt like we paid a lot of money to stay in what basically just felt like a slightly nicer hostel. We met a nice couple from Minnesota who was celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary outside of the pousada who had stayed at this place and they only had lovely things to say so maybe our experience only reflects our room and our floor. The neighborhood is cute, but just not worth the inconvenience. I would probably stay in Jardim Botanico, Leblon, or Ipanema next time. Just easier to get around from those places.

Reviewed 24 january, 2016

We enjoyed our three day Stay over Sylvester very much at this Hotel. Nice Room, friendly helpfull staff and the location is just amazing. Also the breackfast was very good. Only minus point could be, that there is no air condition.

Best Place I stayed in RIo

Reviewed 2 january, 2016

I stayed here for few nights and it was just the place you'd like to stay in. You feel like at home, Maria the manager of the place is very helpful and chilled out. Place is clean and the best part if the view on RIO. There is also a swimming pool and it is 10 minutes away from LAPA which is the party area. The place is very class and noble, it was the former house of the Brazilian Ambassador in France. Worth a visit.
