The guesthouse “CASA BABILÔNIA” is situated in the beautiful district Leme in the south of Rio de Janeiro. Due to its location on the way up to the Favela Babilônia, our guest house provides an exceptional ocean view.
The Ladeira (way, street) at which our guesthouse is to be found at number 42, carries the name of the famous composer and samba musician Ary Barroso. His former house is well-preserved and just around the corner.
For our guests who are simply enjoying their vacation by relaxing and exploring Rio we provide well furnished rooms, partly with
bathroom and air condition. Our patio, covering the whole guest house, is a beautiful place to meet and relax.
A priority of “CASA BABILÔNIA“ is music. We provide spaces for music workshops, advanced trainings and practice. It is further possible to offer or visit workshops, on how to build instruments like Berimbaus or other small Brasilian instruments.
The famous beach of Copacabana is accessible within 10 minutes by walking.

Our experience was better than expected. Sabina and Dario and gracious and welcoming hosts. Breakfast was plentiful: cereals, meat and cheese, fresh-baked bread, jam, fresh banana or avocado smoothies, juices, yogurt.
Our room was clean and the beds very comfortable. The neighborhood celebrated the World Cup each evening and we felt safe and welcome there. Sabino & Dario recommended good food at local (neighborhood) restaurants and in Copacabana, and helped to direct us to the best bus or taxi to the tourist destinations.
The view on the roof is just like the photo, but 360 degrees of water, mountain and community.
We loved staying with Dario and Sabina, and hope we will see them again one day.
Dario and Sabina were the perfect hosts. They catered for our every need almost immediately, such a great welcome to Rio. The house was fantastic - very clean and colourful and the private rooms and open living spaces give you the freedom to relax yet enjoy quiet comfort when needed. You could be very independent if you wanted to be. The breakfast was excellent with a great selection of tasty home-made and fresh food. The rooftop has amazing views (Dario setup the TV for the football for us) and we really couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, I would happily recommend this to anyone, young or old. Dario and Sabina were very warm and friendly. The favela was very friendly, felt safe at all times, with a great mix of locals, I enjoyed a great burger at the local bar where the family and their friends were very welcoming to tourists.
Todo bien, muy atentos.
Casa Babilonia est un endroit idéal pour séjourner à Rio.
Un accueil généreux et chaleureux dans une ambiance calme et agréable.
L'hébergement est soigné et corresponds au descriptif; Sabina et Dario se mettent en quatre et le petit déjeuner proposé est remarquable, grâce à leur savoir faire (produits fait maison, bio et à volonté). La plage de Copacabana est à deux pas, les connexions vers les principaux sites touristiques sont nombreuses et les informations distillées par les hôtes sont précises et précieuses. Une adresse tout simplement idéale pour les amoureux du Brésil.

Accueil très sympathique. Les propriétaires sont disponibles et serviables.
Très bien entretenu.
Le petit déjeuner est très bien servi. Sabina fait elle même le pain, les gâteaux, les confitures... C'est très bon!
Nous n'hésiterons pas à recommander cet endroit.
Casa Babilonia was an incredible place to stay. Exactly how it was described on airbnb is exactly how we found the place. I am very impressed with the hospitality by Dario and Sabina Schaffer!!! They were wonderful hosts and treated us with respect and much much care! The facilities were clean and accessible. The view was breathtaking. It was located in a prime location. Only ten minute walk to the beach!! I felt safe and well taken care of. I cannot stress how wonderful casa Babilonia was and what an amazing experience I had. Thank you Dario and Sabina for everything you did for us. You will see us soon, someday.
