The Blue House in Santa Teresa is really nice, well located, near Largo do Guimaraes, great culture, in a silent place, full of nature, near downtown, Lapa and Gloria. The room has a double bed, great for a couple, also for a single person! GRATITUDE
Santa Teresa is a cultural place. A lot of music, arts, bars, restaurants, there is one cinema and some shops of handicraft. The room is in the Blue House, very silent, with a lot of nature, birds and sometimes we have the luck to see little monkeys on the trees! Great for tourists, students and workers of all ages. The room is confortable, for one or two persons, with good double bed, and a ceiling fan. There's a desk, a chair and a TV, with cable TV. It's a good house, with two floors and two bathrooms. Internet WI-FI available! Great speed. You can use the kitchen and use the laundry machine. You can share the meals with us, or do your own, as you prefer. There are two hammocks at the varanda. Great for relaxing. Very familiar place. We have a dog, named Tsu. Gratitude. Enjoy.
The house is near Largo do Guimarães. By taxi, you can come by Rua Monte Alegre (begins at Rua do Riachuelo) or by Rua Cândido Mendes (Glória). You have to get to Largo do Guimarães, where Ladeira do Castro begins, and go down the street. It's in the middle of the street at the Blue House!!!! By bus, you can get at Lapa 06, 07 and 14. You get down at Largo do Guimarães and take a 5 min walk down the street. You can also get a mototaxi at Gloria or Lapa. You can also come walking up the street by Rua do Riachuelo, in front of the supermarket Mundial. You're welcome. GRATITUDE!!
Interaction with Guests
I speak four languages (portuguese, english, french and spanish)! Love travelling around, knowing other people and universes, different cultures. I always have a lot of conection with the guests... Usually they become friend of my friends!! I'm a Yoguini.... We're all one... Love and gratitude***
Good neighborhood, very brazilian people. Normally the place is quiet and we hear the birds, dogs and sounds of the nature. Sometimes on the weekends the neighboors do parties... it's ok... Good music! During Carnival, the party is all over Rio, but we still can have some peace in the house, and be near the samba!!
The house is near Largo do Guimarães, going up the street, 10 min walking. From there you can go down the other side of the hill and 10 more minutes you're at metro station Gloria. If you just go down the street you get to Riachuelo Street, near Lapa, where you can easily get bus to the beach and other parts of Rio.
Other Things to Note
I would prefer if people don't smoke cigarette in the house and don't cook meat. Gratitude***

The house is lovely and her dog is vey friendly! We were hosted by her friend Vikram who was great. The location is very trendy however it is hard to find a taxi that will take you there due to the steep hill..
Amala es una muy buena persona, siempre dispuesta a ayudar y muy acogedora. El lugar queda en un barrio tranquilo, 100% recomendado
Small room with everything you need. A bit hard to find, but close to the center of beautiful Santa Teresa. Amala was a very nice and helpful host. Gratitude!
Thank you Amala for letting us stay with you. You are the best host! I had the best time in Rio.
The apartment very nice, tidy and clean, located in the magical neighborhood of Santa Teresa.

I really enjoyed my stay at Amala’s house. I felt very welcome and Amala is a great hostess - especially if you haven’t been to Rio before. I felt completely safe in the area. Thank you!

Amala is my initiation name at yoga. It's hard to describe oneself because we are so many things at the same time... I love the nature and search seing the divine in all beings.I have travelled a bit, speak 4 languages and love flowing by the universes...
I worked for 13 years as a journalist, than changed all life and since 2005 I'm a Yoga instructer. Also do Ayurvedic Massage, Tradicional Thai Massage, Reiki Usui and Karuna Reiki. I'd say I'm an agent of peace culture. GRATITUDE***
