You can get a cab at SDU to get here, make sure you get a metered taxi and not the special airport cab. It shouldn't be more than R$20,00. There is not a subway Station in the airport.

The stay with Evandro and Leo was great. Both are really nice and helping. Provide information and a helped even in difficult situations. Can only recommend. Location on the hill is just perfect for city exploring. The house has its romantic charm. Impressive wie from the terrasse. But don't expect 100% fit with shown pictures to prevent disappoing. I was more than satisfied and will come again if possible.
Buena acogida y recomendaciones oportunas.
I had a great time staying with Evandro and Léo. The area is nice and feels safe. Its close to both Lapa and Santa Teresa. My room was great, and had a lovely view. Evandro and Léo are both very helpful and nice. I could not have had a better stay! Just for information, it can be god to know that if you planning on being at the beach all the time, the location might feel a bit afar. This is more for exploring Rio as a city, going to salsaclubs, museums and every once in a while, the beach. Also, its in a hilly area and the room has no AC which means you sweat a lot if you walk. Its not far, but uphill. However, in terms of location, pleasentness and charm, this is a very good place to stay in Rio. I had a great time and I'm very satisfied.
I had an excellent experience at Evandro and Leo's place. The place is located in walking distance to Lapa and all the nightlife excitements it has to offer. Centro is also walkable within 30 minutes or so.
The view of Rio and the Cathedral from the common living area is great. Evandro provided food and refreshments. There is also a Mundial grocery store within walking distance. I was allowed to smoke a cigar on the outdoor area while having a great time chatting with the other visitors.
You will need to climb up a few flights of stairs or to drive up into Santa Theresa to get to the B&B. For me, this was a positive part of the charms and experience. Just don't expect wheelchair access :)
I really enjoyed my stay. I had other accommodations in Rio that did not work out and had to make a last minute same-day reservation at Evandro's.
Next time I'm in Rio, this will be my first choice.
Leo e Evandro foram muito atenciosos sempre que precisamos, e nos receberam muito bem. O quarto é ótimo, limpo e com uma cama boa. Casa fácil de achar, mas um pouco cansativo de chegar a pé, por ser uma subida muito ingrime. No geral, muito boa estadia!
If you travel to Rio, please treat yourself to an authentic Carioca experience. I am a 70 year old retired teacher, and Evandro and Leo welcomed me with a true welcome and hospitality. The bario , Santa Theresa, is somewhat removed from the energy of CENTRO Rio and the beaches, but that is the beauty! You come home to a tasteful, beautiful setting in a very safe and authentic neighborhood. I loved every minute. Honestly!
Leo, his mother and Edvandro
were very helpful and made us feel very much at home. A wonderful family to stay with. The room we were in had an amazing view of the city and the place is near shopping and restaurants in Lapa.
