Check In
  • First, the room is lovely. Very clean, airy, bright and spacious with a comfortable, large double bed, leading on to a balcony with a spectacular view accross to the Pao de Azucar and the sea beyond, to the left, and the Cristo to the right.

    Secondly, the location, while not in the heart of Santa Teresa, is very good. There are a couple of bus routes which stop right outside, one leading to Santa Teresa centre (5 mins) then on to Lapa/Central the other to Largo de Machado and the tube line (10 mins). The views are magnificent from the road leading up to the Plazeres favela (really nice people, we found, and friendly with Adam)

    Finally, and most importantly, both Adam and Paulo are great. Paulo is welcoming, gentlemanly, warm and courteous, and dishes up great eggs for the filling breakfast. Adam was an absolute star, going out of his way to help us out, answer questions, fix problems, and genuinely wanted us to enjoy Rio to the full. It was a real pleasure and a privilege to get to know him, and hopefully we'll meet again in London.
    Strongly recommend.

  • Très bonne adresse dans un quartier paisible et agréable. Vue imprenable sur la ville de la terrasse de la chambre que nous occupions (spacieuse ). Nos hôtes ont été très accueillants.
    Adam est de bon conseil et les déjeuners de Paolo sont exquis.
    A recommander

  • We had a simply wonderful stay at Paulo's characterful mansion on the hills of Laranjeiras. The house is general is very artsy as Paulo is a creative person with every fiber (ask to see his atelier where he designs handbags) - which was a brilliant change to the many unimaginatively designed pousadas we had stayed in before.

    The breakfast is great (fruit salad, warm bread rolls, cheese & ham, scrambed eggs, fruit juice and coffee), but what stood out most for us was the incredible view from the balcony. You can almost touch Christ the Redeemer, you have a great view of the surrounding greens and can see a large chunk of sea including the Sugarloaf - it's magic.

    Paulo, you know how much we enjoyed our stay and we will always come back if we are in Rio again.

    All the best,
    Paul & Corina

  • I stayed in the large beautiful room at Paulo and Adam in September for 6 nights. The room is huge and exactly how it looks in the pictures. The view is amazing. It is well located for exploring Santa Theresa with its nice bars and restaurants. It is a short taxi ride from Lapa where you can experience Samba clubs and Rio nightlife.

    There is a bus that stops outside the accommodation which takes you to the metro where you can get down to the beaches of Ipanema and Copacabanna. The total journey is 30 minutes.

    Adam was very helpful with tips of restaurants and places to go in Rio. Adam is originally from the US so he is able to give you great tips.

    Paulo cooks a fantastic breakfast scrambled eggs, fresh fruit juice, coffee, bread with cheese and ham.

    I really enjoyed my stay at Adam and Paulo's place and thoroughly recommend it.

  • Nous avons adoré Rio et le Brésil et c'est en grande partie grâce à l'accueil et la disponibilité que nous ont réservé Adam et Paulo dans leur grande et belle maison de Santa Teresa, qu'ils cherchent à rendre plus confortable pour leurs hôtes chaque jour.
    Un grand merci à vous deux: Paulo pour tes bon petits déjeuners et ta gentillesse, Adam pour ta disponibilité et l'ensemble des services (dieu sait qu'ils sont nombreux) que tu nous as rendus afin de rendre ce voyage plus facile pour nous.
    Il est évident que nous retournerons chez vous lors de notre prochaine escapade au Brésil.
    On espère vous voir très prochainement en France ou en Suisse!
    Mil besos!
    ps: sorry Adam but you know my english... that's why i prefered to say it in french... to understand, now you need to learn our language :) Good luck!

  • My friends and I had a wonderful time in Rio. Paulo is a great host and his palace-like home is awesome. The view is truly beautiful: from the terrace you can see the Christ, the Sugar Loaf and the sea... unbelievable. Breakfast couldn't be better and the neighbourhood is safe. And there is always a parking place right in front of the house. I'll stay there again my next time in Rio.
