Beautiful house, in a perfect location in Santa Teresa, just steps from Lapa. Perfect if you want to relax in Santa Teresa surrounded by beautiful houses and enjoy live Samba in Lapa! It is a beautiful property - quite a lot of steps to get there but definitely worth the exercise. If possible I would recommend not carrying too many bags for this part of the trip! The hosts are very helpful and kind, and they are there to make your stay enjoyable! They have a great sense of interior design - I was pleasantly surprised every morning how they displayed our lovely breakfast! When you stay there you will definitely see that the hosts have put a lot of effort into the property, it is truly an experience to stay there!
Claudio was a WONDERFUL host, my friend and me stayed there over New Years and it was FANTASTIC. Super clean and nice room, with a fridge and even room service. We got the most loving breakfast ever, all self made, with lots of fruits ;). If you have any questions regarding the Rio or you want to book some tours, Claudio is very helpful and will find you the best tour. If I will stay another time in Rio, I would definitely consider staying here again ;)
We stayed at Claudio and Gabriel's beautifully renovated home for 3 days and the experience was great from A to Z. The house itself is very tastefully redone with the guests' comfort in mind. The exterior living room, the pool area and the lush, perfectly maintained gardens make this a quiet little getaway in the middle of a big city. Both Claudio and Gabriel go beyond expectations with their suggestions and ideas of things to see. Claudio even drove our group to a restaurant one evening when we couldn't get a cab to pick us up. Santa Teresa is a gorgeous neighbourhood, off the beaten tourist track with lots of character (and hills). The big cherry on this sundae of a stay was the outstanding quality of the breakfast. The presentation of the food was magazine-worthy and the food itself was absolutely
sublime! Claudio and Gabriel are attentive to every last detail in all that they do for their guests and the breakfasts they serve are a shining example of this attention. Our stay was perfect.
It's easy to see why Casa Geranio is one of the top ranked boutique hotels on trip advisor. A beautifully restored house it's the perfect oasis just minutes from the city. Our hosts made our stay very special, preparing an amazing breakfast each morning and helping us navigate the city and anything else we needed. Their attention to detail was magnificent. Highly recommended, 5 stars!
Our stay at Casa geranio was awesome! Claudio and Gabriel are great men and hosts! We enjoyed our trip in Rio and absolutely recommend it! Thank you both!
Wow! Not only is the house comfortable, beautifully renovated, tastefully decorated, with a memorable breakfast... But what hosts! Charming, welcoming, helpful, present but discreet, Claudio and Gabriel really make this place special. Don't hesitate, go!
the property was amazing and the hosts were great. I was traveling with my daughter and she felt comfortable there and it was the best part of our stay in RIO. They were so helpful with directions and information. They helped to ensure our safety once we left the property by telling us which streets to avoid and exactly which restaurants to try. They serve up amazing breakfasts and I felt bad not eating some of the things I don't like. I got a one on one lesson on how to make a caiprinia so I could share with my friends at home. I wish I had stayed there our whole trip. Don't think twice about booking this beautiful house!
