We had wonderful hospitality from Adam and Paulo! The room was large and clean with a nice view of Corcovado and the city. Breakfasts were tasty Brazilian fare, including loads of healthy fresh tropical fruit. Adam's knowledge of the city and tips for getting around and going out were indispensable. We enjoyed breakfasts and outings with our fellow guests from Scotland and the US, including a sunset hike up the Sugarloaf led by Adam. All in all a wonderful stay!

We enjoyed our stay in Rio and thanks to Adam and Natalia for being so helpful in planning some logistics about our trip to Brazil. The room was a right size for a family of 4 and we liked that services ( bus, restaurant) were close by. The view was impressive. The place was clean and well maintained and breakfast was great. We will definitely be back if coming back to Rio on another trip and we recommend this place for other travellers. Thanks for a real nice stay!
