Hello, we are a couple Isa & Paolo, Our house is a small B&B localized in the smart, green and historical district of Santa Teresa.
Isa and Paolo were amazing host. Great house, amazing breakfast and above all very informed of Rio and it's happenings. We truly enjoyed our couple of days with them. Santa Tersea is a beautiful neighborhood with tons of amazing architecture and history.
Great place with nice location. Walking distance to Lapa, Gloria, Santa Teresa and Centro. From Gloria metro is is easy to go the beaches and visit other places in Rio. Breakfast is delicious. Isa and Paolo are very nice and gives you great tips and directions what to do.
The room was just as beautiful as in the pictures.
I stayed 5 nights: all was excellent. The room and the flat are beautiful as in pictures. The house is very well located, close to Lapa, downtown, metro (to go to Copochabana and Ipanema) and tons of bus lines.
The breakfast was marvelous: coffè, tropical fruits, juices, homemade yoghurt and a lot of other delicious things.
At last but not least Paolo and Isa, they were amazing hosts, always helpful in giving us suggestions or help us for everything we need.
Thank again Isa and Paolo
We really enjoyed our trip in rio, and Isa&Paolo's home is very comfortable.
Home made Breakfast every morning, delicious. Paolo gives always good advices about things to do in Rio.
We wish we will come back one day.
tivemos um final de semana maravilhoso e ainda de brinde a companhia da Isa e do Paulo
só por (email hidden) Rio já valeria a pena, mas além de tudo a casa desse casal brilhante é linda e aconchegante, confortável, bem localizada e familiar, não tenho uma vírgula pra dizer de ruim, obrigado por tudo!
My fiance and I stayed with Isa & Paolo for 4 days/nights and had a wonderful time. The lodgings are clean and comfortable, and the hosts are beyond gracious as they invite you into their home and very delicious kitchen for breakfast. We enjoyed our many conversations with Isa & Paolo over coffee - it was a treat to listen to their insights on life and the city where they live. Paolo arranged for taxis to pick us up and drop us off when we needed them. In the evenings we did take taxis home instead of walking from the metro - as the area is not as safe at night. During the day we walked everywhere. Their house is very close to the Gloria metro and 15 min walking to restaurants and cafes in the bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa. If you are not a fan of uphill walking, and if you prefer a more modern/polished, or beach accessible residence, then you may want to check outside the neighborhood of Santa Teresa. But for those interested in the history of the city and staying with very lovely people - this could be a great fit!
Our stay at Isa´s and Paolo´s place was superb! Our bedroom and bathroom were very clean, nicely decorated, well illuminated and ventilated. The house is very well located, since it is walking distance from Lapa, downtown, metro and tons of bus lines. Starting the day with a delicious and very complete breakfast was great. But the true highlight was Isa and Paolo themselves. We had tons of logistic questions since we wanted to go shopping, surfing, museums, samba rehearsals, Corcovado, eating authentic Brazilian food, etc. etc… and they happily took the time to give us VERY complete directions and tips for all of them. But not only that, it was great to learn from them about the carioca customs, history and culture. We can definitely say that our trip to Rio was multiplied by our hosts.
If you have the opportunity to book that place, do it quickly!
Indeed, first it's perfectly located in a safe place beetween Santa Theresa and Lapa and close to the subway station to visit all other places in Rio.
Second, the room is nice, very clean and confortable.
Third, the breakfast is excellent with home made Bresilian specialities, fresh fruits, cakes...
Last and not the least, is Paolo (speaking fluent english) and Isa are just perfect hosts.
We were so nicely welcomed in their home, helped for airport transfer, travel advices in Rio and arround in Brazil.
Always available, it was a great pleasure to share with them bresilian culture, experiences and life.
This place is for sure our best AirBnB experience!
Do not hesitate, just book it!!!!!
Great house, lovely people, delicious breakfast. Santa Teresa has many beautiful restaurants and cafes and is a great alternative to the hustle and bustle of Lapa. Unfortunately there was no water at the house for 2 days during my stay but Paolo & Isa did everything they could to ensure I could have a shower, flush the toilet and drink by arranging visits to their neighbours and buying bottled water. I really enjoyed my stay, my only wish is it was longer and of course that the government had not interrupted the water supply!
We stayed for 1 week including our 2 year old son. And I would certainly go back to Isa and Paolo. Why?
Our stay felt like staying with family in Rio. The hospitality, excellent breakfast, the chats (in English) and their attention made our stay very pleasant!
Ideal situated accomodation of Paolo and Isa because it's close to public transport but located in a quite tranquil non touristic area. Although we walked to some restaurants at night in Santa Teresa.
Ótimo papo, boas cervejas. Volte sempre!
Eu e minha noiva fomos ao RJ para o Rock in Rio e ficamos no 37B&B, perto de ônibus, metrô e, taxis, a toda hora que precisar. O lugar foi tão bom que voltamos uma semana depois. O café da manhã é incrível, o quarto e banheiro são privativos, em uma casa sossegada e tranquila. Em outras palavars: PERFEITO.
Me and my fioncé were in Rio de Janeiro for Rock in Rio 2011 and we stayed at the 37 B&B - Isa&Paolo, near for the bus station, subway, cabs anytime you need. The place was so nice that we came back in a few days ago. The breakfast is awesome, the bad and the WC are private, in a quitely house. In other way to say: PERFECT.
Isa & Paolo are very nice hosts. The breakfast was excellent with lots of fresh fruits, homemade yogurt, freshly squeezed juices and so on. Extremely helpful, everything you could ask, at any time day or night. Interesting area, in the middle of the action, especially if you love the nightlife. Nice, clean room. Metro is very close. I would love to meet up with Isa and Paolo.
We were lucky to find this place. Stayed in this lovely house for a carnival period in March 2011 and had an amazing experience! The place and the owners are wonderful! The room is nice and clean, with an avocados hanging in the windows, the breakfast is better than restaurant's one plus the location is close to the metro. Places like this are very hard to find, so don't hesitate.
