Why we recommend Hotel Santa Teresa

“Hotel Santa Teresa is one of Rio’s most stylish boutique hotels and a wonderful alternative to the high rise beachfront hotels. The area houses the Portuguese colonial heart of the city, great for those who like to explore by foot and want to discover the historic winding streets and colonial mansions. Enjoy the view over Rio’s rooftops towards Guanabara Bay from the pool deck, or head to one of the many authentic restaurants nearby.”
