Profile: Santa Teresa

Profile: Santa Teresa

Santa Teresa has been known to attract artists, scholars, and politicians. This central Rio neighborhood sits atop Santa Teresa hill, and has been home to the U.S. Consulate General Rio de Janeiro since 1971.

If you’re just visiting, explore the boutiques, picturesque streets, mosaic steps, and paintings, but stop every now and then to enjoy an appetizer or a cocktail at open-air restaurants such as Aprazivel. Tucked away in a jungle-like setting, Aprazivel overlooks the city and features Brazilian favorites like fried corn-flour polenta rissolle stuffed with spicy minced meat as well as goat, lamb, and fish dishes.

  • 8.0.Very good

    A very different Rio de Janeiro hotel

    I chose this hotel for its proximity to the convention center. I had not realized that this hotel was part of the Accor chain of boutique hotels, very classy residence in a historic building. Being historic, it does not have an elevator. Being on a hill there are further steps down to the very select restaurant also used for breakfast. A lot of charm, very peaceful place in a noisy city, but I was not comfortable venturing into the streets around, a mix of classic building and run-down places. The view of the city and surroundings is stunning, but to get there your taxi or Uber needs to navigate cobblestone-covered winding and steep streets, something that gets old pretty quickly. There were no neighborhood restaurants, and the hotel restaurant is very chic, nouvelle cuisine (small portions) and expensive. The room, bedding, bathroom and amenities were first-class. The wi-fi was not secure, and there were few power sockets in the room for computer and other devices. So to summarize a mixed experience of a unique property with high-end appointments in a different part of Rio (i.e. not Copacabana) but with some limitations and oddities that come with the concept.

    This is lovely converted coffee plantation with a beautiful pool and related bar and restaurant. The hotel is close to the main commercial area of Santa Teresa and a tram stop to downtown.

    Trying too hard

    Great time but hotel is overpriced, poolside food is terrible, and they charged us for milk for our baby which I find appalling!

    Oasis in Rio!

    We had a great stay at this Rio oasis! Though the location was just outside of the main city center/attractions, we loved everything about this hotel! From the atmosphere, decor, facilities to exceptional staff, we had an amazing stay and would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Rio and looking for a special experience!
