What an awesome guest house/hostel Luiz runs. Not one complaint about anything. We came and went as we pleased, they made breakfast every morning with fresh fruits. Luiz is a genuine nice man. He was taking other guests on tours and out and about. I'll be coming back for the price!

I live in São Paulo but I usually spend weekends in Rio for enjoying this beautiful city. Unfortunately prices of hotels at South Zone (Leblon, Ipanema, Copacabana,etc) are becoming more and more expensive but this is the area that tourists generally stay cause it is where most famous beaches and restaurantes are located and this area is much more fun...

Luiz's B & B is amazing. When travelling, I often prefer a family-run establishment not to feel like a tourist and this was no disappointment. The B & B is located in a traditional first floor flat in Leblon, Rio's most respectable and conservative neighbourhood. It's only a two-minute walk from the iconic Leblon beach, a similar distance to the... More

Furthermore, the breakfast is delicious with fresh juices and... More

This is a fantastic location only blocks from the LeBlon Beach with many restaurants and bars within walking distance. The rooms are simple but clean and comfortable. Breakfast is included: ham, mozzarella, fresh Portugese rolls with butter and jams, fresh squeezed juice and at least three kinds of fruit plus coffee which starts your morning off right!

“All rooms are decent, but plain. The room out front has an astonishing balcony, but is also somewhat noisy due to a popular bar directly below. If you prefer silence, ask for one of the rooms in the rear.”
