Brilliant hotel, conveniently located close to Copa and Ipanema beaches. Great interiors, brilliant bed, excellent food, super-attentive staff. Welcome drink on arrival was a friendly touch. Breakfast in the morning varied but all amazing, well-priced and set you up until at least late lunch! Any return stay in Rio will be with Casa Mosquito

We stayed here in January at the beginning of a 2.5 mth trip/honeymoon in South America. The street and entrance when you arrive might make you question your decision to book here but it is a very safe area and a beautiful property inside with great views from the front porch. The decor and experience are a perfect reflection of...

First of all, the B&B is currently a construction site. Shortly after 7 AM, some fifteen workers swarm onto the premisses speaking rather loudly. The hammering and drilling follows around 8 AM on the new building being built on the property. When I brought this to the manager's attention, he vehemently denied it: the work was definitely not starting before...

Dear guest, Thank you for taking time to make your observations regarding your recent stay in february 14. We are very pleased that you enjoyed the decoration of Le Bristol, and our overall service.

Just a great place. Beautiful rooms, property, and view.

The house is beyond beautiful. The staff are extremely helpful. The location is authentically local while still perfectly safe. So puzzled by the few negative comments I've read. People complaining about cost and location - both things that can be researched before hand surely? - and don't forget, this is marketed as a 'b&b'. The standard is superb, and as...
