Mama Ruisa is a very charming hotel: close to the Gloria metro, with a glorious view to the Rio bay, it is exquisitely decorated. Full of art and antiques, quiet and inspiring, the place is gorgeous. Service is swift and very nice. Highly recommended!

Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors can now stroll through this area to view magnificent mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a former mansion turned museum which houses works by prominent Brazilian modern artists.
