Relais & Chateaux Santa Teresa

Relais & Chateaux Santa Teresa Rating: 5.0 Pearls

Relais & Chateaux Santa Teresa is a historic mansion turned luxurious boutique hotel located on a former coffee plantation in Santa Teresa. It features gorgeous tropical decor, which includes bright cabanas in the lounge, lots of lush greenery (by the pool, on the grounds), tiled mosaics, and island-themed bed runners in the rooms. The lower-level rooms aren't quite as upscale as the rest of the hotel, but they do have sleek bathrooms, wood floors, flat-screen TVs, and a light, airy feel. Suites are higher-end, with extras such as four-poster beds of tropical wood, standalone tubs, and shady terraces. The hotel also features a gorgeous spa, a rooftop pool with sweeping views of the city, and a restaurant serving delicious French-influenced Brazilian cuisine.
Casa Mosquito

Casa Mosquito Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Casa Mosquito offers a quiet hideaway on the slopes of Ipanema, within walking distance of the world-famous beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema. It has only nine spacious, bright suites decorated in a mix of colonial, modern, and contemporary styles. All rooms have balconies with spectacular Rio de Janeiro views of Sugar Loaf Mountain, the Twin Peaks, and the coast. While the small, intimate hotel is certainly charming, it lacks some of the amenities common to larger properties, and has neither a gym nor 24-hour room service.
Casa Beleza

Casa Beleza Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The three-pearl Casa Beleza offers a tropical hideaway from the sometimes overwhelming and crowded beach scene of Copacabana and Ipanema. It's located in the bohemian Art District of Santa Teresa, often called the Montmarte of Rio. The mansion was built in the 1930s and was once a former residence of the governor of Rio de Janeiro. Today, the guesthouse offers four well-decorated guest rooms. The owners live at the main building and they are helpful and knowledgeable about the local tourist, music, and art scene. The house is surrounded by a lush tropical garden with occasional parrots, toucans, and monkeys passing by the outdoor swimming pool. Free breakfast and Wi-Fi helps to keep costs low.
Villa Laurinda

Villa Laurinda Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Villa Laurinda is a stylish and romantic bed-and-breakfast in the bohemian Santa Teresa district of Rio de Janeiro. The mid-range property was originally built in 1888 and has been lovingly restored by an artistic Brazilian and Swiss couple. The villa itself is surrounded by a lush tropical garden and has a good size swimming pool. Four fan-cooled rooms (with shared bathrooms) and four suites (with private bathrooms) are available. Breakfast is included in the room rate and free Wi-Fi is available throughout. This is an excellent choice for couples who want to save money but avoid the hostel scene.
Hotel Regina

Hotel Regina Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Hotel Regina is an historical mid-range hotel located in Catete, just a block away from Flamengo Park and the beach. It originally opened in 1922 and was the scene of local high society for its first 20 years; a renovation in 2008 brought modern updates. Today, the six floor property offers 117 quiet and clean rooms in three different categories, all come with a flat-screen TV and minibar. A sumptuous buffet breakfast is served in the Goya Restaurant -- included in the room rate -- and a la carte meals are available for lunch and dinner. The rooftop features a spa, steam room, and a tiny fitness center -- but no pool.
Manga Hostel

Manga Hostel Rating: 2.0 Pearls

Opened in 2012, this hip, simple hostel -- located in the heart of the lively Lapa district -- has become one of the most popular spots for budget travelers and backpackers. It is located in an old historical building that has character, high ceilings, and a nice courtyard. Room options include those with private or shared baths and they vary in size, but all have air-conditioning. Amenities are few, but the common areas are cozy and the room rate includes Wi-Fi. The hostel only accepts guests 18 and above.
Bonita Ipanema

Bonita Ipanema Rating: 2.0 Pearls

The two-pearl Bonita Ipanema opened in 2008, one block away from Praza General Osorio, in the heart of Ipanema on a quiet side-street location in an historical building. It was once home to the composer of "The Girl from Ipanema." Today, the hostel offers 25 simple private rooms (some with a private bathroom) and four dormitories. Rooms are basic and tiny with obvious damage, especially in the bathrooms. Wi-Fi and breakfast are free. Guests can cook in the communal kitchen or party with inexpensive drinks from the bar next to the small outdoor pool. The majority of guests are young backpackers on a budget and the nightly noise level is indicative of the crowd.
