Atendimento 5 estrelas
Local muito aconchegante, com visual espetacular e um atendimento 5 estrelas, graças à administradora Mônica e sua equipe. Bom café da manhã. Pena não ter restaurante próprio, servem apenas lanches. Mas nos indicaram alguns restaurantes próximos que faziam entrega. Além disso há a possibilidade de sair para aproveitar alguns bons restaurantes da região.

Vista maravilhosa
Tem uma das vistas mais bonitas do Rio de Janeiro. Dá para ficar horas no deck ou na piscina só aproveitando o visual. Staff extremamente atencioso, e tem um bom café da manhã - acompanhado da visita de miquinhos!

Otimo hotel para descansar
A hospedagem foi maravilhosa. Fomos muito bem recebidas, chegamos antes do horario do chekin, e nos deixaram a vontade até liberar o quarto. O hotel é uma graça, é um casarão. Em destaque para a piscina, jacuzzi e o deck. Pontos fortes: atendimento, vista, conforto e café da manhã Pontos fracos: sinal wifii fraco nos quartos ( porém na sala comum é otimo), nao aceitar cartão e não ter serviço de restaurante. Uma dificuldade que eu tive que é que poucos taxistas do rio sabem andar em santa teresa. Então, recomendo que achem uma empresa de taxi da região ( utilizei a santaxi). Como o sinal é ruim, uber nem sempre é uma saida.

Hotel lindo, muy tranquilo y con excelente vista.
Fue una estadía linda. Con una vista increíble del Corcovado, pero después lejos de todo. Lugar para escapar de la ciudad y relajarse disfrutando de la vista.
