Hotel Santa Teresa Rio MGallery by Sofitel


Nestled in a historic property dating back to 1850, Hotel Santa Teresa Rio MGallery by Sofitel is a truly urban retreat in the heart of the suburb of Santa Teresa, also known as Rio’s Montmartre. With easy access to downtown Rio de Janeiro, Botafogo Beach, Marina da Glória and a 10-minute drive to Santos Dumont Airport, our boutique hotel is close to a few of Rio’s main tourist attractions and sights, such as the Christ the Redeemer, the Sugar Loaf, Lapa, Parque das Ruínas, Sélaron Steps, the Santa Teresa Tram, local museums, and the Copacabana, Leme, Ipanema and Leblon beaches.


Our superbly comfortable rooms and suites display some unique pieces of furniture designed by Brazilian artists and are connected to lush gardens boasting some lovely fruit trees. The hotel has an outdoor swimming pool overlooking the Guanabara Bay, and the Le Spa by L’Occitane, a serene retreat contrasting with the hectic pace of Rio de Janeiro. At Térèze restaurant, our guests can indulge in the local cuisine with a French twist, and the Bar dos Descasados offers special drinks to be sipped while overlooking the neighborhood.
