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.
