Everything! Casa da Gente is a real hidden gem in Rio! The location is close to Lapa and Santa Theresa so plenty of options for bars/restaurants. The hostess Barbara is a really lovely person and was always friendly and helpful throughout our stay - giving tips and advice and even invited us along to a Samba night she was performing at which turned out to be one of the highlights of our visit! The facilities at Casa da Gente are great with an awesome garden roof terrace and great kitchen/dining/lounge areas. The breakfast served each day was really good with fruit, granola, yoghurt, toast, eggs, pastries and fresh juice & good coffee served. We'd go back again and would thoroughly recommend to others looking for a homely, relaxed stay in Rio!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa da Gente and wouldn't change anything about it! Our room got very hot at times (due to the hot Rio sun!) but fans were provided in the room which helped.
We loved our stay here. The hospitality of the hosts and staff was absolutely amazing. They gave us tips on what to do, helped us get around, and even treated me on my birthday. We felt at home. The place is located a few minutes walk down to Lapa via the Escadaria Selaron steps, and about 5 minutes up to the very cute Santa Theresa centre. The room was spacious and airy, with big bifold windows looking out over the city. The shower was hot with good pressure. The shared spaces were great; there was a beautiful garden with that same amazing view, kitchen facilities, a little book exchange, games etc. Every little detail was thought of - a lot of love has gone into this place. The breakfast is worth a special mention - each day it was slightly different, but always fresh, locally sourced where possible, and so yummy! Thank you Pauline, Barbara and the rest of the staff for looking after us so well.
We now have unreasonably high expectations for future accomodation! We’ve been spoiled!
Amazing terrace, fantastic breakfast and great host!
Very nice place, centrally located. Room was nothing special but very decent. The rooftop terrace is really nice, breakfast was the best we had in 4 months South America and the staff was exceptionally nice. Recommended!
As it's on a hill, it's quite a steep climb (especially when it's hot). The view makes up for it though
The location was very good and safe, the staff was very friendly.
