Casa com Varanda Bed & Breakfast, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
29th Mar 2013

We were so disappointed by our experience at Casa com Varanda. We had spent several days in Santa Teresa already, and were familiar with most of the area. This property is not in a very safe location, and it's quite far from public transportation sites (either by bus or mini-bus). The B&B itself is really just a woman's house with guest rooms available. The room we had was tiny and cramped. The bathroom was also very small and not clean. I would not recommend this location to anyone

Sorry if the guests did not appreciate the Casa com Varanda. I do not understand why they wrote that this property is not in a very safe location of Santa Teresa. We even have a security guardhouse 10 meters from the building with guard 24 hours a day. They said here is far from the local public transport, but in fact the bus 014 Paula Matos x Castelo stops in front of the Bed & Breakfast. This transport is circular to the city center where the main museums are. At the same point there is also stopping the mini van (Kombi) to the neighborhood of Gloria (subway station). Within 10 minutes walking you can catch buses to the beaches and relevant sites of Rio de Janeiro, as Corcovado, Sugar Loaf, and Botanical Gardens . The room with more than 12 square meters can not be considered small and tight. Yes, as they say, the Casa com Varanda is really just a woman's house with rooms available. The woman am I and I like to host and do the best I can so that guests have a comfortable and pleasant stay. We have a large and a small bathroom. Both are cleaned daily. I am glad that many other people have enjoyed staying here and expressed a desire to return. Best Regards, Delfina

Adorable little hostel with an incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Safe, residential location, but be aware that getting to Corcovado, Sugar Loaf, and the beaches can be a bit of a challenge. Wonderful views from the balcony. Rooms were very clean. Overall had a great stay and would recommend!
