About Casa Marques Santa Teresa

Nestled on a hilltop setting in Rio de Janeiro’s village-like district, Casa Marques Santa Teresa is set in a classically restored colonial house. Accommodations range from standard to master suites.

Presenting unique artworks and artisanal Brazilian rugs, the individually themed rooms come with air conditioning, televisions, minibars, and en-suite bathrooms. Select suites offer sitting areas and expanded private balconies.

Casa Marques Santa Teresa takes pride in its infinity swimming pool with spectacular views of the Guanabara Bay. This property also boasts an air-conditioned lounge with computers and a rooftop terrace with parasols overlooking the cityscape and the Sugarloaf Mountain.

The complimentary breakfast can be relished inside the room or on the airy terrace. Brazilian-inspired lunch meals are also available at the on-site restaurant. The poolside pergola-type bar offers a wide range of local and imported alcoholic beverages.

Christ the Redeemer, an immense statue of Jesus Christ at the summit of Mount Corcovado, is under six kilometres from the property.

Positive Reviews

Beautiful décor throughout

Reviews highlight the incredible interiors and attractive designs of the property, as beautiful artworks hang throughout the premises. Visitors admire the traditional Brazilian ornaments coupled with modern, up-to-date furnishings in the rooms. They claim that all quarters exude a luxurious and sophisticated vibe.

Unbeatable views of the city and mountains

Due to the hilltop location of the house, guests get to have excellent, unobstructed views of the city of Rio, Sugarloaf Mountain, and the renowned Christ the Redeemer statue. The sceneries are perceived to be best viewed from the terrace and the swimming pool area, where guests can also hang out and enjoy the pleasant atmosphere.

Excellent hospitality

Visitors praise the owners and the staff members for their hospitality and assistance. Guests acknowledge the valuable service of the team, who makes their stay more comfortable by arranging transportation and restaurant bookings. Moreover, newcomers highly appreciate the recommendations and information given by the owners about touring in Rio de Janeiro.

Negative Reviews

Isolated location

The property is reportedly located on top of a steep hill that is far from central Rio. Travellers find accessibility to local tourist attractions to be very challenging as taxis and other drivers are said to be rarely available in the area.

Limited restaurant hours

Guests verify that the on-site restaurant only serves breakfast and lunch, prompting them to venture downtown for dinner. This is an inconvenience to many visitors, due to the guest house's distance from local shops and restaurants. Travellers say they would appreciate seeing extended food service times here.
