Mama Ruisa Hotel

Located in the hills of Santa Teresa built in 1871 and once the home of the mayor of Rio, this beautifully renovated pousada is one of the most historic buildings in the trendy area of Santa Teresa.

Each of the 6 rooms are stylish and spacious, some with views over the city and Guanabara Bay. Away from the tourist traps near the beach, this bohemian part of Rio de Janeiro is popular with artists and has excellent restaurants and nightlife.

This elegant and serene retreat is the perfect getaway in Rio.
