  • The Tram in Santa Teresa was unvailable. There are under high maintenance. But it was OK.

  • I had a wonderful time while staying in Rio Forest! All the staff members were so nice and helpful. The location was great as well! I was here for the World Cup and just walk down about 3 blocks and you're right in the the heart of all the action going on in Lapa! I will say walking back up the hills/stairs can be a pain, but the view makes it worth it. Highly recommended and will stay there again next time I am in Rio!

  • Very good location with an amazing view of the city (specially of the sunrise!). We did almost every walk by foot and had a "not mainstream" experience of Rio de Janeiro!
