Rio de Janeiro is Brazil's primary tourist attraction and resort. It receives the most visitors per year of any city in South America with 2.82 million international tourists a year.
While the city has in past had a thriving tourism sector, the industry entered a decline in the last quarter of the 20th century. Services for tourists were lacking at the time, and visitors frequently found themselves subjected to a hostile environment: Few workers in the commercial sector could speak any language but Portuguese, beach and city pollution was deterring holidayers, and crime against tourists was increasing.
The fact that Brasília replaced Rio de Janeiro as the Brazilian capital and São Paulo as the country's commercial center has also been cited as a leading cause of the decline. Rio de Janeiro's government has since undertaken to modernize the city's economy, reduce its chronic social inequalities, and improve its commercial standing as part of an initiative for the regeneration of the tourism industry. The city is an important global LGBT destination, 1 million LGBTs visit the city of Rio de Janeiro each year.

Reviews of this property
Far exceeded expectations. The room is lovely, clean, big, with a nice sized en suite and opening onto a beautiful garden and pool area. it also has a well stocked fridge! The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Our hosts were the best bit, delightful and so helpful and hospitable. Miria, Silas and Velma were so friendly and willing to sit and chat over a few beers in the garden bar area, which we appreciated. The views from the upper terrace were great- of Rio, and the Redeemer. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone. Our best Wimdu visit by far.
Don't look further, this place is where you want to stay without any doubt! The hospitality of Miria and everybody in and around the house is fantastic. Also the house is beautifully located in Santa Teresa with an amazing view over the city and Cristo. The breakfast with fresh fruits every day for sure makes that you wish you could stay longer.
Very comfortable and clean apartment with beautiful garden and swimming pool and terrace. House is in the trendy district of St. Teresa with bar culture here Amy Winehouse was happy to relax. Owner and family are very kind and helpful, breakfast poem. Again and again - better than any hotel.
Sehr komfortable und saubere Wohnung mit schönem Garten und Pool und Aussichtsterrasse. Haus liegt im Trendy Stadtteil St. Teresa mit Barkultur, hier war Amy Winehouse gern zur Entspannung.
Vermieter und Familie sind sehr liebenswürdig und hilfsbereit, Frühstück ein Gedicht. Immer wieder - besser als jedes Hotel.
Allen and Miria had the most wonderful stay on our trip to South America. Good location in Santa Teresa, beautiful grounds overlooking the town, nice room. Breakfast in the garden was wonderful. Allen and Miria were wonderful hosts.
Allen und Miria hatten die schönste Unterkunft auf unserer Südamerika Reise. Gute Lage in Santa Teresa, herrliches Grundstück mit Blick auf die Stadt, schönes Zimmer. Das Frühstück im Garten war wundervoll. Allen und Miria waren wunderbare Gastgeber.
We only spent 2 nights in this beautiful house, too few! Beautiful room and large, comfortable ensuite bathroom. A caring lady that helped us with our every need. A beautiful garden is also available with a pool to relax after a day in the city. We also very much enjoyed the neighborhood of Santa Teresa, a little 'off the usual tourist routes, but no less interesting.
Abbiamo trascorso solo 2 notti in questa stupenda casa, troppo poche! Camera bellissima e grande, comodo bagno ensuite. Una padrona premurosa che ci ha aiutato con ogni nostra esigenza. Un bel giardino è anche a disposizione con una piscina per rilassarsi dopo la giornata in città. Abbiamo anche molto apprezzato il quartiere Santa Teresa, un po' fuori dalle solite vie turistiche, ma non per questo meno interessante.
We reallly enjoyed our stay at the beautiful house in Santa Teresa. The hosts are very friendly and we felt very welcome. We got a lot of help in different situations like our lost baggage ;) We had an own appartment with a bathroom. The breakfast in the morning was very good and the breakfast time was very flexible ;)
Overall we had a wonderful time in Rio and we would recommend this place to anyone who is going to Rio.
We felt very welcome and had a pleasant stay. Miria and Allan as the owners of the house are very friendly, flexible, helpful with any advice and support! Miria was extremely flexible concerning check-in and check-out and breakfast time. The breakfast was very good. The house has real character and has been decorated with a good taste and eye. The room has an own bathroom, it was very clean, cozy and also decorated with lovely details. But even the owner live there, there is enough room for privacy. The cousin Silas and his wife live in their house just in the back. At night you can enjoy with all of them good conversations, brazilian music and have some drinks at pool side. We couldn’t wait to get back home after each day out in Rio. A nice garden and a pool for swimming and it is easy to get even some easy meals and a bar where you can help yourself and just pay in the end with fair prices. But for going out in Santa Teresa has some nice bars and cafes with many local cariocas. The transport link is very good – the bus stop is just outside the house – for going to Lapa, or to the Center (Metro Stop: Largo do Machado) to catch the metro to the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema. And from the garden and even better from the roof top terrace there is a beautiful view of the Cristo Redentor and over the all other houses of Santa Teresa. You would like to stay longer... We enjoyed very much our stay and we would recommend the stay very much, and for sure come back to stay here again! Sehr freundliche, hilfsbereite Gastgeber. Ein wunderbar stilvoll dekoriertes Haus. Das Zimmer mit eigenem Bad ist liebevoll gestaltet, sehr sauber und die Handtücher waren dick und hatten 5*Hotel-Qualität. Santa Teresa ist ein ruhiges Viertel. Bars und Cafes sind in Fussnähe und man hat das Gefühl unter Einheimischen zuhause zu sein. Die Bushaltestelle ist direkt vor der Tür. So ist man schnell in Lapa, wenn man mehr Trubel und noch mehr Bars und Restaurants will. Die Metrostation Largo de Machado ist mit dem Bus auch schnell erreicht und so kommt man auch zur Copacabana oder nach Ipanema. Aber man freut sich richtig auf wieder auf das Haus und die Gastgeber und den Pool. Und vom Garten blickt man direkt auf die Christusstatue... Wir kommen gerne wieder! Absolut empfehlenswert!
