What is(are) your name(s)?
For how long have you been running a B&B?
Please share something about the history of your present bed and breakfast.
"Since 2007, experience the Rio de Janeiro that the "Cariocas" know". These words are our reason for being a Bed and Breakfast. Our work began in 2005 with detailed study of how it could be and after more than 2 years, it resulted in planning and, finally in 2007, opening our house to the world. Ah, come try! You'll like it!
What are the unique characteristics of your B&B?
We offer a tranquil, informal but comfortable and safe atmosphere with all the necessary amenities to accommodate those who want to enjoy the "carioca" way of living. From the initial planning until the check-out, everything is done in the best Brazilian style, with efficiency and sympathy. This is what we call Hi Touch tourism, based on three principles: Quality - nice accommodation, delicious breakfast in an environment with people you can trust. Transparency - fair prices and respect to the tourists. Emotional experience - Rio de Janeiro as it is. The daily routine of the city in its most typical aspects. Bed and Breakfast in Rio must be within a family home. This means you will be staying in a room within the apartment of a couple. We all use the same bathroom (one normal and a small one) and shower and we all share the same area. We respect your space, so please respect ours. You have your own key, so you may come and go when you want, but know you are always entering a private home when you return. We can only rent two rooms at a time. There will never be more than 6 people staying with us at one time. We will serve you a delicious breakfast. But other meals are to be taken elsewhere (or brought in). You may, however, use our refrigerator for your own food and drinks.
We will treat you like a guest; please treat us like a family.
