Casa Cool Beans, TripAdvisor's 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016 Traveler's Choice® Award- #1 B&B in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

We are a small, relaxed Bed & Breakfast Inn located in Rio de Janeiro’s Santa Teresa artist district-referred to by New York Magazine as “the drop-dead-sexiest neighborhood in Rio.” Spread out on three levels, the buildings that make up Casa Cool Beans offer a serene setting with just ten guest rooms, all with private baths, air-conditioning, ceiling fans, safes, frigo-bars & free WiFi. The multiple gardens, open-air areas, pool and sun deck all offer exposure to the wonderful breezes & views of Santa Teresa. Casa Cool Beans is all about a collection of cool experiences brought together by creative art, delicious food & personalized service. PLEASE NOTE: We accept guests 13 years and older only. This property has many stairs and no elevator!

Sure, it's off the beaten path. But that's the point, isn't it? We hope you decide to stay with us. We’ll make sure your experience is nothing but “cool beans!”
