You get there by bus or tram, walk a bit and finally get to this big house. Very very interesting. I was looking for Debret drawings and found them right there. As well I found so many others I didn't know about and loved them. The price is low and the place is amazing. If you want to see paintings,...
our local guide suggested a visit as it was one of the few museums open on a Monday. What a surprise! Two floors of interesting paintings and lithographs of local scenes from late 19th and early 20th century and a Picasso! The highlight was a room of lithographs of individual animals... Quite superb.
What a lovely place in Santa Teresa. Beautiful views from the dinning room. Had an exceptional meal with outstanding service. Would absolutely go again, in fact tried but Uber driver could not find it.
Truly marvelous hotel, in a bohemian area of Rio. So much different and personal experience than the generic 5* hotels you find all over the hotel.
What made our stay truly awesome, was the attention we received from all members of the staff, who tried their best (and over-achieved) to satisfy our needs.
Big thumbs up to the local team...
We had a great stay in Mama Shelter. Very comfortable rooms. Breakfast is just great. Everything is made fresh. Orange juice, bread, cake, omelette etc.
People at reception are very friendly and fluent in English. Caipirinha in the bar from the finest, as strong as u want. This is Brazil from the it’s best side!
Also dinner was very good,...
Very exceptional Vila! Very sad to leave there! The nice team, the view, the restaurant are perfect! We had a very very good time! We recommend this hotel to everyone! Thank you very much!
