Excellent experience at La Suite, my wife and I couldn’t be happier. We were greeted by Daniel, who was a very warm host and provided us with two excellent caipirinhas as welcome drinks.

The setup itself is amazing- it’s like staying at your own private mansion with amazing views. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the service phenomenal. Pro tip: ask for your breakfast to be served as a “floating breakfast” in the pool. They put it in a floater and it makes for amazing photos! (Doesn’t cost extra).

Staff is phenomenal and amenities are very nice. Fair warning is that it’s a little off the beaten, but that is perfect if you are truly looking to “get away”.

The “hotel” was an old mansion that was converted into what felt like a “high-end” bed and breakfast. There are only 7 rooms. Each with a designated color. We stayed at the Black Suite which is their most expensive suite.

The staff (a few who only who spoke fluent English) was amazing. Very friendly and attentive. I give them 5 stars but my review is only 2 stars because the amenities and condition the building is in deserves less than 1 star.

Our room was not in a great shape. However, it had AMAZING views. The curtains had holes in them, the paint was peeling, concrete cracking, holes in the stained bedsheet...I could go on and on.

The breakfast was fantastic for the first 3 days but the last two days, we were served what felt and tasted like microwaved scrambled eggs. We paid over $2500 for 5 nights and I honestly believe that it should have been only $1250 for 5 nights.

One thing I didn’t like was the lack of an iron and a hairdryer in the room. You had to ask for for them and then leave them outside your room so others can use them.

The location is not bad at all and it’s a short car ride to the hustle and bustle of the city. The area is gated and felt very very safe.

Again, the staff was phenomenal and the service was great. The place is severely run-down and in desperate need of maintenance and constant upkeep.

If the hotel was kept well and maintained properly, I would have given this place 10 stars. It felt like we were staying at our old grandma’s mansion who did not want to change one thing about it and had to share it with our estranged cousins.

Would we stay there again? Yes, but only if the curtains, the furniture, the walls and everything else were fixed.

A quiet hideaway in Jaotinga Hills, away from the busy beach area of Rio de Janeiro. Beautiful rooms with great vistas and sunset. Its like being in a private villa with your own private chef. Ideal for a romantic getaway for 2 days. Its about a 15 min drive from Ipanema.

Our first visit to Rio de Janeiro was made so special by this wonderful boutique house. From the moment you step through the red door, you cannot stop yourself saying wow!.
With only seven rooms available we had booked the Blue Room, large and stylish and extremely comfy bed. The private balcony just assists the amazing views.
Breakfast on the terrace is wonderful selection of fresh juices, fruit and eggs. We ate out most nights, but as we were flying back late in the evening we had lunch, massive compliment to Vinnie for arranging so late, and also to the chef the fish was gorgeous.
Thank you to Francois for all your recommendations and assistance during our stay, and to your staff Dudo, Daniel and Vinnie you have excellent customer service skills that would put many 5 star establishments to shame.
We will be returning as soon as possible, and look forward to your special Caipirinhas.

This is the only travel review I’ve ever written but I feel compelled to write something to acknowledge the amazing staff and service at La Suite. It’s small but the best ‘hotel’ experience you could imagine. Beautiful room, immaculately cleaned, stunning pool view and the friendliest staff I’ve ever encountered.
I hope this hotel thrives.
