Rio de Janeiro guest houses can be the perfect places to stay during a visit to the cidade maravilhosa.
The city can be a more than a little intimidating, especially to first time visitors, and the warm welcome and personal service you will receive at guest houses in Rio de Janeiro can be a real blessing.
Brazilian guesthouses are often known as pousadas, and they are usually run on a bed and breakfast basis. Ranging from casual and friendly, such as the fascinating The Maze, to chic boutique accommodation such as Santa Teresa's Mama Ruisa, guest houses in Rio often compare favourably in price to impersonal chain hotels. What's more, you can find them in some fascinating locations - try staying in a turreted fairytale castle at Castelinho 38, or in a (safe) favela location at the Maze or Pousada Favelinha.
