    Staff is great. One of the best of the area.

    Noisy. Way too expensive for the quality of sleep it gives. Breakfast not included? It thrives on past years success, but raised prices too much.

    If you want to be above the hubbub with a spectacular view of Rio, tough to beat this place, Amazing, historic building, attentive, multi-lingual staff, and a vibe that is tough to beat. Like a lot of places in Rio, you can walk to amazing spots, but you have to be aware of where you are going. Enjoy the breakfast on the deck, the pool, and he amazing common rooms.

    My fiancée and I spent one night here to escape the tourists and noise of zonal sul, and it was even better than I expected. We were met by Lydia (?) who made us feel at home immediately and showed us around and to out room. The house is really stunning with amazing views onto Rio, a beautiful swimming pool and a breakfast well worth the cost in the morning.

    The cat, pretending to be our friend, took advantage of some dropped scrambled egg and then buggered off. Typical cat.

    Just about everything. If I could live at Mama Ruisa, I would. The service was amazing. The two front desk ladies (one is Flavia, can't remember the other name) speak perfect English and go out of their way to be helpful. The rest of the staff speaks less English, but they are all very kind and happy to help. The views are incredible. The house is large with plenty of common areas to use in addition to very large private rooms. Breakfast was delicious but note that it isn't included in booking. Bring a map with you as some cab drivers aren't sure where this street is.

    I only wish I could have stayed here longer. If I get back to Rio, I will definitely stay at Mama Ruisa again.

    Tasteful and pretty and great location. Lovely breakfast.

    Jacuzzi bath didnt work. Staff were not welcoming and quite aloof. One girl was lovely and chatty. One of the minions was downright rude.

    Situation, ambience, staff, comfort.

    Avoid the family room tucked downstairs around the back.
