We have had a wonderful time her in Rio, thanks to you. Your advice, help and kindness was well appreciated by us all. We felt very much of love in your B&B. The breakfast was excellent and the Christmas dinner was super.
We would love to come again some time.

Die Tage in Rio sind viel zu kurz gewesen und für uns war es ein wunderbares Erlebnis!
Dei Gasfreundschaft hat uns besonders angetan und das herrliche Frühstück werden wir vermissen. Wir wünschen uns eine Rückkehr um all die vielen noch nicht gesehenen Plätze zu besuchen.
If we come we will return and we know there is your door.

After many anonymous hotels inia's Pousada was a real change! I really enjoyed the ceremony of breakfast in the morning and of course going out with Inia in the evening.
I hope I will return soon to Rio and to Inia's B&B. I had a great time here!

we had such a lovely time at your cozy, honey place. Thank you for feeling us so welcome. All the tipps and stories about Brazil really made us forget us we are tourists - we feell like local Brazilians now.

We just spent 4 days with Inia, the delightful and generous owner of Arpoador Bed and Breakfast in Rio de Janeiro. It was absolutely brilliant. It's basically like being at home with your grandmother (who looks like your mother) doting on you. From the perfect breakfasts (with fresh fruits, freshly squeezed juice, tea& coffee, eggs cooked your way, deli meats, cheeses, yogurt, bread baskets, jams- the list is endless) to the charming, comfortable bedrooms (decorated in european country style- think south of france) to the ideal location (literally a 5 mins walk to Copacabana Beach and Ipanema Beach and 3 mins walk to Arpoador Beach), we really couldn't have been happier staying there.
Inia is lovely too and has wonderfully entertaining stories of her colorful, fascinating past to regale you with! We highly recommend this gem!
Inia adds a personal touch that cannot be found elsewhere; for example when my designer cocktail dress got stained 5 mins before I had to leave for a formal dinner, Inia wiped me clean!
However it must be said that this is not a hotel so do not expect hotel like facilities but expect better than hotel service (ie rooms are cleaned daily, towels are changed as often as you wish)!

My friend and I recently stayed at the Arpoador B&B for three nights. The accommodation was excellent, facilities very clean and the breakfast was magnificent (after visiting Rio, we flew to New York and spent six nights on the QM2 and their breakfasts weren't a patch on Inia's). Inia showed us the sights of Rio, made us feel very welcome and was a wonderful host. Don't even think about staying anywhere else in Rio. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
