This luxury hotel, complete with palm-fringed pool and acclaimed French restaurant, attracts stylish visitors looking for an alternative to busy beachfront lodgings. High on a hillside in the artsy, mansion-filled Santa Teresa neighborhood,it's the only five-star hotel in the area, and gained worldwide attention when Amy Winehouse made her base here during her 2011 tour of Brazil. It's now managed by Sofitel, but maintains a boutique feel. This indie-chic neighborhood is full of handicrafts stores and vintage clothing outlets, and its drinking and dining scene is one of the most celebrated in the city.
- Best for Romantic Hotels Because: The hotel, pool and gardens are a lovely setting for a romantic break, and there's fine dining on-site at the hotel Tereze.
- Best for Airport Hotels Because: Closer to Rio´s airports than the hotels of Copacabana and Ipanema, this 5-star hotel offers chic lodgings in a historic neighborhood.
- Best for Hotels near Estádio do Maracanã Because: Hotel Santa Teresa is an easy cab ride from Maracana (or cab-Metro combination if traffic is heavy) and offers stylish lodgings in a boho-chic neighborhood.

- Recommended as Best Hotels Because: Hotel Santa Teresa offers five-star luxury in one of Rio's most picturesque neighborhoods.
