Fodor's Review

In 2013 the team that developed the much-raved-about Santa Teresa guesthouse Casa Cool Beans opened a second lodging a block from the beach in Ipanema. The overall feel of the converted 1940s building is more utilitarian than in Santa Teresa, but the eight flats within have stylish, contemporary furnishings and artworks by Paulo Freire, a popular Rio artist. The one-bedroom suites also have living areas. The flats don't have kitchens, but they do have minibars, and the location is a stone's throw from excellent bars and restaurants.
