If you enjoy staying in a cozy but modern guest house, one that feels like home and just makes you want to kick off your shoes and relax, or go out and have some fun, you’ve come to the right place.
The Rio Dolphin Inn is a small but quality guest house in the nicest part of Rio de Janeiro, between the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema. We are situated in a quaint and charming vila of a dozen houses and are just blocks from the city’s best beaches, restaurants, stores and bars/cafes, markets, bookstores, juice bars, banks and cinemas. Bus lines and a new subway pass right in front of the vila, so you can get anywhere and back with ease.
We pride ourselves in offering personalized attention and being hospitable, clean and safe. We, John and Nina, your hosts, love Rio and enjoy sharing our knowledge with visitors. We’ll offer daily suggestions and tell you the best way to see the Christ figure and Sugar Loaf, or where to have the most tasty acai or take samba and surf classes. We will help you experience Rio in a fun and safe way.
Visitors use all kinds of words to describe Rio Dolphin Inn: beach house, zen temple, play pen, nature museum, boutique inn. We just call it home.
Perhaps the best way to get a sense of what a place is like is to read reviews from other travelers who have been there. While our new website is under construction, we encourage you to see our listing and read our reviews on BedandBreakfast.com and TripAdvisor.com
We look forward to hearing from you.
