Bed & Breakfast with a difference

The Hotel you’ll love “unique & original”

Stay with us and wake up to the most spectacular sunrise over the Guanabara Bay and Sugar Loaf. Our private double rooms are simple but cozy and clean and come with ensuite bathrooms. Included is a huge breakfast and the lively, legendary discussions with Bob. This is also a family home and the atmosphere is very relaxed.

The Maze has hosted film directors, movie stars (Stallone, Edward Norton), musicians (Snoop Dogg, Pharell Williams), writers, anthropologists, journalists, university professors, scientists, and yes, honeymoon couples.

We are located in the heart of the community Tavares Bastos, near Lapa and the city center. Our patch is certainly the safest location in Rio. We are neighbours with the B.O.P.E. Central Command HQ, Brazil’s equivalent of America’s SWAT or Britain’s SAS. Our guests can wander around any time of day or night and quickly feel part of the real Rio. The locals really enjoy your being here and when they have their frequent street parties, our guests love to join in and practice their Portuguese skills.

Our bar is always open to our guests on an honour system – so help yourself. The only rule is that no drugs are allowed on the premises. Otherwise sit back relax and enjoy.

Music events take place once or twice a month. We will let you know in advance if there is an event during your stay.

We speak English, Portuguese, Spanish and French.

Come stay with us at The Maze…The place you lose yourself and find yourself!
