We had the pleasure of staying here for two nights. We echo previous comments about the hospitality of the owner, Helena. She made her house available for both early checkin and late departure. We have two suggestions for future guests....1. Print off a Google map of the immediate area so a taxi will know where to go, and 2. Bring... More

This beautiful safe place with it's fantastic view of some parts of Rio, from where you can get everywhere easily, this cosy somehow intimate hotel with an impressing jungle-garden around, this gorgeous breakfasttable every morning with its generous variety of Brasilian fruit and top of it the host of this property, an ever so helpful, amiable and charming lady -...

All the reviews you're reading on here are right ... it's one of the friendliest, most relaxing, most welcoming places I've ever stayed. Tricky to find, you'll need a taxi driver who's willing to head up in to the hills, you'll stop just before the steep rail tracks up to the redeemer, and from that moment on you're about as... More

I recently stayed at the Casa Caminho do Corcovado Bed and Breakfast in the traditional and very friendly neighborhood of Cosme Velho. My room was clean, quiet and very comfortable with an adjoining (en suite) bathroom. There was a lovely view of the garden from the window and the house itself is located right at the edge of the forest.One... More

My partner and I stayed here for a few days while we were visiting Rio. Great location, with an easy walk down to the Corcovado Tram station and restaurants. Great hospitality! The people who run it are very nice and extremely helpful. Our room was lovely, cosy and private. I felt safe staying here and would definitely recommend it to... More

I loved staying at the house with Helena and Diogo, and wish I could have spent more time in their beautiful and cozy home! After spending some time at a different location in Rio going the beach, exploring the night life and taking in the chaos of the urban areas I really wanted to get away and immerse myself into...

We first learned about Casa Caminho do Corcovado after reading the rave reviews on TripAdvisor and after making an inquiry I was very impressed with the prompt response from Helena, the owner. We had planned a short three night stay in Rio and true to all the other favorable reviews on Trip Advisor, Helena and her son Diogo were the... More

My dad and I stayed here during the World Cup recently and I cannot recommend the B&B high enough. Helena and Diogo were perfect hosts, the house was great and the breakfasts delicious. The central location and regular buses from the bottom of the hill made sightseeing and getting round very easy.. I found Rio to be a much cleaner... More

I do not have much to add to all the superlatives written about this place. Same goes for Helena & Diogo. Both place and people were wonderful. I stayed for 5 Weeks in Brazil during the world cup and the last three days of my vacation I stayed in Casa Caminho do Corcovado. And it was the perfect end. Will... More

This pousada clings to the hillside some way up the Corcovado mount on which the statue of Christ the Redeemer stands. As a result, the steep access is inconvenient unlees you are agile but the quiet seclusion and terrific views are bonuses. Despite the apparent isolation, the location is in fact excellent because at the bottom of the hill, there... More

Dear guest, We appreciate your presence at Casa Caminho do Corcovado and for sharing your opinion about us on TripAdvisor. I regret that during the World Cup hosting prices in general have increased throughout Brasil. But I think that happens in any country during major events. I hope someday you can return to enjoy a price range we used in... More
