My girlfriend and I stayed for four nights and we thoroughly recommend this B&B. Right from Diogio's airport collection and tour back to the B&B and Valerie's tasty welcome caihphirina, we were treated to wonderful family hospitality. It is a historic building with gardens, in a beautiful setting, situated in the rainforest at the foot of Corcovado mountain (with the cog train to Christ the Redeemer at the top passing outside, with historical significance to the building itself). The location is very peaceful and it's hard to believe you are in the middle of a large city, yet the it's not out of the way at all, with Rio's beaches accessible by a quick taxi ride through the tunnel. A delicious fresh breakfast (ahh the fruit) each morning and the only drawback was that we didn't see a macaco...or armadillo or anteater in the garden...maybe next time!
