After a month of travelling around Brazil I chose this place to stay for my last few days in Rio based on other Trip Advisor reviews, and I'm so pleased with my decision. It is set in the most beautiful location, with stunning views over Rio and a stones throw away from Christ the Redeemer. The hosts Helena and Diogo... More

Great place to stay, easy transfer to/from airport and port, and lots of good advice from Diogo and Elena. Clean accommodations, good location, great breakfast, and natural beauty around the hotel. Would recommend for someone who wants a more personal touch to their time in Rio at an affordable price and good location.

We stayed in the little cottage here, which was really comfortable and private. It has its own outside table and chairs, and the entire place is set just on the side of the forest so has a very green, lush setting. The owner is lovely and friendly, and incredibly helpful with advice for getting around and places to eat. And... More

This are the reasons why I would recommend this pousada: 1. The kindness, helpfulness and the personality of Elena, who used to work as a lawyer, the mistress of the house who loves art and especially surrealism. 2. The youthful vivacity of Dogo, son of Elena, who gave us a fantastic overview of Rio in architecture, churches, football, carnaval etc.... More

We had an amazing time in Rio, largely because of all of the help Diogo gave us during our stay. He picked us up at the airport, and we also organized for a combined tour/drop-off on the day we left. During our stay, Diogo was always around to tell us how to get places, and his advice was very good.... More

Beautiful house located right next to Corcovado feet With 4.500 square meters of green area, the house is placed in the Cosme Velho area one of the most charming neighborhoods in the city, famous by many of the illustrious inhabitants and for the cultural and historical memoirs. The house Caminho do Corcovado is located inside of the Tijuca park reserve having the Corcovado train passing literally by its door. The house was constructed in 1906, since than it had many illustrious residents, including the proper construction engineer of the railroad of the Corcovado, and still keeps the characteristics of the beginning of the last century. For nature lovers its 4500 square meters receives frequent visits of many species of monkeys and toucans, Brazil's typical wild life residents. The Bed and breakfast contains 2 large rooms with air conditioner, TV, ceiling fan, closets and a decoration of very refined taste, it counts with a delicious breakfast and with an area for barbecue and several other personalized services in accordance with the taste of our guests, the calm and the tranquility is undeniable and it all sits right at the south zone of Rio De Janeiro, 10 minutes from the lagoon and the botanical garden and 15 minutes from Copacabana an Ipanema area by car and 25 minutes by bus. The House Caminho do Corcovado is perfect for those who want to enjoy the very best that Rio de Janeiro has to offer. Important: This is an unusual house in an urban forest, so the buses do not pass on your door. But they are not far - just 50 feet below. Because it is situated on a little hill, which gives a beautiful view, has some stairs, so therefore not the proper place for disabled people or people with limited mobility. ... more   less
