I enjoyed my stay with Diogo and Helena very much. I was traveling alone and it was my first time in Rio (and Brazil), and my stay with them was a wonderful way to start the trip. In fact, part way through my stay in Rio, I moved to another place to try to save money and experience a different... More

My 12 year old daughter and I stayed here during the Olympics. Helena and Diogo are gracious, kind, and helpful hosts. They gave us advice and directions during our stay. Breakfast was delightful in their stately home with big windows and gorgeous views. Cosme Velho is a neighborhood up the hill from the Corcovado / Christ Redeemer train station. We... More

The approach road is narrow and up a steep hill, but the experience of staying in this family run enterprise is more than worth the effort by car, taxi or on foot of getting there. The attractive and beautifully furnished house, set dramatically amidst delightful terraced gardens into the side of the Corcovado Mountain, on which stands the iconic statue... More

We spent 11 nights at Casa Caminho do Corcovado. We stayed in the Toucan Room. From the moment Diogo greeted us at the airport, to the farewell from Helena the morning we departed, the warmth and hospitality of this mother/son team supported us throughout our entire stay. The historic home has much character and charm and is well maintained. The... More

We spend 3 nights in the lovely bungalow of Helena. Her and her son's Diogo hospitality is friendly, very supportive and flexible. We enjoyed the beautiful surrounding around our lovely bungalow. We experienced a customized and relaxed time. Because we slept so nearby one of the highlights of Rio; the Christador. It was easy to catch an early train to... More

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.

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.

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.

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.
