Lovely B&B with friendly, helpful hosts and excellent breakfast!
We stayed during the week leading up to Rio Carnival and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Caminho do Corcovado. On arrival, as the only guests, we were upgraded to the bungalow - tucked in to jungle on the hillside. We loved the rustic setting and the proximity to nature (having seen hummingbirds, monkeys and lizards, among others). The B&B is located up quite a steep hill and a little way from most of the central attractions, however it is in a nice, quiet neighborhood in which you feel perfectly safe walking around at night. It is also right next to the train station for visiting Christ the Redeemer, so there are plenty of taxis nearby during the day.
Helena and Diogo were incredibly welcoming hosts and could not have been more attentive. We loved the varied breakfasts (especially the amazing fresh juices!) and also took advantage of the airport transfers and their City Tour, where we visited several significant landmarks and viewpoints, about which Diogo was very knowledgeable. Should we return to Rio, we would certainly consider staying here again :)More
