The Space



 Residencia Mundo Novo is located in the very heart of Rio de Janeiro, between the Christ Redeemer, one of the new Seven Wonders of the World and the Sugarloaf Mountain.

Rua Mundo Novo is a residential street climbing the hill that divides Botafogo and the middle upper class neighbourhood of Laranjeiras, just south of the Guanabara Palace, seat of the state government of Rio de Janeiro.

 You can find a combination of nature, tranquility and stunning views and is only 10 minutes walk to Botafogo where you find shopping centers, banks, travel agencies and public transport, with metro and buses to all beaches, and tourist destinations in Rio including the airports.

The ideal central location within the city, means that a taxi ride to either Centro, Copacabana or Ipanema will take only 15-20 minutes costing between 15 to 20 reals
MARACANA Stadium can be accessed by metro or bus in around 30 minutes

  • Was in Rio De Janeiro for the world cup. Had a great time. The room was clean and Joao did a great job of keeping the house clean and stocked. The house is on a hill, which can feel like a climb. The neighborhood was overall good. Close enough to metros and buses. Had a unfortunate occurrence while walking home late from the metro, someone was hiding in the bushes, but fortunately I was fine. Lost nothing and didn't get hurt.

    Joao was very helpful in providing information about getting to and from the airport.

  • João and Javier have a gorgeous, massive house in the hills of Botafogo. I adored coming home on to the streets of cobble stone and greenery. Everyone at the house is welcoming and fun... A great place to meet lovely people and be close to all the action.

  • Located in a quiet, safe neighbourhood, this house has everything you need.

    A short downhill stroll to the Botafogo shopping centre, you're also a 30min walk or two minute bus ride from Copacabana beach.

    Would recommend staying here.

  • My wife and I spend two weeks here during Canaval and really enjoyed our stay. The owners are both very nice and helpful. They have done a great job converting their large home into rooms available through AirBnb. The location is convienent as long as you can handle a 15 minute walk up cobblestone streets that include sections of stairs as shortcuts to the top of the hill. Once down the hill shopping and the Metro are close by. Our room was at ground level in the rear and had it's own outside entrance and a bath right outside the room. Both were very clean. There is a shared kitchen available on the same level. The neighbors barking dogs may be an issue at times but the Marmoset Monkeys in the trees were fun to watch. Highly recomend this place and especially these hosts.

  • Super accueil et chambre très agréable! Il faut juste être un peu sportif pour y grimper mais ça se fait bien et du coup l'endroit est bien plus calme! A recommander sans hésiter!

  • The house is great: the room is clean, cosy + the shared areas are really nice (there's even a cute little backyard with hamacs). The location in Botafogo is perfect as you are halfway to the Centro, Lapa and the beaches (Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon...). The area is very safe: the house is on top of a hill, but you better have strong legs to go un and down the stairs!

    Javier is extremely nice and helpful, thank you!

  • La experiencia de alojar en casa de Javier ha sido maravillosa. Javier es un excelente anfitrión, acogedor, atento, y siempre dispuesto a responder las dudas acerca de la ciudad. En cuanto a la casa, muy bonita, muy limpia, bien mantenida, y ubicada en un barrio muy tranquilo tanto en el día como en la noche. Es definitivamente uno de los mejores lugares donde hemos alojado, muy recomendable.

  • La verdad que fue todo un placer la estancia en casa de Javier. Desde el primer momento la comunicación fue perfecta. Las zona comunes estaban muy limpias. La ubicación de la casa esta como a 10 minutos de la parada de metro de botafogo. Recomendamos al 100% la casa de Javier para pasar unos maravillosos días en río. Volveremos!!!!!!

  • We had a fantastic time in Rio and Javiar was a terrific host and his house was a great place to stay. Anything we asked Javiar he was more than happy to answer and/or provide. The house is up a hill but we enjoy the exercise and otherwise taxi's are reasonable (especially as you will be saving money here compared to a hotel/hostel). The other guests in the house were very friendly and helpful. The room was bigger than it looked in the pictures. There was a kitchen and the shared bathrooms were large and had hot water (if you need it in Rio). We even recommended our friends leave their hostel and join us at the property and they extended their stay there as they also enjoyed it.
