Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Très bon séjour chez Myle (et toute son équipe) qui est au petit soin pour ses hôtes.
    Il faut s'armer de courage pour grimper toutes les marches avec les bagages mais une fois arrivé, le charme de l'endroit vous emporte.
    Les chambres sont très propres et bien entretenues. Mention spéciale pour la douche extérieure ;-)
    Le train montant au Corcovado passe juste à côté de la chambre mais vous l'oublierez vite. Dans le pire des cas, il vous réveillera à 8h30.
    Bref, nous y avons passé un excellent moment, et y sommes d'ailleurs revenus à 3 reprises.

  • It was very nice time for me to stay at Myle's and Walter's guesthouse. I can fully recommend this location. My only problem after 2 weeks of living there was that I had to finally leave this place :)

  • Myle is a wonderful host, we wanted to stay forever in this part of Rio, such a lovely location. I cannot wait to return and find more time to spend overlooking the city, walking the historic streets, and filling our souls with the music of this amazing country. We are in awe with the culture, the nature, and the people of Brazil and look so so so so forward to a soon return. Obrigada Myle, your create beautiful vibrations that surround your space. We will send photos soon to your email address.
    Best of Luck with all your studies xoxo
    Much Love Linda and Quela

  • This was a wonderful, wonderful place to stay. The room is very pleasant, with nice views and all amenities, and the gardens are a nice place to sit after a long day out and about. It's in a great location - very quiet and beautiful, but within an easy bus ride (or even walk) of all kinds of sights, restaurants, etc. We were always surprised by how easy it was to get to and from the house. It is right near the tram, but the neighborhood is not touristy at all. The best part of our stay in Cosme Velho was Myle, who is a charming and thoughtful host! We stayed here for five days, and would come back in a heartbeat! Highly recommended.

  • Myle is a great host, the place is cozy, we saw monkeys in the trees from our window and we loved the area. Beds and bathroom were small, but the hosts are improving the place and it's a great option, good for the price. Breakfast is varied and good. Recommended.

  • Myle is an amazing host. Really friendly and helpful, she helped us with how to get around the city, interesting places to go, great nights out and the initial challenges of moving to a new city.

    The guesthouse is beautiful in a really tranquil spot with the sounds of music and the city wafting up as you relax on the veranda. Its also in a good spot for visiting all the different parts of the city and if you'd like a slightly different view of the city it's perfect.

    I would definitely recommend staying here.

  • We had a great time here. The place is great and in a great location basically in the middle of Rio, and you can wake up to the sounds of nature outside your window. Myle was very welcoming and helped us out with some logistics upon arrival and leaving. Would stay again.
