A very nice bedroom in Cosme Velho, near Corcovado.
Cable TV, Internet wireless, air conditioning, a large kitchen, a wahing machine and confortable and clean bathroom.
Located on a quiet street, 2 blocks from Corcovado. Safe building with doorman 24 hour and all facilities in the neighbourhood - restaurants, bars, supermarkets, stores and easy transport public.
Cosme Velho is a traditional neighborhood in the Southern Zone of Rio de Janeiro, adjacent to Laranjeiras. Its main street is Rua Cosme Velho (an extension of Rua das Laranjeiras). It is a small neighborhood, but with much to interest tourists.
The Estação de Ferro do Corcovado (terminus of the Corcovado Rack Railway) is located here. Trains carry passengers from there to the summit of Corcovado Mountain and the statue of Christ the Redeemer.
The neighbourhood also includes the picturesque Largo do Boticário, which consists of a small square enclosed by several neocolonial style houses, built in the 1920s.

My friend Sarah and I stayed with Paula for 3 nights, 4 days during the New Years and we could not have asked for a better host! First of all, Paula's apartment is located in a nice and safe neighborhood. It's not right next to the beach but it's a 15 minute walk to the tram to Christ the Redeemer, and a 15-20 minute taxi ride to SDU airport, Lapa, Santa Teresa, Centro, Copacabana, Ipanema, and all the places you will need to go. We felt really safe at this location, especially within this gated community with a 24/7 doorman. The neighborhood itself is worth exploring with several restaurants, coffee shops, stores, and supermarkets. If you're looking for something more quiet and less touristy/more of a local feel, I recommend Cosme Velho.
The room itself was clean and had a lot of storage space. It's very comfortable for 2 people. We had our own bathroom (outside the room) which is also spacious and clean. During our stay, 2 other girls were staying in the apartment but it did not feel crowded at all. The apartment is decorated very nicely and has a balcony as well.
Now for the best part, Paula! Paula went above and beyond to make Sarah and I feel comfortable during our first time in Brazil. She gave us a taste of Brazilian home cooking and offered to help us figure out how to get to certain destinations with our limited Portuguese. Paula is extremely helpful and just a genuinely warm person. We loved talking with her and learning about her various interests; it really made our trip feel more authentic and enjoyable. Thank you Paula!
Paula is very hospitable. The place is very clean and comfortable. Transportation is really ideal - many buses, taxies right near the house. Surroundings are safe, quite and clean. Easy to go to any place of Rio, especially to Corcovado - just five minute walk to the tram!
Absolutely recommend this place to stay in Rio.
We had an awesome stay in Rio! The house was very clean and in a safe neighborhood. Corcovado Trem station was a short walk up the street, and buses to Ipanema and Copacabana pass by regularly. But the best part about this house is Paula! She was such a great host showing us around and letting us try different Brazilian foods. I highly recommend this place.
Paula´s flat is very cozy,clean and well (email hidden)us,she and her brother Gabriel were very helpful and nice to me.If I return to Rio in the future,I will choose to stay at her place once again.Highly recommended!
Paula was very helpful and the room was very clean. The apartment is located near the tram station for the Corcovado. It was very easy to get to and from her place using busses. Paula is a great hostess and I would recommend this listing!
My friend and I were extremely happy with Paula's very nice bedroom near Corcodova. First of all the location is very centralt. A 5 minute walk to catch the train up to the Christ the Redeemer statue. Not far from the subway and lots of options for buses. The neighborhood (Cosme Velho) felt very safe at all times.
The actual apartment is spotless. The rooms have air-conditioning. The kitchen is made easy to get around with labels and to top it off a balcony with a nice view and a hammock.
What really made our stay so amazing was our host. We stayed here during Carnaval and she made sure that any question we had (and there were many!) were answered. If she didn't know the answer she would call someone who did. We always left the apartment knowing exactly where we were heading and exactly what we were heading to. Thanks to Paula we both felt like we had a very unique and authentic experience in Rio.
Overall I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
Gostei muito do lugar, foi uma ótima decisão. o prédio fica a poucos minutos do corcovado e tem uma ótima conexão com as praias (Ipanema, lago) e um lugar muito tranquilo. A Paula foi uma excelente anfitriã, ajudo a gente em todo momento, recomendando lugares e visitando lugares juntos. Recomendo a todos!
I am teacher and researcher of Health and Work. I like to travel, meet new people and chat. I think it is interesting host nice people of other cultures or regions. This gives us the opportunity to recycle ideas, renewing a look on the things of the world and expand the possibilities of life.
