Cosme Velho

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.

  • 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 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!

  • Além do quarto ser muito aconchegante e o apartamento ter ótima localização (são 10 min de Copacabana e Lagoa, 5 min de Botafogo), a Paula é uma excelente anfitriã. Recomendo a todos!
