Clean guestroom in extraordinary location in the green hills of Leme. Its overviews Copacabana and Corcovado. Your stay in our small 5-room guesthouse with top Latino restaurant will offer you a unique experience in Rio, staying in the small and safe favela of Babilônia. If you do not like to walk up stairs for 5 minutes to reach our quiet place with amazing view, look for another place. Although nothing compared to the Himalayas, the walk uphill has been an obstacle for some guests.
