The Solar do Cosme is a late 19th century, cozy and comfortable house, with verandas and surrounded by nature and birds. It's situated at the foot of the Corcovado, in the Cosme Velho neighborhood.
The atmosphere and decoration are filled with history and keep in memory everyone who passed by. It is those memories which make the Solar a unique and great place to stay during your next visit in Rio de Janeiro.
Our breakfast buffet is prepared everyday with natural juices, seasonal fruits, cheese, ham and diverse jams and breads. All the ingredients are of quality and fresh.
What moves us is affection and dedication. We receive every guest with simplicity and care. This easy-going and carioca way of being creates a welcoming and unforgettable atmosphere, for us as well as for our guests.

Great cozy place!
The place is great! Cozy decoration, clean, comfortable, welcoming. They let you get whatever they have in the refrigerator and the payment method is based on what you declare! It's a pretty cool place. Staff is super! Location very convenient; few minutes by car to the beach and lagoon.
This place is wonderful and I'd recommend it to anybody
This place is wonderful and I'd recommend it to anybody. The hostel is full of character and its a perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of Rio. We had a double room with a shared bathroom which was spacious and homely. I have never stayed in a place where I was made to feel as at home as I was at Solar do Cosme so thank you to all the staff! If we ever return to Rio we shall definitely see you again!

We felt at home from the minute we arrived to the moment we left. The place is in a great location - 5 mins walk from the bus station from where you can catch a bus to pretty much anywhere in Rio (...)
If you want to avoid the bricks and mortar of the Copacabana and Ipanema hotels and prefer to see some of the nature of Rio then this is the place for you, you will not regret it.
Karneval in Rio de Janeiro
Our stay at the Solar do Cosme was mora than pleasant! The staff was so nice, once again, thank you very much! They helped us with everything we needed, they always could give us great tips about the city and they even managed to get us some tickets for the sambodromo! They made us really feel very comfortable in this beautiful hotel! Plus, there are frequent busses to all parts of the city, so within 10 minutes you reach Copacabana beach. The communication went very well, the breakfast is awesome!
Do yourself a favor and stay here!
The staff are WONDERFUL! I have traveled a lot and I have never met a staff that is so helpful, kind and willing to go way out of their way to make sure that all our needs and wants were met. They helped us plan our stay, print out tickets and boarding passes and provided us with treats at the end of a long day!
