Feeling Rio as a resident and becoming part of our family !
The best place for a real and authentic local experience.

A House that is an Art Gallery and is under a constant change because of the contribution of the artists who stay here. All the guests are very welcome to have a part of it to produce any drawing, mosaic, painting, sculpture and so on.
Come to stay with us and feel free to leave your personal signature in our Art Gallery House !


Our cozy house is very comfortable and big with 150 m², 4 rooms, 2 bathrooms, WI-FI , fully equipped kitchen, dinning room, living room, a garden with a centenary vine, flowers, plants and 3 varandas facing the Christ, The Redeemer and the city center.
It is a colorful and beautifully decorated .

A colorful room with air conditioning, 2 single and 2 underneath bed ( Trundle bed ) + an extra mattress or a double bed + 3 single beds in bunk bed therefore up to 5 people can sleep comfortably there.

The house is set in the most traditional street of the Conceição Hill, Center City of Rio. Conceição Hill is an unspoilt historical and historic Hill in Rio and a place where many artists chose to have their Art Studio.
It is a historical neighbourhood where many houses are cultural and historical heritage of the country because of the Portuguese colonial architecture, the history of the place and all the tradition involved in the area . It is just 50 metres away from the Conceição Fortress and under the constant surveillance of the soldier . Because of it, it has been pointed out as one of the safest area of Rio.

*Why is it the best place to stay in the Fifa World Cup ?
Because the house is only 5 Km away to Maracana Stadium or 5 subway or train stations to it.

*Why is it the best place to stay in the carnival ?
Because the city center is where the greatest carnival blocos perform and where there is the school of samba parade .

*Why is it the best place to stay anytime ?
Because we are in the city center of Rio where buses, subway, metro and train are available and you can go to any part of the city, state and country.

  • La experiencia en The Art Gallery House fue increíble ! logró que la semana en Rio fuera maravillosa.
    La casa antigua muy bien reconstituida esta preparada para un lindo pasar. La zona es pintoresca cerca del casco antiguo, se ve la ciudad desde lo alto, algo muy bello.

    Thatiana es una anfitriona excelente, siempre esta atenta a lo que necesitan sus huéspedes. Nos llamo la atención la cantidad de comidas y postres ricos que tenía siempre preparado para nosotros.

    Hemos encontrado nuestro lugar en Rio !!

  • Hola a todos!

    Nuestra experiencia, mía (27 años) y de mi mamá (56 años), en la casa de Thatiana fue muy positiva, ya que ella es muy agradable y el lugar es muy acogedor.

    Estuvimos al final de nuestro viaje por 3 noches en esta casa, si bien ya habíamos estado en Rio al comienzo, pero nos habíamos quedado en Copacabana. Fue interesante ver los contrastes entre ambas partes de la ciudad, así que nos encantó haber hecho eso.
    La habitación en que nos alojamos era muy limpia y espaciosa. La cocina se comparte con el resto de la gente. En la cocina hay espacios para dejar tus cosas para comer y para compartir otras (como te, azucar, café). Hay cafetera, agua filtrada, microondas etc.

    Los espacios comunes son muy acogedores, ya que se nota que Thatiana se ha esmerado harto en hacer una decoración armoniosa. Hay también unas terrazas con unas vistas hermosas hacia la ciudad.

    Hay dos baños (uno con ducha), lo cual es suficiente para la gente que vive en la casa (No recuerdo haber esperado por el baño).

    Finalmente, hay internet y funciona bien.

    En conclusión, recomendamos este lugar!!!

Faculdade Bethencourt da Silva
Although graduated in Management I worked for 11 years as sales woman. Currently I've been working as an independent real estate agent . Travelling, beach, samba are my passion. I lived in Australia and Israel and have been in Turkey, Cambodia, Malasia, Laos, Thailand, Japan, Argentina, Chile and Bolívia. They are just the beginning... I enjoy taking people around to see the Cidade Maravilhosa ( The Wonderful City ), taking care of my garden where there are flowers, a vine and herbs that I use for cooking, trying new recipes and a cold waterfall dip in a hot day in Rio. I am literally very colorful and so is my house. Some review written by my guests: "Thatiana was attentive, friendly, helpful, beautiful, kind, communicative, respectful, responsive and caring." Celeste "Thatiana herself is just wonderful! She's helpful, informative, hospitable and also well travelled" (email hidden) casa da Thatiana foi ótima. Ela é uma pessoa muito atenciosa e prestativa. Sempre preocupada com o bem estar dos seus hóspedes, à disposição para ajudar no que for preciso..." Weverton "Thatiana is a wonderful host and makes a big effort to ensure your stay in Rio is enjoyable. She's welcoming and relaxed and has a genuine interest in meeting people from around the world. She'll give you heaps of info on the neighbourhood, the transport connections , supermarkets, bars and cafes." Vincent "La habitación es tal y como se ve en las fotos, pero lo que es más que recomendable es la dueña de la casa. Una persona muy servicial que se desvive por hacerte la vida fácil, cómoda y sobre todo que te esesora cómo y dónde ir adaptándose a la mentalidad de cada tipo de viajero. Personalmente me siento muy privilegiado por haber podido visitar Río de Janeiro con esta maravillosa guía local. " Nacho "Thatiana is a very easygoing girl, very helpful and kind. She enjoys meeting people and shared nice conversations and even drinks. Always nice to meet people with an happy soul as her. " Antonio "Thatiana is very friendly and helpful host!

Rishabh "Tatiana was amazing with me all the time! she give me advices ab the city all the time! were? how? times ? prices ... etc. " Daniele "O Rio com certeza se tornou um lugar muito mais agradável depois de conhecer a casa da anfitriã e principalmente ela, uma pessoa muito agradável e de um caráter indiscutível." João Paulo "A anfitriã ... fantástica, praticamente uma guia cultural, deu todas as informações necessárias para se locomover pela cidade (trajetos de ônibus, itinerários, horários, metrô, ruas , bairros, tudo!), além de sugerir vários pontos culturais alternativos da cidade para sair do óbvio. Extremamente cordial e culta, atendeu e esclareceu toda e qualquer dúvida a respeito de sua região e das demais." Daniel "Thatiana is a wonderful host. From the minute I arrived she made me feel at home with here sparkling personality and colorful house." Frank
