Gostaria de agradecer imensamente pela recepção e cordialidade! Tive uma semana corrida, ou seja, parei pouco na casa, no entanto, mesmo assim, Thatiana sempre foi muito atenciosa e comunicativa! Em sua casa me senti muito à vontade e por isso, nas próximas vezes que eu for ao Rio não hesitarei em nenhum momento de ficar em sua casa, caso haja disponibilidade! Recomendo a todos (as) aqueles (as) que tiverem interesse e, com certeza, recomendarei aos meus amigos que forem à cidade. Sou grato de verdade por pensar no próximo, no coletivo. Um grande ser humano.
A Thatiana é uma excelente anfitriã! Está sempre pronta pra dar muitas dicas do que fazer, onde ir e como ir. Não tenho palavras pra agradecer toda a ajuda que recebi dela, antes e durante minha estadia. Ela é muito agilizada e preocupada em tratar seus hóspedes muito bem e a casa está sempre limpa e organizada. O Morro da Conceição é um lugar seguro e muito bem localizado, além de ser muito charmoso! Tem fácil acesso e é perto de muitos pontos turísticos do Rio. Super recomendo!!!! Obrigada por tudo, Thati!!!
Passei ótimos dias hospedada na Happy House da Thatiana. Adorei a atmosfera da casa, e a sempre atenciosa anfitriã. Ela também soube me dar privacidade e ao mesmo tempo disponível se eu precisasse dela. Infelizmente fui a trabalho, mas gostaria de ter tempo de usar as ótimas dicas do Rio de Janeiro da Thatiana, vários pontos turísticos e culturais estão bem próximos da casa. Quanto à localização – num morro - também quero adicionar que é um local seguro e tranquilo. Sempre é bom levar o “como chegar” para indicar aos motoristas de taxi.
I have spent great days at Thatiana's Happy House. I loved the house atmosphere and the attentive and helpful host. She also let me have my privacy while being there if I needed her. Unfortunately I was traveling for work, but I wish I had more time to make good use of the great Rio de Janeiro tips from Thatiana, several touristic and cultural locations are nearby. As for the where the house is – a “morro” - I would like to add that it is a safe and calm area. It is always good to keep the “how to get to the house” handy as some taxi drivers don't know where Morro da Conceição is.
Accueil très chaleureux, appartement propre et agréable. Hôte disponible et conciliante (possibilité de parler en anglais). Emplacement pratique pour le carnaval, et bien desservi pour accéder aux sites touristiques. Accès direct en bus pour les plages.
Warm welcome, pleasant and clean apartment. A receptive and conciliatory host (english speaking). Good location for the carnaval, and well served location, direct access to the beaches and turists sites with the bus.
My experience with Thatiana was better than I could have imagined!!! From the time we booked, Thatiana provided a vast amount of details and support to assist us on our journey. She even wrote out personalized directions for the taxi driver to locate her place of residence. The morning before our travels began, we connected via WhatsApp and were able to communicate freely, where she shared great enthusiasm about our pending arrival.
When our taxi driver arrived (after deciding to take his own route to the home), Thatiana was outside and presented a warm and genuine greeting, showing us around the home, our room, and even sharing with us the food she'd prepared for all those scheduled to stay there! Our stay was brief but Thatiana was our master planner in ensuring we got the most out of our stay. SHE KNEW WHERE EVERYTHING WAS FOR CARNAVAL! This resource was invaluable. We were able to navigate the bus, taxi and train system with Thatiana's direction and guidance (and the maps and books she offers to those who stay there). We truly connected with Thatiana about Brazilian culture, where she shared her insight about the history of many of the places we visited. We even danced with Thatiana at a Bloco (Block party during carnaval in the neighborhood where she lives), we took pictures and truly established an invaluable friendship and she made a BRAZILIAN feast for all those visiting! It was delicious! Whenever we were with any questions or needed support, Thatiana was attentive and available (sun up to sun down).She gave us suggestions on how to arrange our daily itineraries and the best place to shop for souvenirs!
When it was time for our departure, Thatiana arranged our taxi ride back and when the taxi driver had some trouble reaching her home (because of street blockages due to Carnaval) Thatiana arranged for an alternate meeting location and ran with us with all our luggage to our taxi! SHE IS ABSOLUTELY amazing, warm, engaging and truly dedicated to ensuring you have a meaningful trip to Brazil! I would recommend anyone staying in Rio to room with Thatiana for a lifetime experience. When I return, I will be staying with THATIANA!!!!
Nuestra estadía en la casa de Thatiana fue agradable. La casa es amplia y cómoda, se encuentra en una zona segura, volvimos de noche tarde varias veces y no tuvimos ningún problema. Thatiana es una persona encantadora, nos ayudó mucho indicándonos lugares, horarios, líneas de buses, etc. Le gusta cocinar y eso redundó en beneficio de los que estábamos hospedados. Recomiendo plenamente a la anfitriona y su casa.
Thatiana is a terrific hostess and a wonderful lady, and my stay at her house was a delight. She is upbeat, positive, full of knowledge and enthusiasm for her city, while at the same time keeping a very balanced and objective view of things. A traveler herself, she will give you recommendations that are tailored to your tastes and interests, and you can learn a lot about Rio from talking to her -- she is really smart and speaks her mind. The house is cosy and very charming, and set up in such a way that you can have as much privacy or be as social as you like. It's also very conveniently located, and, in the Rio summer, much cooler than the city streets. I would be very happy to stay at Thatiana's again on my next visit!
The wonderful reviews of Thatiana were one of the reason I chose to stay with her and now I am happy to be able to leave a glowing review of my own. Thatiana is absolutely wonderful. She genuinely cares about her guest's experience, is knowledgeable about the area, and is extremely helpful. I felt very welcomed and throughout my 3 week stay, had the chance to observe the care and attention to detail she puts into her house and work. I feel that she is a person with high integrity and I would trust to refer any of my family or friends to stay with her.
I stayed in the smallest room and it was comfortable and perfect for my purposes. As it has been pointed out, the area is not in the usual touristy area and allows you to get a feel for the city from more of a local's perspective. Thatiana explained what my transportation options were as soon as I arrived, provided a map for me that I have used a lot, and also gave a lot of recommendations of activities and events to do during my stay. The metro and bus are nearby and I easily commuted to the touristy areas from her house.
I have so many nice things that I can say about my time at Thatiana's. To summarize about the house, if you're looking for a warm and inviting place to stay with easy access to public transportation, this place is it. As for Thatiana as a host, I would summarize my experience as "above and beyond".
Muito Obrigada Thatiana!
It was really interesting to stay in Saude at Thatiana's place.The room was just perfect for me and located near to Pedra do Sal, one of the wonderful carioca's cultural place.
Staying at Thatiana's was marvellous!! She is a very friendly and caring person so is her home 'Home sweet home'. My friend and I had a nice welcoming home at our arrival. Thatiana helps us every time she could. The room and also the entire house is very clean, well-decorated and colourful. It is well located too downtown, in a historic area next to a military fortress so the neighboorhood is safe. You can find the Centro Cultural do Banco do Brasil, 15 min by walk, Museu de Arte do Rio at 5 min (which is free entrance on Tuesday by the way), and you can find 2 metro stations at 10 and 15 min, near you have a huge street market everyday and of course down from the house, many buses go to Copacabana, Ipanema, Botafogo where is the Sugar Loaf and so on. Taxis are not expensive at night from there (- than 30 Reais). However, taxidrivers tend to have problems to find the street because it is high on the hill but with good indications from Thatiana and if you have a map, you can indicate pretty easily. Overall I will definately recommand anyone who wants a relaxing holidays and is willing to learn about Brazil's history and culture, this is the place to be!! Thank you again Thatiana
