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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • 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!!!!

  • 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

  • We arrived in Rio after a 24 hour bus ride from Iguazu falls. A short taxi ride from the bus station had us at a most interesting part of Rio. Windy, steep steets, interesting homes and then after a little confusion with the taxi driver we arrived at our destination. Thatiana's smile lit up the room as we entered her welcoming home. We were shown to our comfortable room with queensize bed and a cupboard with plenty of room for our items. Thatiana is a wonderful host, she shared local treats with us, was full of information about everything we asked her and she made herself available each day to ensure we had clear instructions on how to get to our destination. From Thatiana's place we could easily walk to downtown Rio and to get to the beach it was a short walk to the main road where all the buses travel. A wonderful location and because Thatiana is a world traveller herself and speaks great English it made our stay in Rio all the more relaxing and pleasurable.

  • The place is a house with a nice view, very clean, well decorated and comfortable. It is well located near the main avenues and metro stations, also the central train station is 10 min walk. Not in a noisy area though.
    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. Definetly i recommend this place! I hope to be back soon.

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" Bree "A estadia na 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!

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
