The Artistic House - Heart of LAPA

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Av. Gomes Freire, Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro 20231-015, Brazil

The Space

Safe and modern apartment in the 7th floor of a building with 24 hour doorman.

Although located in the heart of the nightlife of Rio, there is very little noise from the street, as the apartment is situated in the rear of the building. (occasionally there is some noise during the weekends, but not always)

It can be found in the best part of Lapa, between the two main streets of the neighborhood: Mem de Sá and Riachuelo.
Bars, restaurants, supermarket, bakery, pharmacy ... all just outside of the building. Everything that you need is nearby and there is easy access to public transportation, 24 hours a day.

The apartment has a spacious bedroom with a king size bed which can be used as two singles as well.
Living room with a LED TV, a collection of Brazilian DVDs (originals, with English or Spanish subtitles) and a sofa-bed;

American-style kitchen, fully equipped; and bathroom with an electric hot shower and hairdryer.
> For security issue, this type of shower automatically turns off the hot water no longer than 30 minutes of using.

The Artistic House was created especially for short season accommodation, designed and decorated with total uniqueness by the artist Aline Campbell.

Wireless internet, washing machine, microwave, stove, blender and grill.

Features murals, adorned ceiling and artwork everywhere!
Live, eat and breathe Art.

> The street on which the building is located is constantly dirty and is a home for street beggars - however this does not mean that it is dangerous, especially because It is in a busy part of Lapa. I'm just making it clear because it might not be something attractive to tourists.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I had a wonderful stay at Aline's Artistic House.
    The place is even more beautiful and original than in the pictures and is perfectly located in Lapa.
    Even though I didn't have the chance to meet Aline, I felt very welcomed during my stay. Check-in and check-out were easy, she was available by email for any question.
    Her superguide is full of good tips and advices and was perfect to have some precious insights of the carioca life :).
    Thanks again Aline

  • Aline's apartment is really well decorated, clean and has everything you need. Right in the heart of Lapa it is really central and easy to get buses everywhere. Aline has made an information booklet with maps and recommendations on the area, this was great and good to get an understanding of the area from a locals perspective. The only problem we had with the apartment was how hot it was inside, we did stay during a particularly hot time but the fan was not enough and the apartment was really hot both day and night, our only suggestion would be to have aircon, Other than this the apartment met all our needs.

  • It is always a great pleasure to stay with Aline, it is like staying with a good friend. I have stayed in both of her places before, and I like this one even more than the other place, very nice, quiet, with lots of positive energy thanks to all the nice decorations.

  • This is the most beautiful apartment in Lapa, except for Aline's own apartment which is just a block away.

    Apartment is great with everything you need and much more. Aline is a great host, she provided detailed information in english on how everything in the house works. She also provided a great personlized information guide on Rio to help you get most out of your stay in Lapa.

    Aline also invited me along with her other guests to go see the fevelas, which was a great experience and she help us to save alot of money, as we would have booked a fevela tour.

    Thank you Aline for being so helpfull and understanding.
    Muito obrigado !

  • It is really nice apartment in the heart of Lapa. Really beautiful and well equipped. Aline provided information about Lapa and how to get to all main points of interest.
    Keep in mind there is no air-conditioner so it was hot and stuffy in the room. There are fans but they are noisy. Also it is really noisy outside in spite of courtyard.

    Response from Aline:

    There is no air-conditioner in the apartment because the fans are efficient enough, even during the warm days. Also, the fan in bedroom is more silent than a normal air-conditioner. About the neighborhood... Lapa is the nightlife of the city, where you can find the best bars. However, as the apartment is located in the rear of the building, it is pretty silent.

  • Apartment was really nice, fully equipment and clean, wifi was working good. Location in Lapa is nice! I can recommend it.

  • I just met Aline once on the second day she is a lovely girl and very helpful too
    The Apartement was everything i was looking for. (Freedom and stressless)
    I stayed in Aline house for almost 3 weeks, the doorman was very kind and helpful.
    I loved staying in Lapa, great neighbor, easy to get around by bus.
    Awesome night life, best sushi place at the corner
    I really enjoyed my time

  • L' appartement est situé au coeur de Lapa et en periode de Carnaval c'est l'endroit idéal qui vous plonge dans cette atmosphère si particulière.
    L'appartement est propre, très bien équipé et décoré subtilement.
    L'électroménager est performant et si vous souhaitez cuisiner il y a tout les appareils nécessaires.
    Merci Aline, les Bordelais te remercient et te souhaitent une bonne continuation.

24 years old - "carioca da gema" ;) I graduated in Tourism but I am an artist by trade. I spend most of my time at home painting and doing my string art which you can view in my ad pictures. I have a lot of experience in hosting people. In two years, I've already hosted more than 200 guests, from 42 different countries, only in the one-bedroom-apartment where I live.
