The Space

Go beyond a tourist experience !
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 !


The 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 house.


You will stay in a room at a family' house.
A beautiful small room.
The room is small and has space only for the single bed, chair, fan a shelves where you place your belongings.
Shared bathroom.


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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • For me will be very easy to describe my experience during my stay at the Thatiana house: Was Excellent, and she is the best Host ever...I am very happy and for the next time I do not have any doubt to chose that place again!.

  • Thatiana is a very nice, friendly and warm person. She was very helpful showing and explaining to me where I will find everthing and recommended me some nice places. She even went out with me and introduced me to her friends. The stay in her cozy house was very pleasent, especially I liked her passion to bake :-)
    Just one little thing: The room 4 looks on the pictures bigger than it is for my opinion. But that is all - not really a reason to complain ;-) I would go to Thatiana's place at any time again! Thanks and take care!

  • É primeira vez que utilizo o Airbnb e já me falta palavras para expressar minha experiência no pouco tempo (3 dias) que passei na minha primeira visita ao Rio de Janeiro para participar de uma convenção.
    Estou muito feliz de ter conhecido a Thatiana que foi uma excelente anfitriã, uma pessoa simpática, culta, comunicativa, atenciosa, alegre, com uma personalidade forte e que já viajou por todo o mundo e tem muita bagagem. Me recebeu com muito carinho e atenção em sua maravilhosa casa, me emprestou mapas, me orientou sobre os pontos turísticos, trajetos, ônibus, metrô, bairros, a noite carioca e as precauções que deveria tomar, estava sempre à disposição para ajudar, me fez me sentir como se estive em casa.
    A casa fica muito bem posicionada no centro histórico do Rio, perto de tudo, tem uma boa vista da cidade e acredito que nem preciso falar da organização e da limpeza.
    Recomento a todos a que forem ao Rio de Janeiro, tenho certeza que vão ficar encantados com a visita e a recepção da Thatiana.

  • I had a very nice stay at Thatiana's place. Wonderful, clean house in a wonderful neighbourhood. Rio's centre, that is relatively unknown to tourists, is fascinating. Very pleasant people. Thatiana is very helpful, we went also out together. Great time!

  • I loved my stay in Rio. Thatiana is a great host. She is extremely knowledgeable, very helpful, and a pleasure to be with. She knows a lot of kool places and is fun to hang-out.

    The house is clean, well-organized, safe, and very well ventilated. It is atop a hill and that is why temperature in the house is usually 2-5 degrees lower than the actual temperature. It was especially important for me as I was coming from Boston (extreme cold) to Rio's spring (hot and humid). Plus, it is very well connected via public transport. It is also very close to the birthplace of Samba (Pedro Do Sal).

    The best part for me was Thatiana's guest-service ethic. On one occasion, I locked myself out of the room. Thatiana was in a adjoining city and had plans to come later. But to ensure that I do not have a hard time, she changed her plans and came early to assist me. I don't encourage anyone to put her through such pain again :-), but I am highlighting this story to express her kindness and care.

    I would love to stay here again when I come to Rio next.

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!

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
