Andreas makes sure you absorb the Urca atmosphere feeding you with the useful and the less obvious bits to make you a "less token item" and more of a transiting "local"... Our room was on the front, with sea view, but infact it was in effect a decent-sized one bedroom apartment..with a lovely "antecamera", a nice sized bedroom and bathroom....

Hotelinho Urca offers excellent location 5 minutes from pao de azucar in a very safe area of Rio, central location to visit centro and south zone.. ok, rooms are not so fancy but mattress and cleaness are perfect. I recommend rooms on second floor to avoid noise from restaurant, but what you would most remember from Hotelinho is the kindness...

We stayed at Hotelinho Urca after competing in the 2017 Cape to Rio Yacht Race and we could not have asked for a better place to relax and enjoy Rio. The staff were phenomenally kind and helpful. The breakfast was also a great way to start the day and the view was breath taking.

Hotelinho is a terrific option for a pleasant stay in the marvelous city. Located in Urca, the safest and calmest neighborhood in Rio, close to the city's main hotspots. Public transportation at front door to everywhere. Supermarkets, drugstore, bars and restaurantes nearby. Walking distance to the sugarloaf and a huge shopping mall. Amazing hospitality from Andreas and the whole team....

Small hotel located right below the sugar loaf in Urca. We had a family room, quite large with average beds. Decoration would need some refresh. But what is really an issue is the noise that is caused by the bar just downstairs where people have their drinks outside just below the room... No sleep at least until 11.30pm... The staff...

Good Morning Fabrice thanks a lot for taking your time to write your impressions about your stay at Hotelinho. I deeply apologize the disturbing noice from the bar. The good news for all our future guests is, that we changed our windows and put anti-acoustic windowpanes, which usualy are made for airports, means you hardly hear nothing more. A part...

We had a large group of 10 plus people stay here for a wedding. The staff was incredible and accommodating. There isn't a hotel in Rio that will beat the view from the rooftop of Hotelinho. Walking distance or a short Uber ride to a lot of great attractions and restaurants. Highly recommend the Hotelinho.

Staying in Urca

Neighbourhood Profile
Urca is one of the oldest areas in Rio. Known for its incredible views of the city, the neighbourhood runs along Guanabara bay, providing visitors with an opportunity to watch the sunset from one of Rio’s greatest natural treasures: Sugarloaf Mountain (Pao de Acucar). It is said that the locals in Urca are “bon vivant,” which is one of the reasons the area attracts people of all styles and ages. Urca is the perfect place to take a stroll and appreciate the area’s beautiful architecture, enjoy a cocktail and some delicious seafood pastries at a bar, or bring a bottle of wine and enjoy it while sitting anywhere along the stone seawall known as the “mureta.”
