It was very difficult to find an accomodation in Rio with a good quality-price ratio. With the hotelinho, I am sure we made the best choice! The room was very comfortable and cozy, the view was awesome. The breakfast deserves a separate 5 star rating, it was sooo delicious! Everything home made! The hosts were attentive and friendly.

We found this place absolutely unique and very atmospheric. It is far from the tourist crowd but at the same time not far from the main attractions and major sights of Rio. It is a great choice if you are looking for more “carioca neighborhood” and one of a kind experience. The view from the main terrace is a stunner....

The Hotelinho is the best option near of Rio downtown. You'll have access of many bus lines in front of the hotel. At Urca neighborhood, the place has best prices, a delicious breakfast (included) and hosts who are awesome. And of course the skyline of Guanabara Bay is wonderful from the terrace.

Value for money places are really an issue in Rio as it appears. Knowing some locals they think that this place is definitely a good choice compared to alternatives where either the hotel itself or the environment are a problem. I agree with many comments in terms of breakfast and hospitality but the hotel itself would need some renovation and...

We found this to be a perfect location for our visit to Rio. Breakfast was plentiful with many home made items. Our host was very helpful and the staff very friendly. We had the front suite which has a wonderful view, but which was also over a popular grill restaurant. There are fine views from the roof terrace. The Urca...

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.”
