Andreas and Matheus are a great team of hosts always available to help with recommendations of the city and with an eye to provide a comfortable stay when abroad! The Hotelinho offers everything one might need when travelling with a great homemade breakfast and a view over Urca and Cristo Rei. The location is perfect and the area very safe for night strolls, a drink at Bar da Urca and for a good night of sleep. Overall a trustful place to stay for a good price!
Staff very friendly / empleados muy amable
Bed not clean / cama no liempo.
Great location, nicely decorated, clean room and friendly helpful English speaking staff. I mention English speaking because if like me your Portuguese is rudimentary then a English speaker eases the transition from long haul flight to culture overload. Safe area, felt at home. I was offered a room to sleep off my flight after arriving early and then the same was offered on check out. A really kind touch and much appreciated. Buses stop right outside the hotel getting you out to the main streets where you can change buses to get everywhere in the city and the bus also drops you off outside the hotel door. Great for getting around and getting back. Lots of taxis outside too. Sugerloaf Mountain is a stones throw away which is perfect for watching the sunset then heading back within easy walking distance to the hotel. Views of Urca Bay and Corcorvado is an added bonus. Vegetarian food was a little hard to find in the restaurant downstairs be no big deal just a little better planning required.
No hot water which was not particularly uncomfortable considering how hot it was and also not unusual because it was the same in the 4* hotel in Copacabana. The voltage is also lower here so hairdryers and straightener are useless, not sure if there was a another socket in the room as I found in others places I stayed. Worth asking the staff if unlike me wearing a cap all day is not an option. No complaints really and I would stay here again and recommend it to friends and family.
Very nice and convenient location to visit Rio (particularly for Pao de Acucar) Bus stop and police station in front of the hotelinho so very convenient and secure Nice view for breakfast Clean
The location, staff friendliness, breakfast!
I got the most comfortable bed one could wish for! Result was a perfect sleep. Thanks to the best staff of Hotelinho Urca. Strongly recommend it!
First of all a hotel has very nice location in safe and beautiful Urca neighbourhood with mini police station 2 meters and bus station just 1 step away from a front door. These buses take you all directions in Rio. Secondly the staff itself make a place. Andreas and Mateas thank you for such great hospitality we received during our stay!! Hotel Urca is the place where you feel yourself very much welcomed and where people do care about your preferences, interests. We have prepared for the trip with some plans however it was very useful to get some advices and tips from the staff. There was Sugar Mountain view from our balcony and we were waking up from birds signing, delicious breakfast from local specialties on hotel terrace with a bay view and Jesus in the sky. Staying in Urca hotel was one of the factors that made our trip to Rio an unforgettable experience.
Location Staff Coffee
- great location in Urca, surrounded by interesting Brazilian modern architecture and nice bars and fish restaurants - great fresh breakfast - really friendly hosts - very tasteful furnished and arranged - wonderful view from the common terrace
Urca is a quiet and beautiful neighborhood, you can walk with peace and security. The service at the hotel is very nice, with excellent d breakfast and also great price for Rio de Janeiro. Comfortable beds and good shower. The visual of Guanabara Bay is fantastic. A few meters you have supermarket, grocery stores, ATM. I will return for sure.
Andreas and Matheus make you feel at home and are really helpfull. the situation of the hotel is very good in a secure place without problems. Do not hesitate one minute!!!
Having to leave Hotelinho Urca and the friendly atmosphere
Everything! Lovely setting, wonderful helpful staff, gorgeous room with view of the Big Jesus across the marina. Good access into town if you want it by bus and taxi. Good bars underneath and in local area. We stayed in a faceless hotel in Copacabana before we came here but this was so much better. Highly recommended.
Staff - especially Matheus and Andreas were outstanding! Urca is a delightful, quiet, safe neighborhood in Rio...& the view from the "reception" gathering area on the 3rd floor can be breathtaking! Breakfast hardy and good. Would return (w/new knees :-})
Lots of stairs, no lift. (My hubby has high mileage knees, so after a couple of days, in addition to the walking about parts of the city, the stairs were wearing. Rooms are VERY cozy, but spotless and comfortable. Value overall was not favorable, but we visited during World Fifa Cup. The majority of rates and fares were not a + cost/benefit in terms of value. This was not just an issue at Hotelinho Urca in Rio - or regrettably, in non-game cities or areas in July 2014. Practice for the Olympics, I guess ;-)
Great staff, beautiful views of bay and Cristobalite Redentor, great breakfast
Maybe walkup, but staff carried luggage, so no problem
Hotelinho is very unique and great. Andreas and Matheus are always willing to help and go the extra mile for their guests. The breakfast and cleaning staff are also really nice. Wifi worked 100% the time in all areas. Breakfast (with a view) was always well done with some hot food served too which was a nice change in Brazil. The place was looked after - neat, tidy and really clean. Most importantly the bed was very comfortable. The place is situated in a quiet part of Rio but is really easy to get to and out of, whether it is day or night. After coming from the annoying tourist parts, this quiet place is perfecto! Food to eat is at the door, as well as a pharmacy, bar and police unit - extremely safe place. Rio Sul shopping is walk-able and I did it many times over. Highly recommended it and I will be back!
nice people very clean good location nice view
allot of steps we had a suite but the air con was only in the bedroom!!! WiFi didn't work in the bedroom
The Staff was more the excellent and very helpful with provide tips on how to get around Rio. Very safe and convenient location to stay while in Rio.
It was a little tricky to find the door to Hotelinho Urca Guest House from the street so make sure Google streetview before you go or have the address with street number available to ask someone near by when you arrive.
Great hotel with very convenient location. Andreas was a wonderful host. We could not have had a better experience in Rio. The prices were higher than normal due to the World Cup, but still relatively reasonable compared to other locations.
What a gem of a place. The room was clean and comfortable, the small kitchen in the mini apartment was very useful. Excellent breakfast, with great home made food, breads, cakes and jams. The views from the terrace are stunning, with Christ the Redeemer looking down on you across the water. Shops and a cafe are in walking distance and an atm in the pharmacy next door are all add to the great location, with the beautiful red beach just a ten minute walk around the corner. Last but not least the staff are great, Andreas, Mattheus and Jimmy are all very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.
Very nice butique hotel in beautiful, quiet neighbourhood, cozy, comfortable rooms. Amazing view on the Corcovado and the Urca bay. Tasty breakfast and good coffee. Very friendly personel that will help you organize your stay and give valuable tips.
Staff was excellent! Felt like you were staying with friends in Rio. Good location off the beaten path...but with easy access to the beaten path. Very safe area. Beautiful views from our suite.
We didn't like that we had to leave.
