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... More

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... More

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.

We stayed in the Hotelinho Urca for 7 nights. The staff spoke multiple languages and was willing to do whatever it took to make our trip the best experience possible. The view from the top patio is second to none in Rio. On clear nights you can see ther Christo lighting up the harbor below. Also, the corner was a... More

We stayed two nights at Hotelinho Urca. All rooms were decorated differently with great taste, we had a room on the terrace which was specious and clean.

A lovely warm welcome from the manager andreas. I would recommend staying in urca as it is away from the busy cocacabana area. The outstanding thing about this hotel is the view! Sitting on the terrace looking at christ the redeemer and the harbour. The door to the hotel could be better signed. Easy access to local transport.

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.... More
