A lovely place to stay. Very quiet and private. Very nice rooms and efficient and professional staff. Pool area is very small but we were the only ones ever there, so it was spot on. Breakfast was nice, the cinnamon pancakes are a must, had them every morning!

Pousada Arte Urquijo is a charming inn nestled into the fishing village of Paraty Brazil. The quaint inn includes unique art in the lobby and a terrific, full breakfast which we ate every day by a lovely pool on the interior courtyard. Our room had a balcony facing the harbor and had a comfortable bed, linens, plus bathrobes. The staff...

This is a very quaint, rustic boutique hotel in a very nice little town. Excellent breakfast, very clean place. The rooms are minute, be warned, we spent four nights here. Our room could be accurately described as the perfect machine gun nest. Small and with little slit Windows and a wide view of any approaching enemy. The first day I...

Our visit to Paraty was wonderful. We made a 2 day visit to this beautiful town while our travel to Rio. This hotel we stayed at was quite unique and very charming. The owner is the artist who has a display of her work thru out the hotel. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit Paraty. My...

We were privileged to spend 2 nights here. We arrived at 1 AM off a flight from Europe and had to cross a square from the pier to get to the hotel on foot as the pousada is right in the historical part of town where cars can´t go. (Taxis and Paraty Tours which run the transfer from Rio and...

What a charming little inn right by the pier in Old Town. Of the four different accomodations on our trip, the Arte Urquijo was, by far, our favorite. The lobby is incredibly beautiful with a perfect harmony of art and garden. You will be asked to leave your shoes at the door in exchange for straw sandals. We chose to...

This is a little magical place in the heart of the old-town. It is still the original building and it adds to the charm of the old-town. Because it is in it's original building, it comes with those characteristics, smaller passageways, thinner walls, smaller bathrooms. Don't expect the N.American size rooms/bathrooms. You won't find that here, thank goodness ;-). There...

Open the door to the Pousada Arte Urquijo and you are greeted with the Japanese tradition to remove your shoes. You are given thick straw sandals which you will wear during your visit and upon departure you get to take home as one of your remembrances of your special visit to .Paraty.Walk through the charming lobby surrounded by beautiful art,...

Location is in the old town ( close to the sea) and is perfect for exploring Paraty. ( SatNav struggles to get you there over the last few hundred metres) This is a tiny pousada full of local paintings and sculptures, with a small number of very quaint bedrooms. A cosy bar with excellent caipirinhas and wines and likewise a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in an old restored "sobrado" (two story house) where its architectural style and the preservation of original materials, including stonewalls, wooden furniture and many wooden details stand out. Some of the woods come from species now extinct. The Pousada is located in the historical center next to the Santa Rita Church, with panoramically view of the bay of Paraty and the Bocaina Mountains. It has a secret view of the roofs of the magical town. This is the perfect place for those who come to Paraty looking to unite with nature. Paraty is the most charming historical port town in the country, its geographical location and natural aspects captivate the tourist and inspire painters and photographers. ... more   less
