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... More

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... More

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... More

Overall we left Arts Urquijo disappointed. We stayed over Easter and the cost of the room was very high perhaps due to the holiday. While we loved the location and the room itself, tho small, was quite comfortable we where disappointed with the service. We do not speak Portuguese and this was part of the problem. We stayed for 4... More

This is a very special place. The owners have an exceptional good taste of art and the place is packed with it. An experience in itself to just visit and tour, including all the rooms that each is different but all with good taste. Add good food and great cocktails or fruit juices to the exceptional service and fair prices... More

Hadn't heard of Parity 3 months ago, but I will make sure any travelers to Brazil I know go there! And this little boutique Pousada is something special. Cute rooms, lovely ambiance, sensational location and lovely staff make this ideal for time out of a hectic itinerary. ...and you can't beat that hammock .....

The smallest, the coziest !!! You can smell charm, class and art all around the antic building! It is full of art pieces and valuable tableware, lots of decorations and details reflecting excellent taste!!! If you are looking for a big American size rooms, don't bother to come there.

High attention to detail, luxurious decor and interiors, attentive staff, perfect location, extremely high level of charm and authenticity. Rooms are small but I'd rather have small with fully of charm than large and lifeless.

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
