This is a tiny little poussada with 4 or 5 rooms. we had one of the two which had a balcony and view (ie the one of the best rooms) BUT they are absolutely TINY..just enough room to walk around the bed, no room to put your thinkgs away-no drawers, a tiny bit of shelf on which we stacked our...

This was our favorite place we stayed while in Brazil! It is very artsy (the owner is an artist and the rooms and walls are filled with her work). Beware: it is not a great spot for very large people, as the rooms/bathrooms are small and the is no elevator- instead there is a narrow winding staircase that goes up... More

Nice location, confortable bedrooms, cozy place. Great breakfast and afternoon tea. The staff is friendly, but they could be a little smarter. When we arrived the air conditioning was in repair, and later that afternoon it was working fine. I would recommend this place and I sure would be back. The low point is that it doesn't have a parking.

This was a place to remember. The pousada is on a gorgeus, quiet street. The decor was so unique and tasteful. I loved my room - it was very comfortable and had a beautiful view. The little touches are just fantastic. The staff are kind, and the breakfasts are really, really good!! I enjoyed nice wine at the little bar,... More

This was a great pousada, not because of the physicality, but because of the staff. They were amazing!!! The pool is too small and cold to be swimmable. The breakfast was all homemade by the staff... homemade cake, pasty, fresh fruit, eggs. The best breakfast by far in our entire time in Brazil. Location was fine. It was in the... More

We stayed at the Pousada Arte Urquijo for three nights. Art abounds everywhere...not just the kind you frame. The layout and various amenities are unique and authentic. The entire inn speaks to its owners personality, and it is hard not to appreciate this. There is private parking, small pool, free WiFi in the lobby, a bar where new guests receive... More

Way beyond our expectations, Pousada Arte Urquijo offered us the most delightful stay in the beautiful historical centre of Parati. Beautifully decorated, the pousada occupies a typical colonial building in the heart of Paraty, with very cozy and romantic rooms, serving exquisite breakfasts, and a small but nice swimming pool.

Couldn't be better, cleaner, cozier and more beautiful!!! To start with, you receive upon check in a pair of flip flops, and your shoes stay at the reception. The slippers are a gift, which you can take home. The place is simply the coziest I've stayed in lately. The breakfast is very good and healthy and they have a dream... More

This pousada was very comfortable, quiet, and clean. It is owned by two artists who have used the art to decorate the bed and breakfast. The decor is very tasteful and romantic. A perfect place to get away as a couple. The breakfast was great, always more food than you have a room for and fresh fruit every morning. The... More
