-Staff hardly speaks and understands English. This is really a big thing. -Inefficient staff. Orders take a really long time since language and hospitality skills are really poor -Messy beach area. Used towels, plates and glasses everywhere. -Housekeeping needs improve cleaning of the rooms. Hair from previous guest were still in our shower. Stains on bed linen. Sandy floors. No... More

Why this hotel does not rank higher in trip advisor puzzles me. Everywhere we went in Buzios did not have the stunning view or charm of this boutique hotel. Once owned by French Countess Emanuelle Meeus de Clermont Tonnerre the 24 room boutique hotel is full of nooks and crannies. The public areas contain stunning pieces of furniture and art.... More

Buzios is a paradise and Insolito Hotel is the perfect place to stay. Well located in Ferradura Beach, great view, friendly staff, very kind owners and wonderful amenities. Very clean and conformable rooms with a wonderful breakfast. The landscape was outstanding and the atmosphere couldn't be any better. I have no words to describe how satisfied and pleased my husband... More

I have traveled quite a bit around the world and to what I thought to be amazing places... till I've got to know Insolito, right in my country. When we arrived we were welcomed by a friendly and professional staff, we loved every detail of the hotel and the room. We spent 3 days there and did not step out... More

We stayed in this amazing hotel during our stay in Buzios and were blown away by the beauty. Once owned by French Countess Emanuelle Meeus de Clermont Tonnerre the 24 room boutique hotel is a well edited art gallery more than it is a hotel. The public areas contain stunning pieces and create small vignettes that add to the charm... More

We had a wonderful 5 night stay in an idyllic location away from the hustle and bustle of Rio.

I stayed with my boyfriend at insólito and had a great time. The hotel is very romantic and our room had a balcony overlooking the ocean At night they had live music playing clasic brazilian songs. Also the food is very good. If you are looking for a romantic hotel to relax, I would recommend insólito.

I've stayed alone in this hidden boutique hotel for few nights last january. Most probably I am not the only one saying this, but the location right by the Ferradura Bay is itself a good reason to travel there. Staff, expecially the reception, have been always friendly and attentive interacting in a genuine and spontaneous way. There was surely room... More

We stayed for 6 days to relax after a week of travelling. On arrival we were allocated our room which was ok..not spectacular despite the cost. Noted that all glass windows had gaps and needless to say we were eaten alive by mosquitos despite being given insect repellant. Our biggest gripe was the service. Despite 4 people standing around the... More
