What a great place to stay!. Beautiful location, wonderful view, great food and a friendly staff. And a comfortable loungebar at the beach where you can eat excellent grilled fish! Aart Vogel, Amsterdam The Netherlands

We arrived at Insolito Hotel after leaving a disappointing hotel which had originally booked... To arrive at this place was like heaven, the vibe was super cool and chilled, the decor was hippie chic, and view was divine! We had a lovely deluxe room with balcony, great size and lovely bathroom with a balcony over looking their beach club. We... More

We arrived to be pleasantly surprised by our welcome and the ambiance and superficial quirky look. We were shown to room 17 - down a level which smelled of toilet sanitation perfumed blocks to the extent we had to immediately open the doors and look at the view!!1 The view did not exist as it was covered by overgrown palms....

I had mixed feelings when we booked the Insolito but when I left I wished I had stayed longer. Firstly if you like a traditional hotel you will find this place rather quirky. No two rooms are the same so each has a style dictated by the owner however the one I stayed in called Fotographia had the most amazing... More

-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. The rooms are excellent and well appointed, all the other gust areas are spotlessly clean and well maintained, the accommodation is surpassed by the dedication of the friendly and professional staff who made our stay at Insolito a highlight of a...
