100 yards from the sea this B&B is excellent. Comfortable rooms, quiet efficient a/c, superb breakfast. Combine this with an excellent and willing staff makes for a fantastic stay. The resort caters for Brazilians and Spanish speaking South Americans and as we appeared to be the only English speakers in the resort, this was no problem.

Reception staff were not very friendly. we were informed that we would be able to leave the hotel between 12 am and 3 am however the doors would be locked. We waited for 20 minutes to be able to get back in the hotel. Breakfast was good, selection of food was fresh and the variety was quite nice.

I consider the La Chimere one of the Best Value properties in Buzios considering Price and Location, walking distance to Rua das Pedras and all its bars, restaurants and shops and also walking distance to Azeda/Azedinha Beaches.

I really enjoyed my stay at this pousada. My room with 3 single beds was spacious, clean and had everything I needed. The bathroom was huge which always is a nice surprise. It´s not so close to Rua das Pedras (10-15 min walk) but it's close to most beaches like Azeda/Azedinha. You won't need a car at all. Just walk... More

This is a great little pousada. it's right on the road, almost on Amacao beach. The rooms are so pretty ans quirky and impeccably clean. There are lots of peaceful little alcoves where you can sit and read, or chat and admire the ornaments. There is a small pool, which always seemed to be empty. Nice for a quick dip,... More

My family and I have been fortunate to stay at 5-star hotels and resorts worldwide. There are some destinations that just don't have the popular chain hotels and you need to make do with a local boutique. First, we love Buzios! It's got a certain vibe a la a Mediterranean beach village, but low key. Few Americans make us feel... More

So many wonderful things to say about La Chimere! In a nutshell- this place has it all for a lovely and lovely Buzios stay! Location- near and walkable to Centro so you can access all te restaurants, shops and markets. Also walkable to several of the better beaches and the best sunset spots in Buzios are steps away.

Very pleasant stay in La Chimere. Very nice building complex, nice rooms, very good breakfast and friendly staff. Very well located, only a few minutes walk to Praia do Ossos, Azeda e João Fernandes and the famous Rua das Pedras. Would definitely stay there again.
