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

Staff- friendly... More

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.

First of all, the staff was very good, helping us for anything we need regarding our baby, questions about the town, and general requests. They speak portuguese, of course, and some spanish, I can´t say anything about english because I spoke with them in portuguese. The pousada itself is very nice, modern, bright rooms with small fridge and lcd tv.... More

Stayed here for our honeymoon. There were few other guests so we had the place to ourselves. Great service and convenient location! Very good breakfast buffet and nice rooms! Loved having a refrigerator in room and room service available too. Good price- only drawback is no beach view or private balcony/patio.

From the day we checked in we had an amazing experience there. Everybody was very polite and nice to answer all of our requests. The room we had was very big and clean, even we had a very big TV to watch a few cable channels by night. The breakfast was also great, an the location is fabulous. Thanks to... More
