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

We had a wonderful experience at the pousada over New Years. Small, charming with an excellent staff. Walking distance to the beach and the nightlife. We made the short drive to some other beaches nearby. Would definitely go back.

I have spent there 4 nights with a couple of friends. The Pousada La Chimere is lovely, clean and modern. It is very well located, very close to the Praha dos Ossos and few minutes from the "city centre". The staff is super friendly and very helpful! I will definitely recommend it!

I stayed at this lovely small hotel with my daughter and granddaughter. The position was perfect, just a short walk to the bustling town centre but quiet and peaceful. The staff were excellent. On arriving home in the UK my granddaughter realised she had left her computer tablet in the room. I contacted the hotel and as I was returning... More

When it comes to choosing a place to stay when traveling, remember that the main principle is one: location, location, location. La Chimere has the best location in Buzios, whether you are on business, leasure, vacations on your own or vacations with family. Right by Praia Dos Ossos, a few yards from the main street in Buzios, Rua Das Pedras,... More

We stayed in La Chimere for 5 nights, and we liked it very much! Our room, located on the first floor, was clean and had an adequate size. The bathroom was modern and big, but the water flow in the shower was poor. The common area was cosy, with magazines, books, and a lot of place to sit down. There... More

A wonderful Pousada, charming and very well decorated. The staff is very attentive. The location is perfect, right on a quiet little praca and within walking distance to the center of the city. The rooms are clean, discrete and well appointed. My only suggestion to raise this to a five star rating would be to invest in some down pillows.... More

This is my second stay and there have been many upgrades and changes to the property that make this already charming pousada even more wonderful. New bathrooms, a Jacuzzi pool, and WiFi through out the property including in the rooms. La Chimere is in a great location, easy access to many beautiful beaches and the centro district are all with... More

We booked a standard room at this lovely hotel. The room was good, view across quiet cobbled street to the hills behind. Brilliant breakfast AND it goes on until 11am! Friendly staff, free wifi throughout plus 3 computers to use. Décor is bright and airy with comfy chairs and sofas in various open plan rooms downstairs. The courtyard is a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
La Chimere receives you with a very special architecture, fruit of a delicate equilibrium between an outside buziano style and a sophisticated, modern interior and with clear and broad spaces. In a very beautiful internal tropical courtyard, is located the swimming pool. A true one oasis because in being a matter of an architecture, the external noises don't arrive. The peace and tranquility reign in this courtyard where the swimming pool is transformed in the "beach after the beach". ... more   less
