This place is a complete rip off and is awful. The rooms are the size of prison cells, the staff is rude and not helpful, the internet only works in the lobby and sucks. It's not a design hotel. It's a piece of garbage Pousada that shouldn't charge more than R$100 per night. We got food poisoning from the food.... More

The rooms are shocking and resemble prison cells rather than what is was expecting and viewed on the website considering I was ripped off and paid Us510/day. To avoid utter disappointment, please stay away. No English channels on TV, wifi is pathetic and kitchen staff are grumpy and grubby.

We keep coming back here always. The rooms are very comfortable and the pool is great to chill out. The location is great, since it is walking distance from Rua dad Pedras, but keep the noise and the crowd away! The breakfast by the pool is great and a sauna after a day at the beach is mandatory!

Silvio was so helpful because anything you asked him to do was done immediately. I would give him a job tomorrow morning. Theresa once again was extremely helpful and especially when I became sick - she and Camilla did everything possible to help me. Valter was just a thoroughly nice person. The pool area is beautiful and the location is... More

We stayed here for 5 nights on our honeymoon recently. On entering we thought it looked very nice and modern and Hoolio was extremely helpful and nice. We entered the room, which has concrete flooring, the bathroom is very small, not like the pictures on the website. When I went to take a shower the shower door came off! The... More

Pousada Design in Buzios is a short 10-15 min stroll to the centre of town. The rooms are clean and modern in styling and the buffet breakfast gives a great range including: egg, sausages, bread, cake, croissant, museli, juice, ham cheese etc. The OUTSTANDING feature at this accommodation is the staff. The day staff speak excellent english, are very helpful... More

This hotel has some advantages. Breakfast is good and it is located on a street with little traffic and noise. Cleaning is first class. So to the more negative aspects: Bathrooms are extremely tiny in the standard rooms. Do not get confused by the huge bathroom with modern tubs on the hotels website. That is De luxe rooms of which...

I stayed only 1 night at this Pousada. It is an excellent accomodation. Clean and calm. Friendly staff. Good breakfast and nice garden/swimming pool/sauna. It is not directly located at the waterfront.You have to walk 15 minutes to Buzios Centro (Rue das Pedras), not a problem for me. Room had airco, but was a bit humid. Could be that it... More

Its like you have come to an oasis when you pass through the imposing wooden doors. The design is tasteful contemporary from the front lobby to the rooms. There is an inviting pool but it was too cool to use it, unfortunately. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty and complete with creme brulee! The staff are friendly and the managers speak... More
