What a lovely poussada. In fact, there is a special feeling as soon as you enter the front door! Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Beautifully decorated public area; huge bedroom with sea or garden views; fabulously comfortable bed; lovely bathroom; excellent breakfast; and magnificent view from the rooms and pool terrace. No shampoo provided, but when we requested some it... More

We got a triple-bed bedroom on the 2nd floor for the weekend in Buzios. The hotel has a good location on the hills of Joao Fernandes beach which you can walk about 5-10 mins to the beach, however, you'll need a taxi to go to the central area. Breakfast is well-served and you have got a decent view of the... More

Weekend in Buzios. A brilliant idea, romantic, but not in the summertime. We were at the Pousada San Francisco last weekend. We chose a superior room. Beautiful view from the balcony. The view is the highlight of the inn. And maybe the only one. The suite, which looks clean, had a dirty hammock on the balcony. I like to use... More

In Buzios a really nice place to stay - a little bit outside of the towncenter - but the location on top of a hill offers a nice view. We had a rent-a-car so we could get around easily. Breakfast was fine - rooms simple but clean and nice. We can recommend the B&B

this pousada had amazing views (when it was not raining). the staff is extremely pleasant though they speak very limited english. the rooms are pretty basic, but clean. because of the location of the pousada, in the middle of the mountain and among thousands of trees-- we were exposed to a TON of insects: ants (which looked like they were...

The "pousada San Francisco" (incorrectly named on this site as "A San Francisco de Buzios" was better than we imagined even though the pictures on their website showed a gorgeous view and quaint decor. After going up a literally San Francisco (California) style super steep road we parked in the 3 parking spots in front of the hotel. As soon... More

We just came back from Buzios. We stay at Pousada San Francisco for the second time... and it seems to get better and better! The Pousada is on the top of a "morro" (a Brasilian version of a hill) and offers outstanding views from every room. Even on rainy days seem to have a special magic, you can enjoy the... More
