A group of 10 of us had this place to ourselves. Its a collection of rooms with a communal dining area which we were allowed to use to try out making some homemade caipirinhas. Great location and Paraty is so beautiful I would definitely retun. The staff were really welcoming and friendly and I would definitely stay there again. The... More

When we discovered that our first choice for accommodations in Paraty was closed for vacation at the time of our visit, we consulted the TripAdvisor reviews and decided to book Pousada dos Contos. Excellent choice! Location is very convenient to the historical part of town, the bus station, ATMs, etc. Very clean, nice breakfast, helpful owner and staff. We stayed... More

Cenral but in a quiet location just off the Main Street this small and friendly B&B was what we expected and the breakfast was good. Rooms clean and simple with ceiling fans. Air Con also available but at an extra price.

This simple Inn was very well located. The owner is very friendly and so is the staff. We have no major complaints. The breakfast was good and the room was decent. Maybe the garage was too small and the bed wasn't the best. But overall we were happy with it.

We chose this pousada because of the very positive reviews on TripAdvisor and felt completely misled. The people there are very nice and friendly, it is true, no complaint at all, and it is close to the historic town centre. However, when we went into our room we instantly felt depressed - I opened the shutters and there was a... More

If all you want in a B &B is comfort and cleanliness then you can't go past Contos. Its very affordable, well located and friendly staff, although English is bit of a problem. Breakfast is about average but adequate, overall a good choice for the price.

A very cosy place to stay off the main roads, but close to everything in the historical town. Beds are comfortable, the rooms clean and the breakfast simple but plentiful. Julia is a wonderful host and thoughtfully had a hot cuppa waiting for us on our return to the hotel after a torrential downpour-would definitely recommend.

We stayed there for two nights and mainly picked Pousada dos Contos based on the location, price and some good reviews. It is located in the center of Paraty but off the main road and just outside the "historical" part of town, so it is a bit more quite but still very close to everything. The room was very clean...

This place has almost everything we looked for. It is convieniently located in the center of Paraty, yet it is quiet. Furthermore, the service is great and it has very good beds! Just a good place, no frills.

Very clean, we stayed 2 nights, everything was just fine. Julia and staff were helpful explaining things about Party and with booking tours. Wish we had more time to sty longer. Bob C.
