3 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

This is a very simple place so expectations should be set accordingly. It's OK for a short stay but probably not for anything beyond a few days. The location (in the newer part of town) is second to none. Just about everything is only a few minutes walk away. The room was basic but adequate enough for our 2 night... More

We stayed at this Pousada for 2 nights while visiting Paraty. The pousada is a 5 minute walk from the historic center. The staff was super friendly. The owner speaks perfect English and was very willing to offer guidance regarding what to see and do in Paraty/bus schedules/etc. The room we stayed in was quaint, simple and clean. The breakfast...

A small hotel close to the heart of Paraty. Very nicely decorated. Comfortable rooms, if a little cramped. Good breakfast and usable wifi. Nice shower. I was particularly impressed by their willingness to provide a very early breakfast so we could catch the first bus to Rio. Definitely a place that I would recommend. This hotel was one of over...

- Pros: friendly and attentive staff, clean and 5 minutes walk to the Historic Center of Paraty. - Cons: the queen size bed is actually a two single ones put together; the shower pressure is pretty weak; poor wifi and TV connections; noisy mini fridge; don`t accept neither credit nor debit cards.

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.
