Hi, I am ~30yr old female -stayed here for 2 nights as a part of an Intrepid tour (Jan 2015). I can't tell you how much it cost per night however, in my opinion, it would fall into the $50-$80 per night bracket depending on the time of year. Pros: -Within walking distance to restaurants and shops (both new and... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 days with our tour group with Gap Adventures. I feel like we actually lucked out with this one as we got an upstairs room (could be because we didn't have much luggage..it would be very difficult to drag your stuff up the narrow stairs). We heard from our fellow travellers that downstairs is... More

Positives: internet works well enough to post this review. Location is good (but there are plenty of other pousadas just as conveniently located or better). Breakfast was good, great coffee. Negatives: oh dear, where to start? Mould everywhere. Everything smells of damp. Constant noise as we are on ground floor on the main courtyard, much of it from staff. Cheap... More

This was part of our gapadventures tour and far the worst place in Brazil. The mold in the bath and bedroom (see photos) have a horrific smell. The only window to the crowded small patio area was kept closed as everyone can see u if lying in bed. Open the door and you are meet by the reception lady and... More

It's about a 5 minute walk from the bus station & a 3 minute walk from the old town... so the location is perfect! The room wasn't impressive... small, nothing fancy - bed was kind of hard & the outlets didn't work that well. However, it was clean & the AC worked well. The breakfast was pretty good - fruit...

Situated within easy walking distance to old town this was a nice place to stay, unfortunately we didn't have the good weather. Our room was upstairs, bright but very noisy from other guests and street noise. Beds are typically uncomfortable which seems to be the 'norm' over here. Breakfast is basic. We discovered on arrival that if it rains a... More

The sisters are very pleasant, the Pousada is fine and the only negative is that it's a bit overpriced for what you get. Rooms are clean and well set up. The rooms are well set up and breakfast. The jacuzzi is in the middle of the courtyard and judging by the leaves in it the water it doesn't get used... More

Very nice atmosphere in this lovely little pousada in the heart of Paraty, very clean and charming. Good breakfast as well and within walking distance of anything you could want to see in Paraty. Rooms are spacious, and well equiped, TV fridge, some have air conditioning and if not then they have a fan which works well as well to... More

We had just one night in Paraty this trip and this pousada was suggested by a restaurant owner close by (subject of another review I hope) Our room was small but clean and fairly quiet for being on the ground floor and just behind reception! The bathroom was small also but very clean and all we needed. Breakfast was a... More
