We stayed for one night, wished it had been longer! Perfect location, only a block or two into the old town and a block or two away from the bus station. We had no problem walking everywhere from this hotel. There is coffee and cake in the afternoon in addition to a wide variety of food at breakfast. We had... More

We stayed at Talisma for 4 nights as a layover between São Paulo and Rio. The pousada is a perfect 10! Super clean, great breakfast, air conditioning and mini- fridge in the room, and perfect location. Considering the high prices of Paraty, Talisma was the best price option, but it offers so much more than just a great deal. The... More

Pousada Talisma is the best option in Paraty. The owner is a wonderful woman, who takes personal interest in your happiness, and who employs a friendly staff who make amazing bolos caseiros. It is located perfectly less than one block from the entrance of the old town, and one block from the rodoviária on a beautiful quite street. The breakfast... More

We really enjoyed our stay at pousada talisma. The proprietor and staff were so hospitable, we loved the special touch of having coffee and homemade cakes in the afternoon while taking in the gorgeous surrounding views. The pousada is comfortable, clean and our room had air conditioning and a small fridge which we found very useful. The pousada is very... More

This pousada is a very short walk from the Center. If you want to be in the middle of all the action, or close to the beach, this is not it. However, it was close to the bus stop as well. The pousadas close to the beach aren't worth it, since the beach itself has too many sea shells and... More

My boyfriend and I recently stayed here for 2 nights and had a wonderful experience. The family that owns the pousada is so helpful and accomodating going above and beyond for us. The breakfast was much more than I expected with a wide range of fruits, breads, meats, cheeses, coffee, tea, and fresh made juice (they made the juice using... More

We stayed in Pousada Talisma for 3 nights with our daughter 9-year old and really enjoyed it. Very good and genuine breakfast, nice room and excellent location. It is managed by a nice family Brasilian-Italian from Viareggio!!

We stayed here for 1 night. It is a nice place, very close to historical centre, restaurants, bus station. Our bedroom was a quirky attic room. The staff were very helpful allowing us a late check out. Breakfast was very good.

We (three friends) stayed here for one night recently. The location is great - close enough to the bus station to walk and close to the old part of town for exploring, shopping and eating. Staff were very friendly, lots of food available at breakfast and room was clean and very big with its own tv.
