Strangest hotel I've experienced in a long time. When you approach, it's tightly shuttered up, as if the building is abandoned. No lights or lit sign. A knock on the door though, produces a hotel staffer who peeks out, and three loudly barking dogs. The "lobby" was filled with papers and dusty books, and a very grumpy cat. Air conditioning?...

A pleasant stay here, the owner was particularly friendly and we especially enjoyed the company of the cats and dogs there! Slight issue with hot water on the first day but ok on the second. Overall, clean, pleasant and full of character!

Really lovely and interesting house. Location couldn't be more central and the rooms have beautiful views over the square. The lady who runs it is exceptionally helpful and friendly and speaks perfect english. Breakfast is an absolute feast.

I enjoyed this place. It oozed with old-world charm, especially the lobby and breakfast areas. The black cats fit right in, as did the five dogs kept by the owners. We enjoyed getting to know Cafe, a stray lab that the owners took in five years ago. What a life he leads! The owners let him out in the morning... More

Amazing hotel! Personal and relaxed atmosphere and stunning vintage interior design in an old beautiful house. Cool owner who loves and takes care of stray cats and dogs. Very helpful staff. I highly recommend it!

The hotel is right in the centre of Paraty, with a short walk from the parking area in front of the church so you don't have to drag your bags too far across the cobbles. The staff were very friendly and the lady at the front desk speaks good English. I arrived very late at night (1am), but there was... More

With a location right in the centre of the cobbled streets of Paraty, you won't find a better priced option in this area of town. The 18th century rustic feel to the place adds to it's charm, and the lady who runs it speaks almost perfect english. Whilst the rooms are relatively basic (and you'll have to settle for wooden...

I'd really advice this hotel to everyone. The spot is perfect, braekfast excellent (visited by a hummingbird), the owner a wonderful lady with a big love for her dogs and cats. The rooms are very proper. We were so lucky having a corner room, very light, with a magnificant view. Also very affordable 130R a night (May)

A fellow guest pointed out that this building, built in the 18th century, is older than my entire country (USA). You half expect to pay a museum entrance fee when you peek over the weathered wood front door. Instead, you're greeted by cachorros (dogs), gatos (cats), and a lovely woman with a dry sense of humor. The beds are as... More

This is the kind of hotel that takes you back in time. It's in a colonial property that is well ver a hundred years old, the reception is huge and from dark and slightly dusty wood. Rooms are rather small. The wifi works perfectly and is free, which makes it a great place to hang out. I worked a little... More
