Very beautiful hotel, perfectly located in the old center. The wodden flor and furniture give it a lot of charm, and the dogs are nice (and more often in the street than in the hotel). The owner is helpful and smiling : it's a perfect place to get into Paraty atmosphere.

This hotel is not for those looking for a traditional hotel-like environment. It does indeed feature a menagerie of animals in the lobby and the reception area is piled high with paper and many books. Unlike another reviewer here, we found the lobby and the cat to be very charming. The building is a throwback in time, with wonderfully high... More

As soon as you walk through the shutter doors you step right into a movie set. The family that runs the hotel are very sweet, the WIFI was solid, the breakfast was great and the location is amazing. A source of entertainment is 'Cafe', the household dog.

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...
