We stayed here 2 nights, the hotel is a colonial house that is refurbished. It is neat with original doors and wood shutters so it has a 1700s feel, but the beds were comfortable, it was clean, had a great bathroom, we slept upstairs in the loft and our kids downstairs on twin beds so it was perfect at night....

My wife and I stayed 2 nights in this lovely old Portugese mansion. It is situated in the heart of old town Paraty and is staffed by very friendly and helpful staff. If you need some laundry done this is the place to have it done. A bagful of clothing (up to 20 items ) for a ridiculously low cost.... More

What a beautiful place! Beware that the rooms in the main building are of a much higher quality than the annex. We originally booked a room in the annex but changed after one night (We found the original room to be quite small and dark and also found a creature in there!) to room a room in the main building...

Pousada do Ouro is a charming place located in the heart of the old town within walking distance to the best Paraty has to offer. Very nice old 18th century Portuguese mansion with beautiful garden and nice little swimming pool. Very comfortable and really stylish.

Enjoyed a 5 day stay here. Probably had one of the larger rooms (20) which was comfortable, though with rustic charm rather than all mod cons. It felt like you were living somewhere with a lot of history. Staff couldn't have been more helpful and spoke good English. Breakfast buffet was good. The pool is small but a treat to... More

A three-night stay the weekend prior to Carnaval was both relaxing and rewarding. Although we encountered rain, it did not diminish our enthusiasm for the lovely, comfortable ambiance and the inn's service with a smile. We found everything worth seeing within easy walking distance, especially some of the town's top restaurants. Breakfast was delicious and when we asked reception about... More

The hotel is elegant and exotic with many well established historical features. It's a real home to the stars and the staff certainly made me feel special throughout my stay. Excellent breakfast in the morning and great cocktails in the evening by the pool. The location is perfect to explore the natural of beauty of Paraty. The Mamanguá tropical fjord... More

You sense it's going to be special when you see the photos of previous guests such as Mick Jagger at Reception. I bet he's been to quite a few good digs but surely none better than the Pousada do Ouro. Firstly it's in the most gorgeous picture-perfect World Heritage old town just a few hours south of Rio. Totally unspoiled... More

We stayed for 3 nights in November 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a building so full of interest. The pousada is located in the heart of the old town which is a fascinating place for wandering take a guided tour - it's surprisingly interesting (spot the fiddler crabs!). The hotel has a lovely pool and garden area for... More
