Such a fantastic hotel. Peaceful and tasteful. We had the pool to ourselves. A couple of minor blips- the lad on reception did not explain the safe, and a lightbulb was missing in our room. However, the other receptionists were lovely, Alain in the breakfast room was outstanding, Paraty was so interesting.This hotel had such an exceptional setting.

We stayed for just one night, on our way to Sao Paulo. We took two rooms, as we were travelling with our adult children. I wish I could have stayed longer. Paraty itself is a lovely town but this hotel is truly exceptional. I felt transported into another world, an old world with charm and beauty. The staff are very... More

The quality of the Pousada overall was good-very good. Its not a hotel, and nothing in Paraty is anything close to an actual hotel... They are all Pousadas (Guest Houses/B&B), but this one was a particularly nice one. it is split into two buildings across the pedestrianised road, which wasnt a huge problem - the main building with reception, breakfast,...

We stayed here for 2 nights, because one was just too short. The place is really good also taking in account the very reasonable price. Good sauna and pool, nice room in a fantastic atmosphere in style. One of the best placed I stayed actually.

A very relaxing place to stay in charming rooms in this ancient Portuguese colonial town. Very close to all the good restaurants and shops. Close to the sea and harbour where you can take a boat trip to the nearby beautiful islands. Staff speak good English and everyone seems very friendly.

A very beautiful and well kept hotel, and we really do not have any complaints, but we came here from Ihla Grande and Sagu Mini Resort, that we adored, and this place kind of fell through. Can’t quite put my finger on what it was, but it lacked the homey feeling we found at Sagu. We couldn’t quite get comfortable... More

Pousada do Ouro is a great choice to stay in the historic center. Everything is a five minute walk. The staff is great - very accommodating in Portuguese or English. Keep in mind this is a historic inn. While the inn has some modern amenities, the rooms maintain an original feel. The doors and floor squeak like any other old... More

This was our luxury and relaxation after over 4 weeks of travelling around South America, using a variety of accommodations. Arrival: we arrived late after a very full day of travelling. We were shown directly to our room by a very pleasant man on the night duty. We were not made to complete registration forms, this was done the next... More

We stayed two nights and loved it. It is very well located right on the heart of the old town. The rooms are very clean and romantic. Lots of character. The breakfast was our best so far comparing to the other hotels we have stayed in Brazil. We had a couple massage at the spa, it was worth every penny.... More
