The rooms are above the restaurant and sometimes they have live music, but for music lovers like us it was just nice with a bit of background music in the early hours of the night. If you're lucky (like us) you'll get the room, that has a bathroom with a tree outside where little monkeys sit and look at you.... More

Outside it is so sweet pousada all white and blue. Room was clean and vintage style which we loved. Shower has a trick for hot/cold water, call the reception if you have any trouble with it - it is easy to fix. They don't speak English! The breakfast was a bit strange but very good - one lady who doesn't... More

This Pousada is located in the heart of Paraty and offers good value for money. There is a restaurant on ground floor with live music playing. Depending on the room you get noise may be a problem as the music plays until 11 or 12 pm. The music is great but may not be to everyone's taste in particular if... More

Pousada Bartholomeu is a Sobrado (a 2 story house) painstakingly restored to revive its colonial past and very conveniently located in the center of Party's historic town, close to restaurants and cafes, close to the church square and easy access to one of the only parking lots, if you arrive by taxi and have luggage to drag to your hotel....

We stayed for 2 nights in Suite Azul which was beautiful. The bed was really comfy and the room was huge. There were 2 doors that opened out onto separate balconies overlooking the street below, which provided a great place to people watch. Breakfast was amazing, best we have had in Brazil so far. There was fresh bread, meats, cheeses,... More

We rented a 3person room for two nights. Our window looked over the courtyard but we were right above the kitchen. The lunchtime and dinnertime popularity of the restaurant meant that our room smelt of cooking all afternoon and the noise was ridiculous all night. There was also live music all night (until after midnight). After a long day, an... More

Very charming place in the middle of old historical centre of Parati. It has five rooms only but that is part of its beauty. Very nicely decorated with many details, serving very tasty breakfast (freshly squeezed juice is something to look forward to), attentive staff always happy to help (especially Ana Paula). We were staying in Suite Azul, with two... More

Pousada Bartholomeu is one amazing choice for couples passing by Paraty. I spent three nights in town with my girlfriend and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. There are only five rooms in the pousada, featuring balconies (looking out the garden and/or the backstreet - both pleasant to the eyes) and amazing and fresh (rather tropical) breakfast. The...

This charming Pousada was impeccably decorated. Staff helpful and friendly. Our room was large, balcony overlooking the stone streets of the historic district. We had our best meal in Paraty in the restaurant on the ground floor. Breakfast, included, was simple but ample. Fresh squeezed orange juice, coffee, fruits, yogurt, bread and a meat/cheese plate. Paintings by local artists in... More

We´ve spent two nights at Pousada Bartholomeu, in Paraty. Great staff, charming suites, top quality bathroom amenities, linen and towels. The Pousada Bartholomeu offers a fresh and healthy breakfast as well as very good restaurant with an consistent wine-list and a cozy open-air bar. Located in the middle of the old town, it makes easy to reach all the touristic... More
