This hotel is located right in the middle of the historic center. It is an old building, very charming with high ceilings, stone walls and wood floor. On the street level there is a garden side with live music every night and a bar and the restaurant on the other side. The rooms are quite spacious with nice big windows.... More

We chose this place based on the many good comments but must say was not at all impressed. The location is nice and the building from the outside too but it really needs some paint and refurbishing on the inside. Room size was adequate but was over the kitchen so in the evening you get the noise of the extractor... More

Bartholomeu is more famous as the restaurant in Paraty, but they have about 4 rooms upstairs operating as a b&b, almost as a side business. Nevertheless they do so with care. Comfortable rooms, good ac, clean, many cable stations Nice small staff. Guests benefit from the cooking right downstairs, huge breakfast and the very well set restaurant, which has gourmet... More

We loved the room and the location at the hotel. It is in the historic district in Paraty. We stayed for 6 nights right around New Years. Being located near the center of everything has it's advantages. The hotel also has a restaurant and it was one of the better ones in the area. We ate at the hotel every... More

Located in the centre of this picturesque town, this beautiful old place is conveniently located but can be noisy, in particular when there is a festival, which may end as late as 2AM. Otherwise, there is always a bit of chitchat ongoing in the patio, even in the late evening. We stayed here for two nights, and enjoyed the atmosphere... More

We only stayed one night in this charming Pousada but absolutely loved it. The service was excellent, the Pousada is ideally located in the center of the historic town and the hotel itself has a very welcoming and homey feeling. Some reviewers complained about the noise from the restaurant but it was very light and doesn't go on until late... More

A traditional colonial style house, Pousada Bartholomeu is a pleasant place to stay with just five rooms. We booked three of them for our group. Rooms are tidy, simple, pleasant and nice. Front rooms have a balcony to the street, the other rooms go to the back garden. Beds are comfortable, bathrooms are simple but in order. Breakfast is excellent,... More

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
