The location is very good, right in the center. The rooms are clean, big and even if not a key points the variety of TV channels is appreciated (watching a movie in English after the diner is something I appreciate in holiday). On the other side, the internet connection is not good (when you plan your trip on a on... More

I had a really lovely experience at this hotel. It's right in the colonial center of the old town, and it's a stone's throw from restaurants and shops. The hotel staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, and they helped me to arrange several activities. I visited a distillery, had a massage, and really enjoyed everything I did while in town....

Myself and a couple of friends stayed here for two nights a few weeks ago. It's a really lovely pousada with great art deco. The room was a decent size, staff were friendly and helpful. We looked forward to the breakfast buffet everyday thanks to the cake and dulce de leite (there was lots of healthier options as well!). Its... More

Recommend this property for its terrific location, building with great character, friendly and good service. Rooms are comfortable and the staff is very helpful. Pool is attractive, albeit small in terms of useable swimming area.

We stayed here for two nights on our first visit at Parati. The Pousada is very well run and has some comfortable and stylish areas to relax in (lounge and outdoor bar by the poor). To be honest we felt that that the photos did not do it justice when we arrived. The rooms were clean and certainly adequate and... More

Lovely old pousada, very nicely decorated and very well kept for brazilian standards. Very central located. The rooms are very, very simple and noisy but functioning (nice shower). Still, the rest of the living areas make up for the room. The pool is small and nice. Good breakfast with lots of fresh choices, nicely served.

Mid-January, three of us spent three nights at Porto Imperial which is one of the four or five upscale pousadas in Paraty. The colonial town epitomizes the pousada dilemma of Brazil: boutique hotels run like chain hotels without personal touch. In Paraty, the exception is the pricey Casa da Turquesa which is managed by its lady owner. Located in the... More

....and obliging staff. There always seems to be a good English speaking staff member on duty which is very helpful. Importantly - in summer at least - Porto Imperial has a swimming pool, which is something many hotels and Pousadas in the historical centre do not have. You will appreciate this after a hot Paraty day I can assure you!... More

Positive: Nice pousada very well located in the historical part of Paraty. It has parking, pool and a very good breakfast. The premises are well maintained and our room was very clean. Although showing age. Negative: Very noisy air conditioner. We had a simple room, on the lateral street. Cars passing by, we were Lucky it was not busy season.... More
