Well located in the city centre and short walk to old town. Nice pool and friendly staff, but shame they didn't speak much English though. Rooms are basic, comfortable and air conditioned. Wifi in the city is rubbish so so é time we would get good signals in the lounge. Recommended and would stay again.

A 2 minute walk and you are in the heart of the historical town, so on that basis alone it gets good marks. The hotel was clean and basic like many pousada's. Breakfast had a decent selection and choice. Small pool but set in pleasant surroundings. No parking offered by them, so I would imagine at peak times it could... More

The hotel has everything to be perfect but.... The location is great only a short walk from the historical center, the rooms are not big but enough for a weekend Although it is located on the main road the rooms do not suffer from the noise and the patio area (breakfast / pool area) is great with plenty of vegetation...

This is a perfect place 2 stay in Paraty. Wonderful food in the restaurant. Clean rooms, lovely swimming pool and lovely people. I feel very privileged that I could stay here. If possible I will return to this pousada

The pousada (which is actually a hotel) is a bit old with rooms smelling humidity. The shower and towels alone would merit changing to another pousada. The price was fair (BRL 230) but for BRL100 you can get a better pousada in the historic center.

We were pleasantly suprised. From the outside the street and the exterior of the pousada did not really impress. When we were chauffeured here I did immediately notice that our fellow shuttle bus travelers were quite jealous of this place. When we stepped inside I could imagine why. Classy, spacious and very clean bed rooms with a really proper bathroom.... More

Very charming hotel. Not very impressive on the outside, but really cozy on the inside. Open court hallways with rooms and a center court with a swimming pool. This court also has a view on the open lobby with dining facility. Perfect walking distance to the center and the harbor. The hotel manager was very helpful in arranging a trip... More

This was a reasonable hotel in a good location a few minutes walk from the old town and round the corner from the bus station. Rooms were clean and nicely decorated although in the 5 nights we spent here our toiletries were not replenished. The pool area was a bonus and the breakfast reasonable. The wifi did not work well.... More

This is a lovely, simple hotel. The staff are very helpful, the rooms spacious, beds comfy and shower powerful enough, and the pool is of a good size. The breakfast was varied and of good quality. There is a well stocked and very reasonably priced bar, serving very good caipirinha all day and night to residents. The hotel is within... More
