We booked this Pousada because it is one of very few that accepts dogs. We were positively surprised about the great location: only few minutes from the city center of Petropolis but still in the middle of nature on a hill behind the imperial palace within a gated community.

Hidden and removed from the centre of town. But close enough to walk back and forth easily. Simple, clean and quiet with a really good Brazilian breakfast. The staff were attentive and helpful. Services was just excellent.

Located on a hill rising above the city center, the pousada is within easy walking distance of all attractions yet has spectacular views, the feeling of being in the country, and lovely grounds. The pousada is beautifully landscaped, and the staff is attentive. We stayed in a chalet, which was clean and had phone and TV. All front desk staff... More
