Porto Alegre pousada with expat owner?

I have been to Brazil before and planning a return visit. Last time,the best service we received was when we stayed at pousadas where there was an expat owner- not the least because there was no language barrier. I am going to post on several boards for different locations that we are thinking of to get recommendations for pousadas with expat owners. What are the best expat pousadas in Porto Alegre?Please feel free to recommend other locations,as our plans are not at all fixed, other than spending about 6 weeks in Brazil.

Hi Jeff! There are very few pousadas in Porto Alegre ( I live in Germany, but I come from Porto Alegre) There are some good hotels in town, you can find many reviews of most of them here in tripadvisor. Porto Alegre is more like a business city than a tourist city but it´s a good base for visiting the "Serra Gaucha" area, with it´s canyons. Pls let me know should you be interested in the pousadas avaiable in the city or more info about Rio Grande do Sul State!

Best regards!

thanks. I have been to Brasil before,but the language barrier was a bit difficult in terms of getting as much information from the hosts of the pousadas. They pretty much all seemed willing to give info, I just had a hard time understanding what they were trying to tell me. I will look more at Serra Gaucha.

Hard to find a Pousada in Porto Alegre.

Maybe a good hostel like Poa Eco Hostel;
