“Excellent Choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

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.

Looking like a Swiss chalet, Monte Imperial does not feel out of place in its surroundings.

One flight up (no elevators) from the lobby, our room was tiny and rustic, but comfortable with a pleasant view over the city.

Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful, with great meal suggestions and where to find a laundromat (hey, when you travel for 3 weeks with only carry on, you have to clean your clothes sometime :-)

Monte Imperial is a lovely place ,with beautiful views,the place stands on a hill so one can have some views of the city.The pousand is located in a very quiet place aldo in the city,you can even walk to the Royal Musuem (about 10 min-remember going down easier-but expect to walk in a little hill going to the Pousada-Taxi very easy to find,they will even call for you...). The pousada have beautiful gardens,delicious breakfast I even order a tea for me and 2 family members(a must do...).The mountain right in front is amaizing with a misty top that comes down in the evening,the weather in the summer time was about 75,so there isn't air condition but was so cool that didn't matter.
Expect to see hummingbirds and other beautiful birds and exotic plants,I went for a walk to a little road in the right side of the pousada from there there is a view of a beautiful mountain in Petropolis....I am a brazilian living in the USA but I will never forget Petropolis and this place ,I absolutelly will be staying there again.bBeautiful,beautiful,beautiful...

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 we encountered spoke English. The pousada has a swimming pool, sauna, and lots of outdoor sitting spots for reading or relaxing. Inside is a comfortable sitting area/lounge by reception and the bar, where guests can read, have a glass of wine, and even dine if they wish. We didn't feel like going out for dinner and took advantage of the meals the hotel is able to provide. Breakfast is a veritable banquet, served to classical music in the breakfast room. Blankets are provided but I saw no heater (many pousadas aren't heated); if traveling in the cold season, be prepared with proper clothing. Definitely a cut above other pousadas in its price range.
