Staff was excelent, friendly and helpful. The room was clean and well ventilated with enough room for 3 people. Bathroom spacious. Breakfast was very good, fruits, cheeses,... More

Located half block from Praia dos Ossos & all water taxis to take you to great beaches like Praia João Fernandes. No need for regular taxi, make sure you take the van/bus 1 block from La Chimère that runs almost every 5 mins to all important spots in the area including a spectacular lookout point Mirante do Forno.

First of all, the service was excellent....everyone on staff was friendly, helpful and couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. The room was clean; large bathroom; the air conditioning worked very well. Location was superb---walking distance to the beach, pier, water taxi and shops and restaurants. Decor, furniture and landscaping of the pousada were absolutely charming and stylish. Breakfast... More

This pousada is beautifully decorated, yellow on the outside whilst the rooms are white with flashes of colour such as shimmering blue insets in the shower. The complementary toiletries from Ecco Brasil had a lovely scent and I looked forward to using them every day. Rooms are quiet. Air conditioning is very effective though the rooms stay cool enough without... More

Buzios is about all the diferent beaches.. so this Posada is very well located.. walking distance from the center (10min walk) 1 block from the beach (Praia dos Ossos) although I didn't love this beach, if you walk 5 min you get to another beach called Praia Azeda which is nicer. The Posada is nice.. tinny pool, good breakfast... only... More

100 yards from the sea this B&B is excellent. Comfortable rooms, quiet efficient a/c, superb breakfast. Combine this with an excellent and willing staff makes for a fantastic stay. The resort caters for Brazilians and Spanish speaking South Americans and as we appeared to be the only English speakers in the resort, this was no problem.

Reception staff were not very friendly. we were informed that we would be able to leave the hotel between 12 am and 3 am however the doors would be locked. We waited for 20 minutes to be able to get back in the hotel. Breakfast was good, selection of food was fresh and the variety was quite nice.

I consider the La Chimere one of the Best Value properties in Buzios considering Price and Location, walking distance to Rua das Pedras and all its bars, restaurants and shops and also walking distance to Azeda/Azedinha Beaches.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
La Chimere receives you with a very special architecture, fruit of a delicate equilibrium between an outside buziano style and a sophisticated, modern interior and with clear and broad spaces. In a very beautiful internal tropical courtyard, is located the swimming pool. A true one oasis because in being a matter of an architecture, the external noises don't arrive. The peace and tranquility reign in this courtyard where the swimming pool is transformed in the "beach after the beach". ... more   less
