This pousada is located in the Ossos section of Buzios--the area most like the fishing village it was back in the day. Our room and the common areas were spotlessly clean. Wifi worked well. Breakfast was a bit slanted toward carbs and cakes, but scrambled and fried eggs are available on request. Coffee, tea, infused water and snacks are available...

Nice, clean little hotel. Breakfast had a great selection of food to choose from. The staff on reception were very friendly and went out of their way to help me when my plug adapter wouldn't work. Location is great but not the quietest as there is an extremely active church across the road! A ten / fifteen minute walk gets...

Everything about the Pousada was nice. The people that worked there were very friendly, I got a home feeling at the Pousada, the breakfast was really nice and delicious.

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.

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

“Hard to say - they all looked nice from what I could see when they were being cleaned. Mine was upstairs (rather difficult stairs). It was large, very bright and airy - also airconditioned. It overlooked the street, but wasn't at all noisy.”
