A small, welcoming and well appointed pousada nestled on one of the hillsides in Buzios. The staff are welcoming and very helpful. Rooms are a good size, light and airy with effective air-conditioning. The pousada is kept spotlessly clean and an ample breakfast of fresh fruit, breads (and eggs if you ask forthem) sets you up for the day. On... More

What a lovely poussada. In fact, there is a special feeling as soon as you enter the front door! Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Beautifully decorated public area; huge bedroom with sea or garden views; fabulously comfortable bed; lovely bathroom; excellent breakfast; and magnificent view from the rooms and pool terrace. No shampoo provided, but when we requested some it... More

We got a triple-bed bedroom on the 2nd floor for the weekend in Buzios. The hotel has a good location on the hills of Joao Fernandes beach which you can walk about 5-10 mins to the beach, however, you'll need a taxi to go to the central area. Breakfast is well-served and you have got a decent view of the... More

Weekend in Buzios. A brilliant idea, romantic, but not in the summertime. We were at the Pousada San Francisco last weekend. We chose a superior room. Beautiful view from the balcony. The view is the highlight of the inn. And maybe the only one. The suite, which looks clean, had a dirty hammock on the balcony. I like to use... More

In Buzios a really nice place to stay - a little bit outside of the towncenter - but the location on top of a hill offers a nice view. We had a rent-a-car so we could get around easily. Breakfast was fine - rooms simple but clean and nice. We can recommend the B&B

The "pousada San Francisco" (incorrectly named on this site as "A San Francisco de Buzios" was better than we imagined even though the pictures on their website showed a gorgeous view and quaint decor. After going up a literally San Francisco (California) style super steep road we parked in the 3 parking spots in front of the hotel. As soon... More
