Onde block from bus terminal, and onde block from histórico center. I believe it is the best possible lication, sine places inside histórica center can be very noisy at night. You feel like in your own home. Breakfast is inside the at time you choose. Friendly service.

My boyfriend and I went to Paraty for about 4 days and booked this pousada online. We wanted to to be close to the city center and to the bus station and this place is both! We arrived much earlier than the check in time and they made their best to give us a room as soon as they could.... More

Stayed on the ground floor in the back which is not great. The window does not provide any view. The personnel does not speak any English so take care. On the positive side, the breakfast was plentiful. Location is good close to the centre.

Nicely decorated pousada with very clean rooms. They offer parking in their own yard, which was quite positive for us since we travelled by car. As already pointed out by other reviewers: Delicious Breakfast is served in your room at a time of your choosing. One thing to consider; Our room was in the first floor, facing another building.

Very well located. This lodge has only 9 rooms but they are comfortable, with wifi, air conditioning, TV, fridge, good bathroom. Breakfast served at the room at a scheduled time according to your preference. Good choice of fruits, pieces of cake, breads, coffee and milk. The only kind of issue that I had was that I requested twice for more... More

What less this place down was, there was NO tourist information available, not even a guide of how to find the Tourist Information office in town! Another problem was that no one spoke even broken English! If these could have been addressed, we would have rated the pousada higher. It is very clean and the wooden floors shine beautifully.

This place is so clean and comfortable. Within easy walking distance of the old town. Restaurants around the corner. Fantastic breakfast. Only downside -no hot water over the hand basin. Good value. Room is serviced daily. No English spoken here but they do understand Spanish.

Nice, and very spacious bedrooms, walking distance from historical centre and beach a bit further away. Very nice breakfast with fresh tropical fruit and fresh juices. Not everybody speaks/understands English, but that is not exceptional in Brasil.

Normally we can find some redeeming factors even if things aren't perfect but we were just so frustrated by the end of our stay, I'm just going to list the things that contributed to the low rating: 1. We requested an upper floor room for security, the owner said he "didn't see the request" which was clearly noted on the... More

What a dream! After a friendly welcome, we were shown our room 'o quarto amarelo' (the yellow room). The room was bright, had lots of light and was classically but tastefully decorated. It was also functional with a table, a wardrobe, a mini bar (with normally priced beverages) and a bed with a comfy mattress. Both the room and the... More
