The staff is friendly and helpful, but I noticed them that there where musquitos under the table, during breakfast. I got bitten and 4 days later I got sick: Chikungunya. Recoveringtime about 1 year! They didn't care about this mosquitos - so watch out when you are eating in morningtime!

I agree with other reviewers: The building is nice, with some pretty common areas to sit in, but the rooms are VERY basic (we couldn't' even keep the sheets on our bed - they didn't fit properly), and our shower had no hot water (they let us use another room, which was nice but inconvenient). Breakfast was okay. The beds...

We arrived on Sunday evening from Manaus and we hoped to be welcomed by the warm atmosphere of a nice pousada. Nothing of that. The receptionist was watching a football match on tv and seemed to be annoyed by our presence, the room was too small and not cozy at all. We asked for a change and luckyly they gave...

I have booked this place based on the ratings here on trip advisor. After staying 4 nights in this place I am quite disappointed with this place. Either it has been overrated or there was a decline in quality recently. The mattress of my bed was worn out and way too soft. After half a night my back hurt and...

As all the guides say, a really clean place. Authentic colonial flavor that honors their name. Very nice staff! Quite good breakfast. And location is perfect, inside the ancient "Centro Histórico". Price is also very correct.

The Old Town (Centro Histôrico) of Sao Luis is much more abandoned than I would have liked it to be, with lots of buildings remaining in ruins and many more without residents. The same kind of fate could have fallen upon any of the buildings in the area, so the simple fact that Pousada Colonial is so well kept and...

The inn is located at Sao Luis historical downtown, although pretty run down, many buildings are being restored at the moment. The location is good, staff friendly, and ok breakfast. Clean and spacious room at a nice kept building. I would recommend it, though a bit pricey I would say.

Hotel Pousada Colonial is a beautiful old building centrally located in the historic district. Rooms have A/C, fridge, free wifi. One day is enough for São Luis.

I always wanted to go to São Luis and Lençóis Maranhenses, so I decided to stay at this hotel because it was located at the historical center. When we arrived, I was really frustrated to discover how abandoned the historical center were. The receptionist warned us to avoid walk around it since it was Sunday and it could be dangerous....

This pousada is so popular that they don't even ask for a deposit to book the room. It was enough to send an e-mail and the room was booked. I loved the colonial style of the building and its interiors. The room was quite big, the equipment basic, but all clean and comfortable. Nice view from the window. Breakfast OK....

“High ceilings make long stairs. But the street level does not have nice rooms.”
martinribe, Feb 4, 2013 | Read review
“Many of the rooms only have windows facing the patio, so it's a privilege to stay in the rooms facing the street. Ideal for taking postcard-like pictures of the cobblestone street.”
