Pousada Saint Germain
Ranked #198 of 368 Armacao dos Buzios B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This Pousada is in a fantastic location, quiet, but so close to everything, perfect. A short walk down the hill and you are wondering alongside the beach into the main town past Brigitte Bardot!! A short 10 min stroll will take you to some great beaches, just watch that tide coming in! Paul the owner is a great character, an American who will help you with anything and it's so useful having local knowledge. We really appreciated his help and he was so accommodating to us when our travel plans changed slightly and he even let my husband play his guitar. A really welcoming Pousada and I highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony, it would be worth paying a bit more for it.

This is the most amazing place to stay that I would just travel to Buzios just to go to Saint Germain! The beautiful patio with swimming pool is gorgeously decorated that makes the common area a great hang out spot! But what makes this place the best is the incredible Staff! They give better customer service than any 5 star hotel which is why I'd give it 7 stars! The rooms are super clean with comfortable beds and nice decor! It's located in rhe best area of Buzios that you can walk to the center in 5 minutes! The breakfast is delicious and the free wifi is a plus! Thank you Paul for all your effort to make my stay an amazing one! Elena from Los Angeles

Bathroom is ultra-tiny. Room is spartan. Location is great--backs on to the Rua Morro do Humaitá, which is where some of the best places to stay are located. Very close to main town (5-10 minutes walk inland) and nice beaches (5-10 minutes walk towards tip of peninsula). Hotel is cheap and feels it, but you don't go to Armação dos Búzios to stay in the hotel room.

Owner very nice and helpful.

I just spent almost two weeks at this small, family-operated hotel (pousada) at Buzios, Brazil. Compared to the next door expensive hotels and overall expensive almost everything, this small hotel provided very affordable price and great services. The owner is very friendly and tried to help me on every need. IN these two weeks, I felt I was at home. This place is highly recommended.

Had a fantastic time here. The owners were really helpful. Clean rooms reasonably priced. Not on main drag but close to great beach & town center.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room

Nice hotel with cozy rooms. Very helpful owner who gave us a lot of good advice on Buzios and surroundings. He arranged a transfer from Rio airport for us.
Big advantage is its location: 5 minute walk to restaurants, bars, clubs and 10 minute walk to the calm beach.

Room Tip: Good location, close to the center

Me and my wife really enjoyed our stay in the pousada this April. It is located perfectly in the calm and safe street very close to the center and the main beaches. Pousada offers nice and clean rooms and tasty breakfast. Special thanks to its owner, Paul, who was very helpful and warmly welcomed us in the pousada.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Pousada Saint Germain is a 12 room pousada located within a ten minute walk to Rua das Pedras and within twenty minutes walking to many of the finest beaches. While we are close to the center, there is an atmosphere of peace and tranquility where you can get away from it all while being close enough to enjoy the nightlife without having to worry about transportation back at the end of the night. We speak fluent Portuguese and English, as we are a Brasilian-American couple. We try to offer the best combination of location, service, value and price. ... more   less
