Azeda Boutique Hotel
Ranked #14 of 105 Hotels in Armacao dos Buzios
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 12, 2013

After a week in Rio to see the sights and the Carnival, Buzios was a complete contrast and a peaceful relief. The hotel is small but perfectly formed. The reception area is modern and inviting and the bedrooom was clean and spacious with a little balcony with a hammock! The staff were friendly and probably the only people who could speak a little English in the whole of Brazil. Food was good and varied and we had 2 evening meals in the hotel which were delicious. The owner is an Amercian man who we met at the beginning of our week and he offered to get his driver to take us to town to catch the coach back to Rio at the end of our stay. It was lovely but perhaps a bit over priced taking into account the setting, busy road outside, buggy hire etc. Would definitely recommend but wouldn't go back to Buzios as it doesn't have enough going on to want to return.

Stayed for two nights and enjoyed the peace of Buzios in winter. Enjoyed the Azeda although I am not sure I would book it again if visiting buzios. I would start by saying the room was nice, spacious and modern and very clean, and we had a reasonable view of the bay. Breakfast was good and also the staff were helpful. There are a few buts for me.....wifi didnt work in the room and only worked even reasonably when standing right beside a router. The pool area looks good but sadly the hotel is both on a busy junction and located next two a couple of beach buggy hire places, so it tends to be too noisy to be relaxing during the day. The hotel adverises its games room and gym but the facilities are not in great condition, for example the billiards/pool table has about 7 cues.....all of them broken. Nicely located for a couple of beaches and a short taxi ride to Buzios centre. Overall, a decent hotel but not quite a gem.

About your comments, we are working on it:
• The Wi-Fi connection in the rooms: We are really working to fix the antennas. We’ll change the Hotspot system.
• The news Cues: We already requested the purchase. The billiards kit will be complete soon.
• The street noise: We are so sorry. Rarely, it’s a inevitable problem of our neighborhood.
It was a pleasure!

Best regards

Looking to come to Buzios for a little luxury we booked ourselves into the Azeda Boutique hotel. When arriving and stepping through the doors we entered a Balinese-styled hotel which was straight out of a designer hotels book. Welcomed by friendly staff, and it was great that some spoke english, we were shown to our good sized rooms that were lovely. The hotel is very green and well maintained, our only drawback was that the pool was being cleaned (drained) and that was a major draw card to book from the photos. Needless to say, the staff and owner (who we met whilst at breakfast and had a great chat) apologised and told us that the hotel across the road was also theirs and we have complete access to that pool when needed. Melqhi, hotel manager, is someone you must meet and speak too, when there, as he is a well knowledgable and will point you in the right direction of beaches and restaurants. The hotel is situated near the best of the big and common beaches and is also a 15 minute pleasant walk to downtown were there is a bit more going on, in terms of bars and restaurants. Always smiles and good hospitality from all of the staff this hotel has a great breakfast range; fresh fruit, fresh juice (that changes daily - the papaya juice was off the hook!), eggs however you like them, cakes, etc. If you like a game off pool/bollards there is a good table downstairs for using and the hotel also gives your towels and chairs for the beach - free of charge. Wifi is only available around the reception area and not in the rooms which may be something for the future... But in saying this overall if we were to choose any hotel to stay in Buzios; we wouldn't hesitate to book into Azeda again.

A beautiful hotel with a perfect tropical, almost balinese vibe! Rooms are spacious and lovely with air-con, safe, and a good-sized bathroom. Wifi doesnt work in the rooms though, only around reception/breakfast area. Facilities are modern and in good condition. Only drawback is that the pool was under maintenance when we arrived which unfortunately we were not made aware of. Needless to say the manager offered us the use of their other hotel pool across the road. Plus, the beach is 5 mins down the road so really not a huge deal just a courtesy i guess. Location is pretty good, about a 15 minute walk to downtown where most bars / restaurants are and as I said, just up the road from the beautiful beach. There are other beautiful beaches though which you should hire a buggy to get to! The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating, quite a few speak good English and directed us to nice beaches and restaurants. Breakfast has a good selection of food - fruit, eggs, breads, cakes, juice etc. As we left we were given a bottle of Champagne by the pool (once it had been filled up ;)) which was extremely thoughtful and a lovely surprise. Overall a great stay at Azeda, would definitely recommend it and would stay there again.

I go to this "Pousada" since I was single with my girfriend and now my wife. Now I went there with 2 young boys (4-6 yo). The arranged a bigger room and even put together two other single beds. So the room was extremely comfortable. The service is awesome and the staff is always friendly. The swiming pool is an extra after the whole day spent at the beach

Room Tip: For Standard rooms choose the room number 5. Does not have a neighboor on the left and it is quite.

We checked into the Azeda Hotel the day before New Year's Eve, so Buzios was already humming with tourists. We worried that because of that, it would be tough to get answers for questions, but we were amazed with how attentive and courteous the staff was -- especially the management! Monica and Magda were wonderful. We can't wait to have another reason to go to Buzios so we can stay here again.

Excellent place and location and friendly staff, BUT torture to get suitable services and answers. On arrival I was told that on the third night I had to move to another (somewhat inferior) hotel of the same group because of water-related repairs.
Yet, the two days I was at the Azeda Boutique Hotel, I only got decently warm water once; I complained 4 times over 2 days; the maintenance guy would come every time and fiddle for a while; everyday I got a different explanation; tentatively helpful but with a go-round type of response; they argued my room was the only one with warm water trouble; but all other rooms were EMPTY and they only offered to move to another when I had already had enough with cold baths (temp was 16-21 degrees celcius outside). Another complaint goes to booking.com : at the time I was searching for rooms, booking.com was stating "only one room left" ... "only three rooms left"; and that was NOT true; the place was completely empty.
