“Excellent stay at this charming pousada!”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

Excellent location, very peaceful and with antique furniture. Beautiful and relaxing garden and delicious breakfasts!!! I would't have had to leave......

Room Tip: better inside and not looking the main square because it could be a little noisy.

This is a great pousada located on the main square in the (traffic-free) old quarter of Paraty.

The property is tastefully decorated with interesting antiques, in keeping with the town's colonial architecture. There is a pretty courtyard garden and small pool. Service is informal and friendly.

Our room (number 20) was large, sleeping up to 4 people. Beds are antiques and slightly short, but matresses are good. Excellent shower.

The pousada has a private covered car park 5 minutes walk from the hotel, as there is no vehicle access to the property.

One of the few family friendly pousadas in the centre of Paraty (many don't accept children under 14 years).

This property fell short of an "Excellent" rating due to the following:

- Nondescript toiletries in the bathroom
- Margarine, not butter, at breakfast
- Processed jams and jellies at breakfast (why not have some local homemade jams?)
- Tiny box set TV in rooms - (either install a decent television or get rid of these completely).

Fantastic decor + atmosphere; Friendly, professional service, Great breakfast, Reliable wifi; We did have staff for English translation and they even arranged a great schooner tour for us directly--One of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed--Ideally located, close to shops and galleries and restaurants; Paraty is a delight!

Room Tip: To sleep in, ask for a room that will not have street noise in the morning

This pousada is in the very centre of Paraty on the main square - ideal for restaurants and for wandering around this charming old town. The Pousada and its garden are beautiful and the staff charmingly helpful but do not speak English.
However we stayed over a holiday weekend and there was very noisy music in the square after the church service finished until the small hours on both Saturday and Sunday night. This might bother some visitors. We would also warn visitors with impaired mobility that Paraty roads and made of large irregular stones which can make walking around a little difficult and definitely slow - part of the charm.
This pousada was recommended by Imagine Latin America and they also recommended and booked Paraty Tours' excellent 5 hour schooner trip around the islands off Paraty in very calm waters, excellent staff on the boat and good food as well.

Room Tip: We had a deluxe room - old furniture but immaculately polished and cleaned - including the tile floo...

We stayed there in Jan 2012. The place is right in the middle of Paraty historical center...you just need to walk even to go to the boat (schooner) trips. The place is very well mantained with lots of old furniture and objects. It is like going back to 1850. The bathroom is big enough for two. And the suite had two rooms being one for the couple and another one with two single beds for kids. The only thing is that the bed is a queen size, not king. But comfortable.

I steongle recommend and will come back for sure.

Everything about this hotel was nice!
The staff is very friendly and helpful.
The hotel is well maintained and its design makes it a special place.
The rooms are large, well decorated and quite pleasant.
The breakfast was divine: fresh juice, homemade cake, bread ...

It is indeed a special place!

I have stayed here in May 2011 and we were the only guests in the pousada. The place is one of the most lovely place I have ever been - full of antiques, beautifully maintained, very attentive staff with great level of service. Rooms have no excessive facilities, but they are clean and silent (only beds not very comfortable). The garden and salons are peaceful and great place to relax. Location is perfect as well in the old town.

I would definitely stay here again.
