Pousada Alto Astral
Ranked #8 of 27 Olinda B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 31, 2011

This is a great place to stay (though it's expensive) We booked as there were very few places online though when we got to Olinda, there are lots of pousadas available. So maybe just turn up and walk the streets (tiny cute colonial town). Having said that, the pousada is fab, really colourful, full of prints, pictures, spiral staircases, a pool and hammocks outdoors. Lovely breakfast! Only problem is there's noise until about 5am with the samba bars and then there's a music school two doors down adn the sax and whistle classes starts at 8am. Not great if you're hoping to sleep

We stayed at Alto Astral at carnaval time this year. The pousada is beautifully decorated - arty, charming and rustic with a smashing garden at the back for chilling by the pool and lounging in a hammock. It is located centrally in Olinda with a couple of friendly local bars just along the road. There's a table out front - a good place to sit and meet people, other guests and watch the world go by. We had a great room ... the one at the top with a wall of windows that opened out onto the garden and a view to the sea in the distance. The breakfast was extensive - served up in the kitchen on a big wooden table laden with all sorts of fruits and great things to eat. Thank you Patricia and friends for looking after us and a fantastic stay in Olinda.

Breakfast offered a good choice of dishes but the whole impression left by this hotel was rather poor. The room was basic but with a nice view looking out over the pool, there wasn't any soap, the lamp didn't work and the staff wasn't very helpful. Generally, this hotel could do with an overhaul.

If you want travel, you have to go to this hostel. The rooms are so clean, they have one brazilian breakefast fantastic, without sound and mess, If you want to take a rest, you have to go for there. And it's in the best place in the town. Around there, have so many great bars and restaurants, with the best music. It's a very cutural city. I will come back, for sure.

Hotel has successful location in the central part of the town. It looks good outside. There is good decorated reception.
Spiral staircase leads to the room. There is a hammock opposite the room. Not bed view. But the room is not so good. There is bad, aircondition, wardrobe, bathroom… but all are old. The bathroom was without a door. A bed’s mattress smelt awful – it was impossible to sleep
There is usual Brazilian breakfast. We saw a small swimming pool, but it does not involve to swim there.
