10/10 Exceptional

A very charming property managed by some of the nicest people you will ever meet, everything in there is tasteful and breathing of history, the smooth jazz playing at the reception adds a touch of nostalgia, quite adorable.

Real atmosphere in the colonial town .
That's a nice place to feel the colonial atmosphere of the town. The towels and sheets are not really good quality, but it's good enough. The matress is great. The breakfast is colonial, and it is not really vegan friendly, but there are few options to feel ok. The breakfast table is a sharing table, so it is not really a great thing depending on the "company". It is ok for the value. But, not excellent.

Old Colonial Building with lots of charm
Great historical hotel in the centre of old Paraty. It's a delightful old building with period furniture and lots of charm. Staff very friendly. Breakfast included. The nearest parking or access by car/ taxi is a block away and dragging a suitcase across the large cobblestones is not easy. The bathroom is not modern and the Aircon and TV have not been updated for years but I'd rather stay here than in a bland chain hotel.

This is a great pousada/hotel. The place is very central and close to really good shops, bars and restaurants. You are basically in the heart of everything. Except at night, it is very quiet. I mean really quiet [Saturday night the whole town is subjected to club noise from the local youth hostel...so bring your earplugs..but except for this...tranquilo!]. The building is the place everyone wants to be photographed in front of and inside it is beautifully and respectfully decorated. This place is a piece of history. Even though the 'Classic Suite' has some issues [bathroom/noisy air conditioning] you will be glad you stayed in this amazing room. It is like stepping back in time. They offer a standard breakfast and you have lovely, quiet, chilled out staff around to help you out. This place is worth the money and worth staying at. Enjoy!

8/10 Very good

It's a real experience to bit in a old colonial house in the centre of Paraty. It has that magic feel of transporting you back to a distant past. The main drawback is the bathroom: very small, not very comfortable and functional, not easy to get hot water, loo blocks easily... Breakfast is nothing special. The owners/managers are very friendly and helpful. As with any place in central Paraty, not recommended if you have heavy suitcases (you cannot roll them on the stone pavements)

Lovely stay
I stayed two nights. The staff was very friendly and kind. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean and cheerful. I liked the breakfast and historical interior decorating of the common spaces. No cars are allowed in the historical center so you will have to carry your luggage about 2 short blocks.

2/10 Poor

Wrong description on hotels.com. Horrible
At first, the poussada is under renovation. All what is advertised on hotel.com is not right. The garden is under work, no access to pool. The kitchen is under work, no breakfast. The room os a disaster. No window that closes, no AC / Heating that works.On top, when we checked in, we could not stay at the hotel, and they relocated us into a lower standard poussada that was so bad. This hotel must be avoided and shall be removed from the platforms. I will file a claim as this is fully unacceptable. Do not go there
