This pousada is beautifully decorated, yellow on the outside whilst the rooms are white with flashes of colour such as shimmering blue insets in the shower. The complementary toiletries from Ecco Brasil had a lovely scent and I looked forward to using them every day. Rooms are quiet. Air conditioning is very effective though the rooms stay cool enough without...

Pleasant hotel which is comfortable and has a great breakfast !! The staff are excellent and talk English which is a bonus! It is less than 100m from one of the nicer beaches in Buzios and it is a lovely 15 minute stroll along the waterfront to town. Quite a few restaurants very nearby Very comfortable and clean bedrooms and...

Buzios is about all the diferent beaches.. so this Posada is very well located.. walking distance from the center (10min walk) 1 block from the beach (Praia dos Ossos) although I didn't love this beach, if you walk 5 min you get to another beach called Praia Azeda which is nicer. The Posada is nice.. tinny pool, good breakfast... only...

La Chimere came at the end of a long tour of Peru Bolivia Argentina ending in Rio Brazil.We opted to have add on days in Buzios a 4 hr coach ride from Rio. We did not know what to expect and after 9 flights wondered if we had done the right thing leaving early at 7 am on a coach...

100 yards from the sea this B&B is excellent. Comfortable rooms, quiet efficient a/c, superb breakfast. Combine this with an excellent and willing staff makes for a fantastic stay. The resort caters for Brazilians and Spanish speaking South Americans and as we appeared to be the only English speakers in the resort, this was no problem.

Reception staff were not very friendly. we were informed that we would be able to leave the hotel between 12 am and 3 am however the doors would be locked. We waited for 20 minutes to be able to get back in the hotel. Breakfast was good, selection of food was fresh and the variety was quite nice.

I consider the La Chimere one of the Best Value properties in Buzios considering Price and Location, walking distance to Rua das Pedras and all its bars, restaurants and shops and also walking distance to Azeda/Azedinha Beaches.

I really enjoyed my stay at this pousada. My room with 3 single beds was spacious, clean and had everything I needed. The bathroom was huge which always is a nice surprise. It´s not so close to Rua das Pedras (10-15 min walk) but it's close to most beaches like Azeda/Azedinha. You won't need a car at all. Just walk...

This is a great little pousada. it's right on the road, almost on Amacao beach. The rooms are so pretty ans quirky and impeccably clean. There are lots of peaceful little alcoves where you can sit and read, or chat and admire the ornaments. There is a small pool, which always seemed to be empty. Nice for a quick dip,...

My family and I have been fortunate to stay at 5-star hotels and resorts worldwide. There are some destinations that just don't have the popular chain hotels and you need to make do with a local boutique. First, we love Buzios! It's got a certain vibe a la a Mediterranean beach village, but low key. Few Americans make us feel...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
La Chimere receives you with a very special architecture, fruit of a delicate equilibrium between an outside buziano style and a sophisticated, modern interior and with clear and broad spaces. In a very beautiful internal tropical courtyard, is located the swimming pool. A true one oasis because in being a matter of an architecture, the external noises don't arrive. The peace and tranquility reign in this courtyard where the swimming pool is transformed in the "beach after the beach". ... more   less
