The house is very charming and well located, in the historic center. There are only four rooms, making it a boutique hotel. The owners are really nice people and breakfast is very very good and abundant. The thing is that it's really noisy. One of the rooms is right above the kitchen, so at 6am as the suppliers came with...

I am not sure why this pousada has such good ratings! The house is really beautiful indeed but thats about it . -We had a triple room with a supposed garden view. Its in fact with a roof view and the huge kitchen's hood. -The bedroom is located right above the pousada's professionnal kitchen and you basically feel like you...

This hotel is located right in the middle of the historic center. It is an old building, very charming with high ceilings, stone walls and wood floor. On the street level there is a garden side with live music every night and a bar and the restaurant on the other side. The rooms are quite spacious with nice big windows....

We chose this place based on the many good comments but must say was not at all impressed. The location is nice and the building from the outside too but it really needs some paint and refurbishing on the inside. Room size was adequate but was over the kitchen so in the evening you get the noise of the extractor...

Bartholomeu is more famous as the restaurant in Paraty, but they have about 4 rooms upstairs operating as a b&b, almost as a side business. Nevertheless they do so with care. Comfortable rooms, good ac, clean, many cable stations Nice small staff. Guests benefit from the cooking right downstairs, huge breakfast and the very well set restaurant, which has gourmet...

We loved the room and the location at the hotel. It is in the historic district in Paraty. We stayed for 6 nights right around New Years. Being located near the center of everything has it's advantages. The hotel also has a restaurant and it was one of the better ones in the area. We ate at the hotel every...

Located in the centre of this picturesque town, this beautiful old place is conveniently located but can be noisy, in particular when there is a festival, which may end as late as 2AM. Otherwise, there is always a bit of chitchat ongoing in the patio, even in the late evening. We stayed here for two nights, and enjoyed the atmosphere...

We only stayed one night in this charming Pousada but absolutely loved it. The service was excellent, the Pousada is ideally located in the center of the historic town and the hotel itself has a very welcoming and homey feeling. Some reviewers complained about the noise from the restaurant but it was very light and doesn't go on until late...

A traditional colonial style house, Pousada Bartholomeu is a pleasant place to stay with just five rooms. We booked three of them for our group. Rooms are tidy, simple, pleasant and nice. Front rooms have a balcony to the street, the other rooms go to the back garden. Beds are comfortable, bathrooms are simple but in order. Breakfast is excellent,...
