A Real Charmer
The owners and staff of this charming inn are among the friendliest, most helpful hoteliers I have ever met.
The eleven (11) 'apartamentos' are nicely and individually decorated and very comfortable (though my room air conditioner was noisy and not all that efficient).
The hotel, which combines two 18th century manors, is part of the Roteiros de Charme group.
(The hotel occupies both the pink and adjoining white buildings in my photograph, with the entrace the third door to the right in the white structure.)
Unique Quality: A small pool graces the lovely garden in back.
The fine restaurant offers superb views down the hill and across to the Recife skyline. My first night's dinner — Filet de Peixe ao Molho de Manjericão com batata saute — cost all of R$19 (or US$6.50).
I did not try either the sauna or the wine cellar.
Directions: Heart of the old city, between the Oficina da Sabor and Goya restaurants.
Roteiros de Charme
Roteiros de Charme is a non-profit association of hotels located in historical towns, mountain villags, resort beaches and national parks away from large urban center, and in areas where enviromental protection is a priority. One of the hotels is also Pousada Amparo, an excellent choice to rexal in the flowered garden with the precious view of Recife.
Unique Quality: Everything!
