The pousada was a nice comfortable stay. They have a dozen or so rooms in the main complex, which has a central courtyard and small pool. However we stayed in the annex (about 80m further down the street). The rooms in the annex are just as comfortable and clean, but since it is removed from the main pousada, the prices are also a bit reduced.
Upon making a reservation, the requested a 50% deposit, but otherwise everything was smooth and easy. The staff spoke only Portuguese, but were more than willing to help me even with my pathetic Portuguese abilities at the time. They helped give directions to nearby places, helped make reservations for the boats and restaurants, etc.
The rooms were generally quiet, but that may be because most of the guests were either families or not young revelers. It should be noted that the solid window shutters need to be closed at night due to the mosquitoes, and subsequently once those are closed, the rooms get quite warm without the A/C.
Rooms had A/C as well as breakfast included (until 10:30). Parking was also free in a protected garage. The main lobby has internet access.
Pousada Daya is a little pousada that is located in a small street not too far from the bus station.
You need to enter a little gate in to a courtyard and there is just a little wooden sign there, but once you are in there it´s a nice little family run place that has basic but clean rooms for little money.
I stayed there for a couple of nights in june 2010 and was quite happy there.
My room was basic, but it was clean and had a bathroom and i had my own key to the gate of the place so i could return any time i wanted wiothout having to wake up the family.
I stayed at pousada corsario in march 2009 and was real happy there.
The rooms were very fine with a hammock out on the balcony and the common areas were very cosy and there was a good pool area.
Breakfast was excellent and several if not all staff members spoke english.
First of all a very good and pleasant atmosphere that makes the place perfect for a couple who want a romantic holiday.
If you can't find anything better then go to Pousada Marcel . Its rooms are too small and there is nothing special about it. The tiny rooms have TV, minibar, aircondition or ceiling fan.
Breakfast is included served in a small uninspiring place.
The only good thing about it is that it is located at the end of the road and it's very quiet.
Cross the old bridge, then turn left on Rua Beira Rio then right on Rua Amazal Gurgel and left on Rua Pinto. If you cross the new bridge then turn right on Rua Berario, left on rua Am. Gurgel and left on Rua Oscar Pinto.

Undeniably the best asset is the wonderful view, which can be admired through the enormous windows and verandas. The swimming pool and the beautiful garden have their value, too. (If you are too lazy to walk to the beaches...) The hotel is decorated in a rustic style, it's very fresh and airy, and the rooms look extremely comfortable and spacious. All of them have airconditioning, TV and frigobar. The luxury rooms have a large balcony with hammock, table and chairs. Breakfast is included, served on the veranda and is very rich and nutritious with homemade bread and a great variety of fruit, cheese and ham, yogurt, biscuits, cakes and pure honey...( feel hungry?)
It is located on the hill, 200 meters uphill from the city beach on the road to the castle, just 500 meters from the historical center, which is about a 5 minute walk. And 500 meters from the extensive beach of Jabaquara. It is exactly in front of the gate to the Forte.

Excellent breakfast , large and healthy, with homemade jam, bread and sweets!

The rooms are pleasant, spacious and clean. They are equipped with TV, fridge, fan and a private veranda.

Generally in Paraty, if you are alone and hotels have no single room you are asked for the 70% of the price.

This was an affordable option right in the center of town. We just walked in, not having any reservations, and were able to stay 5 nights or so. It's small, clean, and breakfast of fruit and ham sandwiches and coffee or tea is included. On the balconies, there are hammocks to lie in, and views of the red tile rooftops around town. This is a quiet and safe place whose location is perfect for grabbing a bite to eat or shopping around town.
I arrived in Paraty in the late afternoon so the most important was to find a place to stay before getting dark. A nice pousada was recommended by my friend, but when I got there I found the place was locked and nobody answered :( I had to start my own investigation. After asking in several places around I came across Historic Centre Hostel. I immediatelly liked it and decided to stay there.
This hostel is located in the heart of the Centro Historico, next to the Casa da Cultura, only 100 metres from Paraty's central square Praca da Matriz. It is run by a very friendly English speaking native John and his son. They offer two types of accommodation:
- private ensuite rooms
- 4 person dorms
Delicious breakfast is included in the price and it is served in a yard. You find everything from fresh fruit and juice, coffee, tea, bread, cheese, ham, jam, cake, couscous... Guests are free to use sky TV and internet at any hour of the day or night. And if you have a question regarding numerous activities in Paraty, John is always at hand to give you some suggestions, show the photos and arrange the trip. He offers boat trip, jeep tours, trekking and bike & car hire.
I enjoyed staying in Historic Centre Hostel and would recommend it to anybody looking for a comfortalble acomodation on a low budget.
The Concept POUSADA is hard to explain in english, it is a sort of a cottage or a gguest house, it is a informal way of accomodation very common in many cool destinations in Brazil. And Paraty has a large number of POUSADAS, some of them can bring you the taste of being home, or simply the sensation of visiting old friends.
This is how I like to stay when I am in the village.
Paraty is a city, actually the last city in the southern of Rio State, but the old town is so tiny that makes us think we are in a small village. Indeed Paraty has this charming and formal way to treat the visitors!
POUSADA DO RAMIRO is very simple but decent...it has a very warming room equipped with nice and clean toilet and shower, the clothes are clean, and everything is perfect when you are there.
I always stay the because the owners are great friend of money, the very welcoming couple João and Geisa are always tehre to give you precious information about the region and making you feel that you are simply visiting your grandparents!;)
Rates are always very low, they charge you per person and you will experience how to be a local because they do not treat you as tourist, you will be simply part of the house!
IT IS INDEED A VERY CHEAP WAY OF ACCOMODATION IN PARATY!;)))))
First of all, a visit to Paraty is something you will always remember. I came there with my wife for the third time in 10 years this year, and I will come back ! we could even finish leaving there.
After a quite extended benchmark of the pousadas of the historic center, we now go straight to the Mercado de Pouso, the best quality price ratio on the market (and it is not cheap).
We have found in this lovely hotel all the services that can be expected for a 3 to 4 stars european equivalent, but more than everything a unique atmosphere, quite laid back and full of artists. The charm of the place can be found at every corner, in the garden, in the lobby and more than everywhere in the rooms with a view on the harbor.
- Best location, in front of Santa Rita and facing the sea
- very calm at night
- it feels more authentic than any other pousada in Paraty
We´ve stayed at this nice "pousada" at Praia do Jabaquara (Jabaquara Beach), one of the closest to the historical center, which can be reached walking in 15 minutes. But the Mount of the Fortress is right in the middle of the way and walking there late at night can be dangerous...
The place offers comfortable rooms (ours had a double bed and a single one) with hot showers and TV, good breakfast and the sympathy of the owner, Mr. Nelson Godoy - the artist!!!
Prices vary a lot depending on the season, but usually range from R$80,00 (US$38) to R$120,00 (US$57) for a room.
Very impressed by the quality of the rooms. Nice people (a lot of laughing !), very helping, great breakfast and globally a very nice atmosphere
Great view and atmosphere. You open your window in the morning and you see the birds diving to catch fish, you turn right you face the beautiful church of Santa Rita. I could live there !
- Friendly staff
- Cheapest place in town when compared to the pousados
- I quite like the common area with dining table and a view overlooking the river
- Musty smell in the room, I guess, due to Paraty being such a humid place
