Very comfortable accomodations, great bed, great shower! I stayed in a standard suite and it was perfect! No need for more if you are in 2! Delicious breakfast, very pleasant sfaff. Location is amazing, inside historical town, sorrounded by craft stores, touristic places (church, museums, galleries), and great restaurants and bars! You only need to get the car to go...

This Pousada is quaint, clean, peaceful and wonderfully located in the heart of the historic center just steps or "stones" from the best restaurants in town. Further, you're a five minute walk from the pier to jump on boats for tours. The most special thing about this Pousada is the staff who will lend you their ears, time, insights about...

Paraty is such a lovely place and Ouro is the perfect place to stay. From our arrival to departure the staff did everything they could to make our time as comfortable as possible. The bedrooms and bathrooms are excellent. Very clean and comfortable with everything you would expect of a hotel. Not necessarily the norm in parts of Brazil! The...

The place is in the historic part of town. Perfect for small walks around the place. From the moment we checked in the service was very good. Reception was easy to deal with nothing was a problem. Stayed across the pousada across the road in one of the superior rooms. Our room was on the second floor. Had very high...

Lovely Restored Colonial Inn in a fabulous town with upscale shops and restaurants. The pool area, bar and dining is very private and relaxing. If you do not appreciate old architecture this may not be the place for you but we were charmed by it. The front desk took care of our every need and found us a great private...

Pousada do Ouro is probably one of the best pousada’s you can book in Paraty. This beautiful place is visited by many celebraties (such as Mick Jagger) and is situated in the old centre. We learned that this used to be the house of a salesman because it has an upper floor overlooking the water. This way, the owner could...

We have visited Paraty several times and always stayed at other traditional colonial style pousadas. This time we tried Pousada Ouro and liked much better as compared to other famous pousadas on town. At the front desk they are very friendly and speak a very good english. They will all serve very well in the role of a concierge if...

The hotel is probably the best in historical Paraty. It has lovely communal rooms and a beautiful swimming pool in a tropical garden. The standard rooms are across the street, which is a nuisance as you have to cross each time you leave your key at reception and they open the door to the private street to your room. The...

We stayed in the hotel's only room with a view, and it was definitely worth the little bit extra it cost. It was up a few flights of stairs, but nothing too taxing - the hotel staff can bring your bags up and down for you if requested. The room was lovely, very spacious and attractive - it even had...

After researching for quite some time pousadas in Paraty I finally booked our room at Pousada do Ouro. Our main criteria was the location: we wanted to make sure we were inside the historical center of Paraty. Pousada do Ouro is only one block away from the city´s main square so you can walk there in less than a minute....
