Excellent place to stay in Paraty
Posted Jun 23, 2016 on Orbitz
This is a beautifully maintained historic property in the heart of old Paraty. It's in convenient walking distance of most that would be of interest to a visitor, especially including a number of good restaurants. The bright colors of the hotel make it a great place to wake up. The breakfast buffet was excellent, with lots of fresh fruit, breads, eggs made-to-order, and interesting food options. Wi-fi worked pretty well. Service from staff was excellent, and enough English was spoken that this non-Portuguese speaker had no trouble communicating essential things.
The only difficulty was finding the designated parking area when I arrived after dark. It's off of an alley several blocks from the hotel - a necessary setup because the hotel is in a pedestrian-only zone, but a little challenging when you first arrive in an unfamiliar city. You have to turn left at the post office, but I only found the post office by asking people I saw standing near where it was supposed to be - it's not well-marked, at least when closed.
All in all, though, my stay here was excellent, and I wish it could have been longer.
