This place is a complete rip off and is awful. The rooms are the size of prison cells, the staff is rude and not helpful, the internet only works in the lobby and sucks. It's not a design hotel. It's a piece of garbage Pousada that shouldn't charge more than R$100 per night. We got food poisoning from the food.... More

The rooms are shocking and resemble prison cells rather than what is was expecting and viewed on the website considering I was ripped off and paid Us510/day. To avoid utter disappointment, please stay away. No English channels on TV, wifi is pathetic and kitchen staff are grumpy and grubby.

We keep coming back here always. The rooms are very comfortable and the pool is great to chill out. The location is great, since it is walking distance from Rua dad Pedras, but keep the noise and the crowd away! The breakfast by the pool is great and a sauna after a day at the beach is mandatory!

Pousada Design in Buzios is a short 10-15 min stroll to the centre of town.

This hotel has some advantages. Breakfast is good and it is located on a street with little traffic and noise. Cleaning is first class. So to the more negative aspects: Bathrooms are extremely tiny in the standard rooms. Do not get confused by the huge bathroom with modern tubs on the hotels website. That is De luxe rooms of which...
