If all you want in a B &B is comfort and cleanliness then you can't go past Contos. Its very affordable, well located and friendly staff, although English is bit of a problem. Breakfast is about average but adequate, overall a good choice for the price.

A very cosy place to stay off the main roads, but close to everything in the historical town. Beds are comfortable, the rooms clean and the breakfast simple but plentiful. Julia is a wonderful host and thoughtfully had a hot cuppa waiting for us on our return to the hotel after a torrential downpour-would definitely recommend.

We stayed there for two nights and mainly picked Pousada dos Contos based on the location, price and some good reviews. It is located in the center of Paraty but off the main road and just outside the "historical" part of town, so it is a bit more quite but still very close to everything. The room was very clean...

This place has almost everything we looked for. It is convieniently located in the center of Paraty, yet it is quiet. Furthermore, the service is great and it has very good beds! Just a good place, no frills.

Very clean, we stayed 2 nights, everything was just fine. Julia and staff were helpful explaining things about Party and with booking tours. Wish we had more time to sty longer. Bob C.

I stayed here for 5 nights in February 2012. Room was simple, clean and quite comfortable which was fortunate as I had 3 days of terrible weather while in Paraty and there's not a lot to do there in the rain. Some of my plans got canceled on me and Julia, the owner who speaks Portuguese, German and English, was... More

Paraty is one of the most charming places in Brazil and the region around it is, quite literally, a tropical paradise. Pousada Dos Contos offers a great alternative to those travelling on a budget - the region is generally quite upmarket. The rooms are comfortable, clean and the location near the historic centre is very handy. It also offers parking... More
