I went to Pousada do Principe a month ago and it was lovely. It was a quick trip so I only stayed 1 night at the inn, but the service was great, the breakfast was really nice, the rooms are clean and it's really close to the historical downtown. I wish I could have spent more time there but it...

Great staff, great breakfast and even better pool in a perfect location for Paraty. Only con is that the rooms are tiny and its hard to maneuver even into the bathroom. But who stays in the room anyway. Highly recommended.

Stayed in this stunning and very charming boutique hotel on our group trip in October 2016. If you're travelling around Brazil, I would highly recommend a stop over in Paraty, as it's such a beautiful town. The staff at Pousada do Principe were really friendly and so helpful at all times (even helped me arrange an amazing spa treatment not...

The hotel was nice. When we got there, our rooms weren't ready (we were a group). We left our suitcases at the bar. The rooms were nice, a king size bed, a bathroom (with no door though), TV, air con, fan on ceiling. The problem was there was no mosquito net at the bathroom window and we got bitten to...

Following advice from TA reviews I booked a superior room , which gave us extra space. Very comfortable bed, good a/c, excellent shower. Breakfast standard/good, though the juice was not good, tasted like powdered. Did not eat in the restaurant at night, so can't comment. We arrived from Rio on the Costa Verde bus from Rio ( which is excellent),...

A great location being just outside the old town on what appears to be Main Street. The overall feeling was that when it was originally furnished it would have been absolutely fabulous with a pool to cool off in at the end of the day or even a swim if you're happy with a few strokes from end to end....

During our stay in Brazil, Pousada do Principe was our final destination and it was by far the best place we've visited. The swimming pool is wonderful and refreshing, the cleaning personnel even sorted our shoes and the personnel was very friendly. When we had problems with our travel agency, the manager personnally took care of it and told us...

Spent three nights here recently. The pousada is excellent in many respects. Comfortable rooms, excellent service, very good breakfast. However, the amount of mosquitos/biting insects near the pool was severe. The staff have thought of that and provided repellent and also a plug in device to use in your room. The wi-fi only works in the poolside area, not in...

Located close to the coach and bus station, this inn is on what looks like the high street in Paraty with cafes, shops and pharmacies close by. It is not in the historic town of Paraty but only two blocks away. Staff is friendly and helpful. Nice breakfast, inviting swimming pool do dive in after a day out and about...
