This welcoming, centrally located pousada offers terrific service and a great location close to the main square in Paraty's historic center. A renovated colonial building, the guesthouse will appeal to history lovers, and the film posters and framed letters from Hollywood stars such as Rita Hayworth will enthrall movie buffs. Luxurious by local standards, rooms are tastefully decorated, and some have terraces overlooking cobblestone streets. There's an expansive outdoor area and bar. The hotel restaurant, Pippo, serves excellent Italian food, including fish caught by chef Pippo himself.
