The location is perfect if you are staying one night in São Luis before heading to Lençois, it gives you a good night sleep and you are in the heart of the old historical centre, where you can walk around the streets and check the "azulejos" and enjoy some night life. The hotel is inside a very old house and it gives it a lot of character. The hotel has a restaurant as part of it (a pizzaria) and their pizzas are quite good.
As the pousada is inside a very old house, there is no lift, so if you are staying in one of the room at the second floor there are quite a lot of stairs to climb and can be tiring for the elderly (it certainly was for me!). Staff at the reception are nice but we had problems with the breakfast staff that (even though the breakfast is supposed to end at 10am) started to taking things out of the table before 10am. The staff also did not want to do a tapioca (special local dish part of the local menu) when asked at 9:45, saying that orders ended at 9:30. Staff at the kitchen had an attitude that did not made you feel comfortable having breakfast there.
Style, breakfast, and services in general
A nice little hotel, very well located for visiting Sao Luis. The three-person room is tiny and is completely filled by the three breeds without any extra space for moving around or leaving luggage
The breakfast is very minimal but acceptable. The amount of mosquitoes in the room, the non-working a/c and the lack of sound isolation makes sleeping difficult.
great relaxing area In the city center (might not be the most exciting area of the city) Colonial building
Cold water in the shower water dropping from the cealing all day/night even after informing the reception We asked for an early breakfast (6:30) but was not possible
Wonderful athmosphere in a great city. perfect breakfast, wifi in the lounge (not in the rooms), lovely rooms located around a central court, very quiet, just lovely. We liked Sao Luis a lot, because it is beautiful and not yet touristical...
Position. Staff will help you organizing everything and solving all the problem(including language problems..nobody speaks english!). Rooms are clean. Pousada is a beautiful building. Well furnished.
Ask for in-facing rooms
The nice conglomerate of antique buildings beholds some surprises inside and serves as an ideal starting point to discover the city. The normal rooms do not have very much privacy since all windows go to the inside corridor. We complained about that and got an upgrade (thanks again for that).
I got an electrical shock on opening the shower. The place misses some care and was in kind of a continuing breakdown. The pousada is not a bit flexible on changing reservations - we wanted to cut our stay short and we had to pay the full amount of days. A very strange procedure happened on checking-in: getting my credit card data from booking.com, they charged me the whole rate for our stay some days before our arrival and wanted to pick up my signature afterwards. However, I authorized booking.com to do so, not the hotel and picking up my signature afterwards shows that very clearly. On discussing that with the hotel manager he explained me that "that happens in all hotels all over the world" - nope.
The historic building is very charming. It's close to a number of decent restaurants.
The area is full of shady-looking characters. Rooms on the lower floors can be noisy because of creaky floors above.
The staff was very helpful and the hotel was conveniently located in the historic district. The decor was cool. The breakfast and the food in the attached pizzeria was good.
My room wasn't what I expected it to be...the shower wasn't as clean as it could be and I had no hot water. The TV barely had a signal.
the whole hotel team is very, friendly, forthcoming and helpful.
The place would need to be renovated - at least painted new.
Staff are very friendly.
Right in the centre of the old town where the annual carnival takes place, this value for money place offers comfort and character in equal measure. While not all staff speak English, Google gets you by and they do their best to make your stay a memorable one (thanks Patrizia and Rony especially!) from changing your room to organising trips. If you can negotiate little quirks like the medieval room keys then you'll love it. The owner also has a great pizzeria attached to the Pousada so you don't have to go far for a good meal if you're tired from a day of sightseeing and dancing. Will go again. Voce sempre meu amigos!
Arriving for the Bumba Meu Boi festival I discovered that I literally couldn't get any closer to the action if I tried - all I had to do was open one of the 3 enormous sash windows in my room and look down on the whirling matrons below ! The hotel is a maze of corridors and stairs leading to (if my room is anything to go by) large airy rooms, decorated in a quirky individual colonial style, leaving you feeling like you've just walked into a novel by Gabriel Marcia Marquez.
Its definitely shabby chic, more fading glory than in its first flush of grandeur- but the ambience of the place convinces you to turn a blind eye to some of its faults.
Great location. Beautiful old building. Restored in a tasteful way. Convenient pizza restaurant next door.
The lock on my room (No 30) was very troublesome. The sliding door was difficult to close and I had to lift it to get the lock to catch. Although it is convenient having a pizza place below it also is very noisy if you are hoping for an early night. Also, the WiFi only worked by the reception, not in my room
Location was excellent, walking distance to sights. Big rooms and Pizza shop next door.
Spaciousness Light Position for historic centre was perfect
Some Staff not vey helpful.
The hotel deco is charming
But quite outdated
Only portugiese language. Difficult to travel when english or spanish is not spoken. This is generally an issue while travelling in Brasil.
Well located in the heart of the city center. Beautiful indoor patio and breakfast area with lovely furnishing.
Staff weren't overly nice, they did their job but a smile would have been nice. Our room was a bit dark but I think there are nicer rooms.
The whole place looks like a museum
My bed and pillows smell like accumulation of sweat over a long period of time, the first room I checked-in has a whole on the floor which I can see thru to the floor below. I requested to change to another room but there were huge gaps on those wood panels on the walls in the 2nd room and the pillows and mattress smelled as bad as the first room. Shower wooden panel was filled with fungus and has not been cleaned. Thank God I only stayed one night.
Actually, we stayed here late night and left early morning so that I don't remember about this facility so much. But I just remember that it was a beautiful historical facility made me comfortable.
The Pousada is very cosy and romantic! The location is wonderful! Staff is friendly and helpfull!
Our flight was at 00:50 we asked what it would cost to stay in the room.a.bit longer. It costs a full extra night although it was on a wednesday and there were hardly any guests! So we walked through the town and stayed in restaurants the whole day.
Very nice and cozy place. They have restored 3 buildings into a Hotel. It is located downtown in the middle of the places to visit and the show areas. Good breakfast. It has a pizza place attached to it. ------------------ Lugar lega e confortável. Consiste de 3 edifícios antigos que foram restaura e convertidos num hotel. Fica no centro, perto dos locais de shows. Bom desjejum e tem uma pizzria a noite.
When I arrived they took me to a room that had no windows on the first floor. When I made the reservations I asked for a room in front of the building with a view of the street. They said that making reservations through booking.com did not offer this type of room. I was forced to pay much more for the room that I thought that I had already reserved through booking.com.
i did not like that I had to pay extra for the room that i thougt I had already reserved
