We stayed there twice, to and from Lençois Maranhenses. First of all, the hostel is in a nice location, just a few meters from the main square of the old town. The rooms are rather spacious and each laid out differently. The first time we got one with a view into the inner courtyard, the second time one with a... More

Stayed here just for 1 night to get a flight to Rio de Janeiro. Lay out and decoration of the pousada are interesting. Rooms are spacious and have A/C. Empty mini bar. But... unless you really need to be in this area, I would rather not stay in the historical center of São Luis at all. Brasil has beautiful cities,... More

The location is great if you are planning to visit the historical center. Other than that, this hotel is just awful: broken air conditioning, no windows in most of the rooms, doors don't close properly, smelly bathroom, stained bed sheets, bed bugs, ton of mosquito, broken TV, empty mini bar, disgusting breakfast...and when you ask the front desk to address...

If you want to experiment how favelas look like, then it's a perfect stay! Dirty covers, cockroaches in the shower, disgusting breakfast and real noisy place if your room is on the street side. Not to forget the reception service which is mabe optional.

The location, right next to the city's main square and in the heart of the old town, is the best thing. Price is a little expensive but the hotel is very nice, quite colonial indeed. The breakfast was very good! Many things to choose among When it comes to the rooms try to take one away from the main streets... More

To be honest, I really liked this Pousada; however, looking back, I think it you have to be in Sao Luis to appreciate it. The whole histoci part of town is completly not well kept, meaning: fallinig apart. So when you go into this pousada, to me, it felt like a paradise. The building is beautiful, the social areas are... More

It is always a delight and pleasure to write a review of a hotel that exceeded expectations.This pousada is a combination of three old buildings in the heart of the historic centre.

“Go to a near by hotel, Grand Sao Luis Hotel, much better than this one. You may have to pay a little bit more.”
  • I doubt this shower screen has ever been cleaned, meldew stains and soap scum
  • to my surprise, the seat came off when I stood up from the toilet seat
  • Gaps on my wall, to the outside where the trees are.
  • This is the first room I checked in, as you can see there is a hole on the floor.
