We’ve visited Paraty three times in the last 10 years and have stayed at the Porto Imperial each time. We have enjoyed all 3 stays and the pousada continues to try to improve the facilities each time. It is located in the historic district in a historic structure, which I am sure, limits some of the infrastructure. But all things considered, it has been a great experience.
The standard rooms are somewhat small, but the upgraded room is good and worth a little extra. Yes, the rooms are somewhat noisy, but the perfect location more than makes up for it. The staff has been most helpful, knowledgeable, friendly, and anxious to please. Another plus in the location is that your transportation can drive to the corner of the pousada to let you out. Other pousadas in the historic district can require a walk with luggage because vehicles are not allowed past a certain point. I noticed someone complained about the breakfast hours. It was 7 am until 10 am when we stayed.
Paraty’s historic area is anything but handicap accessible, so I would strongly recommend you understand the terrain, if you are limited in mobility. You will be watching every step if you want to avoid falling.

The place is amazing and looks like an ascient farm. We have the perception of a time back trip. The food is excellent and the service as well. It is close of all interesting places in the city. I strongly recommend!

Pousada Porto Imperial is the most beautiful small hotel I have stayed at in a long time. The public spaces and the decoration are superb. The guest rooms are spotless and the beds are extremely comfortable. Breakfast is ample in the Brazilian way and the breakfast room is spacious. The reception staff - especially Charles - is polite, accommodating and professional, they will do whatever they can within their power to help. A gracious and charming experience in a truly historic town. Obrigado! However, I would recommend that you check that your stay does not coincide with one of the co-owners' birthdays. The partying went on much too late, and the music was way too loud.

Room Tip: Main floor toward the back, near the outside bar and pool which close at 10 pm.

This is a superb hotel in the central part of the old town of Paraty. It is a short walk (literall a minute or so) to the port and also to a number of the restaurants located in the cobbled Old Town.

The rooms are clean and spacious and the pool and bar area an excellent size and hang out. I would go as far as to say the pictures on the Pousada's website do not do them justice! In terms of value I would say the prices are excellent, but I was visiting from Britain at a time we were getting BRL 4.3 to GBP 1 which was a factor in this.

The staff are brilliant and helped us with numerous issues. Patrick and Charlie in particular were superb.

Would highly recommend.

Room Tip: I would suggest a suite - it is slightly more than the others but is worth paying for.

very good room, quite spacious, generous breakfast, well located, super friendly staff, the swimming pool looked on the smallish size but the whole pool area was very pleasant.
one downside might be the bathroom which could have used a little bit of a ...decoration touch let's say!
