Pousada Saint Germain

Reviewed 9 February 2014 via mobile

there can't be said anything about the friendly and helpful staff. the breakfast was all right.
our room was very dark and seemed to be in need of some renovation. the ac was so loud we had to turn it off to be able to sleep. we could have dealt with that but not for this price!

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a week in mid Jan/2014. We meet Paul, the owner, who is an ex-Pat, and he spent about thirty minutes with us going over a map of Buzios giving us ideas on how to spend our time, where to see the sea turtles, which beaches to hit, etc. In retrospect, this really saved us a lot of time as I found his opinions to be spot-on.
Though the Pousada is off the beaten path a couple of blocks, it is perfectly situated between the town and the beaches. I think the farthest we walked one way was 20 minutes, with most locations in the 5-10 minute range.
The site itself is very tropical, with lush foliage, banana trees, and beautiful flowers. It definitely feels like Brazil. Our room was comfortable, and there was breakfast offered (though I prefer to sleep in myself).
Paul definitely wants his guests to be happy, and having the owner interact with his guests was a unique experience for us. I couldn't even think of a suggestion for improvement.
For our last night in Buzios, Paul arranged our transportation to Rio, and even gave us a few places to try there. We made it to Bip Bip??? and had a great time there listening to the locals play samba.
Definitely the place to stay in Buzios, I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.

We spent 2 days at St Germain Pousada. The place is perfectly located closed to orlat Bardo. Very quiet and charming with a beautiful garden and swimming pool. The breakfast is very good with delicious home made cakes. The owner and his staff are so nice and helpful. A perfact place to stay at Buzios

good and clean rooms, good bed and hot shower, brilliant extensive breakfast and very helpful and kind people.
Not far away from the cozy streets with restaurants, shops and clubs. The beautiful beaches are nearby as well.

Great welcome, beautiful view on the hills from the rooms, 3 minutes walk from the center so it is really quiet. One funny thing about the breakfast, there is a new cake every day.
If you get a little time to chat with the owner, you'll know every single secret about buzios, the best beaches and things to do.
It has a great ratio quality/price, one of the best I've seen ! If you're searching for a cosy, pretty, cute, warm welcome place, this is the one you should get in.

We arrived in Buzios at the end of a glorious holiday in Brazil. It was a great place to complete our trip. Centrally located a short walk to the beach and all the bars and restuaraunts. Our room was clean and spacious with a balcony. What more could we ask for?!
Our hosts were welcoming and obviously keen to make our stay enjoyable. Paul was able to speak English and give us plenty of advice about all aspects of the area. Particularly about good reasonable places to eat. The breakfast was more than enough and the cakes delicious! Thank you for making our final days in Brazil so special.

Room Tip: There is such a lot of choice in Buzios. This pousada was so well located and certainly good value...

This pousada was recommended by friends who have stayed there before. Rooms were clean and breakfast delicious. It's a short walk to town and beaches and they have a pool and patio area on premises. The owner was very helpful in recommending which restaurants and beaches would suit us best and in helping us with bus schedules when we left. Overall we enjoyed our stay here very much!

Pousada Saint Germain is a 12 room pousada located within a ten minute walk to Rua das Pedras and within twenty minutes walking to many of the finest beaches. While we are close to the center, there is an atmosphere of peace and tranquility where you can get away from it all while being close enough to enjoy the nightlife without having to worry about transportation back at the end of the night. We speak fluent Portuguese and English, as we are a Brasilian-American couple. We try to offer the best combination of location, service, value and price. ... more   less
