La Chimere
Ranked #2 of 105 Hotels in Armacao dos Buzios
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 October 2013

When it comes to choosing a place to stay when traveling, remember that the main principle is one: location, location, location.

La Chimere has the best location in Buzios, whether you are on business, leasure, vacations on your own or vacations with family.

Right by Praia Dos Ossos, a few yards from the main street in Buzios, Rua Das Pedras, close to the main restaurants, bars and coffee shops (remember that, no matter how early or late you start your day in Buzios, it always must start with your café da manhã), every day and night is different and exciting.

simply perfect! enjoy!

Kind regards, GEN

We stayed in La Chimere for 5 nights, and we liked it very much!
Our room, located on the first floor, was clean and had an adequate size. The bathroom was modern and big, but the water flow in the shower was poor.
The common area was cosy, with magazines, books, and a lot of place to sit down. There were also a room with three computers connected to internet. Besides that, there were free wifi in all the place. The staff was kind and attentive.
The breakfast was very good. It included delicious fruits, breads, cheese, ham, juices, puddings, yogurt, coffee and milk. Fried or scrambled eggs could also be ordered.
The location was great! It was close to "praia dos ossos" and walking distances from good restaurants, and very nice beaches such as "Azeda" and "Joao Fernandes".
If we went back to Buzios, we would choose La Chimere, again!

A wonderful Pousada, charming and very well decorated. The staff is very attentive. The location is perfect, right on a quiet little praca and within walking distance to the center of the city. The rooms are clean, discrete and well appointed. My only suggestion to raise this to a five star rating would be to invest in some down pillows. The king size bed was so comfortable, but those pillows!

This is my second stay and there have been many upgrades and changes to the property that make this already charming pousada even more wonderful. New bathrooms, a Jacuzzi pool, and WiFi through out the property including in the rooms. La Chimere is in a great location, easy access to many beautiful beaches and the centro district are all with in walking distance. The property is perfectly located as to provide a quiet atmosphere. The breakfast is very good with a varied choice of local foods and fruits as well as eggs cooked as you like and amazing Brazilian coffee available until late morning 11 am. No rush. The staff are attentive, speak multiple languages, and are very accommodating. Right around the corner is a little market well stocked and Sukao a great little eatery.

We booked a standard room at this lovely hotel. The room was good, view across quiet cobbled street to the hills behind. Brilliant breakfast AND it goes on until 11am! Friendly staff, free wifi throughout plus 3 computers to use. Décor is bright and airy with comfy chairs and sofas in various open plan rooms downstairs. The courtyard is a lovely peaceful space with water features and the small pool. Coffee was on tap all day and evening. Brilliant place to stay, just down the road along the seafront are good restaurants - can recommend Obacu which is 5 mins walk from hotel. Just 30 seconds down the road you come to the beach and a short walk along, up and over the headland are two lovely quiet beaches. We also walked to several other beaches which were noisier and full of restaurants and took the water taxi over to Tortuluga which is lovely.

Room Tip: All rooms have views to courtyard or across attractive cobbled streets. Standard rooms are what they...

Loved our stay in Buzios & would highly recommend to those wanting to escape the big cities of SA. La Chimere was the perfect location for our stay.. Affordable, comfortable & staff exceptionally pleasant & welcoming. Good breakfast & service. Wonderful location within walking distance to several nice beaches & the shopping district. Amazing!

Considering price and location, I have nothing to complain about Pousada La Chimere. Love the location, specially being walking distance to my favorite Buzios beaches (Azeda and Azedinha), think it could not be better. The rooms are confortable, clean, cozy and the staff if helpfull. I wish I could have stayed more days. 2 Nights were not enough!

Room Tip: I haven´t seen the superior rooms! I stayed in the STD room and it was ok.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
La Chimere receives you with a very special architecture, fruit of a delicate equilibrium between an outside buziano style and a sophisticated, modern interior and with clear and broad spaces. In a very beautiful internal tropical courtyard, is located the swimming pool. A true one oasis because in being a matter of an architecture, the external noises don't arrive. The peace and tranquility reign in this courtyard where the swimming pool is transformed in the "beach after the beach". ... more   less
