This is not a standard and anonymous business hotel. It's an airy, colonial Portuguese building, with a swimming pool in a central courtyard, visited by humming birds and other exotic birds.
The rooms are a reasonable size, even with a huge bed in them. The free WiFi worked consistently, if not at lightning speed. Breakfast was good, and the service friendly and personal.
The location is great. It's five minutes amble from the historic old town, with its (?18th century, ?older) Portuguese style architecture, smart restaurants, bars, chichi boutiques, and the not-to-be-missed puppet theatre. Around Poussada do Principe there are some excellent shops. The electrical sockets in Brazil are continental Europe ones, but we'd brought US adaptors. We'd failed to find a simple USB adaptor to charge the phones in Rio De Janeiro, but found one in minutes here. The shops and restaurants here are much cheaper than in the old town, and just as good for people watching. The demonstration that passed us on Friday evening was good natured and tuneful.
We loved Paraty, and didn't see anywhere that we'd have preferred to stay than in Poussada do Principe.
We loved it, and would love to visit again.
