This renovated 1875 building near Petropolis' historical centre offers a great experience by providing very spacious rooms and excellent service with its very pollite staff.
The restaurant is excellent. Breakfast is very satisfactory with a good variety of items and possibility of ordering anything else in case you feel like there is something missing. For lunch or dinner, food is always tasty and its presentation is superb. It is definitely worth having at least a meal there.
Only negative comment is that hotel is a bit pricey even for what they offer.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the street side. They may be noisy during the night.

The hotel is charming. Located in the historical center, you can walk to Imperial Museum, Casa de Santos Dumont, flower watch and Crystal Palace. It is also close to local federal justice building. The restaurant is excellent for lunch and dinner. Breakfast is good but could have more options. The room is good and besides being an old house, it is renovated. It only should have more air circulation.
This hotel can make you feel the city and it's history. I highly recommend it.

We decided to spend our last night in Brasil in Petropolis. We had been in Rio for 5 days before heading up to Ouro Preto for 5 more days. We thought that we could easily cruise from Petropolis to the Rio airport, in our rental car, for an evening international departure. This was a good plan. The only problem was that the whole city was booked, due to the Corpus Christi holiday. We placed a phone call to the Solar do Imperio, our top choice. Management said they were "full" but that they would see what they could do. WELL, THEY DID VERY VERY WELL. This is a very professional operation. They arranged for a "spare room" to be set up for us. It turned out that this "spare room" was highly satisfactory: spacious, located in the adjacent house to the main hotel, private entrance, quiet, all services available. The indoor swimming pool was great. The breakfast dining room is light and bright, with lots of menu choices and charming wall paintings depicting various animals as menu participants. The main structure is really amazing, charmingly restored and original. The english-speaking staff was excellent-- we can't say enough about their commitment to a positive experience. We are SO glad we stayed here. It was a very positive reflection on Petropolis itself-- you are staying in one of the mansions of the uber class itself--along with those in the know.

Excellente hotel with a very kind staff. Excellent location. Almost of the tourist attractions are near the hotel and you will not need a car while you are in downtown. There is a supermarket and fastfood near too.

Petropolis is well worth a day trip; lovely area around Imperial Museu.
NOTE: Don't go on a Monday; most everything is closed. The hotel's breakfast we excellent and the staff is there to please.
For a cold beer with the locals, go the the beer gardern just out the west side of the hotel...you don't want a room on the street side..lots of street noise.
We liked Luigis Italian restaurant just a block from the hotel.
We drove from the airport to the area with no issues..the hotel is a little hard to find so get a good map as soon as you see a tourist info office.
All the attractions are well marked in English.
Zero tourist shopping. One full day is enough to see everything.
