  • For anyone who is interested in a little more history, architecture and money this is the place! A mistake to think that fairy tales are stories. Here you will understand the evolution of money in Brazil: from production of gold ingots, coins until the ballots we know today. Coins of virtually all periods. The garden houses a former slave quarters with objects of the time. Impresses as the slaves lived and were treated. The House itself is worth a visit. There you will find in the upper part a few books written by conspirators and observes from afar a house where secret meetings occurred. Ah, the visit is free!

  • Some interesting historic exhibits and currency history. There is very little detail in English only the odd this, which made it feel a little random. It’s free to enter.  more »

  • Excelent breakfast, very clean, the staff are very nice and pleasant. I loved the place, confortable, good room and bath, near everything, perfect for me and my girlfriend!
  • Lovely location, a bit tricky to get into the car park by car. The view was great from our 3rd floor room, and the staff did their best to accommodate us, even though I am at a disadvantage and do not speak Portuguese! Luckily my girlfriend does. The room was well presented and the bathroom nice, with basic soap and towels, an empty fridge and a small TV. For what we payed it is more than enough, and the bed is very comfortable.
  • This place has stunning views very clean and great location to the city
  • It's a comfortable place, with nice bed, and a good breakfast. Very well located!
