  • Quite interesting to learn details of our colonial architecture and parts of our history, too bad you had some de-characterization with your occupation by a public agency.

  • Majestic Palace. Lives up to sumptuousness of Brazil Empire. It is opposite the imperial Museum. Beautiful architecture.

  • Nice place but bad. The room needs urgent restorations and reforms. History lost by degradation of the place.

  • Open every day for free and guided visitation, nice knowing a little bit about the own Petrópolis and the change of location of the city over time. The guide was attentive, but at times you could your own opinion after the explanation (let it).

Where to stay in Petropolis

Unfortunately, no matter how much you're willing to spend, your accommodations in Petropolis won't be quite as luxurious as Emperor Pedro's former palace. Nevertheless, you can choose from a range of delightful guesthouses and boutique hotels during your Petropolis vacation, many of which are housed in well-preserved colonial buildings and offer spacious gardens to enjoy. The city's old center, with close proximity to the palace and the striking cathedral, remains the most popular neighborhood among tourists. However, you can also find a range of places to stay in the southwestern neighborhood of Quitandinha, which contains a scenic lake of the same name.
