We arrived at Insolito Hotel after leaving a disappointing hotel which had originally booked... To arrive at this place was like heaven, the vibe was super cool and chilled, the decor was hippie chic, and view was divine! We had a lovely deluxe room with balcony, great size and lovely bathroom with a balcony over looking their beach club. We...

We arrived to be pleasantly surprised by our welcome and the ambiance and superficial quirky look. We were shown to room 17 - down a level which smelled of toilet sanitation perfumed blocks to the extent we had to immediately open the doors and look at the view!!1 The view did not exist as it was covered by overgrown palms....

I had mixed feelings when we booked the Insolito but when I left I wished I had stayed longer. Firstly if you like a traditional hotel you will find this place rather quirky. No two rooms are the same so each has a style dictated by the owner however the one I stayed in called Fotographia had the most amazing...

-Staff hardly speaks and understands English. This is really a big thing. -Inefficient staff. Orders take a really long time since language and hospitality skills are really poor -Messy beach area. Used towels, plates and glasses everywhere. -Housekeeping needs improve cleaning of the rooms. Hair from previous guest were still in our shower. Stains on bed linen. Sandy floors. No...

Why this hotel does not rank higher in trip advisor puzzles me. Everywhere we went in Buzios did not have the stunning view or charm of this boutique hotel. Once owned by French Countess Emanuelle Meeus de Clermont Tonnerre the 24 room boutique hotel is full of nooks and crannies. The public areas contain stunning pieces of furniture and art....

Buzios is a paradise and Insolito Hotel is the perfect place to stay. Well located in Ferradura Beach, great view, friendly staff, very kind owners and wonderful amenities. Very clean and conformable rooms with a wonderful breakfast. The landscape was outstanding and the atmosphere couldn't be any better. I have no words to describe how satisfied and pleased my husband...

We stayed in this amazing hotel during our stay in Buzios and were blown away by the beauty. Once owned by French Countess Emanuelle Meeus de Clermont Tonnerre the 24 room boutique hotel is a well edited art gallery more than it is a hotel. The public areas contain stunning pieces and create small vignettes that add to the charm...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Authenticity and charm in an exclusive location, this is the mixture that makes Insolito Hotel unique. Placed on one of the most beautiful beaches in Buzios, Praia da Ferradura, the Insolito is like a leap over the sea. A subtle luxury, fruit of its comfort, modernity and charm, manifested in all five senses, compose the Insolito. Living the Insolito is more than just turning that most special dream into reality. Living the Insolito, truthfully, is to have never awakened from that dream. ... more   less
