The 29-room Hotel Ritta Höppner is an upper-middle-range, family-owned property in Gramado, located around the corner from the famed Mini Mundo (Small World), and guests receive free admission. This family-friendly property has a large outdoor pool, kiddy pool, and on-site kids' club complete with outdoor playground. Couples are catered for as well, with separate chalets that offer private pools. All rooms have homey decor and amenities such as flat-screen TVs, minibars, and climate control; some have extras like whirlpool tubs, kitchenettes, and balconies. This Old World Bavarian hotel features a lovely restaurant, a free daily breakfast buffet served in a pretty conservatory, and afternoon tea as well as room service. A small fitness center, massage room, and sauna are also on-site. But the location is a bit of a hike to downtown and other area attractions. For a more central property, travelers could try the Hotel Casa da Montanha.
This family-run, upper-middle-range bed-and-breakfast located in a quiet residential section just outside of downtown Gramado is a darling little romantic escape with -- as the name implies -- delightful gardens. Intimate and friendly, the property has 12 rooms that vary in decor and size, but all have individual charm and modern amenities like minibars, air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi.

The 48-room Hotel Bangalos da Serra is a family-friendly, upper-middle-range hotel with beautiful grounds in a quiet area outside of Gramado. With a focus on sustainability, the property is almost farmlike, with expansive green gardens and live animals on-site, a great feature for families with kids. Rooms and bungalows are simple and homey, with minibars, flat-screen TVs, and climate control; some even have charming wood-burning stoves. There is a nice outdoor pool with a children's pool, a small fitness center, and a game room plus a restaurant and bar open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The tranquil location is great for unwinding, but guests will need a car to tour the area sights.
The 15-room ModeVie Boutique Hotel is a mid-range property in downtown Gramado that offers a chic alternative to the chalet-style hotels in the area. Swapping Bavarian decor for clean, modern touches, this adults-only property is streamlined but still romantic.

Rooms include lots of tech toys such as large flat-screen TVs, iPads, and major sound systems; some rooms also have whirlpool tubs and balconies. While there is no gym or pool, there is a small, no-frills spa. Parking is street only, but bicycles are available for guest use, and most everything is walkable from this charming downtown hotel. Those looking for a family-friendly option could try the Hotel Ritta Höppner.
The 79-room upper-mid-range Hotel Casa da Montanha is a family-friendly hotel with plenty of antique charm in downtown Gramado. Natural wood accents and country-lodge decor give this property a warmth, and homey rooms include flat-screen TVs, minibars, and air-conditioning. Special themed suites, like the Christmas Suite, are a highlight. The hotel has a kid's play area and indoor pool as well as a sauna, whirlpool, and fitness center. The hotel serves a free daily buffet breakfast with plenty of choices, and has an on-site restaurant and bar. On the whole, this is a solid choice for those wishing to experience all the area has to offer within minutes of area attractions.
The 17-room Boutique Hotel Varanda das Bromelias is an upscale, romantic property located in Planalto, just outside of downtown Gramado. Owned by a glass designer, the hotel is a stylish and artistic retreat that's especially suited for couples. Rooms of varying sizes have a sophisticated, homey ambience plus modern features like flat-screen TVs, minibars, and air-conditioning. There is a small heated indoor pool, a fitness center, game room, and a full-service spa with a sauna and whirlpools on-site.

The 84-room, upper-middle-range Bavaria Sport Hotel in Gramado is an affordable chalet-style choice with plenty to keep kids and adults happy. Rooms vary in size and style, though all are mostly simple and have wood floors, simple Ikea-style furnishings, and flat-screen TVs. The property includes a heated indoor/outdoor pool, mini-golf, tennis courts, and a bright fitness center. A cozy on-site restaurant offers a free and generous daily breakfast buffet and there is a bar and lounge on-site. For an even more family-friendly escape, guests should consider Hotel Bangalos da Serra, which has expansive grounds and live farm animals for children to feed.
Resembling a Swiss manor relocated to Brazil, this 40-room, mid-range hotel offers very simple rooms with few amenities, and it's a good option for those traveling along the scenic drive that passes through Gramado. Situated about a 10-minute walk from downtown, the hotel has two on-site restaurants and is also near other dining options and shops. The rooms themselves are no-frills, with flat-screen TVs, minibars, and free -- although sporadic -- Wi-Fi. Some rooms have balconies and there is an outside garden area, as well. There isn't much here in the way of amenities, but the quaint architecture and convenient location make this a popular Gramado stopover.
This budget chalet-style hotel in the countryside about four miles outside of downtown Gramado offers a quiet escape in the woods, but it's definitely on the rustic side. The 18 separate cottages are built for double occupancy, and feel cozy and romantic with minimalist wood decor and modern features like flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and mini-fridges. However, the chalets could use a bit of refurbishment and better housekeeping, and there is a charge for firewood for the fireplaces. A free breakfast buffet is included, but there's no restaurant, so other meals have to be found elsewhere. There are minimal extras here -- no gym or business center -- but those seeking a private escape on the outskirts of town could find this fits the bill.
