Good hotel located in the center of town. It's just a short walk to all the historic sites in Ouro Preto. The hotel has nice views of the town's steep hills and churches. The hotel itself is just basic. The rooms are fine, a little dated. Mine didn't have air conditioning, which was fine temperature-wise, but the rooms are pretty... More

Perfect location in the middle of the town, free parking. Rooms are clean, furniture a bit outdated, great view from the balcony. The penthouse-style-suites are large and worth the additional money. Very friendly, helpful staff.

A striking building from the 1940s by Oscar Niemeyer with some good period furniture and effects. The staff are really helpful and very pleasant; it was a great joy to have all our luggage carried up to our room (it is a hilly location!). Good parking and an excellent central location with a number of good restaurants nearby. The hotel,... More

Nice, simple hotel, centrally located. Rooms are simple and comfortable. Staff don't speak much English but are friendly and try to assist. It has parking and it's easier to find than some posadas if you're driving. They have a small pool which would be good for summer. Breakfast was a basic buffet. This hotel is over priced but convenient.

The place is good, but for the price you pay you can find better places in one of the pousadas...The breakfast is very good and also the view is attractive. Rooms are medium but clean and confortable. No issues with the staff as well.

This hotel is well positioned but it is in serious need of an upgrade. As a building it is fantastic (classically Niemeyer) but seriously let down by its poor maintenance despite its friendly staff. We walked out after a day.

I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel with a small group of students from the US. One of the favorite stops of the trip was our visit to Ouro Preto. This hotel added to the experience because of it's charm and character. The architecture is very unique and takes full advantage of its location with views of the... More

I am currently staying here, on business, and I am so excited to check out in the morning. I cannot and will not fall asleep because I am afraid what may come crawling out. I am not sure where people are getting these photos from, but they DO NOT reflect this hotel. I noticed the site, or some users, highlight... More

This is a beautiful hotel and the suites with the wooden spiral staircase are an absolute delight. I don't understand why it is described as an eyesore - it's so well designed that you can barely see it from the town (not so wonderful when you are trying to find it!!) and inside its clean bright lines are a lovely...

It's clean and quite modern for local standards. Mini bar is cheap and breakfast was OK. Swimming pool is small but clean. No design at all, no spirit in such a place. Very small, uncomfortable beds. Location is good - close to main tourists attractions and bars and restaurants.
