We stayed at Lacos de Minas for three nights in January 2013, and I would definitely stay there again, it was excellent and well priced. The pousada is located a few minutes walk downhill from the town square, near the stone market, down a narrow little street. It's still in the centre of the town, but just far enough away... More

Nice place, great location, close to the Stone Market. Very clean, nicely decorated - typical Mineiro way, a quaint hotel - and also new. Breakfast is great and from 5 to 6 they offer a 'tea time'. Would definitely come here again.

We staid in Pousada Lacos de Mina's for one night as part of a broader trip through the historic cities of Mina's Gerais. We love staying here, as the building was very charming and so was the room, all in keeping with the historic character of Ouro Preto. We could park our car nearby and were a short walk from...

Clean, newly refurbished and with a lovely breakfast area. Quite an uphill hike to close by city center. Good selection of juices and fruits for breakfast. Close to City center and shops. There is no elevator but there are people to carry your luggage upstairs.

Was a pretty good location, but be advised it is a huff of an uphill hike into town square - but a short hike. Floor was spit-shined so vigorously that it was almost too slippery to walk on. Breakfast was good.

This was a lovely pousada, conveniently located in Ouro Preto. I had an extra weekend in Brazil before meetings in Belo Horizonte, so took the bus out to Ouro Preto for a Saturday night stay and sightseeing on Sunday. This pousada was perfect for my needs. Easy and quick taxi ride from the bus terminal to the pousada (a long... More

The rooms are the right size, not very large, but comfortable and clean.The street is quiet, but the rooms are not exactly soundproofed. We could overhear the neighbours talking on the street bellow our balcony and kind of take part in the... More
