Anything we could write about our stay at this hotel would be little compared with what we experienced there: friendly and helpful staff, great location, near downtown Ouro Preto, carefull restaurated historical building and, last but not least, the owner, Roberto. Extremely helpful, friendly and a very nice person, he made everything - and more - to make our stay... More

We liked this place, though it wasn't among the nicest that we stayed at during our trip through Minas Gerais (I have reviews on the other places we liked better!). The rooms were nice in terms of the historic features (wood ceilings, etc.), but were pretty basic in terms of furnishings. One thing that was annoying was that we had... More

We had a lovely stay. The hotel is cute, has really nice installations, books, a beautiful place with nice architecture where we had breakfast, the room was clean and had just enough what we needed. The staff was very friendly and helpful too. The location is good too, near the beautiful Igreja do Rosário. We recommend it :)

Solar de Maria pousada that I left some days ago, is a friendly place in a quiet area of Ouro Preto. As it's the low season, there were few tourists in Ouro preto ; I was lucky ; the price I got was very reasonable ; the employees are friendly and discret enough ; the owner is very sympathic, formerly...

We stayed in a 'superior room' with a modern bathroom and a large shower. The owner and staff were very helpful answering our questions and making restaurant suggestions. Best meal at Bené de Flauta. Quiet- 15 minute walk to Praca Tiredentes—the main square—and close to a great jazz bar, Barroco & Barroco. Very good value. Tastefully decorated. Suzanne & Ted.... More

I just saw positive points in this hotel: - big parking lot inside the hotel (driving in the streets of Ouro Preto is very complicated) - spacious and clean rooms / with fridge - 5 minutes walking to the city center - very good breakfast - excellent staff, very nice and helpful people Important to emphasize that the rooms do...

This hotel is a classic in decor and attitude. It is not trendy nor hip, but more of an aged find. The rooms are comfortable, but very small if it is a standard. I upgraded to a double suite with a street view and was much happier with the room (maybe not so much with the price). The hotel is... More

Spent a rather pleasant 4 nights in this hotel. Very comfy room with large double bed and then room for a single bed. En suite bathroom with large shower- for some reason there was no hot water on the first day of my stay but after that it was more than hot enough with good pressure. I had a room... More

I stayed for three days very enjoyable days in this charming hotel. The hotel is really a nice mix of old charm (it is an old convent) and modern amenities, including internet access and new, modern bathrooms. Staff were very helpful and attentive to small details, like providing umbrellas when it rained. There seemed to be only one English speaker... More
