This pousada is located close to the bus station. There are signs so it's very easy to get there, no need to ask anyone or take a taxi. It's also within a walking distance to the city center. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming. They give good directions about the places worth visiting. I liked the international atmosphere as... More

Our group of 8 (4 adults, 4 teenagers) spent 5 nights at Pousada Sao Francisco de Paula and would happily return for 5 more! Maria, Vinicio and the rest of the staff were very accommodating, helpful, flexible and friendly. The breakfast was delicious, the grounds were rustic and peaceful and the views are just tremendous. Though not right in the... More

This is an amazing place in a fantastic setting in a beautiful garden within a wood next to the botanical gardens 5 minutes from the bus station and about 10 to 15 minutes from town. Clean rooms and facilities and excellent breakfasts. Rooms facing the view can be a bit noisy at weekends.

The room was nice with a nice view. Everything was clean. We stayed in one of the upper rooms beside the kitchen. The staff was cozy and nice. The breakfast was very poor. No cheese, ham or egg. The bed was TERRIBLE!!!! The madras was very thin and so the bed was like a rock. The price was very reasonable.

I have spent one night in the dorm room. The bunk beds were great, but the sheets smelled a bit musty. The shared toilet and showers were very small. But even though this pousada was a cozy place to stay with a beautiful view of the town. The staff was very friendly for a chat and kept my valuables safe... More

I rang ahead of our arrival to reserve a room and got a very cordial response from the owner to confirm our reservation in broken Spanish as he didn't speak English and my Portuguese was poor. When we arrived at 7am, the owner was lovely. He invited us to have breakfast, and gave us a choice of rooms. The smaller... More

Myself and my partner spent 2 nights here in May 2012. We originally planned to stay somewhere else, but couldn't find it as it had relocated! We walked around for a bit, with our heavy bags and decided to go back up the hill to Pousada Sao Francisco de Paula. We are pleased we did. We paid 90 Reais a... More

I chose this pousada as it was the closest to the bus terminal and it was raining. I arrived the week after easter, tradtionally a very slow period. There were only 2 others staying in the pousada. I asked if there was a discount for staying 2 nights and was offered 20%. Nothing ventured nothing gained. Having unpacked I had... More

Located on one of the hills, this pousada overlooks the town of Ouro Preto. Especially from the more expensive rooms you get a great view. But that's the best part of this place. To reach the hotel, you need to park at the church of Sao Francisco de Paula and walk for a couple minutes on a dirt track. The... More
