Overall I think the hotel is poor to average. First of all, non of the staff speaks well English and understood my questions. I was not happy with the fact that they said to me that I booked for 3 people (my conformation says 1 person), WIFI is terrible / not working (at the room), I could not order a... More

The beautifull Hotel Luxor has spacious rooms in a very classic and sympathic style. It is a bit out of centre, but within ten minutes you can walk up to the main square. Good for your condition! Breakfast is perfect, the staff is very nice. The only thing I missed was espresso coffee.

if one want to feel living in the XVII century then is mandatory to stay at this charming hotel in Ouro Preto. The cute restaurant is said to be used as a salt storage despite some say it was the dungeon to keep the property slaves. On its initial layout the hotel was the residence of a priest. The front...

I stayed at this charming hotel when I was in Ouro Preto – some 400 km north of Rio de Janeiro. I was there in October 2012 with some business associates who were being filmed for a TV programme called “The Gem Hunters” produced by The Travel Channel. Ouro Preto is a world heritage site. The town’s main square is... More

It's a good hotel 5 minutes walk (steep!, as it's everything in Ouro Preto) from Placa Tiradentes with beautiful St.Francis church on your way. Big rooms, clean but without ventilator and A/C, not a problem during our stay but I think it could be a problem in summer. Some refreshing would be welcome! Very good bathroom. Wi-Fi, people at desk... More

We are currently spending four nights in Ouro Preto over Easter. This is the kind of pousada we love. It is very close to the towns square. It is very clean and pleasant. It is not extravagant or fancy. The front desk people speak English and are very willing to answer questions and help. The breakfast was nicely laid out.... More

Everything was good about this hotel. It's located near the sights in Ouro Preto; The staff are nice and service minded; The breakfast was delicious; The room was nice, though a bit "tired", but the bed was good. Rooms are big, that's a pluss.

We stayed one night at this hotel .We had a standard room wich was very large and simply decorated.Maybe in need of some freshening up but comfortable with a nice view .A little bit noisy as no double glazing and the road is quite noisy.There is parking available.Wifi in the lounge which is lovely. For a small hotel the buffet... More

The location of the Hotel is perfect, in the historical center, but easy to reach by car. The hotel is nice and people quite friendly. If i come back to Ouro Preto i'd try to come here again. ... and Ouro Preto is terrific !!!

Located in the historic centre this Pousada is in a good location. The staff were courteous and tried very hard to accomodate their guests. The lobby and rooms are decorated in an authentic setting and are kept very clean.
