The rooms are really confortable and pleasant, the staff nice and helpful (they speak some English), the garden a really nice place to hang around. Breakfast is very good (you even have a cook who makes your scrambled eggs on wood fire). It is within walking (climbing?) distance of all the places of interest in Ouro Preto. Altogether an excellent... More

In May 2014 I made a reservation for my parents. The reservation was cancelled by us due to logistics. After this, the hotel, and specially the sales manager (Tatiane Alves) were wonderful to solve the problem. Most companies will just process the credit card reversal and forget about it (the credit card company made a mistake and did not process... More

We drove in without any hotel reservations and we were so glad to have found this hotel. It has so much charm, hotel staff very friendly and beds very comfortable. If you... More

Very nice hotel, nice rooms, great breakfast and good service. Level of english is ok. It is located at a fantastic place and at walking distance of the centre of the village. Be prepared to have nice walks with steep climbs.

We decided to give this hotel a second chance, because the restaurant and breakfast were so good. 3 years ago we also stayed at this hotel, but we left after 1 night because the rooms were too noisy. This year we were given a room in the back, which is more quiet, and with a decent-sized bed, but the room... More

Fabulous property with magnificent views and gorgeous , expansive patios and gardens. Staff went out of their way to make us comfortable; specifically the night desk clerk, Jean Batiste with his ability to communicate fluently in multiple languages and to share his knowledge about the beautiful Ouro Preto. the breakfast was absolutely amazing; its buffet took up an entire room...

This hotel is in an amazing old building in a very central part of town with beautiful views. The dinner we had in the restaurant was probably one of the best I ate during our stay in Brazil. It was beautifully served and delicious. The waiters were very attentive. The breakfast was equally as delicious with a lady cooking eggs... More

This is a excellent hotel in a perfect location. Great facilities, friendly staff providing a quite rest after going up and down in Ouro Preto. It has a candle lit restaurant which looks very pleasant and romantic but we didn't try it because there was no more than two people in each of the three days we were there. Good... More
