Recently spent two nights in this characterful hotel. It is deceptively large once inside the building, with both an indoor and outdoor swimming pool and terraced gardens. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly and spoke good English. We had a small third floor room that was pretty basic but adequate for our stay over looking the main road.... More

Very well kept property, spotless clean throughout. Very nice historical building very close to all major attractions. Rooms on the smallish side but perfectly adequate. Limited selection of cable channels. Parking on the property which is a plus for the city. Breakfast spread reasonable: could use much more local products. Surprisingly good free wifi. All in all a good place... More

This hotel does not show its age. It is lovingly maintained -- beautiful furnishings, a fine restaurant and amenities unusual for a hotel of its age (indoor and outdoor pools; an exercise room, protected parking.) And it is on the side of Ouro Preto that tends to be quitter, so you can be away from the tourist craziness if you... More

In a gorgeous location, overlooking a jewel of colonial church architecture, this is a fine place to enjoy and relax in Ouro Preto. The atention to detail - from the decor to the garden flowers to the bed linen to the discrete and great service - makes the difference between good and great hotels. The only thing that upset us...

This hotel is definitely one of the top places to stay in Ouro Preto, with very well maintained rooms, gardens, etc. I've stayed 3 times. The food can be really good. However staff can be quite grumpy -- especially in the restaurant. The external pool was very dirty when I last visited and the breakfast was quite poor - that... More

The Solar do Rosario is not only architecturally imposing, but also extremely comfortable, and beautifully furnished, with floors and woodwork many European mansions would envy. The staff are helpful and polite, the plumbing of excellent standard - not always the case in Brazil - and the position of the hotel excellent for reaching many of the cultural spots. The restaurant... More

Having visited Ouro Preto a dozen times, we finally found the best place to stay. A cozy, even not being small, and with an unique colonial comfort, Solar do Rosário gave us a very nice one night stay. Breakfast was great with delicious pão de queijo and fruit mix.

Excellent staff (only 1 English speaker); beautiful lounge, dining room garden, a quiet room for reading too. Pool is not too brilliant, but what can you provide in this dense and hilly city centre? Breakfast was not only outstanding, but exciting with all its offerings and the environment. Dinner in the restaurant a treat, with great choice and reasonable price... More

The hotel itself is in a fantastic location, and the executive rooms are of very high standard with views of an old church, incredible wooden floors, great bathroom, best bed I've slept in. The hotel grounds are also nice, with a beautiful reception area, nice garden. The restaurant has good food and is charming. The weak link in this hotel... More

A wonderfully quaint hotel located in a quiet part of the town. Friendly staff, clean and mod cons throughout. Spacious and modern bathrooms, the restaurant downstairs served a great omelette amongst other tasty items.
