Our initial impression of Hotel Solar do Rosario was unfortunately negative due to inefficient organisation , by the hotel, of our transport from Belo Horizonte to the hotel. The driver was late and we rang the hotel to be told transport had not been confirmed even after receiving an email to the contrary. The outcome of this saga was that... More

A very beautiful old building, with charm, taking you back in time. Breakfast plentiful, with fresh products. Nice staff. Alas we were given a room on the top floor, at the back of the elevator motor, very noisy. As we complained we were kindly offered a much nicer "apartamento" and told we may have to move after 2 days. Which... More

We had some problems finding the hotel, as our GPS didn't know the exact address. Ouro Preto is a lot of steep and narrow roads so we were a little stressed when we saw the hotel. It was wonderful how our stress levels dropped by the reception of the hotel. Our bags were off loaded while we checked in and... More

A gem! Fantastic service in a beautiful old building. Pleasantly situated just a stone's throw from the city centre and thus away from the hustle and bustle of tourists. The restaurant is charming with an excellent menu, very good food and fair prices. Do stay here, it is worth it.

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
