Classy beautiful building , great location , amazing views , incredible bedrooms. Shame we only stay for one night . If you're going to Ouro Preto , this hotel is a must do /stay. Attention to details are very impressive.

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

I agree with my fellow Massachusetts traveller. The hotel is a gem and is very charming. The staff was welcoming, informative and professional. I found the breakfast very nice and above average. Eggs were cooked to order on a wood fireplace which I found very nice. Our room overlooked a beautiful 17th century Catholic church and the street scape had... More

It's the start of our holiday in South America and this is a great start. Ouro Preto is a World Heritage Site and well worth this accolade. To go with the town is this excellent hotel not far from the centre, but you have to be prepared for some very tiring walking. There are many hills here and most of... More

Loved this hotel. Great character, great value, impeccable service and food. Highly recommend as THE hotel of choice in Ouro Preto. In fact, having traveled to Europe, Asia, South America and all over the US (home), this is a top five hotel for me.

When we arrived at the 2pm our room was not ready and we got the option either to pay for an higher price available room or wait half hour for the standard room we had booked. This is one of the few hotels in Brazil that still claim an extra 10% service charge on top of the publicly advertised and... More

This hotel is a converted large multi-residence from Ouro Preto's early days. Much of what you see in this hotel, including wood, stone, and tiling are as much historical relics as the various tourist attractions themselves. DO NOT expect this to be a spa-laden, english-fluent modern-day Hilton. Appreciate it for what it is. Here are some tips to help you... More

I stayed in this hotel years ago and loved it, but this time was a major disappointment. It is still beautiful, although the pool has been moved and is now much less charming. The first room we were given was just awful. Very small, smelling of mold, with a tiny bathroom and a toilet that took several attempts before finally... More

The standard room is extremely small and dusty, and the toilet does not flush properly. The shower curtain on the window is torn; the tile floors are stained and dirty. The bedroom is very small. Walls are very thin, you can hear people walking down the hallway. We complained about the dirt and toilet and the person in charge said... More
