Located right on the main street in town, just a block down the hill from the central square, so this is a great base to explore Ouro Preto on foot. As mentioned by other reviewers, the street out front is extremely noisy. You should try to request a room in the rear, if possible. They are quite peaceful at night,... More

In citycentre with everything at walking distance. Very small basic room, nearly no walking space. Free wifi working pretty good in the room. Afternoon tea and breakfast in souterrain, not very cosy. We had a room at the back which was quiet and had nice view especially at sunset

The high point about the Classica Pousada is the location, just in front of the main street of Ouro Preto. By night it was not noisy. The breakfast was an average and staff was not so friendly at all. Price was a little bit high for what it delivers.

Good pousada and very good location ; they managed to put us in contact with Paulo MENDES a french guide from the tourist office and we had a private visit - all in French - with this very nice guy. If you visit Ouro Preto and it's worthwile we recommend PAULO MENDES.

This would be an average hotel except for it's great location in the centre of town and walking distance to everything. Rooms are comfortable but basic. We were in the rear but I can imagine the front to be very noisy in this lively town. Afternoon tea is a nice touch and appreciated. Staff were friendly and helpful

In the world of pousada´s this is an average place in a very noisy street. The location is indeed worth considering because walking around in Ouro Preto can be a challenge because of the steep streets. Classica is near the main square Tiradentes. The rooms are clean, you can open a window and there is a hotel-parking at the backside... More

This hotel lies in the middle of the old town, right next to the main square. An excellent place to start walks around the town from. The hotel rooms are very nice and the old feeling are always present without anything not working due to being old. The only thing (charming more than troublesome) is that the room windows actually... More

The Classica is an average pousada on the main street in Ouro Preto. The location is great, and whilst it is noisy on the front, we were warned in advance about this. Unfortunately my earplugs weren't sufficient to block out 15 minutes of church bells at 6am on a Saturday morning, however for a heavy sleeper it should be fine.... More

The location of this pousada was perfect for us. It was 30 seconds to Tiradentes square & lots of museams, churches, restaurants and shops right on the doorstep. The breakfast was great and the complimentary afternoon tea (tea, coffee, hot chocolate along with various breads and cakes) was a great touch from 5 to 7pm each night and perfect to... More

I loved this hotel. Great rooms, really clean and not too small - modern clean bathroom. The staff were great but better to try out your portuguese if you can. The icing on the cake was an early evening complimentary buffet with just beverages, cakes, and some pastries but PERFECT! when you return after a day out sightseeing.
