We have two connecting rooms for us and our daughters, both rooms were comfortable, clean and in a good working order. The AC (split) needs some maintenance, it works, but makes some noises which are disturbing during the night. The personnel is great, always ready to help and give tips. The transport back and forth to downtown works well and... More

Three reasons for giving this hotel 5 stars. One: the staff was very helpful and friendly; before we opened the door of the hotel someone came out and carried our bags inside. Two: they have a free taxi service (I think until 11pm) that takes you to the historical center of the town, whenever you want. You call and they... More

I sought the Hotel Arcanjo for its reputation on TripAdvisor, and got a room due to another guest's cancellation. When I arrived, I was greeted with great warmth by Messrs. Benicio and Geraldo, dressed in period costumes. The hotel is fairly well decorated and maintained. The room was a little tight for 4 people (2 adults and 2 children) but... More

I've stayed at this pousada many times before when I used to work as tourleader for dutch groups in Brazil. Recently after many years I've been there again, and the good smiley service, excellent breakfast and comfortable and well equipped rooms remains the same. The English tea with crackers, cakes, coffee etc is a plus after a good walk at... More

This is one of those rare instances where the tripadvsior rating ended up being way off base. This hotel is very dated. The furniture, probably from the 1960s, is worn down. The entire place needs a major refurbishment. The food was by far the worst we had during our entire 28 day visit to Brazil. The location outside the main... More

This hotel feels more like the small, quaint home that you might rent in the mountains during the winter. It has wood ceilings, an interest and comfortable waitting room with a fireplace and warm furniture, and reflects the history of by-gone years. As a hotel owner, I can also say that they have thought about all the amenities and offer... More

Arriving in Ouro Preto after a very long day that had started with a World Cup thrill of a game in Belo Horizonte, the warm welcome by the smiling staff at the Pousada was a much needed balm. Wonderful place, ample well appointed room. Friendly complimentary quick van ride to the main square, a good solution to the pousada's only... More

This was a wonderful place to stay. It's on a side road leading into the historic part of town, within easy walking distance (on uneven sidewalks) to the center of town. Fairly quiet, and out of the main tourist flow. Great views of the churches in the city, and the hills surrounding the town. Afternoon tea, and a restaurant in... More

Unfortunately we only stop there for one night as we were driving back to Belo Horizonte, but the experience was still fabulous, the pousada is very charming, its like a throwback in colonial time, the staff was so polite and helpful, as we were leaving early in the morning the set the breakfast earlier just for us.

Charming, quaint and friendly. A hotel with great character and friendly and helpful staff. Just a 100 yards off the main road and down a rustic street with character and certainly not a back alley. Was on the expensive side but then again where wasn't during the World Cup. Loved the fireplace in the evenings. Would wholeheartedly recommend.
