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.

Overpricing seems to be the tendency everywhere you go in Brazil. Here you have the typical case of a normal rated hotel in a small colonial city inland Minas Gerais with some effort made to decorate the social area with a charming combination of wood and stone taken from some kind of alps ambience. Bad news is that the charge... More

We thank you for rating our hotel and staff as charming and professional. And sorry to mention that we did not copy our style from some kind of alps ambience.

We were not impressed, a nasty out of date room, puritan staff, faux-kitsch monstrosity for decor, incredibly expensive and down a dirty back alley. The pousada next door was half the price. Do not stay here. Ouro Preto is beautiful. Arcanjo is not.

We are sorry that your experience with our hotel was not as pleasant as it is to the majority of our patrons. And we sincerely could not understand what was meant as a “puritan staff” since it is one of our highlights in the appraisal of other guests. The hotel neighborhood comprises small homes with local people. Which allows visitors... More

The inn is very charming, well kept and clean. It offers a shuttle to the town's main square which is great! Breakfast is very good and I could go on about this little details, but what really gives this place an Excellent score is the Staff. Extremely friendly, eager to accommodate you and truly enchanting. I'd definitely recommend this place!

This charming Pousada has the feel of a European alpine garni, with a cosy feel to it. The staff are very good and extremely helpful. The rooms are practical, functional and comfortable.
