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We were not impressed, a nasty out of date room, puritan staff, faux-kitsch monstrosity for decor, incredibly expensive and down a dirty back alley.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.

Very nice pousada, friendly and helpful staff! Decent breakfast. Clean and quiet rooms. It's close to the bus station, but there is a free shuttle service available from 9am to 11pm, which takes the guests to downtown, it is really convenient. Worthy price!
