Very central location within walking distance from the main square of Ouro Preto. This hotel fits well within the city with it's red roof and colonial style building. Rooms were large and also in colonial style. Breakfast was ok. Car parking in front of the hotel.

The hotel is very well located, it is very close to the main square in the city; many important churches, such as N. S do Carmo and São Francisco are in walking distance. The breakfast is excellent and the people that work there are very nice and helpful.

It's home! Full of a rich history of writers - Elizabeth Bishop, Pablo Neruda, Jorge Amado. Plus Vinicius de Moraes, henry Kissinger... Every room is styled differently, a large salon to read or watch a film. Pleasant breakfast. Off the main tourist streets and tranquil. A poodle that keeps watch on the window sill amd a terrier type that cuddles... More

Very good value for money, Its like staying with a family and you feel at home. The first night I stayed in the smallest room which was the only one available at the time, had to share the bathroom which was OK for just one night. But quite noisy too, you heard neighbours and located just above the main entrance... More

I am still chocked and trying hard to understand why all French reviews of this hotel were so positive. After staying in very charming and genuine places all over the French countryside I was expecting something similar. Unfortunately we've found a very amateur staff and owner, expensive priced and lack of kindness. After arriving in an old creepy and freezing... More

I stayed there in July with my wife and her mom. We found the location ideal and the staff very helpful. They have offstreet parking in their small courtyard that was much appreciated. Breakfast was very good and I especially liked the coconut covered puffs. Very good view out our window at a church on the hill.

Ouro Preto is one of the most charming villages in Brazil and no trip to this country is complete without walking along is narrow streets. It is not only a beautiful rural setting but also a place where the story of the slaves and gold diggers speaks for itself. With this in my mind I must say I chose the... More

I was looking forward to staying here after the other reviews. I was very very disapointed in the service and the house itself. Breakfast was fine, same as everywhere else. Nice touch with cup of tea in the afternoon with cake. But the room, when we stayed in June, was FREEZING. Cannot stress that enough. There was option to rent... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend and my mom and we loved this pousada, which is really a big old house. We stayed in rooms 8 and 3 and they were great and full of character. All the furniture is antiques because everything really is that old, so yes, everything is pretty creaky but nothing was falling apart and they... More
