Don't ask why, but i was basically adopted by the people on this Pousada. I had trouble with my bookings, so they did EVERYTHING was possible to get things right. This was my first Brazilian trip so i didn't know what to expect. These people at the Pousada left a life long impression! Excellent service, location, atmosphere: Breakfast is hand... More

I stayed this year for the third time in a row for 2 weeks in Beco do Bispo. I always enjoy staying here because of the location, cleanliness, size of the rooms, great breakfast and friendly people. This pousada is perfect to discover Sao Joao del Rei. Everything is present, even a safe car park in the street. What do... More

I found this pousada here in TripAdvisor, and I would never have chosen it if I saw it in the city from the street. The logo is horrible and you may think the pousada is also. But thankfully it's not true: it's a beautiful place, the room had very cute and homey decoration, and the service was friendly. I'll definately... More

Our stay at Beco do Bispo couldn't have been more enjoyable. The hotel is very stylish with a great pool, impeccably clean and comfortable rooms, and other lounging areas. The hotel was right by the beautiful San Francisco church and in the nicely intact historic core of Sao Joao. The English speaking host, Nitza, was very friendly and the most... More

Everything was good. The rooms are spacious, the pousada is very cozy, well located (5 minutes to the city center), with a swimming pool, delicious breakfast. There is a big parking lot across the street. One negative point: the air conditioning is the old style (noisy). A "split" would be better.

This is an extremely pleasant place for a reasonable price. Very nice room and nice areas to sit outside the room. Very friendly staff. Even though I don't speak portuguese, they manages to be very helpful. I have nothing bad to say about it.

This must be one of the best pousadas in Brazil! I spent three weeks in Brazil in August and Beco do Bispo was, without doubt, the most comfortable and welcoming place I stayed in during my travels. Not enough can be said about the warmth and hospitality of the owner Nitza. She will do anything to address your needs and... More

Probably one of the best luxury lodges I've stayed. Was just looking for a nice place to spend the night, and found perfection. Perfect in every way.

This was the best pousada we stayed in during our trip to Minas Gerais. The bed was amazing - big enough for three and really comfortable! The pousada provided free wi-fi throughout. Breakfast was really nice, although if it had been warm fresh out of the oven if would have been even better! The staff were friendly and helpful. The... More

"I stayed at this Pousada (hotel) for the entire month of May. The place is wonderful and well managed. The help is extremely friendly and is immaculate. They go out of their way to make you feel at home. The breakfast is always ready and has plenty of choices. The location is great... close to the center of town and... More
