This is a beautiful pousada and highly recommended if you are planning a trip to Sao Joao del Rei. My description hardly does justice to this fine pousada. The bathroom in #3 is remarkably industrial chic. High gloss black tiles climb seven feet up on all four walls, offset by contrasting green appliances that would have been colors-du-jour in the...

Villa Magnolia is a cozy small hotel on the main square of Sao Joao del Rei. It is very well appointed in the common rooms, including the breakfast restaurant, with colonial and antique furniture. The rooms are OK but lack air conditioning. There is a pool and free parking in the garden. The personnel are quite helpful. I highly recommend... More

Wide, fresh air, clean, great service and the breakfast is delicious. We stayed at the luxury suite that is really enormous with excellent cable tv, huge shower and a useful tub. Be prepared for mosquitoes. There are stairs everywhere. what makes life difficult for handicapped. The pool is good but very cold. All common areas are comfortable. There's parking for... More

This may well be the best place in town, but it certainly does not deserve an "excellent" rating. The service was non-existent, the pool area very dirty and uninviting, and the breakfast uninspiring compared to all other places we visiting the Brazil. The rooms were basic. The upside is that the location is second to none. It is immediately opposite... More

We stayed at Villa Magnolia 2 nights in March 2012. Pousada Villa Magnolia is a very attractively renovated historic building in an excellent quiet location right next to the Igreja de Sao Francisco and is a good value. Nice private courtyard in the rear. Near the university and close to good restaurants for an evening meal. We particularly enjoyed the... More

Stayed there one night. The pousada is really an old house, completely renewed but with a lot of charm. The room was really good, clean, cosy and quiet. Very good breakfast. The location is really fine, right across the main church of the city. You do everything by feet. I really recommend it!
