4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

Lovely hotel located in the historical city of Ouro Preto. Nice service, nice room, nice breakfast. A bit too expensive, but worth it.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2011

I'm not much for words, but wanted to add a review for this hotel. It's the only place we've ever stayed in Ouro Preto, so I can't give a good comparison. I feel like, given what they had to work with, they've done an excellent job. Beautifully done, very ambient. My kids were a little creeped out because it was an old rickety place, but I liked it. As a previous reviewer mentioned, it's noisy. Both from the road as well as from the hallway. The rooms have an open vent straight to the halls, so it lacks some privacy. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful.

This is a very cute hotel in Ouro Preto, Brasil. It's a quaint Inn with nice rooms, located fairly central to the plaza. In Ouro Preto, about everything is either uphill or downhill, so central is a relative term. We enjoyed the hotel and facilities. There is a decent Internet connection for those who can't break away, and the hotel serves a typical Brasilian "cafe de manya" with quite a variety of foods.

The only problem we had was that the hotel faces what turned out to be a main road through the city, so we were treated to traffic - not heavy, but often noisy trucks, until close to midnight each night, and again starting around 6am. If the weather is cool enough, you can close the windows and get some relief, but if it's warm, there's no a/c, so you must open the window.

There are some rooms that face the side, so if you book this hotel, make sure that you get one of those rooms.

  • Liked — Nice facility, comfy rooms, good breakfast
  • Disliked — Traffic noise in rooms facing front of hotel
  • Tips/Secrets — Get a side room!
