“Boa opção em Ouro Preto”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

Comfortable Hotel, tastefully decorated and very well located in a quiet area of town. Rooms are not all equal but SOME of them are VERY small. Fantastic breakfast (the best we´ve had) and good restaurant. In the lobby there is one of the best jewelries in town with modern and different models. The seller Patricia is a very kind and attentive person, fashioning a ring especially for me. For those who are seeking jewelry and stones, this is "the place" in Ouro Preto.

Solar do Rosario is a beautiful hotel in the middle of Ouro Preto. Pros: the very cordial staff, the location - near most of the famous churches in Ouro Preto, and boasts excellent view of the churches of Rosario dos Pretos, São Francisco de Paulo, Nossa Senhora do Rosario, São José and the Pico do Itacolomi, a very good restaurant and a wonderful breakfast. Cons: rooms are quite comfy, but (very) small; almost no wireless internet in the rooms – you will get a poor signal only in the lobby. But Solar do Rosario absolutely worth the stay.

Stayed one night here in June, when the hotel seemed pretty empty. Room was small but very comfortable, with a beautiful bathroom. The grounds are gorgeous and the staff very friendly and professional, though English was limited. Incredible breakfast spread in a beautiful restaurant. We loved our stay!

This is a charming place with excellent service and beautifully decorated. The food is also very good! The rooms, although ours was a bit small are nice and cosy, the beds comfortable.

A lovely hotel that meanders around several different buildings with courtyards. Tries hard to be five star and for a village like this it is probably as close as you'll get. Somewhat limited English capabilities at the desk, but they are friendly and willing.

Room Tip: The rooms in the newer wing are superior to the original and away from the street noise.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

My husband and I stayed there for 2 nights in February. We are travelling for 5 weeks in Brazil.
I am thinking that a hotel is only as good as the room you are given. We had a small room on the top (third) floor overlooking the street, which could be noisy at times, with a king bed. The bathroom was small and shabby with need of refurbishment. There is no air conditioning, however the situation of the town is high on a hill and it was cool at night. The reception staff spoke a little English, which we found to be a problem at times. We liked the restaurant very much. Having stayed in other countries in true 5 star hotels, I certainly cannot call this hotel 5 stars. It is probably the best or one of the best in this charming city but by hotel standards in general I can only say it is 3 stars.
