I had a great stay here over Easter weekend! Perfect location! Helpful staff (if you speak Portuguese... But I'm sure they'd find a way to help even if you didn't). Comfortable bed. Balcony overlooking the city. Nothing fancy, but really a quiet, restful retreat that served as the perfect base for exploring the city!

Only stayed one night, as it was full for carnaval. Nice clean room. Great view! Close to the center. But very steep streets. Nice breakfast with plenty to choose from. Try the carrot cake! The receptionist even spoke a bit of dutch.

The inn has an awesome location in the high part of the city. The air conditioning was being renewed so they weren't working during our stay. We had a issue with the bathroom too. And we had to wait while they tried to solve it. Doesn't worth the price. The only reason to stay there is the location. All other... More

I made a mistake while making my reservation for Ouro Preto. Then I called the Pousada directly and talked to the manager Pedro, who was very kind and helpfull and did provide a cancellation without any cost, even though it was clearly my mistake, as I said from the beginning. I hope to have an opportunity soon to come to... More

It's a charming place. Definitely ask for a room at the to plevel so you wake up to a beautiful view. Rooms are spacious and clean. I haven't met anybody in staff that knows English but they go beyond expected to help you out. Breakfast is good. Lots of pastries, sweets, which is typical for Brazil. Fresh orange juice as...

As we were coming by car from Belo Horizonte, it has been a bit hard to find the street where the Pousada is located. And this cobbled street is really steep (about 70%)! The first time, I asked someone at the hotel to drive the car for me into their parking area, half way down this steep, cobbled road! Once... More

Bare bones, dank and somewhat dark rooms, dingy breakfast (fruit bowl full of nearly-mouldy fruit), tepid service. Overpriced. They give you the worst room available when you arrive and are reluctant to change you even when you point out how many empty ones they have.

We just stayed here for three days during the July winter festival. For 250 reais (apx. $120 U.S.) per night, the value is a joke. Yes, it's an interesting old mansion and the views are nice, but the TV has three channels, the wifi doesn't work in the rooms, there's no heating of any kind beyond old horse blankets of... More

The room was clean, comfortable lovely, clean and had a wonderful view of the town and the surrounding mountains. .
