Stayed in lower level room facing wall and parking lot. Few rooms have views. Far from center. Shuttle works but if you want to go anywhere but central square, they charge you an extra 10 reals. Internet was very weak in the rooms, a bit better in lobby. Very noisy also. Food good and staff friendly. Would however try another... More

We were given a handicapped room with 2 very small bed..view of the parking lot on ground floor . Slapping door next to us. Very noisy! Definitely not worth the money! Hotel is far away from center of city. But good shuttle system and friendly staff.

Charming, with nicely decorated room and good AirCon. Nice afternoon tea in common lobby area. Helpful front desk, although not everyone speaks English. Initially, we thought the hotel was a bit out of the way and far from town. But, there is a very convenient shuttle bus ready to take you to/from town as often as you want (for dinner,... More

A very scenic and comfortable place to stay. The staff is so cordial and helpful. We love the vast seating areas which feels like an extending living room.

Whether you're visiting Ouro Preto for work or pleasure, you'll be pleased by this pousada. The fact that the staff wears period costumes just gives it a special touch. The staff on hand is very polite and professional in their dealings with the customers. The rooms are very well appointed and are comfortable regardless of the temperature outside. The shuttle...

We have two connecting rooms for us and our daughters, both rooms were comfortable, clean and in a good working order. The AC (split) needs some maintenance, it works, but makes some noises which are disturbing during the night. The personnel is great, always ready to help and give tips. The transport back and forth to downtown works well and... More

Thank you for considering our hotel as a very good option in our town. One of our distinguished features is really the option of connecting rooms which fits well to family needs such as yours. Our AC splits usually get maintenance every 6 to 8 months. Noises sometimes occur due to internal defrost and temperature differences. Our personnel extends their... More

Three reasons for giving this hotel 5 stars. One: the staff was very helpful and friendly; before we opened the door of the hotel someone came out and carried our bags inside. Two: they have a free taxi service (I think until 11pm) that takes you to the historical center of the town, whenever you want. You call and they... More

I sought the Hotel Arcanjo for its reputation on TripAdvisor, and got a room due to another guest's cancellation. When I arrived, I was greeted with great warmth by Messrs. Benicio and Geraldo, dressed in period costumes. The hotel is fairly well decorated and maintained. The room was a little tight for 4 people (2 adults and 2 children) but... More
