The pousada is by the train station but a good 20min walk from the main bus station, though you can take a 5min local bus for R$2 single.

The rooms are fairly small, run down and strangely decorated with weived ceiling panels and with windows opening into the room providing a view of the wall of the adjacent building with each with it's own train themed painting.

The toilet/Shower was incredibly tiny and we are not fat people.

The friendly staff were eager to help (apart from the breakfast lady who was not happy when I told her the cheese and ham needed replenishing). Breakfast is adequate (not abundant) as described in lonely planets 2008. Only good value if you can haggle down the price as we did over the phone with the help of a portugese speaker.

Would recommend if you have an early bus to catch out of town. ALL buses outside the train station towards the Rodavaria will stop outside the Rodavaria. very convenient with backpacks.

A beautiful place to spend a few nights. Old fashioned with modern touches. Antique furniture. Gorgeous foot wide hardwood planks on the floors. Woven bamboo mats on the ceilings. Freshly varnished wooden shutters with interesting strret scenes painted on the walls outside the windows. Nice staff, as English is spoken. Cafe de manha is taken in the grotto-like basement restaurant. Paying cash up front gets a small discount. If you are in Sao Joao to ride the Maria Fumaca to Tiradentes, you can't get any closer to the railway station than this pousada. It is also close to the center of this rather interesting city. A quiet place unless there is a late night wedding reception next door. More
