“Nothing special”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Good location downtown, but that is about all this hotel has going for it. Over priced, rather tired looking rooms, expensive wifi and the food very average. The rooms all face on to the main road, so even on the 20th floor, it was very noisy day and night.

Othon is placed in Belo Horizonte downtown in front of Parque Municipal. The view is great, but the room presented an old carpet, the bathroom showed the age marks. Also, the hotel is noisy. Room service prices are high. And accessing internet is very, very expensive. In my opinion, free internet access has low cost for hotel and is very friendly and useful for guests, so every hotel should offer this free service.

On the other hand, breakfast is amazing and staff is very nice

Room Tip: higher floors should be less noisy

The hotel isn't fancy but the location and large-sized rooms are perfect for dropping your bags and seeing the city. It is next door to the awesome Sunday morning market and across the street from the municipal park. The front desk staff speak English and are very helpful. There is a complete breakfast buffet with something for everyone.

Room Tip: If you want a great view of the city, chose a room at the front. However, pick a higher floor as th...

They say Othon used to be the best hotel in town for many years, but, truth is, not everyone is lucky enough to age gracefully. The whole downtown area has gone decadent and it shows.
Lobby and rooms could use a redecoration, since the 80´s are long gone. Since they target conventions and business people, most guests won´t mind being removed from the hip areas of BH.
Although location and style are minuses, crew is efficient and food is quite good. Their breakfast is superb. Some rooms get a nice view of the park. On sundays, there´s a great crafts fair right by the hotel.
If you need to grab a bite, Benzadeus just close by is a great option.

I don't know if all the rooms are the same size, but mine was huge. The hotel is old. It's 70's style. It feels like you're in a James Bond movie. It's in front of Afonso Pena avenue and a beautiful city park. I loved the view. The breakfast was also good. If you're going to downtown Belo Horizonte, the location is perfect. There's just about everything within walking distance, including a mall ("Shopping Cidade"). The taxi from the Confins Airport costs about R$ 90.
