Pousada Beco do Bispo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 19, 2011

This was the best pousada we stayed in during our trip to Minas Gerais.

The bed was amazing - big enough for three and really comfortable!

The pousada provided free wi-fi throughout. Breakfast was really nice, although if it had been warm fresh out of the oven if would have been even better!

The staff were friendly and helpful. The location was excellent, just a minutes walk from the main square. Free secure parking was included in the room rate.

The only minor criticism would have been that the water from the bathroom sink was really REALLY cold!! The shower was nice and warm however.

A tip - if you take food into the room make sure you secure it in the fridge, otherwise your room will attract ants.

"I stayed at this Pousada (hotel) for the entire month of May. The place is wonderful and well managed. The help is extremely friendly and is immaculate. They go out of their way to make you feel at home.

The breakfast is always ready and has plenty of choices.

The location is great... close to the center of town and there are plenty of restaurants nearby.

Try to speak some words in Portuguese (obrigado = "thankyou", boa noite = "good evening" , bom dia = "good morning") and they really appreciate the effort.

I plan on going back to Brazil and will request this hotel above all others... and I have stayed at other Pousadas (hotels) in the area."

A classy pousada in a quiet side street near Sao Francisco church. The rooms are immaculate and the service is efficient and helpful; the manageress Nitza speaks good English. Breakfast is plentiful and there is a small swimming pool. Sao Joao was a gold mining town in the 18th century and there are several beautiful baroque churches and scenic plazas to rival those of Ouro Preto. If there on a weekend, try the heritage railway "Smoking Mary" to the nearby town of Tiradentes; it's great fun for a day out.
