Excellent location: 5-minute walk from bus terminal, but still feels secluded in a jungle-like setting that overlooks the central Praça Tiradentes, which is just a 10-minute walk away. Friendly: The owner and his staff were very welcoming, gregarious, helpful, knowledgeable. Clean: Clean room, clean bathroom, clean grounds, clean kitchen. Spacious. Airy. Good feng shui. Bohemian vibe. Big buffet breakfast: coffee,...

Green and tranquil place, awesome in every detail! 2 buildings in a garden full of trees and flowers. Beds comfortable, showers clean and warm, kitchen user-friendly. Location close to bus terminal, close to the town centre but not in its heart. Staff freindly, e.g. they let me used their computer when I couldn't catch wifi on mine (computer fault, not...

We stayed here for three nights mid week in Autumn and almost had the place to ourselves. We were arriving and leaving Ouro Preto by bus fully laden with big backpacks. The bus station is up high above town but luckily so is this place. Following hostel signs and instructions from the Lonely Planet we were there in less than...

This pousada is located close to the bus station. There are signs so it's very easy to get there, no need to ask anyone or take a taxi. It's also within a walking distance to the city center. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming. They give good directions about the places worth visiting. I liked the international atmosphere as...

Our group of 8 (4 adults, 4 teenagers) spent 5 nights at Pousada Sao Francisco de Paula and would happily return for 5 more! Maria, Vinicio and the rest of the staff were very accommodating, helpful, flexible and friendly. The breakfast was delicious, the grounds were rustic and peaceful and the views are just tremendous. Though not right in the...

This is an amazing place in a fantastic setting in a beautiful garden within a wood next to the botanical gardens 5 minutes from the bus station and about 10 to 15 minutes from town. Clean rooms and facilities and excellent breakfasts. Rooms facing the view can be a bit noisy at weekends.

The room was nice with a nice view. Everything was clean. We stayed in one of the upper rooms beside the kitchen. The staff was cozy and nice. The breakfast was very poor. No cheese, ham or egg. The bed was TERRIBLE!!!! The madras was very thin and so the bed was like a rock. The price was very reasonable.

I have spent one night in the dorm room. The bunk beds were great, but the sheets smelled a bit musty. The shared toilet and showers were very small. But even though this pousada was a cozy place to stay with a beautiful view of the town. The staff was very friendly for a chat and kept my valuables safe...

I rang ahead of our arrival to reserve a room and got a very cordial response from the owner to confirm our reservation in broken Spanish as he didn't speak English and my Portuguese was poor. When we arrived at 7am, the owner was lovely. He invited us to have breakfast, and gave us a choice of rooms. The smaller...
