Cons: Nothing major. The location is about 25 minutes from downtown Tiradentes, which makes a somewhat long drive after dinner. There’s nothing close around the hotel, you need a car. The bedsheets were old and kept coming off the mattress - I complained and they were replaced quickly for good ones, so no trouble there :). Could have more of those round tables to seat outside close to the bedrooms, there’s only two and it was usually occupied early in the evening, that reduced our confort as we wanted to have some wine close to the room after baby slept...

8.3 Excellent
Pros: The building itself - lovely, old, colonial style, well-maintained with lots of pieces of memorabilia. The building is right next to the train station and very close to all other amenities. The staff were pleasant. The shower had good pressure. The breakfast buffet had an awful lot of options - really good, but surprising given how few guests there were.
Cons: There were no other guests in the pousada the day I arrived but I was allocated the room in the corner with a view of a brick wall - painted with a mural but nevertheless a brick wall. At first it seemed odd that I was placed there but it transpired that many of the rooms were being re-painted/re-decorated whilst I was there. There were 3 wifi networks available but none of them worked very well - I suspect because I was 'blocked into' a corner room!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff members were always very helpful. The property architecture and decoration really brings you back to colonial Brazil. Breakfast were the most typical from Minas Gerais with fresh juices, cakes and of course pao de quijo!

Cons: noise, small room,
5.0 Okay
Pros: I especially liked the location of this hotel which, as the name suggests, was right next to the train station and nearby the old section of the town. It was also close by a number of quite excellent restaurants. The breakfasts were very good and the rooms had all the facilities I expected.
Cons: The first night we were in a room that was right on the main street as there were no other rooms available. Consequently there was a lot of traffic noise. I asked to be moved and the next night we were in another room which should have been better but there was still a lot of traffic noise. This is not the fault of the hotel, but is the result of it being a noisy town on a weekend. In any case it didn't bother me as I slept with noise cancelling earplugs in my ears. While the people on the desk were as helpful as possible, none of them had more than very rudimentary English and yet there were plenty of English speakers in the hotel. It made communication quite difficult.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is located inside a century-old house and staying there feels really cosy. The location is very good, right in the city centre. The staff was absolutely lovely and the breakfast nice and tasty. Really good value for money. Would definitely stay there again!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location, service, breakfast, room, price. Everything.
7.0 Good
Pros: Proximity to the tourist train. The lady at reception the day we checked in was lovely, very helpful.
Cons: Our room was too small for two people. The wifi didn’t work in our room unless we stood next to the door. Breakfast was limited, mostly cake and cookies. Kitchen staff refused to fry an egg for us because there were scrambled eggs, though the warming oven which contained them was empty when the request was made. Eating area in basement smells of mold and mildew.
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: Free parking
Cons: Super super noisy room, felt like the street is going through the room. Sleeping impossible!! Breakfast also quite poor! Never ever again!
