Great hotel. They do classical/period colonial-era furnishing and decor wonderfully, without seeming quaint or haphazardly thrown together, with modern touches that blend in well (like a fantastic jacuzzi tub in their suites). The staff speaks limited English, but that really wasn't much of a problem. We were able to check-in, get our car parked, order room service, etc. without too much sign-language. The location is perfect, right next to a beautiful church, and a short (5-10 min) walk to the center of town and Tiradentes Square along a very pleasant street situated on a ridge with commanding views of the town. I would not hesitate to stay here again; Ouro Preto is a fantastic destination and this is probably the nicest hotel there.

I very much enjoyed staying at the Pousado do Arcanjo. The property is attractive and has a lot of nice traditional touches. The staff was friendly and willing to fight through their imperfect English (and my worse Portuguese). My room was large, as was the bathroom. The mini-bar was stocked with some interesting local items. WiFi worked great. The bed and bedding were a little dated, but not a problem. I liked the location of the hotel, an easy walk from the bus station--and importantly in Ouro Preto--with little change in elevation if you are carrying your bag. The hotel offers a complimentary van to the bus station or town center, but I never used it. The walk to the center takes about 15 minutes and is downhill. (The uphill walk back wasn't too taxing, I found, although Ouro Preto has some VERY steep climbs and descents). Breakfast at the hotel was great. My favorite thing about the hotel is the complimentary afternoon tea, served from 5 pm to 7 pm, replete with tasty cakes and snacks. A nice break before dinner after a long day of touring up and down the local hillsides.

It is a nice clean Brazilian version of the Super 8 Hotels. The staff were very helpful and spoke good English. The continental breakfast was fresh and excellent. The adjoining rooms were very convenient.
There are no restaurants or stores nearby but there are some food items for sale inside the hotel. The challenge is that the goods were greatly overpriced.
