Fodor's Expert Review Pousada do Mondego
Largo de Coimbra 38, Ouro Preto, Minas Gerais, 35400–000, Brazil Fodor's Choice
This intimate hotel in a 1747 merchant's mansion has period furnishings, gorgeous veranda and dining room (where an exceptional mineiran breakfast is served), and one-hour city tours given in a 1930s minibus. It sits next to the Igreja de São Francisco de Assis and opposite the soapstone market. Mondego is part of a Brazil boutique hotel network, so expect the same modern conveniences you'd get at a high-class hotel.
- good mix of modern amenities (marble bathrooms, TVs) and 18th-century charm
- guests may hear late-night noise in the holiday season
