Just returning from Brazil, we found Pousada Mondego one of the most disappointing hotel we stayed at. The service was very average and the rooms were lower quality than expected. Frommers had mentioned that only the rooms with windows were nice...and Man was that true! We could barely stand up in ours; to see the view you had to crawl under the roof, the bathroom was oldish. Mondego is a "Charm" hotel...but our room had none.
Truly wish we'd gone for something located a bit further away from the center...but with a nicer staff and better accomodation.

Stayed: July 2008

This is a delightful hotel in the centre of a remarkably interesting and well-preserved town. It is beautifully furnished and decorated with some very good paintings. The staff and management, are friendly and helpful and the breakfasts are excellent. We had chosen a deluxe room that had a splendid view. But it was also on a busy road that was noisy well into the night--indeed the nightwatchman in the open-air market across the street played his radio loudly in the middle of the night.
If you go to Ouro Preto--and it is a world-class destination by anybody's standards--take a day trip to Mariana, an even less-spoilt former colonial town. Preferably go by the train--but there are frequent and convenient buses.

It's a beautifully furnished hotel in the city centre. You can't have a better location. You need to make sure you are in the main building though. The rooms are small, be aware.

It would be hard to fault this place.Ouro Preto is an exquisite colonial town that has been very well preserved. Pousada Do Mondego is a cozy but elegant inn not far from Igreja Sao Francisco and overlooking a small market (selling mainly tourist souvenirs). The pousada is a converted colonial mansion with period furnishing and antiques. The service is excellent and the rooms comfortable and charming, although ours had a very low ceiling in places. They offer a really good breakfast.

The town's main square, Praca Triradantes is around the corner and there are a number of dining and drinking options within easy walking distance. A most enjoyable stay.

A point worth noting is that most of the churches and museums are closed on Mondays, so this is not a good day to visit.

We were investigating options for staying in the center of Ouro Preto Nov/Dec 2006, and Pousada Monego seemed like a good - if not a really cheap - option, so we booked for a couple of nights. Our expectations were pretty high.

When we arrived everything was at least as nice as advertised, if not more. Perfect, well organized check-in, got help immediately with our (heavy, for 4 weeks!) bags and were shown to our room.

The Pousada has a pretty long and diverse history. The historic building has been nicely maintained and converted into a high-quality hotel. Floors and stairs are highly polished wood and there is lots of rustic decoratins around, plus a small crafts shop.

Our room was nice, although not really huge, with a well-equipped (small) and clean bathroom, a simple but very nice (flat, hard! I like that!) double-bed and old wooden chests and drawers. Add a table, chairs, a refrigerator,...

From the terrace at the reception level you get a magnificent view of the crafts-market and many of the baroque churches. Actually, having one of those churches just a few meters away means a lot of noise :-)

Another thing to look forward to: the breakfast! Fresh fruits, sweet stuff, cereals, milk, juices, coffee, tea, and - freshly prepared bolinhos do queso.

A couple of things to consider: Our room was right under the roof, so there was a low beam which I briefly ignored a couple of times - ouch! It can be very wet, humid, foggy and chilly, this is in the mountains! The drawers in the chest were not moving easily, because the wood had absorbed a lot of humidity. Being located in the center and right opposite the crafts market (taxi stand, bus stop) doesn't make it an exteremly quiet place. And last but not least, bringing a few words of (spanish or) brasilian portugese is helpful! Not just for the pousada, but also for enjoying the city life.
