The Pousada do Mondego is located on an attractive square near the St Francis of Assisi Church in the historic mining town of Ouro Preto and oozes historical charm.
The hotel is an elegantly converted mansion with just 24 rooms spread over three antique furniture and painting-filled floors. The best bets are the suites and deluxe rooms which overlook an attractive square and the town beyond, and have beamed ceilings, hardwood floors and four-poster beds.
There is a bar serving light snacks and drinks, and a library where guests can relax in the evenings after exploring the town, and good restaurants are plentiful in the surrounding area.
Why we love it
The Pousada has developed a reputation for serving excellent breakfasts with fresh fruits and pastries.
