The hotel was good, nice location, good facilities but very old furniture. The lady at the reception upon arrival was very polite, but the guy at the reception at 5am upon check-out was cranky and kinda rude.
I had a short one-night stay at the Royal Golden Hotel, but I enjoyed it very much. My room was very large and comfortable. The bed and bedding were new. A/C was excellent. WiFi was fast. Minibar well stocked. Best of all: a great shower with excellent water pressure and lots of hot water--best shower I had in Brazil. The bathroom was otherwise small--strange given how large the room was, but the shower more than made up for it. I liked the location too, a few blocks away from the main square in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood. Nice stay. Would definitely return.

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.
Our family of four (with two pre-teens) stayed here for nearly a week. Hotel facilities were generally clean and safe, but some areas needed maintenance. For example, the handle in our bathroom shower kept falling off, and our room door was hard to close. Nonetheless, the beds were clean and comfortable, and the staff did their best to be responsive to our requests. They were very friendly and helpful, in both English and Portuguese! The all-you-can-eat breakfast in the morning offered much variety, including more than 10 different kinds of breads and fresh fruits. All in all, we would stay here again.
