Good pousada and very good location ; they managed to put us in contact with Paulo MENDES a french guide from the tourist office and we had a private visit - all in French - with this very nice guy. If you visit Ouro Preto and it's worthwile we recommend PAULO MENDES.

This would be an average hotel except for it's great location in the centre of town and walking distance to everything. Rooms are comfortable but basic. We were in the rear but I can imagine the front to be very noisy in this lively town. Afternoon tea is a nice touch and appreciated. Staff were friendly and helpful

In the world of pousada´s this is an average place in a very noisy street. The location is indeed worth considering because walking around in Ouro Preto can be a challenge because of the steep streets. Classica is near the main square Tiradentes. The rooms are clean, you can open a window and there is a hotel-parking at the backside... More

This hotel lies in the middle of the old town, right next to the main square. An excellent place to start walks around the town from. The hotel rooms are very nice and the old feeling are always present without anything not working due to being old. The only thing (charming more than troublesome) is that the room windows actually... More

The Classica is an average pousada on the main street in Ouro Preto. The location is great, and whilst it is noisy on the front, we were warned in advance about this. Unfortunately my earplugs weren't sufficient to block out 15 minutes of church bells at 6am on a Saturday morning, however for a heavy sleeper it should be fine.... More

The location of this pousada was perfect for us. It was 30 seconds to Tiradentes square & lots of museams, churches, restaurants and shops right on the doorstep. The breakfast was great and the complimentary afternoon tea (tea, coffee, hot chocolate along with various breads and cakes) was a great touch from 5 to 7pm each night and perfect to... More

I loved this hotel. Great rooms, really clean and not too small - modern clean bathroom. The staff were great but better to try out your portuguese if you can. The icing on the cake was an early evening complimentary buffet with just beverages, cakes, and some pastries but PERFECT! when you return after a day out sightseeing.

Pousada Classica is in beautiful colonial building in the one of the main streets in Ouro Preto. Location is amazing, just next to Tiradentes square, within walking distance of everything in the town. It is very pleasant place - rooms are very nice and clean with "old school" furniture and feel. If you are worried for the street noise, just... More

We stayed 2 nights at Pousada Classica: The place is a bit tricky to find (the sign in the street is very small) but it is perfectly located in the most vibrant street of Ouro Preto and is 1mn walking from Tiradentes square.

This pousada provides excellent customer service and a great afternoon tea and traditional Brazilian breakfast. The rooms are very clean and the building is very historical.
