Beyond common traveller experience

Hotel Pousada do Arcanjo is located in a quiet and tranquil street of local traffic at the entrance to the Historic Center. A step out of the hustle and bustle of the main central streets. A neighborhood of small homes where people live side by side.

The location is ideal for those who want to go beyond the standard attractions that enchant common travellers and to experience as well a bit in the way of everyday life and environment of city locals.

In the vicinity of the hotel, the visitor reminds some of the bucolic life of yesteryear. One goes back to sense the peaceful way of life of grandparents and great grandparents. And who knows, even his own when as a child.

Guests can wake up in the morning and hear the soft singing of the birds that live in the adjacent green areas and fly over the property.


With all this tranquility, the hotel is located only 900m from Tiradentes Plaza and 400m from the Bus Terminal, in a street that corners the main entrance roadway to town named after one of the most important revolutionary "inconfidentes", Padre Rolim. A true haven for the modern traveler-inconfidentes.

Complimentary transportation

Only 2 to 3 minutes by car and 15-20 minutes walk, on a leveled course, leave the visitor in the main city plaza. Along with having available the comfort and convenience of courtesy transportation in hotel vehicles. Patrons of Arcanjo hotel have no need to worry about driving their own cars through the narrow streets of the one-time colonial town, nor searching for rare parking spaces.


History as well

The vicinity of the hotel also bears history: the house where lived the young "gaucho" Getulio Vargas, Brazil's future president, a high school student when in his 13 years of age. Later, as president in 1933, Getulio Vargas signed the Presidential Decree that turned Ouro Preto in a National Monument City. In the 1940s, he ordered the repatriation of the remains of the revolutionary inconfidentes that were exiled in former Portuguese colonies in Africa in the eighteenth century, so inaugurating the Inconfidencia Museum, where they rest today in the Pantheon of the Inconfidentes.
