Where to stay in Mariana

Many of the most convenient places to stay in Mariana lie within a walkable distance of one of the city's main squares, the Praca Tancredo Neves. A surprising array of accommodation options cluster in the town core, from family-run bed and breakfasts and shared houses to more upscale, resort-style hotels complete with swimming pools. Keep an eye out for "pousadas," independently-owned guesthouses or lodges, often within a historical mansion or residential building. Alternatively, nearby Ouro Preto features a larger array of accommodations, though you'll need to bus or drive into Mariana.
