Where to stay in Sao Joao del Rei

Hotels in Sao Joao del Rei tend to be relatively small-scale affairs, and most midsize hotels inhabit old colonial buildings in and around the historical town center. You'll also find a range of bed and breakfasts, which range from multiroom complexes to family-run joints renting out their extra rooms. Smaller, more basic accommodations usually offer lower prices in exchange for fewer amenities. For an experience that combines family-run hospitality with the region's colonial history, consider staying at a "pousada"; these small hotels generally offer the chance to stay within a historical mansion or ranch, and offer plenty of amenities for a decent price. Most accommodations populate the blocks surrounding the city's main canal, within walking distance of the town's old bridges.
