Beautiful hotel close to the train station
Opinión escrita el 21 de Decembre de 2016
Very nice small hotel in an ancient building close to the train station. Rooms and showers are a little bit small but clean and well maintained. Felt wery well attended and the breakfast is excellent. Very practical close to the train station and inside the centre of the old town
Great location, next to train station

The pousada is by the train station but a good 20min walk from the main bus station, though you can take a 5min local bus for R$2 single.
The rooms are fairly small, run down and strangely decorated with weived ceiling panels and with windows opening into the room providing a view of the wall of the adjacent building with each with it's own train themed painting.
The toilet/Shower was incredibly tiny and we are not fat people.
The friendly staff were eager to help (apart from the breakfast lady who was not happy when I told her the cheese and ham needed replenishing). Breakfast is adequate (not abundant) as described in lonely planets 2008. Only good value if you can haggle down the price as we did over the phone with the help of a portugese speaker.
Would recommend if you have an early bus to catch out of town. ALL buses outside the train station towards the Rodavaria will stop outside the Rodavaria. very convenient with backpacks.
The town has some nice churches, especially at night. But it is not easy to find good places to eat. Several of those in lonely planets had shut, but we found a small newly opened Italian ('Delivery Galdino' Located on the the left just as you turn off Av Eduardo Magalhaes on Rue Aureliano Mourao) full of local people where we enjoyed an excellent meal. The chef speaks good Engish and was very friendly.
Further along at the junction of Av Tiradentes, are 2 restaurant bars which became very crowded from 2030h.
The square in front of Igreja de Sao Francisco de Assis has some drinking holes and eateries.
Av Tiradentes after 2100h was full of young people enjoying a Sat night out. Girls smartly dressed; boys not so.
A great treat at the weekends is Smoking Mary an old steam train which runs between Sao Joao del Rei and the very pretty old gold mining town of Tiradentes. We took the bus to Tiradentes at $ 2:80 for half an hour ride from the rodavaria. Saw two pretty squares and two churches (the magnificant Matriz De Santo Antonio & Igreja Ns Rosario Dos Pretos which was built in the nights by slaves for the slaves), but did not take the horse drawn carriage as the streets are cobbled and bumpy. The horses were badly kept and smelt bad.
Plenty of time to wander the shops with good textiles and a glass of beer before catching the 5pm train back to SSdR. $25 for single ticket- half price for over 60s. (CASH only) About 40mins.
The scenery along the train journey is not as pretty as that between Mariana and Ouro Preto for the same price. The guide book recommends sitting on right coming back from Tiradentes.
This lovely Pousada is as close as possible to the railway station.

A beautiful place to spend a few nights. Old fashioned with modern touches. Antique furniture. Gorgeous foot wide hardwood planks on the floors. Woven bamboo mats on the ceilings. Freshly varnished wooden shutters with interesting strret scenes painted on the walls outside the windows. Nice staff, as English is spoken. Cafe de manha is taken in the grotto-like basement restaurant. Paying cash up front gets a small discount. If you are in Sao Joao to ride the Maria Fumaca to Tiradentes, you can't get any closer to the railway station than this pousada. It is also close to the center of this rather interesting city. A quiet place unless there is a late night wedding reception next door.
Arrependido Pousada estação do trem
Opinión escrita el 22 de Novembre de 2020
Fiquei hospedado na pousada estação do trem incentivado por algumas avaliações que vi, na chegada i atendimento foi simpático e educado para los funcionários, porém minha experiência nao foi das melhores.
O quarto tem uma janela que dá para uma parede a cerca de um metro de distância, um pequeno ventilador doméstico sobre um móvel, um banheiro pequeno (detalhe, havia no banheiro um rolo de papel higiênico dos mais baratos com menos da metade) dentro do box revestimentos com pequenos quebrados.
No café da manhã servido entre 08:00 e 10:00hs cheguei por volta das 9:00, nao havia pão disponível e tive wue ir pedir a reposição, os talheres se limitavam a facas apenas, não haviam a disposição garfos e colheres.
Não voltaremos a noa hospedar lá, falham em coisas básicas como um papel higiênico de minima qualidade, um ventilador decente no quarto e atenção à reposição no café da manhã.

Pousada fica bem localizada, dá pra fazer todo o centro historico a pé , pode esquecer do carro. Pousada fica em frente a estação de Trem, onde vc pode pegar a Maria Fumaça pra Tiradentes, além de ter uma simpática feirinha de artesanato e museu. Café da manhã muito bom e sempre disponível um cafezinho com bolo a tarde. Único ponto a destacar não tão bom é a acessibilidade, a pousada tem escadas e não recomendo pra idosos ou pessoas com problemas de locomoção. Estacionamento fora da pousada. Devido ao prédio ser tombado o isolamento acústico deixa a desejar mas eles informam isso na pousada.
