"Old building, very noisy surroundings "
Although location is ok, the installations are old (light in the bathroom didn't work). Very noisy surrounding which made sleeping time almost impossible. Bad election for a business trip. The personal is nice and collaborative.
Really a bad Hotel, bad Location, bad rooms, bad and too expensive Restaurant, bad drinks, Pool only open until 7 pm then this is part of the restaurant area and of the really poor Bar. The Windows makes notices the whole night. Dirty, Dirty, Dirty.
"Just for a week!!!"
I lived in Belo Horizonte for about 12 1/2 years. Since I left the city this was my third staying at Belo Horizonte Othon Palace Hotel. The hotel is an old hotel but it has a ver good accommodations and internet, excellent breakfast gourmet, great rates and the best view of the Municipal park and part of the city.
"Good and bad"
We stayed in this hotel twice in a week, before and after a short trip to Ouro Preto. As others mentioned, the view is fantastic. Location is good as you can walk to most of the tourist attractions (but you can also do that from Saavasi which is better at night in my opinion). The rooms are a big but a bit of a touch and go situation: we were assigned one room which looked horrible (e.g. stained carpets, etc), moved on request to another which looked better but had problems with the air conditioner, the safe and the window, before getting a better room (2402). The same happened when we came back from Ouro Preto but eventually we settled into a fine room (2409). The hotel itself could be greatly improved with a coat of fresh paint and a good clean up -or replacement- of all the carpets. I don't think this has been done since the hotel was built. Staff in general are attentive but some need better customer service training (e.g. Ms Sara).
"Fabulous view and location"
The hotel is located across the street from the Municipal Park. The view from the room was amazing, day and night. Walking distance to museums. Staff friendly, spoke English. Breakfast included, good selection. Room a bit run down and sparsely furnished, but comfortable bed, TV fine.
