This the third time we have stayed here. we get two rooms which means you get the guest house which has a full kitchen, dining and living rooms, plus excellent terraces with terrific views. Like many places in Guanajuato, it can be noisy at night since the streets are very narrow and stone. As a result, people walking down the... More

This is the second time I have stayed at the hotel. Again it was fabulous, especially for the money. My wife and I stayed in Perros Muertos building across the plaza from the main hotel. The building had a full kitchen and dining room that we used and there was a gorgeous shared terrace with a view of the city... More

Great little place a few blocks from the main square. Different-sized rooms, at different levels. Decent price. No restaurant , though. It's a converted family home. Steep walk up to this place, though. Not for physically-challenged. Easy going down to the square but tough to return after getting your drink on.

We stayed in a two-bedroom suite with a sitting area as well for three nights. The hotel is close to everything, and we were able to enjoy this great city. We were not impressed by the breakfast, so we went out instead. Apart from the breakfast, everything was good.

We stayed here on our journey through Mexico for one night only and we were happy! Very authentic and clean. We originally thought that we were staying in the main house but then we were told to follow the owner to another house, we were happily surprised! Had kitchen, lounge and dining area and great views from the terrace! Very... More

We chose to stay in the hotel part above the restaurant. The room was very attractive and comfortable. Ours (Azul) had an ensuite while our friends had their own bathroom that was across the hall from the bedroom. We had the rooftop terrace to ourselves and enjoyed the impressive views and sunsets. Pablo and Aaron were very helpful. The location... More

I stayed at this hotel on two occasions during the annual Cervantino festival and this hotel is my favorite in Guanajuato. The hotel has several buildings around Plaza Mexiamora were they offer different rooms; some of them have a kitchen and some have terraces with a beautiful view over Guanajuato. Plaza Mexicamora is a beautiful, tranquil plaza, but still in... More

I spent three weeks in a suite in this complex while studying Spanish at Escuela Mexicana. It was my third visit to Guanajuato and this was the best accommodation.

You can choose to stay in hotel or apartment. We opted for the hotel which is located down the street across a courtyard because we were told that the hotel rooms on the top floors have the best views and indeed it did! We were not disappointed!

Good location, in a reasonably quiet, but still very central place (you need to climb some stairs). I was staying one of the additional buildings accross the plaza (private room with bathroom, shared kitchen, living room, terrace with amazing view), where I felt like home: the design was lovely, the service friendly and helpful, the wifi coverage good.
