“O.K. if all you need is clean, safe and centraly located "sleeping" base”
Reviewed 18 October 2007

First - a statement: when we travel abroad and our goal is to tour a place - we usually look for a nice, clean room with an ensuite bathroom. We take into consideration that we will actually use the room only for sleeping after a busy day. We prefer to spend our money in good food, museums, theatre tickets etc. For this purposes Meson del Rosario is O.K. We stayed there for 2 nights, got a room in the upper floor which was decently sized and clean. We had a window so there was no problem with light though no view. Yes the towels were thin but smelled o.k. The front desk stuff were very nice and helpful though fortunately - we speak Spanish. We did notice that they have problems with English. The beds were hard however but did not bother us. We paid around 49 USD per nights. We booked the hotel basing on the recommendation in the Lonely Planet which rated it as a "Mid Range" Hotel I am not sure that this is the right category. More like "Upgraded Budget". Nevertheless - O.K. for the money and purpose.

Meson del Rosario is smack dab in the middle of the action in Guanajuato, adjoining a major thoroughfare. The Lonely Plant describes the hotel as having a "medieval feel" and this was true in both the best and worse sense of the word. We had a back corner room that didn't let in any light at all. It was a decent price (around $58), but the room was so small, with two small double beds crammed in, that you hardly had room to move. It had a musty smell as well. I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt in so far as we may have had bad luck to get one of their smaller rooms.

Okay hotel for a young, unpretentious 20'something couple or a group of young friends. Quiet, clean enough, but the beds are rock-hard. Still, I would go back for the price.

After staying at La Casa de los Espiritus Alegres (beautiful Bed & Breakfast in the Marfil area of town, THE BEST PLACE WE HAVE EVER STAYED AT) our first 2 nights in Guanajuato we looked for something closer to "el Centro Historico" when we stumbled upon Meson del Rosario. The lobby looked nice and kind of charming. Then we saw their prices and decided it was a great deal (a little bit less than $50 per night/double occupancy- we paid for the first night ahead of time). When we entered the room it seemed spacious and apparently clean. The first thing my husband and I noticed was the strong smoke smell combined with something else we couldn't quite point out. They have a very small tv (13 inch) on top of a very tall closet and they had no remote control available. Then the bathroom had only 2 bath towels no washcloths, no handtowels and no mat. Only one roll of toilet paper. My husband went to wash his hands and smelled the towels and told me not to even touch the towels because they smelled fithy (even though they looked clean) He said the odor impregnated on the towels was so disgusting (they smelled like body fluid). The sheets were so thin (like gauze). We were so uncomfortable that that same night we went looking for another place. We found a room at Hotel Luna (right in the heart of Jardin Union, great hotel, wonderful service AND CLEAN!!!) but was not going to be available till 1pm t he next day. We ended up staying the night but we couldn't get out fast enough of that place the next morning. I guess that if you don't care about little details like these, you could like this place. In appearance we did, but our experience ruined part of an otherwise perfect trip. I strongly recommend you spend a little bit more money and stay somewhere else. It will be worth it.

I have stayed here twice while studying Spanish at the Instituto Miguel Cervantes(highly recommended and inexpensive if study a language). This hotel is definitely central to all that is Guanajuato. Behind it is the childhood home of Diego Rivera, now a museum and must see. The architecture very old and wonderful, the rooms VERY nice for the price.
I payed 35 dollars a night both times, and for two people it is 45 dollars. MAKE SURE TO GET A ROOM AWAY FROM THE UNDERGROUND STREET, as these are very noisy. If this is too expensive or there is no vacancy, or the only rooms are streetside, the Hostel Canta Rana is very charming and even less expensive. It has an incredible view from the rooftop! It is not in the center of all the activity, but only a few blocks away.

While visiting in Mexico City family there decided on a whim to take us to Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende for some colonial sightseeing.
. . . these two towns took my breathe away. . . . Upon arriving and as we looked for somewhere to have lunch we stumbled on Hotel Mission del Rosario, the rooms are quite large, very clean, just a romantic flare to the place, reasonable in price and best of all central to everything from restaurants to shopping and to that famous little street "Calle del Beso" we were very pleased and intend on vacationing directly in Guanajuato next year to catch the sights we missed
