“Location - pros and cons”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2012

We were in Guanajuato over a public hotel and the town was booked out, so this was more or less the only room left in town. On the plus side, the hotel is set high above the town so you get fabulous views over the old town. Guanajuato was heaving when we were there and the centre of town would have been noisy - up on the hill it was quiet.
However, the downside is that you are not in the centre of town. You can use the funicular to get down which is about 10 minutes walk away. Unfortunately, it seems to close pretty early (we went to get it back up at around 9.15pm one evening and it was shut.) The other option is to walk down one of the pedestrian lanes that run down the hill - this is worth doing - you get the views and the lanes are picturesque. If you do that it's a 25 - 30 minute walk into the centre of town, but all through interesting lanes and streets, so no hardship. And actually, it's not as bad as you think walking back UP the hill - honestly!
The other downside of the location is that although the hotel provides breakfast (OK) there is no hotel restaurant in the evening and nothing much else close by, so it's a trip into town to eat.
Apart from the views, the hotel itself is pretty average. Although our room had had a coat of paint recently, the whole atmosphere was slightly run down and dejected. And there was a plastic sheet under the sheet on the bed - it was clean but, really, just a bit nasty for grownups!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2007

On the spur of the moment, we (2 couples) decided to go to Guanajuato without having done any real research. Since it was Christmas vacation, we let a travel agent book us into this hotel. After a major fit by my husband, we wound up with 2 decent rooms instead of 2 dank rooms at the bottom of the hotel (4 flights down). The hotel is on the top of Guanajuato with fabulous views but a very long walk down to the town although taxis are plentiful and quite inexpensive. Not a location that you can easily drop in and out of. It was also the coldest place on our trip and there was no heat in the rooms at night. Luckily there were two beds, so we took the blankets from both beds to keep warm. There was a nice pool in the courtyard which would have been a delight at a warmer time. Considering the amount of effort that we put into finding a hotel, we could have done much worse. At least the price was reasonable and the hotel was clean.

  • Liked — The view and the quiet during the night
  • Disliked — The room temperature
