Each room is named after a poet, hence the name of the hotel. This is indicative of the unique style of the hotel. The interior is beautiful, brightly coloured with lovely tiles and details and a great view from the rooftop. It is in a great location, it's central but not noisy. It has many levels so we requested a room on one of the lower floors so as not to climb hundreds of stairs. The staff were happy to accommodate this request. There are loads of passageways and staircases so some of the rooms have a lot of steps but the website tells you how many stairs you need to climb for each room! The only problem was that our room was at times a little noisy with the sound of guests and staff in the passageway.

From the outside it doesn't look like a big flashy hotel, but at the moment you get in its awesomeness overwhelms you in so many ways; as I like to call it: "The wow effect"

First of all, the rooms! all of the are different and really good decorated according to the author/writer of the room. Going through all the rooms you can find great spots from a nice stairway to a cool patio where they serve the included breakfast, which by the way is delicious and totally worth it! it includes something for every tastes from the healthy cereal to traditional "chilaquiles".

On the other hand, all the staff is pretty nice and helpful. they even suggest a lot of cool thing to go see or where to it or even special tours throughout the city.

Besides the awesome decoration and service, I would say that the best feature is the location!!! You have everything on walking distance but "far" enough from all the noise that some people might not like when sleeping.

Basically you can forget about using you car within the city, but you can leave it safe in the parking lot that the hotel offers as an extra service.

-Amazing interior and courtyard. As you drive by the front entrance does not do it justice. It is not until you go inside, see the courtyard and various passage ways that you can truly appreciate the hotel. Almost a microcosm of Guanajuato and how it's laid out.
-Great price, location, accommodations and hotel staff!
-Parking is not on hotel grounds, but is o.k. since you won't need a car in the town and really don't want to drive around in it.

Room Tip: -no elevators so if you aren't in to walking or would have much luggage pick one on lower floor...

I just stayed for one night in this beautiful hotel. I stayed with my family in a two bedroom suite. It had a very nice bathroom, free coffee and a charming interior design. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is very good...in the city centre, but still quiet. So it's the perfect place to discover the small streets of Guanajuato.

We had a wedding at the Meson de los Poetas. Overall the wedding was great and so was our stay in the hotel. We had about 7 rooms for out of town guests. This hotel is very charming, it's a maze of stairs and hallways which is just like Guanajuato. The service from everyone at the hotel was great, they were very accommodating of all requests. My only room complaint is that in a couple rooms the water took a long time to get hot. The breakfast was good, the entrees changed daily. It was nice to sit in the patio and enjoy breakfast, even though it's a covered area it has an outside feel because of the high ceilings and tree growing through the hotel.
The location of this hotel is perfect for exploring the town. You can walk everywhere, and are just steps away from Plaza de la Paz and Jardin de la Union. They also have a terrace at the top of the hotel which was a nice place to sit and enjoy the view.

Room Tip: There are a couple of rooms (i think mainly suites) that face the street, these can be noisy, althou...

This is a very beautiful hotel with an outstanding service. The double room I stayed in had free coffee and tea, a very nice bathroom with good amenities and charming furniture. All the staff was friendly and helpful. The location is ideal, very close to the market, to Diego Rivera's house and to some of the most beautiful churches of Guanajuato. Internet worked fine and breakfast was delicious... a lovely time

Don't be fooled by the exterior!........El Meson de Los Poetas is a gem of a hotel in a great location. The creators have used some beautiful touches in putting together this architecturally spectacular property. Beautiful patios, elegant furnishings, friendly and helpful staff together with a great location and affordable prices make this hotel well worth checking out. The only downside, for some folks, is that there are no elevators and getting to some of the rooms may leave you breathless - so to speak! There can be anywhere from 20 to 60 steps to climb depending upon which floor you are on - you might want to check that out first. Apart from that little hiccup - a truly delightful hotel!

Room Tip: Check which floor you are on and how many stairs to it. Suites Walt Whitman and Jose Marti (200C and...
