This hotel is located a 15 minute walk to the center. You can take the bus in front of the hotel (1 Euro) or you can order a cab (5/6 euro) to the center. We had the presidential suite here, spacious, clean and quiet. The restaurant is a simple one, the pool is bit small. But a nice atmossphere. I would return there when i go back at Guanajuato.

On a car tour of the historic Bajio cities we decided to stay here in view of its 5 star status - what a mistake! The promised laundry service did not materialise and the restaurant was a joke.

This hotel and its staff need a complete makeover - easily the worst hotel we found in Mexico.

The tourist authorities of Guanajuato should intervene to ensure that hotels on offer meet certain standards!

  • Liked — Nothing!
  • Disliked — Everythin, especially the lack of a plug in the hand basin in the bathroom.

My family (myself, wife, and two young children) stayed in this hotel for five nights this past August. The room was nice and spacious, quiet, private, and with a nice view. Our kids loved the pool, which also had a little kiddie pool area for non-swimmers. As mentioned in other reviews it is a bit of a walk to the City center (maybe 20 minutes) but really kind of fun with lots of activity, street life etc. You don't have to walk through a tunnel to get to the center, but can veer right as you pass the frog statues and through an opening in the commenorative wall and then through a park, where on weekends they put out a trampoline for kids. Our main issue was that pushing a stroller on the narrow, crowded, and steep sidewalks was a bit challenging. There was also a nice park across the road from the hotel that was filled with lots of people jogging, kicking around a soccer ball, or just relaxing. After eating in the center we walked home after dark a couple times, but I don't think this is such a good idea. It didn't seem unsafe necessarily but it's pretty dark and crossing the busy road to get to the hotel was scary. But getting a taxi from downtown was cheap and easy. The hotel restaraunt isn't great, but fine if you are feeling like staying in. We thought it was nice to have the center as a destination to go to and nice to get away from the center when we wanted to just relax.

Being a bit further out of town there is room for the hotel to have parking and a pool, however the walk is a good 20 minutes into the centre of town. The walk was pleasant enough, and quite manageable for anyone with some minimal fitness. We all managed the hills, even the two kids (9 and 11). It also felt safe, even later at night.

The pool was great for the kids (mine don’t mind freezing water in winter). However in the rooms, the walls were paper thin, so you could hear all the comings and goings of anyone in the next room, and we had very noisy neighbours. Didn’t find the staff very friendly, but they did the job.

  • Liked — Pool for the children

Based on reviews from this site, we booked 2 nights at this property, and enjoyed our stay (July 18-20, 2007). We thought we would need air-conditioning, but found the weather to be pleasant during the day, and a little cool in the evenings. This hotel is basic in some ways, but very nice in others. There is a lively family atmosphere which we enjoyed, and also enjoyed having a pool in Guanajuato--we had stayed in a hotel right on the Jardin on our last visit. This is one of those hotels with a matttress on a board, so be prepared. We had a master suite--huge living room, huge bedroom, and large dressing room/closet/bath--as an upgrade for the $139/night price quoted for a junior suite. Alas, the lighting was so poor, we never did use the living room, and were tempted to move into the bath area when reading! The pool area is very nice, with plenty of seating and covered areas for dining, etc. Highly recommend comida and lounging after a hectic morning in the main town! Friendly service, with lots of English speakers. Good water pressure in the shower and plenty of hot water.

The hotel is located about a 10-minute walk from the main historic part of the city. Because of this it is much quieter than hotels in the center. It is next to a pleasant park with lots of interesting activity going on, and the walk is also pleasant. The rooms are large
and attractive, but very dark, with no comfortable chairs. My
"single" room had two queen and one twin beds, which left little space for anything else. The bathroom and shower are large with plenty of hot water. The restaurant is satisfactory, but not spectacular. There are several public sitting rooms on the ground floor, and there is an elevator. I recommend it because of its location.
