Hotel Posada de las Monjas
Reviewed 24 June 2011

The place is actually very pretty but the rooms are definitely "Franciscan" style - bare necessity.

Being in the summer and facing west, the rooms were quite hot to be in when we checked-in in the afternoon. However the rooms didn't get to cool off until way past midnight. So be prepared for the heat.

The location is good because it was a short stroll to the town square. The town is really pretty. The houses were all painted in earth-tones that they look picturesque.

The other up-sides of the hotel are free WIFI in the lobby and ample of parking.

If I do more people will want to use it and then where will I go? I spent a month there while attending Language school and I loved it. The staff were great breakfast was good dinners okay ... Quite the place used to be an old nunnery so it has the old world charm folks look for, middle class Mexicans love the place and it is heavily booked on holidays.... I enjoyed staying there.

Monjas is my favorite place to stay in SMA. The balcony views are to die for and parking is within the gates. Rooms are plain but immaculate. Rates are reasonable and owners are friendly. Location is perfect.

Stayed 4 nights at 500 pesos ($38) rate. Very good location just two blocks from el jardin. Extremely safe, free parking in hotel grounds. Large room with great viewe, double bed, desk, sofa (mauve vinyl) and chair. Hotel has several patios and nice flowers & plants. Bathroom was spacious and tiled.

Hotel owner is grandson of original developer and very helpful; however, uses his grandfather's adding machine and probably hasn't updated much else of the hotel.

Beautiful dining room with marvellous views; however, menu was too boring to try - club sandwiches, hamburgers, chicken enchiladas. But they kindly sold me coffee to-go in the mornings. Never found the advertised Bar.

During our stay, hotel extremely quiet during the week but business picked up Friday/Saturday with Mexican guests.

Overall, a very good stay at this price point but that mauve vinyl sofa needs to go!

Very interesting rambling old convent building. Cheap and great if you're young and just need a place to crash after shopping and partying. Otherwise my single room with nasty carpeting was a bit of a dismal cell with poor lighting and ventilation. Plus, I swear I could hear my neighbors brush their teeth... No frills here, just a cheap place to flop.

The hotel sprawls (in a good way) across several courtyards and multiple levels, making it a fun and pretty place to explore! It's situated in a nice part of town with lots of funky shops and restaurants nearby.

On arrival we found our room booking was slightly wrong for the group but due to the large number of rooms on the property this was not an issue and we were even given a choice of other rooms to pick from. Although not all the staff spoke English they were all very friendly and helpful so this was not the issue it could have been.

Rooms all functional but clean with stunning views from the roof terrace if you are lucky enough to have a room up there.
Parking is available on site within a gated courtyard.

In the morning the staff bring out caged birds into the courtyard to help wake you up gently with their song.

Breakfast was available (at extra cost), but we didn't try this as there are so many wonderful cafes nearby.

This was a very low cost option, within 5 minutes' walk from the center of San Miguel. It was comfortable and clean; not luxurious but great value. I contacted the hotel by filling out a 'reservation' form on its website. This does not hold or guarantee the room but they had space for me. Breakfast was worth missing and cost $60 pesos extra. The view from the room over the lower lands, looking west, was very good for the sunset.
