My husband and I recently stayed at Hotel Posada Carmina for a four-day trip to San Miguel de Allende. We found the hotel interior/decor lovely and charming, very 'San Miguel' and reasonably priced. Although the decor was attractive and complimentary breakfast very nice, it didn't quite make up for some other deficiencies in service and ammenities.
The hotel is 'conveniently' located near the town square (el jardin) which is great for proximity, but bad for noise control. Night clubs/bars surrounding hotels with blaring music at late hours don't make for very restful sleep.
The staff was very nice, but if you do not speak fluent spanish and have needs other than the VERY basic, expect difficulties with communication and getting any help with things like arrangement of transportation, ect...
For example, the hotel graciously offered to help arrange our transportation to the airport. We were very clear about our destination, yet we were transported to the wrong airport and were charged four times the amount the hotel had given us as the total cost.
We realize there will sometimes be issues with language barriers, but expected more from a hotel located in the 'center' of tourism of San Miguel, a city that relies so heavily on tourism for its existence.
