Flor is the manager, not the owner, of Casita de las Flores. She is an incredible woman. She makes every effort to ensure that the guests have everything they want, information, insight, support if it is needed to get something done, and a welcoming attitude.
The Casita is five rooms all facing on a lush garden with a terrific hammock for relaxing. The bathrooms are shared but spotless, and in my three weeks I never experienced a line up. The kitchen has everything you could want to put together a snack or a big dinner.
Other guests are friendly, and one of the advantages of sharing resources is that the guests do have opportunities to say hello. The Casita is a great choice for people who like to meet people when they travel.
The Casita is extremely well located. It is a 20 minute, interesting, walk to the Jardine, but if you are in a rush, or tired, there are buses right outside the door for five pesos. Raise an arm and hail them to stop, and they will. All around are interesting places to eat and shop, and Flor's special map makes finding them an easy matter. There is an internet cafe right outside the gate, but wifi in the Casita works well if you bring your own laptop. There is also a shop for simple foodstuffs.
I would never think of staying at any different place than Casita de las Flores on any future trip to San Miguel de Allende.
