“A Garden Runs Through It”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2011

I stumbled upon this oasis in this magnificent colonial town of Queretaro. I was taken by the garden that is surrounded by rooms. This boutique hotel is new and is owned and run by two brothers, Franco and Eduardo, who grew up here. Their mother is from Iowa, thus they speak perfect English and are most helpful in answering any questions.

The price is around $89 depending on the room. It is a very peaceful place to stay in a sometimes hectic city, yet you are only minutes from the gorgeous center with its museums and historic colonial architecture.

My favorite aspect is the marvelous breakfasts on the patio surrounded by the sounds of birds and bouganvilla.

I chose freshly squeezed orange juice, coffee, cereal, papaya, and hotcakes with honey, marmalade, and lechera, a sweet condiment.

This is the only place that I would stay in Queretaro even if I could afford a five star hotel, this is ranked with four stars, and even if I were traveling on a budget, I would splurge here.

An old family home with a heritage listing had been lovingly restored, and extended by local artisans.This boutique hotel is located in the historic centre of Queretaro,5-10 mi nutes walk from the Plazas where all the action is, but very quiet- except for the church bells and occasional fireworks. There are stores of all sorts and food at all levels nearby.
There is a a tranquil semi-tropical garden with fruit trees. The ground floor is wheel-chair friendly. It is an oasis in bustling Mexico. Oh, and apparently it has ghosts, but they are quite benign.
All the rooms have new bathrooms, and original artwork. There is a coffee maker and supplies in the room. The beds were very comfortable. The master suite, up a winding iron staircase, is large with a king bed and antique furniture. There are two ‘Junior suites’, bed-sitters which will soon have basic cooking facilities. .
Breakfast is included. It is taken in the gazebo, with fresh fruit, a choice of cereals, pastries, freshly squeezed juice and coffee, available till 11. They supply drinking water daily and on request. There is free internet access. The families we saw there seemed most comfortable. The owner, Eduardo, is bi-lingual, much-travelled, and has worked at a high level for international hotels. His dream was to create something, ‘beautiful, affordable and clean’ in his home city, and he has done it superbly. He has great plans for more improvements. It is not an international chain experience, more your dream of old Mexico come alive, with modern comforts.
The staff are friendly, honest and most helpful. Everything is spotless. Linen is good and changed daily. We had some dietary needs and they were happy to let us use their fridge and wash food. They quickly learned our preferences and would appear with them. When one of us was sick they were most solicitous. They don’t speak English but were eager to understand our few words of Spanish.

Eduardo is still negotiating for extra power to operate the air conditioning- in the meantime there are fans and heaters available. Mini-bars are still to come. He plans two more hotels, one high-end and one budget, with the same values.
My advice is to get there now before the prices inevitably rise. We stayed 9 nights and never wanted to leave, though it was a great base to enjoy the amazing street life of central Queretaro.

The hotel is in the heart of this historic city and is located on a busy, noisy street. But, once inside, it is very quiet and peaceful. The room was attractive and clean. The breakfast, served in the garden, was delicious with freshly squeezed orange juice and fresh fruit. The staff was friendly. I will stay here again and will recommend it to my friends.

We were sent here by a tour company and were pleasantly surprised by both the location and the actual place. It was pretty, set behind heavy wooden doors with a courtyard. The rooms are clean, new, and have all of the amenaties. Only complaints, slightly cold showers and really loud at night but because of those staying at the hotel. No street noise- just some loud guests. Overall, it is close to everything and a nice place to stay when in this lovely place.

We stayed 4 nights, the best thing is the hotel is in very good condition, clean and well located, close to everything. We had hot water in the shower but not very hot. Breakfast was ordinary, fruits, cereals, juice, coffee and pastries. Service practically inexistant. The receptionist was alsways watching TV and could not care less about anybody but if you asked something she was pleasant. Same for breakfast, everything was put on a counter and we just helped ourselves. The price was reasonable for a city like Queretaro.

The hotel is spotless, really clean and newly refurbished. It is in a prime location close to the town centre. Staff are very friendly and the continental breakfast is quite good.

The only bad thing we found was that it had cold showers. The water would warm up for a while but not last for more than 3-4 minutes. My in-laws stayed in another room and found the same problem, so we reckon it is hotel wide rather than a localized issue. Have quick showers if you're staying in this hotel. We felt that for the money we paid (50 pounds -- 950 mexican pesos) we should have had decent showers.

There is parking down the road included in the room price.
