9.2.Superb.
  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Lovely, tucked away and private property. Very close to everything in town. The hosts Elizabeth and Fernando were helpful and friendly. Clean, comfortable room. One suggestion would be to add a bath mat in the bathroom as I slipped on water on the floor and had a fall. It is in the centre of town so there is some noise but overall we loved it. Will come back to this wonderful hidden gem.

    Verified Orbitz guest review

  • 8.0.Very good

    This is a very charming property, just 5 rooms or so, a very special atmosphere. It's well kept, and the rooms have nice private bathrooms. Fernando, the proprietor, is friendly and interested in arts and literature, and runs a lovely bookshop-cafe in the front room and courtyard. It's a superb location -- in central Guanajuato but on a quiet street. Just a couple of shortcomings. Because the rooms' windows open onto the Zaguan (the covered courtyard-patio-cafe) rather than to the outside, you are likely to keep the curtains pulled closed. Though there are lots of restaurants nearby, there is no coffee available onsite until the cafe opens at around 10:30 a.m. Our room also lacked a chair and reading light.

    loved the place. Is a small boutique hotel with only five rooms. Super quiet at night and management is friendly and helpful. location is perfect, close to everything but away from noise. There is no parking but a public parking is close by and Guanajuato is NOT a drivable town by any means. Walking is best and rarely you will need a car.

    Excelente opción.

    Todo muy bien, solamente que había que caminar con las maletas hacia el estacionamiento. Pero todo bien todo cerca y accesible. El cuarto no cuenta con clima pero por el precio vale la pena. Muy acogedor y seguro
