We stayed at this hotel 2 nights as part of a G Adventures tour to see the Monarch butterflies. It was probably the best hotel of the trip. We had a large room with 2 double beds, desk, table and 4 chairs and a large fireplace. The hotel is on the side of a hill and the grounds are landscaped... More

We were initially impressed that it was a beautiful garden courtyard and overall first impression. We had a reservation but were unable to pay with a credit card as the "system wasn't working" so had to use dollars and were given a very bad rate of exchange - $78 instead of $70 - we were a little short of pesos...

First, this place should be listed on the Angangueo page. We almost didn't find it until my friend noticed it on a site promoting the monarch butterflies. We knew in advance that it could be cold in the rooms, so we paid extra for a room with a fireplace. We had to climb the stairs to the fourth floor, but... More

There are about five other hotels/motels surrounding Hotel Don Bruno. This is by far the nicest and safest looking one. The hotel has a restaurant on site which is very convenient, although we didn't actually eat there. We instead walked up the street and found a nice little family owned restaurant with great value for what you pay. The room... More

This place was very underwhelming. We planned to stay at a different place, but it was recommended by the previous B&B owner we stayed with. The hotel and courtyard are well kept at first sight, however, we found our room to be freezing and there was no heating. Since we were the only guests at the hotel, there was no... More

Yes, the rooms can be cold, but we just got a room with a chimney, enjoyed the open fire and then went to sleep under some extra layers of blankets. The hotel is very very pretty with an amazing garden filled with clementine trees and cala lilies. The restaurant is wonderful, the staff sooooo sweet and attentive (if you don't... More

I would reccomend that people do not stay here. Rooms are very cold, the staff is unfriendly, it seems they don't want you to stay there, no hot water! you have to wait about an hour and you only get warm almost cold water. They also offer shuttle service to the butterflies sanctuary for a high price compared to others... More

We stayed here in Jan 2012. Similar to the other reviews I would reccomend that people do not stay here, We had no hot water, when I say no hot water nothing came out of the tap. the rooms smelt fusty and there was mould on the walls. The room had clearly not been cleaned to any standard for a... More

We arrived to find that the rooms were OK - slightly better than expected. The restuarant was closed and we were advised that ther were some places in the main square - supposedly a 5 minute walk - that would be open until 8pm. It took 20 minutes and nothing was open. Back to the Don Bruno where they made... More

Although the hotel itself is very nice it is also super expensive. We were the only guests for two nights, the kitchen remained closed, no coffee or service whatsoever. We tried to pay our bill and waited for 30 minutes while the lady clerk talked on the phone not even giving us eye contact or a simple "be right with... More
