My girlfriend and I stayed in room 106 for 2 nights at the Hostal Cantarranas on Feb 7-8, 2014. The receptionist kindly allowed me to park my motorcycle by the reception desk. It wasn't so easy to get inside so I was impressed that would allow me to do so. The location of the hotel is superb, very near the... More

This place is worth the money you pay. We stayed in a room which was really big and the bed was very comfortable. There was a beautiful view from the terrace. This hostel has a nice atmosphere and is located close to the city centre and a car park where you can leave your vehicle (included in the price). It... More

This unique hotel was recommended by a resident of San Miguel de Allende, a nearby town. It wasn't fancy and certainly not a 5 or even 4 star hotel, maybe not evern a 3. But if you are interested in clean, inexpensive, and near everything you want to see, then this is a great place. They even have a big... More

We arrived in Guanajuato with no idea where to stay and lucked on this gem...for only $450 pesos/night ($35 US/night). A lovely little old lady runs this small, bright hotel. There is free parking just to the right, past the little plaza (the owner will give you a pass to comp the cost). Our room was spacious and clean, with... More

This small hotel is clean and convenient just a few blocks from the city centre. I stayed in a ground floor room with two double beds. Charmingly furnished. Inexpensive. Somewhat in need of repair. The bathroom was adequate but hot water was a long time coming. Situated on the main floor, I found my night's sleep disrupted by city noises... More

Although the name is listed as "Hostal Cantarranas," this is a hotel, not a hostel. We got two rooms for five adults --- together they both turned out to be about 1300 pesos a night, and they were very nice and clean rooms. One of the rooms we reserved had a little kitchenette with a 4-burner stove, small fridge, table... More

The location is excellent - very close to a grocery store and a great bakery (hotel provides coffee in the morning in the lobby- just buy pastry from the panaderia next door- great way to start the day) The hotel is in a perfect location to walk everywhere. Bus stop a couple of blocks away. The room is very large,... More

The hotel is in a great location. But when I reserved the hotel a month prior to my stay they told me one price and once I got here they crancked up the price about 20 dollars more per night. After being here for a week I realized that I could have gotten a better place to stay at with... More

Hostal Cantarranas is a greal little place within easy reach of all the sights in Guanajuato. I can't speak for all the rooms, but mine was huge with a bed big enough for 3 or 4, sofa, armchair and a couple of side tables, and a small balcony (no view, but never mind). The furnishings aren't plush but the decor... More
