We found genital hairs in all beds in all 3 rooms we booked. Meaning they don't wash the sheets. The tv signal is gross to say the least and the tv is microscopical. The rooms are dirty, the shower disgusting and it looks like someone gang raped teenagers in one of the showers. Take my advise and stay away.

It's a beautiful historic building in town center. But room without outside window. It's dark and stuffy. We add 1 night in Guanajuato city, but served hotel San Diego can not offer 1 more night. So we stay here before move to San Diego, which is much better

The location is great, but the staff are rude and the stole my credit card information and made purchases, its a good thing that my credit card notified me and they returned the charges. DONT STAY HERE UNLESS YOU WANT THE TO STEAL YOUR IDENTITY.

Its location is far enough from the cathedral, and close enough to walk there without getting winded. Its interiors are modest but comfortable and clean. The restaurant there is average, no wow factors, but if you order a fajita plate or arrachera plate, the portion of meat is much smaller and thinner than its american version.

I stayed here for 3 nights. My room the first night was on the third floor and was a small room (I had to climb over the bed to get to the dresser). Fortunately for the remaining nights, I had a suite on the second floor. Large king size bed. I didn't use the sitting room, though. Hotel is almost... More

I stayed here for a week on the recommendation of a friend, after checking out of a hotel in the 'burbs. Other than its location and friendly front desk staff, this hotel doesn't have much going for it. Strange, dark rooms, shabby, worn furniture. But the price was, I thought, fair, and the location was great.

We chose to stay here because of its central location. While its instalations are adecuate, there was a really strong smell permeating from the sink and shower hole. I spoke to some other guests and they had the same problem. It is obviously nothing knew as there were various air fresheners scattered around the room. As we had a room... More

You pay for the location. Everything else is mediocre at best. The building is interesting, but the rooms are a crap-shoot. I lucked out at a private one with a window in the back, so it was quiet. The city wins though, it's so magical, I didn't really care.

I stayed here for one night July 2014. The location is excellent, but it's not worth the $. I paid $75 for a room that was more like a true "hostel" room- more like $30 a night. The hotel is billed as historic, but it's really not that interesting. I think I could have walked 2 blocks and found something... More

We were two families traveling together, the location is great, very near the central plaza and just around the corner from Teatro Juárez. It has small areas like living rooms so we enjoyed being outside the room and chat or play for a while. There are many stairs so be careful if you are not used to it. Rooms can... More
