Location, Location, Location..This Hotel is located close to almost everything in Guanajunto. The Jardin de la Union, Teatro Juarez, University of Guanajuato, and the Diego Rivera Museum and Home as well as many other sites are within a 5-10 minute walk. In addition, it's location off the main streets make it a nice and quite location. The rooms, while quite... More

Great little hotel. Great location also, right in the heart of Guanajuato. ROOMS. I stayed in a 2 bedroom with small kitchenette. Although I didn't cook, it was very nicely equipped (except pots and pans which I believe they let you borrow). Very clean and with a small living room for resting and chatting after a long day walking those... More

It's a good hotel with an excellent view on the terrace of the roof. The room was clean and the service was great. If you need to park you car it will cost you extra and you will need to leave it 5 minutes walking trough a tunel.

I've been to Gto several times and stayed in different hotels, but this has been one of the best. First the hotel is huge on the inside, lots of rooms and floors, although very few have a nice view, some have very little windows, so ask for a balcony and a view. Also the walking distance from Plaza de La... More

Cute hotel with quaint rooms arranged amidst spiral staircases, narrow hallways and winding hallways. Richly colored modest rooms capture true Guanajuato charm. I found the hotel central to everything but a bit pricey.

If you don't like to walk stairs then this isn't your place. There are a lot of dark rooms below so choose a room upstairs toward the back of the hotel for better sunlight-the room we ended up staying in had a view outside of the town. There's a beautiful little sunny terrace above this room that we ended up... More

This was my first time in Guanajuato and I really did not know what to expect. Well, overwhelmed would be an understatement. It is such a beautiful city, tunnels, stairs, colours and history. On the recommendation of our tour guide Carlos Aguilar, we decided to stay at El Meson de los Poetas, right in the heart of Guanajuato. It was... More

A beautiful hotel, in a wonderfully restored building --apparently an ex-governor's residence that was joined with a student hostel in the back. Tasteful interiors in pastel colors, ironwork, sculptures and paintings remind one of the better Spanish boutique hotels. We stayed in one of the suites on the second floor, street front with spectacular view of Guanajuato town. Small but... More

A quirky hotel with many rooms on different levels. Best to have a top room near the terrace. Some rooms have kitchenettes but they have no facilities. Largish bedrooms but tiny bathrooms. Owing to the nature of Guanajuato and if you have a hire car it is absolutely impossible to park outside!

One word describes this place: unique!!! I would therefore recommend it for folks looking for something unique. Not for those with mobility problems. Not for those who desire room service, jacuzzis,smarmy waiters, etc.Not for those looking for a high-end luxury experience. But a great "mesón" (pousada in Portuguese) for a couple of nights. Reception is adorable. Breakfast for a few... More
