Rather than spend 6 hours waiting for my flight, I took a taxi from the airport to explore the lovely city of Guanajuato. I stopped at the beautiful El Meson de los Poetas and asked them to call a taxi to go back to the airport. Not speaking Spanish, I was delighted to find out that Victor the bellman grew... More

Cute hotel. Very clean and very quiet, walking distance to plaza de la Paz. Weekend price $75 a night via Expedia. Breakfast stop right across the street was great and dinner at the tavern de diego y frida next door was also very good. Only issue, lots of stairs to get to room from lobby.

El Meson de los Poetas is centrally located within walking distance of all of the major attractions in Guanajato. The hotel is located in a historic building that has been fairly well maintained. We booked a King sized bedroom and while the room was perfectly adequate unfortunately it only had one window in the shower and another window in the... More

This was a perfect location for walking almost anywhere in the old city- but hard to find, even for our taxi driver. Not even a parking spot to unload suitcases from the car! No elevators and plenty of stairs, as the hotel is built into the mountainside. Bell boys carried our suitcases. Our room was spacious, colorful and very clean.... More

good little central hotel, near everything, with great breakfast. Unfortunately no elevator and there is a lot of climbing to get to the rooms so don't come here if you have difficulties climbing. We asked for ground floor and got forth floor. No ice machine and no fridge.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Great hotel, and reasonably priced (with breakfast included). Stay on the top floor (room 403 I think), which felt like a cabana on the room. Large rooms, with nice flatscreen TV and A/C. If you have issues walking a lot of stairs, not recommended. Also, they will charge for 1 night at check-in if you... More

Very clean and comfortable hotel, with friendly staff. Just a short walk to most of the major sites in Guanajuato, the location is excellent. I don't recall any noise problems that other reviewers mentioned. The coffee shop right next door makes an excellent espresso!

Hotel was about 5 blocks from main square once we got our bearings in the city. Excellent service from staff. All very helpful and willing to attend to our needs. Breakfast was not included in our rate (surprise!) but could have been for $120 pesos. Since we are mostly vegan, this was not a choice for us. We ate quite... More
