Stayed here for a long weekend and was very pleased. Beautiful hotel, especially the several-story open dining room. Perfect location right in the center of town, one block from the University. Very helpful staff. Because of the structure of the building, there is some interior noise at night but not too late. And yes, there are stairs, but also willing... More

A charming, unique place, a bit like staying in a medieval castle, which fits in quite nicely with the charm of this unique and enchanting city. The staff is quite helpful--they even brought a refrigerator to our room when I requested one--not many places would do that! Be prepared to walk up steps (here again, reflecting the city itself). Beds... More

My trip to Guanajuato was spectacular in every way and of course the hotel Meson poetas was a great choice not only for the location, but for the attention of the staff and the warmth of the place, my rest was very comforting. If you are thinking to go there, do not hesitate to have a good choice of accommodations... More

We find this hotel thanks to TripAdv and we really appreciated the reviews. We stayed here only for one night but it worth it. The hotel is really conserved and charming, the rooms are big and spacious, even if the rooms are weirdly ordered you'll love walking the stairs. The location is just great, it is in the center of...

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
