You can choose to stay in hotel or apartment. We opted for the hotel which is located down the street across a courtyard because we were told that the hotel rooms on the top floors have the best views and indeed it did! We were not disappointed! Beautiful cultural charms decorate the interior. Top floors on the hotel have their... More

Good location, in a reasonably quiet, but still very central place (you need to climb some stairs). I was staying one of the additional buildings accross the plaza (private room with bathroom, shared kitchen, living room, terrace with amazing view), where I felt like home: the design was lovely, the service friendly and helpful, the wifi coverage good. Their coffee... More

This inn is small and utterly charming; every detail of decor and furnishing a delight. The location is perfect, if you're willing to do a little climbing in this mountain town. It's far enough from the central plaza to be quiet, yet only 2 minutes away. Comfortable, excellent food, and the staff was superb! Pablo, the manager, picked us up... More

El Zopilote is a charming, colorfully decorated and quite new hotel. We loved the great sleeping conditions and the Olive and Almond amenities. The breakfast was tasty and the whole ambiance very cozy in general. The owner and staff were very friendly and accommodating giving us room choices even though we arrived on a Sunday evening after booking the rooms... More

We booked two rooms and found the hotel to be quite charming and colorful. The rooms were clean but the bathroom for one was not part of the room and the other room had a bathroom that was not entirely private. However, the bathrooms were modern and clean. If you're tall get a bed without a foot board as the... More

We spent two nights in one of El Zopilote Mojado's apartments. It was a sweet place, a couple of minutes walk from the centre of town, but wonderfully quiet. The apartment was very clean and came with a small, but well-equipped kitchen. The staff at El Zopilote were extremely friendly and helpful.

Hotel is on a pedestrian walkway and small plaza, 1 to 3 blocks, from the main plaza/park, 2 theaters, 3 churches, Don Quixote museum, and many cafe's and restaurants. You have to walk up at least one block up medium hill to hotel for check-in. We stayed in separate apartment from hotel that had living room, bed room, bathroom, dining... More

We loved everything about this hotel. Quiet, comfortable, beautiful furnishings, helpful and friendly staff, great breakfast (separate charge), reasonable price. If you arrive by bus, you'll need to take a taxi or city bus to the center of Guantajuato. Our taxi driver didn't know where Mexiamora Square is. The closest familiar drop-off point is the Teatro Principal.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at El Zopilote Mojado in late December. We stayed a total of four nights in one of the rooms at the top of the building and, as a result enjoyed a great view of the city. Our friends stayed in one of the apartments, which was equally nice, though with not as much of a... More

It was a little slice of heaven to stay in El Zopilote Mojado during our three-day stay in Guanajuato. The hotel is located behind the Teatro Principal, up some steps and across the Plaza Mexiamora, within easy walking distance of all the attractions in the centro histórico. We stayed in the Los Embajadores room in the Perros Muertos building, a... More
