Great little place a few blocks from the main square. Different-sized rooms, at different levels. Decent price. No restaurant , though. It's a converted family home. Steep walk up to this place, though. Not for physically-challenged. Easy going down to the square but tough to return after getting your drink on.

We stayed in a two-bedroom suite with a sitting area as well for three nights. The hotel is close to everything, and we were able to enjoy this great city. We were not impressed by the breakfast, so we went out instead. Apart from the breakfast, everything was good.

We stayed here on our journey through Mexico for one night only and we were happy! Very authentic and clean. We originally thought that we were staying in the main house but then we were told to follow the owner to another house, we were happily surprised! Had kitchen, lounge and dining area and great views from the terrace! Very... More

We chose to stay in the hotel part above the restaurant. The room was very attractive and comfortable. Ours (Azul) had an ensuite while our friends had their own bathroom that was across the hall from the bedroom. We had the rooftop terrace to ourselves and enjoyed the impressive views and sunsets. Pablo and Aaron were very helpful. The location... More

I stayed at this hotel on two occasions during the annual Cervantino festival and this hotel is my favorite in Guanajuato. The hotel has several buildings around Plaza Mexiamora were they offer different rooms; some of them have a kitchen and some have terraces with a beautiful view over Guanajuato. Plaza Mexicamora is a beautiful, tranquil plaza, but still in... More

I spent three weeks in a suite in this complex while studying Spanish at Escuela Mexicana. It was my third visit to Guanajuato and this was the best accommodation. The manager Pablo picked me up and drove me back to the airport being very punctual both times. I stayed at a room in a building at the far end of... More

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
