We loved Hotel Antiguo Vapor. Our room was spacious and the bathroom was charming. We were there 6 nights and had no complaints. The location is excellent and one of the best Guanajuato restaurants, Mestizo, is about half a block away. If you pay cash for your room, there's a discount. Our room overlooked the interior patio and we would... More

Hotel Antiguo Vapor was lovely in so many ways. The location is exceptional, right at the confluence of innumerable hidden plazas filled with a variety of restaurants and a block from the Alhondiga and Museo Casa Diego Rivera. The continental breakfasts were substantial, and you can order from the menu if you want something hot. The service is gracious, and... More

This hotel is just wonderful. The location is perfect, close enough to everything in the beautiful town of Guana Juato. Staff were so helpful, car park was brilliant, rooms were stunning and the views over the town were out of this world. Highly recommend. We wish we could have stayed longer. Only minor gripe was my brother and his wife... More

This hotel multilevel hotel is decorated beautifully with tile and art everywhere. The hotel itself, though small, is fun to explore, with "secret" winding staircases and unexpected views from open-air passages. It also has a great view from a patio/parking lot. It is located right in old Guanajuato, so you'll really get the feel of the historic town and be... More

The Antiguo Vapor is a beautiful, interesting hotel close to everything. The staff is very friendly and helpful. However, for the price, more than $150 US per night (in July) it should do a few things much better. First, the website does a poor job of both describing and showing pictures of the rooms. It was very hard to decide... More

We stayed three nights in the Tortolas room, accent on the first syllable please. The view of Guanajuato is quite breath taking when you first enter the room. The room is nice although it only has one queen sized bed. The bathroom is nice too but hot water takes a while to arrive. Housekeeping standards are high, staff friendly and... More

Our room was in the basement with no windows but it was large. There was no heat, but they gladly gave us a space heater. They were very accommodating. You do have to call the front desk if you don't feel the shower is hot enough, but they warned us before hand, Overall, great value for the money, and good... More

We stayed here with another couple. This hotel is walking distance to the Centro. If you are unsteady on your feet, I might recommend another hotel. We had to walk up and down a few flights of stairs to get to/from our room. Overall, this is a nice hotel.
