From the first email to arrival, check in and the entire stay this is one of the best hotel experiences I've ever had in any part of the world at any star rating. Anna, your hostess, understands exactly what makes a holiday special. The rooms were stunning, immaculately cleaned every day, comfy beds, perfect location to explore Guanajuato and made... More

From the moment we were greeted by the hotel staff at reception, ushered to our fabulous, quiet rooms, we were treated like royalty. I would never consider staying anywhere else in Guanajuato and will never forget The kindness, helpfulness and joyful spirit of everyone working at Anigua Vapor. Perfect location, easy walking to everything but away from the noise and... More

I made my reservation by calling the hotel directly. It may take some time for the staff to find someone to speak English. But between my Spanish and their English I was able to book a room successfully. The hotel requires the first night as a deposit, which they charge to your credit card upon making your reservation. This can... More

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
