We had a spacious room. I would recommend against the most basic type of room as it feels very claustrophobic. Overall the hotel is quite pleasant. We have not used the spa or pools, but they looked nice. The breakfast is a weak point. They have an abysmal selection for b'fast included in the room rate, they also have an... More

Nothing, truly NOTHING can be improved at Villa Maria Cristina. Charming, beautiful, & service with aplomb and a smile; every detail is attended to by staff to insure pleasing images. Brass (all Baldwin) is gleaming and latches securely. Service and dishes well presented on German porcelain and excellent.. This is not a madeinchina property!!

As others have said, the hotel is at the edge of town and is a long walk from the city center. It is a beautiful property with a wonderful staff. Everyone here is friendly and anxious to make one's stay enjoyable. Meals were excellent, and the hotel's manager could not have been more helpful.

This is an outstanding option in Guanajuato. The hotel is small, clean, tasteful and beautiful. The maintenance is superb as well. Rooms are very well equipped, with nice size and amenities. The highlight: The restaurant is really really good. Location is 5 - 10 minutes from city center, therefore it's peaceful and relaxing. Nevertheless, it´s not walking distance from nice... More

Fantastic experience of quality, service, gastronomy, relaxation. Rooms are hugely spacious, comfortable, with huge bathrooms, all to make the stay a memorable experience. Restaurant provides excellent food, well prepared and presented, with good and attentive service. Michel, the manager is the nicest guy to work with. Name it and he'll find it. At 6,600 ft above sea level, running up... More

Room wasn't ready. TV went out 3 times. Air Conditioning didn't get below 79 degrees. Paper thin walls lead towards being awakened several times. Food was blah. Room was nice: good bed, nice bathroom with big shower. Also cleaned nicely. Large closet with safe and fridge. I recommend not getting a room on the patio level-too noisey.

Located just a few short minutes away from the crowds in Guanajuato, GTO, Mexico is this Gem of a hotel. It's picturesque architecture, impeccable service and grand accommodation make one feel as though they have stepped back in time and staying at a grand Hacienda. In addition you'll find a wonderful outdoor pool, jacuzzi, get free Wifi and a great... More

this place is unbelievably beautiful! The staff were super friendly and the amenities are fantastic. I really enjoyed the food and the bar right next door was convenient, highly suggest it, but get a room farther from the kitchen it can get a little loud.

While this is a lovely place, it strangely lacks soul. This is perhaps due to the less than stellar service. The front desk staff is pretty clueless, and this is particularly surprising since this property is a member of Relais & Chateaux. A simple request of bus schedules, resulted in a phone call to my room announcing that my driver... More
