It's located right below the main square plaza @ San Miguel. This is good because you could see that beautiful cathedral when you open the windoe, this is bad because you get all the noise and chaos that happens every night and day in San Miguel. The hotel is quite old and the rooms are big but not that cozy... More

Thank you for your comments unfortunately the downside of being steps from all the happenings in san miguel is the eventual mariachis and festivities that are out of control of the hotel, we are glad you enjoyed your overall experience at the portal and we look forward to your next visit.

However, I later received an email saying that my reservation had been canceled, and when I checked again, there were no more rooms remaining. I called the hotel, and they told me that they canceled my reservation... More

The location of this hotel was perfect if you want to be right in the middle of San Miguel de Allende. A 300 year ol building on the side of the central Jardin (park), with the famous Parroquia beside it as well as a museum and shops. If you don't like church bells, don't stay here. If you can't climb... More

Wow - walk out the door and you are at the square! We were doing a bit of shopping so it was just great to be able to head back to the room with no inconvenience. We had three rooms - all were different and each was perfectly comfortable. There are large windows for light although our room looked down... More

No frills spot in a great location. The place is in a grand old building, which is great, but the interior design, linens, etc., were basic. Our room had a small window, which it turns out was better than most.

We travelled from Austraia to San Miguel De Allende for a wedding with our 4 month old son. The hotel was in an amazing location in SMDA. RIght in the heart of this place. The hotel faces onto the town square where the main and large church is located. It's not as noisy as you'd expect for its location... mariachi... More

I rarely find myself needing to write negative reviews here... pretty easy going. But, the rooms at Del Portal (we had two rooms amongst our group) are dark and stuffy. My room had one window that did not open and faced the front desk. There was no way to get fresh air or even see fresh air. The location in... More

Thank you for your comments we kindly ask our guests to understand one very particular situation about san miguel, the city was founded in 1542 therefore properties that are antique (like hotel del portal) are considered world heritage by the UNESCO therefore the structure cannot be modified in any way even though we do our best to make our guests...

A great location to discover san miguel. When you sneak up onto the rooftop you will realize that this could be converted into a fantastic spot, their rooms are not special and the place looks run down. Staff is great. Super helpful and they will make you feel at home. Good price, great location.
