The hotel is in the perfect location for San Miguel,walking distance to all the attractions and markets and restaurants. The rooms are comfortable, we had a room with a terrace that over looked the gardens and main church Of San Miguel. Wherever you go in San Miguel there will be noise, traffic if you Are on the street side, or... More

The Hotel Villa Rivera is located just behind the beautiful Parroquia church in the very center of San Miguel de Allende. For us, it was a perfect situation. My husband had a sore foot and needed to rest a lot, so he was able to enjoy just sitting in the garden area near the pool with a good book to... More

This hotel is just a block from the main plaza and Parroquia de San Miguel, which is a plus. The very bad part about it, though, is that you hear the very loud church bells several times a day and night. And no, that is not an exaggeration. The loud street traffic also is heard in the room. Another bad... More

Hotel Villa Rivera is an excellent choice when visiting San Miguel de Allende. It's close proximity to the Plaza Principal is an added bonus. Restaurants, shopping and people watchhing are just three of the activities that can be enjoyed in this quaint colonial town. A couple of caveats, bring comfrotable walking shoes, streets are steep and paved with cobblestones. Also,... More

Hotel Villa Rivera is in a very nice location just a few blocks from the center of town. The room we were given was very nice and spacious. This is why i gave it 2 stars :-) The service was subpar. The hotel advertises breakfast as part of the stay however this only includes coffee and bread and/or fruit. Not... More

Villa Rivera Hotel is a jewel. My girlfriend and I really enjoyed the Balcony Room, which opens up on the quaint cobblestone street. What an amazing place to relax! The bathrooms were great (I think the shower head would be illegal in the U.S. given how much water it puts out, but it's extremely enjoyable to take a shower in!).... More

The hotel has a great location! Just a couple blocks from the center... The prices are great, make sure to ask, as the ones they show or advertise are not the ones they charge, they are much cheaper! The bad is if you get the balcony room, which is the one with the best view of town, you will have... More

We stayed in the room above the reception area with double queen beds and a balcony. The beds were very comfortable and the decor was beautiful. There was plenty of room for us to spread out. Great location near the zocala. The poblano soup was tasty. Somewhat noisy in the evening but few distractions after 2300.

The Villa Rivera has its own charms. The receptionists are casual and enthusiastic. The staff absolutely correct. The garden and pool are gorgeous. There are many twists and turns to get to the 10 very individual guestrooms. In the photos of the hotel you'll see a room with a tree--that was ours! The tree was open to the air but... More
