My wife and I had drinks in the bar followed by a fabulous meal in the restaurant. The drinks were wonderful and the service spot on, the atmosphere in the bar was quite chic and the art scattered throughout the property kept us enthralled. The restaurant had amazing selection and the quality of the beef left nothing to be desired.... More

It is a lovely modern hotel, located very close to downtown San Miguel. The restaurant has an excellent Mexican menu. The SPA is marvelous. Walking distance to Main plaza in downtown. They have car parking for guests.

This boutique hotel is close to everything, yet far enough away for guests to enjoy tranquility! A wonderful staff, beautiful rooms, elegant spa, and a pool with infinity edge which overflows down the wall of the restaurant! A truly remarkable design. Even if you aren't staying there, you can enjoy all the amenities with a day pass! Not to be... More

Beautiful boutique hotel, lovely large room, great location, pricey. Very attentive staff, friendly, excellent service. Food was great, loved the fresh juice combinations - healthy & tasty, I had @ breakfast. Careful not to leave anything on the floor, when it rains, window/door leaked inside in our room.

My wife and I checked in for an extended week-end at this state-of-the-art boutique hotel recently. We definitely loved the great atmosphere, impecable service, quiet areas to relax and enjoy your time, and in particular the large, comfortable room, with all the amenities. The Spa was a particular bonus! We both took great massages (at reasonable prices). Breakfast is served... More

The wonderfull guest relations staff at the Rosewood Hotel in S Miguel de Allende recommended we tried the Moxi restaurant at Hotel Matilda, which, she claimed, was one of the best in Mexico. Our expectations were, thus, very high and we made this dinner the most sigbificant of our trip. The restaurant was very pretty and very comfortable. The lighting... More

We want to thank you for visiting Moxi at Hotel Matilda on your recent visit. While we’re pleased that you enjoyed the stylish ambience and design, we’re sorry that your evening was less than perfect. In fact, Moxi has received rave reviews for cuisine and service since it opened, so your experience was quite unusual. However, we value the input... More

The Matilda is very proud of its designer-chic appearance, but for us the room experience was not great. We were given room C8, right on the patio so that whenever we opened our door there were people literally on our doorstep, sitting in chairs, drinking, chatting, playing with children and dogs - so that we never felt any privacy.

At Matilda, we pride ourselves on providing not only a well-designed hotel, but also one that is comfortable and functionable. In fact, Travel + Leisure just named Hotel Matilda the best-designed boutique hotel in Mexico – an award we worked hard to deserve. That said, we also know our contemporary hotel is not for everyone. We sincerely regret that your... More

First, let me share our impressions of Hotel Matilda. We arrived on February 9th, after a long delayed flight experience... As our Van (from Leon Airport to San Miguel), pulled up to the hotel, we felt as though we were in a dream..
