Location: They feature a 5-10 min walk to the Centro, even tho, that's not acurrate, you need at least 20 min to get there, but buses go around the property quite often so you can catch them and so as cabs. The location for itself it is not bad, it looks a secure area, yet, during the night we didn't... More

This is just our opinion - the trip advisor blogs state the walk from Casa Carly to the Jardin is a 7-10 minute walk....running perhaps but not walking. We found it to be between 20 and 30 minutes without stopping to browse and at a fast pace. A perfect establishment amongst trees and gardens, very quite and comfortable. We were... More

Wifi was inconsistent in my room but great just outside my window on the patio. Large room...old TV but good reception...paint is chipping off some of the rooms interior... More

We traveled to the State of Michoacán Mexico, over the Christmas holidays, to visit the sanctuaries where the Monarch Butterflies migrate to each year. After flying into Morelia, we rented a car and drove to San Miguel de Allende. There we spent a most unforgettable night at Casa Carly and rang in the New Year in front of the Cathedral... More

We stayed in Casa Carly last December. We rented two "casitas". It's on a main road but it's very private. The whole atmosphere is very lovely and each casita has it's own charm. After a long day in town, coming back to this cozy apartments was very nice. Both casitas were very spacious and nicely decorated. We liked it so... More

Casa Carly was a great find. We were staying in Guanajuato and decided to take the bus to San Miguel for the night. Casa Carly fit the bill. It is an easy walk into the historic centre, but very private. I found a great rate for the hotel and Carly and all are wonderful hosts. If you get the studio... More

I was in San Miguel from April 22 - May 3 with a group of 21 students from Canada. It was a great place for the group: Very convenient to El Centro, buses went by frequently, cabs were very easy to hail from just outside the door. A very easy walk as well. The neighbourhood is a very traditional one... More

The chilaquiles were excellent and good quality and taste. Finally we forgot some clothes in the laundry nearby and they helped us getting it and sending it back to the U.S. I dont... More

Casa Carly was comfortable, cozy, clean and very friendly. Conveniently located within walking distance of the main jardin.....this is a quiet and beautiful hotel. Meet San Miguel de Allende visitors from all over the world, take advantage of the fabulous breakfast restaurant---on site---Cafe Yenatu---and immerse yourself in all that Mexico's "number one city to visit" has to offer you.

I have stayed at Casa Carly myself and with groups I've led to San Miguel, probably about 6 weeks in past 9 years. The place is beautiful and well-kept and each time I go, there are new additions. The rooms are comfortable and well-decorated. There is a small restaurant that serves excellent food prepared by a local cook, just the... More

The casitas can be set up in a way that accommodates singles, couples, families, student groups or a bunch of singles! Thanks again for writing a review, we love having your college... More
