“Beautiful building, good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

We stayed a couple of nights in this place, it is magic, the service is excellent and the building is worth of a visit specially at night. Very good option to stay in Guanajuat, By far our favourite City of our trip, we will come back to enjoy more of it and of course we will stay again in this Hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for one with the view to the city or the couryard, at night it is a bautiful view

Not too far from the Bus Station and not too far from the Center of Guanajuato, nice rooms, clean, friendly staff. From mexico city is arround 4.5 hrs by bus so if you want to enjoy your trip go to Central del Norte bus station and take the 7 am bus.

Room Tip: Taxis in Guanajuato are very cheap, dont forget to visit the mummies museum. If you are going in Oc...

Implecably maintained in a quiet area of town. You could walk to downtown (downhill) in 20 or 30 minutes, and catch a cab back to the hotel for some 40 pesos. The rooms are smallish but nice. All the employees were courteous and helpful. We did not eat ther, but the restaurant looks nice. A very good base to explore the gorgeous city of guanajuato.

My family and I were here for one Saturday night and were pleased with our stay.

PRICE: On the phone, a friendly (English speaking) receptionist told us the room would be 1800 MXN a night, which included two double beds for four people. We were pleasently SURPRISED however, when upon payment of the room, the rate was unexpectedly lowered to 1200 MXN. We didn´t ask any questions, but were happy with the adjustment! Our price also included 2 full buffet breakfasts as well.

POOL/BAR: As Canadians, we love our drinks and recreation, and the setup at the hotel was great. The pool was spacious and had a little jacuzzi spa as well. There was a really nice (and high) waterslide that kids slid down everyone minute or so. It was tastefully decorated with a nice rock mountain on one side. It then started to rain, but that didnt ´dampen´our stay. My parents and I were playing cards at one of the tables by the pool, and the wonderfully attentive staff member (Juan) helped us move our table and possessions to under the poolbar roof. He spoke good English and was attentive and quite helpful in recommending an oustanding restaurant in town (Casa Valades). Prices were cheap for drinks (30P a beer and 50p Sangria) Order it with vodka - its wonderful.

ROOM SERVICE: Room service was great, and took half an hour ( a little long) to get to our room, HOWEVER, we ordered at 3 in the morning. Order the hamburger, its well priced and delicious.

CLEANLINESS: Immaculate.

MAINTENANCE: Everything worked as expected. The showers were awesome and had lots of pressure and hot water.

TECHNOLOGY: Wireless was free. All you have to do is call front desk for the code. Only one code per room though, so if you have two iPads, only one will have access.

The only concern i would recommend would be the location to the city center. Its a 15 min cab ride and if traffic is bad you can just about double the time. However, they do have cabs readily available.

Overall, a wonderful experience at this hotel, Book this hotel if youre in need of some R and R in a beautiful city.

Room Tip: Choose the first floor, it had a nice balcony and is easily accessible.

We chose this hotel because it is one o the few that have a swimming pool in Guanajuato, and with kids, the pool is a must. I knew the hotel when was "Parador San Javier" and some that charm is lost for ever. The hotel is build inside an old Hacienda, it is still appreciated from the outside, however none of it is left to be seen or feel inside of the Hotel, wich is a pity. Other than that, excellent service and accommodations, perhaps the only issue with us is that both mattress in our room where old or overused and gave us uncomfortable nights.

Hi,
I was in the hotel a complete week, from Tuesday to Tuesday with my brother. I get it through www.hoteles.com and I get a good price I guess, $7,000 MXN for the entire week. maybe the main issue, is that to go to the center (like the "Teatro Juárez", need to take a walk of approximate 15 to 20 minutes (that depend on ever persons' speed). And the Hotel is in the Hight, I mean, that if you came from the center, you need to walk Up, and is some heavy, we take taxi because we tired, or sometimes we didn't want to walk, and because we been late :P

The service was gentile, they get my luggage to the room. 
The room was really nice, with a safe for free on the room and in the lobby (but I only used the safe on the room), the service clean the room every single day, from the beds, to the bathroom, they change the towels too, of course has a mini bar, but I didn't take anything. 

The TV isn't a HDTV, is a CTR TV with plain screen (at least on the room that I stay). The channels, well, they have Canal 2 & Canal 5 (Televisa), Canal 7 & Canal 13 (TV Azteca), also Sony, Fox, CNN & Nick (don't remember all, but mainly them, don't have Warner.

It have also hooks for hanging clothes and also have table to iron clothes. 
The Internet service is wireless, but they only give you ONE free account, if you want another, you have to pay $50 MXN (Mexican Pesos), and you have to go to the lobby to change them every two days, and beware, because they didn't remember that you pay for the another account, and in my case, almost I have to pay again. I use it to Skype with video chat wit our parents, and the connection was really good (sorry, but I really forget to do it a speed test). For YouTube, sometimes get really, but really slow.

They have a pool and a gym (I didn't use any of both, could, but didn't).
The Hotel have restaurant, but we never eat there.

Also, the same Hotel have the info and the relations with the Company for Tours (Grupo RYO San Cristobal was the tours company that I use), like the tour "Ruta de Independencia" (go to Dolores Hidalgo Cuna de la Independencia Nacional, Atotonilco and San Miguel de Allende), the tour across Guanajuato (Guanajuato's Mommies, Valenciana, Mines, Typical Candies, Jewelry made by hand, the tunnels, and the statue of "El Pipila"). The other tour is the "Cerro del Cubilete" (here go the Cristo Rey statue, and to the a dinner on a local little restaurant, the food is good, but not from another world :P ). And the BEST OF ALL, "Las Callejonadas", THEY'RE THE BEST!!!
For the 4 tours, I pay approximate $1,000 MXN (Mexican Pesos) in total for my brother and me (not $1,000 for each of us, $1,000 for the both).

If you want to get a service to go to the Airport of "El Bajío", the Hotel have the service too, for $500 MXN (Mexican Pesos).

At the last day, we have some little freeze that bought at the OXXO, also a pizza box, and when we go to take it to the trash, the service personnel really fast to take it to trash.
We down to the lobby with the luggage, made the checkout, the girl ask us if we take something from the mini bar, but we didn't, so we tell her that, and that's it, simply. The service personnel but help us to get it to the taxi (to go to the Airport).

In general, I really like the Hotel.
I hope that this review can help you, and good trip :)

Located at a very nice place of Guanajuato it's colonial arquitecture it is not what usually a hotel would look like.

The rooms are quite comfortable to rest, but a little small, specially the bathroom.
