The good: Don Bruno is a very pretty place with zig-zag stairs and beautiful landscaping. Wifi was good. Plenty of warm blankets and a fireplace in some rooms; coffee service and good toiletries. The food at the attached hotel was good and plentiful each day, with plenty of options and good coffee. Not good: I don't mind hard beds, but some in our group said they couldn't sleep. Only one space heater to a room, which is too much if you get a really small room, and not nearly enough if your room is cavernous like ours--a converted bar with rock-like walls to imitate the inside of a copper mine, and no insulation between the ceiling of the bathroom and its corrugated plastic roof. The lighting was inadequate (this didn't matter much to us since we were up and out early and too tired at night to want to read.) If you get a room near the restaurant and stairs, you might be kept awake by other guests who want to sit outside and celebrate. There are sidewalks, so you can walk into the historical town.

This is a remote mountain town and not heavily touristed, so don't expect over-the-top luxury. The grounds are lovely - much nicer than the rooms, which are very basic. Small beds that are very hard. Some people like that. Not me. We were the only guests in the hotel and they had to open the restaurant just for us. The food was just average, but also just about the only option in town. Service is friendly enough. You're staying here to see Monarch butterflies, so don't set standards too high. Keep going down the mountain to Ocampo for better options.

This place is close to the Monarch Reserves, so convenience is a big factor in staying here. We travel a lot and stay in all kinds of different hotels/lodges etc all over the world. When we arrived, staff was very friendly and took nice care of us. The first room we were assigned to had a terrible smell that was way too much. They moved us quickly to another room - same smell, but not nearly as bad. Paper thin walls - I woke up at 2 am when the travelers next door got a phone call - and heard every single word of the call that lasted 30 minutes. Door only had a push-button lock on the handle - the latch above was broken off - push button worked fine, but did not feel great about that. FREEZING cold (late Feb.) in this room since there was no heat and no fireplace - we moved all the blankets from the second bed to the one we slept in. The bed was really really really firm. Shower door would not stay closed on its own. Mold in all the cracks & crevices in the bathroom - bathroom light was terrible - toilet kept running and running on its own. I will say - dinner and breakfast were served buffet style and were both really good. Nice little bar too. We were really glad this was just for one night. If we could avoid it, we would not return.

First off all, the hotel was clean and the three people who appeared to be running the place were friendly and very very helpful. The morning coffee is fantastic and Marta at the restaurant was very accommodating. It was ideally located for both the Rosario monarch reserve and Chinque monarch reserve. The beds were comfortable and sheets were crisp and new. On the flip side, it was cold. I had three warm covers on the bed and slept well but the floors and the rooms were cold. There really isn’t a lobby so hanging out at the hotel to read after the days exploring is uncomfortable. We ended up sitting in the restaurant much of the evenings.

This was a good place to stay while visiting the monarch sanctuaries. The hotel is clean, the grounds are beautiful, the beer is cold and the food was delicious. It IS cold at night during the winter and there is no heat. However, there are 3 heavy wool blankets on the bed, add long johns, wool socks and fleece and we had no trouble with sleeping through the night. Brush up on your Spanish. There is Wi-Fi but it only worked for me in the restaurant. Showers are quick since you are not guaranteed hot water. Try their hot chocolate, it was fabulous!
