My family (including two teenagers) stayed at La Quinta de las Acacias for three days recently. The hotel staff is wonderful -- highly service-oriented, helpful, friendly, informative. The hotel itself is a quaint inn with about 10 rooms, beautifully restored and maintained, located about 10 minutes from "el centro". You can take a readily available and inexpensive taxi to/from the center. The rooms were lovely. The inn is located on a street with regular and noisy bus traffic, so avoid the three rooms (El Angel, La Abuela, and one other) that front on the street. The hotel has a wonderful little dining room that serves excellent and very reasonably priced meals (breakfast is included in the room rate). The breads and muffins are made in their own kitchen and were (muy rico) delicious as were all of the entrees we sampled. The hotel staff also serves as the dining room staff, and were terrific. The hotel staff arranged a bilingual tour guide (Elios) who was excellent. He has a SUV and picked us up at the Leon airport and spent two days showing us all the architectural, cultural and historic sites in Guanajuato, San Miguel de Allende, Dolores Hidalgo, etc. He is well-informed, flexible and was very fair in his fees. Our family recommends La Quinta de las Acacias -- and will return to this hotel and others in the Boutique Hotels of Mexico organization on our next trip to Mexico.

The quiet location of Quinta Las Acacias, overlooking the lake created by the city's main dam at the edge of the city, is still on the bus route, and very convenient to everything in Guanajuato via the very cheap, frequent buses. We found it very pleasant to walk into the center of town every day, then use the bus to return in the evening, since it is all uphill. The rooftop garden and jacuzzi give a fabulous view of the mountains which surround the city, and the nine rooms are each decorated in a "theme", and all are unique. We stayed in "La Abuela", which has two balconies and is furnished with beautiful antique French furniture. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating, even to the extent of rising an hour and a half earlier than the breakfast hour in order to prepare something for us before our 6:00 AM departure time. It is not inexpensive, but worth the price. The breakfast itself is almost worth the price of the visit!

This is truly an outstanding property. It's considered to be in a suburb of Guanajuato, and it is a bit of a walk into the center of town, but it's not unreasonably far, and the neighborhood is lovely.

Five of the suites are in the original, late 19th century house, and reflect the European taste popular at that time. They're beautifully decorated, but we opted for La Guelaguetza, one of the three Mexican suites built on terraces above the house. The decor is fantastic, from the carved furnishings and brightly painted walls to the fresh flowers and the hand-blown goblets in place of ordinary hotel glasses.

The staff were friendly and helpful, and our stay was truly delightful.

Having read previous reviews, even the ones that mentioned some problems with the hotel, were ignored at my own risk.

The hotel sits in a residential suburb of Guanajuato away from the noise of the Jardin in the Centro. I booked the reservation through the hotel’s website at www.quintalasacacias.com on a mastercard premium package which offered an upgrade, welcome cocktail and a flower arrangement and candles (did not really care about this) plus breakfast. Prior to check-in, I called the hotel to find out the status of the upgrade and was told that we would probably obtain it. Upon arrival, this was not the case. I insisted on this only to be challenged by Ana Perez, the Manager, on the veracity of my claim. A group had booked most of the rooms and it seems they were given priority. Ms. Perez handled my situation in a manner worthy of a novice in the hotel business. In addition, she mentioned that my reservation had been made through a travel agency (not the case) in a dismissive manner and as if I had obtained a particularly favorable discounted rate (U$S225 hardly seems like a discounted rate). The hotel’s website is run by Mexico Boutique Hotels. Ms. Perez’ brother Javier Perez owns the hotel which partly explains her behavior and treatment of guests. Perhaps Ms. Perez rudimentary use and understanding of English may have added to the confusion.

Our room, La Condesa, was a large room nicely appointed in 19th century imitation furniture. The bed was very firm and not comfortable. A previous reviewer mentioned the noise on the street-facing rooms. The earplugs on the night stands were an amenity that would later confirm my suspicion of why they were there in the first place. I was assured by the clerk at the front desk, that the traffic noise at night would be minimal. It was not. Trucks, buses and cars made it impossible to rest.

The bathroom was adequate if only in need of a remodel. By my estimate, it has been 10+ years since one was done. The toiletries seem home-made in refillable glass containers (fine in my environmentally conscious mind.)

Breakfast was pleasant and the homemade breads were nice. There were not “jams” (as claimed in the description of the hotel) but one jam. You could order from the menu and the omelette and French toast were nice as well.

While the rate was quoted in US Dollars, when I checked out the amount was converted to Mexican Pesos at 11 pesos to the dollar. All other hotels I have stayed in quoted their rates in Mexican Pesos (the correct, honest and probably legal way to do this).

In summary, I would not recommend this hotel. I am perplexed on how they have achieved a 4 diamond category from AAA.

Things to be aware of:

Rooms that face the street are: La Condesa, El Angel, La Abuela and Conde de la Valenciana. They are so called Standard rooms.

Suites in the back part of the hotel start at $260 + tax. Not worth it in my assessment of what other hotels offer.

Other hotels that you should consider in the same price category:

1)Villa Maria Cristina: 500 yards closer to town (from Quinta Las Acacias) also on Paseo de la Presa. A Small Luxury Hotel, rates U$S 250 for a suite to $375 for a master suite. Checked the rooms and they are superb.
2)Casa Estrella de la Valenciana: Superb bed and breakfast, with a home feel hosted by Sharon Schaap Mendez. Rates are U$S 170-220 for a large suite with sitting room, fabulous views of Guanajuato, a steam room, double shower and double sinks. Nothing has been missed on the amenities. See my separate review.
3)Camino Real is about to open their new addition to Guanajuato. It seems contemporary and was told that it will be a “minimalistic” type of establishment as far as the décor is the rooms is concerned.

Response from AnyGuanajuato, Manager at Quinta Las Acacias
Responded Jul 11, 2007
As the General Manager of a small hotel, one becomes very involved with the hotel's experience and takes things much to heart when a guest leaves the property unsatisfied. Although 100% satisfaction is rarely obtained, we work very hard to make sure all our guests have a wonderful time and are treated with the best attention possible. I think this is reflected in the fact that our hotel has a very good rating on tripadvisor in general. I'd like to respond to the guest from Indianapolis' comment directly. This guest did book on our site (I'm not sure why Mexico Boutique Hotels is mentioned at all here) and chose the Mastercard premium package that clearly says that an upgrade will be one of the perks if available when guests arrive. The package also includes a welcome cocktail and a romantic montage with flowers and candles in your guest room. Our little hotel was fully booked when the guest arrived and the higher category rooms were paid for by this group. This was not favoritism but normal business procedure and we did not go against our word. We kindly explained this but to no avail. Our hotel is in fact family-owned. This means our hotel was built, renovated and continues to be operated by people that care about it deeply. I am mostly sad and disappointed by this guest's overall derogatory comments. I know that we have a nice little hotel and that our guests are given special attention and care. I only regret that we were never given the opportunity to show this to this particular traveler.

We stayed at Quinta Las Acacias for 5 daysin July 2006 when we went to Guanajuato to visit our son who was in the midst of his one-month Spanish immersion program. We loved the the hotel. Our room was La Purepecha, in the back of the hotel, and the setting couldn't be more charming and serene. The suite is comfortable, spacious, and extremely clean although the housekeeping wasn't always very consistent (e.g., some nights there were turn-down service, some nights there were not), but any request was quickly satisfied. The staff was extraordinarily friendly and helpful. Although there was construction in progress further to the back of the hotel, it didn't cause any inconvenience. The location is an easy 15 minute walk from the center. But one can also easily take a taxi to town, or better yet, just take the city bus which runs frequently and efficiently from the hotel to town and back. Guanajuato is a lovely town, and we're planning a return there soon.

We stayed in the most beautiful room, #10, at the top of the stairs, French doors open to views of the rocky mountainsides across the valley, to the hotel's gardens and to the gorgeous little slice of swimming pool (for everyone but it seemed like our private pool because no one else was ever in it).

The staff was professional, helpful, spoke English very well. Breakfasts (that came with the price of our room) were delicious. Of all the fancy rooms and lovely places we have stayed in France, Italy, England, Ireland, the West Indies - this was our favorite!

We stayed at Quinta Las Acacias for 4 nights at New Years. The food at their restuarant is impeccable. The standard was excellent. When we arrived in Mexico I was concerned about stomach bugs and wasn't going to eat salads or certain fruits. As we dined more and more at the restaurant my confidence about the quality of the food grew. And I ended up eating salads etc without getting ill. Because we knew we could trust the meals at the Hotel we ended up eating most of our meals there. The room we stayed in was lovely and large - Mexican theme. I would not have wanted to stay in one of the rooms in the front part of the hotel upstairs as most people have to walk past them on the wooden floors to the restaurant. Our room was a suite and away from the main building which was very quiet. The service was fantastic and nothing was a problem. They accomodated our every need, including offering a english speaking tour guide to drive us around the area for the day. We used to walk to the main centre of town - 20 minutes. Then when we were tired it was nice to retire to the quiet leafy street where the hotel was situated. Just a tip downtown - there are a couple of gypsy kids roaming so beware of your camera.

My husband and I stayed at Quinta las Acacias for four nights. It is beautifully decorated and quiet (about a 25 minute walk to town). The staff is superb - helpful and attentive. The restaurant serves interesting breakfast entrees and the dinners are wonderful. Our room (at the top) was large and comfortable. We'd go back in a minute - it's a perfect compliment to the charming town of Guanajuato.

My husband and I just spent an enchanting 5 day's in Guananuato, Mexico. The town in itself is lovely, fantastic architecture with Spanish and Moorish influence, museums, silver and gold mines, and lots and lots of history. We stayed at Quinta las Acacias, a small luxury hotel. The hotel was an excellent choice and the service was incredible, very personal. Our room exceeded our expectations and our own private deck and pool was magnificent. The hotel served an excellent made to order breakfast each morning. Before we arrived, Anna provided us with a day to day itinerary for the week. We walked into town (an easy 10-15 min walk) and had no problems following her itinerary. We did manage to spend at least one day relaxing at our own private deck and pool. The staff was also helpful in all matters, arranging tours, securing dinner reservations and scheduling massages.

Overall, I would recommend this charming hotel to everyone. We enjoyed our stay so much that were planning on coming back again in the very near future. If you want to mix a little luxury with Mexican history, this is an absolute must.

Most hotels close to or in centro are noisy and overpriced. While not in centro, it's certainly within walking distance. We opted not to have breakfast as we had a flight to catch and didn't want to take the time. The only queja was that we specifically chose the more expensive Guelaguetza room because of the jacuzzi. But it quit working after 2 minutes. We mentioned it to management the next day wondering if they'd offer something to compensate, but they only sent an email apology. Which was OK I guess. Overall, a nice place. I'd stay there again.
