The view is amazing. The room is very basic. WiFi good. TV good. No glasses in room, no breakfast. If you have heavy bags it is not easy. There are no porters. The hotel is not on a road, it is on a very steep hill. They give a pass to ride the cable car down to the main part of town. That view is incredible.

We originally booked this boutique hotel because of the amazing views advertised on the booking site we used. Said views, from our extremely large private veranda, exceeded our expectations. Each morning was like waking up in a magazine spread; this is the type of view you see in print and think to yourself that only the very rich can afford hotels with views like this. However, Hotel Balcon del Cielo is reasonably priced on top of it! It is true that the place is a bit hard to find but once we had our bearings it was fine. The room was a good size and adequately furnished with a clean, minimalist vibe [think Ikea] and the service we received was friendly and competent. The free funicular passes are a God-send; walking down is fine but I would not want to attempt the walk up that steep, mountainside.

I picked this place because of its view of Guanajuato, and the view did not disappoint. High above the city, just a few steps from the top of the funicular, the location could not have been much better. The room was adequate, nothing spectacular. We did have a problem with the smell in the bathroom. I assume the traps weren't installed correctly, and the sewer smells came into the room. If we kept the bathroom door closed, it wasn't too bad. A good thing about the place was that we got free passes to the funicular, which was a great deal. You definitely need the funicular to get up and down to the city center which is where you want to be for the most part. (It would have been nice to know that the pass allows you to cut to the front of the line, too. We didn't know this and stood in line one day for 50 minutes.) Another advantage of this hotel is the free breakfast. We only used it once, but still, it saved a few pesos.

This place doesn’t realize that their own business because i’ve customers , I make a reservation Six months in a Vance and when I got there I didn’t have a room, when I talked to the guy behind the counter he said that they never charge me. I show him the reservation email where I put my credit card in the form, and his answer was. why do you want to stay here so bad There is 100s of other hotels why here, I sad I make my reservations six months so I don’t have to deal with this right now. if you don’t charge me that’s your problem I put my credit card in you send me a confirmation email, and he just said there’s nothing I can do is there anything else I literally feel like This incident ruin my vacation I went to the beautiful city of Guanajuato to the festival cervantino So there was no way I can get a hotel that night, after That I have to drive on the way to Leon to spend the night after this experience I will never stand this place ever and I won’t recommend it to anybody else

Pros: Though a bit hard to find, it is in a great location the view from the balcony was great . The hotel gives you tickets to go down to the center of town which is very convenient. Cons No air conditioning We couldn't sleep due to terrible noise coming from the room above, the room next to us and the center of the city. We had a terrible experience there. Plus we parked our rented car in the parking lot next door (with charge) and we had a flat tire ( seems to be on purpose due to the the total scanario-the guy who told us about the tire conveniently directed us to the mechanic next door and suddenly there were several yung men around our car...., though it could be my solo opinion)
