Went for 2 nights with my husband and mother-in-law. The hotel is simply gorgeous and very reasonably priced. The staff were attentive and helpful; they answered our questions, carried our luggage up and down the stairs, and called taxis for us. The room was clean and everything worked wonderfully. We got the room with 2 beds for 3 people. The... More

This hotel has a good location and nice stuff. We stayed for 3 nights at the hotel and the breakfast was different each time. If they have plenty of guests they prepare a generous breakfast, if they have very few guests the breakfast is very basic. Our rate was the same for all three nights and I was surprised that...

This charming hotel has a great location, just far enough the traffic and an easy walking distance from the cathedral and the Teatro Juarez. The breakfast is inconstant (sometimes, there are many plates in the buffet and other times, there are no varieties - there are less clients). The terrace on the roof worth the price, which is ok compared... More

This hotel was a highlight of my trip to Central Mexico. It is built into the side of a mountain and has a really funky layout with endless steps. For physically impaired people or people who do not do well on steps this place is a no go! The hotel is quintessential Guanajuato and in a perfect location 2 doors... More

Time of my life, beautiful place, best of locations. Nice price. It is just aside the Diego Rivera museum-house. A couple of steps from the main square, the main teather and from one of the main events at night in Guanajuato... "Los tuneros"

This is our first trip to Guanajuato and we did not know what to expect. We almost went the known route being that we traveled from Texas and nearly booked an American hotel like holiday inn or Hampton inn. This would have been a huge mistake El meson offered first off a very comfortable clean quiet environment. The staff was... More

This was my first visit to Guanajuato. I didnt know to expect but I am glad I decided to visit. It is such a beautiful city, vibrant nighlife, the colors, the history, architecture, the narrow streets and alleys. El Meson de los Poetas is perfectly located in the center of everything. It's within walking distance to all of the attractions,... More

We were pleased with the hotel's location, staff, breakfast, character. It was hot in June, he tower fan in the room was necessary and as I am sensitive to noise, it made it hard for me to sleep. Ear plugs would probably have fixed that. The hotel seems to be 2 buildings put together with lots of steps. If you... More

We had a fabulous time but if you're not a walker then check in somewhere else because it's no joke about the stairs. Other than that the location is very central and the hotel itself is very clean and the food is decent.

My wife and I stayed here 2 nights. It's a large, beautiful hotel, with a spacious interior. Our room, on the third floor (fourth if you're American), was good sized with a modern bathroom and a comfortable bed. Location is fine, though I wonder whether you could stay in a hotel anywhere in this small town that would not be... More
