La Casa de la Cuesta should be on your list for your next trip to San Miguel. Situated in walking distance of El centro, its 6 rooms all feature balconies and terrazas with views of the city. Each morning at 9:00 a fabulous breakfast is served, expertly prepared by local cocineras. Bill, your host, responds graciously to your every need. This place is not to be missed!
Charming B&B with only a handful of rooms. Each room is unique. The hotel is filled with the owner’s collection of masks and local artwork. The owners are most helpful in arranging sightseeing and drivers. They serve an amazing hot breakfast every morning.
We really enjoyed our stay at Casa de la Cuesta. Heidi and Bill were terrific hosts: very friendly and helpful. The B&B itself is within a 10 minute (up a hill) walking distance from downtown San Miguel. It is private, peaceful, lovely and the home cooked breakfasts were sumptuous and delicious. We stayed in a spacious room with a spectacular view that overlooked the city; nice linens and comfortable bed, too! There are patios and decks and comfortable chairs and overlooks and artwork and local charm and we just loved everything about it.
My wife and I really enjoyed our recent stay at Casa de la Cuesta! We had a lovely room with a fantastic view of the city through a large picture window. The location is great - close enough to the center of the city that you can easily walk to most restaurants/attractions...yet far enough away that you have a sense of "being away from it all". The ambience is lovely - art and masks everywhere - in fact, the Mask Museum that is part of the B&B is a great visit in itself! Our hosts, Heidi and Bill, couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. Overall a terrific experience!
Casa de la Cuesta is a wonderful B&B in San Miguel, before experiencing the city, Heidi and Bill will introduce you to the Art and Foods of this charming city. They will arrange taxi’s and recommend areas to see and restaurants to eat in. The breakfasts and hospitality and table settings are not to be missed.
This beautiful and tranquil B&B is a wonderful place to stay while in San Miguel. There are so many verandas to sit and enjoy a great view of the city. Hummingbirds are everywhere! The Mexican art collection of the owners is impressive. The breakfast every morning is beautifully served and was consistently delicious and different each morning. The owners have a deep and excellent knowledge of the local community and Mexican culture and heritage which they are happy to share with their guests.I would highly recommend this location for your trip to San Miguel.
Best views of San Miguel in a home like setting. Location is within a 10 minute walk of downtown. Breakfast was superb with each morning different in their offerings Art and collectables in house were elaborate.
If you want an experience rooted in beauty, tranquility, Mexican art, and no superficial flare, this is where you stay in San Miguel. I will forever cherish my time at Casa de la Cuesta. Beauty surrounds you in every moment at this place. The property itself is an absolute gem with stunning views of San Miguel that make sipping coffee in the morning feel cinematic. Each room is a work of art. San Miguel is a wonderful place with many attractions, but you could spend an entire week inside Casa de la Cuesta and not want to leave the property. There is so much to take in. Heidi and Bill and the extended staff are incredibly gracious, knowledgable, and take wonderful care of their guests. An added plus is the Mask Museum and Art Gallery which are part of this magnificent place. Breakfast in the morning is plentiful and delicious. I will be back!…
Staying at Casa de la Cuesta was like stepping into a Mexican folktale. From the moment I entered the property through its corridor of masks, I was enchanted by proprietors Heidi and Bill’s colorful collection of Mexican artifacts and crafts. Each day, something that I hadn’t seen before caught my eye. The property is on a number of levels, each with easy access. Each of the seven rooms is tastefully decorated in a different cultural theme and most have their own outdoor seating area. Mine was themed “Milagros ‘ (Miracles), a cheerful and bright respite with its own fireplace. Outside my door was a terraced patio with comfortable seating and a spectacular view of blooming jacarandas and of the many church domes that grace the skyline of San Miguel de Allende…a great place for a morning coffee or an afternoon glass of wine. First thing each morning, I sipped coffee on the patio in the company of playful hummingbirds and watched a bevy of hot air balloons float by. As you may have read in other reviews, a highlight of a stay at Casa de la Cuesta is the wonderful breakfast, prepared by a cheerful staff of local ladies and served each day on a different collection of Mexican pottery. Two courses, served at a communal table, are more than enough to last you until dinnertime. The first course consisted of juice, fresh fruit, a variety of yogurts, granola, bread and jam. Since I must be on a gluten-free diet, Heidi made sure that I had corn tortillas available to me. The second course was always a surprise…my favorite being huevos divorciados with both green and red sauces and served with beans and a quesadilla. Totally delicious! Located on an uphill street, Casa de La Cuesta is no more than a 10-minute walk to most of the sites, markets and shops in the town. Don’t miss owner Bill’s tour of his on-site mask museum, a personal collection of hundreds of authentic masks with history and stories to accompany them. Be sure to also ask Heidi to share her knowledge and collection of Mexican regional crafts. Casa de La Cuesta…a warm, welcoming and comfortable gem that you will never forget!…
Stayed at Casa Cuesta 6 nights with 4 girlfriends. Loved each and every one of the rooms, all very different, all wonderful. It is like staying at a museum. There are amazing artifacts on every wall and every corner. Breakfast every morning is an experience . Not only is the menu different every day, but so are the dishes it is served in. The food id fantastic, as is the presentation. Heidi and Bill, our hosts, take care of every detail. It truly is a wonderful place to stay. I can’t say enough about it.
