“Good option worth staying in”
Reviewed June 26, 2005

This hotel is located just outside downtown. Rooms are good not great, they have a balcony that looks over a beautiful courtyard with a large unheated pool. Rooms cost about $100.00 a Bank, bar, restraunt are all located on the grounds and there is plenty of room to park your car. Driving your own vehicle in this town is not advisable because of many tunnels running under the mountains. It is very easy to get lost and very difficult to get back to your starting point. There are many taxies and they will take you one way to town for $3.50 . As you enter the town you will see young men trying to flag you down these are local guides and it's worth $10.00 to have them guide you through the city and its tunnels. You should decide where you want to stay before getting to town. Parking is a real problen if you want to stay in the downtown colonal area. There are several nice older small hotels in the centro area and all have great inside / outside earing area's which are great for people watching. Ther is a new Holidat Inn Express across from the Grand Plaza
and would be a better choice since the Grand Plaza's beds are kike sleeoing on the floor so if you chose the Grand Plaza request beds that you can sleep in. For a true colonal experiance stay down town but do you homework so you can feel confident about your choice before arriving.
Two nights in this town should be enough to experiance the true old colonial
surroundings. There is very little American influance compared to larger cities in the state of Guanajuato. While you are in this area you should take the senic route from Guanajuato to Delosis Helidago about one and a half hour drive as you leave and by all means have great trust in your driver as this road reaches about 10,000 feet and has very few guardrails,no shoulder and your vehicle could tumble down 2000 or 3000 feet with one small mistake. Don't stay in Dolores Hildago because ther are only sparce accomidations of low quality. The town is very nice to shop in for pottery and its fun to stroll around the plaza and eat ice cream in over 100 different flavors and dont look for the ice cream store you get it off the many carts parked around the plaza , it tasty and safe to eat. From DH head south towards San Miguel de Allende about 30 minutes do stop at the stores along this drive the have good prices. Look for a sign on you right about 7 kilometers North of DE Allende { Hotel Taboada ] a wonderful resort for about $120.00 per night. You must drive about 2 miles on a cobble stone road that's not much fun and you will approach a guard shace a steel fence tell the guard you want to go to the office he will accomidate.
What to experiance beaytiful grounds, beautiful pools fed from underground hot springs, horseback riding, tennis and a 10 minuet taxi ride to Man Miguel de Allende. The resort has a great restraunt with pool side service very helpful staff. This resort offers the best of the best dollar for dollae [ A Must Stay for you and your family or just a romanic getaway ]
