“Agree... hotel is OKish”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2005

I must say I was underwhelmed by Mision Guanajuato. Access and accessibility of the are terrible. You have to carry your luggage through stairs and a small walk before you even get to the first bellhop (not consistent with a 4-5 star hotel).

The hotel is old and although the colonial construction is nice, it also makes it difficult to navigate. Staff and service are OK.

The rooms are quite big (nice) but feel rather cold and furniture and amenities are certainly not new. I also had some problems with the water temperature (it fluctuated between scalding hot and super cold while you are in the middle of the shower).

Lots of kids were at the pool during daytime, so I suppose it must be more fun for families. Business travellers are far from most important commercial and office sections and leisure travellers are also a bit far from the city's main attractions.

At US$73 that I paid (over US$100 rack rate), the hotel is not worth it. Mision Hotels are usually nice, sadly it was not the case with Guanajuato's.

Rooms large enough but below average for the price (by mexican standards), not that welcoming and rooms smell musty.

Because of the freaky roads in Guanajuato, it's virtually impossible to walk in to the centre. They do have a free bus to town every so often, but not coming back.

On the plus side, there is a lovely hacienda and gardens right next door which are well worth a visit (even if you don't stay at the hotel)

Overall, okay but not great. Stay in a hotel in the centre of Guanajuato instead.

The mision is an old ranch that has been turned into a hotel. The grounds are very nice. The rooms are big but they smell really musty and the hotel does not have air conditioning. Ask for a fan so that the smell can go away. Breakfast was not that good either. It's better to go into town for a really nice breakfast.
