“I loved staying here.”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

I first stayed in the Ex-Hacienda la Trinidad in the neighbourhood of Marfil when there wasn't space available in the Casa de Espiritus in downtown Guanajuato. I was glad I did though. The Ex- Hacienda is not far from downtown by taxi, only 40 pesos away. It is in a beautiful garden setting with a most charming and helpful host, Hugo. Hugo was very cheerfully up to greet me when I arrived in the middle of the night, and then made the best heuvos rancheros for breakfast the next morning. He seems to know everybody and was immensely helpful with suggestions of what to do, getting me tickets to the Cervantino Festival and even helping me when I lost my debit card! I next stayed in the Casa downtown where lovely Angela was hostess. A great location in the thick of things, it could be a bit noisy but with my ear plugs and the room's wooden shutters it wasn't a problem. Big rooms with antique textiles from Uzbekistan, etc on the walls. Lots of interesting and friendly folks stayed in both locations making this good place for solo travelers to stay. Gracias a Hugo y Angela!

The hotel is located just outside the city in what used to be an Hacienda. Each room is decorated in a very special way. Mine had a swing that looked liked it has come from the motion picture the little princess. Othe rooms were decoreted in a more mexican Style. Since it is a boutique hotel it is small so the owners some times have breakfast with you. The lobby is full of cool , old creepy books to honor the name of the hotel "The house of the happy spirits". Plus the most important thing. Doga are allowed!

Really great place. The decor is unusual in the extreme, in a good way. For Guanajuato, it is relatively quiet, as it is out of town. The host was great, both friendly and helpful. BUT

Getting there is not simple.... welcome to Guanajuato. Nothing is simple about directions in Guanajuato.
Lat long are 21.001451,-101.285753
Google map location is http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&q=21.001451,-101.285753

If you get an offer for GPS, take it. Use these coordinates. You will thank me later.

It is not in town. If you are young and want to be with the party crowd, this is not your place. This is the place to stay to get away from the young and the party crowd.

This place is old... that is kind of the point. So don't expect new plumbing and hermitically sealed rooms. You will hear your neighbors and a little road noise. Personally, I loved the place.. if you have the right attitude you will too.

We spent 4 nights over the New Year's holiday here at this unique and wonderful Bed and Breakfast. The old hacienda itself is a site to enjoy - whimsically decorated, with Mexican folk art and color. Everything from the bathrooms, to the dishware, to the napkin holders held something special.

We had the good fortune of meeting other friendly, interesting guests at our delicious and beautifully set breakfast table. Hugo, the 'inn keeper', was fantastic; accommodating, helpful and thinks of everything. Hearty breakfast of fresh fruit, juice, scones and some Mexican delight held us until late in the day.

While being a little out of town made it a different Guanajuato experience, it was fun to come back to the house to share a tequila with the other guests or just to snuggle in the most comfortable beds I've stayed in in all of Mexico. There are restaraunts not far from the Inn. Parking, nice sheets, big fluffy towels, filtered water, laundry service, robes (and a skeleton - of course!) in the closet.

It has been a long time since I have enjoyed a place as much as this one. A perfect ending to our 2 week road trip from Playa del Carmen to Guanajuato! Muchisimas Gracias a todos!

Room Tip: I think they all have their own special charm!

We stayed for three nights in the Casa de Espiritus Alegres with two adults and a baby. The casa is a converted hacienda with a beautful well maintained shady garden where the bougainville grows three stories high. The whole B&B is decorated in a very artistic way and the rooms are spacious and immaticulately clean. Hugo, who runs the property goes out of his way to explain you every interesting detail about Mexican culture and the interesting sites in town. Breakfast is typical Mexican but the standards are very high, everything is freshly homemade, from the juice till the home baked cakes and bread. The place is a little bit out of town but only an easy 35 peso taxi ride or 5 peso busride away. The small details make this place extraordinary. We definitely recommand it.

Room Tip: We stayed in the casita which has its own kitchen and a pivte terrace.

We are a 55 year old couple and loved the ambiance, the assistance from the staff and we liked the out of town location which enabled us to come back and relax. The cab is a $3.00 easy ride to town.
We would definitely come here again! THank you to all of the staff, Jane ad Hank

This old hacienda is a vibrant arrangement of intense color, surrounded by gardens to match. Our family has stayed here a few times and each time was unforgettable. The ambiance is uniquely Mexican folk, and each bedroom is its own imaginative entity. The staff is friendly and professional, with suggestions and directions for each day's events. They even arranged a Spanish tutor for us! The food is scrumptious; a fusion of fresh Mexican and other worldly. I think my favorite memory is eating the 4 course breakfasts at a festive table with the other (fascinating!) guests, where every chair is hand painted/ decorated by a different artist.

Guanajuato is a colonial city, established for silver mining, with a beautiful historic downtown, and many cultural sights. The weather has always been perfect, usually mid 70'sduring the day, and we've visited in three seasons. The whole experience is refreshing and relaxing. By the time you leave, you'll feel like family.
