“Be carefull”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2009

We had our wedding at Casa Colorada, it has the greatest view of Guanajuato but we were disapointed with the service, we had rented the place from 3 pm but the tables were not ready before one hour late, for example. we did not get what we agreed and we had to ask several times and remind them about our agreements. Some of our licour "disappeared".

To conclude; the service was terrible, and the people were not profesional !!

We stay at this hotel in the holy week in Mexico, we chose it because thres not other available for those days,. The hotel is too expensive about $300 dollas per night and for that price we obtain dirty bathrobes, worn towels, old curtains, the people is very rude at front desk, and the food is not very good. We were dissapointed because we saw the pictures on the i nternet and we thougt that was a nice and exclusive place.

I did not stay at this hotel. I only ate in the restaurant.

We were a party of 5 (four native Mexicans - plus I was the only American). Everyone thought their food was fair to poor. One desert was so bad the two who ordered it had a bite and did not finish it. My expensive piece of beef was stringy and flavorless. The prices were very high for Mexico. (For the same prices or less you can go to truly good restaurants in Guadalajara.)

So maybe you go for a drink to see the view, which is terrific. But any street taco stand (or MacDonalds) has better food, for a fraction of the price.

We recently had dinner at Casa Colorda. The view was spectacular, the service was good, the food was just ok, but when we received the bill, we had been charged $899.00 pesos for the exact same wine that we had purchased in a store earlier that day for $150.00 pesos. I understand standard wine markup, but this is price gauging. The server did not bring a wine list (for which we asked), recommended the wine we purchased, and then we were forced to pay close to $90.00 american dollars for a NOT great bottle of wine (Tempernillo from Baja Cal).

The food is NOT remarkable, but if you decide to eat here please ask for a wine list WITH PRICES or you will be in for an unpleasant surprise when the bill comes!

I need to start by saying that any reviewer who has a screen name that contains "fussy" will never, ever, be satisfied. Having said that, Hotel Refugio is not as bad as some reviewers have made it out to be. I will lay this review out using a Pros and Cons list and then I will interject my comments at the end.

Pros
- Awesome view, probably the best in town
- Gorgeous Spanish Colonial architecture and decorations
- Good resteraunt (for Guanajuato anyways) that takes advantage of the nice views.
- Hilltop locale that has a secluded, elite feel.
- Did I mention the views? The rooms have balconies and windows that allow you to gawk at the breath taking panoramic views of colorful Guanajuato.
- Huge bathrooms
- Sat TV (for when you are tired i guess)
- Homey feel

Cons
- Hi price tag, $250+ nightly (this is Mexico after all)
- Dated in some aspects. The rooms also didn't seem as clean as they should. This may be due to the age.
- Couldn't have a fire in the fireplace.
- Strange smell from the bathroom. Most of the plumbing in these parts of Mexico are quite old so this comes as no surprise.
- No tables or chairs on the patio. I did manage to get room chairs out there so I could do some computer work and drink some coronas.
- somewhat far from downtown; taxis are very quick, however

Honestly, I will stay somewhere else the next time I go to Guanajuato. But, the hotel is not as bad as the previous review makes it out to be. The view is worth the price of admission in my opinion and the hotel grounds are very nice. If you do stay here, ask ahead of time for some chairs and a table for the balcony. You will be glad you did.

This place set me back over $200/night. The hotel has no amenities one would expect for that price. Just rooms and a restaurant. I heard street dogs barking all night long. The staff does not speak English and has no idea how to service guests. The place does have a nice view, and the rooms are nicely furnished. But the bathroom had a funny odor. Not worth the money.
