If you are looking for modern convenience or have a mobility disability this is not the hotel for you. This hotel is perfect, though, if you want to feel like you've gone back in time and have been transported to the Guanajuato of the sixteen hundreds. The hotel was made from two old haciendas that were renovated and converted to make the hotel. There are many stairs that one needs to go up and down in order to get to rooms and the breakfast buffet area which is where the old courtyard of the hacienda used to be. The rooms are comfortable and, in the inside part of the hotel, very peaceful and quiet. For heating and cooling our room had a portable heater and a portable fan. Instead of a closet the room had a chiffonier. A slight inconvenience was that the bathroom of our room was rather small and one needed to go up a step in order to reach it. The staff of the hotel is very friendly and most accommodating. One caveat, if you are driving the hotel doesn't have on-site parking. The nearest parking is a private parking lot (dirt lot) that charges two hundred pesos per 24 hour period and is staffed 24/7. El Mesón de los Poetas is withing walking distance of all downtown Guanajuato sites and wonderful restaurants. (We highly recommend La Tratoria, El Mestizo, and Los Campos.)
The only complaint I would have is really not the hotel's fault. We booked our trip through Booking.com and were supposed to get a discount on the third night at half off. The hotel indicated that they were not running any promotion and that the third night at half off must be a promotion from the booking company. We called Booking.com and gave them the coupon code but they did not honor it. Lesson learned and will not use Booking.com in the future.
