“Like an elegant private home.”
Reviewed April 23, 2011

A lovely place to stay. Decorated with huge vintage textiles, colorful but with designer taste. Large comfortable rooms, great breakfast, perfect location. I loved the fact that it was small , quiet, and private, but if you want a bustling B&B scene with chatty travelers, this is not it. Note for disabled, rooms on second floor, breakfast on third. Guanajuanto seemed very safe and definately interesting. I highly recommend this serene B&B.

Room Tip: All rooms seem nice.

I found this B&B when searching online for accommodations for my family and friends who were travelling from Canada to our wedding in Guanajuato. In the many months leading up to the wedding, I corresponded with Hugo the innkeeper, and he was so helpful in answering questions and sending photos. We booked the whole place for several nights and my family and friends had an incredible stay here. Hugo was so friendly and warm and funny,like an old friend - he was a wonderful host! All of the rooms are uniquely different, the whole space is so colourful and artistic. This is beautifully designed with so much Mexican flair.

The rooftop terrace provided amazing views to all the city, and it has a lounge area with an honor bar where everyone shared a lot of laughter and good times (and some cervezas!).

It is located in the heart of town, and you can walk to all of the popular places in the city. Many restaurants and pastelerias (bakeries) surround, and Hugo is amazing for recommending places to eat and places to see.

We will stay at Alma del Sol on any return trip to Guanajuato, and the same goes for our family and friends. Not a single negative to report, this is just an exquisite space, made all the more special by Hugo.

Lovely B&B in heart of Guanajuato, easy walk to museums. Hugo, the proprietor has traveled much in India so rooms are filled with fascinating Indian tapestries. Luxurious bathrooms, great bedside reading lamps, coffee machine in room set up each day so all you have to do is turn it on in the AM. Roof garden and sitting area with help yourself beer and margaritas. Breakfast delicious. Staff outstanding--will orient you and arrange outings, reservations, etc. Actually, I'd like to move in and take up permanent residence.

I was in Guanajuato for a family wedding and we booked the whole B&B for family and friends who traveled from Canada and Australia. We had such a wonderful experience staying at Alma del Sol that we're all talking of going back some day. The rooms are spacious and lovely, the breakfasts gourmet, staff friendly and helpful and the rooftop terrace a great place to sit back, relax, and spend precious times with friends. Hugo was fantastic in helping us manouever the city, making recommendations for eating, places to see and things to do and we were never disappointed with his advice. My daughter's wedding was wonderful and the experience was even more lovely for all of us by staying at Alma del Sol.

We spent two nights in Casa del Sol, a beautiful home with a wonderful roof terrace. After deciding to take Spanish lesson at the Escuala Mexican, Hugo, our host, offered us to rent his Casa del Corazon which is located right next to the Escuela Mexicana (2min walking distance). Hugo took care of that we had every day fresh orange juice and his servants prepared us Mexican breakfast and lunch. Hugo gave us many good hints how best to discover Guanajuato on your own way. No matter if you want to stay in Casa del Sol or in Casa del Corazon, both accommodations are unbeatable in location, comfort, cleanness, price and hospitality! We want to come back definitely.

I have lived in San Miguel de Allende for 21 years and visit Guanajuato often for cultural events, especially for the Festival Cervantino. Until we found Alma del Sol we never had a good hotel experience. The manager, Hugo Amaya, takes care of every possible detail to make his guests comfortable. There is no better location, the plumbing is modern and functions well, the beds are new and comfortable with luxury linens. Hugo's breakfasts, served in a glass dining room on the 3rd floor are awesome for taste and with a stunning view.

What a delight to stay at Alma del Sol. Convenient to all that soulful Guanjuato has to offer, this B&B worked out perfectly for me, a solo woman traveler. Hugo, the manager, is gracious, informed and connected in the community. He provides tons of helpful tips on what to do, where to eat and shop in this beautiful city. I arrived early in the morning and even though I wasn't officially checking in until that afternoon he made sure I had a comfortable place to rest in the sun room and had me join the other guests for breakfast. That led to invites to join other guests as they explored the city, attended symphony rehearsals and got together to celebrate a birthday at a local nightspot. My room was actually a suite - I'm already discussing returning and sharing the room with a friend. I loved the artifacts and wall hangings. Breakfast was delicious. Simply stated, it's a wonderful and welcoming place to stay.
