Villa Sueno Azul

We had the budget rooms facing the street, which were not as noisy as one might expect, as the traffic lessens by about 10 p.m, and the wooden shutters block out most of the noise and light. The beds were comfortable, but I did not like the tan/khakish colored sheets - even tho I'm sure they were clean, they just don't LOOK clean, like white sheets do. Also, have mixed feelings about the jug of filtered water in the rooms - unlike most hotels, this one does not provide a free bottle of water. I like having a bottle that I know is all mine, rather than a jug & glass, but on the other hand, it does save plastic and is better environmentally. Bathroom very small, but clean and served the purpose. My friend in next room took a shower in late evening and had luke-warm water, but mine was hot in the morning. Good location, only a 10 min walk to most attractions, felt safe, and staff helpful. Breakfast was average. Peaceful, pleasant common spaces to read, chat with other guests, watch t.v. etc.- nice homey atmosphere.

You are right. One of the things we tried to do was to minimize the waste of plastic by providing glasses and a covered jug in each room for purified drinking water (since we provide unlimited purified drinking water for our guests). However, we understand sometimes a plastic bottle is more convenient. From now on we will put bottled water in addition to the glasses and jug.

On the other hand, we wish we had known about the warm-water in the shower of one of the rooms so that we could have addressed the problem on the spot. Unfortunately, we did not know about it until now. We just want you know that we truly appreciate your comments because that is what allows us to do a better job.

We spent 5 nights in the Gladiola Room in January. The entire facility is neat, clean, well appointed, and has lots of nice decor touches. There is attention to detail not seen in some of our other recent stops. The Gladiola Room was nice as well. Comfortable bed. As indicated by others, it has a small balcony and is near the back of the facility, which cuts down on street noise. The shower is a bit cramped but functional. The only real complaint with the room was I could not get wi-fi on any of the three devices we had with us. Great reception up front (where the router was), but it was weak to non-existent toward the back of the facility. Mali was a great hostess. She made excellent recommendations for sight-seeing and restaurants and helped us with a variety of questions that arose (e.g., laundry). The location, on the edge of the centro area, was fine, though I began to grow weary of navigating the crowded and narrow sidewalks after a few days.

Room Tip: 1) I think I'd be concerned about street noise in the front rooms (both pedestrians and traffic...

Thank you for letting us know about the WI-FI coverage. In the past we had our internet provider look at the problem and thought the problem was fixed because we were getting a strong signal throughout the B & B for a while. To address the problem we are talking to an American IT consultant and hope to resolve the issue pretty soon. We appreciate your comments and hope you can visit us again in the future.

p.s. The rooms facing the street are less expensive due to possible noise, since different people have different tolerance to noise in the city.

we spent 5 nights here in late October during Cervantino. located is perfect! close enough to walk anywhere and just far enough away from the maddening crowd. mali was the perfect hostess and could not do enough for us. we stayed in the gladiola room - spacious and with a balcony overlooking the "atrium". perfect spot for a morning cup of coffee or a an evening glass of wine. the "continental" breakfast is more than ample, but one morning I just had to have the chiliquiles and they were the best I ever had!

I spent two nights in the Gladiola room with it's private little balcony, perfect for reading while it rained. Diane went well beyond my expectations helping me receive and send papers for an unexpected real estate deal in Canada, it seems to me it's when you need something a little "extra" that you find out the true willingness of someone, or a business to be helpful. Thank you Diane.

My wife and I spent three nights here at the end of her business trip. Malinali was a perfect concierge, arranging tours, restaurant reservations, and generally making the visit a breeze. Not a huge room, but we didn't spend much time in it so it was what we wanted. Huge bed, big bathroom. Water pressure is an issue as others have mentioned, but nothing we could not easily handle. At the price, a great deal.

Villa Sueño Azul is a great B&B. It is very tastefully decorated with nice, quaint rooms and a good breakfast included. Malinali and Lydia are very friendly and helpful as are the owners, Paul and Kali. The location is also nice, being in a quiet neighborhood only a 10 minute walk to downtown. We happily celebrated our 5th anniversary here. Try it; you'll like it.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a patio and are bigger than others. Ask for details.

The beautiful Villa Sueno Azul was the highlight of our 3 day mini vacation in Guanajuato. It's small and beautifully done with the best of Mexico style, complete with flowers and fountain on the patio. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The continental breakfast included great coffee and all the cut up fresh fruit we wanted, and a heartier breakfast was available at a small extra charge. The manager was extremely friendly and helpful. I think she would have taken us on a personal tour of Guanajuato if we had asked her to! Our third night was free. We kept telling each other that we could definitely get used to staying for a long time at a great place like Sueno Azul.

Room Tip: We stayed in the upstairs room with a personal balcony. Can't remember the name. It was exquisit...
