La Casa Arriba
Reviewed April 13, 2011

We stayed at La Casa Arriba in the casita "La Terraza." This casita had floor to ceiling glass windows in the bathroom and a large, beautiful terrace overlooking the town. The casitas are all tastefully furnished and private. You couldn't ask for a better host in the owner, Ken. He is extremely knowledgeable about the area, and just an all-around super nice person who will bend over backwards to make his guests happy. We loved the short walk to the center of town, especially the climb up so we could burn off all of the chips and salsa we ate. Highly recommend!

Room Tip: La Terraza - the name says it all.

I stayed at La Casa Arriba last October when I went to San Miguel for a wedding. I was traveling solo and looking for a more local experience, as opposed to staying in a traditional hotel.

I cannot rave enough about the accommodations or the hosts! First of all, the building is beautiful, and the rooms are very clean, spacious and comfortable. Accommodations like this in California would easily go for upwards of $300/night. I believe I paid $60/night for the smallest room (which was not small at all - fireplace, spacious bathroom, sitting room, private entrance and access to a terrace that overlooked the town). Moreover, Ken was able to make great dining, sight seeing and shopping recommendations. I felt like I was staying at a friend's house, not a hotel. And this friend has a very very nice house.

We were in San Miguel de Allende for a week. Love every minutes of it. La Casa Arriba is like a dream, great views, beautiful casitas for a great price. We felt so lucky to have found this place and the owner Ken Morrow was nice and graceful. We ended up married in this house. The first to get married here. What can I say, love every moment there.

La Casa Arriba is fantastic. The setting is romantic and beautiful -high on the hill above San Miguel Allende with a view of the colonial architecture and Parroquia below. It is a small guesthouse - three separate casitas with private entrances and terraces, artfully appointed with local craftsman's work. Hosts and staff are the best - helpful, but respectful of your privacy. A seperate kitchen is available with all the usual amenities, and the casistas all have private baths. WI-FI and phone service are provided, although you probably won't be so inclined after a few days of complete peace and relaxation. It is a short walk to the Centro district, restaurants,and the Jardin and all it's happenings. Highly recommended! You won't want to leave!
