“Best location, character.”
Reviewed February 15, 2010

We stayed in San Miguel for three nights, my husband and I traveled with my inlaws and wanted comfortable rooms to relax when we were tired of walking around the town.

The hotel is located off the main square in San Miguel, you just can't beat the location. It has valet parking - a definite plus if you are driving. Valet parking attendants were very friendly.

We asked to see the rooms before making up our minds. They showed us two types: one with two double beds and one with a queen size bed. There was a huge difference between the two types. The ones with the queen bed where a lot nicer and better kept. Definitely no smells to complain about. Bathrooms were well lit and very clean. Beds were a little soft, but nothing to complain about.

The corridors and halls were being refurbished, and they were in need of it as the carpets were quite worn. The building has a lot of character as part of it was an old monastery.

Our room was located at the back of the hotel overlooking a lovely central patio, we didn't hear any noise coming from the main square at all. Very quiet nights. Also, we got a low season discount on our stay.

Bar staff are very friendly and drink prices are affordable. The main restaurant, however, had very expensive dishes, so we opted for the cafeteria-like place next to it, with nice food, a lot cheaper and with a view to the square.

This hotel has suffered from a lack of attention to details. The smell is definitely there as I was shown three rooms to pick from and the least offensive continued to offend me every time I re-entered it. The small details have been overlooked, i.e. running toilet, paint peeling from walls, doors not closing correctly, inadequate reading light. The staff is efficient, but nothing to brag about. They begrudgingly allowed me an hour beyond check out to catch a bus. I was disappointed in the hotel and moved enough to write my first ever review of a hotel. Don't make my mistake and believe these reviews.

I was a good option I stay ther with my family (my wife and two little boys) for a week, the location was perfect, a little bit noisy on weekends, but all San Miguel is noisy on those days.

The staff was extremly friendly, the valet parking service worked perfect.

The only thing is that its true, is the bathroom sometime were smelly, but that is not a problem because you don´t spend a lot of time in your room.

Great value for your money.

It was a great place to stay! Very clean rooms and by the way did not smell! It is across the street to the main plaza and a beautiful church! It is walking distance to the market, shops, and restaurants and some galleries. The staff at the hotel were very friendly as well. The restaurant had good service and good food. We definitely want to stay there again, hopefully next year!!

The first thing we noticed was that the staff was not friendly. Our room was smelly when we walked in and after we walked on the carpet we would leave black footprints in the bathroom because it was so dirty. It definately needs to be changed. My son played on it and it turned his knees black. The air worked well and the location was good but there are so many plces to stay in San Miguel that I would not recommend this one.

Great place to stay when visiting San Miguel de Allende. Centrally located in the Plaza Principal and convenient as a base to start and end your day while visiting the city. Our rooms were well-maintained and clean. Air-conditioning in the room was not necessary in March, but surely a nice feature during the summer months. Valet parking was handled by the bellmen since the hotel parking lot is located some distance from the hotel. Highly recommend this hotel for anyone planning to visit SM de Allende.

The room was visually clean but it smelled like mold. One of the rooms assigned to my group had a bathroom problem that made the room (and eventually the hall) smell like a dead rat. The outside noise was extremely loud and the noise in the hallways did not allow for late sleeping. The best thing about the hotel was the location.
