“A Wonderful Place!!!!”
Reviewed November 24, 2007

I went to San Miguel de Allende for the first time this year. My best friend had been there several times and had stayed at Casa Maricela. I absolutely loved the place. We were there for nine days. There are seven bedrooms with baths, each one different. It is a home like atmosphere, and serves two excellent meals a day (8 a.m. and 2 p.m.) There are three excellent housekeepers who keep the place spotless and cook delicious food. Maricela Campos Hernandez, the proprietor, is a lovely, kind person. She speaks English and frequently joins her guests at the table. Especially for a first time visitor or someone not conversant in Spanish, Casa Maricela is perfect. However, Maricela also has a number of repeat visitors, as well as one person who lives there the majority of the year.
I love Maricela and her Casa and would highly recommend it to anyone.

  • Liked — Maricela, the room, the food, the location, the house, the roof patio (everything)
  • Disliked — Because of stairs, it is not good for people with certain disabilities. Also, there is no real room for little kids to run around.

Maricela and her staff are a treasure and reason for me to return to San Miguel. After two visits I feel like this is home away from home.

Food is great! Every morning there is fresh fruit with yogurt and this amazing concotion of nuts/granola to sprinkle on top of the yogurt. Afternoon lunch is equally splendid and the mix of guests & conversation is interesting. Maricela typically eats each meal with her guests which adds to the ambiance.

After my first night, and my room was cleaned the next morning, I couldn't find my shoes. Low and behold the maid (can't remember her name) had placed them in a special "shoe" drawer in the dresser. Furthermore, all of my things were properly folded and in their proper places. Nice touch.......

Can't wait to return....I love the top floor rooms with easy access to the terrace with the best views in SMA.

  • Liked — Friendly staff
  • Disliked — Noise during town festivals - fireworks etc. This is a Mexican tradition however. Hard to avoid.

I consider this a real find!! 2 blocks from the Jardin, breakfast as well as comida. Lovely rooms with baths. Roof terrace. Totally unbelievable for the price. English spoken and help with Spanish. Maricela is wonderful!

  • Liked — A charming B&B, with both breakfast and dinner served. A most comfortable interaction with owner, staff and other guests.

In May I stayed at Casa Maricela for a month while I studied Spanish at the Academia Hispano Americana. Maricela's house is wonderful in every way: excellent location on a quiet residential street just moments from the Jardin; clean, comfortable rooms; two delicious and abundant meals a day; reasonably priced; and the best view in San Miguel from the rooftop terrace. Maricela and her excellent staff are warm and welcoming - they do everything they can to make their guests feel at home. This was my second visit to Casa Maricela and I definitely plan to return - I recommend it highly.

A great find in San Miguel! I spent 3 weeks there being spoiled by Maricela and her staff. The breakfast & lunch were 3-course meals. Rooms have their own bath & TV. The view from her roof terrace is incredible. The location is superb, just 2 blocks from the main Jardin/Square. Maricela speaks english and can help you with your spanish too.

This is a very nice place with very helpful people.

The location is close to the "El Jardin". About 3 blocks.

The accomodations are excellent and the food they serve is exquisite. They serve breakfast and lunch.

For the price, it is an unforgettable experience.

With so much beauty in each unique room, in the rooftop deck, and in the dining room, it was hard to believe Maricela's B&B also had great location and low cost! Amazing. Two delicious meals a day and lovely bilingual conversations with Maricela and her guests made me feel comfortable, and elegant. B&Bs like Maricela's are why I love B&Bs.
