My three friends and I each got a room in this hotel for four nights. We paid $250 pesos/night each. The rooms were small, but clean and comfortable; they each had a double and a single bed. None of us saw a single bug our entire stay. The cleaning service was very good and gave clean linens and towels each day. The staff was friendly and tried to be helpful but didn't speak English. The hotel has a delightful courtyard where my friends and I would sit each afternoon and drink beer – we later found out this was against the rules but no one said anything to us - just the man in charge of cleaning would hover nearby and whisk away any bottles as soon as we emptied them. Our rooms all opened up to the courtyard and were very quiet. The hotel has a restaurant associated with it, but we found it to be mediocre at best. The first night my room had a strong sewer odor, but I found that there is a rubber cover for the shower drain that completely blocks any odors. The location of the hotel was very convenient to the historic center of town; just a few minutes of nearly flat walking brought us to the square. The hotel might not be where I'd take my wife for a romantic getaway, but for four old guys, it was more than adequate.

Top Local Tips for Guanajuato

Driving in Guanajuato Don't drive in Guanajuato. There is no driving in the historic center of town anyway, and taxis are very cheap and always available when you need to go somewhere else. The roads are confusing and are largely in dark, fast, confusing tunnels.

Just a great place! Cab ride from Leon airport $40US / cab, save money by finding others at the baggage claim to share. We always tipped 10% on everything. You don't need a car, but bring a good good pair of walking shoes. Outlying areas around town interesting and quiet and only $3 cab ride away. Bus ride to San Miguel was $9US first class - wonderful bus ride, the US needs to take note. San Miguel is very la-ti-da and very North American - expensive shops, art galleries, wonderul pastries, big big mercado for touristy stuff and other things, cool art school/center, but overall boring and expensive - we felt like we were back in the States and couldn't wait to get out of there, maybe it was the heat. Guanajuato much more authentic and very alive! Altitude of GTO is 6700 feet with minimal humidity - -hot days, and cooler nights; i could have brought a long sleeve shirt for the evening. Definitely bring a sweater.

you need to visit all Guanajuato is a very interesting & romantic place , and very colonial city, you enjoy the streets the older buildings, the mines, Juarez theatre is amazing.
