This hotel actually has three locations in Guanajuato, we stayed at the Traditional. It was a healthy walk from the historic center, about 15 minutes relaxed walking. And there were eseveral others in the same area. Of cource there were many more inside the historic area but we opted for The Abadia to save some money. The accomodations were comfortable and clean. We had a tv (not all of them do) and a nice fan. No AC, but as with many Mexican hotels, you don't need one. The restuarant was actually quite good. I like to cook a lot so I am usually very critical of reatuarants. But nothing but high marks for this one. Good food, presented very well, affordable, and the service was top notch.
It was littered with artwork and uniquely designed walkways. It was a very comfortable place to stay. It has a small pool, and its own parking. Many of the staff made sure to speak to us and ask if we needed anything. And the restuarant manger took time to talk to as many guest as possible.
Casa Mexicana walks the line between being a great hostel and a great budget hotel. When I booked, I thought I was getting a shared dorm room with an attached bathroom, but ended up getting a private bedroom (with two beds) that shared one of two communal bathrooms. Not bad for the equivalent of $13 per night! Tons of students at the connected Escuela Mexicana stay here, so it's a great place to practice your Spanish with other learners and to meet young travelers. There isn't a big common area, but there is a clean, shared kitchen on the main floor and a cute patio space in the courtyard. Apparently there is also a rooftop patio but I didn't check it out. There were only three minor disappointments during my stay: some of the services advertised on the website are not offered (such as a lounge with TV, the book exchange and the partnership with a local restaurant), the staff are totally unhelpful and can't provide very basic tourist information (in Spanish), and there were quite a few ants in my room. However, for $13 a night I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, and I definitely recommend Casa Mexicana!
El Zopilote Mojado isn't a traditional hotel but more of a guest house with three lovely rooms. It is located on a quiet plaza with no car traffic. It is in a great location in the historic part of town. The room was spacious, beautiful and immaculate and comfortable. The bathroom was large with plenty of hot water and they even had bathrobes for guests, a nice touch. The entire city can be seen from the rooftop terrace and their is a great little cafe on the ground floor where we ate a tastey breakfast for 45 pesos a person(juice, coffee, eggs, fruit, quesadillas). They also serve one the best cappucinos in the city. They arranged transportation for us from the airport for $30, which is about forty-five minute drive. The double room with bath was $50 a night.
Great views from the rooftop terrace of the city.Located in the heart of the centro historico.
Beautiful hotel, nice and quite for a couples get a way. I went with my best friend so we were out shopping all day and dinner/bars at night. Beds were comfy!
Nice views from top floor terrace with jacuzzi. Indoor pool and spa. Nice looong walk to town.
This hotel was the cheapest we could find in Guanajuato, about 200 pesos for a double room. Accommodation is a bit more expensive in Guanajuato than elsewhere in Mexico; in our two months in the country we generally paid 100-160 for a room.
The room was pretty bare (no powerpoint) but the location and price were unbeatable; and the eccentric decor was a nice touch. Just take a look at the animated witch that hangs above the entrance!
Amazing accomodation, amazing service. The hotel had personality, quiet elegance and very much defined style. Very Mexican, colourful and artistic.
Each room exhibits original poetry and paintings of the local artists which adds to that elegant beauty of the hotel. As you pass the reception desk and on your way to the chosen room, you must pass this amazing patio suitable for reading or simple relaxation...it is almost a space to slow down and breath. Better think of it, the entire hotel echoes the idea of slowing down and taking in all the surrounding beauty.
Staff was very welcoming and helpful. Because there are no elevators and four levels in total, staff carries your bags.
On the top floor there is an open patio with a seating space provided. The patio overlooks the entire city and the most amazing view one can experience is at night...when the entire city slows down and lights up.
The city slows down but people wake up and celebrate...this was one of the personal observations while standing on that patio, being hidden and secure from it all, standing above, yet feeling such a strong connection with each voice heard...
I would go back to this hotel, not because of its beautiful interior architecture, not because of the original paintings in each room, but because of that moment on the patio...
