We heard about this hotel from a local Guanajuato resident. My wife and I, along with our two boys, stayed in it -- initially selecting it for the value. Children under a certain age are free, parking is free, and breakfast was included, and the price was still way less than many others. It looks unimpressive from the street --...

It is a quiet place but it was kind of far from the main areas. The food in the restaurant is good though. My hubby and I paid for a room with breakfast and we noticed that the prices are the same or lower if we would had just purchaced the room without the breakfast. What really dissapointed us was...

Nice rooms, comfortable beds, helpful staff. It is a bit far from the center - 15-20 min on foot - which means you can actually sleep at night.

I read the reviews and was a little worried when my group traveling to GTO decided to use this hotel. First, remember this is Guanajuato - a beautiful, wonderful, historical city - and there is no Ritz here. First the bad (which I would actually call the "to be expected") -poor water pressure -slow and unreliable hot water -no air...

My family and I stood at this hotel for two days. Also keep in mind that this hotel use to be an old mine and upon entering the hotel you do feel like you are entering into a mine shaft, dark, gloomy and cold. The rooms are small and not very well lit. No air conditioning only ceiling fans, no...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Socavon in March 2004 after we read the recommendation in Fodor's Guidebook, and we were also lured in by the low price. The hotel is WAY out of downtown, a good 20-25 minute walk up a dirty and very busy street with no ambience or charm whatsoever. The hotel is dark and dingy...

“The rooms around the courtyard are going to be quieter but no windows, room 101 is on the street and a little noisy, but you have a big window to open.”

“Definitely choose a room on the courtyard. It's quieter. Beware that this is Mexico and almost all buildings are concrete or brick so noise travels.”
peachlandtraveler, 7 Mar 2014 | Read review
“I got an inside courtyard room on 2nd floor, but if it's during warm months, check out the ventilation--can windows be opened in a way that gives cross ventilation. I noticed some rooms had different window configurations. Also, is ceiling fan on the highest level. If not, they have to send someone to set it.”
