What a gorgeous hotel, excellent staff and beautiful rooms. Stayed here 2 days for business meetings in town and the hotel was fantastic; I'd strongly recommend it. Views from my room and balcony were an added treat.

This property is located about a 15 minute walk from the center of Guanajuato's historic district. While some visitors may want to be in the heart of the city's activities, this property offers a quiet and tasteful respite from what could be an otherwise noisy stay. The hotel itself is a very carefully restored and renovated group of independent historic...

Lovely facility but labyrinthine. We felt like we were in an MC Escher print, going up and down stairs to seemingly end up in the same place. As a result, bellboys certainly earned their tips. Otherwise, though, service was only so-so -- front desk (there was no concierge) did not have basic information on tourist attractions in Guanajuato, wait staff...

Dear Sir, Thank you very much for your comments. I've taken note of your observations regarding lack of information of Guanajuato programs that you were requesting since actually we do have folders and brochures with this kind of information and activities. Regarding Restaurant service, I'm checking what could happened during your stay and I will really appreciate if you could...

It is well situated a few minutes from the Centro. The hotel covers a fairly large area so that there are many gardens at different levels. The room/suites are large, well lighted and quiet. The restaurant is probably one of the best in Guanajuato offering a large choice of recipes. The only problem is the lack in service. When you...

Exquisite facility supported by an excellent staff. Spacious rooms well decorated and highly functional. Outstanding dining room offering a broad menu of well prepared dishes served by a well trained staff eager to please. This hotel is one of the best we have experienced in Mexico.

Went to a show in the hotel theatre, with one of the rooms available for use by our small group. Gorgeous room! Well appointed with that you expect of a Relais hotel. Afterwards we had a meal in the restaurant, again fabulous. Steak tartare to die (prepared at the table with fresh ingredients) for said one members (who begrudging shared...

This is one of the nicest and most accommodating hotels we have stayed in. Our room near the outdoor pool was spacious and gorgeous--spotlessly clean. There are multiple amenities offered here. All hotel and restaurant staff were kind and helpful. Many on the staff spoke English, so a person not so adept in Spanish could get along just fine. The...
