We spent five nights at El Zopilote Mojado, in the Yellow Room. It's a lovely place, clean and comfortable. We had a private bath--although not attached to the room--and a balcony big enough to view the beautiful street below. There is also a roof terrace with a terrific view. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful. The cafe downstairs...

We stayed at El Zopilote Mojado for nine days and would stay there again. We were in the "blue room," which although small was immaculately clean, nicely furnished and decorated, and quite comfortable, as were the common areas. Our hosts, Raúl and Ana, were charming and helpful, as were all their staff. The cafe had a limited menu, but everything...

This is a clean, and comfortable place with great views. Everyone is really nice, and the prices are excellent. We stayed in el Callejón de los perros muertos. Be prepared to walk up the cobblestones alleys, so bring comfortable shoes. There is a kitchen, dining room, living room with a fireplace, and terrace with amazing views of the city. It...

My spouse, myself, my sister-in-law and niece all stayed at El Zopilote Mojado for three nights. It is extremely clean and modern and were very happy with the beds, the rooms, the sitting area, which was nice since we were all together, yet not together. I also like that it is close to everything, and like the key pad rather...

We spent a week in Guanajuato and stayed at El Zopilote Mojado. We chose it for the interesting name (The Wet Vulture) and after reviewing the website. The hotel is located on a small plaza about a 5 minute walk uphill from the Jardin del Union. There is no vehicular traffic around the plaza, so no traffic noise. The hotel...

I concur with other reviewers on the virtues of El Zopilote Mojado -- Raul and Ana, the friendly and helpful proprietors; the comfortable and nicely-decorated rooms, especially the new apartments in the annex building; the good, filling breakfasts and tasty cakes in the cafe; and the handy location on a quiet plaza just a few minutes' walk from the center...

We stayed here in February, 2007. Raul Galarza, the owner, is wonderful and very helpful. The cafe is very peaceful and has a great breakfast. We had a room in the house nearby (owned by El Zopilote Mojado) and had the use of the entire house, including kitchen and patio with breathtaking view. We are a retired couple and stayed...

If you're visiting Guanajuato, definitely stay at El Zopilote Mojado. It's close enough to the central part of town to be an easy walk but it's quiet, too. The guest house is extremely clean and comfortable, and the lovely decor only adds to the enjoyment. In addition, the housekeeping staff and the owner are very friendly and helpful. We had...

We spent 7 days and would have spent more if time permitted. Guanajuato is a picturesque colonial town with hills that meander through it like a maze. There are tons of stores, restaurants and everything is accessible, provided one can walk and climb stairs. Prices are reasonsable in comparison to San Miguel Allende. We visited during Xmas so we had...
