We spent 4 nights at this beautiful hotel, situated a 20 minutes walk from the Guanajuato city center. A Mexican friend had told me this was a great place and we indeed found a very elegant set up, with a lovely inner patio, nice staircases and a heated pool. Our room was superb, with all amenities. Breakfast is nothing special... More

This is the sort of restrained high standard one expects of a Relais and Chateaux establishment in this charming rambling restored neo-classical mansion with an eclectic mix of architectural styles. We climbed a series of various staircases to go to our extremely comfortable and very civilised room(s), which overlooked the pretty swimming pool. I only wished we were staying a... More

We came to Guanajuato to attend Cervatino. The location allowed us to enjoy the hustle bustle of the festival and escape to a place to relax. The rooms are beautiful and the service was impeccable. The view is spectacular.

This former residence was built in the mid 1800's and has been meticulously restored and maintained. The service and staff are first rate. Always pleased to see us and every detail was looked after.

The place is beautiful and the staff is very polite and kind. The spa and the pools are are very nice and clean. The price is to high for what you get in return. If you want to have a good night sleep make sure to book a room far away from the restaurant.

Dear Maribel, Thank you very much for your review. Is a pity we didn't be aware of disturbing noise going to your room. Having three different buildings it would be great for us offering you a much quiet suite. Regarding price we could be one of most expensive hotels in the region but also one of the most upscale ones... More
