A spectacular colonialesque site overlooking the UNESCO city of Guanajuato from on high, with shades of past glories.
At night the sparkling city lights up the walls of the valley are reminiscent of La Paz in miniature, a freeze frame of a multicoloured firework explosion.
Take dinner on the terrace enjoying this vista.
The Refugio Suite was huge with massive windows onto the beautiful 180 degree panorama of the city, but there is an air of antiquity muffling the potential.
The bathroom, complete with bath larger than some swimming pools I’ve seen, is quirky (stylised dolphin motif taps and rails reminiscent of a DeMille set) and in serious need of reformation.
Shaving mirror - bonus points!
Excellent bed and linen.
Good breakfast. Good dinner.
Except for the experience driving through the the astonishing and seemingly endless maze of intersecting subterranean tunnels to the limited central car parking is best avoided, enjoy the exercise of the countless steps...
Bit of a hike to the funicular to descend in a cabin the size of a telephone kiosk to the centre. Shades of Katherine Hepburn appearance in "Suddenly Last Summer".More
