Location is great you're gonna love it...They speak English.
When you use the toilet after flashing stinky all the room.
We got a room with balcony which was amazing. Very well located. On the other hand very noisy, specially on Saturday Night. Anyway I would book it again.
The noise sometimes were too loud
I love staying at this hotel staff us great.I love this town.planning to buy a home and retire in Guanajuato , Gto.
Nothing , i love staying at San Diego Hotel second time this year I visit.
I like the location of the hotel, decor and free wi-fi.
There is a church and a nightclub nearby. Super loud at night. The church bell rang every hour throughout the entire night, seriously annoying after a long day of sightseeing. It's not the hotel's fault but do take this into consideration when booking.
Think twice before planning to book this disappointing and overpriced hotel. They advertise “master suites” with views to the historic center and all you get is a basic room with views to the side wall of a church and to the back street. When I discussed this matter with members of the staff, they just put the blame on Booking.com for the inaccurate description of the rooms. This is definitely not a good place for good night rest after a long day exploring the city: on Sunday night the restaurant-bar in the opposite building kept blasting horrible music up to 2 am. Don’t even want to think about how it was on Friday or Saturday nights! Then if you manage to have some sleep, be sure you’ll wake up by the sound of cars and the nice smell of petrol fumes. I would come back to this wonderful city but never again to this hotel, which I would not recommend to anyone.
This hotel was perfect for what we wanted ambience was awesome loved the area. Only recommend if your planning On staying up late and partying otherwise it can be noisy. I would defiantly stay again.
The stay states free parking ,but when I get there it only covers from 9pm to 9am then I'm responsible for the rest of the time. Parking is really far about 6 blocks away and no one can take or bring your car to you. So that almost can be inconvenience. Hotel towels are very stiff, found few bugs in the restroom.
I liked the location and the comfort of two rooms, one for our children and one for ourselves. I also liked the restaurant upstairs, with excellent service from Rafael.
My husband and I thought the beds were a little uncomfortable.
Loved the architecture of hotel and the perfect location.
Wi-Fi did not work well.
Hotel was good, most of the staff very healthful, wifi was hit and miss, the noise most speak about we did not have issues with, with stood in the suite facing the back street and slept peacefully. I will definetly return to hotel on next visit. Location was the best! Right in the middle of the city.
Only complaint is parking, they need a valet service, I had to do a heavy hike to and from hotel parking lot. But the whole city has an issue with parking, and I had asked hotel staff to assist me in returning to many highway to exit city, first they said they would have some one accompany us to city exit, when we checked out the clerk gave us attitude, it was not the same person. Luckily I found a tourist guide outside hotel to help, driving in Guanajuato is VERY confusing the whole city has tunnels.
Location was excellent. I was traveling with grandparents and this hotel was close to many sites we wanted to visit. Bell boys were also helpful when needing a taxi or other arrangements. Housekeeping was always prompt and thorough.
That the parking area was at the lower floor and I could hear alarms going off during the night. Also if you choose a standard room they are very small and older bedspreads but clean. There was limited hot water. Finally, the hotel closes it's doors at midnight so if I wanted to be out later I couldn't...that was odd.
Location is right on the main square and convenient to everything. Was given a spacious room with large window and bathroom window after complaining about being given a room with no window. Room clean and comfortable bed. Wifi ok.
Loud church bells day and night from church next door, a lot of noise from plaza. Elevator is manually operated and operator isn't always available - I had to walk up or down three flights several times. Also elevator doesn't go to all floors, and I had to go up or down one flight in any case. No ac, but room was requested a fan and room was reasonably comfortable with fan. Very unfavorable exchange rate when converting from dollars. No English-language channels.
All of the employees at the Hotel are very friendly and really work hard to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The location is perfect because all the major attractions are within walking distance and that's what makes the price worth it. There are other hotels that are cheaper but not as beautiful as this one, and some of them are also a little off the way from the major attractions.
The location and the upper floor rooms were excellent. The remodeled junior suites were very tastefuly done. The tilework and building in general were very nice. Parking was tight, but free. Be sure to reserve parking in advance since there are only 4 spots!
The rooms were quite loud, as they were on a main square.
No Wi-Fi in bedrooms, only in the lobby. Master suite only has 1 bathroom for a max of 8 guest! Master suite lacks decore, very boring. No breakfast service at the hotel. If I knew just how LOUD it would be till 4am due to the club right next door I never would had booked this hotel.
Very lovely hotel in a very romantic location, we loved it there.
Very comfortable for mom in separate room with daughter and her friend in their own single beds in another room. Staff actually walked us to the restuarants they recommended. We were right on the main square so close to everything.
Bring ear plugs. The church is right next door and, while the bells are pretty, you don't want to hear them when you are trying to sleep. They ring all night and the crowd and music lasts until about 2am or later.
I liked the staff and the room overlooking the main plaza.
Too noisy! The music in the plaza from the mariachi bands and others didn't stop until 11:00 to midnight. One night a week is student night and the noise level in addition to the music was too much. The students kept talking, shouting etc. until 2:00 to 3:00 a.m. I would suggest another hotel a block or two away from the plaza where the noise level would be less. Everything is close in the central part of the city so a block or two from the plaza is nothing.
Location was what we wanted.
No air conditioning......in fact no air circulation at all. No coffee pot. Wifi iffy in rooms. Rooms very poor condition. Had to leave patio window open at night to breath and then this did not help the noise level. Very expensive for the condition of the hotel.
The staff and the location
The upgrading of our room to a balcony overlooking the plaza and the Disco that played until 3. Should inform your customers of this before booking.....After the first night our stay was Great....
good public spaces
small dark room
excellent location with a great view of the Jardin. There is an elevator.
It is noisy, as everyone remarks, but the noise is music and laughter from the crowds below, and it stops at 1 am, so it's not bad.
good location, services
entrance to parking not easy to find when arrive at first time. Noise from one of the nearest bar may be an issue.
Too much noise inside the hotel. Could not pay with AMEX
the area was great center of a lot of things going on during day and night outside the hotel
when we asked for ice in two glasses we got turned down by the restaurant staff saying they did not have ice this was very unexceptable also the rooms need A/C or screens on the doors to let fresh air in
Staff was great. Especially Arnold. He helped with tours, checked on prices (English vs. Spanish), tucked stuff into the safe.
This is a double edged sword. The location is fabulous, near everything. That includes the bars with loud thumping music until 4 or 5 in the morning. Quite noisy here.
