Stayed for a weekend. Don't drive. Take a taxi from airport. No parking and difficult city to drive. The hotel was clean and the rooms were comfortable. I liked the decor and breakfast was included and good. The coffee shop out to the right was great. I liked Guanajuato but SMA is better. Great hotel. Would use them again.

This hotel is beautiful and spotless. The decor is very tasteful and the layout is magnificent. Great location in the center of town. It's a short walk to most attractions and restaurants. The staff was very pleasant. They offer a continental breakfast that included a traditional Mexican food and/or fruit and cereal. I definitely recommend staying here. Viva Mexico!

Its very close to the main garden and theater. The major market its around. 7 minute walk. Callejon del beso and a little square with lots of eateries is a 2 min walk. Check in was a breeze as well as check out. Bfast is well priced but could use more choices I guess. Staff was super cool and polite....
