“Hotel Socavon”
Reviewed 13 August 2005

My family and I stood at this hotel for two days. Also keep in mind that this hotel use to be an old mine and upon entering the hotel you do feel like you are entering into a mine shaft, dark, gloomy and cold. The rooms are small and not very well lit. No air conditioning only ceiling fans, no elevators. I kept getting locked in the bathroom. The door kept getting stuck.
The restaurant is also very dark with very little light. Prices in the restaurant for breakfast are cheap, about $3.00 per person which includes a small fruit plate. All in all, if you are not planning to spend a large amount of time in your room, if you don't mind walking a long way to all the main attractions i. e. (Jardin Union, Teatro Juarez, La Universidad de Gunajuato, The Mercado etc.), if you want an economical place to stay in Guanajuato, then Hotel Socavon is the place for you.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Socavon in March 2004 after we read the recommendation in Fodor's Guidebook, and we were also lured in by the low price. The hotel is WAY out of downtown, a good 20-25 minute walk up a dirty and very busy street with no ambience or charm whatsoever. The hotel is dark and dingy upon entry, and although there is a much more attractive and quiet courtyard on the interior, it is still a bit gloomy. Our room was pretty bad, with a leaking toilet that put about 1" of water on the floor of the room while we were out, drenching the bottom of our luggage. The room was marginally clean as well and very dark. We asked to change rooms after the water debacle, which the staff took care of immediately, but I really wanted to look for another hotel the next day. Thankfully, we found the MUCH cuter "Hostal Cantarranas," with a perfectly convenient location and nicer room for only slightly more money.
