The missing towel

Would not recommend Sat, Sep 11, 2010
The hotel made a big deal when one of the towels went missing, and at check out time they charged us extra for "dirty" bed covers.It was an awkward moment to say the least.I had never been charged for a missing towel in all my years of traveling. We will not go back again, and I will not recommend it.

Wonderful hotel, exemplary service

Would recommend Tue, Aug 24, 2010
Small, attractive hotel really near the center of San Miguel and convenient to everything. Rooms and beds were very comfortable, and service was amazing--they even made me a special breakfast at 6AM on the morning I left for the airport! Would definitely return to the Mirasol.

Dining

Try Dona Diabla and El Tomato.

First class in every respect

Would recommend Wed, Dec 30, 2009
The hotel is absolutely superb. It's small and friendly as well as being spotlessly clean. You are really made to feel welcome and the staff are so friendly and helpful whilst maintaining their professionalism. They helped us arrange a trip and book a coach, nothing was too much trouble. As a world traveller I can honestly say this hotel was just excellent!

Attractions

Go non one of the evening Art Walks and meet the artists in their studios - wonderful!

Villa Mirasol

Would recommend Tue, Oct 20, 2009
We were in SM for a wedding and stayed at a beautiful and luxurious "Casa" but then had to move to town for our last three days. We were a little nervous about the Mirasol, but it turned out to be perfect for us...clean, friendly staff (most are bilingual but encourage you to practice your Spanish if you want), and quiet. Perhaps the quiet related to the fact that there were very few guests besides us. We chose the Mirasol because of the many great reviews that others have given it. [...] The Mirasol was ranked 5th most popular of 46 hotels when we booked. And the the top four were all VERY much more expensive. The continental breakfast was fruit, pan tostada and tea/juice. Minimal, but adequate. Besides, it allowed me to go out and get an almond croissant at Petit Four...a fabulous bakery. Margarita at the front desk is super, and Javier in the evening is so freindly. The staff will help you make arrangements for a driver, or transportation back to the airport, etc., but we found that their prices were high compared to what you could get with just un poco shopping around.

Attractions

If you like hiking and the outdoors, make sure you visit the El Charcol del Ingenio. Its a wilderness preserve and very interesting.

Ideal Location, Darling Staff

Would recommend Mon, Oct 19, 2009
I loved my stay here. I got really lucky: it's exactly halfway to the Instituto Allende (to the right), El Nigromante (Bellas Artes) to the left, and the true center (Jardin / Parroquia) straight ahead, about a five - seven minute walk in the different directions, with TONS of great stuff to see / pop into along both walks. Literally around the corner are terrific restaurants (Cafe Monet [really delicious & really inexpensive], Fenicia and Tratorria Antiqua), unique shops, a farmacia (to buy bottled water, etc.) and La Union, an incredible shop for packing / shipping. (They perfectly packed my purchases.) So the location is ideal, and so is the staff. Everyone there couldn't be nicer, more patient (as I practiced my Spanish with them) or more helpful. Every time I entered or left the hotel I was always greeted with the sweetest, most genuine smiles -- lovely. The room in which I stayed (La Casita) is at the front of the hotel, so it could be a bit noisy -- ear plugs and it was a piece of cake! All the rooms have outdoor space -- some a private balcony (as La Casita has), others a private patio or on the terrace. It's really pretty. And finally the price: I think this hotel is an absolute steal! While in San Miguel I had a chance to see many other hotels (as there are tons of them), but I can honestly say I wouldn't stay in a different hotel. My most important advice: take your most comfortable, trusted shoes! Lots of walking on very uneven cobblestone streets and stone sidewalks. It is really hard on the feet.

Clean, quiet and unique

Would recommend Fri, Jul 17, 2009
We were there for a wedding and were out of the hotel most of the time. However, when there it was quiet and the staff was excellent. Breakfast was good - the free continental and the purchased meals. The hotel has it's own water sanitizer which was excellent!
