San Miguel de Allende’s quaint cobblestone streets, historical buildings, innovative restaurants and local arts and crafts are just a few reasons to visit this amazing city. Our Guide to San Miguel de Allende shares a bit more insight about this amazing town along with things to do, where to eat, etc. We love it here because it feels practically surreal and so different from the rest of Mexico. In this blog we share our top recommendations on where to stay in San Miguel de Allende.
1. Casa No Name Small Luxury Hotel
First on our list is Casa No Name and this property is an architectural beauty. From the moment you walk in through the patio you will feel the magic of this unique place. The rooms are unbelievably elegant and cozy. Top notch service, privacy, fine dining are also part of the exclusive experience and make this place one of the most unique hotels in San Miguel.
Next on our list is the Rosewood located at the edge of the historical centre. It is an iconic resort in San Miguel de Allende and certainly one of the most elegant and sophisticated in town. The spacious rooms are decorated in a classical style and equipped with all the modern comforts. The fine dining is one of the best in San Miguel and the service is absolutely unparalleled. And did we mention the unbeatable views from the rooftop terrace?
3. Hotel Clandestino
The Hotel Clandestino unsurprisingly if the name didn’t give it away is an adults-only property. Situated in an old private house it is one of the best example of colonial architecture. The rooms are eclectic and maintain the original tiled floors and stoned walls. Our favourite part is their rooftop terrace which has amazing views over the cathedral and the entire cityscape.
4. Hotel Nena
Next on our list is another adults only boutique hotel and one of our favourites in town. Small and intimate, the rooms combine vintage pieces with a modern style. The rooftop terrace though is definitely our highlight – a pool with absolutely stunning views of the sunset and the city rooftops.
5. Casa 88
This is a tiny romantic hotel located right in the heart of town. The four poster beds and internal gardens, the stone walls and the delicate decorations create a dream-like, glamorous atmosphere. This hotel is ideal for a couple’s escape.
6. Hacienda Los Amantes
Finally on our list is this spectacular hacienda which has been turned into an exquisite hotel whilst conserving the old structure and charm. It feels like a fairy tale when you walk into this magical property. The private rooms are elegantly decorated to guarantee the maximum comfort and elegance, offering also a stunning view over the city from the terrace. The hotel is in fact strategically located on a hill on the way to the city’s famous view point which allows breathtaking views over the cityscape. The common space is surrounded by a lush vegetation which together with the soft lights creates an enchanting atmosphere, especially at night.
