Bottom Line

The two-and-a-half-pearl, 12-room Casa Quetzal Hotel is a well-located and affordable base for travelers exploring San Miguel de Allende. It's just a few blocks from the cathedral and most other attractions within walking distance. The old colonial-style house has some lovely green spaces with plants and outdoor seating, providing plenty of quiet spots to take a break. However, facilities are minimal and there's no restaurant or breakfast service. Plenty of cafes and restaurants can be found nearby. Simply decorated, but charming rooms include flat-screens TVs, mini-fridges, and free Wi-Fi -- but not all have air-conditioning. Some include glass doors that open out onto the patio. Travelers seeking something more elegant might like Casa 1810 Hotel Boutique, which has a rooftop terrace with a chic bar and pool.

Oyster Hotel Review

Casa Quetzal Hotel

Scene

Simple boutique hotel with a classic colonial setting plus green gardens and a quiet atmosphere

Casa Quetzal Hotel is housed in an old Mexican-colonial building on a quiet street away from the noise of the bustling center. From the outside, it looks just like a residential property with a whitewashed facade and old red-brick doorway. On the inside, that home-like vibe is amplified, as a small lounge with steps leads to a beautiful stone patio filled with lush green plants. Winding staircases and pathways lead to more pretty green spaces lined with potted cactai, colorful flowers, and plenty of tranquil seating areas to take a break. With no dining areas, the patios are the only real communal spaces, though most guests are simply seeking a place to throw their bags down and venture out to explore rather than socialize. Most of those staying here are couples, though some families and solo travelers also pass through.

Location

In San Miguel de Allende's historic old town, a five-minute walk to San Miguel Arcangel

The hotel has a convenient location just a few blocks from the iconic Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel cathedral and buzzing main square. This colorful area is brimming with charm and lined with lively cafes and restaurants that are great for people watching. The hotel itself is situated on a quiet cobblestone side street, providing a tranquil respite away from the busy central zone. Attractions within walking distance include the Santa Cruz del Chorro Chapel, Parque Juarez, and the ornate Baroque buildings of Casa del Mayorazgo de la Canal. Ignacio Ramirez Mercado -- a vibrant local market selling food, clothes, flowers, and sundries -- is a 10-minute walk away. The city of Guanajuato is around a hour away by car, while Guanajuato International Airport is roughly a one hour and forty five-minute drive from the hotel.
