There are many good points about the hotel. It is in a good location, has awesome staff, is clean and well kept, has hot water, spacious rooms, parking, and good wifi. The biggest negative is the beds. They are the traditional Mexico double and are very hard.

I arrived to self park my car in the sizable secured parking area.
Reception staff were prompt and helpful....as we were on a late arrival and very early departure schedule during a business stopover we didn't try the restaurant facilities.
My room was clean and the bed comfortable but it and the bathroom in my opinion are overdue refurbishing.
This hotel has a pleasant feel of faded elegance and is located in what is a lovely town.

My father, my sister and I were here to celebrate sisters bday, staff helped my father to surprise my sister decorating the master suit, which by the way has a great view and cozy decoration.
The pool is amazing, you can have great relaxing time over there. I've been here 3 times, last one was with the boyfriend and as a romantic hotel maybe next time I would pick other, for families is perfect.
Perfect for me

I have nothing but praise for my five-day stay at Hotel Real de Minas in Guanajuato in February 2016. My room was on the third floor facing the street. I had a narrow, but adequate balcony for 1-2 people. The view from the balcony was limited; however, I have read other reviews that the upper floors have much better views of the city, which is especially nice at night when the city lights up. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. It was also quiet, day and night. Granted, it was off-season, so I cannot comment about the noise during peak seasons. The staff could not of have been nicer and more accommodating - from the front desk, to housekeeping, to the restaurant personal. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The selection of appetizers, entrées, and desserts is ample, and the food is delicious, My only reason for giving 4 stars is that the location is a bit far from the center of town (about 15-20 minutes on foot), but for someone like me who likes to walk, it's fine. I would most definitely stay at this hotel again.
Gloomy room, and way out of town

The first disappointment with this hotel was that it was so far away from Guanjuato's main attractions - the centro historico, shops, restaurants. If you didn't want to pay for a taxi every time you went somewhere, then you had to walk over a kilometre each way along a highway.
My other problem with this hotel was that it's not very well-maintained. One of the couples on the tour I was on had a blocked sink when they arrived. This was promptly fixed, unlike the problem I had with my room, which was that only three of the six lights actually worked. This was a problem because the bulbs were of such low wattage that even the fully-lit rooms were gloomy.
When I asked someone to come and fix the lights, the guy they sent up turned on the (non-functioning) light switch with a flourish, as if to say "See, it works!" It didn't. He replaced one of the three light bulbs. When I asked about the others, his reply was "mañana". Mañana came and went and my other lights were never replaced. This meant that the only place I could have read without eye strain was in the bathroom.
