wheels, taxis and buses are cheap... walking is interesting, too. Hotel Las Embajadoras,
Hotel Los Cobos, Hotel Abadia (check prices.. they vary), Mision del Rosario (near the
heart of town, can sometimes be alittle noisey), Hotel Paseo de la Presa (overlooks
city on the Panoramica (haven't checked prices lately), Quinta Las Acacias, Meson
de las Poetas is nice (check current prices). A couple on the close outskirts with
nice views are Hotel Guanajuato and Villa de la Plata. There are many hotels here,
most of which have websites and emails. Others could well fit your bill but I know
some about the above.
I would suggest that you avoid those around the Jardin in the center near the
Teatro Juarez... they are nice, usually expensive, loud, and the food is so-so at best.
B&B's are fairly high here, we have a friend who has B&B (more like good room and
board) who usually houses foreign students of all ages (she is frequently booked
but very worthwile to try, plus speaks English)-- Graciela Villasenor at 473-731-0183.
There are good restaurants in the centro area .. try Casa Valdez, Truco 7, El Gallo
Pitagorico, Also Campo Viejo in Marfil, Pulpo Loco (seafood just outside of Marfil), La
Esperanza (in Valenciana), Los Agaves, Casa del Conde de la Valenciana (top notch
in Valenciana across from the cathedral), Refugio Casa Colorado overlooking the city,
and we even have a Brazilian restaurant which is outstanding but very expensive
across from our castle/hotel. Enjoy...
