Hotel Posada las Campanas: Pleasant hotel close to the center

My husband and I stayed at this clean, comfortable hotel conveniently located just two blocks from Dolores Hidalgo's main plaza. Our room had two double beds, a color televison with cable, telephone, good lights for reading, a small closet, and a small, but adequate bathroom. There was plenty of water pressure and plenty of hot water in the shower.

Only six of the hotel's 38 rooms and five suites are located on the first floor. There is no elevator, so you will have to climb stairs to get to your room if the six first-floor rooms are occupied.

There is a terrace on the third floor with a great view of the city and of the Templo de la AsunciĆ³n (designed by Zeferino GutiĆ©rrez, who also designed the parish church in San Miguel de Allende).

The six first-floor rooms face a sunny patio at the back of the hotel (very quiet).

The hotel has an intimate bar off the lobby as well as a restaurant where breakfast is served from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. The restaurant offers a buffet of cereal, juice, milk, fruit, pastries, coffee, and your choice of two entrees for $49 pesos per person.

In addition, the hotel provides purified (bottled) drinking water and wireless internet. The web site indicates there is parking, though we didn't see a parking lot.

We would definitely recommend this hotel to others. It was a good value for the money.

Unique Qualities: The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was more than adequate. Also, the hotel is close to the museums, churches, and market as well as to several artisan shops.
