It is top location in GTO. Unfortunately, unbearably NOISE until 3 AM. Simple, you can't sleep before 3AM. WIFI spoty, rooms not much to offer except amazing location. Hotel stuff is good. They try to accommodate your wishes. It is a pity that this great location doesn't have more peaceful time after midnight.

Hotel San Diego is at the heart of downtown Guanajuato.
