We came back to Hotel Matilda just for one day to celebrate my wifes birthday. We think it´s maybe the best place to stay in San Miguel Allende. This time we got a suite and it was downstairs.... what we did not like so much. But in the end the room was sunny and stylish and the service was excellent,...

We really appreciated the time you took to shoot a video and post it on YouTube for others to enjoy. It’s difficult to capture the spirit of Matilda in just one photo – there’s so much to experience, from the art to the ambience. Of course, Matilda is never static; since the art is always changing, there’s always something new...

The Hotel Matilda gave a sparkling head start to a Calle Ocho fiesta on April 26th. From the minute we arrived pretty young ladies with Cuban hats were quick to hand us delicious Mojitos, chocked with fresh mint and not too sugary. The entry to the hotel was highlighted with neon palm trees and pink flamingos made the fountain so...

Dear Sharita: We’re so glad you enjoyed our Calle Ocho fiesta!! We plan many events throughout the year – where gourmet cuisine is paired with upbeat music and exciting art and artists. It’s all part of the Matilda Lifestyle, which is building quite a buzz with the foodie crowd. Check out the SMART festival planned for May 31-June 2. And...

I spend a long weekend in Matilda. And it was perfect, the staff was very friendly and the restaurant is very good, now I know why Chef Olvera is one of the best in Mexico. Very good location just a couple blocks from the main square. Everything was perfect and is exactly what I specked from a luxury boutique hotel....

There’s no better place than San Miguel to spend a long weekend – especially since the continuing array of special events, festivals, music and art events offer some amazing entertainment options. Coming up May 31-June 2 is the second annual SMART (San Miguel ART) festival which will bring together some of the best artists imaginable – and a dance party,...

I have just returned from a weekend visit to San Miguel de Allende. I have been to San Miguel numerous times before, and was looking forward to my first stay at Matilda.

Dear Lytzia: Many frequent visitors to San Miguel are quite surprised to discover Hotel Matilda – certainly, we aren’t a traditional property. In fact, we quite enjoy being a singular oasis of contemporary charm in a colonial city. Afterall, unexpected discoveries are one of travel’s greatest joys.

We’re so glad you took the time to experience all that Hotel Matilda has to offer.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our romantic three night get-away at the Matilda in the center of San Miguel. We spent a lot of time eating at the excellent restaurant and sitting poolside in the lovely San Miguel sunshine. It was a perfect place to slowly enjoy healthy, tasty meals with good wine and to have long, relaxed conversations...

The Matilda is lovely, but the food we had last night never rose above the level of mediocrity. Given the prices, we expected more. The agnolotti pasta was especially disappointing. I was told that the chef was new. "Even worse than the last guy," a local foodie told me.
