Wonderful location next to La Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel and half a block from El Jardin. The restaurant inside Posada Carmina is one of the best I've ever tried in SMA, and the Casa del Habano (inside hotel) is a great place to visit for cigar aficionados like my husband. Rooms do not have AC, but with the lovely...

I'll keep it simple. The hotel does not have, internet, hot water, furniture for clothes, air conditioner, hair dryer and hair conditioner. The parking option is really painful and expensive. The only good aspect of this hotel is its location. But you are in San Miguel de Allende, walking is a really important part of the visit. So I really...

Across the street from the majestic church, La Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel, Hotel Posada Carmina is where the action is. Our room, overlooking the hotel's beautiful courtyard with fountain, was comfortable, clean, and quaint. Being across from the church, the bells are fairly prominent, but they add to the atmosphere and are not loud at night. There's a lot...

Having had a wonderful breakfast under the white linen parasols 18 months ago we spent week in search of this seeminly elusive hotel restaurant. My recollections were parasols, chirping birds, trees, an open courtyard and a cigar shop tucked away on the back side of the dining area. By pure luck we found it very near the largest cathedral in...

My wife and I accidently cam upon the restaurant at the Posada Carmina Hotel while walking around the Jardin and has a wonderful and romantic dinner in their open courtyard. The orange trees were blooming so the air was fragant with the sweet smell of orange blossoms, the food was excellent and the service was very good (there were only...

It's a great hotel, considering it's and old posada and the whole idea is to have the rural experience. The rooms are clean, kind of a small. The restaurant downstairs has delicious breakfasts (it's not included) and in the morning you have live music, great experience when you're just getting up. It's location is excellent, right by the plaza and...

Great hotel, noise from street can be bothersome. Its a little expensive but the location does not get any better. There is a tour agency behind the hotel. You can get an atv tour, we highly recommend it! No breakfast included, no iron and no hair dryer in room. We had to ask for a hair dryer and an iron,...

This Colonial restored house from the 18th century, with a great location only a few steps from the main square and main church. If you stay at the Posada de Carmina, you're in for treat. Great location, delicious breakfast, nice cigar store and best of all an orange tree planted right in the center of the house, ready for you...

Posada Carmina is very conveniently located just across the street from the cathedral, right in the middle of San Miguel Allende. If you like to walk it is a great place to stay and not use the car. It is cozy and clean, but definitely not trendy. I love the old house and the patio. No pool. I would not...
