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 of action in the plaza in front of La Parroquia, so it's nice being close enough to see and experience it. There's almost always something going on.

There is no wifi in the rooms. You have to go to the courtyard in the center of the hotel to get the signal. However, if you ask for room 11, the room in which we stayed, you can open the window, put your computer on the sill, and count five bars, a strong signal, while still in your room. Also, from room 11, you have a nice view of the church tower.

The restaurant serves very good food. It's not complimentary, but it's not expensive. My favorite breakfast there was the fried eggs with chorizo, but all of our breakfasts were good. If you don't like chorizo, try their bacon—it's really good.

The members of the staff are friendly and helpful. All in all, it's a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for room 11 for free in-room wifi and a good view of the church tower.

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 San Miguel de Allende and settled in for a wonderful dining experience. For starters we went with the cactus salad, a beautifully prepared cheese plate consisting of goat, manchego, blue cheese, generous thinly sliced serrano ham circling enough guacomole for three people. I love a good cheese plate! For dinner my wife's green chile enchiladas were expertly prepared with a sauce to die for. Our daughter is a vegetarian for which the staff prepared a nice bowl of spaghetti noodles with a butter sauce. The service was what it was months ago, excellent. This hotel restaurant has a seasoned, well trained wait staff who intuitiely know when to spring into action, well done. Truly one of the best meals we had during the week. For dessert I snuck off to the cigar store for a Cuban Cohibi, life is good. Highly recommended. I do agree the hotel may be a bit noisy with the seemingly constant ringing of nearby church bells.

Room Tip: We did not stay, but I will offer, try the cheese plate

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 a few table occupied so the service should have been great). Their home made bread was delicious and our salads were delicious and very fresh. Hard to imagine how some of the comments are not complimentary given our wonderful experience there on a Wednesday evening.

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 the cathedral. The only problem was the noise from the bells, but you'll get used to that.

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, only 1 hair dryer was available but No iron, what a dissapointment.
