Posada Carmina Hotel
Reviewed 17 October 2016

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 weather in SMA, it is not necessary at all. Wi-Fi access is only in the restaurant area.

Room Tip: Colonial rooms are located on the front side of the building, and modern rooms are located in the ba...

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 recommend choosing another hotel for the same price even if it is not so close to the church like this one.

Pros - Awesome location, spacious rooms,lovely courtyard
Cons - next door to main Church - bells start ringing around 4:30 am and ring every 15 minutes or more. No wooden doors to block noise, No AC and ceiling fan did not work (really warm at night), Wi-Fi - had to step out of room onto courtyard. PS asked for hair blower and advised only one in the hotel:) really?

Room Tip: Request room w/ working fan, wooden shutters to block noise

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
