Posada Carmina Hotel
Reviewed 1 October 2017

OK, this is the epitome of the quaint, old, low-tech property. Charming, and I would have loved to give it a 5-star review, just because I am that kind of a guy, but, the noise Saturday night in the "back rooms" was intolerable until very, very late (early?)
The restaurant in front does not belong to the hotel, you go down the maze to have a very good breakfast that was included in our plan. I would have overlooked the worn out bed, and similar issues because the staff could not have been any more gracious, but I would not consider this hotel ever again. Shame, because it is literally the best location in town.

Room Tip: Maybe if you get a room in the "front."

Posada Carmina is few steps from the central square and La Parroquia. It has extremely easy access to all the main areas of downtown San Miguel de Allende (SMA). Hotel is over 150 years old and the central courtyard is a pleasant place for meals or drinks. It does not have the usual 5 star amenities, just the basics.

What makes this a really great or bad choice is whether you like nightlife or not. The side street, Cuna de Allende, is home to or very near to several of the best rooftop restaurants, bars, and nightclubs in the city, with music and dancing on Fridays and Saturdays lasting until 1 AM. In El Jardin (the main square) mariachi bands also play into early morning. If you like the music, as I do, it's the best place to stay in SMA for proximity to the attractions and shopping . If you want to go to bed by 10, try another.

Reasonably priced with an excellent breakfast included. Comfortable yet simple. Hot water works quickly. Clean and neat with a staff that is helpful and friendly.

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
