Historical Traveler Reviews Casa Estrella de la Valenciana Guanajuato
Heavenly retreating overlooking the city and the mountains
Better than we hoped for. Casa Estrella is elegant and sophisticated and luxurious, yet relaxed and comfortable. Sharon and her staff were always helpful and attentive and gracious. Food and accommodations were world-class. We hope to return soon.
casa estrella is perfect.sharon is a wonderful host,the whole home is very beautiful,the food was gourmet,and the view is out of this world.you will not be unhappy staying here
Excellent-will be back
Guanajuato is a beautiful city, but Casa Estrella de la Valenciana was the highlight of our trip. Our room was immaculate, beautifully furnished, comfortable bed, and with a wonderful view. The service, and amenities were those of a five star resort. We were served a full breakfast daily (delicious). Sharon was a true "host". She made sure we were comfortable and made us feel right at home. We'll definitely plan to visit Guanajuato and will stay at Casa Estrella. I highly recommend it.
A friend told us about Casa Estrella in the (to us) undiscovered city of Guanijuato. Beaufiully appointed and poised as high above the charming city as it could be, this stunning, luxurious inn pampers you between adventures. With great folk art shopping nearby, expansive views, knowledgable, caring staff this small jewel of an inn has become one of our favorite Mexican hideaways from the moment we set foot inside. This place sets new standards for luxury in central Mexico.
Casa Estrella is Wonderful
I just returned from a vacation in Guanajuato (my first visit) and stayed at the Casa Estrella. I am still marvelling at the wonderful time I had.The accomodations at Casa Estrella were five star in my book. The luxurious rooms, the magnificent view overlooking and city, and the friendliness and hospitality offered to the guests were outstanding.I would recommend visiting charming Guanajuato and staying at Casa Estralla. There is so much to see and the people are so friendly.I look forward to my next visit.
Warm and welcoming
I cannot say enough about Casa Estrella, Sharon, Jaye, Blanca and Rosa.
Each room has a spectacular view of the city of Guanajuato. And, after a long day of sightseeing and walking, the linens, bathrobes, and beds were like sleeping on clouds. The breakfasts were excellent, and the fully stocked refrigerator (with sodas, water, great beers) was available for our use day or night. We were treated like one of the family, and , when we left, felt like we were saying goodbye to relatives. The graciousness and warmth with which we were treated will ensure that I go back again.
Delightful and luxurious!
Casa Estrella is simply perfect! Our suite had every thoughtful amenity you could imagine: great bed, linens, robes, bathroom, views! We would definitely stay here again. Sharon and staff were very welcoming and attentive. Bravo!
To stay at Casa Estrella is to live the good life
To spend a night at Casa Estrella is to experience the pampered life.
The inn, built and opened in 2003, is beautifully furnished and its few rooms are well spaced throughout the property, ensuring a lot of privacy. Amenities include a wonderful heated pool and jacuzzi on a stone terrace overlooking the charming city of Guanjuato, and numerous private patios on which to enjoy the over-the-top breakfast and complimentary magaritas and light snacks which your hosts, Sharon and Manny, provide each night. Each suite is equipped with a television and DVD on which to enjoy a movie from the inn's extensive collection, and a refrigerator stocked full of complimentary fruit juice, bottled water and cerveza. All suites have amazing views of the city below. In addition, La Valenciana, the room in which we spent three nights, has its own private outdoor patio and jacuzzi. The service, provided primarily by Manny's Guanajuato nieces, is simply wonderful. One night, after finding out that the restaurant we had planned to go to was closed, "las nietas" whipped up some margaritas, guacamole, tamales and Christmas punch, which was as good as anything we ate in delightful Guanajuato itself (and that says a lot). There is not enough praise that I can bestow upon this inn. When you visit, as you must, please be sure to have your hosts set you up with one of their wonderful associated drivers and guides, especially Javier.
Beautiful inn with gorgeous views of Gto!
This is an exquisite inn that combines the best of Mexican charm with all the comforts you could want when traveling. We stayed in the Valenciana room, which is spacious and completely deluxe (including a private patio with a jacuzzi). The common areas are lovely and comfortable, providing the right atmosphere to relax, which is especially nice after a day of walking around (and up & down) in the town. There are interesting shops near by, as well as the Valenciana cathedral, but you'll want to take a cab into the city center (cabs are cheap). Very satisfying stay.
Casa Estrella was so romantic!
The brochures and the website were nice enough but they did not prepare me for the wonderful time I had at Casa Estrella. This place is beautiful and very well appointed with leather couches and hand-hewn furniture. All of their rooms, including their kitchen, were filled with native crafts and artwork. At night, my boyfriend and I would walk up to their rooftop balcony and spend the evening with a bottle of wine and a view of Guanjuato.
The prices were very reasonable so we rented the best room available which not only had a private balcony overlooking the city, but it also had a private hot tub! I think we spent quite a bit of time in our private jacuzzi. Lots of fun, but I'll skimp on the details... :-)
Of course we also travelled down the hill into town and shopped our wallets off. I think we brought back at least four full boxes of stuff.
Go to Casa Estrella! You might see me there -- my boyfriend and I are definitely going back! ! !

The traffic in was madness (damn you Semana Santa...wait...I'm I going to hell for saying that?), especially since a lot of it was in roughly carved out tunnels that went under the city center, with underground intersections and all.
