... phone, and Maria Elena and I dropped my purchases off at my house before heading out again.
On the way, we made a little stop--at a stranger's house. Maria Elena's searching for a summer house and one she had her eye on last summer was now purchased. However, the door was open so she knocked and asked if we could have a look around! The guy was very nice, giving us a tour and explaining what they had fixed up and changed in the ...
... everyone and then I mentioned I was going to meet up with my friends if he wanted to come along and start meeting people. He did, what a trooper! We went to Botellita, a staple for some students last year (I think I'd only been there once), and was happy to see Zoe, another girl from the program that I hadn't seen yet, was there. When I first arrived there, I had the nice experience of feeling like a "local." Zoe studied in Guanajuato as ...

Well, let's see what else happened this week. Well, one day I had the living daylights scared out of me. I was talking with Rebeca in the kitchen, but I was on my way ...

Anyway, I got my picture taken for my ID, was given a little tour of the campus, and then was given my bill so I know how much to pay for my room and board.
Back home, I did some more work for class, accompanied by some music Rebeca put on. It was ...

It took me a while to get to the top following the traffic route but a kindly shopkeeper with no forearms showed me a quicker way to get back down into the centro. So I meandered my way between the maze of colourful houses greeting the locals who were sat in their doorways, hanging their laundry or kids playing with their dogs. I met a few little old ladies climbing those hills as they probably do every day. They really put me to shame, I really need ...

Historical Traveler Reviews La Casa de Dona Ana Guanajuato
Felt like home
We stayed 3 days in Guanajuato towards the end of November 2007. Our stay with Ana and Mike at "La Casa de Dona Ana" was the highlight of our trip to Mexico. They were the perfect hosts making us feel like family. Ana accomodated my request for vegetarian food and went out of her way to find breakfast options for me. The house and the decor is absolutely beautiful. Comfortable beds, clean surroundings, tasty breakfasts with fresh fruit, delightful conversation and company, located within walking distance to all the attractions in Guanajuato and free internet. What more can one ask for? We'll be back to stay with Mike and Ana.
From the moment Mike and Ana welcomed us at the door we knew we had come to the right place. Centrally located, beautifully decorated and a fantastic rooftop view. Our conversations, over the delicious and plentiful breakfasts, were memorable. Having bilingual hosts made all the difference. Every convenience was supplied including internet. We stayed in the Mariachi Room with its colorful textiles, furniture and decor. The bed was extremely comfortable, and we enjoyed the sounds of neighborhood life going on outside our window. The December weather was perfect and we thoroughly enjoyed watching the Christmas season come alive. The vibrant cultural scene was a delight. We attended concerts, lectures, movies and visited many museums. Restaurants were excellent (try El Abue for sure). We had only one problem--our visit was only five days! We look forward to a longer visit next time now that we have found our home away from home in the magical city of Guanajuato.
Staying here really is a chance to live in a wonderfully renovated property in a neighborhood so close to all of Guanajuato's sights and yet have your privacy as well with the attention of very friendly and welcoming hosts. Both Ana and Mike are attentive as innkeepers and friendly as breakfast companions. Staying the 3 nights after Thanksgiving I was even invited to join them and friends of theirs for a turkey dinner along with wonderful conversation. You will be delighted with the attention to detail and decoration throughout the house. The comfortable bed and quality linens in the bedroom and bath were so appreciated. If asked, it might be impossible to say if the location, comfort or friendliness and professionalism of the hosts is what makes this my choice for my next stay in this favorite colonial city in Mexico.
Could not have asked for more!
Dona and Mike were fine hosts.The've worked hard to make this place as comfortable and welcoming as can be,and it is.
It will always be our place to stay inGuanajuato!

I spent five days at La Casa de Dona Ana during November, 2007, taking an impromptu solo vacation. It is difficult to write a review because I feel more inclined to write a thank you note to Ana and Mike for their hospitality. This is a special place and they are special people.
My husband and I stayed 3 nights at Casa de Dona Ana in mid-November. Our lodging experience was splendid! ... Casa de Dona Ana met our most important lodging factors.
Want to be part of the family?
A really lovely family home with so much charm and attention to detail.The house is decorated in a beautiful way from the metal painted signs in the hallways, to the locally produced pottery which adorns the kitchen, you can see that this is more than a business, it is a labour of love. Anna and Mike make you feel at home from the moment you enter there home and are super accommodating!
Breakfasts are also a real treat!! I would recomend this as a place to stay to any of my friends and family without hesitation!
Wonderful Casa Alhondiga
We stayed at Casa Alhondija which is a rental house in conjunction with the bed and breakfast. It is a lovely remodeled Mexican home on the hillside. Mike and Ana, our hosts, went out of their way to make it comfortable for us. We were traveling with an infant and they supplied a sterlizer and baby detergent just for our visit. The
casa has all the amenities of a home away from home. We will definitely be back thanks to having such a great time. Loved the town
and great view from the Casa.

A truly charming B&B in a truly charming city. The B&B has just been remodeled and beautifully done, and captures the feel of this wonderful city. Mike and Ana are wonderful hosts and really go out of their way to not only make their guests comfortable but also to help their quests enjoy Guanajuato. Great experience. Wyatt Fender
