      Historical Traveler Reviews El Zopilote Mojado Guanajuato

      Very nice!

      from

      This bed-and-breakfast appartment (three guest rooms) is located in the city centre of Guanajuato, but far away from the noise. The nice building is overlooking one of the beautiful small plazas in Guanajuato.

      The rooms are decorated individually and the guests can use the recreation area at the top of the small house (beautiful view of the city) and one can also use the well equiped kitchen.

      The owner of this BaB has been very friendly and helpful.

      The only negative thing has been the big cockroach, who lived in the bathroom ... mexican style. I guess we had bad luck, because the whole building has been very clean.

      We are so sorry about the cockroach! We have seen an increase in the critters we think because of the construction in and around our plaza that involves updating the drainage systems underneath the city. We are fumigating frequently and are more than willing to hunt down the offending insects for our guests. We will increase our vigilance!

      We hope to have you back once all of the work is finished!

      Delivered as promised

      from

      After much research and suggestions of Tripadvisor users we booked directly.

      Mr. Galarza had someone pick us up and drive us to the airport. Service is third party and is worth it. $30 dollars each way. Appreciated him so much we gave him $40.

      The blue room was quaint. Layout is funky because you step into the bathroom hall then thhrough another door is the actual room.

      Linens were fresh and we arrived at about 6am and it was heavenly. When reserving I had requested a massage. 4pm Cleotil was there. It was great. Don't remember the price.

      Trini and Ana (EZM employees) were very nice and would serve up the best breakfast and coffee. Special is $40 pesos includes coffee, toast or quesadillas, eggs and a fresh smoothie. LOVED IT! Always fresh.

      I will miss my lattes and cake in the evening. There are also delicious baguettes and salads. Turkey baguette is delicious.

      Took a (8 hour) tour of Dolores Hidalgo, Atotonilco and SMA for $20. My only complaint is that the tour ends at Alhondiga not mentioned when booked. Guide was upset that we had questioned him and wanted us to just get back in the van but his attitude was poor and needless to say no tip for him. We walked back.

      There is no need for a rental car everything can be reached by foot if not take the bus it's 4 pesos each person. We found everyone to be helpful.

      Affordable and rich in culture. This trip blew my mind.

      Great Place, Great Location

      from

      El Zopilote Mojado is a great place to stay in Guanjuato! The hotel is extremely clean, has a lovely terrace with views of Guanajuato, friendly staff, and big rooms with clean linens. The restaurant downstairs has great food for those weary of tradicional mexican food (sandwiches, salads, bruchetta) and great coffee, not to mention wireless internet access for guests. The owner speaks both English and Spanish. It is located just a short block away from the main plaza, so it is more quiet than the other hotels in the area. The price is just right too!

      Not just a vacation but a retreat and a piece of paradise

      from

      I have just returned from a glorious 10 days in guanajuato. Through tripadvisor, I found El Zopilote Mojado, a charming, warm and welcoming home away from home. I was traveling alone and needed a vacation and a retreat. I found both at raul and ana's delightful inn? bed and breakfast? It's difficult to describe because they satisfy needs you didn't even anticipate. A good book to read? A patio for early evening drinks and conversation? Views of the city that are glorious at all hours of the day? Delicious food in a charming cafe?

      The "inn" (but actually 2 homes with another being renovated) is located next to an irrestible plazuela -- where children play ball at recess and if it comes your way, they'll yell pelote! and it's your turn to kick it back. My "home" was close to the heart of the city which allowed me afternoon naps and longer evenings. I wandered through all of the tiny alleys of the city, people wishing me a buenas tardes as they passed...frequently getting lost, always someone to head me back toward el centro... I've traveled in other mexican cities and loved them, but at El Zopilote Mojado I found comfort, friends and a unique opportunity to experience, for a few days, a Mexican lifestyle in one of it's finest cities.

      Lovely little place

      from

      We spent 3 nights in Guanajuato in March. We liked this place a lot- very clean, nice size rooms...

      Unfortunately, Raul and his wife went on vacation the day after we arrived and the help does not speak English- so we didn't get all the help we would have liked and expected; however, I highly highly recommend this place to anyone staying in Guanajuato

      Fantastic place to stay

      from

      We just got back from a trip to Guanajuato, and I wanted to recommend El Zopilote Mojado as a fantastic place to stay. The rooms were very nice, and the added bonus of having a terrace with a gorgeous view, a living room, and a kitchen made it an incredible deal. The breakfasts at the Cafe d'Art were only $4, but included a wonderful fruit smoothie, along with the full breakfast. The only thing that I could possibly complain about was the little man that went around yelling "Pan" over and over in the morning. But in retrospect, it added some humor and fun memories to the trip.

      Great place to stay

      from

      We stayed here 3 nights in November 2005. It was fantastic. Just around the corner from the Jardin. Very comfortable peaceful and tasteful decor with great beds. Nice roof deck with view. The proprietors pay close attention to detail. The food, coffee and tea downstairs are great.

      Loved the Zopilote

      from

      We stayed for four nights in February and loved this place. Everything was right, the location, the view, the furnishings and the coffee downstairs.

      El Zopilote Mojado--The best place to stay in Guanajuato

      from

      We just returned from a 5-day visit to Guanajuato, Mexico. We stayed at El Zopilote Mojado,a small charming inn located only a block from the Jardin de la Union, a brief walk through a scenic narrow stair-step alley way. The inn is owned and run by Sr. Raul Galarza,who made sure that everything ran smoothly from the airport shuttle arrangements to the lovely appointed room. There are two suites: one consists of a large bedroom with tons of closet space, a large private bath, and a private sitting room. The other consists of 2 bedrooms (also with great closet space), large bath & sitting room. Be sure to check out the gallery to see details of the rooms available. My husband and I had one suite and my sister the other, so we had the entire upstairs to ourselves. The inn is within walking distance to the museums, churches, and shopping, yet very quiet. A limited menu is available at the cafe, but it includes a large beer and wine selection. Interesting conversation with the proprietor and other guests comes with the territory, so be prepared to enjoy some good coffee, good conversation, and a charming location as you explore the beauty of Guanajuato from El Zopilote Mojado. Highly recommended.

      I decided to go back to Lucy's house about an hour before it got dark. Lucy wasn't home so I had to wait about 30 minutes for her to get back. It was fine but then a ...

      Unfortunately, jolly friendly doesn’t always mean massively interesting, especially with my uber short attention span. I felt on my brief morning walk, I’d managed to cover pretty much all the main sights, and that ...

      ... by just looking at the city's architecture.


      In 1988, Guanajuato became a UNESCO World heritage site. It retains its colonial charm and is a wonderful place to walk around. So much to see and experience in this city.We arrived at our small, clean and well-located hotel, Meson Cuevano, in Guanajuato after a 2 1/2 hour bus ride from Queretaro. Immediately we took to the streets, recalling the last time that we had been in the city, 13 years ago, during its famous ...
