TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Frances Baja California
Lovely old clapboard building dating from late 19th century with verandas and rocking chairs and wonderful views. Reception and dining room reflect that era. Also a pool in the central courtyard. And an old steam engine outside. An easy walk into the town centre.
However, the wooden floors creak horribly, so no silent sneaking to the bathroom in the middle of the night.

... very elegant and well appointed. However, we weren't sure about the painting of the Archangel Michael subduing (or slaying) a demon/the devil just above our bed. We spent the rest of the afternoon wandering around town. Querétaro is a beautiful colonial city. It's centre is made up of a series of expansive plazas connected by quaint walkways. These plazas are filled with ornate bandstands and pristine trees in the shapes of umbrellas or ...
We bussed from the Queretaro bus station to our hostel, dropped off our things, then went out for some late night tacos. Absolutely delicious. I don't think Mexican tacos could ever get old. Then we fell asleep. In our dorm room...not at the taco stand. Our hostel, the Blue Bicycle, is run by three middle-aged women and is spotless. There is a terrace overlooking the city, hot showers, towels, a delicious breakfast, ...
... events, day-to-day life – in other words, "magic" in its social and cultural manifestations, with great opportunities for tourism. On Thursday, we decided to see this monlith up close,so we took a 50 minute bus ride to Bernal to see what was so special about it.
We walked around the quiet town which apparently fills up with tourists
on the weekends, and is not so quiet, and enjoyed peeking in the cute
shops, hotels, houses and restaurants. ...
