TravelPod Member ReviewsQuinta Las Alondras Hotel Guanajuato
Quinta las Alondras was a great hotel--we wouldn't even have known it's 11 years old if we hadn't asked. Staff were very welcoming; even when we arrived at nearly 9pm, the porter and front desk clerk were very helpful. Our first impression of the hotel was that it had a really cool ambience, like an old castle as we walked toward the room. During the evening, motion lights would activate as we walked the corridor. The room also felt very castle-like--clean and spacious, a welcome sight after two long travel days. We found the wait staff in the restaurant to be very friendly and professional, patiently indulging every menu and cultural inquiry we directed their way. We ate many breakfasts and dinners there, very good food. Even in January/February, it was warm enough to sit beside the pool in the afternoons (though not swim). Many services, such as box lunches for excursions and laundry service, were available upon request at the concierge, just not visibly advertised around the facilities. Don't be afraid to ask! A few suggestions for the management--provide a bath mat in the room and drinking water in the gym. The hot tub at the gym was not filled and would have been a very nice amenity to use. Instructions for the wall heater unit in the room would be helpful, as we pulled them up online to figure out usage. The secure on-site parking was wonderful.

Our first day exploring Guanajuato, we drove our little Chevy Matiz rental car just to the fringes of the downtown area, then ditched it in favor of navigating the winding cobblestone streets on foot. Driving in Guanajuato can be a bit stressful until one is accustomed to it. Many streets are unmarked, and the system of traffic roundabouts and …
... Teatro Juarez, a fabulous opera house claimed to be superior to the Palace of Fine Arts in Mexico City. That claim was not hard to believe. It truly was amazing.
As part of the tour organized by our Caravan, we had a wonderful lunch in a posh restaurant in the city center. After lunch we wandered through the narrow streets where there were shops of good quality ceramics and other Mexican crafts. We ended ...
... dinner. We were a tad skeptical about the place but decided to embrace the true Mexican feel of it. The food was delicious and cost about $6 each including a beer. Guanajuato was an incredible little town and being there for less than 24hrs probably wasn't enough but as I've said, we were dying for the beach! After a quick morning run and breakfast we headed back to the bus station (using our Spanish), to get a bus to Puebla, as a pitstop on our way to Puerto ...
... flights, we were to contact Donna, back in Guanajuato, and she was going to get her mom to come pick us up so we'd have a place to spend the night. It's good to have friends all over the country!
Well, so ends my second, and last, full summer in Guanajuato. Next summer will just be three weeks of classes, and though it's an insanely intense program, we do somehow find time to enjoy our time there at least a little, and I'm kinda sad that I only have three weeks left.
... explored the beautiful city, and all was well in my world again. Guess who got up extra early this morning to steal some water before everyone else did?!
We headed out after breakfast, parked Michael at a cafe and Mum & I hit the shops just outside the plaza. Found some great buys in a boutique store and a large silver jewellery shop just across the road. I think we probably spent $1000 pesos each (just under $100 AUD).
As we headed back to ...
