Great Perks, Amazing Staff, Breathtaking Views.

Without a doubt, Balcon del Cielo is a great option if you decide to visit Guanajuato. The views are breathtaking, the staff is very friendly, and the beds are comfortable. With your stay you get unlimited acccess to the furnicular (which also comes with priority boarding if there's a line). I'd suggest choosing the breakfast option if you're able to. Breakfast at Valadez was incredible! If you're traveling with a group, be mindful that the bathroom is not completely separate from the bedroom. There is a glass door that separates them both. It wasn't a deal breaker as we were just two guests but it would have been an interesting situation if there three or more in the room. Overall, the perks, staff, and view make Balcon del Cielo a great choice if you find yourself in beautiful Guanajuato.

We LOVED Balcon del Cielo. There were many things that made our stay unique and the hotel far exceeded our expectations. The hotel is, as described, situated above the town with an incredible view of the city. You do have to ride the funicular to get to/from town but this is easy-peasy as the hotel provides a card for you to use to ride for free, there are rarely lines, the funicular is a very short trip, and it deposits you directly into the center of town and also right in front of the hotel. Cabs can also easily get you to/from the hotel and you just take a few steps down to get to the hotel. The free breakfast is served at a restaurant near the base of the funicular and it is essentially a 3-course meal in a really nice restaurant-- we were blown away! Every day we were stuffed after eating there. Coffee, juice, an assortment of breads and salsas, as well as a large choice of main dishes. It was fantastic and we weren't expecting anything so nice. The staff are incredibly friendly and our hotel was cleaned each day with far more care than I've experienced elsewhere. One thing that took us a while to figure out was the hot water in the shower, but that's because the two knobs are situated vertical and the bottom knob is for hot water. It can get VERY hot, so no worries, you will have plenty! I highly, HIGHLY recommend this hotel!

First off I want to say I will definitely stay here again. The staff was super friendly and helpful with tour suggestions, we were also able to purchase tours with them. The room we got had a terrace, located on the first floor, literally behind reception, it’s a small hotel but very clean and mostly quiet. You can hear people walking around and talking here and there but compared to how loud the city itself is at night, it didn’t bother me at all. I read other reviews that said the funicular was very loud, but honestly I didn’t hear it at all, and I was able to sleep all night very comfortably. Im glad I chose staying up on that hill rather than down below, I could hear the hustle and bustle from my terrace, so I can’t imagine how loud it must of been for people staying at the bottom of the hill. Speaking of the funicular, we were given passes of unlimited use for the funicular, which was very convenient, plus if there’s a long line you get priority, which came in handy on our last day, there was a long line to get back up the hill, but we were able to walk right up to the front. If you miss the last ride going up, don’t worry, there’s stairs, and they’re not bad. Included was daily breakfast discount at the restaurant Casa Valadez, and let me tell you, I was blown away by how good the food was and how big the portions were, it’s located just at the bottom of the funicular, in front of the Teatro Juarez. I will visit again, and this hotel will be my first choice.
