Where To Stay in San Miguel de Allende

San Miguel de Allende has its fair share of luxury and boutique hotels although recently there are some budget options located outside of the historical center proper. However, in my opinion, the best accommodation in San Miguel de Allende can be found on the hills that surround the city thanks to the panoramic view one can have from up there.

During my most recent stay in San Miguel de Allende (January 2019), I was kindly hosted at Casa Angelitos, the best boutique hotel in San Miguel de Allende. Located on a panoramic hill, this hotel will delight you with its views of the city, its charming decoration, and yes, the amazing hospitality of the owners and the staff.

You can make a booking for this and more properties via our Booking.com Affiliate Link of Wonders ! Same price for you and a small commission for this website of yours. Sweet deal, right?
