Great value and a really nice place
I really wanted a place near the Presa de Olla because of the beauty of the dam and the parks nearby. I wasn't disappointed in any of that, nor in this casita. Veronique, the owner, was very eager to make sure everything was in place and worked properly. Everything I needed was there. The Wifi had a repeater problem which we got sorted out, mostly because of her calling tech support. There isn't a bad thing to say about the casita. The bed was comfortable, and the kitchenette was well supplied with dishes, utensils, and pans. Seriously, for the money you can't beat it. I was planning on staying in town longer, and Veronique was even going to help me find a larger place, but I found one before she could lend a hand. I walked into the Centro every day (about a mile), and it was about as flat a walk as exists in Guanajuato. It is a very nice walk. The Mercado Embajadores is on the way, and so is the Parque Embajadores, where there are some excellent kiosk with really good street food. There are also sit-downs behind the mercado which are also excellent. Gto is a city where walking is more efficient than vehicles, but it is easy to get to the Centro via cab (35 pesos) or bus (5 pesos). The buses are very frequent; you don't have to wait more than five minutes or so. Catch any bus that says "Presa" and "Centro". This is one beautiful town and this casita is a good way to start on a longer stay or a good one for a short visit. The area is really, really quiet at night, too, and with the cool nights I slept like a baby. This is also VERY accessible to both the airport and the main bus station, being only a block east from where the 2-year-old Acceso Diego Rivera highway and tunnel comes out into town. Veronique is also reopening her El Midi French restaurant in town around the 11th of October, off the back of Plaza Baratillo, one of the nicest plazas in a town of many nice plazas.
Tourists without a Car,
