Former Spanish colonial inn turned modern boutique hotel in Guanajuato’s historic city center
The Edelmira Hotel, in central Guanajuato, fuses modern decor with Spanish colonial architecture. In a small interior courtyard, arches, columns and walls inlaid with stone hark back to the city’s roots as a 16th-century fortress. Parquet floors and a sedate color scheme in the common areas complement cherrywood floors covered with wool rugs and oversize chairs covered in cowhide. And on the rooftop terrace, you can sip sundowners in a teal Acapulco chair at a wooden table while overlooking the city center and surrounding rugged canyon terrain.
Bed and Bath
The 27 guestrooms juxtapose views of Guanajuato’s historical house-specked hills with Midcentury Modern decor. Exposed stone walls blend with vintage gold-framed mirrors, petite glass pendant lamps and striped wood headboards. Meanwhile, floral and taupe loungers, hand-loomed geometric rugs and throw pillows with playful damask prints add modern zing. Although small, each marble bathroom has a frosted glass shower with powerful jets and boutique bath amenities.
A free breakfast spread of bottomless coffee, fresh seasonal fruit and made-to-order eggs is offered on the airy rooftop terrace, where cocktails are also served at sundown. Three stories below, feast on lunch and dinner of international dishes, in the courtyard or the lounge-like restaurant. A strategically placed stairway connects the guestrooms to the basement spa, which has a single treatment room and a small indoor pool and Jacuzzi.
