San Miguel de Allende looks like an ancient, cobble-stoned mountain town from the street, but once you turn into the Hotel Matilda, you are quickly reminded that modern art and architecture are thriving here. The rooms are sleek and modern and the public spaces are filled with contemporary art. We stayed in the Owner's Suite C, and it was worth...

Dear Revcaf: You discovered an insider’s secret on your recent visit: our Owner’s Suite and its beautiful terrace is the ideal location to relax and enjoy sunsets, twinkling lights and starlit skies over San Miguel.

Hotel Matilda is beautiful. Wonderful artwork, comfortable beds, very modern, delicious breakfast, lovely setting. A moderate walk to the main square of the city and the restaurants, shops, galleries, etc. located in that part of the city. A little farther on, you will find the artisans' market, food market, etc. Walking in the other direction, you are just about one...

We only had breakfast at the hotel. Did not stay there. We were referred by another hotel. It was a very nice breakfast. Excellent. It was nice walking by the kitchen and watching the ladies cook up wonderful variations of Mexican breakfast. I will go back. Always nice to explore new eating places.
