We are sure you will be delighted with the accommodations and facilities! Casa de la Noche *is a former bordello steeped in history with the energy from the artists and musicians who passed through there in the 40’s and 50’s.
Today, owner Barbara Poole has been running the boutique hotel as a B&B and top notch event space for 20 years.
Being an artist herself, the hotel reflects
her creative, eclectic sensibility. The
colorful and well-appointed rooms and
courtyards create a sense of old
world discovery but with all the modern
conveniences. It’s proximity to centro is a mere few
blocks making it a super convenient and easy home
base from which to explore San Miguel.
*Note: the hotel does not have an elevator.
