Even before we were shown our room, we loved Daina as she picked us up at the bus station and rattled along the cobbled streets of San Miguel to her house. She was so enthusiastic and helpful. Our large upstairs room and sunny roof-top veranda were basic, but perfect for us, and Daina was so accommodating. We even had the use of her small kitchen, where we could boil up water for our 'essential' cup of British tea every morning, and then pick up mail on her strong WiFi connection. What more could we need to start our day! During our 2 weeks with Daina we enjoyed her home, as well as her Italian Mama's sense of humour, and Daina told us where to find the best soups, jazz, theatres and galleries. A truly memorable stay in SMA, and we'll definitely be back...
Enjoyed my stay at Daina's. Very private room with bath and terrace. Quiet street, good location close to the center. Wonderful to have access to a washer and terrace for solar drying! Near Via Organica, a good place nearby to eat!
La habitación es sencilla, limpia y confortable justo lo que estábamos buscando para conocer (website hidden) encuentra cerca del mercado de artesanías donde también encuentras fondas con comida rica y económica. Tomamos un tour en un tranvía para conocer las leyendas del pueblo. Y posteriormente en nuestra estancia caminamos para conocer tiendas, galerías, iglesias etc.
Daina es una persona muy cálida y amable nos ofreció orientación, nos otorgo un mapa u nos sugirió lugares para visitar.
Pasamos una estancia muy agradable y después de caminar tanto no había nada más confortable que la recámara.
Muchas gracias por la hospitalidad Daina.
We loved the location of this place....an easy walk into town with a variety of good local eating places. Daina is a warm, friendly and extremely interesting person. She was also extraordinarily helpful on our first day in assisting us to get from the bus station to a concert where we we had arranged to meet our friends. Wouldn't hesitate to return if I was in SM again. Fred
What a great place to be. Daina's home is extremely comfortable,the room is upstairs with a private bathroom and a terrace to enjoy a nice breakfast in the morning or beer in the afternoon. Daina was a great host,full of good advice about places to eat in San Miguel de Allende. The cinema we went to with her was a very good experience. Thanks a lot to make our journey marvellous. We hope to see you again before we leave Mexico.

Excellent bargain, clean, quiet lodging in a great location. Daina is a lovely person. Thanks for everything!
thankyou Debbie! It was equal pleasure having you too.... I'm sure tha if we had the chance and time to know each other more we would have become good friends! Thank so much for the beautiful and unexpected card and...surprise! You shouldn't but... it was a blessing anyway, so Thank you! Hope to see you soon, blessings in your travels. Arrivederci! Daina
Daina is a fabulous host. I really felt like I was staying with a friend. The room and bath are simple but comfortable and very private. Daina made sure that I had everytihng that I needed. She's a fantastic cook and often had little suprises like chocolate pancakes for breakfast one morning and a homemade tiramasu one evening.
I would definitely recommend staying with Daina on a visit to San Miguel. I know that I'll be back.
Staying with Daina was a true pleasure!!! The room and bathroom was private, clean and simple....which is all we wanted and needed. What we didn't expect and was grateful for, was the gracious and friendly host, Daina. She invited us for hot tea on a cold day and gave the best suggestions of what to do, see and eat in San Miguel. I look forward to going back to SMA and staying with Daina again!!!
For the price, this was a wonderful surprise. Daina (American pronunciation is Dinah) was the hostess of all hostesses! We arrived in the late afternoon and she was there waiting for us with a warm smile. She showed us to our room which, while spartan, was clean and comfortable. The shower was hot and strong. Daina gave us a map and told us where to get the best food for the best prices, and where all the town's highlights were. The best part of all, for us, was Daina herself. We became friends for life! We even attended one of her Italian Cooking classes. (Monday nights...don't miss it!!) Our 2 week stay couldn't have been better.
