We had a wonderful time in San Miguel de Allende. The apartment was great, just as described here and the photos, it is small but perfect for 2 people. It was very clean and it even has appliances like a hotel room. Also it is very conveniently located, only a short walk to the main plaza and everything else. I would highly recommed this apartment to everyone.
Had a great (website hidden)'s Studio: "Ricardo Montalban" is amazing. Great location, excellent services.
Saw three of the places, actually. I have mixed feelings about these places. The decor is really cute- but they are not as clean as they should be- and there is little direct access to fresh air, unless you are on the top floor (anthony quinn, i think?). SMA can be warm and when your one window opens to a 2x2 (approx) space that is enclosed except for an opening three stories up, it feels claustrophobic, and like you can't get access to the cool breezes of the night time. Beyond that, however, is that they need more attention to detail in their cleaning.
The location is very good. It is clean and spacious for one person. May be a bit too cozy for 2, if not a couple. If you want a quiet nights sleep in SMA, which is difficult to find, this is your place! I have spent more than 600 nights in SMA and this is the only place I have ever slept without barking dogs, loud music and fireworks throughout the night. Very peaceful and 8 minutes from the jardin.
We loved our stay at this apartment. Great location, and just about everything you'd need for a pleasant stay.
I'd recommend going out for some "quesadillas" at the market that's just around the corner.
It will certainly be my choice of accommodation the next time I am in San Miguel.

About the Host, Lynn
I have always loved to fix and design. When I began my real estate career, selling new construction homes, I soon realized that the best part of the job was meeting with interior designers and architects and watching as the more artistic elements of the construction fell into place. After 13 years of owning a real estate company, I built two spec homes on magical Orcas Island in Washington State. Then I undertook a major remodel of a cabin on the water. Something clicked in me during that process of transforming the cabin; I knew I had found my passion….remodeling.
Throughout the next twelve years, I transformed some 30 rather creaky homes into fresh, livable residences, all in the Seattle area. Then I decided to turn my attention to designing and remodeling vacation homes; vacation rentals with personality. In 2005, I moved to Mexico, the land of color and craft, and began working there. In 2010 I did a remodel of a 1928 two bedroom apartment in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Then back to Mexico in 2011.
The most exciting phase of building a new place is when everything gets pulled together. I love the details, making sure that one thing plays with another in perfect harmony. I’m always on the hunt for that specific hand-selected ingredient. The beauty of Latin America is being able to design a particular piece that can be made by one of the many talented artisans. Seeing it all come together like a glorious puzzle is very rewarding.
Be my guest at one of eight different and individually unique accommodations in San Miguel de Allende:
“Casa Artistas” on San Francisco Street has a one bedroom casita and two studio apartments with kitchenettes, the Frida and Diego Studios.
”Casa de la Vista, a movie star hide-away” is a three bedroom view home on Salida a Queretaro.
“The Actors Studios” is on Animas Street. It consists of four apartments with kitchens and fireplaces…the Salma Hayek, the Ricardo Montalban, the Dolores del Rio and the Anthony Quinn.
And while you’re at it, check out the “House of Chanel”, a historical, art deco two bedroom apartment in Buenos Aires.
