  • Gerd was an absolutely wonderful and attentive host, all the amazing reviews are true! From the time we arrived to the time we left we had a great experience. The three course breakfast he prepared for us was delicious and made us feel like kings!
    San Miguel was lovely, we will definitely be going back soon and wouldn't think twice about staying with Gerd in his beautiful home again.

  • We stayed with Ben for 8 days in San Miguel and had a great time. He is a wonderful host and great conversationalist. Each breakfast was fantastic just as though we were in a fine restaurant. The bedroom is spacious and luxurious with interesting artwork throughout the home. We especially enjoyed sitting on the rooftop patio with the terrific view of the city.

  • I spent 4 days in Ben's place during the holy week with my mom, and let me tell you that the experience was beyond AMAZING!!! Since the moment we walked through the door, the hole experienced was unforgetable, Ben received us with fresh water and flowers, the photos don't do enough justice because his house is so beautiful you'll have to be there to truly see it. The bedroom was beyond amazing, really big and super clean.

    The bed is so comfortable, and there is a big terrace where you can enjoy the view of San Miguel. The house is well located since you do not get the loud noise from dowtown but is is still close enough, just a few minutes away by taxi.

    Everyday we would have fresh water in the our room, and the breakfast was just extraordinary, everyday it was amazing and so delicious, we could have not asked for more!, Instead of going into a hotel, you should go to Ben's house beacause simply you will feel at home!, the neigborhood is very calm and safe!!!

    For sure we will come back, thank you so much for these wonderful days at your place! The hole experience was amazing , the house is BEAUTIFUL and Ben is the most amazing host I have ever met!, This is by far the best experience I've had on airbnb and in any other bed&breakfast.

  • I had the most wonderful first experience using Airbnb. It far exceeded my (email hidden)nno was a fantastic host. I felt so at home. His home is lovely. Everywhere you look there is something interesting to look at, including in my room, which was large and comfortable. Every morning I came downstairs to a full breakfast and my host joined me to chat and provide tips on what to do and see in SMA.He even escorted me to where I wanted to go and made arrangements for my shuttle service to and from SMA! I was there over Christmas and was invited to join Benno, his friends and family for their annual Christmas brunch. He made my time in SMA so memorable. I would highly recommend staying here and I hope to return one day soon!

  • Mr. Benno en un gran anfitrión, desde la llegada fue muy amable brindando un tour por toda la casa y dándome los detalles de la estancia. A demás e un excelente chef es muy buen platicador pues mi inglés no es muy bueno pero pudimos conversar sin muchos contratiempos....

    La casa está increíble y con una decoración magnífica.... La verdad es que la estancia fue 1000% mejor de lo que imagine! esperó regresar pronto...

  • We had a FABULOUS experience at Gurd's place. This place was better than it shows in the pictures. The host made us feel so welcomed from the first moment. He literally received us with open arms. This place is beautiful, clean, and most of all, safe! We recommend this site more than hotels to get a real experience of travel. The location is only a few minutes away from downtown by taxi. We only stayed a night and it was raining, but Gurd kept us company the whole night and made our stay forever memorable. We truly enjoyed all the comforts of his place and appreciate how he went out of his way to please us in every way. Thank you Gurd for the extra bed and the exquisite details of fresh flowers. You made us feel so special by beautifully presenting my favorite breakfast. Gurd also gave us insightful recommendations of where to go and how to travel by bus. We even ran into the "camotero man" and we would never have known what the whistling sound was if Gurd hadn't explained to us what that was. My son and I will cherish this special night at his gorgeous home. We highly recommend this place and are sure you will enjoy it too.

  • We had an excellent time at San Miguel de Allende and really enjoyed our time at Gerd's place which is charming and decorated with excellent details.
    There's so much charm. Gerd welcomed us he was super helpful, too. Prior to our trip, Gerd Benn was quick to respond to our emails and answered our questions, a fabulous host. We have great memories of our weekend and would definitely stay here again!
    Speccially because he is an excellent chef who shared not onlly this beautiful place with a lovely terrace but also his experiences though the wold and his delicious cooking.
    Thank you!!!
