Conde Nast named it the Best City in the World. Beautiful San Miguel de Allende, colonial gem in the heart of Mexico. Your guestroom awaits you at Casa Lenita, with your own private bath, terrace with trees and plants, comfy furniture, privacy and tranquility. We share the street entrance, but your space is upstairs and separate. (no handicap access) Stairs to the azotea provide 360 views of the Parroquia and surrounding hills, church domes and gorgeous star-filled night skies. Azotea is spanish for rooftop, where you'll fnd furniture and plants, a sweet spot for the first morning coffee, yoga, reading,cocktails and fireworks watching.
This is my newest updated guest room, it features a kingsize bed that ould also be made up as twins, plus a beautiful in-suite bathroom, lockable closet for your valuables, Guatemalan and Mexican textiles and art by your host. Plus a bit of the host's huge collection of Virgin of Guadalupes and a library of books by regional artists and more. Coffee, tea, fruit available, and coffee maker is in your room. Glass doors to let in lots of light, lots of luscious trees and plants on the terrace to provide privacy. The only downside is that you just might never want to leave. But leave you must, if you want to enjoy San Miguel and it's shops, galleries, museums, concerts, restaurants, jardines, parades, dancers, musicians, all the things that make this the best destination in colonial Mexico.
This is a lively but safe neighborhood in Colonia Guadalupe, where kids play soccer in the street and everyone greets you with a smile. Recently we were officially designated as The Guadalupe Arts District, and you will find beautiful colorful murals on the walls as you stroll around the streets. If you would like, I can book you a full or half day tour of the studios of our artists in this Arts District. I will also find you a workshop or class to fit your needs, be they art, yoga, meditation, spanish or something else. Need a good masseuse, acupuncture, haircut? Just let me know and I'll get you the info.
We're a flat walk to both Centro and Fabrica Aurora, 2 min. and just around the corner to Via Organica market, restaurant, Marcia's Black and White Boutique and El Pato art store. The tienda on our corner has produce, and just about anything you need in a pinch.
Two blocks away you can catch a bus or a taxi if you wish to venture further.
My home is smoke-free, pet-free and scent-free; if you have allergies, this is a healthy and perfect environment for you.

Lovely setting, felt welcomed with little touches such as pitchers filled with fresh water and coffee maker in the room, use of well-equipped kitchen if desired and lovely outside patio, comfy bed and spacious room. I felt at home yet treated like a honored guest!
Excellent accommodations! We'll return and stay again if possible!
San Miguel de Allende was voted the best city in the world to visit by Conde Naste Readers and did not disappoint. We had great fun in San Miguel. However, the biggest treasure in San Miguel de Allende is not the parroquia. I believe the biggest treasure in San Miguel de Allende is Lena Bartula. She is one fine lady.
We enjoyed our stay with Lena very much. The house is lovely, chic and colorful,and the bedroom was just as described, with a wonerfully comfortable bed. The area is very authentic, and a short stroll to the central plaza. Lena was most helpful at all times..
Just returned from a wonderful visit to San Miguel de Allende. Our host Lena, was always pleasant and accommodating. We loved our room. Plenty of storage, colorful and clean. The patio just outside was wonderful on sunny days for our breakfast. Thank you Lena for a great stay in your home.
This is a lovely place! Don't miss it! I want to come back!
This was my second stay with Lena. On my first visit to San Miguel, Lena welcomed my partner and I into her warm, artistic home. I feel in love with San Miguel on that first visit and had to return. I was so excited to stay with Lena again. She is an absolute joy. I feel so lucky to call her my friend.
Stay with Lena, drink some wine on the rooftop terrace, support Mariposas San Miguel, and let your spirit renew!
I can't wait to go back to stay with Lena again and again!
Lena's place - everything the webpages promise, and more. A warm welcome from Lena herself to start off a 3-night stay at her vibrant home. Lena is so helpful with tips, places to see, eat. Tranquil, restful and very quiet after the sealing off of the street-side window. Doors open to the terrace, steps to the rooftop, views all round. Read the guests comments and go visit Lena - you'll love it.
Lena is an awesome host and her house is awesome. My room was cozy and beautifully decorated. The porch and rooftop were a treat to sit out in the sun on. *NOTE* if you stay in the single room which is at the front of the house BRING EARPLUGS. I have never experienced so much loud street noise. But this did not put a damper on my stay by any means.
Hey Chelsea, Your stay might be quieter next year.... my contractor is coming over on Monday to remove that window on the street side. That will then be a solid wall, which I think will cut out most of the noise. Thanks for helping me finally make that decision, I've been considering it for too long!
