Hotel Matilda

Cutting-edge design in colonial San Miguel
San Miguel’s Hotel Matilda takes its lead from the art world. The public areas are swathed in an eclectic mix of art works that range from Diego Rivera’s painting of the hotel’s namesake (and owner’s mother), Matilda, to bathroom walls covered in Spencer Tunick’s photos of naked crowds.

Spread across three small buildings, the hotel, which centers around a chic pool and top-notch restaurant, just oozes design cool. A weekend haven for a trendy crowd who comes to stay or just to visit the bar, Matilda is a modern, electric place to be in San Miguel de Allende.

Tucked away in a narrow, colorful cobblestoned street by a pretty park, the luxury hotel is a quiet hideaway despite being just steps from San Miguel’s main plaza. Its location is ideal for exploring the city’s shops and bars if you can lure yourself away from the hotel’s pool, spa and top-class restaurant first.
