Villa Maria Cristina


Without a doubt one of Mexico's most picturesque cities, Guanajuato lies among mineral-rich hills just four hours north of México City and an hour from the Bajío International Airport, making it a convenient destination to get away from it all. The city's narrow, cobblestone streets wind between pastel-colored houses, offering never-ending routes to the curious visitor, who will find shade in its many public squares and pavement cafés. The river that flowed through the city was diverted about a century ago, with the former riverbeds opened up to offer tunnels that filter the traffic underground, allowing for a pedestrian city where the pace of life is slow and the atmosphere friendly. Situated on one of the city's most elegant boulevards, a short distance from the center and commanding magnificent views of the imposing La Bufa hill, the Hotel Villa Maria Cristina occupies a Neo-Classical townhouse dating from 1876.

Thirteen sumptuous and spacious suites distributed throughout the house offer a private indulgence and the peace and quiet we all seek when staying in a boutique hotel. High ceilings, large windows, wooden floors and elegant Roche Bobois furniture in warm, dark woods create an atmosphere of understated sophistication for the most discerning guests. Room service can provide you with a meal in the comfort and privacy of your suite. The marble bathrooms contain whirlpool tubs or steam baths, state-of-the-art Bang & Olufsen sound systems create the mood and oversize beds with soft, high-quality linen guarantee the perfect night's sleep. With fine art decorating the walls, these gracefully appointed rooms give the impression of being in a private mansion, yours to enjoy for the duration of your stay, and to return to, time and time again.

On the first floor, with full-length French windows onto balconies overlooking the street, and a fireplace, the Restaurant at Hotel Villa María Cristina is the city's most sophisticated. An elegant, wood-paneled bar with a spiral staircase leading to the wine cellar, offers the perfect place for an aperitif while you browse the menu of gourmet cuisine. The bar boasts an extensive collection of quality tequilas, as well as a variety of spirits and liquors, while expert barman will prepare the cocktail of your choice. Freshly prepared by master chef, the menu changes daily to offer an eclectic and tantalizing selection of Mexican and international dishes, served in an elegant atmosphere of refined taste, or in the comfort and intimacy of your suite. Fine wines from around the world complement the gourmet dishes, and sommelier will be only too happy to suggest a particular bottle to best accompany your meal. A delicious range of desserts, port wines and Sherries offer the perfect way to round off your culinary experience.

Pamper yourself during your stay with a rejuvenating and relaxing treatment in the Spa. Built in the style of a Roman baths, the sunken swimming pool, surrounded by pillars and marble-encrusted mosaics, offers you the chance to exercise, while the adjacent whirlpool will prove irresistible after a day exploring the city on foot. A series of treatment rooms offer the comfort and privacy in which to enjoy one of the many treatments on offer, specially designed to meet the individual needs of each client. A Swiss shower and steam bath are on hand to help you reach that elevated state of relaxation, while the adjacent gymnasium contains state-of-the-art cardiovascular apparatus to help you stay in shape. Easy access to the terrace to enjoy a healthy drink in the sunshine after your treatment or exercise routine further augments the pleasure of the experience.
