Posada da las Minas is located in the ruins of a mining town and an artist community. The place is quite small. It’s actually two apartments with six bedrooms. The bedrooms are big though, and they carry with it its own theme, anywhere from Victorian classics to playful cowboy. The rooms are really quaint and colorful, it’s an impressive feature of the hotel.
Each room also has its own fireplace and is decorated with rustic flair. Beds are either four-poster or hand carved wood, that you can see much of the artistry in the designs. There are also many artworks in display all around the site.
There is an in-house dining area, service is from breakfast to dinner. The guests eat at a courtyard for breakfast but there is also an enclosed area for dining and a bar right beside it. But if you want something else, there are four surrounding areas nearby.
This is a haven for art lovers and those who would like to learn more about the town’s rich history. There are plenty of galleries nearby, or you can probably join the tour of the mines early in the day. You can also relax in the spa, where the famous temazcal treatment is offered.
Though rustic and seems like you’re transported back in time, the place has internet access and a business center you can hold meetings and other functions. Weddings and other events may also be celebrated here.
The staff is friendly although you may have a hard time communicating as they don’t know much English. The town is quiet during nightfall, so if you’re looking for something else to do at night, there isn’t much.
