2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
San Miguel de Allende, Central Mexico and Gulf Coast
This beautiful home away from home is a wonderful combination of history and modern conveniences. The 22 inch thick walls keep the quiet interior comfortable and the terraces have some the best views in town. The outdoor covered living room, with cozy traditional furniture, is a guest favorite. Here you are surrounded with beautiful plants and the sights and sounds of San Miguel. There are two lovely, private terraces just outside this area, with views of cathedrals, jardins and all of San Miguel.

The entrance to the apartment is a wall of windows which keeps the 34 ft. x 24 ft. living room, dining area, and kitchen light and bright. There is a comfy queen sized convertible sofa in this area for two guests. The kitchen is fully equipped with a stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, dishes, pots and pans, and drinking water fo...

My wife and I stayed at Alice’s Palace for two weeks around Independence Day (Sep 16) and forward. We picked these days figuring it would be fun to see all the pageantry that Mexico has to offer and we were not disappointed. Fireworks almost every day, marching bands just about every day and church bells all the time. The property...

This gem on Mesones Street is steps away from the main square. It is Right in the heart of the city and the cab stand is across the street if you need to go further and The fares are incredibly low.

The location was extremely convenient, with the ability to walk everywhere within town. It is also a very lovely ONE bedroom apartment, not 2 as the advertisement suggests. 'Second bedroom' is a fold out couch in the living room area with no closet or dresser. We found Alice to be less than helpful. I am a seasoned traveler, so was...

Hello, Christine here, Alice's assistant. Every review for the Penthouse and the studio for Alice's Palace lists our helpfulness, availability, communication before and during the trip, as top notch, except for this review. We pride ourselves on our better than concierge service including suggestions for airport shuttles, goings on about town, and we try our very best to ensure that...
