Hostería del Frayle Review

Formerly the Casa de Moneda, where ore was taken to be refined after leaving the mines, this quiet four-story lodging was built in 1673 and turned into a hotel in the mid-1960s. It has whitewashed plaster and wood-beam rooms arranged around a small maze of stairways, landings, and courtyards. Some rooms have excellent views of the Pípila, Teatro Juárez, and Jardín de la Unión, which is a half-block away. Make sure to dine in the adjacent restaurant, La Capellina.
