This is a decent hotel, but the listed rating of 4,8 is a big, BIG exaggeration and really misleading. The rating should be 3.7-3.8 the most. Hotel is in a modest residential area, nothing interesting around. The 25 min. walk to Colonial Center is through the streets which do not look too good, are barely lit and ere empty after dark.Not advised to walk there. The biggest issue however is the HEAT in the rooms at night. The rooms have really low ceiling (maybe 6.5-7 ft), and warm up pretty quick when people are inside. There is NO Air-conditioning. The only ventilation, a window, is to the internal patio, which is small and covered by glass roof. Fundamentally this is “greenhouse”. Queretaro has a mild weather, 85F in the day (Summer) and 70-65F at night, but for the rooms without any opening to the outside, it take many hours to cool off. The temp in room is 80-85F most of the night, it is v. difficult to sleep. I was waking many times at nigh, sweating. I guess, most hotel’s tourists are from other areas in Mexico, where now (Summer) is much warmer, so they do not mind this heat at night. But for US and European tourist it is a major problem. I do NOT recommend this hotel for any US, or European tourist, until they install A/C in rooms.

Great city and good accommodation.

We received a warm welcome from the owner and he was kind enough to let us stay on in our room when one of us did not feel well on the day of departure. The rooms were of good quality and spacious. They were fitted with traditional furniture, which added character to the property, which is actually quite modern. The residencia is located in a no-through road, outside what you might call the inner ring road of Queretaro. This makes it secure and peaceful but it also requires a twenty minute walk into th historic centre. As Queretaro is a beautiful little city with a lot to see and a lively night life, some people might find this a drawback but, if you enjoy walking off a meal, it is no problem. The only weaknesses we found were that the television did not work properly and the tea and coffee that were advertised as being available never appeared. We were also kept awake on the first night by a group who arrived very noisily by car on the Friday night, spent a long time checking in and then headed out after midnight to enjoy the nightlife. That was fine for them but it would have helped if the reception could have reminded them that there were other guests present. Al in all, though, it was a very good experience and Queretaro is great city with plenty of other magical ones just an hour away by bus. We would certainly recommend the Residencia Sophia as a good place to stay.

Great service! The front desk person was very attentive and helpful. It is in a good location. However, it is pretty noisy at night, although the fan inside the room helped. We also came back around 3:30pm one day and they had not yet cleaned the room.
