Casa Contenta


Our unique, specialty lodging in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, caters to groups, families, and workshop retreats or independent travelers who appreciate good value, easy comfort and stylish surroundings. Casa Contenta is not a hotel or typical bed and breakfast, rather we like to think of it as an “up market” pension, …some call it a “Bed and Kitchen.”

Casa Contenta offers seven charming guest bedrooms that sleep two guests to a room, each with a private bath. One room, Girasol, has a queen bed and with a private patio and sitting nook.  Another one, Buganvilla, has a queen bed and sitting room with an additional twin bed and private garden and kitchen when rented separately.  The other five rooms each have two single beds.   Shared spaces with other guests include terraces, a full kitchen, and living room with cable TV. This traditional San Miguel house offers old world Mexican charm, while providing up-to-date amenities including, state-of-the-art water purification (you can drink the purified water from every faucet) and Bosch endless hot water heaters plus FREE WiFi.

Please note: We don’t offer breakfast, but guests are welcome to store provisions in the kitchen and to prepare their own breakfast or other light meals. A “breakfast basket” can be arranged with the manager to have available each morning at an extra cost.
