The San Miguel Poetry Week has chosen a quaint hotel, the Posada de Las Monjas, due to its size and its proximity to the Instituto de Bellas Artes and the center of town. Rooms vary but many have fireplaces and access to balconies or terraces. Although participants are expected to pay the hotel directly for their accommodations, The San Miguel Poetry Week will secure hotel reservations for those who have paid tuition fees in full by December 1st. Since this hotel is an old modified building, the rooms vary greatly but the price will be the same for all and on a first come first serve basis. The Hotel does not provide in room telephone, TV or internet service and breakfast is not included. Participants can expect to pay approximately $50-$60 dollars per night. However, we advise checking room rates with the hotel upon arrival. The San Miguel Poetry Week does not require that participants stay at the Hotel Posada de las Monjas.
