The Salma Hayek One Bedroom Loft
In 2003, when Salma Hayek was in San Miguel—down the street from here—filming “Once Upon a Time in Mexico” with Antonio Banderas, she was quoted in the local press as saying, “I think this must be the loveliest town I have ever seen.” The town was enamored of her as well. During breaks while she was making the film, Salma strolled the little streets around the Jardin, followed by a gaggle of children. Their mothers scolded them, telling them to give the star some privacy. But she smiled at the mothers and said, “They are no bother…they are the future of the world.”

The Dolores del Rio Studio
She was probably the most famous Mexican star in the history of cinema. Possessed of an otherworldly loveliness, she was the match of Garbo, Dietrich and Crawford. She was frequently called the “Princess of México.”  When she visited San Miguel between films, Dolores usually stayed with her good friend, the great clown, Cantinflas. Del Rio loved it here because, under an oversized bonnet and behind dark glasses, she could wander around the Mercado in the Centro unnoticed. Quite a feat for one of the most public personalities of her age.

¾ bath, full kitchen, shared roof terrace.
