The hotel is like an open, courtyard style Mexican home. The room comfortably fit 2 people. The hotel is not air-conditioned, which was tolerable given the climate of Guadalajara. However, there were times in the late afternoon where the overhead
fan was not quite enough. The location was in the central part of downtown and easy access to most restaurants and bars/discos. The breakfast was meager with fresh fruit. The owner was quite knowledgeable about the area, restaurants, and the gay scene.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
The museums were not especially good. Most are free. The one that did charge was a waste of time.
The hotel was beautiful - a wonderfully restored historic property. John, the host, really went out of his way to share his knowledge of restaurants, sites, etc. to really help us enjoy our first visit to Guadalajara.
A very inviting and nice hotel. Staff is exceptional. Owner is very knowledgable of the area, activities, places to go and great restaurants. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Hotel staff is friendly and helpful.
Recommend the hotel for GLBT
This is an excellent b&b for a solo gay traveler or couple. The owner lives on site and is very dedicated to making sure your stay is comfortable. The hotel is spotless, has comfortable rooms, great wifi connection, and a pleasant common area by
the fountain. The location is within walking distance to the gay area and the historic downtown, so that part was ideal. The owner (John) gave me complete overview of the bars, restaurants, and tourist attractions in the area, which was really helpful, as this was my first time in Guadalajara. Breakfast was straightforward (fruit, cereal, yogurt, toast, & coffee), and located in a common dining area on the second floor. I really liked staying here, since it felt more like a home than a hotel (however, as a guest you still have plenty of privacy). I would definitely recommend this hotel to any gay traveler!
