Recent guest reviews
Very welcoming and friendly staff. Owner has done a wonderful job of decorating and creating a warm welcoming environment that is secure and worry free. In my opinion, environment is great and structured around a shorter stay verses a longer stay (like ours) in that, other than breakfast any type of food and/or drink needs to be obtained and pretty much consumed off-site. Having some sort of accommodations for quests whereby they can obtain ice for their water would be helpful. Perhaps consider some sort of a guest designated fridge whereby guests could bring a sandwich, a dessert or leftovers back to have at a later time verses having to go out again later and obtain something. Along these lines perhaps also have a guest designated microwave & coffee/tea station with some disposable silverware and napkins. The hotel has some very welcoming tables & chairs in common areas whereby guests could enjoy having something lite to eat that they provided for themselves but current environment & amenities are not conducive to this.
Great location, excellent experience...exceeded our expectations.
Our brief ( 2 nights) stay in Hotel Alebrijes was a delightful experience that we will never forget. Beautiful ambiance, cleanness and friendliness of the staff ( Hello to John and his crew) made us feel like home from the moment we entered his establishment. We highly recommend this place for everyone - its a steal for a value and it's central loation a few blocks from the town square ( Zocalo) is a big plus. Thank you again and we will sure come back anytime Peter and Manuel
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.
John was very accommodating and knowledgeable about the local atttactions, arranged the airport cab and it feels like your a guest in a nice home, nestled in the heart of downtown. Beautiful place
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!
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 community.
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.
