Casa Madonna La Providence Hotel Boutique2.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Location excellent within walking distance to many restaurants , pubs and relatively quick taxi ride to the city centre. Has an interesting common area to this converted old house. All these matter of course however at the top of the list for visitors to this great city is the need to have a reasonable room to come back to and relax and rest to be ready for the next day's activities. This hotel has without a doubt the worst bed I have ever sleep in since summer camp. Major back ache both mornings. Street noise all night and be prepared to wake at 6 am. The shower door was put on backwards requiring one to be drenched reaching around to turn it on. Slow internet. The front door is locked at all times and front desk staff not always quick to respond. Paint peeling all over the ceiling and open wiring in the bathroom . Sadly the hotel has Huge potential with some upgrades . Advertised at $67.00 a night but had to Pay $92.00 USD a night , major ripoff.
Stayed here a few days. It is colonia americana an area with restaurants and botique stores. the rooms are modest but the halls are well furnished. It was secure and felt safe in this place and area. the internet was really slow time and I needed it better for my work so that was frustrating. I paid USD140 total for a three night stay so really happy with this place.
Nice, modest old house converted to hotel. Good location. The furniture is quite old but the atmosphere is quiet and the rooms are clean. A little noise from nearby restaurants early in the morning.Nice personnel.
I thought I found this great place to stay at, great pictures on the internet. We arrived to the address and and the sign said Casa Madonna, it looked nothing like the pictures on the internet. We try to open the rod iron door and it's locked, in order to get in and out of the hotel, someone has to let you in and out. Our first room upstairs was in the same building as the lobby on the second floor. At first glance all appeared to be fine, well the road noise was so bad we couldn't sleep at all, secondly a group of 10 people arrived around 1:00 a.m. we were woken up again as the noise traveled upstairs since there is zero sound proofing of any kind. We requested another room for the next two nights, this room was much smaller, a very small TV which the remote control did not work, the curtain would not open and the bathroom was quite small, in order to turn the water on you had to reach about three feet so of course you would get showered with cold water and have a wet arm while you wait for the water to get warm. The ceiling had peeling paint from water leaks and the wifi for that part of the hotel did not work. They did include breakfast which we ate only once as it was mediocre at best. As it turns out the pictures that are online are from there previous location. The pictures we saw online were on Kayak or once of it's other sites. I won't ever stay there again! There are certain travel websites that still show pictures of there old location, regardless there current pictures are deceiving.
We visit Guadalajara maybe 5-7 times a year. And have never had a problem. We usually stay at some of the Chain hotels But since I had an appointment at the U.S. Consulate to have my USA passport renewed and it was early in the morning, we decided to stay at the Casa Madonna because it was about 6 blocks away. The people at the hotel are very accommodating but the room we were given was terrible. The living room is very nice. The breakfast was very tasty. I reserved the room for 3 adults but this room is definitely too small for 3. We had to move one bed in order to close the door to the bathroom. Candles would have given more light in bathroom then what they had for bulbs. We had reserved for 2 nights but cancelled the 2nd night. If you decide to stay here you may want to check the other rooms - we did not see them but they seemed to be in the house while #13 is away from the rest of the rooms.
Service was great even better than last time. Coffee service served in my room, steam iron and board brought up in an instant. Again great location, walking distance to many restaurants and bars. Pharmacy next door and a 7-11 convenient store across.
Since my arrival I felt welcomed as if I was visiting my grandmother. The room was big and extremely clean/neat. Included Breakfast was very good. Just wished they offered fruit option. Location can't be better. My only wish regarding the room would be a bigger TV. It was very tiny! I would stay here again and anytime I go back to GDL. Rebecca at the front desk is the best, always concerned about my coffee in the morning. Congrats!
This is a small boutique hotel; very well located, family owned, with excellent service & friendly charm. Interior lounge; dining area and two patios for breakfast or relax. Staff are great with assistance and english understood. Free WiFi and satellite TV with a number of english channels. They saved us $$ by getting us a taxi for $100 MXP per hour as we did some touring. Breakfast included with saves $$ and rooms are priced slightly below lower season rates of 3 & 4 star hotels. The biggest advantage is location...........10 minutes from Centro and in a very safe & walkable location. Excellent restaurants & coffee shops within a few blocks and close for Guadalajara by taxi to any site or shopping location.
The Casa Madonna is not the same hotel it once was. The photo shown here is of the old hotel which had a great dining room, outdoor patio, and very distinctive rooms. It moved locations about 2 blocks away and now has lost its charm. The hotel is leased from the the owner of the building and is nondescript at best. I know this because the hotel did Not honor the reservation I made through Hotels.com and charged me more because they get their reservations through some other intermediary reservation system that apparently receives reservations from Hotels.com ans said i did not include children on the reservation. I couldn't contact Hotels.com bc they make every effort for you to not make a direct dial call to their support staff - only 800 calls which do not work outside of the US. The hotel's best attribute is its location - several blocks from Chapultepec and close to restaurants (El Coyote, El Globo, Chapultepec cafes). Street parking is available but with a rental car you want a little more security than the street. I will not stay here again - for the same money there are better values in the same neighborhood.
We Were totally happy with the hotel and the service. However We Were Not Warned about vehicle security issue Especially at night . As a result Was Our car stripped of side mirrors , side molding and hub caps . Remove Costly to repair to follow . Make Sure That You Find a guarded parking space in the vicinity - not a Difficult task.
