Wonderful botique hotel in the historic center, but after my second visit I will not return, Terrible service at reception. Nobody really cares about the guests. (except the cleaning lady and the person during the night shift). If you come by car - be aware that they do not have a parking lot. I had to pay 300mxn per day using 2 different parking lots. The rooms facing the square are far too loud. The street noise makes it difficult to sleep. I do not understand why they can not install window that filter the noise. Wifi does not work properly. Very frustrating ....
Amazing experience even from the time of getting our key to the room, which is an antique one. We stayed in the Soriano room and loved it. It doesnt have a/c but you dont need it in GDLs summer: we went there in July. There is an awesome restaurant in the first floor called CHAI, it was super crowded all hours!! We were so intrigued and had breakfast/dinner there. It was amazing, very affordable and great quality.
I LOVE THIS LITTLE HOTEL! is like staying in an OLD hacienda. Super SUPER cute! DECORATED WITH A MIX of old and modern furniture. It is located down town just across the street of the Ex convent del Carmen. This area is famous to be in the Gay Area. Bars and restaurants all over. The Hotel restaurant has a sitting area outside , super nice for early breakfast! the food is nothing "expectacular" outstanding but good enough for brunch. BTW everybody speaks English.
They no longer offer parking :-( this might make me go else where in the future. Hot water, yes takes for ever but eventualy you get it. Reservation system i do no like, they basicly give you the room they wat you to have, the palce is empty i am the only one in the hotel but i can not get the room i want. They are under new managment, but they are not quite there yet. Reception staff , great.
My big room was clean, bright, and colorful with a view over the street below through those wooden swing open windows you want when you visit Mexico. Tamarind candies at the front desk. The breakfast buffet at Chai, the restaurant in the lobby, was excellent. Great place to stay at a great price. The small plaza right outside the hotel is a gem. Great small scale hotel if you want to stay in the historic centro near lots of good stuff to explore. I'd definitely come back.
Staff was friendly, comfortable room, clean and we liked the restaurant but the outlet by the bed was dead, no hot water in the morning and there were extremely noisy drag racers outside late at night. I couldn't recommend this hotel
The entrance to the hotel is covered by the Chai restaurant. If you have a lot of luggage it can be hard to get through past all of the tables. We got offered a complimentary drink which was a nice touch and was delivered to our room. The rooms are very very nice with lots of great details. The hot water however takes forever.
The manager and staff were all very friendly and attentive. We felt well taken care of. The hotel itself is really cool. The decor is interesting, each room has a different "theme" or style. Our room, the "Vlady" was very spacious and the bed was super comfortable. Everything was clean and organized. The hot water in the shower did take a little long to come out but it is an old house and during cold January mornings it's understandable. The AC/Heater worked great. Complimentary water bottles were a great plus, hardly any hotel will just let you have more for free. The restaurant downstairs is really good! As you can tell when you notice it always has people in it! The location is great, in front of a little plaza and a beautiful church. About a 10minute walk to the historic center. Overall I loved it and I will definitely try to come back when I'm in Guadalajara.
I've stayed here twice before and always enjoyed it. This visit was not the best. Too bad - the rooms are very nicely designed. The building is beautiful. The Chai restaurant has CONSUMED the hotel. We arrived in the evening and every inch of lobby space was filled with tables for the restaurant. The entrance to the hotel was almost completely blocked by restaurant customers, tables, and waiters. Barely enough room to maneuver our small carry on size bags. The hotel credit card terminals are the restaurant terminals so I was not able to use my MasterCard Hotel Only spending cards at...wait...my hotel??...because the 'hotel' is designated as a 'restaurant' merchant. The wifi does not work in the rooms...or maybe there were just so many diners that no signal was left for the hotel guests! I think this will be my last stay here...and too bad because I've done nothing but say positive things to everyone I know - not realizing how bad it has become.
My husband and I stayed at the Del Carmen Concept Hotel for a weekend and enjoyed the hotel very much. You can't beat the location and the room we stayed in (Tamayo) was very clean, had fun decor, spacious and comfortable. It was missing the usual basics like a coffee/espresso maker, ice bucket or small refrigerator, but that is to be expected at a boutique hotel, And there is a coffee shop right downstairs! We were right over the restaurant/bar and it was VERY loud until the wee hours (it was a weekend). We live in a major US city, so the noise didn't bother us too much, but I could see how it could be a negative for others. The hotel staff was very friendly, spoke English and were helpful with restaurant reservations and leaving our bags there on check-out day. Also, the wifi worked very well. Our only gripe with the stay was that they said the credit card machine wasn't working and asked up to pay cash. I have not heard of this before and we usually like to use a credit card for hotel bills. I would definitely recommend the hotel to travelers looking to be in the middle of everything but still want a safe and comfortable space. I will stay here again on any return trips to Guadalajara.
