Villa Ganz Boutique Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This lovely restaurant donated an evening stay to one of our local charities in Ajijic, and my husband and I were the lucky bidders. We had heard great things about the small hotel, and were certainly not disappointed. The location is excellent, and the hospitality gracious. The room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. We will be using this hotel in the future when we want an evening or two in Guadalajara to enjoy the many fine dining opportunities.

We so enjoyed staying at Villa Ganz and plan to return. The hotel is elegantly appointed but not fussy, very comfortable. Friendly, helpful staff. A terrific breakfast on the terrace with good coffee and a beautiful garden, too. The location is the best, near the Chapultepec district, lots of nice restaurants, coffee shops and bars.

We were visiting from Chicago. The hotel location is perfect, it's about a 15 min drive to the downtown area. We took numerous Uber rides that were very affordable. There are plenty of dining options within walking distance (blocks) to Chapultepec Ave. My husband and I stayed for 2 nights and had room #12, it was peaceful and literally walked right out to the beautiful quite garden. The garden was an intimate common area for the guests. The staff was professional and friendly. I highly recommend this hotel, its rustic elegance is unique in this hectic city. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because the terrace was not open nor was there parking because the hotel was going thru remoldeling/construction.

We stayed two nights at this charming boutique hotel, which is located in the Americana neighborhood of Guadalajara! The photographs and reviews can not justify how amazing this hotel and neighborhood are. When you arrive they give you a complimentary glass of wine PLUS they had free wine from 6-8 pm in their garden, which is absolutely AMAZING! We couldn't believe that we were in the middle of the city. Our room was spectacular - an amazingly comfortable bed and very clean bathroom. The neighborhood is fabulous, as you are surrounded by restaurants (everything you can possibly imagine). Actually, the neighborhood reminded us of Suaidye (a neighborhood in Istanbul). Don't pass-up on this hotel - you won't regret it! Fabulous!

Wonderful garden inside a great BnB with gracious hostess and a great staff that is attentive to a very high grade of service. Located in a very nice neighborhood with many excellent choices for meals.

Anita Renteria (No. 12) was recommended by Armando and was absolutely perfect. All of the staff were attentive but not in our face. We always had everything that we needed. We are returning for a month in September/October.

This was my second stay at Villa Ganz and I was equally impressed as I was during my first stay. The hotel staff is extremely professional and responsive to all questions. They are very knowledgeable about the Guadalajara area and were quick to arrange for taxi's, private tour guides, and even arranged for dinner to be delivered to our rooms during a rain storm. The location, amenities, and excellent service from the staff cannot be beat. Relaxing in the garden with a glass of wine in the evenings is magical. Villa Ganz is my go-to Guadalajara place every time. I highly recommend it!

We stayed in their premiere suite on the second floor overlooking the back yard. It was bright and spacious and beautifully furnished! King bed was ultra cozy and the bathroom even had a soaking tub. The property is centrally located and Uber could get us anywhere under 35 pesos! Our only let down was the breakfast, it is not in keeping with the "Boutiqueness" of the property. The garden setting is lovely, but the buffet table lacks any appeal. It's your basic complimentary breakfast, a few cold cereals, toast and fruit. For such an extraordinary property I guess I was expecting fresh baking, incredible jams, hot quiche, something a bit more remarkable. We will go back if we are ever in Guadalajara again. Restaurants close by are good and staff are very accommodating.

Amazing stay! Your greeted with wine and fruit in your elegant clean comfortable luxurious room. Class culture all in one. Wine and cheese served daily at 6. Beautiful garden where breakfast is served daily. Tranquility in the middle of a busy town. Walking distance to great bars and restaurants

I have heard so many things about this hotel and I'm glad I stayed here to experience it. It wasn't really my cup of tea it's more for couples but it is worth it. The staff was friendly and the rooms are nice. I will be back but hopefully with a lover.
