Excellent location, 5 minutes from Jardin. Very comfortable and relaxing home renovated in classic mexican style. Stayed for 4 weeks in April while studying spanish at Escuaela Falcon. Enjoyed every minute of it. Would like to return for 2 months next year. CAVEAT: No internet in Buena Vista. Had to go out to Terrace for service.

My sister and I met for a short visit in Guanjuato at the end of Cervantino. The house is beautiful and the garden on the roof is a wonderful place to relax at the end of the day. Internet is included. The location is great - it was a short walk to all the venues.

My husband and I decided to go on a long weekend to Guanajuato for the Cervantino Festival. Our adventure became one of our most treasured memories. Our rooftop room with sitting room and secluded balcony made for luxurious pleasure. Our King size bed was very roomy and comfortable, the comforter and sheets were in brand new condition, clean, and comfortable.... More

We spent four days in this beautiful city and were very impressed with this house. We had the top unit which opened onto a full terrace. The view is phenomenal of the city , especially at night. The unit has a large living room with microwave and toaster. Breakfast was all we wanted to prepare. The bedroom is large with... More

We've stayed at "the house in guanajuato" numerous times in the past few years. As far as value goes, you can't beat the location, comfort, and privacy offered by this establishment. If you're a Gringo, and it's the first time in Guanajuato....chances are, you're going to get turned around, since the town is NOT on a grid/linear system. That's where... More

We arrived in Guanajuato after 15+ hours flying so were very glad to get into the Master Suite and have a few hours of sleep before joining Carl for a 2 hour walk around the downtown area. We found Carl informative, most agreeable and unfailingly helpful. We have done a lot of travel, but hadn't been in Mexico for at... More

This is a mixed review, some very positive points and some definite room for improvement. First the positives; the location is quite good for walking to everything, without being too noisy. Carl was very kind to show us around Guanajuato after we arrived. This orientation certainly was helpful. The room was quite adequate, the king bed was split into 2... More

The House in Guanajuato has two terrific advantages: location (a few steps to everything in the center of town, yet not overly loud), and Carlos the Innkeeper, who is an absolute delight. We stayed in the Don Quijote apartment, which was comfortable, although the bed was a double rather than a king as advertised, and the ventilation system means that... More

This is a newly remodeled hacienda in town and just a few blocks from the wonderful Plaza Jardin. Unlike many places in Guanajuato it is only up a short flight of steps from the street.
