Old Guadalajara - Mexico - A bed & breakfast

Go to content


Old Guadalajara is an adult Bed and Breakfast in the very heart of the downtown historical district of Guadalajara. Just three blocks away is the Colonial Center -- Opera, main plazas, museums, cathedral, historical monuments and colorful markets -- an ideal location for those seeking unpretentious luxury, fine quality and comfort.  No other house has our superb location for getting to know the Centro Histórico. We offer a refreshing escape from hackneyed commercialism and the clichés  of hotel life in a refined private home.

Our carefully restored and excessively large 16th century town house, formerly part of the Sta. Marí­a de Gracia convent,  is resplendent with antiques, paintings, Persian rugs and other civilized amenities. The large and ample rooms give the pleasure and volume of bygone grandeur.

We provide an ambiance of quality and taste in an elegant,  truly Mexican townhouse without the exaggerations of theatrical overstatement so often found in tourist accommodations.

Several years of experience and success in receiving guests and attending to their personal needs has been rewarded by most positive -- and even flattering -- reviews in various Internet travel pages.

Each of the four very spacious upper floor suites has one queen size bed,  a comfortable sitting area and a private bath. Three of them open onto an interior patio with bamboo, palms, flowers and even potted fruit trees. The fourth has balconies overlooking the street as well as opening onto the interior patio. The owners' separate quarters enable them to maintain a high level of quality and yet assure their guests privacy and personalized attention without the risk of intrusion.

Our silver and linen breakfast,  which includes a variety of fresh juices, fruits, pastries, eggs and other seasonal offerings,  is served in the dining room in a bit formal yet clearly homelike style. Guests often spend hours sipping coffee or tea and chatting. Simple or very stylish restaurants are within easy reach.

Guests can relax in several sitting rooms, use our wireless Internet service for their laptops or  the computer provided for guests' use.  

The house is a quiet oasis in the bustle of a large city. We regret that smoking is not allowed and that we are unable to accommodate children. Guests may receive visitors in the downstairs sitting rooms.
