This is a quiet property in a relatively central neighbourhood. The public market and a couple of decent eating options are nearby. About 20 minutes walk to the old center. Clean rooms. Staff a little cold.

Great place: affordable, clean, safe, reliable wifi. Booked 3 nights and ended up staying 3 weeks-ask about weekly and monthly rates. The owners are super helpful and friendly and happy to answer any questions about Guadalajara. The location is great. It's in a quiet mostly residential area but there are plenty of stores and places to eat less than 5... More
