Love this place. It's fastidiously maintained with lots of character. John the owner went out of his way to ensure that my stay in Guadalajara was smooth and enjoyable. The rooms are well equipped and also have wifi.

The reviews by Bill H and jabberjawz are accurate. Casa Alebrijes is the CLEANEST hotel I have ever seen, more than any Four Seasons, Westin, Hilton, or any other hotel, large or small. Our 2nd-floor room was beautiful and romantic, with a great bed. I was a little wary about the lack of air conditioning in late August, but John...

The guest refers to the Jalisco State Police Headquarters (Secretaria de Seguridad Publica del Estado de Jalisco). State police vehicles often pass the hotel on the way to their headquarters just two blocks away making the street well policed. I thank the guest for his kind comments.

The Hotelito Casa Alebrijes is a real winner for gays and lesbians visiting GDL. The hotel is located in the Nueve Esquinas neighborhood, just on the edge of the heart of the city. The neighborhood itself is classic Guadalajara; a bit run down, but the small streets and plazas are peppered with decaying colonial splendor. The hotel itself is very...

I stayed at Casa Alebrijes for just 3 nights. I came to Guadalajara from Puerto Vallarta thinking I wouldn't need much time in Guadalajara--boy was I wrong! Guadalajara is WAY better than Puerto Vallarta---just my humble opinion, but now back to the hotel review. I hadn't planned anything--my typical MO when traveling solo. I sent a message on my iPhone...

This a very nice hotel. The staff was very friendly and my room was perfectly clean. The location is also convenient. I really liked the decoration of the room and the rest of the hotel. I would definitely stay here again next time I visit Guadalajara.

I had a wonderful and very relaxing six nights at this very quiet, very discreet and nondescript hotel nestled unassumingly in the middle of the Centro District within walking distance to just about everything. The host/owner, John, will help you with any questions, concerns or needs. The staff is very attentive (and adorably cute!). Parking is a bit inconvenient if...

Thank you for the nice comments. I agree that the outside of the hotel is discreet and nondescript but the inside is an elegant oasis. Most guests do not bring vehicles and most guests that bring vehicles do not use them while here because it is often more convenient to walk or use taxis and public transportation. My employees and...

I stayed at Casa Alebrijes for 3 nights in late January 2013 and had an excellent experience. The hotel is conveniently located near the center of the city, close to the main cathedral, major museums and plazas. The hotel occupies an older building that was recently fully renovated and tastefully decorated with local crafts and artwork (including, of course, many...

I appreciate the kind comments and am glad this guest enjoyed his stay. I never feel in danger but would be much happier if the streets and sidewalks were cleaner. We keep the area around the hotel as clean as possible but you will surely see some litter as you walk. The streets are narrow because they (and the buildings)...
