The kitchen is spacious and well equipped. The outside sitting areas (downstairs & upstairs) are comfortable. The rooms are spacious and equipped with private showers/restrooms. The area... More

The hotel is painted in very bright colors. There are lots of potted plants every where. It is walking distance to the historic center and lots of great restaurants. I stayed in 2 different rooms and both were very big. I especially liked the outside sitting area on the roof. There is a kitchen that the guests can cook for... More

When I arrived at the hotel, I was told that I could stay for only one night although my reservation was for three. I did not want to spend... More

The hostel is very clean and the staff did a great job cleaning our room each day. A breakfast of toast, cereal, fruit and coffee was available each morning. The kitchen is open for anyone who would... More

The place has a nice atmosphere and a good location close to the historical center. When I visit Guadalajara, this is my place to go, I don't even look anywhere else. They... More

My husband and I have been staying at Vilasanta since September 2014, when we arrived to Guadalajara for our TEFL course at ITTO. We didn't anticipate staying more than a month, but three months later we are still here! The place is fantastic and the staff are wonderful, especially Chary, Claudia and Willie. Chary's welcoming smile is enough to brighten... More

I came to GDL to do a month long intensive EFL certification course, and the staff and atmosphere at vilasanta made that possible. They were very accommodating and sweet, and everyone here is willing to hang out and show you a good time, or leave you alone, whichever you desire! The location is perfect, a block from a big park... More
