There are many good things that you can say about this hotel. The location is a short walk from the centre of Guadalajara. The building is an old fashioned house that had been converted to a hotel and which has a lot of charm and character. A lot of thought has gone into decorating the bedrooms, each which has its own impressive design. The food is pretty good and the staff are generally helpful.
However, there is one major flaw. The noise at night. On our first night we stayed in a room overlooking the main road. It had very little sound insulation and I think only the deepest sleepers could get a good night sleep. Given the level of noise, it is surprising the hotel has not put any sound insulation in the bedrooms overlooking the main road.
After the first night we asked to be moved to a room away from the main road, which the staff did. However, that night the hotel had arranged a Flamenco show and after party in the dining area, which every bedroom in the hotel overlooks. The dancers were practicing long before the show started, stamping their feet and making any chance of resting impossible. We were told the show would finish at 11pm and at 12 am it was still going strong, with the after party continuing long after. I found it incredibly inconsiderate to the hotels guests and shocking that the hotel felt it was appropriate to stage a show and party right beneath where their guests were staying.
I may have just come on one of the few nights of the year that the hotel decides to have a big party, I don't know. But, it didn't sit well with me that the hotel were happy to subject their guests to this noise and it significantly diminished what could have been a nice stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- built circa 1850 to be the home of a prominent local family. Some years later, José Francisco Orozco y Jimenez, Archbishop of Guadalajara from 1913 to 1936, lived on the premises; presumably in the area near what is now the Secret Garden guest suite.During his tenure as Archbishop of Guadalajara, Orozco led protests against the secularization decrees imposed upon Mexican clergy in 1918 as a result of the Mexican Constitution of 1917. Those protest, and others that arose nearby and throughout the western regions of the country, led to armed rebellions against the Mexican government. That war, known now as La Cristiada, was an affront against the anti-clerical statutes of the Constitution and the 10-year persecution of Catholics that followed, which resulted in the death of thousands. During that period, a tunnel was built beneath our property that served as hiding place and provided shelter to pro-Catholic rebels.After extensive restorations that were begun in 2004, CASA PEDRO LOZA is now one of many architectural jewels of Guadalajara’s historic city center. In fact, the property has previously been awarded First Prize at the city’s annual award for conservation and restoration.The house walls are built entirely of adobe and the arches of the courtyard are constructed of cantera stone, a quarried, volcanic rock that is mined exclusively in regions of Mexico and Central America. During the remodeling project, significant efforts were made to safeguard many of the significant design elements of the home, including the original building materials, the mosaic floors, tile, and ironwork.It’s our hope, when you come through the door for your first time and each time you return, that our house is your refuge and that you always find comfort and tranquility here.Room Amenities Each guestrooms has a modern wall-mounted air-conditioning unit, flat screen TV, ipod sound system docking station, telephone and high-speed wireless internet access.
