“Very Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

We had an event at this beautiful historic Guadalajara hotel. Although I did not stay at the hotel, friends of mine did and they reported that it exceeded their expectations. I had the opportunity to see their room which was absolutely beautiful. Because we were at an event in the evening that included dinner and cocktails we had the opportunity to look all over the hotel in all of its glory. It is an incredible venue. All who attended the event raved about the food in the dining room. And I must say that this is unusual at an event with 50 people. I must agree the food was top notch. The bar service very good. And the prices quite competitive. Whether you're staying at the hotel or just dropping in for a meal, it's a must.

My husband and I stayed here. What a lovely hotel. Decoration is beautiful, stay was really nice. The down part was first night we had a room next to the road and it was extremely noisy. We complained and changed to a better room next night. The breakfasts were included which was great, but we had back stomach and seemed like the chef wouldn't do anything outside the menu, for example no dry toast. Other than that it was lovely.

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.

Dear Guest: We have had some time to do some research regarding your comments and we absolutely owe you an apology. This hotel in fact has a high demand for events which take place mostly during the weekends and on the hotel´s terrace which does not affect our guest. We are sorry you were inconenienced and hope we have the opportunity of serving you again.

This is a real find. old building with real world charm. Every room is different, with lots of art work and unique items. Restaurant is excellent; I had pesto shrimp, and my wife had the best filet mignon she had ever had! Great prices too. Fantastic view from the roof, which is well laid out for parties as well as individual time. On a blocked off street, but you can load in front and they will arrange for valet parking (70 pesos a night). Easy walk to the Cathedral and downtown. But the best part was the service! Alejandro was right there for us whatever we needed, including a trip up the old time elevator! We will definitely come back when we return to Guadalajara.

We lucked upon Casa Pedro Loza, a 12 room boutique hotel and spent three nights there. The staff and service are so very kind and thoughtful. Example, they offered to drive me to the post office to mail my postcards. Breakfast and afternoon cocktails and snacks were perfect in a beautiful courtyard. (Have the nachos and this delicious warm cheese dip!) Each room has a different look and is filled with beautiful and interesting antiques and pieces. You can hear a wee bit of street noise BUT if you shut the shutters and the windows at night, you really cannot hear anything. We had the pleasure of being in the inner courtyard on an afternoon when a group of women were there celebrating something - and then in comes a five piece mariachi band who played for about 1.5 hours. They now have a massage room and the masseuse who comes in when there are appointments is great......this was an enjoyable add-on. There are restaurants within a km or so, but despite walking all over, we could not find one that we found decent or didn't have loud music blaring. We took a cab to an Italian restaurant the hotel recommended - and it too, was amazing. It is called Il Duomo. Back to Casa Pedro Loza - Diana, the manager, was fantastic, as well Miguel - and either would do anything at all to make our stay wonderful - as truly, all the staff would. Everything was really top-notch!

Spent 4 nights here in January. 2 couples travelling together. We liked the hotel for the easy walk to the various historical sights in the old center of town. We walked to and from the plaza Guadalajara (about 5 blocks) in both daytime and in the evening and felt quite safe and comfortable. The hotel is on a street that is chained off for pedestrian only use most of the time so was very quiet. Rooms are on the second floor around a central courtyard. The courtyard is a restaurant where we also had our breakfast. There's a removable ceiling which made for a lovely sky one evening. The downside is the courtyard was coolish in the morning so one will need a sweater for breakfast.
Our room was a nice size but the bathroom was very small. It functioned well but a large person might have an issue with knees, the wall and the toilet lol! Hot water took awhile to arrive but was plentiful and water pressure was good. The TV worked well as did the wifi. We had a small Juliet balcony which let in nice light.
Breakfast at the hotel was very good. It wasn't included in the room rate but we felt it was a good value with an excellent selection of egg dishes, traditional Mexican dishes and huge waffles. There was a bit of confusion the first morning as we read that juice or fruit and coffee were included in a package price...but we didn't ask for the package. This charge was adjusted by the wait staff and from then on we made sure to order the " package" for our fruit/ juice.
A few of the staff speak English but overall Spanish is the language used here. Fresh bottles of water were always available and on our last morning desk staff brought us hot coffee as we were leaving before the restaurant opened.
The lobby areas are beautifully decorated and there's also a roof deck where you could take a cerveza and relax. I think the hotel may used for weddings or special celebrations as we saw a few families all dressed up. A charming spot, good value, and I'd definitely stay here again if I return to Guadalajara.

From my first email to this charming casa till the time we left 12/26 I was impressed with the service. Over Christmas, the lovely indoor patio was open till 4 p.m. Food was tasty. One man waiter show very efficient! Only a couple of small details overlooked at check- in: only one bath towel and no face cloths in r bathroom. And when we asked for an extra glass and some ice in the evening, we were told the bar was closed. After a gentle nudge, we got both! Christmas Day, there was no food or drink availability; but they did rec some places near by! Yeah, KFC! They did arrange for valet parking for r car at a reasonable rate. Advertised as handicapped accessible, I would add caution. The young men at the front door had to lift me up to gain access to the entry. And, the antique elevator worked....otherwise, lots of stairs. The place has a lot of history and some beautiful furnishings. Wifi. Flat screen TV and a great location in the central historic area. I would return.

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.
