“lovely, traditional Mexican hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

outstanding service from courteous and professional staff at the desk, kitchen, and restaurant; hotel is well-kept classic building/mansion with a delightful garden; the oj was fresh squeezed and the chilaquiles terrific; and the room was larger than I expected; much more authentic and overall better Mexican experience than staying at comfortable but corporate-feel alternative; I'm returning here on a future trip to GDL

My husband and I live about 3 hours from Guadalajara and visit the city about every 4 to 6 weeks for errands. We have stayed in many hotels in the city. This hotel is the best so far!! It is not a cookie cutter box hotel. The architecture and the rooms are interesting. It is in a nice residential neighborhood close to Plaza del Sol, Expo, a Walmart or Home Depot for convenient errand chores. It is CLEAN!!!!! Everything worked…TV, hairdryer, a/c, radio, lights, hot water…everything! And, that is not the norm for Mexico. The rooms are large and sunny. The bathrooms are also spacious with hair dryers, makeup mirrors, and an amenity basket with almost anything you could want. The gardens were a perfect place to unwind after a day in Guadalajara or Zapopan. The fountains attract many birds which were interesting to watch. It is so quiet and restful you would never know you were in a major city. The staff was friendly, especially Salvatore, who also prided himself on giving service and making us feel welcome. There is a complimentary breakfast buffet which was different each day. Also included was one cooked item off the breakfast menu. We asked the hotel for a taxi to drive us around the city for shopping errands. He was professional, knew the city, and didn't waste our time on circuitous routes. Highly recommend this hotel and we will return.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room away from the street

A very nicely furnished hotel full of charm; large bedrooms; quiet; nice breakfast buffet (included in the price); free parking and wifi. A quiet hotel is not easy to find in Guadalajara; Mansion del Sol was perfect (at least my room, number 10, on the garden side). Very friendly staff. 5 minutes walk from the Plaza del Sol shopping mall; 20 minute bus ride from the historical center. Certainly would stay here again. Just one slight negative, the evening meal, it was OK but not up to the same standard as the rest. I would certainly recommend Mansion del Sol and would stay again without hesitation.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not on the road side

My wife and I stayed here only one night, waiting on a morning flight from Guadalaraja airport. The hotel is in a neighborhood full of chain hotels and restaurants, but once you are inside, it has a unique charm. Salvatore runs the hotel like a guest inviting someone into his home. The kitchen prepares excellent food. There is a beautiful interior garden and hummingbirds! You won't regret staying here for a night or for a week.

This was a great place to stay in Guadalajara. It's an old house converted to a hotel - so its situated in a residential area and very quiet. My room was large, clean and well appointed. The staff friendly, helpful and spoke English. The basic breakfast was good, but eating in the garden was the highlight of the morning. The hotel also serves a complimentary afternoon dessert selection. Many hummingbirds around the hotel as the staff feeds them. The only obstacle was that the location is remote from the city center. There isn't a lot to do near the hotel - just a mall about 15 minutes away by foot - but its just a mall like any other. However, it's very easy to get to the city center by taxi - fare is 100 pesos (about $8 each way).

This hotel is in a residence area, very calm and quiet. Blocks from the first shopping center og Guadalajara, Plaza del sol were the furniture fair takes place.
The staff was ok not quit friendly comparing with other boutique hotel taff.
We asked for a place to eat and the lady from the front desk could not tell us any restaurant.
Be careful when you ask for a taxi. ALWAYS ask for the taxis that are 2 blocks from the hotel because between the front desk and the people the young man that helps you on the dining room or helps with the suitcases have a deal with a guy that has a taxi. Bottom line, if a regular taxi charges 100.00 pesos, Andres charges you 60 pesos more and give this amount to the people that works at la mansion. There is nothing wrong to give a commission , what is wrong is is that the commission is charge to the consumer insted of giving the commission from the real charge. we found out because the taxi driver call the man from la mansion to tell he owed for some of the rides.
Overall, the hotel is very nice, rooms are very big and nice mexican style. We had a room on the first floor that asked to move because had no daylight, so we moved to the third floor to a smaller room but nice the only complain is that the water in the shower had no strenght and was hard to mantain the temperature of the water.
The breakfast is included, very basic but ok because there is no restaurant arround for breakfast

Room Tip: All rooms are ok, just make sure you you try the water from the shower.

Good morning,
We appreciate your comments. We are destingished for our personalized service and our staff is in constant training to improve our service towards our customers.
In our hotel we do have a well known taxi cab service available for the safety of our guests. The door to door service is always better option that the regular street taxis. Both are available at the door or walking distance.
On the other hand, we made a special review on the showers and we did not find any failure. Our facilities are kept on top conditions.
We apologize for the inconvenience and looking forward to hosting you again in the near future.
