“Beyond Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Villa Ganz is an amazing boutique hotel in a lovely & safe residential area within walking distance of Chapultepec Commerical area and lots of fine restaurants including Sacramonte, Cocina 88, Italia Mia. This hotel has well appointed rooms, within a converted colonial style mansion. Sally, the owner has done the decorating and introduced some amazing and tasteful antiques. The rooms are very clean. Your visit to Villa Ganz will make you feel like you are at a SPA. From the lovely guest rooms to the drinks in the garden or sitting room and your arrival home at night to your cosy room. The staff are well trained and embrace and anticipate client needs constantly. The breakfasts are most complete and the service is excellent. We are from Toronto and winter in Ajijic. We have visited Villa Ganz 5 - 6 times over the last three years. Sometimes as a couple, other times with family. It is a beautiful treasure, a lovely experience, a wonderful get away spot. Enjoy your visit!!! We always do!!

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent. We have stayed in Room 15 within the main upper floor and also Room 13...

Service amazing! Beds comfortable and had a wonderful bath in a claw foot tub. Sit outside near the large fireplace for breakfast and enjoy the beautiful garden. You are in the heart of Guadalajara and walking distance to many services. I expected it to be louder but once you shut the window it was fine. You feel like a guest in their home.

I had one of the most relaxing holiday of my life. I enjoyed waking up between clean sheets, the beautiful spacious well lit room, with the views over looking the garden. Internet worked and my baths were always perfect! I enjoyed very much the wonderful breakfests. (The first delicious meal I had) It had been nearly 20 yrs since I last traveled to Mexico leaving in Singapore one doest ofetn take the TIME to travel so far. However it was worth it!
Villa Ganz remined me what a warm and inviting place Mexico is. Every one and every place Sally recomened was a pure delight. Sally and her son Silvio, couldnt do enough. I enjoyed the evening drinks with something tasty to nibble on , Before walking out for a bite to eat at the many resturants near by. Over all the whole of Villa Ganz couldnt do enough for me or my daughter I recomened this place for families with small children, A romatic getta way, most defanatly, Traveling alone youll get your privacy or there's always some one there to talk to. Even the business person can find time to relax as well as meet all their business needs.

Room Tip: I stayed in Villa 14. However I had a peek at the room next to mine. There all beautiful.

Our stay at Villa Ganz over Thanksgiving week was just amazing. We have never received better customer service, especially from the manager, Armando, and also Silvio and Manual, who made sure we were well taken care of every time we walked through the lobby or out into the garden. The grounds are amazing, especially the garden for breakfast and the covered veranda with a fireplace that was lit every night. Even the owner, Sally, stopped to talk to us a few times just to make sure we had everything we needed.

This boutique-style hotel and rooms have real Mexican charm, but then you can walk outside the gate into a bustling neighborhood full of great restaraunts and businesses. What an experience!

Thanks to Armando, Silvio and Manual for making our trip a great memory. This hotel is definitely on our list for return visits!

I was booked in here while on business and actually had no real chance to enjoy. This is a small Hotel with lovely inner courtyard at the back. Great for a short break. The staff very friendly, the rooms unique. I had no food so cannot make any comments, however just a few minutes away there are many very good bars and restaurants. This is good place to stay away form yoiur typical chain Hotel. I would say a liitle expensive.

What an amazing hotel. The decor and rooms are just perfect. Every attention to detail has been thought of by the wonderful owners and staff at Villa Ganz. It is paradise in a big bustling city. From the moment you step through the front door you leave the outside world behind. The foyer with its sweeping grand stair case is a magnificent sight on entry. Then you have the best decorated rooms and communal areas that add to the ambience of the place. There is also a garden and patio area to relax in. The location is great with numerous resturants and bars within walking distance. It is also a five minute taxi ride into central Guadalajara and all its sights. Villa Ganz is the best place to call home when visiting from afar. Thankyou to Sally, Klix and staff for making our stay one of the highlights of our mexican adventure.

Room Tip: All the rooms are magnificent. Ask for a tour to check them out. They are all decorated individually...

We absolutely LOVED our stay at Villa Ganz and I couldn't recommend this more highly if you are visiting Guadalajara. We will definitely be back. Beautifully appointed rooms, service from heaven and a wonderful vibe and atmosphere. The food was beautiful too. Thank you to the management and staff for making our stay so special!

Room Tip: I had the room with the claw food tub plus the shower, stain glass window, king sized bed, not sure...
