I recently accompanied my daughter and her husband to Guadalajara for a family wedding. I did no where we were staying, but was made to feel at home immediately by the two owners of a wonderful Bed and Breakfast.
Upon arrival, James and Leonardo were there to welcome us with bags in tow! They were left in the entry room as we were brought into a very vibrant and eclectic living room for margaritas! I did not know that my daughter had mentioned that I liked them, but not blended. I suppose they are served often at these specialty lodgings, but the fact that they were as I liked them was a surprise that was eventually shared with me by my son-in-law! Our bags were taken upstairs to our rooms during this time, so when we went upstairs we were ready for a quick nap before heading out to dinner. We chose a place nearby that was near Chapalia park. The neighborhood was beautiful and the restaurant, La Pasta was excellent! When we got back to the house, our family members came over and we had a wonderful time catching up and hearing plans for the wedding. I have to say that the time we spent at this B&B, everything ws made to feel so personal. The wedding was as planned to a great event and our time at this very friendly home will be remembered fondly. Than you guys and Otilia for making us feel so welcomed in Guadalajara after a long absence!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Dickinson Guest House B&B, within walking distance to the Guadalajara Expo Center is centrally located in the new hotel zone in the cities new business hub, and about a 4usd cab ride to the historical district. Although we are not located in the downtown core-we are close enough to still return to some peace and quiet when it is desired! Guadalajara does have a Basilica for those that enjoy even older more ornate architectural gems-if they know they exist and how close they are- to us, rather than the cathedral that most think is the "main sanctuary' in this huge city. The B&B (or whole house rental) is located in Colonia Chapalita- a very well maintained and calm neighborhood, surrounded with several beautiful, well maintained public parks, allowing safe walks day or night to meet many nice neighbors in this middle class neighborhood. Although we enjoy the fantastic murals and cultural history of this city, we offer our guests a quieter neighborhood to enjoy a good nights' sleep, ready for the next days adventure! We also have a shortcut to the very enjoyable towns of Tlaquepaque and Tonala, home of many arts and crafts centers that everyone must see! We take pride in our business services for the traveler that needs fast internet at 100 mbps and Wi-Fi throughout the large home. The free phone service- all inclusive in the price of their room is an added convenience for those who did not purchase a plan for their mobile phone.
