We decided to stay at La Casa de Las Palomas after reading TripAdvisor reviews and after looking over the hotel's own website.
We were very impressed by the friendly reception as well as the simple but attractive layout and rooms. Our room, #209, was very large for the price of $440 pesos. The bed was a firm but comfortable king sized, there was a small writing desk, a basic place to hang clothing, and an efficient and clean bathroom. The bedroom has a ceiling fan, useful for cooling off.
If there were any deficiencies, it was the lighting. There was enough to see by but no ceiling lamp,if I recall correctly.
Our bathroom sink was in the room, in the European fashion.
There was a modern shower in a stall with a sliding door.
The hot water in the shower arrived quickly and there seemed to be plenty of it.
The hotel rooms are arranged around a roofed atrium, and there's a dance floor on the primer piso, what we'd call the second floor.
On our return, we stayed in a corner room, I believe it was # 106, which had a bit more privacy, although the bedroom had a glassed double door, with gauzy curtains, leading to an airshaft. When the doors were opened, some noise was conducted down the shaft.
Although the bathroom was marginally bigger, the writing desk was situated in the arc of the door opening. One had to be careful if seated at the desk if one's partner was coming in or going out.
The top floor is dedicated to a terrace, equipped for special events and parties. There's a small, roped off area for smokers, of which I was not able to take advantage, due to a severe storm.
The staff is friendly and helpful.
I'm not a big fan of Tonalá, but we would stay at La Casa de Las Palomas if flying out or coming back from the Guadalajara airport.
