The Dickinson Guest House, within walking distance from Expo-Guadalajara is in the well know Chapalita neighborhood of Guadalajara, Mexico, not to be confused with Chapala, a lakeside community an hour away. We chose this location because it is only a short ride into the historical district, and is just out of the 'noise zone' that are in all big cities.
On the other hand, it is blocks away from the many conventions held at the expo-guadalajara- making it a perfect hotel alternative for groups of colleagues traveling together! Many have discovered that paying the high-end hotel prices for 6-8 colleagues, that will be attending the same event. We offer free phone service worldwide. The kitchen is open 24/7, and a washer and dryer 'service room' is on the second floor. Maid service is on hand for ironing if needed as wel...

James has a great house that I highly recommend! It's located on a quiet street, and is walking distance to many great places to eat. The rooms were nice and clean, with comfy beds. The master bedroom was wonderful and spacious, and has a lovely balcony, where we spent most of our time just relaxing. James himself was very friendly,... more

Casa San Uriel in Chapalita is the perfect residence in Guadalajara for a group of friends to enjoy all of the fun that this city provides without having to deal with the 24/7 noise that most large cities have. We came over from Sinaloa for this years Jazz Festival, with most events at the Teatro Degollado. It is always fun... more

How to get there
Airport: Miguel Hidalgo: 16.8 mi
Prepaid taxis from registered white taxis in front of airport or specialized personal pick-ups can be arranged for you! There are many convenience stores on the way from the airport . If you ask the driver to stop at an Oxxo )7-11 or Mexico) he most likely will. And since you have already paid your full fee, the meter is not running. It is nice just of offer the driver a coke or drink of his preference! The drivers are professionals hired by the airport and know the city. It is usually 20 minutes away.
Activities nearby
There Is A Golf Course Within 30 Mins Drive, Horse Riding Nearby, There Are Tennis Courts Nearby, Water Park Nearby, Watersports Nearby, Nearest Beach: 50.3 mi.
