“Very comfortable. Excellent location.”
Reviewed February 12, 2010

The Casa Rayon is an excellent choice for solo travellers or larger groups, especially if they rent both rooms. The kitchen is very well equipped and a supermarket is a short distance away, so you can easily prepare your meals here. The dining room and living room are also attractive and well appointed.
I liked the fact that the historic centre of Guadalajara was just a 15 minute walk down Calle Juarez.
Thomas and Antonio are very gracious and helpful hosts.
Highly recommended!

Beautiful, comfortable accommodations in the heart of the fascinating and historic city of Guadalajara. Thomas and Antonio were generous with their time to answer a million questions about the city, how to get around, where to eat, and things to do. Couldn't ask for more helpful, friendly hosts.

Thomas and Antonio -- Thank you so much for our wonderful stay at your lovely Casa Rayon. It was perfect! It is important to us to find the perfect home away from home when we are on vacation. From the moment we stepped into your beautifully furnished rental, we felt at home. Casa Rayon is charming and warm - a great place to retire to after a full day enjoying the sites in Guadalajara and nearby towns. We appreciated many wonderful things about the house -- the colorful Mexican decor, the very central and convenient location, tastefully furnished rooms, comfortable beds, the kitchen appropriately stocked with utensils, great amenities, and your friendliness and passion for the city. Vacation rentals are a rather unconventional type of lodging and traveling can be stressful enough without having to worry whether a place will live up to its promises -- your place was better than what we expected. We loved it!

Hasta luego! Jose and Delia

We were a party of three so we ended up renting both bedrooms at Casa Rayon, which is the bottom floor of a nineteenth century home. Because we rented both bedrooms, the whole floor was ours including about 1,500 square feet of living space. It was a quiet place and well located on the edge of the historical centre of Guadalajara. The hosts, Thomas and Antonio, were very friendly and helpful. And the price was right. So give the place a try if you want to be downtown in a clean, large, comfortable space.

My husband and I just spent a month at Casa Rayon and were delighted with our stay. The location is perfect--a fifteen minute walk to the historic downtown and a fifteen minute walk the other direction to more popular restaurants. Plus, in the immediate neighborhood there are charming places to eat and a gorgeous church with a neighborhood plaza. It was also only two blocks from a terrific Spanish school. Even better, Casa Rayon is on a quiet side street, so we slept like babies.
The house itself is spacious and comfortable. Thomas and Antonio have decorated it in a casual Mexican style with comfy sofas and chairs. The kitchen has every appliance and we could make a variety of meals between the electric hot plate, the toaster oven, the rice cooker and the micro-wave. Even had a slow-cooker, but we never got that far. Thomas and Antonio were the best in answering any questions and helping with all of our needs. They cleaned and emptied trash every day and kept us continually supplied with coffee, fresh water and all paper products. They always went the extra 110% for us and yet were never instrusive.
I would say it's worth a trip to Guadalajara just to stay there. Book now though, as they appear to be filling up quickly.

I am glad that we stayed at Casa Rayon rather than a hotel. It was much more private, spacious and quiet. I was greeted by two gracious hosts who were extremely helpful in recommending restaurants, shopping, hot spots and sites to see. The rooms were quiet and comfortable and filled with charming Mexican decor. I especially liked having a living room and full kitchen that added to my relaxing visit. Casa Rayon is an easy walk to restaurants and shopping. I found it particularly convenient that Casa Rayon provided local and international phone service as well as a Wi-Fi internet connection. Whether you are visiting GDL for business or pleasure, Casa Rayon will give you the feel of being at home while offering the modern conveniences that you need to enjoy your trip.
